I got the milk, and it works so much better on my hair than the smoothie! Definitely because there's no glycerin in it (my hair hates it). There's still a little frizz left, so I'm gonna try curl and shine shampoo and conditioner soon!

I love the SM products! I just ordered more from Walgreens.com and can't wait to try them out. I really like the smoothie and the shine mist (although if I use the shine mist, I have to SOTC). I also like their deep conditioning treatment. I'm excited to try the gel souffle.

By the way, they're on sale at Walgreens right now! Buy one get one 50% off! If you order online, there's an extra code for an additional 14% off too. =)

I would definitely do this, but they don't have the coconut and hibiscus conditioner:/ I've literally been looking everywhere for it and I can't find it!

Ive tried their deep treatment masque, smoothie, and conditioner. Dont care too much for the smoothie but i might use it again in warmer weather. The conditioner is good as a detangler although i left it in a few days ago and braided my hair because i was too lazy to rinse out and apply my cantu. I dont "love" the deep treatment masque (not as good as my Cantu leave in) but i dont hate it either. Ill prob just alternate between the two every week just to use it up.

The Coconut & Hibiscus Cowash? I have. I went straight to that, instead of a shampoo because I have frizz issues and not shampooing seems to help so far (I'm a CG newbie).

I feel like it takes a lot of product to get it throughout my hair, but I like the results.

I tried the new tahitian noni & monoi line this evening. I only got 3 of the 5 products: shampoo, rinse out conditioner, and the nourishing masque. The whole line smells like a mix of musk & chemicals. Its a light scent, definitely not floral, or shea smelling. I can only describe it as earthy/chemical-ly/musk smell.

The shampoo lathered up very quickly and removed the kinky curly curling custard I had applied earlier today. It tangled my hair very badly.

The rinse out conditioner instantly detangled what the shampoo had caused. It was light, creamy, and did a good job of returning lost moisture.

The treatment masque was alright. It didnt feel amazing after i rinsed it out. I slept overnight with it. Honestly left like i put in a v05 conditioner....nothing crazy.

I tried it before i straightened and my straight hair wasnt any better than it usually is. so far, this line isn't anything amazing for me.

I'm with you on the not so natural aspect. I bought it yesterday and tried it out last night. The shampoo, conditioner, and weekly therapy. The weekly therapy leaves a nasty film that won't seem to come out with the matching shampoo. I ended up sulfate washing it out. Not a fan of that. While I absolutely LOVE the smell of this stuff, it didn't do much for my curls. I was hoping the keratin would do wonders, because my hair loves it. Sadly, I might return... or maybe just use the shampoo as a body wash. It does have a cooling feeling on the scalp which I like. My boyfriend wanted to jump me because my hair smelled so good lol

I love their moisture retention shampoo and conditioner (yellow label). My favourite! I personally like the smell a lot, but others don't, so make sure to give it a sniff before you buy.

I tried a few products from them, and I felt like the CES and milk would just sit on top of my hair. They even left white flakes all in my hair. Maybe I was using too much!
