Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Absolutely Amazing Product I knew from others that African Black Soap has an amazing hygiene product, but Shea Moisture took it to the next level. Truly, this product leaves my hair soft and silky! Whenever I am too lazy to do my entire wash day routine, I can grab this product knowing for sure that it will clarify, restore, and moisturize my hair (especially when I use my hot cap to warm it for 30 minutes). This product is like a gentle shampoo, restoring conditioner, and hydrating deep condition all in one, so it is definitely worth it!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The Formula Has Been Changed! I purchased this product some years ago when it first was introduced to the Beauty Supply World. It was an excellent product, thick, rich and did what it was suppose to do. Recently I purchased it again, it was very watery and not rich and thick and it never did what the old formula did for my hair. Very disappointed and will never purchase again. When a product is great and customers are using and purchasing over and over that means the formula is working for those using and should not be changed or compromised. In today's society everyone is about making "money" at whatever costs!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ol' Reliable Like I've done with the bamboo charcoal version of this product, I can use this as an extremely potent conditioning co-wash. It works so well that I only shampoo once every other week or as needed, providing I work it through my hair and scrub my scalp like I would with a shampoo! This is a must for fine, dry, curly hair, or if you just need some moisture in addition to soothing your scalp! Even after the alleged recipe change some of these reviews mention, I still find this product fantastic, effective, and reliable. And seriously, if you do use this as a co-wash like me, you wont even need to worry about any build-up (providing you massage it in properly)!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Angry! YOU CHANGED THE INGREDIENTS! I've used this product for years. Typically, I buy 4 containers at a time because I can only find this online. The color is different. I compared the ingredients to an old tub and noticed a different product. This is closer to the other "black" label that you can find in stores. WHY DID YOU CHANGE THE FORMULA? This no longer works in my hair. I gave away the rest of my purchase. Why did you need to change ANYTHING about this? Ridiculous...

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Buyer Beware - ingredient change!! Not as shown! I guess I'm another Shea customer biting the dust. I didn't notice the change until I put in my hair and it went crunch, crunch! Alcohol is listed twice in the first 4 ingredients. It's no longer water, coconut oil, Shea butter instead aloe, water, alcohol, coconut oil, alcohol, glycerin, Shea butter... I already know it won't work, not with aloe and alcohol listed as the first 3 ingredients.I bought it for my flare ups and IT WORKED! Calmed my scalp and moisturized my hair. Why change something that worked? I guess we don't pack a big enough economic punch for our well-being to matter. Such a shame. This was my last straw, I figured you wouldn't change a formula that was practically therapeutic but I guess I was wrong. And to keep the packaging the same! Shame. I'm sending everything back and giving away or trashing what I can't. See you later Shea!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE! I have recently started using hair masks as I have itcy, dry scalp but no dandruff. After using plain coconut oil for about 6 months without the desired results, I decided to try this hair mask. I LOVE it! I started using it once a week in the winter and immediately saw results. There was less itching and flaking. Now I use it weekly during the summer as there is increased oil in my hair. It is truly a great product!

Does this mask still contain clay? I can't find it on the ingredients list anymore. If it doesn't, do any of your other deep conditioners contain this ingredient?

From the ingredients it looks like there is no longer any clay in this mask. Is this the case? I primarily enjoyed this product as a clay based treatment so I wouldn't repurchase if this is the new formulation.

Asked by: FI Fi
This is not true. We use White Kaolin Clay, rather than Vulcanus (Kaolin) Clay. The product performance is the same but the color may vary from off white/gray to dark gray.

I just bought a new jar and its a completely different texture and colour to what I'm used to. It used to be light grey, like clay and slightly runny. This one is cream in colour and creamy texture and thick. Did I buy a fake?

Asked by: Victoria
Color and consistency may vary due to natural and organic ingredients.

Can I use this as a shampoo (only on my scalp not on my ends) if i only wash my hair every 5 or 6 days? I found it really helped with my dandruff.

Asked by: Mel27
Hi Mel27, Our Masques are deep conditioners and aren't cleansers like shampoos. But if it works for you, continue to use as it comes down to personal preference.
