My daily routine consists of co-washing with Aussie’s Moist Conditioner (using a shower comb to detangle). I shampoo my hair about once a week depending on whether or not my product leaves a lot of residue or buildup. Parting my hair into 4 sections I applied the Shea Moisture product and quickly realized that I was going to have to use something else to help my thick frizzy curls. So I applied Granier Fructis Curl Sculpting Gel for frizz control and let my hair air dry. Here are the results:
The Shea Moisture smells wonderful and left my hair feeling so soft and natural. However, my curls weren’t as defined as I would have liked and my hair was a little poofy. I used the product for an entire week and would use it again. Maybe next time I’ll try it in conjuction with another frizz control product for better results.

· Reasonably priced at $9.99 for a 12oz jar
· Not a stand alone product
· Doesn’t help too much with frizz
