This simply does not do what it says on the tin: it just doesn't work for my 3b hair. I expect my hair to feel soft and ultra conditioned after using a treatment such as this but this product is so bad that my hair feels like straw when I remove it. I've tried keeping it overnight thinking it might help, in vain. I actually have to use conditioners after rinsing this off to put some moisture BACK in my hair which should most definitely not be required had it done it's job in the first place! A big no no for me I'm afraid.

this product is the only thing that my high porosity, fine and medium to high density hair likes that actually keeps it soft. I have tried the cantu deep treatment and this as a leave in with glycerine mixed in and a light oil and nothing compares to this product. Its just a shame that my pockets cry when i have to get more of this since my hair misbehaves without it.

I tried this with olive oil mixed in and my hair was nice but I also tried it without olive oil and I my hair felt even more soft. I don't think my hair likes oils after much experimenting so I'll keep using it on it's own. It has easy slip and was easy to detangle my hair. I even use it to scrunch out my SM curling smoothie (as I still put to much on my hair) and it leaves my curls soft and bouncy. I will also use it to scrunch out my SM curl soufflé and hopefully get the same results. Great product and will keep purchasing it.

I have had other products in this line and once again I wasn't let down regarding quality. It smells great but it's not over powering. The mask has great slip for detangling. I usually steam with my Shea Moisture mask and the results are pretty good as far as products go.

I tried this product as a deep conditioner, as a leave in, as a styler, i even tried mixing it with out products. It did nothing and i mean nothing for my hair.

No difference to my hair. Actually ended up using the Giovanni 50/50 conditioner as treatment which did the job. I have fine hair and l am mid transition. I preferred the the thickening mask which seemed to work better for my hair. This seems to leave it a bit lifeless.

I love this masque on my hair it's really moisturising on my natural hair. I have kinky hair that is very prone to dryness so i have to moisturise twice daily and deep deep condition at least once a week depends on how my hair feels. It's not too bad as a detangler but it could have more slip. I will be purchasing soon as i have nearly run out. Good product

This product worked amazingly well on my hair. My hair post deep condition was so much softer and curlier.
The smell does not bother me and isn't too strong in my opinion

I hate the smell of the gold label shea moisture products its highly perfumed and smells like a cheap perfume. This treatment mask didn't do anything for my hair and for the price I am actually disappointed. No softness, sheen nada. I am finally giving up my qyest for the perfect deep conditioner and will be making my own without any synthetic fragrance (which may I add has an array of nasties alone despite being "organic"). Therefore I will not be purchasing again but the customer service is 100% so thank you.

I always prefer deep conditioning with products that have provide enough moisture as well as slip for detangling. i will say yes to moisture and no for detangling. I mixed this masque with my amla oil to facilitate detangling and I still had more knots to work through so, no, I will not be purchasing again, the soufle however is fantastic-now my staple styling product for wash and go! Has anyone tried the other shea moisture masque?

Unfortunately this product do not work for me at all! I tried it by it'self and with a little oil mixed in. I've actually given it away as I hate wasting products. For some reason I could not detangle with it and my hair felt like straw afterwards. There must be an ingredient in it that my hair doesn't like, I just haven't figured out which one it is yet. It's a shame as I do like a few items from the Shea Moisture but this product just didn't work for me.
Posted by Agata on 12th Jun 2014
The masque is very good. I'm using it as masque and I'm leaving it for 30 min or more on my hair but more often I'm using it to co-wash my hair. Is detangling my hair really good. Nice smell. really good product.

But bad detangler
Posted by liz on 18th Jan 2014
I purchased this product originally when I was transitioning two years ago and it was the best product I had for transitioning hair because it really does help repair your hair and keep it moisturised
So I decided to try it again now that I'm fully natural I have thick 4a/b curl pattern and before I started using this it would take hours to detangle my hair, now because this has helped repair my ends it is so much easier to detangle and has helped define my curls more effectively.
I've also noticed a lot less breakage when washing my hair, it doesn't get as knotted as easily as it used to it and like I said before if it does get tangled it is so much easier to detangle as my strands are softer and more manageable now
If your hair is dry, breaking easily, knotted or transitioning I would recommend this!

I LOVE this masque!!
I use it as a deep conditioner, leave it in for a few hours, rinse and voila!!
Super soft and moisturized hair! And the smell is lovely!!
No other deep conditioner that I used works as good for me as this one.

I often use this product as a pre poo or as a deep conditioner. I put it on with a plastic cap and leave for 45mins. It makes my hair so soft and defines curls. This mask also gives great hold when doing twist outs and braid outs. This is a great product with really good ingredients. The only reason i didn't give it 5 stars is because i'm not overly keen on the smell.

