This gel like textured product is what I use in combination with the Curl Enhancing Smoothie. You can find the Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curling Souffle at most drug stores like CVS and Walgreens and at Walmart and a few other places as well. I started using this product before I tried out the Enhancing Smoothie and I fell in love with this product after the first use. I applied it to my damp hair and worked the product into my ends and towards my roots. I wash my hair about 2-3 times a week and this container (12oz) has lasted me about 6 months because I really just need enough to work into the ends of my hair.
The gel like texture doesn’t make your hair dry or leave it feeling crispy – which I love. And, I’m not sure if it is because of the ingredients in the product, but my hair seems to dry much faster (air dry) when I have this product in my hair. It has a light coconut and hibiscus smell and I love that I can run my fingers through my hair without my fingers or my wide tooth comb getting stuck. This product costs approximately $11.99 and is a pretty great investment considering the amount of product you are getting.
Just like the Curl Enhancing Smoothie, there are no Parabens, Phthalates, Paraffin, Gluten, Propylene Glycol, Mineral Oil and Synthetic Fragrances. And, of course – since it’s a Shea Moisture product, that means they do not test on animals – yay! I have tried a lot of products on my hair, some of my favorite brands include: CatWalk, Sexy Hair, Paul Mitchel, Curls, Moroccan Oil, Macadamia, Parnevu… and the list is always increasing as I am constantly trying new products. But, there is just something about this product and the C.E.S. that I love from Shea Moisture and I especially love that my hair feels light, looks shiny and it not weighed down or feels gritty or dirty. Again – no crunchy and stiff feeling hair and when you look at my hair, you would never know I had product in it. It looks natural and feels and smells great. And, I forgot to mention this, but the products include Shea butter which is what keeps my hair so soft… LOVE IT!
I do suggest switching up your hair products from time to time so that your hair does not develop build up or get used to a certain product. I do know however, that this brand and line of products will be a favorite for years to come.
I will be reviewing my shampoo / conditioner I use as well as other hair products I love and cherish – so stay tuned. For photos of how my hair looks using these products, be sure to check out my review on the Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie.
