I bought this in hopes of giving my thin, dry blonde hair some deep conditioning. I have to say, I am blown away by the results after just one use! My hair is very dry and fine and always tangles especially at the ends. I've tried a ton of deep conditioners and not one has ever allowed me to run my fingers through my hair. Until now! My hair stayed soft, frizz-free and detangled for the full 2 days until I had to wash it again after a workout. Even without brushing the following day, I could still run my fingers through my hair. AMAZING!! Highly recommend to anyone with dry, damaged hair.
As they saying goes, "If it ain't broke, don't try to fix it." It's an absolute shame the formula for JBCO leave-in was changed to accomate others. The name is no longer "Strengthen, Grow & Restore," keratin is no longer an ingredient, and it no longer claims to "Nourish, Repair & Grow." My current jar containing the old formula was running low; so on my last trip to the beauty store I decide to reup. Unfortunately for me, I uknowingly bought a jar containing the new formula. I got home, compared the two and was disappointed. I was going to give the new batch a try, until I opened it and it smelled like hair grease and unnatural fragrance. This product was perfect for my 4C hair and you had to go and ruin it. I will be moving on from Shea Moisture they same way they've moved on from their core audience.
Real Review from Wausau, WI
I comb my hair in the shower when I put conditioner in and it hardly felt like I had any in my hair with 2 pumps. 1 pump made it so my hair wasnt too greasy but over all felt like there was build up in my hair. 2 pumps made my hair so greasy after drying from showering that my hair felt wet.

I used this for about 5-6 years, but I officially switched to something else two years ago. This was the second kind of leave-in conditioner that I used as I made my way through my hair journey. My hair changed from straight and thin to wavy/curly and coarse/dry when I was a teenager and really struggled to figure out a good routine. I found this product and it changed the game for me big time. I used it every time I'd get out of the shower and it made my hair so much more manageable. Not only that, I noticed an improvement with the frizz and dryness. It was light a light weight cream so it was just the right texture for me. Because of this improvement, my hair quality improved as well and I noticed how much easier it was for other products to penetrate my hair and do it's intended purpose such as a deep conditioner. The only reason I switched from this product to the one I use now is because I couldn't find this in several stores during the pandemic and had to find something else. But, I feel like it's important for me to share how much this product did my hair justice all those years!

Makes it easy to run fingers through hair, turns frizzy undefined hair into pretty coils instantly.

emily from Macomb, MI
I like the scent when using the product but it does feel like it isn't absorbing into the hair. I do feel softness but also the hair is heavy, that could be with the combination of their shampoo. Its a good conditioner price wise and for not greasy hair
addie from Jermyn Pa
It's very thin on my hair but i absolutely love it i feel like my hair is so much softer and shiny.

My hair feels so much softer and healthier
Gabby from Sacramento
I've been using this since 2017 and it has helped my hair in many different ways. Its definitely grown super long and healthy! I always put some on after the shower mostly on my ends. A little amount goes a long way and it will last you. I always tell people to use this if they want their hair to grow. The only negative thing about it is the smell that I sometimes do get tired of.
DeAnna from Weatherford, TX
This is the only shampoo and conditioner I've used that visibly strengthens my hair. I hardly have any hair breakage and falling out during showers and brushing, etc. I notice if I switch shampoo and conditioners my breakage comes back. My hair looks thicker too and I have thinner hair. I love it!!
James from Charlotte, NC
This product provides so many benefits. My hair has some SERIOUS strength after long term use of this conditioner. When I'm not color-treating my hair, this is my go to. Aroma is phenom, lingers just a little bit. Doesn't weigh my hair down.
Skin&haircarejunky from Virginia
I'm not going to lie it is pretty heavy and can weigh down hair if you use a lot, not kidding when I say a little goes a long way! I only use this mid to ends to detangle and it works great! It's super moisturizing and I've also notice it makes my split ends disappear a little bit so that's a plus! Love this, there's other great ones but if your on a budget and want something that won't damage hair, I def recommend this one! It's my go-to
Megan from Wisconsin
So I have wavy hair that's recently been bleached and this stuff is amazing!
It makes my hair feel so healthy and soft. I use only about a dime size amount (maybe a bit more if needed) on damp hair and it makes detangling a dream and my hair feels so conditioned and healthy. This is the ONLY Shea moisture product (and the matching masque) that I like. The smell isn't too great, but it fades away and with the benefits I can't complain too much about it.
Liv from Atlanta
This stuff is fantastic! It's not too greasy or heavy because it's all natural! This stuff makes my hair feel so much smoother and soft after use

