I'm starting to think my hair loves shea butter because most of my moisturizers have shea butter in it! I went to the beauty supply down the street and bought this product. I've read some good reviews on it from women with hair textures similar to mine so I knew it would be good. I used it on wet hair and it my hair felt really moisturized. Until it dried. Then, it felt a little dry so I added a little bit more and it was back to soft. This product is great and I do plan to keep it in my product haul. Has anybody tried it?

Although I'm not natural, I love using this. It smells divine and when used in my hair whether wet or dry my hair feels so soft. Just the other day I used it to help my hair in a twist out. After my hair dried and I undid the curls were so defined and soft.

I use this during my wash days. It's a really good product for coily hair.

I love using this product to do twist styles. I add shea butter or coconut oil to keep it from drying out. So far I have loved the results.

I like this. It's nice and cheap and you can get it from Walmart. However, the moisture doesn't last long and I'm not too big a fan of the texture. When I learn to cornrow my hair better I will definitely revisit this product.

I love this product, it's somewhere in my cabinet in the bathrrom but it works wonders for my long kinky hair. I also love the other conditioner that comes in a flater and wider container. This product doesn't work well on everyones hair type, but it does wonders for me.

So I'm transitioning from relaxed to Natural and It works OK for me. When I firt got it I was really impressed that Shea Butter was the SECOND ingredient on the list and for only 3.99. It work pretty alright though it's hard to work into your hair and it is a little dry afterwards, but that' because it has protein wayyy down the list. Another bonus. I guess I'll just have to wait and see how it works out.

i am natural... but i usually straighten my 1/2 tight waves and 1/2 loose curls hair with a flat iron. i was looking for my "protein/moisture" balance... and found this product at Kmart when I had some $$$dinero$$$ (now i'm broke. lol. dang economy.). this product made my momma stop what she was doing and say, "dang.. your hair smell good? like coconuts.. what's that?" (we're country). i'm really glad i bought this product.. it makes me feel like im doing something good for my hair. it helps maintain my waves when i wear my hair wavy... and keeps it looking silky when i straighten it. it even makes a nice slick ponytail.
