I feel as though so many people have had a hard time with this masque because it is all natural thus being free of silicones, something that leaves a slippery, detangled feeling in common hair conditioners. I have a short a-line bob that I color jet black every 2-3 months. I wash my hair daily because I love that fresh hair feeling and my hair is too short to style around greasy hair. The daily conditioner I use is really lightweight and does the job but there are some days where my hair feels as though it needs more moisture than what it usually gets. I decided to add olive and coconut oil to this masque because the huge jar that I got for $12 said that it would work well this way. My hair is left really shiny and soft. Sure it doesn't have that slippery, super tacky detangled feeling but it's to be expected with something that lacks silicone. I have naturally fine-medium, straight hair and even though most people would shame me for using this when I don't have "ethnic" hair the jar does say it's for "damaged, dry hair" which I definitely have and it in no way says on the jar that it's for curly hair at all. So anyone with "dry, damaged hair" can use this. I switch this out every now and then with the Kenra Nourishing Deep Hair Masque because this Shea Moisture one does have Sea Kelp in it to help with strength and with the added coconut oil I've put in it I don't want to suffer from protein overload. Not sure why so many people hate this masque. Will repurchase.

This product is very lovely, it left my hair soft and supple which is why it got four lippies. The mediocre aspect of this product is the consistency. It is so watery it slips out of your hair one minute or less after application, therefore (if you have long hair) one jar = 3 or 4 applications. After washing and conditioning with this product my hair was a bit tangled. As it dried it became soft, supple and shiny. The scent is amazing and it lingers for hours. I have very long hair, perhaps this product would be more efficient for those with short or medium-length hair. $13.00 is too much for three or four applications.

I have thick, wavy Caucasian hair and this works pretty good for me. I use once a week in place of my normal conditioner and I do notice that my hair is softer and shinier. I only gave it four lippies because I am not a fan of the smell. I also have the super fruit 10 in 1 hair mask and it works amazing but the smell is way better than this. The consistency of this mask is very thick and be sure to wash it completely out of your hair because it will leave your hair greasy if you do not.

I've been growing out my hair for a year now so I like to use weekly deep treatment masques to keep my ends from looking dry. Some background about my hair type is that I have thick virgin Asian hair that is typically straight, but it loses moisture mostly at the ends. I was recommended to try this product at Sally Beauty Supply. It's a cruelty-free product and it's all natural. The scent is an earthy aroma, which doesn't bother me a lot. However those are the only positives I can list about the product. First of all, this has a runny consistency for a hair masque. I usually apply hair masque on my hair with a shower cap over it for half a hour before rinsing it out. But after using this for a month, I can say this hasn't improved my hair condition at all. It didn't worsen it either, but you would expect something that cost about 11-12 bucks to work better than a product of lesser value. I ended up taking the rest of the masque and mixing it with another conditioner and some coconut oil to strengthen it. I won't repurchase this product again.

I have thick, dry, frizzy 2b curls. I apply thickly to my dry hair, add a coating of olive oil, put on a shower cap, and blowdry for 30 min. Then I sit with the shower cap on for a few hours or sometimes overnight, then wash out, shampooing with shea moisture shampoo and conditioner. My hair is healthy and soft and my curls bounce.
The smell is awful, especially when combined with olive oil. I'll put up with it for better hair!

This ruined months and months of hair repair. I had been working so hard to resurrect my hair from bleaches and heat tools, and this undid all of my hard work :( It made my hair so unbelievably dry and brittle to the touch after just ONE use. BUYER BEWARE.

i used this hair mask about once a week for two months, and i've come to the conclusion that it does literally the opposite of what it's supposed to. it left my hair dry and frizzy which is odd as hell considering it's supposed to, i quote from the website, "deeply moisturize and repair dry, damaged or over-processed hair"? it smells ridiculously good though, but unfortunately, the good scent is not enough to keep me using such a garbage product.

I've had this for about nine months. I bought it to use as a treatment mask to help combat my dry hair and crunchy ends. After years of experimenting, and taking part in online hair forums, and learning as much as I possibly could about hair and what moisturizes it, I consider myself relatively in the know. With ingredients like this I thought it would certainly work better than it did.
And this stuff sucks. It did absolutely nothing for my hair. Not as a leave in, and not as a mask and not as a conditioner. I've used it as a prewash treatment, I've used it as a hair mask wrapped with and without heat, and I've even left it on my ends overnight. Absolutely offers no moisture to my thirsty hair. Also, a squeeze tube packaging would be much more practical with this type of product. People are bound to use this in the shower and it just gets water inside of it and degrades the product further.

I would not repurchase at all. And I will stay away from all Shea Moisture haircare products. I do like their lotions tho.

I've found some amazing hair masques for moisture, some very reasonably priced (Aussie, One 'n Only, L'Oreal, Neutrogena) and a few high-end (Moroccanoil, Matrix) and I thought I would like this one.

Its claims are sought after and ingredients are highly raved about, but it's my first experience with using raw shea butter in a product so I had high hopes that my super parched strands would love this!

My hair is has a large curl pattern that can be styled naturally curly or wavy. It's medium textured but highlighted/processed so the ends are course and rough. I use minimal heat, maybe once a month, but my hair is still prone to breakage.

I know that many people say that "protein overloads" are a myth, but if I use ANY product with protein, my ends will be stiff, and retaining moisture afterwards is a HUGE task. In my experience, protein sensitivity can simply NOT be written off as a "myth" - as my hair does absorb protein more easily than it absorbs moisture.

I picked up this masque as an effort to give my hair a super dose of moisturizing properties. It failed to deliver as much as I wanted to love it. I tried it as directed, as a deep conditioner in the shower, and also as an overnight treatment. It didn't do much if anything to add moisture to my hair.

I was disappointed in the texture (a bit runnier than I expected), as well as the scent. It does smell like clay. :(

I won't repurchase, and will stick to my HG deep conditioner for moisture, the Moroccanoil Intense Hydration Mask.

First time I used it, I only put it on for about 20minytes in the shower and combed it through. I didn't feel like it did much. A few weeks later, I wanted to give it a try again. This time, I combed it through on towel dried hair then used a thin towel to soak in hot hot water and rang it out, wrapped it around my hair and let it sit for about 30minutes. Rinsed with Luke warm water and after doing it this way my hair was so soft !! It actually made a huge difference. I do this once every two weeks and it's the best I've used so far. I am Mexican and Italian with wavy/curly hair that tends to get very dry easily.
