I like this product - less is more. It gives good moisture to my curls.

I absolutely love this product for my naturally curly hair which is a mixture of curl types. I find it enhances the less curly bits, relaxes thebtight bits and best of all stops frizz! And on the second day my hair is still looking good.

A little goes a long long way. A heavy hand leaves my hair feeling and looking greasy. The smell is quite strong but I liked it so wasn't too bothered. It doesn't really enhance my curls as I find it a bit too greasy. The best way I've founf to use this is to use a tiny amount (I dab my finger in) and mix it together without my leave in or gel.

I had great hopes on this one but I ended up realizing that it may not be the best product for my thin and wavy hair. The smoothie tend to weight down my hair and my already thin hair looks very flat upon drying. However I still gave it a 3 because we all have different types of hair and am pretty sure that it could work wonders on curlier hair than mine. It smells great tho and I'll keep using it on and off - can't let the money go to waste :-p

This is the first Shea Moisture product I have ever used and it changed my life! Finally, a styling product I can use on its own!! Since it doesn't have strong hold I usually use it on my second day after my weekly wash/condition/masque routine. It smells divine and keeps my hair fragrant all day long. Started using end of February and its July now so it goes a long way but now about to order the second tub as I anticipate it will be all gone by end of August (I don't use it every day and always on wet hair).

Love this for my 4c hair and my daughters 4a/b hair. We use in our LOC method.
Posted by Rosa on 25th Jan 2016
I use a little bit of this sometimes (when my hair is super dry]. I have 2b/2c dry, frizzy hair. I just don't think it's right for for my hair. It tends to sit on my hair, especially on dry hair, and doesn't sink in, my hair usually absorbs oils quite well but this is very thick. The hibiscus curl milk is much better for me, that's my perfect product. I think it would work really well on thicker, curlier hair!

I have fine curly hair that's a mix of a bit of 3a (underside), lots of 3b (topside) and some 3c (around my face), and my hair tends to range from low to high porosity depending on the texture. Recently, my hair has been very dry and has been losing its curl, so I've been hunting for more moisturising, CG products to replace my usual go-tos.
I always thought this product was for curlier textures, but I'm now a convert. The texture is sort of pudding-y and spreads nicely over my hands. I normally apply it directly over my Trésemme Naturals leave-in straight out the shower (I blot my hair briefly with a t-shirt first). My technique is to spread a small 5p-sized amount over my hands (a little goes a long way!), then rake it through my hair upside-down from root to tip in small-ish sections. My fine, dense hair takes about 6 blobs upside-down, plus a final one right-side up for good measure. I then scrunch my hair up gently with my hands and plop for about 15-20 mins before adding my favourite gel (UG Flirty Curls) and diffusing, since it doesn't have any hold by itself.
Now I've perfected my technique, my curls get a lot of volume without drying mousses and really pop -- and they finally seem to be staying moisturised between washes. If they do get a bit dry, I find working a small amount (maybe 2 x 5ps) into my damp/dry hair helps solve the problem, and also revives any wilting twirls and spirals, but the product works better when my hair is wet. Combined with the Yucca & Baobab Thickening & Volumizing Hair Care System, the cream has turned my usually flat 3a curls into 3bs instead, and never seems to weigh down my fine hair or make it stiff, no matter how much I apply over the course of the week. My previous cream tended to make my hair dull and dry if used several times between washes, but my hair just soaks this stuff up and couldn't be happier.
The only way I could fault this product is the smell, which is more hibiscus than coconut to me and was really overpowering at first -- I initially worried it was a deal-breaker. Thankfully, it seems to fade once it's on your hair (especially if applied to wet curls), so you don't smell like a pina colada forever. Now I've been using the product for a while, it's actually grown on me a lot and I can't stop smelling my hands when I use it!
I'll definitely be buying this again when my pot finally runs out!

keeps my thick afro hair moist and a good styler product excellent product
Posted by curlyirishgal on 6th Sep 2015
have only used once on my fine 2c-3b hair (heavier products do seem to generally work for me) I didn't use a gel on top yet which I think might help a lot. not loving so far, but need to experiment a bit more.
Posted by Unknown on 22nd Jun 2015
I have a TWA after the big chop and I found that this product alone is not enough for my hair which is of a fine and soft texture - it didn't enhance my curls very well so had to use with gel - may be I am not using enough! Other than that I love the ingredients and smell.

Gave me really natural defined curls without being dry or crispy. Will last a long time as I only need a small bit and I have thick long hair so it's really not that expensive
Posted by Lisa on 29th May 2015
I loved how naturally soft and hydrated this made my 4b/3b curls look. It got rid of all the frizz, even my really coarse sections in the middle. This also tightened my curls and gave me subtle shine and a delicate floral scent.
I'm really surprised this worked so well cos my hair usually hates glycerine, it loves silk protein though so perhaps that cancelled it out.
Its almost perfect, except that by day 3 I have lost a lot of definition although I still don't have much frizz - my curls are just kind of messy and looser. I actually get much better and longer lasting curl definition from Desert essence shine and refine lotion but this will be just fine for when that runs out. Oh and I don't really have any obvious residue - I just noticed that by the 2nd day my hair looked a little matte, I'd say that was a fine residue - not really noticeable...

