Most Helpful Positive Review This is my first time...
This is my first time using any Maui Moisture product, but their Heal & Hydrate + Shea Butter Hair Mask (for dry, damaged hair) has made such a fantastic impression on me that I'll definitely try their other products once my current hair stash gets low. I love trying different deep conditioners but held off using this one for months because I was having what I thought were great results with Shea Moisture's Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen and Restore Treatment Masque, which really defined my natural, low porosity 4b/4c curls and helped with in-shower detangling. But after using this one, Shea Moisture has some serious competition, baby! At first, I didn't think I'd be super wowed as Maui Moisture's deep conditioner isn't quite as thick as Shea Moisture's. It has a creamy consistency that I thought might be better suited for someone who's not of African descent or doesn't have naturally coily hair. But I was so wrong...and delightfully so! After saturating my hair in product (I'm fairly heavy handed), I put on a shower cap and let the product do its thing for about 30 minutes while still in the shower. The instructions recommend 5 minutes or so, to which I say, "Pish Posh!" A 5-minute DC ain't gonna do nuthin but make me mad as I mentally calculate how much money I'm wasting as suds collect at my feet. After the half hour, I started to detangle with my wide-toothed shower comb and was shocked at how easily and quickly I was able to do so. I don't separate my hair in sections to wash because I ain't got that kinda time, so when I tell you that my comb nearly glided through my hair, that should let you know this DC is fairly magical. And the icing on the cake was that Maui Moisture's product didn't strip my hair as Shea Moisture's does. My hair felt well-moisturized and heavy/weighty in a good way, if that makes sense. I think the aloe leaf juice in this product is what did wonders for my hair. I only have 1 slight con for this product: it smells a little weird to me. Not in a bad way, though, it just has a weird citrusy smell. But maybe I'm spoiled because I'm used to Shea Moisture's Play-Doh scent (Mmmm...). Either way, if you have hair like mine, don't sleep on this product. Or, nevermind...maybe you should since that'll leave more for me! Maui MOISTURE Heal & Hydrate + Shea Butter Hair Mask
Most Helpful Critical Review MADE MY HAIR FALL OUT
I bought this around a month ago and used it every day for a week. My hair has been falling out in clumps since the fourth day of using. I have bleached hair that is damaged, the mask made the hair even weaker and my hair is now snapping just before the root and falling out. I haven't dyed my hair in 6 months and haven't changed anything else in terms of consumption or products used in my hair, so it is this product that is making my hair fall out.
DO NOT USE. Avoid at ALL COSTS if you have bleached hair.

Loving this hair mask I decided to try! The best part is that you only need a little bit. I will probably be able to make this jar last for at least a year! WORTH the buy!
Favorite mask ever!!!
Brooke from Colorado
I love this mask!! I have super dry thin hair and this worked wonders! Left my hair feeling amazing after each use. I use this mask as a conditioner once a week and noticed a huge difference in my hair!! Also promoted hair growth for me.
Don't buy this product
Hailey from Minnesota
I loved this product. It made my hair smell so good and feel so nice but then I noticed my hair started thinning and now it's falling out…
Seaairuh from Connecticut
I bought this shampoo and conditioner based on the good reviews and things I had heard. My sister used this in the past and told me she hated it but I figured our hair is different so I'd give it a shot. BAD IDEA. No matter how much conditioner I use, or how gently I wash my hair my hair feels awful after washing. It's a tangled, dry, straw like texture that is impossible to brush or comb out wet or dry. I cannot wait to run out and never use this product again. My sister had the same issue.

