Most Helpful Positive Review Great product
I have naturally dry hair. It is sandy brown and I am African American. I purchased this product and the shampoo. I had contacted the company to try to get samples but they did not have samples so I decided to spend my money and try it. I am very pleased with both products. The shampoo has great moisturizing properties. I could run my fingers through my hair while shampooing, that never happens. This conditioner has great comb through and it immediately changed the texture of my ends which are always dry. I love the smell of the product also. I will be purchasing again.
Most Helpful Critical Review Didn't Live up to the Hype
I have tightly coiled Afro textured hair that needed hydration and some protein due to dryness and mild breakage. This product claims to deliver softness, HYDRATION, and "protein power" so I gave it a try. I used this on clarified hair so I could get a true read on how well this works. All it did was soften my hair a little bit. That was it. Actually, my hair had the same look and feel after rinsing this product out as it did after I rinsed out my instant conditioner...no difference. There was no enhancement in my coils either, a sign that a conditioner has truly hydrated my hair.
Since I have low porosity hair I used heat w/ this because when I was applying it I noticed it wasn't soaking into my strands very well. After 35 min, I noticed that most of the product was still sitting on top of my hair. Next day, my hair is still breaking and barely moisturized. Don't know why everyone is "hyping" up this treatment because it was no more effective than a basic conditioner. Didn't feel like a treatment at all.

I used it on my super dry, bleached dyed hair and it made it so soft. My hair also felt a bit stronger than usual, less breakage.
I have nice hair now??

I suffer from a terminal case of the caucasians & also have severely damaged hair due to a decade of box hair dye(I know it's bad but I'm poor), blow drying, other heat styling tools etc. I've used some mask treatments in the past but they've never lasted more than a day I've tried so many home remedies, pricey conditioners- you name it I've tried it, all have failed to not have matting, knots & tangles happen with me going about my normal day. I came across this one day while Google searching heavily for another product to at least try & see if it can help me & WOW am I going to need therapy (crying just thinking about it) if they ever discontinue this product bc it makes my hair feel like I shaved my head, grew out my natural hair & actually took good care of it. This FOR SURE delivers its promise of repairing & helping severely damaged hair look & feel healthy again (and to emphasize once more NO MATTING or KNOTS even during very high winds!) I use it after I shampoo & leave it in wet hair for 15 minutes in the shower letting the steam work with the product & my hair, then just air dry & bam! Beautiful shiny, soft, voluminous hair I can run my fingers thru all the way with no snags
Best for thick curly hair

I have a lot of hair and used a lot of hair masks but this one beats all of them! This is great especially during fall/winter time. Hair is so soft after this is this off.
Learn to Read The Label!
MoCa from undisclosed
So, I thought this was another twist curl cream. I took a look at the packaging but didn't read the label and certainly not the directions. For so long my hair has been dry and brittle, it's a combination of medication and any and all environmental issues. I was between washes and decided to apply the hydrate + repair protein power treatment. I left it on for days and then had it washed. It is definitely a strong treatment. Now, here's the part that I found funny. A few days later, I said I need to write SheaMoisture and tell them this is not a twist cream, it is a treatment mask. LOL, well had I read the label, Uhm, I would have known SheaMoisture didn't need my advice. They know exactly what they are doing. Read the label and the directions. You are supposed to rinse the treatment after 10-15 minutes, not days. It was by accident, that I thought it was a cream for twisting and wanted to see how it worked without reading the label. Later to find that the treatment should be used as a treatment and then rinse. Nothing else. SMH, LOL.

I love this mask and the leave in conditioner spray from this line. The mask visibly improved the health of my hair in the first use and my ends feel less damaged after using the deep conditioner and leave in conditioner

