Cheap & Clean Beauty: SheaMoisture’s Curl Enhancing Smoothie

Recently, I asked a friend what she uses on her gorgeous, frizz-free curls. Her answer? SheaMoisture! I had seen SheaMoisture products displayed at Target for eons, but I didn’t know much about them, other than that they were relatively inexpensive and marketed as “natural.”

Many products marketed as “natural” actually contain ingredients that are known skin irritants (or worse, linked to cancer), so it’s always worth doing your homework! I did a little poking around and was just pleasantly surprised to find that EWG and ThinkDirty categorize most of SheaMoisture’s products as quite clean and low toxic.

I’m always on the lookout for cheap and clean beauty products, so the next time I was at Target I picked up a $4 travel size (3.2 oz) of the Coconut and Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie, which is rated a 0 ThinkDirty (I.e. the cleanest score) and a 1 at EWG … And I have been so pleased with the results!!! I run a little through my hair when it’s wet and scrunch — and voila! Shiny, frizz-free curls. Sometimes I’ll also run a little through dry hair to define second-day curls and to tame any frizz.

I have tried so many curl creams over the years, and I find this one to to have the rare combination of being cheap, clean, and effective. I’m super excited to try more products from this line — I’ll keep you posted with updates as I find more keepers!

Have you tried any products by SheaMoisture?
