Where to buy?

Target and WalgreensThese products are geared towards thick and curly hair.

While transitioning to natural hair moisture is the key.  You are dealing with two different textures which if not taken care of properly can result in a lot of breakage. Lack of moisture will definitely add to possible breakage.

Shea Moisture products are all natural and cost $9.99 each. While some may think that is a bit much for a product it is actually reasonable for an all natural product. Generally with Shea Moisture products a little goes a long way so on average a bottle can last 2-3 months easy. They are great for both natural and relaxed hair.

There are three lines within the collection and I have tried products in two of those lines.  Their collection is now a staple in my hair regimen. No matter how many other products I try I always end up back to Shea Moisture – and I have tried quite a few.

Shea Moisture Organic Coconut & Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie.

*Very thick-It coats my hair just like I like it. It is not runny.
*The smell is great.
*It was great for my hair it left it extremely soft.

As with most of the products in their line they can be used for many purposes. I started out using this product with twistouts. I have actually tried a few products to help define and hold my twist and always end up  back with the smoothie. Although I wish the smoothie had more of a hold, I do like my twistouts and the softness and shine this product gives my hair. I do not like the hard feeling that gels and some other products give my twists, so I much rather twists a little more often than to leave my hail feeling "crunchy". The smoothie also adds some thickness to my twist which when I still had relaxed hair was great. Since becoming completely natural I have also used this product for added moisture on a daily basis and my hair never feels dry and the smell is great! In my opinion, the only downfall to this product is the lack of hold if you are using it for twist and/or braidouts.

The Pros: Shea Moisture Shampoo

hair felt soft and buttery!

Cons: The smell kind of smells like medicine

Shea Moisture Organic Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention ShampooI recommend this product line to everyone. I can't think of anything that was wrong with Coconut and Hibiscus line. It did not leave a residue or any flaking. It is just great. If you look at the photo above you could see the mist is getting low, I used the product almost everyday :) It has protein in it so that may affect some who are protein sensitive. If you are looking for a product that will make your hair softer, smell great, great for braid/twist outs and also will bring out your natural curls then this product is for you. It is all natural and organic.
