By far my favorite Shea Moisture hair masque; I've tried the JBCO, Manuka Honey and Raw Shea masques as well as the Coconut & Hibiscus conditioner. I have hip length curly/wavy medium thick hair that tends to be dry. This masque leaves my hair moisturized, soft, smooth and shiny. It smells floral and it's ingredients include joboba oil, avocado oil, olive oil, yucca extract, coriander extra, baobab oil, shea butter, coconut oil, plantain extract and mango seed butter. I love that it has the jojoba oil in it, which is actually a wax not an oil and one of the closest things to human sebum. By far my favorite Shea Moisture masque and conditioner, definitely recommend. It does contain protein though so be wary if your hair is protein sensitive. I always let the masque sit 10-40 mins and follow up with the SM JBCO leave-in conditioner, a SM reconstructive elixir and then the SM Coconut & Hibiscus curl smoothie.

I have lots of long, fine, wavy/curly hair. I get regular trims, never heat style, and never color it, yet the ends are super prone to getting tangled and split. This mask did nothing.It did not make my hair one iota healthier or stronger, and, unlike a moisturizing or hydrating deep conditioner, also didn't make it any bouncier, shinier, or softer. The good news is that it at least didn't tangle, dry out, or make my hair worse. It's also a nice thick, whipped texture with a slight pleasant scent. However, I used an entire tub and do not recommend it and will not repurchase it.

This product happens to be one of my favorite products from the Shea Moisture line. I use it to keep my naturally curly hair strong and healthy. And, it truly works!

I have 3b naturally spiral curly hair that is also color treated.....I like the scent & consistency of this hair mask. When I used it (after I use the matching shampoo wich I love)I usually would leave the mask anywhere from 5mins to 30mins......my main issue with this mask is that is doesn't leave my hair soft. My hair feels dried out and hard to manage..and my hair isn't super thin or too thick either so idk but I passed this on to my husband who has long kinda thin straight and a little coarse (Asian) hair.....and this stuff works well for him and his hair feels soft and hydrated!

I have repurchased several times, I love this masque!! The scent is nice and soft; very floral and light. It's a light protein treatment so I don't use it often, maybe once a week or two. I apply on damp hair overnight and place a baggy. When I wake up my hair is left soft. Now I don't use it on a regular basis so I can't say it makes hair thicker but I can feel it leaves my strands stronger when I rinse out in the morning. Very versatile too, if you need to you can use as a styler.

I have blonde fragile hair. Very Fine and very irritating. I was loosing hair due to vitamin d deficiency and I always want to make my hair look thicker without hair spray because I hate that stuff. Not even for ballet will I use hair spray unless my peers make me. I prefer natural alternatives. Anyway... This mask did nothing for my hair except make it dryer and harder to comb. I tried it least ten times and did not put any on the ends but it still did absolutely nothing for my hair. If you have thin fine hair.. No color treatment... Then maybe? My hair is from another world but my grandfather, who is Latino, is bald, had salt & pepper hair and it is wavy/curly. He loves it! But alas I wouldn't buy it again unless I felt my hair was maybe aging more? The "Shea moisture tahitian noni & monoi" shampoo & conditioner that just came out... Is a miracle for my baby fine blonde frizzy hair.. Less hair fall out, more shine, more manageable! My whole family uses it and loves that line. Try that one for sure if the Yucca line didn't work for you. Hope this helps. Love Shea Moisture regardless!

