Default SheaMoisture Curl and Shine

I'm switching to this product line b/c it's wheat free and I'm horribly sensitive to wheat products (I'm finding out after 2 years!) but the Curl and Shine? Is it sulfate-free? It doesn't say so.

So weird that it wouldn't say that on the bottle. Do you use this line? I just bought a lot of the products b/c they are all wheat free and seem great on my hair. Open to suggestions for use -

It doesn't say that it's sulfate free in bold but it's on the side of the bottle in a long list of other stuff it doesn't have in it. I use the whole curl and shine line and I love it

Yes, I use this line. The souffle is one of my Holy Grails.

Cool! I'm excited about this stuff!

Does it have any proteins in it? Should I be careful around OCing?

So can the protein be too much? Or does it balance everything out? My hair likes protein. These products seem great!

I'm also intrigued by this line, especially since CVS has a BOGO on Shea Moisture starting Sunday 9/2!

For anyone who has used both, how does the SM Curl and Shine shampoo compare to SM Curl Control version?

TIA!

When I use the soufflé as well everything stays in balance because it lacks protein and has a humectant base. I live in an extremely humid area so I never experience protein overload.

There's also a 20 or 25% off Extracare coupon floating around this weekend! Be sure to check your card when you go, if you don't get the emails.

Also - am I correct in thinking there's no Curl and Shine rinse out condish? I see the shampoo, but the only conditioning product is Shea Moisture Organic Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Style Milk. The others have regular rinse outs.

Wow, this gets even better - they sell this at CVS??? I just spent $40-something on a bunch at Target, but now I know!

Which is the curl and shine? The dark orange label?

Also, I had a sample of Curl enhancing smoothie and Loved it but couldn't find it on the shelf and bought something called Coconut and Hibisicus Curl and Style Milk (are they the same though?)

Yossarian, where'd you see this? Nothing in my CVS's weekly ad about it.

I LOVE SM product so this would be huge for me!

I get the "sneak peek" through Upromise (college savings program).

ETA: the upcoming weekly ad is now available on the CVS website. Go crazy, girls! : )

Only problem with the Extracare coupon is that excludes sale items. I wish they didn't do that.

Awww, yeah! I see the ad now. Yay!! Since I'm fast running through all my SM condishes and this is an incredible deal, I'm not ashamed to fall off the wagon to clear the stock at CVS!!

Thanks, Yossarian!!

Would it be possible to use just the curl and style milk alone with no mousse or gel?
