    This product leaves my hair moisturized when I use it in the lock method and twist-outs. It can be used as a daily moisturiser.

    Gotta give an A+ to my #1 favorite natural hair care product from my favorite hair care line, the Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus/Curl & Shine collection. It is sooo very moisturizing, defines curls excellently, a little goes an extremely long way, and it works well with others (lol)!!!!

    This product has been great so far. I use Aloe Vera Juice to moisturize my hair, and this is an excellent counter balance because the Aloe Vera tends to dry out my hair. However, I don't want to stop using it because it has helped my hair grow extremely well and fast.
    When I use this product as the Cream in my LOC method, my hair is left moisturized and soft. I can also get away with not moisturizing my hair for a few days using this product. I think I found a new HG product. love it.

    I have very fine 2c/3a hair that is weighed down very easily. This product works alright for me when used very sparingly to add moisture and control frizz. For my hair I probably wouldn't buy it again. For my 4a/4b biracial little brother, on the other hand, this product works wonders. His hair seems to soak it up and his hair has never been so soft and moisturized. I use this and some coconut oil on his hair and it really softens it and makes his curls pop. He is only 3 yrs old but he loves this stuff and begs me to put it on his hair. Since I've been using this stuff on him his mom has decided to let him grow his fro out because she can finally keep it conditioned. Even though this product was just "ehh" for me, this product is amazing on other hair types.

    Despite other reviews, I love this product. Yes, it's heavy, but a little bit goes a LONG way. Since it's summer, I follow the LCO method and this is my favorite cream. My hair is shiny, moisturized, and my curls still look amazing after 4 and sometimes 5 days, without the need to reapply or refresh with other products. I haven't used this as a stand alone, but when I do the LOC or LCO method, I use the styling milk and JBCO along with this product.

    To be real, I hate this product. I used to run it through my hair after I washed my hair at night. I'd put my hair in a braid and then leave it overnight. When I woke up, I smelled NASTY AND HORRIFICAL. I took out my braid and my hair was weighed down and tangly. Even my mom said I smelled, so of course I felt horrible and washed my hair again just to get the smell off. I decided to mix it with my coconut oil. I took a glob out of the tub (of newly mixed coconut oil and this nasty product) and put it in my hair after it was again washed. It wasn't any better, honestly. This is a pretty bad product.

    Way too heavy for my hair! I tried it a few times, different ways and it just didn't work for me it left my hair stick and weighted down and instead of defined curls my usual ringlets turned into what looked like a bad 90's crimping iron job saturated in goop! Having said that it could just be my type of hair, I could see it working well on others with coarser hair.

    As somebody else mentioned, I was also excited about using this product..especially after finally getting rid of the rest of my relaxed ends. However, I was extremely disappointed. This doesn't do well (on my hair) with controlling frizz, minimizing shrinkage, & humidity. I now live in Georgia and it is always humid, even after it rains and the last thing I need is frizz!! Even when I was doing my twists (yes, I sealed with JBCO) I noticed the frizz. The next day, my twist out looked a mess..frizzy and shrunk. I had to constantly fluff up my hair. Love the texture of it, I didn't use a lot (as I try not to with new products) but won't and haven't used again. Completely switched to Cantu

    This product is amazing. I use this product for my twist-outs and it works wonders. My hair had some shine for the first time. I have mixed hair so it is hard for me to find products that work in my hair type, but this product really works. Plus it smells amazing which is another added bonus!

    I have very long type 3b hair. This product is too heavy for me and must be diluted with water before I can spread it throughout my hair. It left my hair feeling weighed down. Seems more suited for kinky curls to me.

    I've never used this alone, as I apply it AFTER I touch of Shea Moisture Curl and Style Milk. I think it adds that softness and shine a bit more than the milk because the focus of the curl and style milk is to give more curl than anything. Great as a combo however on a clean head, free of any other products.

    Love it! I use this for my cream in my LOC method, for twist outs and braid outs, and also for wash and go's. This is amazing and i totally recommend this. I can get my 4c curls really defined when i use this this use my denman brush. It works best on 98% dry hair.

    I tried this on my 3a/fine curly hair and was impressed as to how much it enhanced my curls. Because my hair is fine I only used a dime size and it worked. This even gave me 3rd day hair!

    Posted by BeautyThorned (Type Unknown) on 07/07/2014

    I just recently started using this but what a difference it has made! My hair is 2B-2C and it is low/medium porosity. At first, I used this on damp hair as the jar suggested and the results were not very impressive. I decided to put it on my hair when it was dry and that worked much better. I've been using it every morning after I brush my hair. I will put this on from about halfway down the length of my hair to the tips. I then twist my hair up in a bun and go about my housework. When I let my hair down a few hours later, it is silky smooth and so soft. I absolutely love the fragrance too! My hair does not feel greasy, crunchy or "producty". It just absorbs and makes my hair feel really soft. My curls and waves are not really more defined looking but they are very smooth!

    One of my staple products! Smells amazing and moisturizes my hair x10! It's amazing for twistouts and I also accompany it with my leave in sometimes. I use it about every other day at the least (because I have very dry hair).

    This is my all time favourite product. I have been using this since I big chopped last year and it has never let me down all the way through my growth. I wish this was sold in the UK. Shipping costs a fortune but until they do sell it in the UK, I will still buy this online!! I have 3C Curls (Dyed Blonde)

    I'm using this in combo with Suave's captivating curls to get the results I want. It's not bad - if I get to add the amounts correctly and diffuse my hair gently, I get some good curls.

    I loove this product!!! I just bought this yesterday because it was highly recommended. My hair is a little damaged due to all the dyeing but this product really gives it moisture, bounce, softness & pretty much all I look for in a creme. I have used many different creme products like garnier, CURLS, Beyond the Zone, One 'n only curl creme & this so far is the best I've tried. I have 3a/3b curls this product really does enhance my curls. It doesn't weigh my hair down & it smells really good. My curls remain frizz free even after tossing & turning over night. This product leaves my hair soft to the touch.

    I am on the line with this product. I have not used it on my twist out style but used it as a sealer for my ends. I used the Beautiful Textures Moisture Butter as I twisted my hair then added this as a sealer. It seemed to have worked ok, but there was a difference in the amount of moisture on my ends compared to the other parts of my hair. I gave this product a 3 because of the ends did seem a little dry, however they were very curly.

    My hair is very fine 3a and I wanted to like this product but just couldn't. It consistently weighed down my curls leaving my hair limp and very sticky. It did give my curls a little extra definition and helped turn some pieces that like to be more 2b/2c into 3a curls so it wasn't all bad. I just really couldn't get past the sticky feeling. Also, as someone else said, if you're sensitive to smells just know that while this smells good it is very strong..

    I was super excited to try this product as I swear by the SheaMoisture Curl & Style Milk, however the curl enhancing smoothie left my hair dry and limp. The only reason I gave it a rating of 2 is because it did give me tighter, defined curls but they were very dry and in need of moisture.

    I just bought this curl enchanting smoothie yesterday from target because they had all she's moisture products on sale. This was the only bottle of the CES they had left. And I gues I got lucky. As I applied this to my hair for Bantu knots this morning I hated the texture. I just knew it was going to leave my hair dry and flaky but as the day is going on my hair is super soft and my roots are super curly. I cowshed my hair with carols daughter cleaning conditioner, which is my HG product. Then I dried my hair with a tshirt, sectioned my hair and began to apply the sheamoisture curl and style milk. Then I applied the curl enchanting smoothie all over and then began to part my hair and apply in smaller sections as I Bantu knotted it. I haven't taken them down yet but as I feel them they are very soft. Can't wait to see the results.

    Amazing! It really defines your curls and keeps them from going limp ours after you apply it. The smell is delicious but can be a little strong. So if you have very thick hair and need to use a lot of the product be mindful that the smell is strong and those sensitive to sweet smells may feel a little overwhelmed. But I personally like the scent and think the results are worth the smell. This is a product I've been looking for ever since I started taking care of my curls. Definitely worth the purchase!

    Posted by ringlettes (Type 3b) on 05/19/2014

    This is an average product. I have 3b/c texture, it gave me no definition without applying gel on top of it. It's a little thick, but I do like the texture and that it is all natural. My biggest problem with it is it leaves my hair frizzy and puffy. It did moisturize my hair a little, but not for more than a few hours. It also doesn't work on dry hair at all. I gave it three curls because I like the ingredients. There are much better products out there though.

    Posted by melodywithin (Type Unknown) on 05/01/2014

    I like this product so much! All of the local stores are out and not restocking, and that makes me sad because the price was a noticeable difference in comparison to buying online *and* paying for shipping. I like the scent of this product, and I like how it coats. I do have to be careful with how much I use because if I'm too heavy-handed, then it will make my hair greasy. It's not strong enough to tame my frizz in the humid summers here, but this will be in my winter LOC method for sure. What I also like about this product is that whenever I next wash after using it, I don't have to use any conditioner or detangler to comb through my hair. The product retains enough slip that it makes detangling on wash day a breeze. I would not say it gives curl definition for my hair, really, but it does wonderfully at taming frizz. (3A/3B combo)

    Posted by maxinquaye (Type 3c) on 04/30/2014

    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.

