      Worst I've ever tried so far!

      By PrinceFangirl

      from Northwest Indiana

      Comments about SheaMoisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen, Grow and Restore Shampoo:

      I got sucked into the "Shea Moisture hair product is bomb for Black hair" hype and bought this shampoo and the matching conditioner to replace another equally sucky formula by this same company. Maybe years ago SM really was good for Black hair, but it is not good for my hair. It tangled my hair so badly that it took forever to untangle and it didn't make my hair soft at all. I wish I could've returned it in time but I didn't, so now I use it on my synthetic wigs. Works ok on them. *shrugging* At least the wigs get clean.

      Love how this shampoo has improved my hair! Mixed with other Shea moisture products, my hairr no longer needs gel, sprays, or mousse. Although, I have to say the conditioner doesn't do much for me at all. And I've noticed my shower drain clogs often with use of this product

        Comments about SheaMoisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen, Grow and Restore Shampoo:

        I used the shampoo and conditioner 3 times I thought it was okay at first...but I had to stop because every time I used it my hair would come out 3-4 strands at a time. It got to the point where it was coming out during the shampoo and the conditioning. I always used a wide tooth comb or a wide bristled brush to detangle before and after the shower....it only made more hair come out after the shower. Since I switched to a different product I don't have the problem anymore. I think my scalp is just to sensitive.

            Comments about SheaMoisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen, Grow and Restore Shampoo:

            I tried the travel size version because I was not happy with my other SheMoisture hair shampoo/conditioner, however, this shampoo was a great surprise. I normally wash my (thin, dry, 4c) hair twice a week to avoid build up on my oily flaky scalp. I used this shampoo after not washing my hair for two weeks. After just one wash my hair was already bouncy and my scalp was clean. After using this shampoo twice, I already have zero flakes or build up in my scalp. I honestly feel like this shampoo is helping to regulate my scalp's oil production. I am so surprised that I can see such a difference so fast especially when Creme of Nature, Trader Joes, Apple Cider Vinegar, Selsun Blue, ORGx, and other Shea Moisture shampoos didn't work so well. I will be buying the full size version.

                I know from research that black castor oil can aid in regrowing hair, and I am thinning quite a bit....it doesn't lather well and is quite oily but I was surprised how soft my hair was after it dried. Whether or not it will help regrow my hair...I will have to use this for a few months before I could comment on that.
