My Take: This product is the first I've used from Shea Moisture 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! We also used the product on Lo's 4a/b hair and had great results with her as well. In fact, my husband refuses to use anything else in her hair! We are definitely fans and will continue to use this product and look forward to trying more items within the Shea Moisture brand.


  1. I'm a 4a curly, and I LOVE shea moisture! Their products are such a great value for the quality of the ingredients! There are a lot of products with much larger price tags that are full of fillers and alcohols. I've recommended them to everyone that I know, natural or not.

    1. We (I say we, because 9 times out of 10, my hubby does our daughter's 4a/b hair) love it too! We actually got it on a fluke at Target (for some insane reason they had it marked down to $1.98) and fell in love. I like that it adds enough moisture and definition that for me I only have to use it (instead of 2 separate products). For my daughter we usually use Kinky-Curly Knot Today to condition and detangle and then the Shea Moisture to define and add shine! It's the only product I've tried from them so far, but I do want to explore the brand further...
