This is one of the best products I have ever used for my hair. I cannot attest to it performance as a deep conditioner because I only use it as a leave-in conditioner. A little goes a long way and it makes my super curly/kinky/dry hair so soft and shiny. And it adds definition to my tiny corkscrew curls. Love it.

Very mixed feelings. I got this hoping for some good, deep conditioning. I have long wavy hair - some damage from dying and bleaching, but relatively healthy. When I first scooped the stuff out of the jar I was really excited by the texture. It felt thick and buttery. I had such high hopes!

I tried a little bit as a leave-in for my ends. Nope. Gross. Felt sticky. I tried it post-shampooing, left on for 10 minutes and rinsed. No sticky feeling, but not the smoothing effects I hoped for. My hair feels healthy, but not soft and smooth. The smell is pleasant, but if you don't like strong smells in your hair products you might be a little turned off by this. The smell sticks around for a REALLY long time (it gets on your towel, on your clothes, on your pillowcase, etc).

I'm a little bit sad that this didn't live up to my expectations. I'll still try other products from the brand, though.

Need to Shampoo & Condition Afterward

      Comments about SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter Deep Treatment Masque, 12 Ounces:

      With its great ingredients, I feel that this masque strengthens hair. However, it provides no softness or slip. If you're going to use this, you have to shampoo & condition afterward, just like you'd have to do if you did a mayonnaise or raw egg/olive oil masque at home.

        I have mixed feelings about this product. At first I loved it, however since my texture seems to have changed a bit, it doesn't work as well for me anymore. I find my hair isn't as moisturized as it used to be.

        When I use this conditioner, I would mix it with honey and EVOO, then I would put on a showercap. Sometimes I would go under the dryer, but normally I would just walk around and keep it in for at least twenty minutes and then I would wash it out. When it did agree with my hair (which was in the shorter stages), it worked well. But as my hair is much longer (almost waist length) now it is not my favourite anymore.

        I am giving it four stars because when my hair loved it, it was very soft and manageable.

        Not really a masque

            If you're looking for a thick masque, this is not it. It appears thick but it goes on thin, and it's hard to know if you're using enough. It doesn't really feel like it's replenishing any moisture.

              I bought this product along with the co-wash and leave in conditioner. This product is thicker and has a natural shea butter smell which I am not that fond of. I was willing to overlook the natural smell if the product worked as described but it did not. For as heavy as the product is you would think it would've been more moisturizing but it was not. The Pantene pro-v dark and lovely conditioner works better in my opinion at half the cost.

                  This was just okay. I didn't find it as moisturizing as I expected for a "deep treatment." It performed like a regular conditioner. I also did NOT like the smell. I bought Neutrogena Triple Moisture Deep Recovery Hair Mask at the same time and prefer that. It's much richer and more hydrating. Overall, save your money and buy the Neutrogena.

                    The first time I used this, I did an overnight treatment and my hair felt sort of coarse and coated. But I also noticed less breakage during the week and less frizz. So what I do now is measure out some in a separate container and add olive oil. Now when I rinse it out it my hair feels much better and still get the benefits of it. This is now part of my regular deep conditioning retinue every 2 weeks. Well worth the price.

                      I got this because I don't like to use conditioner everyday. I use this once a week and the conditioning really lasts. It is thick like custard but doesn't feel heavy or greasy. I would purchase this again.

                          Intense Shea Butter, Natural Oils & Emulsifying Waxes in this formula, condition my hair like no other product ever! I'm in my 40's, curly hair, color it (b/c I have a lot of grey roots), I've tried a vast selection of: Drugstore brands, Everyday salon brands, & the pricier "niche" hair care brands. No need to overspend anymore- This masque is by far the best! Distributes through hair very easily, smooth & slippery. (I brush it through when wet). Too greasy to just "rinse out"- I must use it as a pre-shampoo treatment. I leave it in for 10 min's or so while I shave my legs, & then shampoo it out. It's waaa-hay to greasy, to just rinse out- Must be shampooed out.

                          Also note: This is a silicone-free conditioner(!) Silicones are synthetic oils, that frizz my curly hair horribly, & can take months to eliminate a single application- Silicones are in ~ 95% of all hair care products. It's really hard to find hair products without silicone at all. That alone is a major plus!

                          Just as other reviewers have noted, the smell is intense/overpowering (bad), but, thankfully, disappears after lathering w/ shampoo- My hair is left beautifully conditioned, super soft, shiny, elastic, pliable, "swing-ey", bouncy, & easily brushable (manageable). Amazing product!

                            First- SILICONE FREE !!! YEAH !!! WOW this is Shea Butter w/ NATURAL Oils & Emulsifying Wax (which is what allows us to spread the product through our hair, vs. sitting there like a blob of Oil)- The emulsifying wax also helps the Conditioner to adhere to your hair after washing / rinsing. Yes, so you noticed I said "after WASHING / rinsing" ? Well, this is SO intensely conditioning (greasy / waxy), that it absolutely MUST be shampoo'ed out- I use it as a pre-shampoo treatment, brushing it through, concentrating on the ends of my hair.

                            Again- ZERO Silicone (Silicones are lightweight synthetic oils, in EVERYTHING now, from motor oil, to airplane grease, to nearly EVERY hair care product on the market, claiming to "tame frizz" and / or "lock in smoothness", but INSTEAD, instantly OVER-SOFTENS my naturally curly/frizzy hair, into a GIANT FRIZZ-BALL!) Usually labeled "Dimethicone" or "Methylchlorizazinone", or anything ending in "cone" or "zone" etc. Once a single drop of a silicone oil gets in my hair, it can take MONTHS to remove it!

                            In contrast, this natural, silicone-FREE Shea Butter, Oils & Wax treatment, does the exact OPPOSITE- Does what I WANT it to do: Eliminates Frizz! Leaves curl & body, but just gets rid of that "damaged" look & feel. Let me also mention, that I am Caucasian, I am not accustomed to using ethnic product in my hair- A boyfriend teased me horribly for doing so, & for some reason, I let that (jerk) influence me- This is an EPIC Masterpiece deep conditioning mask! By all means, if your hair is damaged from coloring, chemical processing, and/or just over-blowdrying & straightening, let this magic potion HEAL your hair!

                            Too intense for every-shampoo use. But great every 2nd-3rd shampoo or so! (The conditioning seems to last through multiple shampoos). I highly recommend! BEST product I've EVER used! PS- I shampoo out with a gentle, Shea Butter shampoo, concentrating the lather at my roots- But not this brand of Shea Butter Shampoo- (Which is more of a cleansing conditioner.)
