I've FINALLY found the perfect leave in product for my wavy/curly hair. After trial and error, a little goes a long way. I usually let my hair air dry and apply when damp and it adds so much softness and shine. Definitely helps battle the humidity in the south too!
I have coarse curly hair and my son has loose wavey hair and I just started using this because a lot of hair lotions contain alcohols but this one doesn't and smells so good...I love the consistency of it and makes my hair and scalp feel moisturized.
I really like this. I'm unable to use the Smoother in the winter due to the glycerin, so I now use this alone. It's really great for frizz and hold. Unfortunately, you don't get as much (but pay the same) with the Smoothie, so I don't think it's going to last quite so long.
It's also a little difficult to get the product out (squeeze bottle), but nothing major.
A must try!
This is my HG leave-in conditioner for my curly 3a, fine and somewhat porous hair. It makes my hair so healthy and smooth - love the natural ingredients and the smell. I always need to layer products on the style milk for truly tamed and defined curls, however, this is my base that I cannot do without!
I've just recently started using this as my daily moisturizer and I love it! I use it once a day at night before bed to help set my twists and it makes me twist out the next day look beautiful. I seal in the moisture with a tad of shea butter and my hair stays moisturized through out the day. It's not heavy at all, absorbs nicely into my strands and adds shine. Makes me hair look great and feel soft and smooth! The smell is coconut-y and sweet which I really like and a little bit goes a looong way so that little bottle lasts me a while. This is a product I will continue to buy
I bought this on recommendation of a friend who also has naturally curly hair. I have been using Carol's Daughter Hair Milk. I am not a fan of the CD's scent and it is more expensive. I had heard so many people rave about the Shea Moisture line and really wanted to like it because it is a natural product.
It is relatively inexpensive at $10 but it did nothing for my hair. It has a nice scent but it is heavy and instead of enhancing my curls, it weighed them down, unlike CD which really defines the curls. As a result, my hair was matted down and sticky. I definitely will not be purchasing this again.
I really wanted to love this hair, but unfortunately it was not for me. My hair is really thick and can be pretty curly, but can also just be regular wavy with random flat bits. Therefore, I need a curl enhancer to give it a boost otherwise it just looks like a poofy mushroom.
This product was a little too thick for my hair, and left a weird residue. I prefer light products so will be sticking to Redken Fresh Curls Curl Definer.
Pros: smells great, does moisturise, environment and animal-friendly (huge plus!)
Cons: too thick for hair, leaves a slight residue, doesn't enhance my curls
However, I do use the Shea Moisture Shampoo (Hibiscus and Coconuts) and LOVE IT! It's super moisturizing.
-Gives great moisture
-Gets rid of Frizz
- Used up bottle quickly (8oz)
- I usually need to use a product alongside it for styling. It works great with the shea moisture smoothie.
-Takes a long time to dry
Mixture of 3c/4a hair
I am so happy to have stumbled upon this product. I was initially looking for this brand's body wash in this scent due to a rave review on YouTube. Didn't find the body wash but saw this product. For the past 6 months I have not been straightening my hair and embracing my waves/curls. Since then, I have also been looking for a great product to enhance my natural state of hair. Many products I have tried either leave my hair (after using a diffuser) too frizzy, too crunchy, and/or not enough curl definition. This product's consistency is somewhat of a loose lotion. I read the reviews before trying it and I learned to be cautious of using too much because it can leave hair "stringy"-looking. So I use a pea size amount on the lower half and a pea size on the upper half of my hair. I softly dab it in in a scrunching motion then kind of rub it in and finish the scrunching process and proceed to blow dry with a diffuser. This product leaves my hair soft (which is wonderful since my hair is slightly damaged since I highlight it), it smells nice (coconut/tropical), and makes my curls look beautiful. After diffusing my hair I run my straightener through the ends and some pieces around my face and I have the perfect beachy wave look. I will definitely repurchase and the fact that it is around 10 bucks is such a bonus. Plus it is sulfate free, paraben free, along with a list of animal-friendly and bad-for-you ingredients. Win!
