The description of the shampoo on the bottle says:"Gentle, creamy shampoo formulated with moisturizing, Certified Fair Trade unrefined shea butter, cleansing virgin coconut oil, and anti-oxidant shea leaf extract cleans thoroughly without stripping hair's natural oils. Unscented for sensitive individuals. Carefully formulated for everyday use on all hair types"
My first impression of this shampoo after I first used it was kinda iffy. It comes out kinda gooey and liquidy like really thick hand soap. But like the bottle says, there is no detectable scent, just pure shea butter smell.
After my very first use, my hair felt gunky and stuck together and hard to comb through when it was wet, but then after it dried my hair was really soft. I wasn't sure how I felt about it actually. Then I used it a few more times, and the gunkiness started to go away, maybe it was just residue from the jojoba oil I put on my ends or something. After the 3rd or 4th time washing my hair with this shampoo, I decided to actually wash all the way down to my ends, instead of just washing my root/scalp like I usually do (it makes temporary bright red color stay in longer) and it did the trick! My hair was really clean and not gunky at all. It is VERY moisturizing, not as soon as you rinse..it feels kinda tangly, but after you condition and then rinse you can actually run your fingers through my tangly ass curls. That's saying something. My bf actually has used it as well and says he likes the way it makes his hair feel. So, is it a complete dupe for Shea Moisture? No, but it has some similarities and I do really like it. I hope you enjoyed this review! Have you tried any products from Everyday Shea? What is your favorite shampoo?

Though this is a good shampoo for cooler weather...my hair hates it in warm weather. It makes it super oily way quicker than usual and it feels kind of sticky. It is FANTASTIC for shaving though! It makes your legs/ armpits really smooth. It also makes a GREAT makeup brush cleaner...which are the only things I use it for now.