I absolutely love this product. perfect for transitioning from relaxed hair to natural. left my hair soft and manageable. I also got the transitioning milk and used it as a leave in conditioner

Didn't work well for me as a deep treatment but loved it as a leave in x

Firstly I must commend the service I got from the website. Very impressive. Goods arrived promptly and well packaged. I really love this product. When you look at the ingredients, there's nothing not to love about it. I don't use this as a deep conditioner but for twisting my hair. It leaves my hair super moisturised and really soft all through the week.

I could talk about this treatment until the cows come home. In short, what a fantastic masque. I use this masque for twist as oppose to deep treatment. I could not bare to waste it by washing it out. I have a type 4C hair and my hair texture and feel has literally transformed by twisting my hair with it. No more breakage for me since this masque is healing my hair until my wash day. It is my favourite of the Shea Line. It is my staple twist butter not plans to change for now. It has done wonders for my hair literally and will keep it as long it continues to heal my hair. I have given it 5* rating because that is what it deserves.

Très bon masque!

I love the Shea moisture brand, their products are unique for me safe , secure and reasonably priced. I visited USA sometimes ago and bought loads of their stuff. I try the product first time on my daughter hair, she has a 4a hair type, the masque went on softly, and I could say melted away easily. good for detangling. it made me see her hair in a different dimension. When I used it myself it was good but I felt it was not specifically designed for my 3a hair type. but I will say it looks like I would purchase it for my daughter again.

Used for the first time after using henna, usually after a henna treatment my hair is very dry and straw like (but strong) and I would use a basic conditioner mixed with coconut oil. This time I just used deep traetment masque and it left my 4C hair feeling extra soft.
Posted by Sutra28 on 5th Feb 2013
I use this product as a twist cream/ moisturiser on dry or damp hair. It gives me a super defined twist out and my hair is uber soft for days. I am 4b/4c btw. 10 stars to this product.
Posted by Melly on 13th Jan 2013
Makes my hair Dry as hay ,absolutley awful.i used it as pree poo,Deep conditioner ,big failI m very disappointed . 2c hair .
Posted by curliely on 14th Dec 2012
this did not work too well for me, i cannot stand the scent of this product as it tends to linger too much. otherwise slip is not instant, u have to wait a while to be able to detangle. it has some softening effect on the hair but i would not repurchase
Posted by charm on 21st Nov 2012
I have 4a hair, normal/to high porosity, normal strand hair and my hair loves oils. This is honestly the best conditioner i have used on my hair and i have used ALOT of different ones, I used it to deep condition and left it in to dry and didn't have to seal my hair as the moisture stayed in my hair (the Shea butter I'm guessing). My hair is soft like butter and I also noticed curl definition. Finally, I used Eco styler gel over it and usually have to rise my hair the next day because its hard but my hair is soft and feels moisturized still. I will definitely repurchase this product

Hair feels rejuvenated, loved and appreciated! Such soft curls. Really moisturises very well on 3c/4a afro hair!
Posted by chanel on 5th Oct 2012
great thick conditioner
personally use it as a leaving
keeps hair soft and healthy but dont really like the smell
Posted by May on 28th Mar 2012
I've only just started using this product, and i feel like it has already started to repair my hair.
I use it as a leave in, and then I use the bee mine balanced moisturiser on top of it and then I seal with either Shea butter again (Shea butter overload, I know, lol), or an oil. My braid out stayed defined and it gave me a lot of volume which I really liked and at the same time my hair felt really nice and soft to touch.
I will repurchase.

Finally used this deep conditioner last night. I was worried because if has gotten mixed reviews, but I was pleasantly surprised. I left it on for an hour after a co-wash with a plastic cap. My hair was soft, moisturized, & my curls were defined. I added jojoba oil to it, but I do that to all my DC's. & the price!!!! Much better than more expensive products.
Posted by Dee on 28th Feb 2012
I hated this product as a deep treatment masque as it left my hair dry and straw like but as a twist/braid out aid, it gave me great definition, moisture and shine. I also love the fact that it does not contain coconut as my hair hates the stuff but the majority of products have it as an ingredient.
Posted by Unknown on 31st Jan 2012
I used this product for a braid out and it looked beautiful. Then later in the week I wet my hair and put some gel on it my hair looked and felt gorgeous. Would definitely re-purchase this product.
Posted by Unknown on 28th Jan 2012
Shampooo was BEAUTIFUL, so I was excited for this hair masque - however it was awful, my hair felt like waxy straw! Sooo disappointed