    This is absolutely my favorite Shea Moisture product so far. It really is a curl enhancing smoothie, and I love to use it for my twist outs on damp or dry hair. It's really thick and moisturizing on my dry 4c type hair. I love this and As I Am's DoubleButter for my twist/braid outs.

    Posted by curlymixedghana (Type 3b) on 04/16/2014

    I am trying to decide if this is my HG product or not. The reason I give it a 3 is because I found it very difficult to know how much to use. I have thick shoulder length 3b hair. This was my first time using the product and I think I made the same error as others with my hair type (by putting it on soaking wet). Perhaps if I put it on damp it would have dried a lot quick. It took AGES to dry. I had to eventually give up and diffuse it on a cold heat. However the end result was fabulous. I have volume and bounce and no frizz. The only other con is the middle of my head at the roots is not as curly. I think on my next wash I will use my keracare leave in conditioner as a base to provide that extra hold and root lift.

    Posted by curlsrock157 (Type 3a) on 04/08/2014

    When I first began using this product, I was going through a transitional stage with my hair and I absolutely LOVED this product. I used a little amount on my hair and it made my curls really shiny and, for the first time, I had bouncy curls! After several months of use, however, my hair became really dry and my strands appeared to have a rope-like feel to them. That's when I found out that my hair was "protein-sensitive". If your hair likes protein, then this is one of the best products for moisturizing and defining your curls (though you may need an extra product to really hold your curls if you have thick hair). However, if you're hair is anything like mine (I have 2c/3a curls and it's protein-sensitive), then you may want to stay away from this product because over time, your hair will just be overloaded with protein, which, of course, will result in a straw-like and dry appearance.

    smells heavenly and really does enhance the curl but I personally dislike the feeling of it in my hair. Feels like I have something yucky in it. Don't use it for that reason but women with type 4 hair may really like it.

    I've had my jar for a while and this does nothing but make my hair feel dry. My hair just can't stand this product. I've given this more than 6 tries and nothing has worked including adding oils to give it a boost. It doesn't define or even moisturize well on my hair, it's just something that just sits on it. I do have to say I love the fragrance but that's it.

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE this product. I use it with the gel and do finger twist in the shower as part of my AM routine. I use it instead of conditioner as part of my L.O.C routine. My twist will stay in for days and I will just refresh it with water and a spray oil and touch up spots with the Smoothie. I have to wash my hair before they start to become locs. AWESOME PRODUCT!

    I purchased this product on the ground and its ok. One thing I can say is its a good idea to stir the product up in the jar after purchase. The consistency is a bit stiff initially but once you whip it up it turns in to a nice creamy butter

    This is a thick, creamy product. I have 2B hair (low porosity, high density, medium width), and I like the fact that it holds my curls. I had virtually no frizz after using it, and my waves were very defined. However, it is very easy to use too much, making hair feel "producty." As long as you use it sparingly, it will do its job. Smells great, just like the rest of the line!

    I LOVE this product. It's an excellent moisturizer that is perfect for protective styles such as bantu knots and braid outs. Note: It does not provide hold at all. It smells wonderful and a little goes a long way. I also love the coconut milk which works better on my natural curls. I have 3b, 3c thin fine hair and this does not weigh it down at all. I recommend both products for thin haired ladies.

    I have a love/hate relationship with this... I love the smell and the defined curls I get when i first apply it. But when it dries I lack the luster and shine. It turns ashy on my hair (3b/3c black hair)
    but however...my 15 yr old son is natural and has my hair type as well and it works well in his hair beautiful curls shiny hair.

    I LOVE this product!!! It is the best moisturizer compared to all that I have used. I am sooo glad that curl mart finally has it. As the other reviews stated, you have to learn how much to put in your hair. Also i have learned how to get it to define my curls. I have 3c/4a hair and i simply spritz my hair at night, put in some smoothie and then an oil, put my hair in two puffs and cover it with a satin bonnet. And voila! I wake up with curls! I found this completely by accident but its the only product that this method works with. It is a lifesaver :)

    I bought the old one ( the one that has mango butter) and so far I LOVE IT. I used it today for my wash n go. Didn't put anything else, just the curl enhancing smoothie, AMAZING results. Curls are moisturized, soft, frizz free and a bit elongated ( which I like). By the way, a little goes a LONG way. I practically used two nickle sized amounts for my WHOLE head. Great product, will buy again 'til I die hahaha. Let's see if the one without the mango butter is as good or better than this one... FYI, my hair is 3b/3c, fine hair, high density, low porosity.

    I seriously LOVE this product. I use this product along with the coconut/hibiscus milk and it is fantastic. I did the two-twist with my hair using this product and slept with it overnight and then the next day I untwisted my hair and 2 days later (today) it looks reeeaallyy good! The curls are maintained and feels great. The product smells wonderful too. I haven't found a product that works for my hair since I was 11 years old and I'm 16 YEARS OLD now! I'm HALF BLACK/HALF FILIPINO and I'm just super happy now that I know I have something that FINALLY works. (:

    Why is there so much hype about this product? It left my hair sticky and not natural looking.. It smelled good, but this product has to be used with other products because then throughout the day your hair begins to frizz like no other.

    I went natural on accident and this product had become my best friend. It works wonders for my hair and smells amazing. It has definitely become one of my staple products when doing my twist outs and never leaves me disappointed. I definitely feel like it's a must have!

    This is the product that naturals flock to, and it's no wonder why: fits well with most hair types, very moisturizing, smells great, etc. It's easy to get into a routine with this, which is why I started using it immediately post-big-chop. Works well with the curl style milk from the same line also. I have been using it for more than 6 months very regularly and by now I'm over the smell so I'm trying new things to switch up the fragrance but I really wish they offered this same exact product in a different smell just for variation. Otherwise, it still smells great!

    I like using this product. At first I wasn't sure, but when I used it for wash n gos, I was happy that it gave my hair the moisture it needs. It also keeps my hair soft as well. I would recommend this product to anyone looking for a styling product to use after a wash n go.

    I mix this with a small amount of the curling gel scuffle and it makes my hair shine for my twists. It makes my twist last longer. I have tried other products and hands down this is the best product for my twist and twist outs.

    I am using the shampoo, conditioner and Curl Enhancing Smoothie. The smell is amazing. The smoothie is excellent if you have dry hair such as I (4b hair texture). With water it instantly softened my hair from 4b to like 3b. My hair was elongated, moisturized, softened, perfumed WITH NATURAL INGREDIENTS.

    A tad pricey (this was a birthday gift) but definitely worth buying again.

    GODBLESS????????

    For whatever strange reason this product does nothing to define my curl patter.

    IT IS, however, great for sealing off my ends for braiding/twisting styles and hydrating my hair. Also a really good anti-humectant in my case :)

    4/5 for working well, just not for what it is intended to do (in my case)

    this product is just too thick for my hair, and I have a lot of hair. I have used it for a twist out but it took more than 15 hours to dry and my hair was frizzy. I used it for a roller set and had the same results, this time I sat under the dryer for 3 hours and my hair was still wet. I had to take out the rollers because I had to leave for a party, and my hair was so frizzy and felt coated with film. no good for me. I gave it 2 of 5 because I would like to revisit it one day

    This product is great for curl definition! It gives me fat juicy and shiny curls! And with this product if I braid my hair at night I can have day 5 or more hair which is a big acheivement for me! It prevents shrinkage and smells really good! Also you only need a little! A little goes a long way. Only negative thing would have to be it is a tad oily.

    Disgusting. My 2c/3a hair was sticky, tacky, gunky, whatever. It felt dirty, and was impossible to style. It did not have any upside, (which is unusual for me, my approach and take on my hair varies so often that I usually like most products at a certain point in time). It did not add definition, hold, shine.... Nothing. Neeeeeeeeeeeext.

    Being a curly head is the most difficult because you have to really know your hair. I have been searching for the right product for years, and Shea Moisture Curl enhancing smoothie has brought me to the end of my search. I hesitated on buying this product at first, so I read reviews mostly on 3C hair and how it works with my hair type, and I finally bought it and used it with eco olive styler gel and WOW! My hair looks healthy, moisturised, curls are defined beautifully and best of all it smells great! I think this product works best for wash and go's. And it can last up to the 3rd day. On the 4th day it does start to get a little dry, but us curlies should be the queen of moisturising, so 4th day sounds about right to wash and condition again. Overall, amazing stuff! I cant wait to try Shea Moisture Style Milk.

    I am a 3B hair type, I tried using this product combined with their Curl & Style Milk. Its a good product as it doesn't leave any residue and it smells really good. However it just doesn't work for my hair. I have thin curly hair and I like my hair to contain volume. This smoothie cream weighs my hair and causes my curls to look flat versus voluminous which I prefer. I like the Shea Moisture line, but this specific product just doesn't work for me.

    I first started using this product two weeks ago when I first went completely natural. When I first used it, I wasn't a fan BUT I experimented and found out how its works best for me. It works best when my hair is soaking wet and I have no other products or oils in my hair. When I realized how to use it, I loved it. It gives definition without the hold and it moisturizes my hair wonderfully. I only give it 4 curls because it sometimes leaves white residue when it dries if you use too much.