I LOVE this hair masque for my naturally fine, thin, curly, high porous hair (3c) for the following reasons:1. It works! I didn't follow the directions on how to use it but I did apply it after I co-washed my hair. I made sure my hair was damp prior to applying it, wrapped my hair in a bun, put a plastic cap over my hair and put a turban twist towel over the cap to help trap my bodies natural body heat. I cleaned up my place for about an hour and then hopped back into the shower and washed it out thoroughly with luke warm water. I could not believe how soft, moisturized, thick and strong my hair felt...so happy!!2. The ingredients are amazing! Many natural, nourishing and moisturizing ingredients in this masque.Deionized Water , Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter) , Cocos Nucifera Oil (Coconut) , Mangifera Indica (Mango) Seed Butter , Persea Gratissima Oil (Avocado) , Olea Europaea Oil (Olive) , Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract , Ammonium Salt (Conditioner) , Yucca Filamentosa Extract , Vegetable Protein , Adansonia Digitata Extract (Baobab) , Biotin , Panthenol (Vitamin B-5) , Rosemary Extract , Bamboo Extract , Sorbitol Esters , Caprylyl Glycol , Essential Oil Blend , Tocopherol (Vitamin E)3. Price is spot on! For all of the yummy, healthy ingredients in the masque, I believe the cost is totally worth it!! Plus the container is 12 oz!! Many natural hair products tend to have a higher price tag and definitely a smaller container size. So I love that many of Shea Moistures products are pocket friendly!! Also, I have mid-back length hair and this product thoroughly coated my hair nicely without having to use a lot of the product. I'm guessing if I use this masque once a week, I will probably get 8 uses out of the tub...a bargain for a multi-purpose product! And to top all of that off, Shea Moisture products are constantly on sale (buy 1, get 1 50% off) at Walgreens and discounted a couple of dollars during Target sales. The highest I've seen SM products in a brick and mortar stor is $11.99 for any product of any line.4. I love that this product comes in a tub because the mask is very thick and creamy and it makes applying the mask to my hair easier because I don't have to worry about picking up a bottle with slippery hands.5. It is easy to get my hands on this stuff. I live in NY and I can buy Shea Moisture products at Walgreens, Target, Sallys Beauty Supply, Harmon Face Value, and other local beauty supply stores...and of course many internet stores. The only downside to this product (and practically all of Shea Moistures products) is the scent! It is on the strong floral side. I love the way this line smells (honeysuckle), but it is a tad strong especially in the container. Thankfully once this product is washed out, it leaves a lighter floral scent. Bottom line, if your hair is similar to mine, I HIGHLY recommend you try this product. I'm so happy I finally purchased this.

This is, without a doubt, my HG hair masque! :)One of the main problems I've had with finding review-worthy hair and skin products is that what you see isn't always what you get. In a sea of hair masques, each company is going to try and stand out by printing the most enticing claim on its labels: "Infused with real shea butter! Moisturizes with avocado oil!" But if you glance at the list of ingredients to see what's really in the products, you'll find that many of them are made mostly of fillers and garbage ... with aforementioned avocado oil right at the bottom of the list.That's not the case with Shea Moisture's Yucca & Baobab Anti-Breakage Masque. It's full-to-the-brim with healthy ingredients for your hair. (Speaking of shea butter, it's second on the list!) It deeply moisturizes my fragile, chemically-straightened strands without making my hair feel greasy or weighing it down. And it makes my hair so easy to comb - even after I wash all of the product out, I still have great slip. Goodbye, breakage! :)I also love the scent - herbal, fresh, and slightly sweet. It's a bit strong at first, but it does fade and is a lot less noticeable by the time I've dried my hair.Those with thicker or drier hair may need something more moisturizing (such as the Raw Shea Butter Restorative Masque in the same line), but you should totally give this a try if you have fine hair! :)

I like the consistency of this masque. It's very light and whipped. It makes my hair feel thicker and stronger. I usually mix it with a few tsp of oil (olive, avocado,jojoba) and let it sit under a plastic cap for at least an hour. I don't know if I will buy it again but when I run out I'll try something else from this line!--update--I read a few other reviews and noticed someone said this made her hair feel rough. I can kind of understand that and I want to say that I personally use this as more of a protein treatment. It will strengthen your hair and thicken it up. But it won't make it very shiny and soft. Do a quick moisture masque afterwards and maybe a leave in.--update--I didn't end up repurchasing this because I found other deep conditioners that I liked more. I've also lost interest in this product line. I don't want a conditioner that forces me to mix it with other products. I used up the whole jar but it wasn't good enough to recommend.By itself it didn't leave my hair soft and didn't add shine.

Pros:1) all natural/organic2) GREAT ingredients list3) love the smell and consistency (its thick, and it stays in place!!)Cons:1) does not leave my hair soft or manageable**2) at times my hair feels really rough, hard to comb through****when used alone and NOT followed moisturizing conditionerI would buy this over and over and over again. I use this masque as an after shampoo treatment once or twice a month (i usually leave it on, put on a disposable shower cap, and go about by business, clean, cook, watch tv blah blah).i leave it on for about 2-3 hours, then i rinse, and apply a SUPER hydrating and moisturizing conditioner afterwards (tresemme anti breakage conditioner)! I consider this to be more of a protein treatment, and I think that's why it leaves my hair so brittle, dry, rough after just rinsing it and not applying a moisturizing conditioner after wards.over time, this has helped my overly processed (dyed, highlighted, bombed) hair to look and feel healthy, thick, and amazing!i also use it on my ends as a before shampoo treatment (about 2-3 time a week). i put coconut/castor/olive oil on my roots, lengths and ends for a good 20-30 mins before i shampoo, and i apply this on my ends (the most damaged parts)i'm of south asian descent, and have fine hair. i love that this product does not weight my hair down, as some other protein treatments I've used in the past has.
Are you sure this product is discontinued?
