Most Helpful Positive Review It just works
I love this leave in styler treatment. It works beautifully for my frizzy and curly hair. I love the pump on it , you can control how much product you want to apply , and this leaves your hair feeling so soft and pretty. I like to use this right after a shower, and it helps to define my curls.

My favorite Shea leave in.
Taitye from undisclosed
I've been looking for a leave in treatment for a long time that won't let my hair get frizzy or dry. Omg this is the best product for dry dwell hair. I am a type 2 with wavy hair because of a bad straight perm, but this leave in product reactivated my curls. I am so happy!! Please do not ever discontinue this product. I really need the sugar cane products along with the charcoal products.
Thanks so much.
Not an effective product for me.
Honest reviewer from MI
Product is packaged to be sprayed in hands then applied to hair. The smell is nice, but not enough slip to detangle my coily hair. My hair doesn't feel any softer or moisturized. I hoped to enjoy this product, especially since it contained marshmallow root, but it is being returned. This may be effective for a looser curl pattern.

Amazing products & improved my hair a lot . Beautiful fragrance

I'm pretty sure it will work for other hair types. I'm a 2B or 2C. My hair is extremely frizzy and it didn't tame the frizz as I had hoped. I used to love the Yucca and Plantain styler as it did much more taming for me. I do have to say it smells pretty but has a sticky consistency. I feel like it didn't spread through my hair well even after combing it through.
Effective does what it says !

The description of this product is short compared to what it really does ! Leaves hair sooo super soft detangles quickly and smells amazing! I use it as a leave in conditioner and as heat protectant never lets me down ! I have purchased it three times already and will keep repurchasing forever !

so I tried this for the first time after trying this brand's Jamaican castor oil repair mask and oh. my. God. my hair is bleached from root to tip, and is long. before going blond, I had nice natural beachy waves, but of course frying your hair for so long takes the life out of it, and makes it frizzy and unmanageable. this works so well!!! i used it on towel dried hair and combed it through with my fingers, and then went in with the pacifica beachy hair balm after. my hair looks so beautiful!! I'm obsessed
Effective and smells AMAZING!

I just bought this the other day, and decided to try it today. First thing I noticed was how amazing the product smelt, I can't even describe how good it smells. Second, I used this on towel-dried hair, put it in before blow drying, and I was beyond impressed at how soft and shiny my hair looked and felt. It didn't make my hair feel weighed down or greasy at all. Highly recommend!
Very effective at perfecting hair!

I bought this on a whim since I love a lot of Shea Moistures products. Mostly because their affordable and made with just able the best ingredients for skin and hair. I how low porosity, fine, wavy, medium density, shoulder length hair that is prone to frizz. I have tried all kinds of oils on my hair. Oil mixes and just single oils like castor and argan oil and all of them made my hair way too oily. I tried every different way to apply oil to my hair to try to make it work since a lot of people use it, especially on their ends. I'm wet hair, damp hair, dry hair, only on the ends, all over my hair, very thin amounts, always on freshly washed hair and always ended up looking greasy and flat. This product is truly a miracle for someone like me just trying to hydrate their ends, add some shine or gloss and tame frizz!!!! It is so light weight, smells absolutely amazing, like MARSHMALLOWS. I have gotten compliments on the scent and the performance so often that I recommend it to anyone and everyone loves it!!! It has a white lotion texture but does not leave any residue in my hair. I use it as directed, on dry hair, in my ends and after I have styled it as a finishing touch!

Its ok. doesnt do much for my curls. I feel like i have to use a lot. Feels watery. The spray is annoying. I unscrew the cap and just poor it in my hand. I love this brand but i wouldnt repurchase this. They have better leave ins than this.
Best hair product I've ever used

This stuff when applied to towel-dried damp hair, leaves my hair so soft and silky (no frizz), and works wonders to tame my hair.
Marysl from Fairfax, VA
I had tried every smoothing/straightening product on the market and none worked. I ended up having professional keratin treatment, but this year, with COVID-19, I couldn't do that. I turned to this product and it's a miracle. I blow dry my hair with this product in it and it stays smooth and shiny even in extremely humid weather. Plus, it's free of harmful chemicals. A win-win.

Love this hair product! Leaves my curls so shine and soft.
A must for hair.

