I am currently using the Shea Moisture line of natural hair products. First I must say this is the only line where I am pleased with more than one product in the line. Also I am impressed with amount of natural ingredients in their products and are actually in the top 5 of the ingredient list.
In this review I will go through the products in the order that I use them. I will also list the first 4 ingredients because ingredients are listed in order of volume. Meaning if water is the first ingredient then product has more water than any other ingredient.

How I use it - Apply to damp hair in four sections as a pre-poo treatment. Allow penetrate for 15 - 30 minutes then de-tangle.
