|Shea Moisture's Curl & Style Milk|
for Thick, Curly Hair
Now remember, my guidelines are the following:
- It has to be affordable (the amount vs. the price)
- It needs to be easily accessible (if I can get it locally this is a plus)
- It has to work for my hair (kinky, curly), my husbands' straight hair (in most cases) and our kids' 3b/3c curly hair
For my hair which is a 4a/4b texture, I was really happy with how soft my hair felt after using it. My hair definitely felt moisturized and more manageable. Another plus was how much softer my hair felt when I used it under my Olive Oil Eco Styler Gel. The only thing I didn't like is how fast I was going through the product. We were already halfway through the bottle after a little over 1 week. Once I saw this, I started to reach for my Palmers Coconut Oil Replinishing Hair Milk instead in order to save on this product.
Overall, I think the Shea Moisture Curl & Style Milk is great as a leave-in type moisturizer that makes the hair soft and manageable. However, I have achieved similar results by using my Aloe Vera/ Leave-in Conditioner spray and sealing with oil. Follow that with the Palmer's to make the curls pop and I'm good to go. I probably won't purchase this product again based on the little amount you get for the price. I'm happiest with products that work for all of us and our different textures so getting more for less is a huge factor. Still it's worth a try if you're looking for a good water based moisturizer and the price falls within your budget.