I use it every day. Make your hair soft and curly.
Day 1 of Using This
travelsize from undisclosed
I've been trying to update and refine my skin and hair routine first day using this and oh my gosh, my hair feels smooth and soft, I've been feeling my hair even after washing was feeling hard, rough, and not as fresh as it should be coming out of the shower, put it on this morning after and shower and let it air dry with some sea salt spray for my waves, I still have some slight frizz and fly away that I tame with a light hairspray but my hair feels good and so soft, I've been rubbing my hands through it all day!
Exactly What I've Been Looking For!
MayElizabeth from undisclosed
I have type 2 hair, consists of loose waves but can get pretty frizzy nonetheless. I've been searching and searching for something to help with reviving day 2 waves and THIS is the stuff. When I wake up I use my hands to comb some water through my roots and then use this miracle styler and my hair is instantly tamed and moisturized! Smells amazing and feels so good. Works great after a shower too. I'm hooked and will be buying this again and again!
Holy Grail Product
Nichole8 from undisclosed
I never write reviews, but I'm obsessed with this stuff. I have fine, curly hair, and this leaves me with soft, perfectly defined spirals, and decent volume, with zero frizz and zero crunch. Hair looks great on the second day too! If you use too much, the scent can be a little strong, but if you use the right amount, it dissipates pretty quickly. Please never stop making this stuff!
Chichi from Indiana
I have wavy-curly hair that is thin and low-porosity. I struggle the most with getting volume into my hair, and I feel like this really helps. I mostly use it as a refresher by scrunching it into dry hair, and it makes my hair fluff up without losing definition. Also, when applied the same way to hair that is half-dry, it magically dries the hair almost instantly (???) and makes it nice and fluffy on first-day hair! It also smells really good. All around a lovely lightweight product.
Nothing too special
EvieStar from undisclosed
While my hair are not curly (maybe a tiniest wave sometimes), they are very long and I take care of them with leave in products to decrease the tangling and make them easier to brush. They are not dehydrated, though. So, a plus because pretty good smell. Minus - while it does not make worse, I didn't notice improvement as well. Another minus is packing - what is the purpose to have a spray nozzle if you have to spray in the palm? Either make it a normal spray, or put some other cap. When you spend more time trying to get product out of the bottle than applying it, it puts a strong hit into "no" category.
Didn't reach my expectations..
Laken from undisclosed
This product smells okay, but it leaves my hair feeling like there's a gummy residue in my hair instead of it feeling soft. My hair is still frizzy, ends are still dry, and I'm still getting split ends. My hair is fine so may be better for coarser hair.
great product but bad packaging
serena from undisclosed
this product really helps me keep frizz fown and defin my waves really well however! the spray on the bottle is terrible. it ricochets out of my hand because it is such a powerful jet. i recommend buyong this product but i wish they had put a pump lid on it instead
Not my favorite
KD from Ellicott City, MD
I tried this out as I was on the hunt for a new leave-in conditioner to spray onto my wet hair before applying my other products.
This does not spray, it shoots out in a straight stream. Which is fine for applying with your hands, but I prefer a product I can mist all over to ensure nice even, light coverage before applying my other products with my hands.
The smell is also so strong and perfumey that the 3 other products I use still did not cover it up.
On the plus side, it did make my hair feel soft, and my bf commented on my hair smelling good when I used it.
I'll keep it in my hair product arsenal, but it just wasn't quite what I was looking for.
Really liked it
Chris from Long Island NY
Read online this was a silicone free heat protectant. I used it after my nighttime shower, leg my hair dry naturally. In the morning I flat ironed and it made my hair smooth and silly without looking oily. Hair stayed for days.
Just bought it
Natalie from undisclosed
I just went and got this an hour ago and put it in my hair straight away, five minutes later my hair is no longer screaming for moisture. I had to go out to get something because I ran out of my usual cream and wanna switch up my styling products. I'm also noticing my most defined curls slowing curling up more which I need right now. Four stars because I've only used it once so far
I'm a basic hair person

I have had natural hair since the age of 15. I am now 29 & although I've been donating for years, I wanted to do something different & dye my hair. So I used arctic fox purple rain. I had to bleach my hair once to get it light enough to take the color but after I was done, my hair felt so dry. In the shower where my hair would feel smooth after shampoo, now felt like straw & would be extremely tangly. So my sister gave me this. I am obsessed. I have been using it every day after I get out of the shower & I am in love. The smell is oh so amazing! It smooths out my hair & makes it feel like it did before the dye job. I just really love it. I am almost out of it & I will definitely repurchase. But I'm also looking into other treatments from SM to use after I remove this purple (because I hate it ). So I'm looking at deep treatments as well as daily care (shampoo/conditioner). I'm also interested in the kids marshmallow detangler. My sister didn't care for this because she said it was too heavy. But I have very thin hair & I don't find that to be the case for me & I wash my hair every day because it's so oily. But this product doesn't add to my natural oils at all. It just helps my hair feel oh so healthy again
