I understand the frustration about Shea Moisture not having their website up and running, but to their credit, they are producing quality products and are communicating several times daily with their customers. That level of communication isn't done on a website.

Many times a manufacturer will tell you how to use a product and when it doesn't work that way for you, frustration sets in and it is thought the product isn't for you. As for how the products can be used, I like how they leave that up to the consumer. Everyone's hair is different. What may work well as a rinse out on your hair, may work better as a leave in on mine. Use the products as they work best for you.

This thread is teasing me. A because I'm afraid to use most of these products (protein) and B because my Target doesn't even have them lol

I'm thinking that I might be able to use some of the stylers though especially if I stay in too of deep conditioning and get a rich leave-in.

For me, it's not so much that website is not up, but that they have given too much hope about when it will be. Since before December they have been telling us "the website will be up in a few weeks." Why the lie? If its gonna take months say that. If they don't know, they can say that too. It's huge pet peeve of mine.

I'm totally with you on that. I don't know if it's just me, but I HATE Facebook. I neglect mine entirely as it is, and it's one thing for a business to have a Facebook page as a side project, but Facebook is NOT a replacement for a professional website!! Not everybody wants to deal with the now downright impossible to navigate Facebook just to learn how to use a product. Ok, rant over.
Impossible to navigate, really?
If they're aren't going to sell products on their website, than a fb page is all the same to me.

Yup, the last time I actually actively used Facebook was 3+ years ago. It's confusing and I'm not going to create an account and learn how to use it just to check out a product line.

Uh huh not wanting to create a profile is one thing, fair enough, but I don't see the difficulty in going to a link and reading a post. Click comment to comment or write something on their wall. That's it.

But it's not like a website, where you can simply browse through the products. Maybe I'm just Facebook inept (actually I know I am, lol) but I find it difficult to look for specific information. Just my opinion, not a Facebook fan. To each their own

I just washed my hair with the Curl and Shine Shampoo, smoothed the shea conditioner and curl smoothie into my hair, then scrunched in the souffle. My hair is still drying but I'll report back as to how it all works together!

UPDATE: My hair dried very curly and bouncy...my hair is shoulder-length and it somehow feels lighter than it usually does. My curls are defined but not crunchy, which is unheard of for me! The only negative is that I still get frizz in the canopy of my hair (99% of the case I get this). I used a little product to smooth the frizz near my roots, though, and it's fine.

I have spotted the new hair color here in Tallahassee, it's in the regular hair color aisle. But only the red color was there, so I guess the others sold out. I'm waiting for my $10 off Shea Moisture coupon to arrive before I buy the jet black hair color.

One thing it doesn't appear to have is PPD, which is a good +1 to me. I'll double check the black one if I buy it. I did say I'd take a chemical hair color break.

I just had to share this! My daughter used the new co-wash, conditioner and the mousse. This is her twist out.
