since using this product my hair has been EXTREMELY soft. However to use this product your hair must be soaking wet and a little goes a long way (im a bit heavy handed) if u use too much itll be a greasy feeling to your hair. The only reason it 4 curls is because it doesnt detangle well i have thick coarse 4b hair

I love this product line of Shea Moisture. I have had positive experiences with all of the products in this line that I have tried so far and this one was no exception! The slip isn't the greatest for me(YMMV) but is better than most. What sold me on this product was the moisture! My curls are soft, bouncy, and moisturized every time I use this product. My 3c curls are not as frizzy anymore since I have added this product to my regimen. (Living in my part of the midwest frizz is a CONSTANT battle)

This is my JAMMMMMMMM! OMG this is best leave in conditioner ever made...I will never be without it. When I did the big chop I was struggling with dry hair...but with continued use of this leave in...I don't have that issue anymore...I just love it..there aren't enough to words to express my deep love for this product.

Top 3 on my leave in's. This beats Kinky Curly in moisture, my hair is left incredibly soft & tangle free.

Randomly saw this in the store and picked it up. When I saw the ingredients in the back, I had no expectations about its actual detangling ability (which really isn't a worry for me since I detangle WAAAAAY before using this product) but it looked like a really nice leave in so I bought it.
I can't speak for other ladies in the 4s, but this was AMAZING!! It felt nice and soft going into my hair and it helped to melt down the little tangles I had left, great moisturizer and (well, I think it's a) great detangler! Love it. New HG product for me!

I really love this product I have 3B hair. At fist I apply this product on damp hair and was horrible. But the second time I used it in soaking wet hair and was WONDERFULL I looooove it. And Detangle my hair perfectly. I use it when I want more moisture that my Kinky Curly Knot Today give me.

I am surprised at the reviews because I love this product! I was bad to my hair this past winter, coloring it a bunch of times, and this is the product that saved it. Well, this plus deep conditioners, but the conditioners alone were not enough to detangle the parched, porous mess I had. When my hair is healthier, this can double as leave-in and styler for me. Plus I can find it in my local stores, which is always a bonus.

When a product has "detangler" in the name, I usually assume it will have some type of slip, at least if it's targeted towards natural hair. This product doesn't have slip, however the oiliness of the product did make it easier to pull apart tangles and knots, so it's not a detangler in the traditional since, but it does have detangling properties. However, I use this more as a moisturizer than a detangler. This product is pretty oily upon application, however I find that by the next day most of the oiliness is gone. Overall, I enjoy this product. I don't use it often, and many might be turned off by it's lack of slip and oiliness, but it works for me.

It left my hair really greasy, and that is really hard for me because I have really porous hair. My hair usually sucks everything up like a sponge. I just thing that SheaMoisture has really stretched themselves too thin. they need to get focused.

This product is a really great leave in. You have go put it in soaking wrt hair like the instructions say. If you put it in damp hair it can be a little sticky, but goes away when hair dries! The consistency is similar to KCKT, but a little stickier. All in all a great product!! Not too heavy for fine thin hair :)

I purchased this product with high hopes since Shea Moisture is my go-to brand. This product, however, is not one I would not consider to be a "detangler" for 4c hair, or any in the 4 category. My hair felt moisturized with this product, but I still had to reach for my aloe vera gel to assist with the detangling aspect.
