Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars
I have 3c to 4a hair. I completly cut my hair to a pixie cut (shoulder length before) due to hair loss from a major surgery I have done. I have been using Shea Moisture since my first chop (7 years) but recently it made my hair drier than usual and more tangled. I was looking through Ulta for a different product and notice this brand. As every curl doctor (yourself), you always look up the brand before buying to make sure it's good for us curls. I saw they have a detox scalp cleanser and I was like "YES I NEED IT" since I have very dry, itchy scalp. Let me tell you, THIS IS Amazing. I've started using this product since my chop (July 2020) and my hair is past my ear (when straighten, I have very shrinkage curls) and it's only February 2021.
I have a wash routine that is different from normal wash routine (or maybe not). I do not use shampoo or conditioner weekly since I have dry itchy scalp. I clarify once a month and cowash my hair every week. I also do a hair mask leave in every second week of the month. Let me tell you, this routine makes my hair thick and I don't see dandruff as much as before. Overly shampooing can cause dry scalp (depending on condition of hair) since you are ripping away the nutrients from the scalp and hair loss.
For the people who says their hair fall out: REMEMBER this is a CLARIFYING treatment not your usual shampoo and conditioner. You only use this product once a month NOT every week. Overly Clarifying your hair can cause hair loss and increase in shedding.
I turned to this after experiencing problems with another popular curly hair brand. I've been using this for about a month now (washing once a week). The smell of the first two steps is really nice. The third step is minty and leaves almost a 'cooling' sensation which is uncomfortable if left on too long. You are supposed to detangle with the first step but the product doesn't offer much slip meaning you really have to be gentle and it takes longer to detangle. The second step has the right idea but I don't think it cleans as well as it says it does. I often still find residue on my scalp after using and end up having to use a different clarifying treatment before. The third step is a thick conditioner that focuses more on soothing than on conditioning as it does not apply super smooth and my hair doesn't feel super soft afterward. I also noticed a LOT of hair loss in the shower. More so than usual. I can also feel how thin my hair is getting which is concerning. My scalp is also becoming more sensitive. I think I will be returning this product if I am able to.

Not a big fan of the pre wash but shampoo and conditioner work well in my wavy hair

This kit is amazing. It is great for cleaning your scalp while preserving your curls. Although I have curly hair, this is fantastic for all hair types. It has made my scalp much healthier. I highly recommend it.

I have an insanely dry scalp and this product is so helpful. I love the whole line and the conditioner feels so good on my scalp when Im done shampooing. 10/10 would recommend if you have a dry and flaky scalp

The detox kit worked instantly after washing and conditioning. I had lost my waves due to having covid in September of last year. Using the detox kit restored them so much so my husband noticed it after using it once. I use to have curlier hair but years of straightening and abuse I'm left with wavy but who knows what will happen if I continue to use these products, which I will after instant results with one wash.

I don't use it as often as I should, but I've been really happy with the results of the detox kit. My hair and scalp always feels very clean afterward.

I was looking for something to deep clean my scalp, because it gets itchy and flaky and has buildup on it, and I don't like to wash my hair more than twice a week because it is fine and fragile. This system is great because it protects the hair shaft but scrubs the scalp! Exactly what I needed! Scalp has felt way healthier since then!

I love the detox line. I know it's working when I feel my scalp tingle. My hair feels so much better. I've had compliments on how good my hair looks.

This is a fantastic clarifying line. I use this once a week on my fine, thick 3a/3b curls, and it leaves my scalp clean and my hair shiny without drying my curls out. The scrub feels awesome on my scalp as does the tingling conditioner.

I had never tried the primer before but now I don't think I could go back to not using it. It helps to detangle my hair, it makes the whole process so easy through shampoo to conditioning. My hair loves it and has become more easy to manage now. My hair feels clean and smells great, want more can you want.

I only had chance to use this once, as I plan to use the kit every month or so. Hair and scalp felt super clean and fresh afterwards. I had some problems with the amounts to use... I used way too much of the slip and still had trouble detangling so I probably needed to detangle a little beforehand. The shampoo was satisfying... and I loved the tingling sensation of the conditioner. I went in a little heavy on the conditioner and will say that the scent is pretty strong - for those who are like me and have smell sensitivities you might want to go easy on this or skip it altogether

Just what my curls needed, a reset! The shine and bounce are back.
