I just use this on my thick wavy frizzy hair and I love the curls it gave me. My hair is curly/frizzy in the summer and indecisive waves in the winter that go frizzy and flat so I always end up straightening it in the colder months. This gave my curl definition and made my hair look healthy and fun! I did use a little gel for better hold. If you are on the fence, go buy it and try it a couple of times with the right amount for your hair. I do imagine that it could weigh thin hair down a bit, but if you have frizzy thicker hair or waves or curly hair then you will love it! I will update in the humid summer months.
so upset because this product used to be SO BUTTERY!!!! BUT now, its watery and leaves my 4b/4c tresses DRY. see attached to understand why.

this is my go-to hair product. I've gotten compliments from the coconut & hibiscus smell and I've been using this for YEARS. recommended especially for curly hair to help maintain frizz

This dose not have the things I'm allergic to like sulfates, and no paragons. My silver hair always look like I just came from the beauty shop.

Holy Grail! We live in the hot, humid South. It took decades of experimentation, but I finally found the leave-in products that actually work. On its own, this smoothie isn't effective enough to keep frizz at bay, but, in combination with a light gel*, this leave-in conditioner keeps my high porosity, 2c-3b, medium length, Caucasian curls soft, bouncy and frizz-free, even in the summer. *Garnier Pure Clean Styling Gel or Not Your Mother's Curl Gel
So i love many SheaMoisture products for my 2c-3b, high porosity medium length hair, but sadly not this one. For the first time in my life, I started getting terrible KNOTS in my hair. It was horrible. Some were so bad i had to cut them out. I do use a silk pillowcase and tie my curls up in a pineapple at night, but it made no difference. Once i stopped using the shampoo, the knots went away. I still use Coconut & Hibiscus conditioner and smoothie with no problems. Go figure?

I love their conditioner so I tried the shampoo. After a few washes I noticed my hair felt heavy and greasy at the roots even when the hair is drying. When it dries, it still has the grease feeling. I wouldn't recommend if your hair is already greasy.

this has worked amazingly for my hair. there are some certain curls that feel kinda stiff but still soft. i DO recommend!!!

Used it once and left me with greasy hair. So disappointed as this is likely the worst shampoo I have ever bought.

Makes my hair too greasy quickly. I wash my hair every other day which works for me but starting this one of this brand makes my oily pretty quickly compared to the other brands I've used.

i shaved my head recently due to extensive damage from dyeing my hair over the years. i also realized before shaving my head that i had a curl pattern i wanted to grow back and develop.
this shampoo can be amazing if you take the proper steps to get there. i would recommend going with a clarifying shampoo before using this one. a clarifying shampoo will remove the buildup from product and natural oils that form over time. also make sure to really emulsify the shampoo between your hands to suds it up. this will ensure product is warmed up and ready for your hair. it will also give an even distribution of product. after the clarifying shampoo, then use the shea moisture one. this one is super moisturizing and will really do wonders if you do the step before.
my scalp feels absolutely wonderful and hydrated, and along with the usage of the conditioner, i can see my hair starting to develop its curl pattern better.
an extra step you can take is using a protective oil before you begin the shampoo process. i have been using a rosemary-based oil and all of this has done wonders for my scalp and hair health. my hair is growing back so beautifully!!

My daughter has curly hair and have tried a lot of products. Her hair looks amazing for a few days, this is my new product for my daughter.

I used this with the conditioner and went to bed with damp hair, when I woke up my hair felt nasty and waxy but looked pretty, washed my hair again the next day with just shampoo and the waxy feeling only got worse.
Mari from Boston, Massachusetts
I have thick curl waves and this shampoo never seems to clean my scalp well enough. It always leaves left over build up and strips away the natural oils of your hair. It's not well at moisturizing and my hair always still seems dirty, no matter how many times I wash it. It creates a greasy coat on top of your head. I expected more from this since it seems to be every curly girls fav, but I won't be using this again.
I've been using this product for 3 years and I seem to have a love hate relationship. At first it's good then it makes my curls look greasy. It weighed down my curls, it's sticky, and leaves a terrible cast. It created so much build up in my hair too. I think it's time for me to put this product to rest.

Such a good product and brand.
Taz from Manchester, NH
This is one product I'll always keep stocked in my shower. This curl and shine mask does exactly that! I have thick, non greasy hair and this does a beautiful job of replenishing hydration and adding beautiful shine that even my Salon coworkers notice!

I love this product so much

bought this for my mom, who has always thought she has curly hair but it has had heat damage and color damage. we just used a little and it went a very long way, really brought out and defined a full head of curls. tried it on my own wavy hair, and it was too heavy, so be aware of that
ADRIANA from Bay Area
Had high hopes for this product although my hair is soft, and it does have volume it does nothing for my friends or defining my girls….
Christina from New Jersey
This shampoo did not lather well. I needed a lot of it to create a lather. Afterwards, my hair felt like straw. Even the conditioner couldn't fix this. The only pro is that it smells nice, like coconuts.
Xx from Amarillo, Tx
I am upset this shampoo did not work for me. It dried out my scalp.

perfectly hydrating. my go-to. i have fine curls (2c) and medium to thick hair with medium porosity.
Sarah from Nashville, TN
Didn't work for me at all. Gave it a couple tries and both times, immediately could tell my curls were not going to hold any definition and overall frizzy.
Roxy from Texas
I'm Latina and my girls are Blaxican. This product works well for my wavy and their curly hair. A small amount goes a long way and gives shape without the crunch.
Nellie from Fontana,Ca
Since I've been using this product it has completely helped my hair gain back a lot of luster it lacked I'll be a life long user
Keoni from sacramento
Makes my hair feel nice but I don't know how often to put it onto my hair without hurting my hair .
