Best Shea Moisture Shampoo?

pinkmouse09pinkmouse09 Posts: 107Registered Users
I'm trying to decide which I will buy. I currently use the curl and style milk and curl enhancing smoothie, but wondering if you all like any of the shampoos?

My priority right now is to reduce breakage and promote stronger hair!

    I personally liked the Coconut & Hibiscus 100x better than the Moisture Retention. Haven't tried the Yucca, and the Tahitian Noni & Monoi smells amazing but made my hair super limp (it says it has "straightening" ingredients in it).

    If you want to strenghten your hair, proteïn is probably the way to go. In the coconut& hibiscus line is proteïn, even so in the Yucca&Baobab. As far as I know, there is no proteïn in the Moisture Retention one. I only tried the c&b one, and liked it a lot.

    According your signature you have medium thickness, but I think according your picture you have fine strands. Your hair looks very much like mine. Fine hair needs in general more proteïn than coarser hair (exceptions there of course).

    If your hair is breaking really easily, you could possibly try to use the co-wash method together with washing with low-poo. For example, once a week low-poo wash and twice a week co-washing. This is a little bit more gentle for your hair than washing always with (low-)poo.

    Why do you think you have breakage?

    edit: the two products you are already using from the SM C&H line have proteïn in it
    highlighted 3a hair. Fine strands, medium to high density. Probably high porosity. Growing uit bad layering and aiming for waist lenght!

    I've only ever tried the Coconut & Hibiscus shampoo from SM, but I love it. It's my go-to shampoo and I use it basically every time I wash my hair.

    It's REALLY moisturising, but also really cleansing, so it's the best of both worlds. Also, it contains protein which is great for strengthening hair.

    Like I said, I haven't tried any of the others, so I can't really say whether they're good or bad. But it seems, from what I've read on these boards, that people have quite mixed results with the Moisture Retention shampoo and, overall, the Coconut & Hibiscus comes out on top.

    That's just my two cents though :)
