Reviews For Shea Butter Curl Activating Cream

Based on 5 Reviews


I have long, thin, dry, curly/wavy hair, with a moderate amount of frizz. Reading the reviews I was pretty sure this would be too heavy for me, but its shockingly not!

This is the perfect product for a natural frizz free look, and its added a good amount of shine to my dry hair. The fact that its full of natural goodness, vegan, and not tested on animals really makes this one stand out!

Great product

I have extremely naturally curly hair and this product does really well for defining those curls without weighing them down. I find it works best if I scrunch it in and let it air dry for 15-20 minutes before drying with a diffuser blow dryer. I also add just a smidge of argon oil throughout after I dry it to keep any frizzies down and provide shine.

I was really happy this worked and that I was able to take one more chemical filled H&B item off my list.

Smells wonderful

I really liked the smell of this cream! To be honest, I thought this was a bit too heavy for my thick, curly hair... But for a specific look, it works well! They are still nice lose curls! I know how hard it is to find the perfect natural curly hair products! This is a pretty good one :)

- Brooke

Comparable to Moroccan Oil Curling Cream!

If you want natural looking, soft (non-crunchy) curls, this one's for you. At first the scent seems strong but once its on your hair it is just the right amount.

Outstanding product and company!

I love this product line! Very nice results, and a high social awareness component so you can feel good about giving them your dollars. No animal testing, cruelty free & a portion of your dollars will go towards charities worthy of supporting.