    Started using this about a month ago because I was curious to see if it was worth all the hype that I've heard and seen around the internet, magazines/blogs, and stores. I have thick curly hair and I needed something that would hold up and maintain and not frizz up throughout the day. I've used other curl products in the past and nothing seemed to work as I wanted it too. This product saved my hair...like literally...lol!!! I use this and only this almost everyday now. It keeps my hair maintained and soft without the frizz and afro looking hair throughout the day Great smell and great product! I like that there's a lot inside the container and the price is well worth it. well recommended to anyone:) need to get the whole Shea Moisture line now.

    So the first time that I used this product, I hated it. But this is because I didn't use it properly. After applying this product the correct way to my curls, I fell in love with it! It gives my hair the moisture it needs, and that's something that a lot of products never do. When I use this, I pair it with Shea Moisture's Curl & Style Milk. The combination of these two products work wonders on my hair (:

    First, I used Shea Moisture CES on both damp and dry hair. I have 2b/2c fine, low porosity (healthy) hair. SMCES weighed my curls down to 2 large big waves. It did not give me any definition. I did get very shiny hair. But it looked very fluffy and frizzy. I tried adding some Fantasia IC gel to try and add some definition and control. No luck. I have tried most of the Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus products, but I have returned most of them. I do not think my healthy, fine, low-porosity hair likes the protein. Or it might just be too heavy for my hair.

    I keep a hair journal when I try new products. I write down the temperature, the dew point and the humidity. I section my hair off into four sections and layer products in different orders and consistency to find what works for me. I have discovered my HOLY GRAIL combination for DEEP south humidity! I washed with Alberto VO5 moisture milk, and conditioned with Suave Naturals. I applied a quarter sized dollop of Kinky-Curly Knot Today as a leave-in conditioner. To half of my head I then added a quarter size dollop of CURLS Curl Gel-les'c and to the other side of my hair I applied Kinky-Curly Spiral Spirtz (8 pumps) and Kinky-Curly Curling Custard (a pea size). I let my hair dry. I reapplied a tiny bit of each product to each respective side and let it dry.

    I have been trying to find something to battle the humid Texas summers. It was 102?F, 78% humidity, and the dew point was 70?F. I LOVE Kinky-Curly's products. In my opinion, it was a tie between the CURLS Curl Gel-les'c & the Kinky-Curly side. Bytheway, Both products gave me ZERO FRIZZ, defined, shiny, bouncy curls. Personally I felt that the KC side was a little softer to the touch. But neither side was crunchy, wet-looking or oily! I will buy all the Kinky-Curly products and this CURLS product again. My favorite is the Kinky-Curly for sure.

    (For reference, I'm 2C, fine/dense haired and low porosity)

    Pros: Awesome curl definition and frizz control, pleasant scent. Good for creating bigger, loose curls.

    Cons: Not much hold, and sat on top of my hair, making it gunky and flat. Didn't give me the tighter curls I was hoping to get. The smell is very strong, sweet and coconut-y which loved it at first but it got old after a few weeks of use.

    I have found great success using this product on wet hair after doing a co-wash. I use about a teaspoon and half (a little goes a long way!), which I emulsify between my fingers before distributing it (with a mixture of scrunching and gently smoothing).

    It acts similarly to a gel, giving light definition, while keeping my natural high-porosity hair soft, smooth, and gently shiny (not a brilliant shine, but not unhealthy looking by any means).

    Be warned, however, as this product is very finicky with portions! Too much or too little can have disastrous effects. Too much and curls become crunchy and sticky in texture (blugh!), too little and there may as well be nothing there at all.

    You get a very good deal for the price and one jar has lasted me 6 months, though I use it nearly everyday.

    I was very anxious to use this product because I had heard so much about it- It did not disappoint me! Although I have only used it once, I think I will continue to use it. I tried it with my new wash and go routine. I applied leave in conditioner, smoothie, oil and then a bit of gel. (I love gel, can’t help it!) Even with the thick coat of leave in conditioner underneath, the smoothie went on smoothly and did not build up or leave white residue. It was a great combination. I used to mix grease with gel and this can easily take the place of that. It gives you the right amount of moisture and hold. Sometimes gel can leave your edges "straight" if you use too much and then brush it. This product keeps the curl and still is effective.

    I didn't like this product when I first used it because I thought it was supposed to be a moisturizer.

Plus it smells like candy!

    This product is okay. It has a weird, sticky texture that doesn't go away. Also, when I used it frequently, like as my regular conditioner or leave-in, it caused a lot of breakage (I'm guessing because of the protein in it...?) |||

    This just might be my HG product. As a wavy 2a/b with fine and porous hair, I wasn't sure what to expect, but the results are amazing and unlike any other product that I've tried (which is more than I care to admit!). After cowashing and using KKKT as a leave in, I apply a fairly small amount of the smoothie using a 'praying' motion down the length of my hair, and then I simply scrunch and go. The resulting waves are soft and natural with loose definition. Zero crunch, zero 'wet look'. Totally touchable tousled waves. I do experience some frizz by later in the day (Pacific west coast spring), but nothing that can't be solved with a little damp scrunch-n-smooth at the bathroom sink at lunch time. Given that this product is all natural, I think that my search for the perfect product is over. Wavies, if you're finding this product too sticky or heavy, cut back on how much you use... I was surprised by how little I need in my long hair. THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!

    This product is too heavy for my hair and left it feeling too producty/ oily/ tangly. I love the smell and ingredients list though, but feel it is best suited to thick, coarse hair as recommended on the label. I was able to use this in the winter on occasion, as it really did make my hair LOOK nice, but I didn't like the way it FELT at all.

    I have 3a medium texture, high porosity hair. Oils don't normally feel heavy on me unless I use too much, for reference.

My curls have never popped with any other product. They are so defined and they lasted for days. The shrinkage is crazy but I really don't mind it. By the second day it begins to stretch from "pineappling" at night. I have been using it for my twist outs and I can't wait to try it on my wash and gos.

    This is truly what it professes to be and is the best product I discovered for my 4C hair providing the moisture required for my hair type. Because the smoothie worked so well for my hair, I was encouraged to purchase other Shea Moisture products. Today I use Shea Moisture's Moisture Retention shampoo, the Cowashing Conditioner, the Restorative Conditioner, the Moisture & Hold mist and the Curling Souffle. The Smoothie is my #1 go-to product every time I twist and/or roll my hair. I have NEVER seen such beautifully defined and moisturized curls as I have with this product. I recommend it to anyone who finds their hair to be dry or unmanageable. The curl enhancing smoothie with altar that outlook. It certainly has for me.

    The only reason I give this product two curls is because of the scent. My twa is multi-textured, it's mostly 3c, and frizzy in the top, this product did nothing to alleviate the frizz. I brought the whole kit containing: shampoo, styling milk, curl smoothie, and misting spray. I tried everything separately and combined and I do not like the results. My hair feels bushy and lacks curl. I am thankful that I brought this kit at a deeply discounted cost or I wold be more unhappy about the results. :(

    I really, really am not impressed by Shea Moisture products. I purchased the Curling Smoothie with hopes that it would give my curls some definition and hold as well as cut down on frizz. It did none of this, in fact it made my hair look frizzier than usual after it dried-and it took close to four hours for my hair to dry with this in it. I've tried using this product about five different ways with as many different combos of products and NONE of them have had any success. I don't know if Shea Moisture products are just too heavy for my baby fine hair or if I'm not using them correctly or what it is-but this product was such a dissapointment. I loved the way it smelled but in the end it resulted in no curl definition and a boatload of frizz. It doesn't work on my mother's hair either, and she has fine hair too, just like me. Also, the shrinkage in this is ridiculous. When my hair is straightened it's to my breasts, when I used this, it's nearly above my ears. Not cool. I think this product would work better for women who have thicker hair. For fine hair it seems to do nothing but weigh it down-and this is the experience I've had using most of the other Shea Moisture products. I just don't think they have good stylers for fine hair. Maybe it's catered to women who have 3c-4b hair? I don't know. I just hate that I paid almost $10 for something that does not work.

    I really like this stuff! I doesn't weigh my hair down and it moisturizes very well (which is good because my hair sucks up water). It smells great and defines my curls nicely :) It took me a while to realize that a little goes a long way with this product because too much will leave residue.

    I've been using this on my 3A curls for about a month. Previously I used the Curl & Style Milk (for around a year), but when I tried the smoothie, I found it works better. I follow it up with a tiny bit of gel. Makes my hair shiny & happy, especially in these dry winter months. I will likely just use less of it in the summer. I have a very sensitive scalp, and many gels & leave-in conditioners give me a rash, but this is great on my scalp. I've yet to try it with a defuser, as I prefer to air-dry my hair (even though it takes around 3 hours at medium length), but my guess is that it would do rather well since it's so rich and emollient.

    I've been using this for a little over 3 months. I like the smell and consistency. It woks best wet on my 3b/3c hair, when dry it does nothing. It does add shine and moisture, but always leaves my hair looking puffy and frizzy when dry. It definitely is NOT a stand alone product. I've combined this with many stylers and it's really hit or miss (more miss than hit) Not anything special, I really can get the same results with much cheaper products. I now only use it on my ends on top of my leave in and it works really well at locking moisture in as long as I apply to wet hair. I love that there's no build up or residue. I also like that its all natural.

    I adore this product SO much! It has a lovely smell, great texture, very moisturizing, and great for second day hair (sometimes even third day hair! what can I say, I'm a mom of a toddler, haha!)! I think it's a great price too. Even though I use it nearly every day for my shoulder length hair it usually takes me a while to get through a jar.

