SheaMoisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie

Apr 30, 2014 - This product is one of my epic product failures and probably the worst. I bought this product because of all of the hype and raves surrounding it. I have heard nothing but good things about this stuff from curlies of all textures. Be it in person, on Youtube, or on one of the many curly hair blogs and websites. Nothing but good to say. So I decided to go out and buy some. It's fairly affordable and can be found in most, if not all, major stores and since my then current leave-in had became discontinued I decided to give it try. Bad idea. A lot went wrong with this product for me. Firstly the smell was too strong and awful. I'm fairly sensitive to smells so the scent was a huge no go for me. The next issue was that it did not curl my hair at all. It only made it really poofy, frizzy, and did not leave or give me a curl in site. By the time I would apply this stuff to my whole head, my hair would be virtually bone straight and curls that I did have would be gone. The last and most problematic thing for me concerning this product was that it took all of the moisture out of my hair. Even when I got in the shower and completely soak my hair and then applied this product, my hair would be dessert dry within 15 minutes. I really hate that this product did not work out for me. I really wanted to like it and make it work. Alas, it just was not meant to be. I tried just about everything I could possibly try to get this stuff to work. I tried using the LOC method, the LCO method, I tried using it alone on my hair, I tried using other products in combination with it, I've tried doing twist outs and braid outs with it, and I tried using it on both wet and dry hair and none of it worked. My hair just hates this stuff for whatever reason.

Apr 29, 2014 - I've been using this product for about 3 months now and I like it! It's light and when used by itself it does not weigh my hair down. It leaves my hair temporarily moisturized and my curls are always super defined. However there are some things that I do not like about it. The number one thing is the smell. I'm a huge stickler when it comes to smells. I either love it or hate it. With this... I hate it. It has a pineapple fruity kind of smell. It's really strong to me. Too strong to me. I makes me sort of queezy just smelling it while I am applying it to my hair. Thankfully, it does not linger. The second problem that I have with this product is that the moisture does not last very long on my hair. Even if I use the LCO method, which I always do, it still never lasts more than several hours. Even then I have to use another product over it to make it last that long and since my hair is easily weighed down, and gets build up easily, all together, that is just too much product on my hair. Overall, I really like this product but, I do not think I will continue to use it. The search begins for something new.
