This Masque is not my favorite but it is awesome when I add olive oil and sit under my hair steamer. Yes it gets the job done and this would be the only way I can use it as a deep conditioner. For a leave in, I have to work it in while my hair is soaking wet and it works great. I rotate this product with a few others. I like that it comes in a plastic jar, I can spoon out what I need. I will repurchase this over and over.

I tried this product because I use the shea moisture volumizing conditioner and LOVE it. Let me start off by saying I am fair skinned with blue eyes and a ton of fine highlighted long blonde hair. So this product is NOT exclusive to ethnic hair.
The key to this masque is to apply to DRY HAIR. As oil is not water soluble and your hair will not absorb this product to the fullest if wet. My trick is to apply on to dry hair then hit it up with the blow dryer so it penetrates, throw my hair in a bun for as long as my little heart desires and then wash and condition as normal. This washes out like silk. Amazing product that is natural - smells AMAZING LIGHT CLEAN FRESH. And nasty silicone free. As for the price. This product is as much as it would be to buy raw shea butter, but this product has the added benefits of additional oils. I find this mask very reasonable as a little really goes a long way.
I also use this as a styling product. If I wear a pony or a bun i rub this through my hair first - it smooths down flyaways and does not leave a greasy texture or oily appearance. It really helps hair stay in place as well. So really it's a conditioning treatment and styling product in one. I cannot say enough great things about this brand. I've loved every product I've tried thus far. THIS PRODUCT IS NOT JUST FOR ETHNIC HAIR - WHITE GIRLS CAN USE IT TOO! Just note that because I almost did not purchase this because I thought it wasn't for my hair type. Also all of the online reviews I read were from people with ethnic hair that have gone "natural". This brand truly has something for everyone. With great ingredients, prices, and quality you cannot go wrong.

I like the smell, consistency, price, packaging, and ingredients are the best!
I really don't know what to expect from hair mask if my hair is normal, maybe a bit on dry side. i haven't tried many masks , only Kerastase (which i didn't like).
Maybe you should not use it if your hair is oily, because is feels a bit buttery after rinsing it out. It's fine for my dry-ish hair.

I had high hopes for this product on my dry hair. Unfortunately, I was let down. My hair was coarse, stiff and hard to detangle after using this; it took a good soaking with Infusium 23 for me to be able to run a wide-tooth comb through it and start detangling. There was also no significant improvement in the texture and moisture of my hair either wet or dry (this lack of improvement was noted before I started using Infusium 23 to detangle). The product smells great and rinses out easily, but that's all it's got going for it. Glad it's working for others; it's just not working for me. I won't repurchase it.
Update...been using it on and off for two weeks now (too expensive and not horrible enough to just toss). I think that over that time it may have actually improved the condition of my hair. Combing my hair out afterwards is still quite the chore...but my very dry and coarse hair is much more moisturized. So I've up the score to the lippies...it's not quite worth four though, but I may consider repurchasing.

I have naturally curly (3a), thick, color treated hair that is prone to horrible tangles/snares. I switched from a low-lather shampoo/conditioner routine to my current HG Salon Grafix Cleansing Conditioner (same concept as wen, but buy at CVS) a few months ago, but I still felt like I needed to repair some of the damage I've caused over the years. I've been a naturallycurly.com devotee for years, so I'm familiar with how amazing Shea butter is on my thirsty hair...
I was worried that this product would be too heavy (it's literally the consistency of butter, no joke), but I find that Shea -while VERY moisturizing - rinses easily and doesn't gunk up on my hair.
I try to use this once a week, and it's really improved my hair's texture! By that I DON'T mean it weighs it down straight - the combo of my daily co-wash + weekly Shea moisture masque totally improves the health of my hair and gives me amazing curls! It sounds strange, but I actually have more volume and bounce - which I attribute to the hair shaft damage being repaired. Long story short, even if your hair is not VERY tightly curled (4a-4c), this product is awesome! It really feels like it repairs damage, as opposed to just coating with silicones which is what stuff like Pantene does... Try it out!

i am not a fan of this product alone, but i'm dedicated to finding only natural hair care products that works for me so i was DETERMINED to tweak my routine to optimize the effectiveness of this product. i recently melted a tablespoon and a half of coconut oil and blended it into this masque with a spoon and it has made all the difference in the world!

