My curl enhancing smoothie arrived in perfect condition and super fast. I’ve been using this product for the past four years, and it is seriously one of my favorite products. I always know that my curls are going to come out perfect when i use this, and my hair is always moisturized. I compared this jar to the current one i have (that i bought from the store), and it seems legit.The packaging, consistency, and smell are all the same.
I have fine curls that frizz like crazy. I do usually use this as the only product on my hair. However, if you find that this product is too much, try the curl milk instead. When all my curls fell out post baby, the milk was all i needed for control and definition and i found the smoothie to be too oily for my hair. Now, however, that all my hair has grown back in it is absolutely my favorite hair productthere is another one, a gel cast, that’s a step up from this. That one is still too oily for my hair type. And you may have to try a few different products to find the right hold. Pros:-silky to the touch-works as a complete product-works just as well on dry, second or third day haircons:-just one, it smells kind of gross after using other shea moisture productsalso, if you have been using plastics on your hair (such as mousse and other normal products) then you will have build up for a short time while your hair figures out what to do without silicones.

I have tried several of these products, and this one is the best, i’ve used it for over 6 years now, daily. It helps me control frizz, protect my hair from uv rays, and gives it lots of body. It’s the only product i have found that doesn’t give me ‘flakes’ in my hair, too. It has the perfect formulation and smells great (unlike some other preparations with neem. ) i’m caucasian, auburn-haired, 60 years old and have never dyed my hair – and i have only 3 or 4 gray hairs. I think this product helps condition it and keeps it in great shape.
I really didn’t know what to expect. I’m a 3c/4a with low porosity who usually uses gel because it’s the only way to lock in water define my curls, but i thought i’d give this a try. My hair is way more defined than it is using conditioner alone. I would say the definition is almost as good as gel but because it’s natural and soft, i like it. I would recommend giving it a shot.
If you have curly hair, the search for the right product can seem never-ending and frustrating. This product defines my curls beautifully. I also like the light scent. It’s not overwhelming, but refreshing. I also think this tub is going to last for a long time.
SheaMoisture Coconut and Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie, 12 oz. : Update (10/3/2015): my recipe (below) is for short hair (e. My hair is now 9 inches long and i have a completely different hair recipe (e. I’ve had a perm on my hair for 36 years. I thought my real hair was nappy, unruly, dry, frizzy, and unmanageable. But, my hair started thinning and i decided to get a bc. After the chop, my hair was dull, dry, had no pattern of curls. But, i washed my hair with design essentials organic cleanse deep cleansing shampoo and moisture retention conditioning shampoo, and conditioned it with stimulations moisturizing creme. Then, i applied mixed chicks leave-in conditioner (about 50 cent piece worth). Right afterwards, i evenly distributed two 50 cent pieces worth of shea moisturizer smoothie. I rubbed it between my hands and smoothed it from the front of my hair line to the back. Afterwards, i smoothed it back with my hands and let it air dry. Within seconds, my curls became more defined as it dried. For the first 5 minutes, my hair had a light layer of white coating. So, within those 5 minutes, the white coating was gone.
My hair is usually extremely frizzy. I have been trying to get my curls back for quite some time now and they are starting to come back. This cream helps tame my frizz without the greasy feeling. It does not weigh my hair down and it actually smells delicious.
I am pleased with the way this product adds moisture and reduces frizz for my toddler’s hair. She has several different hair textures, and this leave in conditioner was perfect for managing loose curls and tight curls alike. A little goes a long way, and it is best to work in small sections of hair with small amounts of product. I ordered this because i loved the smell of the conditioner. So pleasant and not over-powering. I co-wash with the conditioner and apply this leave-in to wet hair to detangle while she bathes. I also apply a very small amount daily on damp hair that has been spritzed with water. I focus application on the back of her head where the tightest curls are. The pic gives you an idea of her hair type. The back gets so matted after sleeping, and a little water and conditioner fluffs it right upi plan to try more products because of the company’s philosophy.
I live by this stuff makes my curls bouncy and soft, just full of life. I use this everyday and couldn’t live without it.
