Thoughts on Shea Moisture?

Mimee03Mimee03 Posts: 190Registered Users
I have fine, thin hair that gets weighed down easily. I saw Susanna's video about the Shea Moisture line. She said it makes her hair thicker and the pictures of her hair looked great. I was wondering if anyone tried their products and what they thought of them. Thanks ladies!

Hair type: 2a/2b. Fine texture, normal porosity, normal elasticity.

    I use Shea moisture yucca & baoboa line which is their thickening growth line. It has thickened my hair tremendously and it makes my hair super happy!

    Yes here is the link. It was recently sent in a Naturally Curly e-mail even though I had seen it before.

    After going through the video I also decided to use Shea moisture for my hairs...

    I use the SM line quite a bit. I apply a small amount of souffle to my hair when it's dripping wet and then I'll add the smoothie. I'll use a mf towel and blot excess water and air dry.

    My hair is fine and thin (I do have a lot of hair despite this) and it doesn't seem to be weight down by these products. I hit can't use too much.
    CG as of Feb. 2012
    combination hair.
    2c on top - low elasticity
    3a&b scattered underneath - normal elasticity.
    fine texture. thin density. A lot of it.
    porosity: normal to high.
    loves protein and moisture.
    BSACV as needed.

    products may vary. i'm a PJ.

    I actually used both the curly smoothie and souffle along with the anti-breakage masque (as a deep treatment) yesterday. My hair actually has more volume instead of being weighed down, but it cannot get enough moisture.
    CG since 3/2012, Medium Density, Low Elasticity, Porosity (?)

    Products loving my hair:
    Co-Wash/LI/RO: DC One Condition
    Gel: KCCC, BC Curl Enhancing Cream, DC AnGel

    Moisture loving, oil and protein hating (though it tolerates some in products).

    Hello do you use all the line of the product to get a good result or just a few

    Gee's, give me a break. No wonder Suzanne does hair videos. If I had hair as great as her's, (wavy hair is perfect hair,) I'd be doing videos too. Now I'd depressed.