This was like putting waxy lard into my hair. It did nothing for my hair except make it all stuck to my head and stiff. I had to shampoo multiple times to get this out. Is this product geared towards ethnic hair? I'll stick to my Fekkai for Shea Butter Treatments.

I'm actually, surprisingly a boy. I know this sight is directed towards women but oh well! I have always just cut my hair off once it gets too long. I wanted to try and grow my hair out and make it nice and pretty-ish.
I like the packaging and the smell is not unbearable but it's not as pleasant as other products. I feel like $10 is a lot, especially when these products should be used with others i spent $30 on only three products.
Anyways. Back to the deep treatment masque, I like the way it made my hair soft and manageable. I just put it in while I was in the shower, left it on for about 5 minutes and washed it out. It's a deep conditioner option. I haven't tried anything to compare it to but until I do, it will work.

I'm a fan! It keeps my dry, fine, curly hair nicely moisturized. I shampoo once with One 'n Only Argan, rinse, and squeeze out the water, then apply this product, avoiding the scalp. I leave it in and style with some gel. My hair is soft and shiny with well-defined curls and no split ends. I've been told my hair smells nice, though I don't notice it myself.

Super moisturizing. It leaves my hair baby soft.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Normal, Medium, Neutral Hair: Blond, Wavy, Fine Eyes: Green
I love this stuff. Let me start by saying that I am not the coloring that it seems to be intended for. I have medium tone skin and blonde hair. In the last week, I have applied this heavily to dry hair, put it up and slept on it. I then shampooed it out the next morning and lightly conditioned it afterwards. It has made my hair extremely soft and shinny. I've never had a conditioner work this well.
My hair is generally normal to dry because I get highlights every couple months. The only thing I don't like is the smell. I can see how some people would like it but I hate it! I put my hair up as fast as I can so I don't have to smell it much. The good thing about it is that after it is washed out, my hair smells really good. It's odd.
I bought this at Target for $8.99 for a 12 oz. tub. I'd recommend it to anyone that needs some extra moisture in their hair.

This is the Holy Grail for my hair. My hair has been through hell!!!!! I have dyed it, fryed it from flat ironing and curling and blow drying. I have tried It's a 10 hair mask to Organics Macadamia nut mask. This stuff saved my hair. I am trying to grow out my hair happy and healthy. It makes my ends so soft. It is 10 dollars at Walgreens but I got it sale for 8 dollars. Best Hair product ever made for hair!!!!!!!

Amazing...... as long as you know how to use it.
First, clarify your hair really well (a normal shampoo won't do, get neutrogena's clarifying shampoo). Then, while still in the shower with soaking wet hair, apply a lot of this product. Spend a few minutes combing it through really well. Leave it in. When you get out of the shower, dab a bit of the excess water with a towel and immediately wrap the hair into a bun on top of your head. Leave it in for at least overnight but preferably as long as you can. I left it in for about 20 hours. Then, shampoo with a normal shampoo, and condition with a really good quality conditioner (I used Fekkai's Glossing). Then you know the drill... put in your blow dry cream, etc. My hair was literally transformed from doing this. I have extremely thick, curly, unruly hair that is unpresentable without straightening and/or chemical treatments. This made it a completely different texture!! My hair feels like silk, and has a super healthy sheen I've never seen before. It literally was like I got some kind of really, really expensive treatment done, except no other treatments ever gave me this result. Seriously... try it o_o
(This is only for very coarse, thick hair - if you already have thin hair it may make your hair TOO moisturized and weak!)