It took me a while to figure out how to use this on my fine boticelli curls. I use it on dry hair - a small amount on my finger tips - to revamp tired, dispersed curls at the end of the day or on second day. I now keep a small pot in my handbag for curl SOS! The smell is delicious, the ingredients are lovely. top marks!

Product has made my curls bouncy and soft :)
Posted by jenny on 7th Apr 2015
smells lovely and a little goes a long way. will buy it again.
Posted by Unknown on 2nd Apr 2015
I have a curl pattern that can be easily defined. This just sits on my hair when trying wash and gos. Is better with a twist out. Have had better results with a standard conditioner alone for couple of quid. I like the ingredients which I what I believe we are paying for but slightly over rated for me. Also next day hair looks dry although it can feel soft. Not sure what that's all about...

I use this on my little girl's hair. It definitely get her curls popping. A little bit goes a long way. It smells great too.
Love it love it.

This product keeps my 3c hair moisturised and soft would definitely recommend
Posted by Unknown on 23rd Dec 2014
I spritz my daughters hair then put this in every morning and it brings the curls straight back and really defines them, I don't know what u would do without this product! It's a lifesaver

black Friday is a couple days away, personally wishing sheamoisture and darcy's products will be on sale :)
Posted by Anna on 17th Nov 2014
I first bought this product last year and I must say it's one of the best used. The texture and scent is wonderful. I don't need to use too much, just a 10p size amount daily. I have already recommended it to family and friends.
Posted by NM1 on 15th Nov 2014
It doesn't doing anything for my 3c hair!
Posted by Unknown on 10th Nov 2014
This is a good product when you have a good hair day, then it will add lots of moisture. But on a bad hair day, this will not save your dry hair.
When you put it in your hair, it doesn´t add lots of softness as i expected.
Posted by Minty on 21st Oct 2014
I'm using this as a styler over my leave in and oil. You have to be careful not to use too much but at the moment the results are good. After applying the product and skip curling some of my more stubborn areas of hair into spirals and scrunching others I leave my hair to air dry. The results are spirals that are initially hard/crunchy to the touch but once you scrunch out the crunch I am left with super soft , shiny and well defined curls. Curls also last well into day 2. Will definitely repurchase!

Great for my 3b-c hair
Posted by Nabs on 4th Oct 2014
This product is really good and moisturises my hair i have 4b / 4c hair.
I'm happy with my purchase. Thanks
Posted by Mona on 3rd Oct 2014
There's a hype about this product on the social networks and i thought i'd give it ago.
We'll let me just say i'm glad i tried it because it has made my hair manageable (i have a 3C-4A hair) . It moisturizes it perfectly and i tend to use it every other day with my protective style. I use it along with Ecostyler gel, pure olive oil and then wrap my hair in flexi rods and let it air dry over night. I'd highly recommend it because it does the job better then i thought.
Posted by K on 29th Sep 2014
I use this as a leave in conditioner. It adds moisture and creates a good base for my styling products. It does not create curls in my hair but it does make my hair feel soft and nourished which is why I use it as a leave in.
Posted by Unknown on 19th Jul 2014
I often use this under my gels when doing a wash and go. It leaves my hair soft. The consistency and smell goes is a bit weird but I am heavy handed with it and still have loads left. So it is very economical.
Posted by Niki with soft curls on 13th Jun 2014
Brilliant on dry hair to give back body and bounce. Great smell and good in between washes. This has helped revive my curl. I was afraid it would be too heavy for my delicate curls but quite the opposite. Definitely buy again.
Posted by Agata on 12th Jun 2014
I purchased this product after reading many reviews in the Internet. I'm using it almost every time after washing my hair. usually when my hair are wet. the smell is really nice and sweet. my hair are very soft with this product. the big jar will last me forever as you don't need a lot of it.
Posted by French Caribbean girl on 10th Jun 2014
I purchased twice because it defined my curly perfectly but leaves out some with flakes in my hair and leave my hair all greasy.
Posted by Unknown on 24th Apr 2014
Arrived in time ... Lovely packaging and the product is all it's cracked up to be
Posted by Sienna on 22nd Apr 2014
One tub lasted me three and a half months, I was constantly receiving compliments for how great my hair smelled and how healthy my curls looked and It felt even better because not only could I pronounce each and every ingredient I knew where each one came from. Great product!
Posted by Unknown on 17th Apr 2014
OMG! I love it! I use to supplement my leavin conditioner to seal in moisture and define my curls. It's my must have!
Posted by Unknown on 1st Apr 2014
This product doesn't weight hair down, smells amazing and is pretty versatile in use. I put it in after washing, when wet, but also when my curls start to come apart after a day or two, this product gives them a new lease of life.
I really love this product, would buy again and would definitely recommend!
Posted by Unknown on 29th Mar 2014
Fantastic product, does not weigh my hair down,great for twists out, leaves my hair soft, shiny and bouncy. Plus the service from curly emporium is on point! One of my staple styler.
Posted by Fa' on 17th Mar 2014
