To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Definitely not suitable for fine hair, no matter how little you use. It made my hair look like it needed to be washed. My friend who has thick curly hair loves this product so don't let me put you off if you have the right hair for this product.
I am extremely infuriated by Shea Moisture and Amazon,
I was a regular purchaser and supporter of this particular Shea Moisture product because of it's 95% organic ingredients BUT NOW I will no longer be purchasing this product (or any other) because the company has CHANGED ingredients (formula) it doesn't even have Hibiscus in it anymore!
They're using chemicals (Centrimonium chlorid, sodium laurel hydrolysed silk, glycerols etc.) and cheaper ingredients (e.g. carrot seed oil, neem oil) fake fragrances (perfume) and NO HIBISCUS IN IT WHATSOEVER!
Once I discovered the ingredients were vastly different from the old container of this I got (6 months prior), I looked up online to see what had happened to this company. Which brings me to another reason why I will no longer be using, purchasing or recommending Shea Moisture to my friends - they were bought out by another company that is now using women with STRAIGHT hair (with majority 98% white women and one women with 'curly hair' who is mixed) as those they are marketing to VERSUS the women and girls with natural curly hair - who majority are black, and afro-latina women with ACTUAL CURLY HAIR.
I'm extremely disappointed but not surprised by this, it happens all the time but I'm just infuriated and equally deeply saddened that every time there's a product available for women and girls with curly hair (mainly black women and mixed raced women with curly hair) the former owners sell out and the product becomes about money and less about providing a product that actually allows curly haired women to keep their hair healthy with a combination of organic natural ingredients.
The NEW INGREDIENTS container of Curl Enhancing Smoothie by Shea Moisture I got off Amazon are (in order as written on product label):
- Water (aqua) - Glycerin (Vegetable) - Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter) ** which is identified as the ONLY Certified Organic & Fair Trade ingredient - Centrimonium Chloride - Cetearyl Alcohol - Gylceryl Sterate Citrate - Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, - Cetyl Alcohol - Fragrance (Parfum) - Clyceryl Caprylate - Macadamia Ternifolia Seed Oil - Sodium Lauroyl Hydrolized Silk - Mangifera India (Mango) Seed Butter - Panthenol - Melia Azadirachta Seed Oil * had to look this one up and it's Neem seed oil) - Daucus Carota Sativa (Carrot) Seed Oil Tocopherol - Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice - Glycerel Undecylenate - Potassium Hydroxide - Cirtric Acid - Benzyl Benzoate
The ingredients are different from what shown in the picture... Just compare it with the photo I attached. Some substances are different (more chemicals), some are not marked as "certified organic" anymore (for example the coconut oil), and many of the good natural ingredients are now in lower order in the list (indicating that their amount is reduced). I am NOT happy about this at all... This is CHEATING, to promote something but sell something else, and with the same price...
Take care who you buy this from, I bought it from Amazon eu S.a.r.L and it was discoloured and gunky and not nice in my hair! It should be white and creamy and control frizz with a bit of a shine. It’s a good product but not when it’s turned to gunk!
Diese Lockemcreme funktioniert perfekt für meine Haare, ich bin wirklich sehr zufrieden! Nachdem ich viele Produkte ausprobiert habe, inklusive mehrere von den sehr gehypten Marke Devacurl, ist das definitiv mein Favorit. Um das beste Ergebnis zu erzielen, sollte man die Haare in Sektionen abtrennen und das Produkt darin gut verteilen, genau wie auf der Packung beschrieben. Geruch ist sehr angenehm und leicht fruchtig. Ich bin gespannt, weitere Produkte von der Marke auszuprobieren.
