Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie

I would probably describe the scent as somewhat tropical.  I think it smells wonderful.

This is creamy and light.  It's very easy to apply.

I liked the fact that they list what each ingredient does for your hair!

I wasn't expecting to find any quality products for C's hair at Walgreens, but I found myself in the hair products aisle so I decided to look anyway.
I saw a line of Shea Moisture Organic Coconut and Hibiscus products- the word 'organic' caught my eye!  I decided to try 2 of them... The Curl Enhancing Smoothie, and also the Curl & Style Hair Milk (review on that coming soon!)

*So far we have only used this twice so I might do a 2nd. review later, but I'm thinking this is something I might want to buy again!  I've been having such a struggle with finding a quality product for C's hair that I was ready to give up and go back to using whatever cheap things I could buy at Wal Mart or somewhere.  BUT since I found something organic that I don't have to buy online, I'm hoping I've found a way around that!  :)

Anyway, I used this on C's damp hair.  Whenever I try a new moisturizer or anything that is supposed to enhance curls, I like to leave C's hair down to put it to the ultimate test.

C with her pumpkin she painted at the fundraiser :)

This isn't the best example, sorry!  We were at a fundraiser and I was too busy to stop and get pictures, but I got this one from my Aunt.
After a long day of running, jumping in bouncy houses, playing with farm animals, games and more C's hair still looked pretty good.  Her hair was big with lots of shrinkage, but I expect that and that's ok!
C's hair still had lots of definition, even though she had some frizzing going on which you can see here.  When I got an up close look, C's hair looked moisturized- that's all I can ask for!

Like I said, I might do another review later since we've only used this product twice, but so far I like it!
Have you tried this Curl Enhancing Smoothie or any of the other Shea Moisture products, and if so did you like them?


  1. Her hair looks great! I've heard a lot of really great things about these product. I will definitively be trying this out soon :)

  2. Thanks for the review! I might have to try it...I have the Curl & Style Milk, but it doesn't really seem to do much for us. So I have been wanting to try the Smoothie. I just get SO tired of spending money trying new products!!!

  3. Oh my goodness! Her hair looks great, even after all that running around! I've tried the deep masque treatment and loved what it did for my daughter's hair--you should def pick that one up, too

  4. Uhh, I beg to differ... this is the best example!! Her hair looks beauuuuuutiful!

  5. I actually love Walgreens, lol. The Curl Smoothie is too heavy for D, the style milk was alright for her, but it works much better for Daddy, he uses the style milk daily. He also uses the Shea Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner
