Product Review: SheaMoisture Organic Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo & SheaMoisture Organic Raw Shea Butter Restorative Conditioner©

I absolutely love organic all natural products!

Whether it’s for hair, skin, face, body, food, etc., I love it!

Not to say that I don’t or won’t use anything that isn’t organic or all natural, because I do. BUT in general, I usually lean toward organic all natural products!

Being a naturalista: a female with “au naturel” hair (french for natural) , I research different products, styles, and hair care techniques for au naturel hair care. In my researching, I came across an organic all-natural hair care product with certified organic ingredients called SheaMoisture®.

First let me give you a little history about the SheaMoisture® product:

Per it’s packaging,

Established in 1912 by Sofi Tucker

Sophi Tucker started selling shea nuts at the village market in Bonthe, Sierra Leone

By the age of 19, a widowed mother of four

Sold shea butter, black soap and homemade hair and skin preparations all over the countryside.

Her grandchildren now carried on her legacy by providing consumers with certified organic products and certified organic skin care products.

Isn’t that great! I just love the entrepreneurial spirit that Sofi Tucker had! I totally identify with her entreprenuialism.

Here’s what I tried from the SheaMoisture® product line:





These two products are for dry, damaged hair and work to heal, grow, and strengthen hair.

I have naturally curly hair. SheaMoisture® supplies a certified organic product geared towards curly hair, however, I chose the Organic Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo & the Restorative Conditioner because I LOVE SHEA BUTTER!

Shea butter is an excellent moisturizer for my hair. I was already using a shampoo and conditioner (I will do another review detailing the brand) that had shea butter in it and wanted to continue with the cycle of using it in my hair. Needless to say, the SheaMoisture® Organic Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention & Restorative products work great in my hair. I am pleased with the results.

Per it’s packaging,

SheaMoisture® has NO:





(I didn’t know gluten was used in hair products.)



Mineral Oil

Synthetic Fragrance

Animal Testing


Synthetic Color


Animal Ingredients


Isn’t that great!

SheaMoisture®  has:

Sea Kelp

Argan Oil

Shea Butter,

My Results

When I first used the shampoo, I noticed the difference in the way it lathered up, the reason being it doesn’t contain the sulfates and other ingredients like other non-organic – unnatural products do. It definitely smells great, which is a plus, and it gently and thoroughly cleanses the hair.

With the conditioner, I am used to using creamier – heavier conditioners in my hair, therefore, I am adjusting to the lightweight feel of the conditioner. However, it works great and can be used as a leave-in conditioner and aids in the detangling process. I used it as a leave-in conditioner when I wore the Wash and Go style (See pic below.)

Last but not least, you are probably wondering how much does this product cost and is it worth it! Let me ease your suspense and quench your curiosity by telling you in comparison to similar products on the market today it is inexpensive but well worth it’s price of $9.99! Yes, $9.99 a piece for the shampoo and the conditioner. (Prices may be different at the time of reading this post.) You can find SheaMoisture® products in your local Target Store or order online at SheaMoisture®

I would highly recommend SheaMoisture® products and if the Lord wills, we shall live, look forward to trying the rest of their product line. Be sure to check out the pics below and leave your questions and comments as well!

Au Naturel Rocks!

  1. Yes!!! I absolutly LOVE these products!!! I’m 6 months natural and during the begining of me journey, I used Giovanni Smooth as Silk shampoo and conditioner, but those didn’t work out to well for me( I have 4b hair). I tried Shea Moisture Raw Shea Butter shampoo and conditioner and fell in LOVE!!! – Great website by the way. Stay naturally lovely:)


  2. Would i be able ti use it on dry and wet hair as a moisturizer ?
    If there are any other ways i can use this product please let me know.
    p.s. I just purchased this product today and im not so sure how to use it .


    • The above review was on Shea Moisture’s Organic Raw Shea Butter Shampoo and Restorative Conditioner. It’s not a styling agent/product. Once using the shampoo and conditioner, you can style your hair anyway you choose. In the pics, I used the Eco Style Olive-Oil Gel in combination with the Restorative Conditioner. Fingered the products through my hair and the curls were the end result.

      Shea Moisture does offer products that aid in styling your hair. Check them out at


  3. My girl friend gave me a box set of shampoo and conditioner. Sitting in the tub without my glassess on, I read the story of Sofi and thought, “wow, funny lady, actress and inventer. Then put my glasses on. Oh, wrong Sophie Tucker, but great hair product. Made my hair feel soft and shiney. Thank you Miss Sofi and family.


  4. I could be a spokes woman! REALLY! I swear by it……My husband&I go on missions looking for Sofi Tucker. Please help us find a place to get all thr products. Thank you very much. Gil&Sue Zaris


    • I personally haven’t tried the deep masque. Their products are good. I would suggest trying it and seeing if it works well with your hair. Everyone’s hair is different and sometimes receive different results.


  5. I just recently bought the Shea moisture African black soap. Are there any suggestions or comments (anything I need to do or not to do before using it please let me know.

    May God Bless


    • Hello Ms. Jones,

      Thank you for contacting me. I haven’t tried SheaMoisture’s African Black Soap Shampoo or Conditioner. I wouldn’t be able to offer any suggestions or comments about anything you should or shouldn’t do before using it. I have used their African Black Soap facial products and lotion, regularly, without any problems. I would suggest visiting their website at: or their Facebook Page to ask or get suggestions about their African Black Soap Shampoo and Conditioner.

      God bless you as well,

    • Hello Gwen,

      If you have a Target in Oakland, California, you might be able to find SheaMoisture products there. Here in Flint, Michigan, I purchased these products from one of our local Target stores. Product availability may vary by demographics, they might not have this particular SheaMoisture product in your area. You can always visit their website at: to find out where you can purchase this particular product in your area or if it’s available, purchase it directly from SheaMoisture at the website. 🙂
