This product moisturized my hair so well. It made it look healthier after one use. The only thing I dislike is the tub. I hate having to dip my fingers in it.
I really am on the fence about this product. The Pros are it really does moisturize my hair and once my hair dries, it is so soft! The ingredients are so natural and earthy which is awesome! The major con would be it really didn't have any slip. I try not to comb my hair untill after I have had it wrapped up in a turbie towel for awhile anyway, but I still had a much more challenging time detangling my hair. I am contemplating using my regular conditioner after this just for the detangling. The other con for me was the smell, it's a little musky IMO. Overall, I do really get good moisture from this product and will continue to use this, especially after clarifying my hair. I think I will look at some of the other products from this brand as well.
One size does NOT fit all .So disappointed with this product. My hair ( dry, highlighted) was a knotty mess after using it. All the shea and argan in the world wont help if your hair is tangled after. Back to Reken All Soft, which has great slip and takes out the knots. I looked on naturallycurly.com and many others did not like this. Wish I had looked before wasting my money.
I LOVE shea butter hair products. Totally worship them and so does my hair. That said, I had higher hopes for this stuff. Although there are way more benefits to this product than negatives, the handful of cons are so annoying that I just don't know if I want to continue using this stuff.
Ingredients are amaze-balls - I don't think I have ever used another product with so many amazing and earthy/pure additives. I love that you can add your own oils to this stuff without ruining the product - how cool is that? The smell is great and it really does moisturize well. It's very affordable.
Absolutely no slip to this at all. It feels very drying upon application which I just don't understand. I have really thick, curly, long, coarse hair (Afro-Rican hair) which can only be brushed or combed while wet in the shower with conditioner in; when I brush this through its very hard to do and I feel like I am pulling it and doing damage to it. I get zero shine and actually I think this leaves my hair kind of dull, moreso than any other conditioner. My hair is sooooo tangled the next day! Its a major pain to deal with and untangle which again, may be even more damaging in the end.
I am on the fence. On one hand the ingredients and softness I do get when my hair dries after using this is so nice I want to keep using it; on the other hand the tangles it leaves me with are just too much to deal with. The only way I can use this is if I use at night, braid my hair, unbraid the next day and re-condition with something else. IE its a good treatment but not a "wash and go" type product for curly girls or those with hair past the shoulders.
I think i have found my HG deep conditioner. I know this line is marketed for ethnic hair, but i find it works incredibly well for my very thick (iii) wavy (2a/b) coarse damaged hair. I have never had this kind of softness with ANY conditioner i have tried before. I put this on dry hair, covered it with a shower cap and my microwavable head wrap. OMG... my hair was like silk when i rinsed it out. I can't even believe this is my hair. I have always struggled with my coarse hair texture and always coveted that sleek soft hair i see other girls with. This stuff is amazing!
I did not like this product at all. After applying it to my wet hair, leaving it on for about 10 mins., and washing it out, it left my hair feeling stiff and dry, and coated. My hair clumped together, and it was hard to detangle. Lots of hair started to fall out as I tried to detangle. I will obviously not be buying this product again.
I will be honest & say I expected something different when I first purchased this product but after continual use I started to really notice how great it is! My first thoughts were it smells okay, but not great. It's got a slightly nutty scent that's more natural. Not super flowery and sweet like a lot of other hair products. But the thick creamy consistency is amazing! I apply it to damp, towel dried hair and my first impressions were not great. I thought it made my hair feel raw and kinda hard too and after I washed it out there wasn't much difference in softness. So, I stopped using it for a while. But I've since come back to using it more consistently and I can definitely say the health of my hair has improved. I'm currently transitioning & for a bit I struggled with dryness and breakage. This helps me maintain a balance of strength and moisture and since using it I've had a lot easier time dealing with the two textures. Also, I read on the container that you can add olive oil for added moisture & since I've started doing that there's been nothing but positive results! I use it twice a week for deep conditioning so I go through the containers pretty quick ... I'm glad it's not like most deep conditioning treatments that are 30 bucks and up. So, I keep buying it and plan to keep it around for a while.
I started transitioning in april 2011...but I was clueless about hair care. I only stopped relaxing my hair because I wanted color.it has turned out to be the best decision I could have made.i started using shea moisture products june 2013...Awesome!!! My hair is no longer dry and brittle. After one use I was hooked. The price is great compared to other masque. I tried macademia nut which cost me $30 and its filled with silicones and doesnt work nearly as well.i have also tried mizani masque and it did nothing and cost me $18... shea moisture is reasonably priced and I stock up everytime it goes on sale at target and walgreens. I recommend this masque to everyone I know...whether you are transitioning. .damaged...relaxed....it works!
Let me start off by saying that I absolutely love this product. I have really dry damaged hair because I've bleached it so much that its really hard to find a product that will moisturize and stop the breakage...I happened to stumble across this product by accident, but truly love what it does for my hair...I can't speak for everybody, but it works for me...of you have bleached the crap out of your hair like I have, then it's definitely worth a shot...it smells really nice and I even added a tbsp of olive oil to amplify the effects...you can use it wet to dry, but I prefer to dry my hair a little then apply....
This product did not work for my hair! This product contain some ingredients my hair doesn't agree with like sea kelp! The price is good! I would suggest for others to try it!
