Shea Moisture Product Review: Shea Moisture Coconut and Hibiscus Shampoo, Curl & Style Milk, Smoothie and Soufflé!

In the beginning of my natural hair journey I had issues with dry hair. My hair never stayed moisturized for more than a day. I was then advised to try Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie and I loved it. So, I tried the entire coconut & hibiscus line and I love them. Their products are all organic and very affordable. Below is a product review of these products. Enjoy!

Shea Moisture ORGANIC Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Shine Shampoo

What it promises:
Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl and Shine Shampoo gently cleans, hydrates and detangles hair for bouncy and healthy curls.

My Thoughts:
Hands down the best shampoo I ever used. This is a must have for everyone (natural, permed, locs, kids, etc). It does exactly what it says it should do and more. And at $9.99 for a good all natural shampoo; that's great. STAPLE! Will always repurchase.

It really cleans. It is affordable. A bottle last forever because you only need a small amount. Do not strip the hair and it suds. It leaves my hair feeling really soft. You cant live  without.

Cons: NONE!

Shea Moisture ORGANIC Coconut & Hibiscus Curl and Style Milk

What it promises:
Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Style Milk has coconut oil, silk protein and Neem oil that adds moisture, body and shine to your curls. Keeps curly hair frizz-free, shiny and healthy.

My Thoughts:
The best little leave in around town. Lol! This is my first bottle but I think it will be a staple. It's light and my hair soaks it up so well. Makes my hair feels really soft and shiny.

It is very light so my hair is not weighed down. Very moisturizing. Leaves hair shiny without feeling greasy. It is affordable.


Shea Moisture ORGANIC Coconut & Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie

What it promises:
Nutrient rich vegetable butters condition hair, restoring moisture, body and shine. Enhances curls, minimizes frizz and provides curl control.

My Thoughts:
This has been my go to moisturizer since I big chopped Aug 2011. It moisturizes my hair and offer shine without being greasy. I apply it to damp or dry hair and my hair loves it. I normally moisturize using the LOC method. I have experimented with lots of products but I always come back to this. It's the one product I stock up on. I never miss a Target sale. Lol! If you need a great moisturizer then look no further.

Moisturizes and seals very well. Hair is soft for days and very little if any frizz.

Con: NONE!

Shea Moisture ORGANIC Coconut & Hibicus Curling Soufflé

What it promises:
It defines and promotes curls with a soft smooth after-feel.

My thoughts:
The soufflé is a custardy gel like product. Not sure I can quite explain the consistency but its a good product for hold and shine. It leaves my twist and braid outs very defined without the crunchy flaky effect you will get from a gel. This product goes a longggggg way and that is no joke. If you are heavy handed then you are going to hate it. Using a lot can result in a greasy volcano on your head because it has coconut and flax seed oil in it. I mix a small amount with the smoothie and my result is soft shiny defined hair style.

Provide hold and shine for twist outs and braid outs.

Can be greasy if you use a lot of product while styling.

In addition to these products I also tried the Cowash and loved it. Click Here to See that review.

  1. I absolutely love the curl & style milk, it moisterizes very well. The smoothie doesn't do much for my hair. The souffle is greasy but works fine.

    1. Yea I am loving the milk. The smoothie to me is great as long as its not used on wet hair but damp or dry instead. The soufflé I prefer mixed with a cream base.

  2. The Curl & Style Milk is definitely HG for me; I've been using it for several months, and it works well on both WnGs and two strand twists for me. It has good hold, moisturizes, adds shine...I love it. The Smoothie is good, too. I just have to remember not to be heavy handed with it. It's great for doing TOs (in my previous life *le sigh*), and adding hold in general. One of my friends who is texturized uses the Smoothie when she does BOs and wavy buns, and it works really well for her. I love that SM can be used on multiple textures :-)

  3. I've been natural since 1998. I just started using their products last week, and really love it thus far. Do you have any suggestions for a detangler?

    1. Hey girl. If I am washing my hair then i detangle with the conditioner I am using. If I am detangling clean hair than I spritz my hair with a little water or my Aloe Vera mix. Then add the smoothie or style milk to my hair. With wide tooth comb start detangling from the ends and work your way to the roots.

      If you feel your hair pulling or too much hair in the comb then STOP! Finger detangle so you can feel for where the knots are so you can unravel.

      Try my Aloe Vera mix

  4. Have you ever tried Hair Rules products? Just wanted to get your viewpoint.

    1. Hey! No i have not tried Hair Rules but I want to. I have heard good things about it tho. But, i cant say for myself.

INTERLOCKING ROTATION | 2 Point vs 4 Point Rotation On Locs

INTERLOCKING ROTATION | 2 Point vs 4 Point Rotation On Locs

Hi Loves,

I always get asked about how do I interlock my locs and the rotation I used - whether its 2-point or 4-point rotation. Some people also use the term 2-way or 4-way rotation.

In the video below, I illustrate on my own locs, the difference between the two methods. you can then compare for yourself, if there is a difference between the two by looking at my locs.

Do you interlock your locs? Share below which rotation do you use?