It mousturizes very well. And it does not weigh my hair down. That is what I love most about it. This product has everything I need to get my hair back healthy and beautiful again.

    I wasn't so sure about this product at first. It contains glycerine which seems to not work for me with other products. Also I wasn't sure I really needed it. But now I'm sold. I can use this product as a base styler/leave in before gel, as a deep treatment, as a refreshing cream for the next day if my curls have gone haywire while I slept, and apparently as a hand lotion because my hands are always really soft after applying it. There's also talk of it being a good rinse out. I don't know. (Seems to good to rinse down the drain!) I just know there's nothing this product can't do for my 3A curls. It keeps them moisturized, enhances my curl pattern, and adds an extra layer of hold. I also love the smell. I wish it smelled like something else though because it honestly does make me very hungry for fruit. Kind of distracting. Honestly the curl and style milk is even worse though. It makes me want a pina colada. But I'll save that review for later.

    Okay I think I figured it out. I started using this as a base when my hair is wet before my twists. I use this, then a little hair milk, and then the soufflé while I twist. In the morning I undo my twists and YES!! My twist out last for 3 days and possibly 4 if I leave my fingers out of it! Lots of moisture with no frizz!!

    I used this product on its own, in combination with the Milk, and with Deva ArcAnGel, and just couldn't find a good mix for it. It worked for the first part of the day, my curls were soft and tight, but by the end of the day my hair looked and felt greasy/straw like. I didn't really care for it. The smell is nice in the Smoothie, not too over whelming. Personally, I preferred the KCCC.

    I have been using this product for almost a year now and it has been apart of my styling routine. I have thick long hair and this product makes my curls defined and soft. I only use it after I wash my hair and it is clean and ready for styling I have never used it on dry hair but I doubt it would work as well because it is very thick. It smells nice and adds enough hold for my ringlet curls.

    It does help curl your hair . I have thick hair and im 3b, 3c in certain areas. It doesnt give 2nd hair on me. Maybe others. It also feels drying once you put it in hair. Once it is dry it feels so-so. Honestly i feel its just a basic product nothing to oooo about if you know how your hair should feel. It doesnt smell pretty good!

    I love this!! I typically use this when I do twist outs and I get good results, but I started using it when I do two strands and it's great!! It moisturizes, defines my curls, gives my hair shine, and keep my twists frizz free. Also, unlike what it says here, it is sulfate free, which is the main reason why I started using it.

    So far I love this stuff ! A little certainly goes a long way with it and I love the definition it provides for my 4a/3c twa ! Coupled with the hair milk which I was reluctant to try due to its consistency my hair has the perfect amount of definition and moisture ! My sister has a full head of hair and has used it on her 4a/3c twist out and it turns out amazing ! <3

I need to get more!

    I have pretty fine 3b hair and I think this product was too heavy for my hair. Then again, I may have used to much, but I'll try it again with less product. It definitely defined my curls, but didn't do much for frizz. I'm going to try and put a small amount of this product under my ArcAngel.

    I wasn't sure about this after i first used it. I used it for a twist out and two strand twist. It didn't provide alot of moisture, but I loved what it did for my twist out and the hold it gave me for my two strand twist. I didn't have to continuously retwist, and I loved this product for that.

    It has been a while since I have used this and I still have some left in the jar in my product junkie reserve drawer. I was just starting to transition when I purchased it, so I will give it another try eventually as my hair is in MUCH better condition now. I love the fact that the ingredient list is comprised of recognizable ingredients. I have used this for twistouts and it provided shine and bounce, but hold is minimum as expected. I won't get 2nd day hair from this alone with a wash and go, but if it is layered under something with better hold it does it's job. I like the fact that it is not just a styling product but that I am "feeding" my hair with the ingredients. I think the smell is ok, but I am not sensitive to smells either way. I wouldn't say it is a must have for me, but it is nice to have as a backup and considering the quality of ingredients, it is fairly priced.

    I really wanted to love this product. I watched and read a bunch of good reviews and it seemed like it would be the product that would finally work just perfect for me but, I guess I had way too high expectations because when I finally got my hands on it and used it, it was disappointing. I suppose it does enhance curls but I dont feel like it moisturizes very much and it seemed like my curls shrunk a little. I used it for a wash and go and my hair felt like it wasn't sticky but something almost waxy. I HATE it when my hair feel like that. I tried it with Alba Botanica soft hold cream on top and it worked so much better. My curls had a nice hold and didn't feel too waxy. Maybe the first time i used too much? It smells nice but after having it all day I grew sick of it. After applying alba botanica soft hold the smell wasn't all around me anymore, now I only smell the scent when I sniff my hair, which is nice.

    I have a love & hate relationship with this product. I find it works best on clean wet hair. I use it like a creamy moisturizer. I put leave-in or gel over it to hold my curls in place. Its seems to play well with other products but sometimes for no reason it makes my hair frizz.. My hair needs help to curl..so its great for making my hair curl up. but if I leave it that it will puff up. So it needs something else to hold the curl in place and smooth while it drys. So far it works well with Mixed Silk leave-in.

    I have been using this product for about 4-5 weeks now and must say, I really like this product. Any product that is $10 or less and really works gets my vote. The moisture and definition from twist outs are phenomenal! I get a full weeks worth of moisture and definition from my twist-outs and that is a plus for me. Prior to using this product I've been using Cantu (not the naturals line) cream and yes the moisture & definition was there but for maybe 3-4 days. I will purchase this product again. I'm not using the entire line, just the smoothie.

    I have 3b fine hair and I just started getting into finally learning how to care for my curls. This is a great product, I use it as a leave in mostly. It's not very good for detangling, though, so I don't recommend this to girls with fine 3b (somewhat damaged) hair as an in shower conditioner. Maybe it would work better if my hair was less damaged. This product smells SO nice and has really great hold! I've been using it as an alternative to gel and mousse. While my hair is wet I'll take a glob about the size of a nickel and scrunch it on to one side and repeat for the next side. It is a little heavy on my hair, so I do not rake it through because that causes my curls to go flat! The hold is so good that after applying it to my wet hair, when my hair was damp and i could finally see all the fly aways and broken curls i just took some water, poked the product and swirled the problem pieces in small sections and it created a reallllly nice ringlet effect! it held up all day.

    I will probably buy this again :) I have the leave in conditioner too (bogo at CVS!) but I havent used it much since this one rocks so much.

    Great curl cream. (It's almost as perfect as the completely perfect Coffee Coco Curl Cream.) Curl Enhancing Smoothie gives my hair much needed moisture plus good separation and hold. This lasts for a couple of days, and SheaMoisture Coconut Hibiscus Spray is the perfect refresher spray to reactivate this product and regain shape minus frizz. The reasonable price is so nice to see on such a high quality, effective product. Defintely a staple for me.

    This product definitely adds moisture to my hair. It enhances my curls and does not weigh my hair down at all .It's extremely versatile as I use it to do braid-outs, twists, wash-n-go and just as a daily moisturizer to replenish 2nd/3rd hair. Great price point too for a natural product.

    I gave it 4 stars because if I use too much of it on my dry curls it will tend to make my hair slightly frizzy. I am still working on figuring out the right amount to use.

    My hairtype is 3b/c.
    I was very excited to use this product, but when I first used it I hated it. It didn't do any of the things it says it should do; my curls weren't defined nor moistured. I first used it as a seal in over my KCKT. Now, I use it before I go to bed. I put a little all over my hair, make two french braids and go to sleep. When I wake up my hair is so soft and moisturized and I don't have to add any water or product to make it look good! If it were for sale in Europe I'd buy it again. It doesn't do what it's supposed to for my hair, but because it's an all natural moisturizing product it's okay.

    There is no question about it--this product absolutely makes my hair softer upon drying. I smooth a relatively small amount through my very wet hair, sometimes in sections. If I am braiding my hair back at this point, I don't need to use any other products. When I take the hair out of the braid it is SO soft. However if I just want to leave my hair down to air dry, this product is not enough. There is not enough hold, and the curls start to frizz up and separate (even when they aren't touched or jostled). I also don't have hours to sit in one spot in the air conditioning waiting for my hair to dry perfectly before heading out into the humidity, which this product requires for best results. I love the softness, but I still haven't found quite the right product to pair with this moisturizing smoothie when I want to let my locks free!

    This product is great on my fine 3B hair! At first it made it feel kind of oily and gloppy, but I think I was using too much. If I work this through, then clip or plop and allow to dry naturally, I get super soft, bouncy, moisturized curls. (I should mention that they dry a little hard, but as soon as I scrunch and loosen up the curls at the scalp, they feel super soft.) Using this as a solo product, with some of the milk to tame frizz or for 2nd day hair. 4 curls because I wish I could use this alone, but it's a little too heavy for my hair to use on the 2nd day. Still, a great product at a great price. Check Target, they sometimes have a very good sale on this!

    I like this product not sure if I'm in love yet, I've been using for 6 days now. Conditions hair YES! Restoring moisture YES! Shine.. not so much. I noticed my hair is alot thicker (which I looove) and super duper soft. I haven't had to use it every single day. One night my satin cap fell off during my sleep and usually when this happens I wake up and my hair is dry but with this product my hair was still soft and fluffy. I also noticed that the little hairs on the nap of my neck are now tiny little curls instead of.. blah. Now haven't tried this product on any actual style ( I've been wearing a pinned up puff kinda thing this week lol) Not giving this product 5 stars because I haven't used it to its full potential.. but so far so good. Oh and it smells amazing, and this coming from a person who hates coconuts.