This stuff did my hair right! I'm transitioning for the second time so I know you have to keep your hair very moisturized. I tried this produced on a whim after seeing the product line whenever I was at target, Walmart, or Walgreens. The difference I did was I put this on my dry hair, wrap my head in plastic wrap and let it sit for a hour before I shampoo. After and hour I shampoo my scalp well and rinse. My hair was so soft and was easy to detangle. I will continue to use this method because the results were amazing! Will keep purchasing!

My hair ADORES this product. My hair is soft, bouncy, manageable, very moisturized, and smells fantastic after I use it. I'm so happy that the time I spent staring at it in Walgreens wondering if it was worth it was not in vain.

Love, love, love! Made my dryish, color-treated thick Asian hair feel like silk. I also adore the smell, and it was convenient to apply.
I stumbled on this little gem when I was looking for an argan oil treatment. Most products had argan oil as the third ingredient after two types of silicones. This listed argan oil as the third ingredient after water and shea butter. It was filled with all kinds of goodness like plant extracts and avocado oil, with few fillets. And all for $10! Cheaper than many of the other products that are advertised as argan oil treatments.
The product is a thick creme texture, so I was able to apply it to the roots and entire length of my hair and sit with it uncovered for half an hour while I puttered around. No drips!
I washed it out easily in the shower and the next day my hair was still silky smooth.
Based on other reviews, it looks like this works for some and not for others, but at $10 a pop it is worth a try. Also know that my hair wasn't massively damaged when I used this, just a little dry.
EDIT: this is only magical when I use it with my All Soft conditioner. Once when I didn't follow up with conditioner, it didn't have the same sickening effect. I'm taking this down to 4 stars.

After reading online reviews of this masque, I was kind of scared to use it on my hair. Many reviewers on different boards and blogs said this product made their hair feel like dry straw. I figured if I didn't like how it made my hair feel, I'd just wash it out and use a different conditioner.
I did not use a lot of the product, just enough to lightly coat my hair and I slapped a plastic cap on and sat under the dryer for 20 minutes. It rinsed out easily and my curls were actually defined and not frizzy for once. Whether that's due to this product or me using t-shirt fabric to dry my hair, I don't know. My hair took no time AT ALL to detangle...I have VERY kinky/coily hair and it usually takes a while to detangle. My hair feels very soft. I'm glad I gave this product a chance, especially since I almost didn't use it due to others' experiences.
EDIT: I was reading about high porosity/low porosity hair, and how low porosity hair needs heat to raise up the cuticles and allow the product in. I wonder if using heat might have made the product work better on people with low porosity hair? I did not use a whole lot of the product and I did sit under the dryer for 20 minutes; when I took the plastic cap off there was no "white stuff" sitting on my hair. Try it with a little bit of heat and see what you think.

I really like this deep conditioner for my 3b curls. At first I didnt like it either but I find this works best when I add water in my hair, put this in and add a little more water if I need to along with heat. I leave this in for 10-15 min while in hot steamy shower or just use a blow dryer to seal in heat. I feel that putting on a shower cap and incorporating heat is what made the difference for me. Ever since I did that I instantly feel the difference when I rinse it out. I use this once a week and it works well. Not bad for $10. I think this will last me a while. As a leave in its decent but that was before I purchased the shea moisture smoothie. So good luck and if you got it from walgreens you can always return it

This did not do a thing for my dry, frizzy locks. I get better results from Aussie 3 Minute Deeeeep Conditioner which is a fraction of the price. I expected a rich, cream-like consistency from this product. It was thinner than I expected and did nothing to quench my parched do. Just glad I didn't pay full price for this one. Will stick with my other, cheaper drugstore favorites.

So the story started that well basicly my hair was dead at the ends and i went out a looked for a masque or treatment. And i found my new love. I felt the diffrent right when i rinsed it out. I normally apply it on dry hair and let it sit for 35 mins. I know many people use it when their hair is wet. I feel its worked the best for me. I have dark long "locks" haha but this thing lasts FOREVER. I swear i think it reproduces lol jkjk. I used it about 3 or 4 times and im not even half way!!!
