so now I have both. Used the Coconut Hibiscus this AM, and really liked it. Honestly, I just love these shampoos. They have made a huge difference in my hair. I also like who they are as a company.

Is this good for:
2c/3a hair that's also color-treated?
Thanks!

I just love their products, if they didn't have aloe in the shampoos I would to try them.
Caramix, yes, my hair is 3A and color treated. Try them, you wont be sorry.
Glad you like it, Myrna! Gotta ask, do you find the coconut hibiscus a little lighter than the moisture retention or is it just my imagination?
3B, fine, normal to low porosity
Modified CG since June 2010
HGs: FSG, anything with glycerin, Tresemme Naturals conditioner, Curls Like Us cloths, satin pillowcases.
Hard to say. The last 2 days I used the CH. tomorrow I will use the MR. I'll see if I can tell a difference - so far, I would say no.
Still hard to say what the diff is between the 2; but today, using the Moisture Retention, my hair is VERY full. But, since I got the Curly Hair Solutions roller jaw clips, I have not had a bad hair day. I think this item (the clips) belongs under the "gushing" thread...

I use the moisture retention but put a little distilled water in to dilute it. Only shampoo that doesn't leave my hair like straw!!

This shampoo wasnt a good fit for my hair but I just wanted to say I hope people read this thread and stop buying into the silly marketing propaganda about white, ethnic, and mixed hair. The SM labels tell the story of how all this started with a widow in Africa trying to support her kids. Im black and my hair doesnt like this shampoo and here are a lot of white ladies who love it. Dont let people who say that "it is not for your kind of hair" stop you from trying a product if the ingredients look like they might suit your hair.

Ad, you make really good points. And, I was one of those people who thought that the SM shampoo would be to "heavy" for my hair. It turns out to be the best choice for me as someone who is mostly CG but I shampoo, and daily.

I could not tell from your post, however, if you think the story on the label is clever marketing, or the real deal...

I have no reason to disbelieve the story. I was trying to say just because this line was started by a black woman in Africa doesn't mean it can't work well for people who aren't black or that it will work well for every black person. I've had people tell me only to use "black" products and I'm glad I didn't listen. I'm encouraging people not to let the "ethnic" and "biracial" marketing keep them from discovering products that may work well for their hair.

Ah, Yes. Fortunately, a salesperson in Walgreens told me about the SM line and that it was for all sorts of curly hair types.
