Will not buy again

By Neeska

Comments about SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter Extra-Moisture Detangler:

Did not work as a detangler at all but okay for a leave-in conditioner. Had to purchase another detangler to use with it.

    Comments about SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter Extra-Moisture Detangler:

    I love this product and had a small heart attack when it was gone from Ulta's website for a while. I use it for 2 purposes:
    -Last step when in the shower: after I've already squeezed the water out of my hair and before any styling product, I put this in. It holds moisture in my curly hair, gives great slip, and helps keep frizz at bay.
    -Before bed: I spritz my hair with water, put this in, and put my hair up in a pineapple. My second day curls are so well defined and look even better than day 1, specifically when I use this product at night.

      Comments about SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter Extra-Moisture Detangler:

      I have very long, course, and thick curly hair. I also have many different curl patterns (why my hair tangled so easily). This stuff works like magic for my hair. It's cut my detangle time in half, it strengthens and moisturizes my hair. Now I'm not one who detangles everyday, so this stuff even works if you haven't detangled in a long time. I will keep buying this every time.

              Comments about SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter Extra-Moisture Detangler:

              I was super exited when I bought this product because other Shea moisture products have been doing wonders on my hair. First application the smell was terrible but it made my hair crazy soft and smooth. It was soo easy to comb and my hair felt amazing. A few days later I began to scratch my scalp like a maniac and it just wouldn't stop and got worse until I washed it. During the wash the smell of the detangler was very pungent and spent about a week or more before it started to fade away. Still haven't been able to find out what ingredient is causing this incredible itching but bottom line it's very irritating. Great for my hair but terrible for my scalp. For me, it was a waste of money. I also had to add natural coconut oil to give it slip.

                  • Q:

                    I have coarse porous color treated Caucasian hair that is dry and constantly tangles. I'm also prone to frizz if I don't heat style. I've been using the strengthen and restore shampoo and conditioner, but my hair still tangles. I also want shine. What products will untangle, tame frizz and add shine to my hair?

                      A:

                      For your hair needs, we think the Raw Shea Butter Line may be a bit heavy. However, this is exactly why we formulated our Fruit Fusion Collection to help give those with straight hair types the same great moisture without all the weight. We would recommend you start out by using the Fruit Fusion Coconut Water Weightless Shampoo and Créme Rinse. Then, if you're loving the results, you can pick up the Hair Masque too.

                      The Raw Shea is great for transitioning or super damaged hair that is limp and needs strength, while the Super Fruit Multi Vitamin smoothes and defrizzes the hair leaving it knot free and stronger. If you are looking for smoother, frizz-free hair we'd suggest the Super Fruit.

                      After shampooing, apply from roots to ends. Comb through for even distribution. Do not rinse out. Style as desired.