Also, out of all the products ive used for wash and goes, I always get the least shrinkage w/ these two products. I strongly recommend them to anyone w/ dry hair of any natural hair type. Always have to have some in the house or w/ me when traveling.

Keeps my hair moisturized for days. I usually use it under a gel and it eliminates some of the crunch that even a maximum hold of 10 gel can have. Love it for wash and go's, twists, and braid outs. I have type 3b/c hair.

    FFor my 3c corkscrew curls this stuff is AMAZING!! I got it in the SheaMoisture curl and shine kit and my hair loves it along with the entire coconut and hibiscus line. I use it as a deep condition or on top of the curling soufle to combat major frizz. This leaves my hair soft and moisturized for at least 3 days (I wash or cowash every 3 days).All in all I will be rebuying because this along with the rest of the line is my new staple.

    I bought this product, as well as the shampoo and conditioner, and I must say I was very impressed. I to was hesitant about purchasing this product because I had already purchased so many different products and was disappointed with the outcome. I did give in and purchased this, and I will never look back. My hair is 4c and I never had curls after washing my hair. When I washed my hair and conditioned and applied the smoothie after it dried, my hair was soft and curly. I am very impressed by Shea Moisture and will tell anyone to try it.

    I was so hesitant to purchase this; I know the reviews are stellar and no one had complained about this product but my staple WAS DevaCurl Styling Cream. I loved DCSC so much that I didn't want to try anything else, though SM is way cheaper and it wouldn't hurt to try. We all have our staples and get a little to attached sometimes, right? ;p Well last night I broke and purchased this instead of my DCSC. I was nervous and skeptical but the Pina Colada smell altered my judgement and I left Ricky's with it.

    So the verdict: aMAZING! It takes DCSC and knocks it out of the window. Also it's much cheaper and smells awesome. I love love love love this product. Now I may need to slow my role because I have only tried it once but what the heck. It worked so well especially in this horrible heat. I mean no frizz! All that is left is defined, fluffy, soft and beautiful curls. It is a keeper and a must.

    I have 4a hair. This product to me works best after a shampoo w/ the shea smoothie shea butter shampoo and conditioner. I use it for two-strand twists. Makes my hair super soft, unlike twist-outs with gel.

    I bought this last year in August and I still have it in my cabinet. It can seriously last 2 years or more. It smells almost like pina colada drink, It has a thick creamy texture and it does sink into your hair. You can use it as a detangler or add protein and it brings out a natural shine to any style. It doesn't take away crunching like the Shea Moisture Yucca and Biotin thickening conditioner. But it lightly softens your hair. Use a little bit and concentrate mostly on the ends of your hair. Since it is a curl enhancing smoothie, it does shrink your hair but, that doesn't bother me.

    I would reccomend this for people who don't have severe allergies to plants/fruits, who want a product that can last them a couple years, beginners, and who can stand minor residue and shrinkage.

    I LOVE this stuff!!! At first I was a little reluctant because it seemed like everything just wouldn't make my hair look AMAZING. But I decided to buy it at Walgreens and I'm so glad I did. It has a very good quantity for the price and plus it smells like a coconut and pineapple smoothie. Yum. I applied about three fingertips worth of the product all over my hair after i got done with a co-wash, raked it through and let it air dry overnight. When I woke up, it had this natural shine and it was bouncy and defined, NO frizz and SO soft!!! I'm so glad to find my first staple in my regimen :)

    Posted by dreamc (Type 3a) on 06/11/2012

    I tried the smoothie this morning for the first time. I used it alone after washing and conditioning my hair. Scooped out about two tablespoons for my thick, shoulder length hair, rubbed it in my hands and just scrunched it in my towel dried hair, and let it air dry. On the plus side, I have had my hair up and down a couple of times in a pony tail at work, and under a cowboy hat blowing around in my jeep, and I have had zero frizz all day with great curl definition with just a little scrunching or fluffing every time I took the hat off or out of the pony tail. On the minus side, every time I scrunch my fingers through my hair, my hands have a slightly greasy feel to them. My hair doesn't look greasy though, and I love the smell. I will try again tomorrow with about half of what I used today in hopes that I get the same look, but no residue on my hands (although my hands are staying moist, which may be good for my nails!). Expecting rain in a couple of days, so that will really be the test!

    I really like this product. I use it to wet twist my hair and to enhance my twist-outs. It's not heavy or too light and it works well with my EVOO-Coconut oil mixture as I moisturize and seal. I picked it up at Target at a reasonable price ($9.99). I recommend it for types 3c and up.

    I got very nice curl definition with this and it elongated my curls but my curls looked more stringy and less clumped. I have fine 3c/4a hair and I think it was a bit too heavy for me but it has a nice scent and I liked the definition I got.

    This is my go to holy grail hair product. I use it for leave in, conditioning, smoothing the next day, and it always does great. It has great slip when using as a rinse out conditioner, and is a great non greasy/non heavy leave in especially on my ends that are really coarse and recquire alot of product. Love the smell and you get a good quantity for the price and the quality.

    I believe I picked up this product in Walgreens, and it does contain Glycerin in it. Because of that I can't really use this product in my daughter's hair. My husband also started to complain that after a while it felt like this product dried his hair out. It may also be the silk protein. They are both kind of protein sensitive.

    I have been using this product for a good month and a half now. I bought it at Target for a very reasonable price.
    With it I also got the style and hold milk and the curling souffle. This curl enhancing smoothie is thick and smells Amazing. I have seen a new sheen on my hair probably from the healthy oil all of these contain. At first i would run it though my hair with my fingers but i found this to break my curls. I mix a little bit of the Curl enhancing smoothie with the style milk or i'll mix it with just the curl souffle and scrunch. Scrunching in very damp hair made a huge difference. I have always had the problem where the back of my hair does not get defined but with this product It evenly distributes. I took it to Nicaragua and in the tropical and humid heat it worked just fine. Amazing product but dont just use one. Use 2 together. And your hair will smell amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Posted by dresdendoll (Type 2c) on 05/20/2012

    I didn't care for this. I tried it last winter, and I found it left my hair undefined, dry, and frizzy. I'd figure I'd give it another go in summer and that it might work better because I bought the Shea Moisture Retention Shampoo (which is GREAT!) but it still didn't work. I tried it as a leave-in/styler, and it was OK but left my kind of flat. As a rinse-out, it provided no moisture whatsoever. If I used too much, I'd be stringy and dry, and if I used too little, I'd be clumpy and dryer. It smells good, though. I'll stick to my beloved Darcy's Botanicals, though(:

    I LOVE THIS PRODUCT!! I have 4b hair and I was going through my experimenting phase and started using this 2 months ago. It keeps my hair moisturized and my curls defined. It isn't greasy either, which is a plus. I trust the ingredients, I love seeing all the natural ingredients added in. The smell is sweet but it can be really strong if you use it excessively. Not to mention it is affordable, about $10 at target and it lasts for a long time. I love almost everything in the Shea Moisture Collection (products that I've tried so far) and I love that the prices are reasonable. In comparison to other popular products, such as Miss Jessie's, I feel you;'re getting the best for your hair for a better price! Love it!

The gel doesn't make my hair hard or flakey...try using both..First add a little bit of the curl smoothie then add the gel all over..trust me its great and inexpensive.

    I love this stuff! It doesn't clump my curls but it adds soo much moisture! The only thing is that it smells really good in the container ..and then you put it in your hair. For some reason in my hair it smells really ..i don't know how to describe it. It reminds of the old black hair care products you don't want your hair to smell like. But otherwise its great! I'll always have this on hand. Also, when I do my deep conditioner mixtures I add this and it makes my hair soo soft and wonderful.

    When I first used this product I didn't like it at all. It didn't seem to absorb in my hair, however, recently I watched a tutorial where someone with similiar hair texture used it and decided to try it again. Boy am I glad I did. I realized that I have to use it on wet hair (fresh out of the shower). I even midst my hair again with water after use for better absorbency. After that I generally apply a little gel for hold and my curls and scrunch excess water out with a tshirt. I'm left with very moisturized and super soft curls.

My curls/waves also lasted me that whole day. I'm now on day two and my hair is still very moisturized. I definately recommend this product!

    This product is hit and miss for me. First thing I noticed when I opened the jar (other than the wonderful smell) was the creamy, silky looking texture of the product. It has great ingredients and works for me as a daily moisturizer, but it's a miss as a styler. Do I think it's worth checking out? Absolutely!!...as a moisturizer.

    This is 2nd time I've used this. First time I used it w/o my LaBella Lots of Curls gel, I definately NEED it with the gel. WIth the gel, it makes my hair stringly & droopy curls. I think it works better if Im touching it up to get a 3rd day curl if I'm too busy to do my hair. Otherwise, it does make my hair softer, but it doesn't give my curls definition. Just soft hair, droopy & stringy curls. So a 3 stars for softness.

