I love shea moisture products. It's predominantly what I've used since my bc.
I use the coconut and hibiscus hold and shine moisture mist as a refresher. I dilute it with aloe vera juice, vegetable glycerin, and water to make it last longer. I leave out glycerin when it's cold. It retains the original scent when diluted. I'm really addicted to this and have been using it since my bc last year.
I've tried the coconut and hibiscus shampoo. It smells nice, but I prefer the moisture retention shampoo. The moisture retention shampoo left my hair feeling moisturized and I could still get my hands through my hair with the shampoo in.
I use the curl enhancing smoothie as a styling aid/moisturizer followed by a little oil, then ORS lock & twist gel. I love this combo. My hair is moisturized and soft for days without reapplying.
The curl and style milk I reserve for wash & gos. It's moisturizing and love the scent.
I use the deep treatment masque as a dc occasionally but most often as a styling aid.
I like the restorative conditioner as a leave in. I prefer a more liquidy rinse out conditioner so that I can detangle. This is really thick and not enough pumps out for me to thoroughly apply while in shower.
The reconstructive elixir is amazing, but I mix my own oils now because that's more cost effective.
The scalp spray really alleviated my dry scalp issues. Never had a problem when using it.
I used the purification masque the day after my henna treatment. I also have been in the pool a lot lately. This product restored softness and moisture to my hair.
The original shea moisture leave in is also great. It has a similar consistency to the curl enhancing smoothie. I use it as leave in or in place of the smoothie when I'm out of it.
I have the anti-breakage masque and thickening milk but have not tried them yet.