I really love how shiny and smooth this product makes my hair. I’ve found with experimenting that it works best if i first put a gel in my curl, let it dry almost completely, then use this balm while the hair is barely damp–it will re-define the curl, but will also completely tame all of the frizz. I have never had shiny or soft curls before using this product. Last night i even went out in the rain, and it still looked perfect when i got home. Don’t use too much, or it will leave your hair oily and sticky.
My daughters (age 10) hair is very thick and curly. This is the first product i have found, after using a countless number of products, and spending hundreds of $, that actually works at managing her curls.
I can’t live without this product. I have natural, 4b hair and not only does it moisture without feeling heavy or oily, i also use this product on my boys hair. I use it sparingly, every other day, and my hair hasn’t felt more healthy. Compared to other products i’ve tried, this one beats them hands down when it comes to both price ad effectiveness. My daughter stole my jar so i’ll be ordering more soon.
My son purchased this product from a local beauty supply store. When i tried it i just fell in love with it and had to get more. It is cheaper on amazon then at the local store. I am a middle eastern heritage and have super curly hair this is miracle product. Leaves my hair soft and never dry.
I just use this on my thick wavy hair and i love the curls it gave me. My hair is curly in the summer and indecisive waves in the winter that go frizzy, so i always end up straightening it in the colder months. This gave my curl definition and made my hair look healthy and fun. I did use a little gel for better hold. If you are on the fence, go buy it and try it a couple of times with the right amount for your hair. I do imagine that it could weigh thin hair down a bit, but if you have frizzy thicker hair or waves or curly hair then you will love it.
I have very think hair and it’s corse, a mix between beach wave and curly. This product gave me so much more curls then any product i’ve ever used. I just sprayed some wanted to get my hair damp then applied it.
This products makes my thin, frizzy, dull, damaged, premature gray, died blonde hair come alive. I have a hard time leaving my hair alone and ‘going with’ the natural texture which is wavy/curly/frizzy. This stuff is the best product i have ever used on my hair. It says on label it is for thick hair, that made me hesitant to try it. Trust me, even for us thin haired folks, this stuff adds a moisturizing light conditioning element that makes the curls so happy. My hair is bouncy with a very nice, naturally defined wavy curl. I do not usually like curl enhancing products as they make my hair crunchy. I have a stock of those kind of products under my sink that i do not use anymore. I’ve had excellent results with air drying and diffusing.
I order this to help my hair to curl and soften and it works my hair feels good. I had to get my hair cut real short cause it fail out. I believe this is helping me a lot.
I am not sure if i like this product as i have only used it twice. First of all, i have fine curly hair. I tried this product the first time with out using any other product. My hair very soft, but it made the curls very weak. By the end of the day my hair was just wavy. The second time i used it i mixed it with other products including a jell and a mousse. With that it worked very well and my curls were beautiful, but i am not sure that was the shea butter or the other products. I feel that it is a great product if you have tight curls and course hair. I am not convinced it is good for fine hair. I will give in another ‘lone’ try and see what happens.
I was undecided between this and the style milk and bought both. Between the two my hair felt softer with the milk. Gives a slight hold without being sticky. Not what i was looking for but will use it in my child’s hair which is finer and looser in curl. It gives some moisture but not enough to be considered a leave in and that is what i need and was looking for for my 4b hair.
I had 4b 4c hair and i guess my expectations was set too high for this product. I see a lot of positive reviews but for the price it just didn’t live up to the hype. I’ve tried using this product in several ways and one being a wash and ‘don’t ‘ my curl wasn’t defined as it should have been. I figured well maybe it’s not meant for the washoping and go so i did a simple two strain twist out. It came out okay but i wasn’t wowed. Especially since i’ve used less expensive products which had similar results. I may give it another try but at the moment i can do without.
I took a shower and put a sparing amount in my damp hair and combed it in. This picture is taken after wearing the product for about 5 hours. I have been out to ranch to clean my horse’s stall and then out for a 3 mile walk to and back from the park. It’s very very windy today so i knew it would be a great test for the product. Little dried out at the ends but i’ll just put more product there next time.
