Mar 15, 2012 - I wish I had this at the start of my natural journey. I am willing to try different products, but I always come back. I don't like this product in the winter for wash n' go's, but now that spring is back, OH MY GOODNESS!!! This product does not provide hold, none! So, if that is what you want your curls to remain springy looking then this product is not for you. I love big hair and I am guessing because of the glycerin, when the dew points are high my hair swells and I love it. I get this big hair with so much movement and it so soft. If you don't like shrinkage, this is also not for you. My hair curly is about ear lobe length, but straight it almost armpit length, however, as the days go by because I can get 3 day hair with Shea, it gets longer. Again, if you are looking for that springy curly look you will not get this with Shea, it will start out that way, but as day warms and their is moisture in the air your hair will grow massive. Also the price is right and they are forever having BOGO's for the product.
