I LOVE this stuff! I’ve been using it for well over a year now. My mom started using Shea Moisture products and, of course, I had to try them out. I use this product when protective styling and doing braid/twist outs. Not only is it very moisturizing, but the moisture it gives is long lasting. I like that it works well whether I’m using it on damp or dry hair also.
The product itself is thick and creamy. It has a sweet scent to it, which does tend to linger after it’s been applied. I do not mind the lingering scent because I really like the way it smells. With this product, a little goes a long way. Using too much definitely weighs down my hair for twist/braid outs. I can really tell the difference when I use this versus when I don’t as far as the reduction of frizz and having smooth, soft hair is concerned. Although I still have to use a gel for hold, this product does a great job enhancing curls for me, too. I think this is great product at a great price especially since it has quality ingredients.
