Review: Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Kids Extra-Moisturizing Detangler

Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Kids Extra-Moisturizing Detangler is one of the few Shea Moisture products that just do not work for me.

Product Claims:
This mild, moisture-rich treatment detangles, defines, and tames children's thick, wavy or unruly hair without greasiness. Restores luster to dry, dull hair while conditioning

Ingredients: Deionized Water, Coconut Oil*, Shea Butter*, Silk Protein, Citrus Medica Limonium, Citrus Aurantifolia, Jasminium Officinale, Slippery Elm Extract, Essential Oil Blend, Neem Seed Oil, Algae Extract, Hyssopus Officinalis Extract, Sage Leaf and Horsetail Extract, Althaea Officinalis Extract, Vitamin E.

*Certified Organic Ingredient

This was a disappointment. I was expecting a better version of the Moisture Mist, but this pales in comparison. I've used a third of the bottle: it wasn't moisturizing for me, did not detangle, define or tame my hair in the least. No luster either. It isn't a greasy product, but it felt like a coating; it didn't penetrate. The fragrance doesn't match the rest of the line, it's more floral than the other products. I use this now to dampen my hair before applying other products, but I'll only do so if I'm near wash-day.

If you've noticed, hibiscus isn't in the ingredients list. I contacted the company a few months ago, and they responded that it was a labeling error. I'm not sure if it's been corrected as yet.

One thing I did like about this product is the packaging: the nozzle sprays a fine mist.

The Extra-Moisturizing Detangler is marketed as a children's product, and while I'm certainly not a child, I do have hair. I pick products based on what my hair likes/needs, not a company's marketing. The ingredients here look great, but the formulation just wasn't for me. I'll stick with the Moisture Mist.

Shea Moisture's customer service is top notch, IF you have and use Facebook. Their website is not fully functioning, but they are very active on Facebook.

Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Kids Extra-Moisturizing Detangler is sold in select Target stores and retails for $9.99 (8oz).

Would I repurchase?

Below is how I'd rate the product in the following categories:


Price: 4/5
Packaging: 5/5
Fragrance: 3/5
Performance: 1/5
Customer service: 4/5
