      I tried this with the matching conditioner and I absolutely LOVED IT! I just took my hair out of braids and this process can usually be painful as my hair (natural, no perm) is VERY tangly..... when I tell you..... I went to lather with the shampoo and my hair literally detangled itself. I normally will comb my hair while I'm washing but with this shampoo ...... I didn't have to reach for the comb not once!!! My hair was so soft after using this. I think I've found my new KEEP!!!

        Comments about SheaMoisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen & Restore Shampoo:

        This is a great shampoo depending on your hair type and how often you like to wash your hair. It smelled soothing and cleaned my hair thoroughly. One bottle enhanced my hair health from roots to ends, and left it very soft, but it contained too many heavy oils and butters for my thinner hair. I prefer to wash my hair every 3-4 days so that it's not dried out, and this shampoo required I wash it every 2 days unless I wanted to do an up-do. My hair was sooner to appear weighed down and thinner. This was the most effective SheaMoisture shampoo I tried. I'm also not entirely impressed with their marketing techniques as a company, so I've discontinued purchasing from this brand.

        Dissatisfied

        By Soila

        from Santa Cruz

        Comments about SheaMoisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen & Restore Shampoo:

        I tried this product along with the conditioner for a total of 3 months. Hair immediately starts feeling oily. I didn't want to give up so quick on this product that is why I kept using it, but after 3 months (about 3/4) of the bottle I noticed my hair super greasy and with a funny smell. I wash my hair every other day and this product didn't seem to do any cleaning whatsoever. My scalp seemed itchy at all times and always had shampoo/conditioner residue. I finally gave up, I started using a Matrix shampoo and with one rinse my hair felt so much better.

        The Best!

        By Kae

        from Indiana

        Comments about SheaMoisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen & Restore Shampoo:

        I love this product, I don't really understand the bad reviews but I guess everyone's hair is different. I try to use all natural products on my hair without sulfates and after I prepoo, this is the only sulfate free shampoo I can use that will get the oil out of my hair. But it doesn't strip my hair of moisture at all!! I'm about to run out of this shampoo and I know I'll have to immediately buy a new bottle because I can't be without it! I haven't seen much of an improvement with hair growth, but I've only been using the product for a few months and definitely not every day. For reference I have fine, 2b, low porosity hair.

        Comments about SheaMoisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen & Restore Shampoo:

        I have naturally wavy/curly hair and recently I have been noticing that I needed a shampoo and conditioner that moisturizes my hair and repairs some (minimal) split end damage, as well as, help to control frizz. I've had this product for at least two weeks now. Although it works very well and does the aforementioned needs, I can rinse and rinse my hair and it will feel "weighted down"; I also noticed that I am now having to wash my hair every other day, and if I do not, I will start to looks greasy. I'm not sure if it really is cleansing my hair or what. Also, it leaves an obvious brownish color residue in the bottom of my bath tub. :(

          Comments about SheaMoisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen & Restore Shampoo:

          I purchased this in store and i love how soft this makes your hair feel but I stopped using it because it clings to your hair. Kind of like how after a shower, once your hair dries and you noticed you forgot to rinse off some conditioner. It feels greasy and itchy. Well this is what this shampoo does to your hair even after rinsing it really well. I'll stand under the water for several minutes rinsing the shampoo out and making sure I got all of it but once it dries, there's greasy itchy spots. No matter how much I rinse it, It always happens! Only with this shampoo! I stopped using it and i no longer have that problem.

          • Q:

            I have heard about the SheaMoisture line. What shampoo, conditioner and styling product would you recommend for color treated hair that is frizzy even after blowing it out? I am a Caucasian who has had keratin treatments in the past. The results are always good. Once the treatment wears off my hair is frizzy even though I use the products recommended by my hair salon. I would like to achieve a smooth look with shine without a keratin treatment.
