I haven't been able to say anything negative about SheaMoisture products and I cannot say anything negative about this one either. I love the natural ingredients it provides my hair which also means less stress for me and less damage done on my hair. I mostly concentrate on my ends as they seem to be the driest but it works wonderful in the dry winter months on the scalp if I notice any dryness or itch close to the follicles. It took some getting used to, by that I mean, knowing exactly how much to use on my hair so it wouldn't look greasy but that doesn't warrant a negative review. SheaMoisture caters to people of all races so to provide this product with a negative review solely on the opinion of it makes ones hair greasy would just be ignorant and self centered. It isn't the product, it's the consumer! Anyways, the elixir has a wonderful scent and adds shine to my dull ends! Highly recommend.

Oh dear God! I bought this product from curl box during a sale and maaaan I'm glad I did. I've only used it once so far but I'm in love. I have a mixture of 3C to 4B hair with some frizzy spots. I used this product after washing and air drying my hair for about 2-3 hours. This product provided lots of slip, it smells soooooo amazing and you don't need much for it to get the job done and it's very lightweight. I wanted to do two cornrows and I used this product to help my hands glide through with each braid. The amount of shine provided was so bomb. I'm pretty sure this finishing spray will be a staple product for me. I can't wait to try this out when straightening my hair.

I'm a huge fan of Shea moisture products. I decided to give the oil elixir a try and I was somewhat pleased. I have natural African American hair and it gave my hair great shine. I use it immediately after I wash my hair. I really also enjoy the fragrance of it. My only issue is that it is EXTREMELY greasy. Once my hair dries and I put my hands my hair, my hands will covered in oil. So I'm not sure if I would purchase again.

Love this stuff. I like that it is light enough to use on my straight hair. It smells good, but the smell fades a bit overtime (which I don't mind since that way it won't compete with my perfume). I love the ingredients. My hair looks so conditioned when I use this (I like to use it at night, so that it can absorb and my hair doesn't look greasy in the morning.)
A tip: a little goes a long way.

I absolutely love shea moisture! I am a biracial woman who is trying to grow her hair long and strong, so I was searching for products to help me do so. I love how this product makes my hair feel really soft and silky. I also love how shea moisture doesnt have any sulfates in the products. Highly recommend.

I absolutely love this elixir! It is super moisturized and soothing to the scalp. I use this product on went hair using the LOC method (leave-in, oil, cream) my hair was so moisturized. After a few days I used the elixir to re-moisturize my hair, focusing on the ends.

Use this if you have dry hair. Moisture with cream, water based leave in and then put this on. It's great for everyday use and should be used sparingly. I think it smells nice and makes the hair soft and manageable. It's a replacement for traditional hair grease.
