I LOOOVVVEE this product!!! Every time I use this deep conditioner, it keeps my hair very moisturized and healthy for my hair regimen. And it also feels so great on my scalp. I love massaging it on my scalp. I would recommend this to anybody who's looking for a deep conditioner.

*sighs* Another Shea moisture product that I had high hopes for but *sighs again* It didn't apply as easily as I'd like and it did NOTHING to help de-tangle my hair. In fact, I think it might've helped it tangle further! My hair was no soft like I like it after deep conditioning. Plus side, my hair was stronger and it smells good. The good doesn't out weight the bad so I will not be repurchasing this.

The best for cowash/deep treatment at the same time.

I've been using this product for about 6-7 months now and love it. I suffer from dry scalp/dandruff/product build up. I use this with the Black Soap shampoo and it works wonders. I usually use it about once or twice a month as a deep conditioner. The instructions say to use for 5 minutes or 30 minutes for a deep treatment. I usually leave it in while I am showering so its longer that 5 minutes but less than 30 minutes and it works great. I notice less itching, flakiness, and build up when I use both products together. I get a deep clean and my hair still feel hydrated. I would definitely recommend this product.

it definitely does what it says it's going to do! it soothes dry, itchy scalp! i don't suffer from dry, itchy scalp chronically so i only pull this out when my scalp tells me to. i use the shampoo & conditioner in conjunction with this so i can't give a testimony about it working by itself or with other products. to me, it smells like banana marshmallows. i like the way it smells. the jar is big enough to get several uses out of it and a little goes a long way.

wow! this dried my hair out so bad! i had to smother it in coconut and olive oil after to detangle the mess this product left me with! ended up giving it away! It did stop my scalp from itching but not worth the birds nest of mess i had to deal with after

At first i used this as a deep con after shampooing and while i found my hair detangles and is nice, light and bouncy, it wasnt very moisturizing. I now use it occasionally as a replacement for shampoo. It leaves my hair really clean and smelling great, but i have to use a deep con after. Its ok but i dont have scalp issues i.e dandruff, eczema, etc, so i dont find the product that useful for me. Great cleanser though for someone who doesnt like to use shampoo. Hair type fine stands, but very dense type 4a/b

I was looking for a product with tea tree oil in it so I tried this masque & it did moisturize my hair but my scalp needs more oil cuz it just gets dry & itchy.

I love this stuff! I have moderate dry flaky scalp especially around my hair line and I swear this product helped to clear that up. It also gave me extra slip which I was not expecting at all and it distributes easily through my hair. This will definitely be added to my staple products.

I use it as a pre poo. I section my hair and spritz my hair with my homemade spritz and detangle. I then apply the purification masque to the section and work it through. I do this over my entire head and leave in for 5 minutes. I rinse it out and my hair and scalp are clean! I don't shampoo or cowash afterwards because it's not necessary for me. I love it. Def a staple

I use this once a week for my itchy scalp. It leaves my hair clean and moisturized. It even smells great!

Before I tried this I was a Terressentials fanatic. I loved that stuff but it was expensive, messy, and time consuming to apply. I wanted to simplify my regimen so I turned to this when I found out there was clay in it, and that I could potentially use it as both a cleanser and a DC. Once a week, I soak my hair with ACV and water and then put this masque over it with a plastic cap. After 30 minutes, my hair is soft, detangled and clean. As a DC by itself, I wasn't really feeling this. My hair was soft but it didn't really feel hydrated, so I use another DC after I cleanse with this. Holy grail!

How many time a week or month do we have to use this product?

This is my Holy Grail Deep conditioner. The first time , i used this with a shower cap, 30 mins and it was AMAZING how smooth, silk, soft my hair was. And as a product junkie that i am, i never found a conditioner who has that effect on my 4 A kinky hair! Can't wait to try it with heat!

This deep conditioner effectively moisturized my hair, but it didn't help with my itchy scalp though.

It really purifies. Glad I bought another jar. Does wonders for my hair.

This is the best. The smell is a little strange but it feels great in my hair and really works.

I absolutely LOVE this yum stuff..my hair says "give me more"! I used this for the first time a two days ago and I just love the results. Pros: It has a "banging" slip, a "pow" in moisture, and the smell literally it still fresh on my hair, EVEN after I added other moisturizers to my hair, it feels sooooo awesome on my hair! Cons: It says it helps with dry and itchy scalp, but I really didn't get to much relief in that area, but I do believe that after a couple applications that it will show positive results! Overall: This is fairly cheap compared to a lot of products that specialize in this area. I say push the buy button, because it is a FAB buy and you won't be disappointed! <3 Blessings

I <3 SM Purification Masque! I use it as a pre-shampoo detangler/deep conditioner for my tightly coiled, Afro-textured hair. It has super duper slip, imparts tons of moisture to my hair and smells like ripe plantains (Yum!). The second ingredient is coconut oil--an oil scientifically proven to penetrate hair strands. This product is the best conditioner I've ever used and is staple in my hair care routine.

I am a porous 4b and my hair loves this stuff. I find it to be the most moisturizing deep conditioners I have ever used, and I have tried a few. I don't really have any scalp issues, but that is what it is marketed for, but in my opinion this is the most moisturizing of all the SheaMoisture Masque's. Apprently others have been made aware of its benefits because it is always out at my local Target and Walgreens. So I resort to ordering it online two at a time.

This stff is the bomb.com!

This stuff is awesome!! At first glance, I didn't think I would like it because I couldn't fathom how such a thin product could possibly supply enough slip to make detangling my thick mane possible. Boy, was I wrong!!! I absolutely love the affect that this conditioner has on my hair. It leaves it super soft...completely aggravating my HIH syndrome. I can't attest to the claims of 'soothing an itchy scalp' because it didn't really do it for me, but I will continue to use it because it is a great conditioner.

I've used all the shea moisture deep conditioners and this one is my fave. It has great slip and it really makes your hair feel sooo soft I love it

This is my favorite deep conditioner hands down! I have yet to use another DC that proves the slip and moisture that this does!!!! This is SM's BEST product (in my opinion of course)! lol