This has quickly became my new favorite leave in conditioner. I bought this on a whim I needed something inexpensive but good! I was skeptical at first because I tried the curl enhancing smoothie by SheaMoisture and it left my hair sticky and flat. This though is amazing my curls are SUPER defined and bouncy. I also use it to refresh my curls throughout the week. Only con is the smell maybe it's me lol. It doesn't smell like play doh it smells more natural I just wish it smelt better it doesn't linger though. Use very little a little goes a long way with this product.
Patricia Lynn from Scottsdale, AZ
It's applied to wet clean hair, and the natural curl is defined after it's applied.
Emi from Saint Petersburg Florida
For the price, this is hands down one of the best leave in conditioners I've tried. It is super moisturizing, perfect for thick hair, it detangles super well and moisturizes. The only con is the smell. It's a pleasant smell but it is not light and the smell of vanilla can linger on for hours which can get annoying throughout the day. If you like the smell or vanilla though then it is perfect for you. I will still continue to purchase and use this though because of how well it moisturizes hair!
Kierra from Virginia
This product smells so bad. It smells like play dough. The smell gave a bad headache. I had to immediately wash my hair after applying the leave in. Would NOT reccomend this product to anyone.
MeowQueen95 from Amarillo, TX
I buzzed my head back in February, and I'm working on growing my hair out natural and healthy. This stuff is AMAZING! It makes my hair so soft and smooth! Plus, castor oil is the holy grail for hair growth! I can't believe I just discovered castor oil! Ive read and heard wonderful things about this brand, and I had to give it a shot! I'm so glad I did! This will most likely be a staple in my hair care routine, from here on out! Also, it will most likely last me an entire year because I only use a quarter size amount! Awesome bang for your buck, and such an amazing product!

I used to be long time lover of the mixed chicks leave in conditioner. I wanted to try SheaMoisture again after a horrible experience with the enhancing smoothie. I was dead set on not going back to the curl enhancing smoothie. I found this In Ulta my hair LOVES the Jamaican black castor oil masque they make. And this went beyond my expectations! My curls were bouncy and full of life! They were popping like POPPIN LIKE CRAZY SIS! They had bounce and my hair did NOT frizz in this southern humidity when it rains! Leaves my hair soft and moisturized. I style on wet hair like super wet hair and define with a denman brush or the tangle teezer brush for curly hair and my hair is set. It's a product I can count on. And my hair always frizzed with the mixed chicks or looked stringy.
Ednash from Maryland
Several years ago, this used to be the only leave in I used. Then one day, after using my last backup, I another Jar, and used it. My 4c hair dried out like crazy. I was confused bc this was the only conditioner I used. Then I grabbed my old jar and compared it to the new one. And realized the new formula had ACV in it. Idk any 4c hair person who uses Anything with ACV as a leave in. FF years later, decided to give it another try and it's still drying. All I can say is, why? I guess to cater to NoN, Afrocentric hair types. I guess.
Zoe from Pa
I see a lot of reviews about this making their hair greasy… I would say this may not be for people with thin or soft hair. My hair is wavy and course- not ethnic though. This makes my hair soft and the amazing scent stays with me for days. Happy to find a new conditioner that is free of harmful ingredients and it smells DIVINE! 10/10- huge fan.
Margo from Vermont
I don't understand, feels like the batch I got was bad or something because this doesn't condition my hair AT ALL - I use a whole hand full, like 10 pumps, and it does nothing, even somehow making my hair more tangled to the point that I'm afraid to run my fingers through it. Have to use a bunch of oil when I get out of the shower to make my hair feel healthy. I should have just thrown it away after the first time.
A from SI
i thought this would help with hair growth since there's black castor oil in it but it just makes my hair really greasy
Brooke from Colorado
I had i expectations for this product. My family friend uses it and loves it but it wasn't for me. It left my hair feeling smooth and shiny but it also left my hair looking greasy 5 hours after washing it. Especially considering I only put conditioner on my ends! Definitely helped my hair grow and strengthen but wasn't worth the way it made my hair feel! Might work for others though so keep that into consideration!