    Posted by Tryst (Type 2b) on 03/22/2012

    I have 2B hair and I tried some of the Shea Moisture products this morning. The Smoothie felt like it would have a really strong, almost crispy hold when I scooped out some product. However, after plunking and diffusing a little, it gave a really soft hold. So far, the curls have lasted today (6 hours). My hair doesn't feel sticky or greasy, however, if I touch my hair, my hands feel a little sticky/slick. Also, the product has a very heavy perfume scent that's starting to bother me.

    Overall, this worked great to give shine and hold to my 2B waves, no cruchiness, stickiness or greasy feeling. I've had tighter curl patterns from other products, but this works really well for me so far. The only downside right now is the strong scent ><

    I wish I had this at the start of my natural journey. I am willing to try different products, but I always come back. I don't like this product in the winter for wash n' go's, but now that spring is back, OH MY GOODNESS!!! This product does not provide hold, none! So, if that is what you want your curls to remain springy looking then this product is not for you. I love big hair and I am guessing because of the glycerin, when the dew points are high my hair swells and I love it. I get this big hair with so much movement and it so soft. If you don't like shrinkage, this is also not for you. My hair curly is about ear lobe length, but straight it almost armpit length, however, as the days go by because I can get 3 day hair with Shea, it gets longer. Again, if you are looking for that springy curly look you will not get this with Shea, it will start out that way, but as day warms and their is moisture in the air your hair will grow massive. Also the price is right and they are forever having BOGO's for the product.

    The Curl Enhancing Smoothie is defintely a keeper! I am on my third jar of this product. It is one of those old faithfuls, I may try other moisturizers but I know that when I reach for this it will always do the job. It leaves my hair super soft to to the touch and moisturized. The more product I use the longer it will retain the moisture. Now I will say that if you're heavy handed like myself you shouldn't expect to be able to do some twists with this and then leave the house an hour or so later with a defined twist out. Its so moisturizing and thick it will give you super puffy cloudy hair. However, if you leave your twists in for a day or so you can definitely achieve great definition. The fact that this is only 9.99, on the ground and easily accessible at various retailers makes this a 5 Curl product for me.

    still experimenting with different ways to use this but so far i am very impressed...what i found out so far is that it works best on damp (not wet!!) hair...i two-strand twist pieces of my hair and let it either air dry or blow dry it at a low setting...my curls stayed for almost 6 days and i only applied it one time!! it doesnt have incredible hold but somehow stayed curly for a long time, as well as the shine and the bounciness...im not a big fan of gels so this product left me very very VERY impressed...i will definetly stock up!

    This is my first experience with Shea Moisture products and I was truly impressed by the results we achieved using the Curl Enhancing Smoothie! I used it immediately after washing and conditioning my 3b hair, as a leave in conditioner and detangler. My curls were nicely defined and my hair was soft, shiny, and beautifully fragrant. It resisted humidity induced frizz and though I used no other product after applying the Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie, my 2nd day hair is gorgeous as well (in fact, if I didn't desperately need a hair cut, I'd be submitting pictures and/or a video review to show off)!

    We also used the product on my daughter's 4b hair and had great results with her as well. We are definitely fans and will continue to use this product and look forward to trying more items within the Shea Moisture brand.

I don't think someone should allow someone else outcome prevent them from trying it. it depends on what our hair likes. This product defined my curls and they actually stayed for 3 days!

    Compared to other products this is nothing. I think it may be too thick and not much slip either. As I am learning more about my hair and what works. I now see how much Shea moisture isn't really doing anything for me, I used to use this stuff a lot and used to think this was the best, but now I'm stepping away from Shea moisture.

    I absolutely hated this product when I first tried it. It seemed to do nothing to bring out any moisturized curls whatsoever. However, being a newbie, I began to work it into my regimen in a different way and now I love it. I don't use this on wash day at all, I instead use a leave in then shea butter and twist my hair. The next day, after my hair is dry, I apply just a bit to the hair, especially the ends, when re-twisting, and it works MUCH better. From there, I add a little to re-moisturize my ends about 15-20 prior to taking my twists out for my 'twist-out' and it works great! I'm not a big pro but you can visit me on YouTube to see my hair 4a/b texture, LPShareTube.

    At first this didn't do much for me... softening but no control or anything when used as a styler. on a whim i used it for regular conditioner and my hair is super soft, although third, sometimes even second day hair is a bit sticky at the scalp. i still will use it under a mousse/hairspray as a leave in conditioner as well. makes my 2c slightly stringy waves bigger and fluffier. good product, but probably wont buy again, especially considering the price.

    Okay product....it was too heavy in my hair even using a tiny amount. It really does define my curls but by the time it's dry, which is longer with this product(about 6 hours with this in), my hair is sticky to the touch and I can't manipulate it to get rid of this weird crunch thing that's not really a crunch. It's like a super super strong hold that scrunching won't get rid of. But it does smell great and moisturizes, but I'm not sure when I'll be able to use this product...

    Works for me used as a leave-in on damp hair under a gel (I used Donna Marie Miracurl Jelly and it must be sealed with an oil), used on dry/lighly spritzed hair as a styler/refresher and as a prepoo. Awesome results with each of these - clumping, moisture and shine. The day I plan on shampooing I style my hair with this as my prepoo & styler for the day. I have fine, 4a, low porosity hair.

    I must say at first I HATED this product. But when I used a dime sized amount by itself it had absolutely no hold. I guess it's because it's just a moisturizer. But when I tried a dime size amount with Shea moisture's curling soufflé I was in love! They work so well together. I might not buy the curl enhancing smoothie after this one is finished but I'm going to live it up until its gone !

    My hair felt heavy, dry, and greasy. I have no clue how a product can make your hair feel greasy, but still dry. I have mostly 3c hair with 4a in the back and 4b around my front edges. I also think my hair might have low porosity.
    I hope this helps you in deciding whether or not this product will work for your hair.

    ...i notice coconut oil does nothing for my hair, so I wonder if that could play a part too.

    I really, REALLY love what this product did for my hair. However... the scent was simply too strong. I have multiple chemical sensitivities and difficulties with strongly scented products. While it is wonderful for my hair, it gave me terrible headaches that kept me awake at night. I was so sad to have to give it up to my very curly sister who will hopefully like it as much as I did. I wish this came unscented- I would buy it in bulk!

    Product did nothing for my 4b/4c thick, coarse hair. It made it feel like straw whenever I put it on damp hair. It felt too greasy when I put a dime sized amount on dry hair. I've tried so hard to want to like this product because of the ingredients and how cheap it was, but I'm gonna have to let this one go.

    This product worked well when I was styling my hair while wet. However, I found myself having to apply it every night to get the same results. This cream based product is a bit greasy and builds up easily. It does live your hair moisturized and defines curls, but you have to keep applying it which weighs your hair down. It also makes my hair feel dirty and had a tendency to leave white balls.

    Posted by SarahZmina (Type 3b) on 12/06/2011

    I love this stuff. I was hesitant at first to try it because I thought the butters would weigh my hair down and make it feel greasy. However, after using it, my hair was wonderful. It felt really soft and helped create wonderful curls. I used it in conjunction with CK and LA Looks Sport Gel. It comes in a huge container and I only had to use a little bit. My hair goes just below my shoulders when wet. I would recommend this to any 3B gals looking for better curl formation and softer locks. The price at Walgreens was right too at $9.99.

    Let me start off my saying that this was my first attempt at any natural hair product. So maybe I just don't know what I'm doing. However, I washed and conditioned my hair then added the custard while my hair was very wet. I twist my hair and let it air dry. This did nothing for me! I would use it for a conditioner because it left my hair soft. However, it did nothing for my curls

    I'm a huge fan of all of the products in this line. The curl enhancing smoothie is wonderful. A little bit goes a long way to keep your curls and coils moist and bouncy. I don't reapply everyday because, as worth any product it will build up. Just spritz a little water on the hair and restyle. I highly recommend this product, you get great results for a great price.

    I LOVE THIS PRODUCT! I have to admitt i have been an avid fan of everything DEVA curl for the past 4 years, but it was getting way to exspensive. Gel makes my hair take forever to dry and weighs it down so i dont have much definition to my hair. I wanted to try something that would give me definition all day withouth weighing it down and this is it! i have 3A type curls and this works perfectly! my hair is not greasy so i am able to use it twoards my roots. I just take a little at a time and really rub it between my hairs and make sure i get all my hair and scrunch and i kidd you not it takes my hair 20 minutes to dry! I LOVE THIS!

    This product claims to minimize frizz, define curls, and add moisture. I was so excited for this--but it didn't do any of that. It actually made my hair more frizzy, weighed down the curls, and made it dry. I was so disappointed...maybe it's because it's winter? I just bought the Deep Treatment Masque and am going to use that as a leave-in. It gets two curls for smelling soooo amazing :)

    I LOVE this stuff! I can use it in a bunch of different ways. My favorite way to use it is to mix a little bit of the smoothie and a little bit of SM curling souffle. I get soft, defined curls by doing that! It's also good for SOTC, and to be used on second day hair to lay down some frizz. Plus, it smells AMAZING and last FOEVER. I've had it about 2 months and have barely made a dent in the jar. Love it!

The only thing is that it takes my hair REALLY long to dry...but that may or may not be due to this product Lol.

I have also tried the shea moisture hair milk. That is one of my staples! Great product.