I've tried this product one already and it has done wonders for my hair. I have 3c/4a/4b hair texture in different parts of my head and I noticed after one use that my hair is very soft and fluffy. I proceeded to straighten my hair and I noticed my ends are stronger and has stopped breaking which was my biggest problem.
Ang from California
Not only does this provide moisture and east detangling, it gives immediate strength to my hair and it smells really good. Such a good protein treatment for the price!
best thing for health care
Sarah from Orlando FL
best treatment helped my hair from all the damage from heat products I used to use daily. now it's a great way to get a deep conditioned mask at home versus at the salon
great for my damaged 1A hair!!
SweetViolet from undisclosed
for reference, I use this once a month. i also have long (a couple inches below the waist) 1A hair that is chemically treated. ik this product isn't recommended for my hair type but the first time i tried it i knew i had to purchase the whole tub. my hair was noticeably softer & shinier + i rlly love the scent of the product. i had chosen to pick this up bc i experience a lot of webbing & tangles & it rlly helped lessen that issue. i wouldn't say it completely eliminated them but i noticed a drastic change fs :)
Helped my damaged/bleached hair feel normal again!
Kelsea from Lansing, MI
I recently bleached my hair and the texture of my hair has been HORRIBLE. I've bleached my hair before and never had this problem so I was at a loss. My friend recommended a protein mask so I bought this. And my hair feels so much better! My natural wave has come back, it doesn't feel so dry and tangled, and I can go a couple days without conditioning and my hair isn't a rats nest. So I definitely recommend! Especially for color treated/damaged/dry hair.
So from Boston
This stuff is amazing and made my hair silky and hydrated when it was dried and brittle. You have to really wash it out when using it so it won't leave a waxy residue.
Leaves hair heavy and dull
Kalee from NJ
I have fine long color treated hair, so it's a delicate balance to get the excess oil off my roots, but also pamper and moisturize my hair. I usually do this by using a hair mask once a week. I had high hopes for this product because it boasted of good hydrating ingredients with no sulfates, parabens ect. However I noticed when I used it, my hair didn't feel softer and instead looked more oily and lank then before my shower. It felt like it hasn't fully washed out in the way my other masks had. I gave it a few more shots, trying to vary the time I left it in, the amount used, the application. Eventually I read a review pointing out that this product has wax!l in the ingredients, something left out of the pictures of ingredients online. I checked my container and there it was. No wonder my hair felt gross, the wax was hanging around in my hair. So I've tossed this in the trash.
Not very hydrating..
Eve from Arizona
Used the whole thing as I am not one to waste but didn't find it did anything to help my hair. I have dry ends and this didn't help. Won't repurchase.
JGal from TN
Started the CGM I assumed my hair needed protein. Found out the hard way I have low porosity hair & am very sensitive to protein. My hair looked so damaged, like some bad bleach jobs I've seen. It felt like hay & like all the cuticles on my hair strands were standing straight up.
The formula changed & it has wax now also. Otherwise I would say this is a great protein treatment & def packs a punch!
INCORRECT INGREDIENT INFORMATION.
Jenny from undisclosed
This mask contains WAXES ‼️. The company does not report true information on the page under the pretext of unexpected ingredient changes. I had a bad shopping experience, and I should have thrown the product away to trash.
It's working!!! Hair looking healthy again
Michellefg from undisclosed
So I bought the small samples for this product and the manuka honey and mafura oil intensive mask. I bought a sample for each one. And I tried the latter first and I didn't really love how it left my hair. My hair has weak loose curls and i have brown hair and i recently got blonde highlights so my hair is super dry and frizzy. The latter didn't really hydrate my hair. However the former (the first I mentioned) really worked for me! My hair looks healthy, shiny, feels soft and hydrated, and my natural curls are back and they look bouncy and resistant. I will be buying the full tub! The first photo is the first one i tried and the second photo is the second one i tried (the better one).
Get it you need it
Nani from N/A
If your a curly girl with damaged or color treated hair get it, or if you wanna use to prevent any damage get it. Worth every penny.
leaves hair feeling matte
allie from california
do not recommend. have used it twice now. I have shampooed, protein treatment (per directions), then rinse.
both times it has left an awful "sticky" and "matte" feeling in my hair once my hair dries. my hair feels gross honestly. I have wanted to wash my hair a 2nd time after the treatment but I don't want to "wash away" the product so I just wait till the next wash day to wash it out. will not be repurchasing.
For overly processed, severely damaged weak hair
CrysIce from undisclosed
My hair was beyond killed. I lightened it twice in one day, used color oops In the same week, and the result was fragile, gummy, weak hair that broke as I combed it even gently. I was scared I will lose my hair. Then 2 people recommended me this product so I bought it. I applied to dry greasy hair (in between washes) and left on for what the mask says. When I rinsed it out no shampoo was needed!! My hair was soft and felt restored. One person told me my hair looked healthy. As for usage I hope to use this 1 to 2 times a week. Thanks Shea Moisture for such a great product! Not

I didn't use this on my hair, since it isn't really damaged. But my moms is and after one use her hair was a lot softer. Before her hair was rough. Totally recommend
Great for dry curls
Brittany from NC
I have really dry hair with a 2b-3a curl pattern. This is great when I need moisture with a touch of protein. It leaves my hair soft without weighing me down.
My favorite conditioner!

It never fails that I always come back to this one. It's so moisturizing and smells amazing! My family all has thick hair and it works perfect!

This is the best "drug store" hair mask I'be used on my hair. I have dry hair and it was not curling the same after I dyed it. This mask gave my hair so much moisture and my curl pattern returned after 2 uses.
I absolutely LOVE this product❤️❤️

My hair was so brittle and dry but after using this product, my curls are really popping and the brittleness has improved. I used it on my husband's hair and recommended it to other family members. You rock Shea Moisture!!

Can you use on dry hair or dose the hair have to be wet?
