Haven't tried it, but I do follow her on Youtube. I just don't want to see her great Youtube videos turn into infomercials for her products.

I tried the moisturizing cream, the gel, and the spray. The spray I could definitely do without, seemed like regular old aloe vera to me but I got the free sample size so it's cool that I got a discreet bottle that I can fill with whatever I want and take anywhere. The gel had a pretty strong hold, but was kinda sticky. It really defined my curls and gave em "hang". Its a lot like kccc (which i prefer because its available on ground). I still have more than half of the jar, but only because I figured out that gels just aren't my thing. The moisturizing cream was very moisturizing and I really liked it's frothy texture for some reason. I really wish that I used it in different ways though. I used the whole jar in one day because I was detangling after taking down a sew in. I wouldn't buy any of it again, only because it's nothing ground breaking/super impressive.

Well.. Shida Naturals shows her vids as well as other YTers reviewing the products on her main site, so I guess she's not necessarily an infomercial, but definitely a well posted opinion.

I have the cream detangler. It's actually not bad. Lightweight yet moisturizing, and was nice to use under...I think it was ecostyler.

I actually did a review of all her products and then I did another review when I went to her salon and got my hair done. I really like the moisturizing cream and the curl refresher for my hair. The ingredients are of great quality too.

Check out my reviews on my youtube channel (link below), the videos are called ShidaNaturals product review and IvyCharlaine has been Shidanaturalized. Hope this is helpful

I looked at her products, but she has a few ingredients I don't like.

ok I received my products today.

The moisturizing cream/detangler smells lemony. I like the scent. Its frothy, like whipped cream . It looks to be light.

The Define & Hold Curl Cream smells like a light grapefruit pledge lol. It moves like flax seed gel or gelly does.

Im going to try it out tonight when I get home.

ok so my first thoughts are If youre heavy handed be very careful with the Moisturizer/Detangler. This stuff is so light and airy , its like what I would imagine a cloud feels like. I can see myself going thru this very quick if Im detangling in small sections, however a small amount does cover your head.

It also foam on the hair immediately. After cowashing , I applied it and finger detangled it in. Not bad


The Define and Hold Curl Cream is very light. It reminds me of the old donna marie curling cream that used to be in a jar. Its not as gelly as I thought it was. I think this should have a pump because I was spilling it all over the place due to it moving a lot in the jar. It went on light but now my hair feels heavy.

So far, its looking pretty good. The only gel that holds my hair down and elongates it is Ecostyler,even KCCC doesnt do that, it give me tight curls to my head.

This goes on like flaxseed gel, very light but its curling my hair like KCCC. I have a feeling Im going to like this though. I will upload a picture soon as I take one

ok so usually when I start something new. I like to use just it so I can see how its going to work alone

1. My hair looked like I had boogers in it this morning
2. Rewetting this only made it worse
3 My hair dried crunchy but scrunchable

The Moisturizer/Detangler is the culprit I think, since it foams up I think I should have waited to let it sink in prior to adding the curl cream. Snot like gel on top of foam equals hair boogers


I was pissed this morning , running around trying to get this crap to disappear. I usually do my hair at night because I wake up too early to do it in the morning and have dry hair by the time I get to work.

Tonight Im going to try it again.

I wonder if I can get away with sitting at my desk all day

Yikes, that's concerning since you're more porous. If the formulation was good it should've sunk right in. Sorry to hear.

Hopefully you don't have to leave your desk.

Ivy, from your review on youtube, that made me want to run to her salon and get my hair done.
