"Naturally Curly's Editor's Choice 2015" "Curl Box Winner 2015" Allure's Reader's Choice 2015"
These are the medallions you are met with once you land on the product page. It is currently sold out on Shea Moisture's website, and I can understand why!
When I first tired their Curl Enhancing Smoothie, my hair was extremely damaged from color. I was in denial, and thought how can color be so harmful? It takes a toll--and I didn't understand the structural integrity of my hair. When I used the smoothie, I wasn't crazy about the results as I felt it didn't provide enough hold. Fast forward 2/3 years later, where I completely grew out the color. I the great feedback for the smoothie didn't stop, and I decided to give it another try.
First off, I was BLOWN AWAY! I was not expecting the cream to give my hair the spiral power it did. I was thrilled and confused at the same time--why didn't it work like this years ago? That's when I decided to I finally take porosity test, and I discovered the reason behind my success.
I have low-porous hair, which means that it repels moisture. My hair cuticle lays flat, and the stubborn scales won't let moisture in! The Curl Enhancing Smoothie is chock full of humectants like glycerin, that attract moisture. Because my hair is super dry, not only does the cream moisturize, but it defines and cuts down the frizz. When my hair was colored, it was highly porous from damage. The cuticle had tons of holes and lifted scales, which made it difficult for moisture to stay in or out! Sealing ingredients performed best, and that probably explains why I favored gels over creams at the time. Here are some close-ups from applying the smoothie on the first day--
Do you see those corkscrews?! Unbelievable! The best thing--it only costs $12.99 for 12 ounces! That is beyond economical, and you can slap on however much you want with the upmost peace of mind!
I applied in huge sections, as I like the keep my wash n' go's fast! As moisturizing as the formula is, it does not leave a greasy film. My hair looks shiny, bouncy, and it's soft! I am beyond pleased with this product, and I will happily continue using it!