I used this with the conditioner and it made my hair so much better. It helped a lot with my damaged hair and made it so much healthier, but it also made my hair smell bad.
left my hair like straw
Brashlee from Indy
I was very excited to try this because I recently purchased the curl quencher cream and loved it so much. unfortunately this product missed the mark for me. it left my hair feeling like straw when I rinsed it out. it also left my scalp feeling dirty, like there was a heavy film on it, despite shampooing twice. this is a definite pass for me.
Smells and works great
mr2k from California
I use this as an occasional conditioner, when my hair has been stressed a lot. My hair comes out very soft and smooth and easy to manage. Very happy with this purchase
Hair fall? Test and resolve.
Cobra from FL
I saw lots of negative comments say "hair falling" because of this shampoo. To be honest, I experience lots of hair fall during the shower too. Thus today I test it with my bang. It is a smaller part so I can easily see. Good news is, during the wash, 0 hair falling from my bang because of this shampoo and conditioner.
I think my hair falling during shower is because of I used very strong brush (tangletweeze for thick&curl hair) to brush my hair during the shampoo time(I have thick but straight hair) I believe I should change it to a much gentle brush when my hair is wet(my hair is past tailbone long, so I must brush them well during shower, if you have short hair you truly don't need to), the wet hair is very weak hair, I just learned it. Another thing is lots of people are so allergic to nuts, the high contain of nutty oil in this shampoo may make you have some reaction. Also the not enough rinse cause the root buildup make your hair falling too, make sure to use enough water to rinse well.
Also, it is normal to loss hair each day during the shower...and even daily life. There has a lots of dead hair in our head, during the water push, they falling away easily than in air. When they dead, new hair growing back.
If you want to bring your volume to another level or really concern of your hair falling, another solution for hair falling is to get a sea salt scalp scrub, it can remove your root buildup and dead skin, healthy scalp protect good hair.
I have been used this product for 2 years and I still have big volume of hair. When I go barber to do hair cut they need to charge me extra $20 for my length and volume...would this tell you something? If the product actually will affect my hair in bad way, I would not still have such volume long hair after 2 years of using! :)

theres nothing bad about this product it helped my damaged hair made hair smell bomb
My only shampoo to use
Waterloo from Clearwater FL
I used this shampoo and conditioner for almost 2 years, and it is truly my go-to shampoo. People give compliments on my hair all the times.
If you say this is a bad product please make sure you know how to use it first:
Put shampoo on your hair, massage well, leave shampoo on your hair for 1-2 mins. Plus if you have brush to brush your hair well during the leave on.
Rinse well, put conditioner on your hair for 2-3 mins, gently brush again.
Wash your hair 3-4 times per week, don't do daily.
I have past-tailbone long very thick hair and it truly give my hair beautiful shine.
It's good for the cost
Tails from Texas
I don't know why people are saying their hair is falling out due to this product but I've been using it for months and that's never happened to me before and I have extremely damaged and colored hair. If you want my advice it's good
Nikki from Florida
Love the smell and works great with dry damaged hair.
Kira from AZ
I bought this shampoo because it's safe to use on dyed hair. Ive only been using it at the roots of my hair and not the ends but I've noticed my roots are more moisturized and shiny. Good results for a decent price. It smells really good.

Makes my hair feel so fresh clean and hydarted, will countine to buy
:) from FL Sanford
Smells nice, is somewhat hydrating but not a crazy amount and is more of a liquidy consistency (not very thick or creamy). It's lasted me like 5 months and I have mid length hair. I won't be buying it again tho, I want a more hydrating deep conditioner
Yes, I will purchase this product again.

MADE MY HAIR FALL OUT
emily8154 from Indiana, USA
so I have the bottom of my hair bleached and dyed. And i also had quite the split ends. I thought this would work and my hair is really not that picky with shampoos. But PLEASE DONT PURCHASE THIS. it literally MADE MY HAIR FALL OUT 2 weeks after I used this prouduct. So many of my hair kept FALLING OUT FROM THE ROOT, everytime I would brush my hair, it'd be such a mess or when I would straighten my hair, THE FLOOR WOULD BE COVERED IN HAIR. I literally am crying, this has never happened to me with any other shampoo. Please save yourself from this :( Im usually not the type to leave reviews but this had to be said.
Made my hair worse
Brie from Nashua
I bought this hoping to get my hair healthy again and it made it feel tacky and tangled it very much. I would never buy this again.
HOLY GRAIL PRODUCT.
Pella from Greenville, SC
I am SO sad that this is out of stock right now. This is my favourite product, I love it to death. I've tried a bunch of fancy curl creams and I still come back to this, even though it's meant to be a mask. It pairs perfectly with a good gel or mousse. If your hair doesn't like shea butter or coconut oil, don't get this. Otherwise, absolutely do! This product is the reason I don't straighten my hair anymore.
