So the Coconut and Hibiscus line = AMAZING! I tried their Moisture Retention line before and absolutely hated it. The Shampoo left my hair dry, and the Masque left my curls completely flat. I was so curious about this line, but super scared to spend the money to try it. At least Target refunds products, which I've had to do many a time before, so that was my only comfort.

I had purchased the Curl & Style Milk, along with the Souffle a long time ago. There was something I just didn't like about them, so ended up returning them both. I ended up purchasing the milk again later, and liked it! So then BotticelliBrit was all over the place on here recommending the shampoo, so of course I totally broke down and bought it. While I was there I picked up the Smoothie as well, thinking it was going to be wayyyy too heavy for my LP hair.

So - a note about the shampoo. Not only does it leave my hair suuuuuper soft, it leaves my face very soft as well! Yes folks, this is my new face wash! It is A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. Try it out!

The smoothie - I love it a lot better than the milk! I haven't even been leaving in my RO anymore, and my hair has never felt better with this product in. It may elongate my curls just a tad, in the underlayer where it doesn't curl so much anyway - but that's alright with me if I can trade it for hair that's not dry! I'm thinking I need to find a styler with this to help out a bit, but I really disliked the Soufflé.

I found the conditioner online, but it's not sold in any of the stores around here. Bummer! That will definitely end up being my next purchase for winter product.

Great...you all are making me want to purchase this for the 3rd time. Honestly, I don't think I gave it a fair try the other two times I purchased. I just didn't know when to use it or how..Looks like I'll be making a trip to the store.

I use a pea sized amount on the ends of my hair before stylers and it's made a big difference. Half that rubbed to make my hands shiny to scrunch out. Sometimes the same if I've combed out my waves (shhh) in second say refines it.

I like the Smoothie from the C&H line, hated the shampoo but most of my other products are from the SM Raw Moisture Retention line:-) I might have to try them as a face wash, I never even thought to use it on my face!

I really want to try the milk! It's the next on my "to buy" list. So far I've only tried the shampoo and the Hold and Shine mist. Love the shampoo, but I hated the mist. It dries extremely sticky.

Yeah, I don't have to use a lot of of the milk or the smoothie, they are going to last me forever!!

This is the first time I've gotten 3rd day hair without my hair feeling completely gunky and dry. It's well hydrated, super soft, shiny, and just all around amazing! Last night I made my boyfriend touch my hair like 5 times lol. I can't stop running my fingers over it, it feels soooo good! Needless to say my hair was a frizzy poofy mess last night, but refreshed this morning using the milk in a spray bottle, the smoothie on top, and my hair has minimal frizz!

So I tried the milk yesterday. Left in a lot of suave coconut conditioner and plopped. Then I applied about a quarter size of the milk to each half of my hair and sealed with a butter. I diffused partially and then air dried. I will have to say that I am very happy with my results. I had soft and shiny hair and today was a very good day as well. I had no crunch and my hair felt very light and like I didn't have any product in it. I got a lot of volume too. I'm really surprised at how well it worked for my hair. I still can't believe it and I didn't use gel. I love the way it smells . So I will definitely be using this regularly. I was getting a little tired of the producty feel with a couple of my gels so this was a very nice change. I don't know how it will work in the summer but if it works all winter for me, I will be very pleased.
I will continue to use it and hope I don't end up getting over conditioned. Next, the smoothie.....

I have a hard time with build up from this line.. even though I love using them. They do amazing on the first wash but second/third day hair is very weighed down so I seldom ever reach for them. I wanted to mention their body wash for those using the shampoo as face wash etc. I started with the baby version and loved it.. then bought the C&H body wash and it's even better. Way more moisturizing. I don't see why you could not use the shampoo though, the bottles are the same price/size and I used shampoo for years as body wash before I went CG because I found it so much more moisturizing as well as less expensive (I used Suave almond and shea butter in the big pump bottles). I also used the conditioner as shave cream. Now I am trying to cut the sulfates out of all my products if possible.

Yeah, it can build up on some after a while. I can only use these products in the winter. I low poo once a week or every two weeks or I'll start getting weighed down a bit. I use YTCucs to do this, works great.

I love the SM Coconut and Hibiscus line! The SMCES is a must have styler for me. I use the Curl and Style Milk as a LI. I recently started using the C&S Conditioner and I think I like it, I typically use it as a cowash or after I use it with the Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo (which I'm not sure I really love, but I use it so rarely that I'm not sure when I'll run out so I can try something new). I hate the Gel Souffle, it leaves my hair feeling sticky and weird....it does nothing for me.

I recently purchased the Deep Treatment Masque which I have yet to try as well as the Elixir. I want to try the Tahitian Noni & Monoi line.
