Sep 07, 2015 - I live in Switzerland and so far i used to harder my products sometimes from the States which costed me fortunes. Finally my african shop next to my home, sells Shea Moisture what a change it was for my hair. I bought it because i needed a daily leave in for moisture, and couldn't fin anything else whitout having major problem of dryness and tangles. This product has retain&maintain my (3B-4A type) of hair and finally i saw little curls appearing and i can be more comfortable about wearing a looser style. I usually spritz with water then use a finger for left&right sides then seal with monoi oil. My hair is less tangled and frizzy, now it's soft and moisturized. The only downside is not having this product in a pump bottle, i have to use my finger and so it's less economic&hygienic. And everybody likes the smell of it. Also Oyin Handmade Hair Dew is a winning product, but unfortunately they don't ship anymore in Europe.

Jan 05, 2015 - I bought it a year ago thinking it was a moisturizing gel for defining curls and i was really suprise by the slimy texture. I tried it with different leave-ins then a butter/cream or oil but it was always sticky and ended dry. I read a lot of comments on how to use it and finally bought from Zurich (i live in Switzerland and it's hard finding good hair products) the Shea moisture restorative conditioner which is a life-saver for softness, moisture and detangling. I usually spray with water, then either mix equal small parts of the conditioner with the gel or layer the conditioner then olive oil and the gel. I've noticed that when i immediately braid my hair afterwards it gives a nice define look and moisturize hair. But it is definitely tricky to use it.
Nov 23, 2014 - i wanted to try shea moisture products but could'nt find any in Switzerland so i ordered on britishcurlies the curl gel soufflé which is very sticky and weird. Finally i found a place in Zurich selling SM, i hesitated with the restorative detangler leave-in but chose this one because of the bigger size. First two days my hair came back to life, curls appearing and incredible softness. it is such a life saver now, and it blends well with the curl gel soufflé. i haven't tried it as a conditioner yet, it moisturize well whitout a greesy feeling and detangling is much better.