    I love this. I found it for 9.99 at Walgreen's, so I love the price. I love the smell. It smells as if I could eat it and the smell doesn't give me any problems, though I usually have sensitivities to fragrances. I also love how my hair looks and feels when I use it. I just mush it in to my wet hair after it is past the dripping wet stage. I first put in Motions triple action leave-in conditioner (and sometimes one of the Garnier Fructis silicone free conditioner or the Dollar General equivalent). It works wonderful on my 4b hair.

    I was a little skeptical because it's recommended for types 3-4, and I'm a 2c, but it gave me exactly the moisture it needed. My hair was increasingly so dry that my curls were going limp no matter what I did, and I was getting so frustrated because nothing I tried seemed to be working. This brought life back to my waves, I'll definitely be using this all fall/winter. I am so glad I bought this!

    Posted by danyel02 (Type 4a) on 11/03/2011

    Let me start of by saying that this stuff smells really really yummy. It reminds me of Jujubes! The product in no way helps define my curls but it does provide nice sheen and a slight hold for twist-outs and braid-outs. Also I would not consider this product a moisturized but it is an excellent sealant and does keep my hair soft. So why the 3 star rating. Well I feel the product is good but slightly mis-advertised and most importantly it gives me crazy build up on day one. Its texture and consistency makes it a great product for twisting but it leaves my strands coated and flaking and i can't stand it. I can only use it right before I wash or I am left with hair covered in buildup! I will definitely finish the one I have but I doubt I will rebuy!

    When my hair was shorter (about 1-2 inches) it gave me definition and moisture. But now that my hair is getting longer it doesn't seem to define them. But I will say it does provide great moisture to my 3c curls. It also it smells great.

    Have been using this product for a week by itself as was and go and so far LOVING IT. I have 4b low porosity hair and usually just end up with a poofy mess after putting in product and my hair finally air dries. BUT this has made my hair more defined and moisturized than it has ever been just simply finger combing it through my hair after wetting and giving a bit of a scrunch. At the end of the day my hair is soft and not crunchy or dry.
    Only drawback is my hair doesn't absorb most products well so as it dries(roughly 1 1/2 hours) my hair is white in sections.

    I'll give this a 3 because of the lovely smell, but after reading the many wonderful reviews and watching YouTube videos of people praising this product, I was really excited the give this a try. Imagine to my surprise when I applied this to my hair, it didn't do anything. So after watching a YouTube video of a woman using this product along with a alcohol-free gel to get her hair curly, I decided to try the same. While that method worked, I didn't like mixing 2 products just to make my hair curly. I wouldn't buy this product again.

    NOT a fan. Bought due to all of the rave comments, and was very excited to use, but this did nothing for my 3b hair. I love that it's all natural, but that's the best thing about this in my opinion. It does not smell like hibiscus or coconut, it just smells sweet... almost like candy, which was disappointing to me. I tried this smoothie each day over the course of one week, and tried using different amounts and methods of application...no success. I tried using it as the first step on wet hair, small amount and then a larger amount, with and without a gel second step. I tried mixing it in my hands with water and raking through soaking wet hair. I tried mixing it with my leave in. I tried scrunching it in after applying my gel. No matter what I tried I had the same result... big, frizzy hair that felt weighed down. I did not get more curl definition and my hair did not feel softer. VERY disappointed in this product.

    I really did enjoy using this product on dry hair only. It is very moisturizing, However, my hair felt best when when I used this product on dry hair. I would apply it to dry hair, finger comb it in gently, and then put my hair in about 10 big twists. After letting the hair set overnight, I was left with moisturized, soft, stretched hair. The next day, the hair does feel a little dry, which is why it gets 4 stars for me. That is remedied by adding a little extra product of a spray of glycerin water to the hair when I retwist that night. Also I did not like using this product to wet twist set my hair. When my twist dried, the hair did not feel moisturized which I did not like about this product.

My curls are super soft and it looks thoroughly hydrated. I would imagine this is because of all the natural ingredients it has as opposed to another ridiculously high priced cream I was using. I would definitely by this by the case if I could.

I thought it would have helped with the frizz, but believe it or not, it made it worse! I thought I may have put too much or too little, so I tried the product 3 more times in 2 months, and same results. My hair just didn't take a liking to it. The smell is awesome though!

    Posted by CurlyQueer (Type 3a) on 08/10/2011

    Love love love! I have used this product in a few ways since I got it, and it makes happy every time! I first used underneath gel on damp hair as a curl creme and got fabulous definition, I then used on second day dry hair and had curls that were revived and soft (still some frizz - but I haven't found a second day product/technique that doesn't have any, and this had much less than other products) and just tonight I put it on very wet hair with nothing else and have bouncy, shiny, springy ringlets that smell *incredible*!
    This seems to be highly recommended for much tighter curl patterns than I have, but I love it! Its also not too heavy for my fine hair, and seems to have the perfect balance of protein and moisture for me.

    This was the first shea moisture product that I have ever tried, but I have to say I really enjoyed this product! When I used it for the first time while doing a "braid/twist out" (I know what was I thinking) it came out ok. I didn't like the way the style came out but what did I expect I did a braid/twist out. So then when a parted my hair into smaller sections and used the smoothie my hair came out looking funky and so cute! Many eyes were on me and even someone said I looked older which is kinda a compliment since I'm only a teen.When I was at walgreens with my mom in the haircare section of course some older man walled by and looked directly at me and then looked immediately in amazement and then said hi to me with a grin and excitement to his face! And from that I knew it was my curls that made me looked even more beautiful as an African American young lady! But soon after that I met back up with my mon because I didn't want some older man trying to hit on me! lolXp My curls were shiny and defined. I personally liked the second day hair better but after the second day my hair become very frizzy so I had to wash it. But yeah I really liked this product! For sure I'm buying more Shea moisture and will come back to review this product again since I'm a noob when it comes to taking care my natural hair and styling!

    My best girl friends recommended this product line after I did the BC in November and I must say that I love it! I recently did my two strand twists with Shea Moisture and some mango butter and my curls are soooo soft! I can't keep my hands out of my hair! The price is marvelous! I use the Smoothie along with the Shampoo (curl enhancing one) and I am in love. I will never twist again without my Shea Moisture Smoothie!!! =)

    5 Stars?? Why???
    Because this S*&^ ROCKSSSSSSS!!!!.

    First let me say that every product that I've tried (whether for skin or hair) from Shea Moisture, i've been completely satisfied with.

    I never knew what my hair loved, until I tried Shea Moisture's line. All natural ingredients and it delivers. This Smoothie works great on my wet or damp hair. I did not like too much on my dry hair (I use the Curl Milk for that). This Smoothie provides shine, moisture, light-med hold, while produces soft touchable curls. You will not get a crunchy feeling from using this. The smell is yummy, the packaging is simple, yet intriguing.

    I would recommend this over and over again.

    I heart Shea Moisture. Where have you been all my life?? <Hugs>

    This gets 5 curls b/c it is inexpensive and delivers! I use it as a leave in moisturizer after washing and a daily moisturizer. I tried making my own shea mixes but i prefer just to use this. It is not good for hold for my styles but to MOISTURIZE before i style

    This is the best thing running!! I've used it on my hair wet and dry. It defines my curls, keeps my hair moist, and bouncy. I completely love it!! This is now a staple product of mine.

    I love this product, it tames my curls and keeps them soft with hardly any frizz. It defines my curls so nicely and gives them that little bounce without that annoying crunch.

    I am in LOVE with SheaMoisture's Curl Enhancing Smoothie!!!! I've used it when I started transitioning and have continued to use it with my natural hair. It really makes my hair soft. My hair absorbs it and loves it. The price is perfect compared to other brands and it is a wonderful product. A necessary addition to your product staples.

    I absolutely love this stuff. I have used in a variety of ways as a deep treatment, mixed with the curl milk as a rinse out, as a leave in, and on 2nd day hair. It keeps my porous hair from drying out, provides great clumping, and smells fantastic! My hair is normal/fine and can get weighed down, but I have had no problems with this weighing me down, unless I use just way too much.

    I love this products its the best i have 3b curls and its just so fantastic. i can even find it at walgreens which is a big plus because i have one walking distance from where i live so thats 2 curls. the other 3 are for how good it smells and how well it works. its organic as well i love that. its so soft and has enough texture that it can hold my hair with a little bit of mousse. ive been looking for a product that i can use as a base. not to expensive and smells great. miss jessies curling pudding is wayy out of my budget. when i saw this i knew it was a keeper .this has it all. all natural , moisturizes, smells good, and cheap. i couldnt believe it was only $10. wow. it leaves my hair soft and bouncy and curls defined. i will deff go back and try out the other products in this line. and ive gotten sooo many complements on my hair everytime i use it.

    Another amazing product for my thick , dry 3B/3C shoulder length curls . My hair seems to love all of the ingredients in this one , for my hair is very defined and moisturized after using this on top of Kinky Curly Knot Today OR any other good leave in . Reason for the 4 stars ? I'm not too crazy about the smell ... I wish the smell was more coconuty (my favorite scent) , then it would have definetly been a HIT with me :)

    I have 4B/4C hair so it's super hard for me to get curl and keep moisture. I thought i was in heaven when I found an all natural product for my hair. This product should really cost at least double the money if you made a 12 oz jar with the ingredients they have. The price alone is worth one star. I chose that mainly for moisture. I have a kinky twa that about three in. long so I don't have curls to elongate yet. I used the smoothie in conjunction with the deep treatment masque to do my twists. My twist out was amazing! I had soft defined curls. The best thing was that my hair actually got curlier as the day went on instead of just becoming frizzy. I just used this with coconut oil to seal my ends and i can rock a twist out for days with my hair getting dry. The only reason it gets four curls is because I don't really get curls with it if i just did a wash n go. Maybe if my hair was shorter or less thick, it would work perfectly.

