Review: Shea Moistire Curling Gel Souffle

Shea Moisture Curling Gel Soufflé
 I’m back again with another Shea Moisture product review, this time focusing on the Curling Gel Souffle. I’ve heard a lot of mixed reviews on this product, and to be honest I’m not sure how I feel about this product because I haven’t used it much. So, this is more of a first impression rather than a full review.

What is it?
This would be considered a gel, and it is also a part of the Coconut and Hibiscus line. It is supposed to help keep away frizz, keep in moisture, and shine.

How do I use it?
You use it as a curl definer. So you can apply it to wet hair and let it dry for a wash and go. Or you can also use it to set your twists, to make sure they are shiny and defined.

What I liked about it:
The smell: it smells just like the Curl Enhancing Smoothie, which I love.
The ingredients: this is an all natural gel, so there is no alcohol or any of those nasty ingedients that are found in regular gel.

What I didn’t like:

A lot of people complain that they don’t like the consistency, and I can understand why. When I first got it, it was not a gel like consistency; it was more of a liquid, and your hands get sticky after using it. However, I came up with a solution.

Tip for making it like a gel:
A few weeks ago there was a heat wave, and I was afraid my hair products would melt because most of them are all natural, so I put them in the fridge. After the heat wave, I took out the curling gel soufflé and when I touched it, it was a gel like consistency!

Would I purchase again?

I’m not sure

Review: Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie

Today I am going to share with you a product from a line I’ve heard so much about and have wanted to try for a long time – Shea Moisture!
On a recent trip to Sally, I went to buy some hair products because at that time my hair was straight, and I was ready to wash it. I ended up getting a few products, but today I will focus on the Curl Enhancing Smoothie.

What is it? This is a leave in from the Coconut & Hibiscus Line, which is meant for thick, curly hair and it helps with moisture, body, and shine. Also, it is made with all natural ingredients: coconut oil, silk protein, and neem oil, to name a few.
How do I use it?
You apply it to damp or styled hair to enhance curls, and minimize frizz. A lot of people, (including me) use it after washing hair on twists to get a great twist out.

What I liked about it?
The smell! I’m not a huge coconut person, but I just love this smell. I’m even considering getting the body wash in this scent.
The Price: it’s $12.99 for 12 oz, which for an all-natural hair product, that is a great price. I know of some 4 oz products that cost $12.99, and a little goes a long way
The availability:
The Shea Moisture line is available at Walgreens, Target, CVS, Walmart, and online and I like that if I ever ran out, I can easily purchase it.

What I didn’t like:
The packaging says you can apply it to styled hair, but I found it worked better when my hair was damp.

Would I purchase again?Yes
