SheaMoisture's latest product is packed with natural ingredients for shine, definition and moisture.


When SheaMoisture was developing its new styling product, it wanted to make a product that could create frizz-free, defined curls without chemicals.

"Our new SheaMoisture Curl Defining Gel Soufflé with Agave Nectar & Flax Seed Oil is in line with what women with transitioning and natural curly hair are seeking — a product that promotes healthy hair and defines their natural curls without chemicals," says Richelieu Dennis, Founder and CEO of Sundial Creations, makers of SheaMoisture hair products.

The Souffle contains a unique combination of natural ingredients, and is free of PVC, parabens, sulfates, paraffin, gluten, propylene glycol, mineral oil, synthetic fragrance, mineral oil, synthetic fragrance, PABA, synthetic color, DEA or animal ingredients.

Final Thoughts

SheaMoisture products are available at Target and Walgreen's.


I'm trying it for the first time... it is incredibly sticky... I guess that's the agave nectar? I read other reviews indicating it does cause drying so my 4a/b and 3c hair added grapeseed oil under and over the application. And I need hold so I applied EcoStyler too. My hair LOVES the Argan Oil version. I Will try to remember to tell you how it works after day 1.

I really like SheaMoisture and wanted to love this product, but I don't. It gives me lots of curls but the frizz is just insane! I tried it in different amounts and applications but as soon as I put it on my hair it gets very frizzy, by the time it dries it gets a little better, but I'm disappointed!

I've been using this for a little less than a week since I found it at Target last week. It has replaced the Eco-styler gel I'd been a slave to for hold and shine. This is the first natural gel styler that seems to live up to the hype. Better than Kinky-Curly for me. Consistency is similar to KC, but the results of SheaMoisture's Souffle are better by far since you can use this on wet, damp, and dry hair. It plays nicely with other products....unlike KC. It's another winner for Shea Moisture!