    Absolutely Wonderful product!!!!!! Smells amazing...It's thick so not only do you not need a lot...but it's heavy enough to elongate my curls...(I have really springy curls) This is my #1 staple. Affordable and absolutely fantastic!

    This product is pretty good, the scent is divine. It does moisturize my hair but it doesn't do much for hold. I have to use in conjunction with a styler if I want my hair to be well defined.

    My hair loves this stuff!!! I use it for twist outs/twists and it leaves my hair soft and touchable..That is out of the norm for my hair.. With other products my hair feels dry and brittle within a week..well not this product!! moisture! moisture! moisture!! now a part of my weekly regimen..

    I got this at Walgreens during their Buy One/Get One Free sale on Shea Moisture products. I've tried the Curl and Style Milk and other Shea Moisutre Productes and I just love them. So I thought I'd give this a shot and I have to say I was pretty disappointed. I'm not sure what ingredient caused it, but the product left my hair feeling dry immediantly after I applied it to soaking wet hair after a deep conditioner. It felt like it actually stripped m hair. My hair felt like straw and it even had a crunch to it (while still wet). I jumped right back into the shower and co-washed with Shea Moisture Raw Shea Butter Restorative Conditioner (did the trick!!). The reason why I gave this two curls is because I actually like the smell. Other than that, it just didn't do anyhting for my curls.

    This product gave my 3b curls good definition without the crunch and I love the smell and the price! The reason why I'm awarding only 3 stars is because it did nothing to eliminate my "frizzy halo". Interested to test out the rest of the product line...

    Posted by l.deon (Type 3b) on 05/16/2011

    I just bought the smoothie at Walgreens yesterday for $10.00. That accessibility and cost is worth one star already. Now, the additional 4 stars are added because this product did exactly as it said and more for my 3B, heat damaged hair! I got shine, definition, softeness and love for my curls again. The damage I got from a salon flat ironing experience left my hair dry, frizzy and undefined. This magical product brought my curls back!

    Posted by CassidyB (Type 3a) on 05/05/2011

    Great product! I have 2b/3b/3a curls and this product gives me great definition with ZERO crunch. I use it over the curl milk and it leaves my hair velvety soft and very defined. I found that this product works best for me if I wash at night (and apply curl milk or other leave-in), re-wet in the morning, and then apply the smoothie. You only need a small amount, so for the price this product is a downright steal!

    Posted by adthomas (Type 4a) on 05/03/2011

    I don't find this product very moisturizing. Milk does better for me. I started using it just on my ends to keep frizz down and it seems to work well like that.

    Does for me just what it says it'll do. Enhances and defines and I love it a lot! So far only used it over the milk, but looking forward to trying with other leave ins or by itself of as a dc/rinse out. Seems it could be versatile.

    Posted by g donya (Type 4a) on 04/08/2011

    4/a. It just didn't work for me. It did not define my curls. I love the smell and my hair was soft the first day. The 2nd day my hair was a crunchy mess and i only used a quarter size before i twisted for a twist out. I also used this on my daughter's 4c hair and it left a film. I could have used too much on her hair.

    Posted by SanaxRadiance (Type 3c) on 03/20/2011

    i cant' really decide if i like this...it doesn't really define my curls. i think i have 3c hair..
    the product smells great, but doesn't really work for me :(
    using it by itself doesn't do anything, but it might work with a good gel.
    it was only $9.99 at Target, so i'll keep trying it out, maybe it'll start working for me.

    I can't believe it... This is the BEST curl definer/styler/leave in I have ever used!!!! I love the fact it is organic and smells absolutely fantastic!!! Not too mention it is very affordable only 9.99 at Target! This is my new HOLY GRAIL!!! (SN: I used this product on wet hair for easy distribution)

    Posted by bknaturally (Type 3b) on 03/08/2011

    Let me start by saying that I'm a tough critic. I have combination 2b/3a/3b hair. Yeah, it's a little crazy. Anyway, I expect a lot from my products and this one did not disappoint. At first, I was put off by the smell. Why do products for black hair tend to smell like synthetic pina colada or fruit salad? Given that I didn't spend much on the jar ($9.99 @ Target), I decided to go ahead and try it anyway and I was pleasantly surprised. The fragrance dies down within minutes and while your hair smells slightly sweet/slightly shea-like, it's a light fragrance. I love that it's thick without being weighty and it moisturizes without being greasy...at all! That's a huge plus for me. It's easy to rinse out and my hair doesn't feel all "producty" after a few days of use. I also use it on my pre-schooler's incredibly curly hair. I'm particular about the products I use on her hair, but I really like this one and feel like it's clean enough and pure enough to use on her hair everyday. Run, don't walk and stock up because Target sucks at keeping it in stock. Just bought two and put them in reserve. Oh, and combining this with TIGI's Catwalk Curls Rock Curl Amplifier did the trick. Great hold, definition, shiny. With this combo, I can sometimes get 3rd day hair, 4th day if you count a messy bun.

    I have very thick, spiral curled hair (3c-4a). My HG is KCCC, but I'm always looking for something better. This creme is pretty good! It has a thick consistency and is white. I always us KC Knot Today as a leave-in which keeps my hair moisturized, but this smoothie took it to the next level in softness. My curls looked and felt very soft and it left my hair defined and not looking like a cloud. It loses a star because to keep this affect I have to reapply it --the softness remained, the definition did not. Got it at Target for $10 so is def a keeper.

    SheaMoisture's Curl Enhancing Smoothie is a staple in my regimen. I like the thick consistency of the product. And even though the consistency is thick the product feels very light-weight. It leaves your hair feeling soft, shiny, and it smells good.

    I personally don't LOVE it for myself but it works well on my girls. For me I've had the most success using it on dry hair and working it through as I'm untwisting. I just didn't like the way it felt going on with wet/damp hair.

    Plus side, my hair does seem a little softer and I can use this without using a gel. It is fine but just not the WOW I was expecting from the product. I do love the smell though and again will use it because I don't need to use a gel behind it and it's good for my girls.

    This product came after many attempts at gaining a moisturizer. I love this product. What a relief! I love the smell, the application & the end result. The only issue is you have to rub it in completely for you to see the beautiful effects of it all.

    I am a type 4 with coils and I love this product! Even though it doesn't define and hold my curls (like a gel would for type 4) it is great for my twist outs. It smells great, it's organic and it moisturizes well! It has benefits for any hair type!

    3a/b/c curls
    The image is not of the exact product, however I love SheaMOisture coconut & hibiscux curl enhancing smoothie! I've layered it with other leave ins and used it as a styler instead of a moisturizer...it really works for me! I was very suprised that it had any hold because it has no crunch or anything...I find that it works best on Damp Hair...wet hair is great also but took alil while to dry and I kept waiting for it to poof, but if didnt..=)
    I wouldnt use it on dry hair cuz the scent lingers too long and was irritating...however if your hair is damp the still soaks up the smoothie and the scent goes away after a while...really one of the best products i've used that didnt need a gel/mousse/spray,etc. Looking forward to tring the rest of the product line=)

    I love this product.. Gives great definition, shine, moisture, and bounce to my mixture of curls which is 3a/3b/3c. I use this product for a styler when doing my two strand twist outs and I must say that I am able to get 4 day hair with this stuff. At night I just rewet my hair untwist in the morning and the look is still there. Love this!!!

    My hair is more of a coarse texture, so my hair soaked up this stuff like a sponge. It smelled good, but it didn't give my hair much moisture. My curls were not defined, but they definitely were soft! I had more of a poofy curl rather than a defined curl, not my kinda stuff.
    ...on to the next one!

    This does little for my 4a curls. With this smoothie my hair is stringy, frizzy, and my curls are NOT defined. I went to the Shea Moisture website & they said this can also be used as a deep conditioner. I will use it as such until the jar is empty and will not purchase again. Yes my hair does feel is soft and is moisturized, but for my hair this product is a no-go. (BTW, the hair milk in this same line is awesome!)

    I love this! Great feel, great smell, leaves my hair feeling soft, but defines the curls. Only thing holding me back from 5 curls is that it could use a LITTLE more hold.

    This is definitely the wrong product image that is posted; it clearly says Raw Shea Butter Wash.

    In any event the Coconut and Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie is fabulous!!!! This is my new staple product, knocking MJ-CM down a notch. I started using this a couple months ago and was beyond pleased with my results from day one. Product works great, smells great and the price point is perfect. I purchased at Target for $9.99. Love it!

    I just recently purchased this product and it's great!! I only needed a little bit to two-strand twist my hair and it left it soft, sweet smelling, and defined. I will definitely repurchase!! The only reason I didn't give it 5 curls is because the scent lingers for a loooonnnnngggg time. By the way, wrong product picture and the price is $9.99 at Target.
