In This Article:

I have straight hair and often felt envious of those who could use the Shea Moisture range of shampoos for their hair because most of their shampoos are specifically formulated for curly hair types.

So when I saw this Shea Moisture Daily Hydration Shampoo, which on the product read – “For all hair types”, I was super excited and had to try it out! Here's my review.

Shea Moisture 100% Coconut Oil Daily Hydration Shampoo Review

I am so glad that I finally got to use a Shea Moisture shampoo which I have been waiting for ages to try! I can finally say that I have found “the one” in terms of the shampoo I will continue using for my hair because it worked wonders on my straight hair!

Even though my hair is straight, it wasn’t smooth silky hair (like you see in the advertisements!). It was dry because it had been through a number of colour and heat treatments and yes, that’s on me!

So, I am so thankful that this superb shampoo was able to fix my hair within a matter of two months (of usage) and today my hair feels so much more smoother and silkier. It made my hair feel more manageable over time.

This shampoo helped moisturize my hair very well and reduced dryness considerably, wherein I saw the results within the first week of usage and my hair texture kept improving over the months.

This shampoo lathers really well (especially when I use it after diluting it with a little water) and it gives a good foam making the massaging process way easier. It is a great hair and scalp cleanser.

It is free from sulfates and parabens and this is something that I really liked, not just because it felt gentle on my hair and sensitive scalp (and didn’t cause any irritation), but it also worked well for my coloured hair.

It didn’t fade my hair colour drastically, so that was a plus. I did experience a little hair colour fading, but that I felt is normal even with the use of any other shampoo as well.

Talking about the fragrance, well, I am not a huge fan of the smell of coconut, so yes, I was a little apprehensive about the smell. But luckily for me, the smell of the coconut was not overpowering at all and it made my hair feel fresh once it dried.

Coming to the pricing, it was a little out of my budget, to be honest, but since it offered promising results I went in for it and looks like I paid the price for the benefits and I have absolutely no regrets! So definitely buying this product again!

Key Ingredients and their Benefits

The main ingredients of this product are mentioned below along with their benefits:

Shea Moisture 100% Coconut Oil Daily Hydration Shampoo

Coconut oil

Coconut oil is a great hair moisturizer as it contains lauric acid. It can help keep the hair well-nourished and improve hair health considerably. (National Center for Biotechnology Information. "PubChem Compound Summary for CID 3893, Lauric Acid" PubChem,)

Coconut oil is an ingredient that can get absorbed by the hair very easily by penetrating into the hair shaft and thereby keeping the hair hydrated for long hours.

It helps calm frizz and can also help reduce hair breakage to a large extent, by strengthening the hair strands.

Coconut milk

Coconut milk is rich in fatty acids and can help keep the hair well-nourished. It can also help accelerate hair growth by enhancing the nutrient flow to the hair follicles.

Using coconut milk on the hair can help add to hair volume and can make the hair become thicker and look more voluminous over time.

Acacia Senegal gum extract

This ingredient acts like a natural hair moisturizing agent. Even though it is a lesser-known ingredient when it comes to hair care, it can contribute to hair plumping and promote better hair repair.

It can also help keep the hair and scalp well-moisturized and can reduce hair dehydration. The Acacia Senegal extract is known to bring back vibrancy to dry, damaged and limp hair strands. (National Center for Biotechnology Information. "PubChem Compound Summary for CID 14109413" PubChem)

A few of the other ingredients of this shampoo include:

Aloe vera

Aloe vera is a super ingredient when it comes to hair, hair growth and promoting better hair health. It can help strengthen the hair and reduce hair breakage.

It acts like a natural hair moisturizer and can also reduce hair dryness. Aloe vera is known to help reduce hair greasiness and increase hair shine and lustre.

Rosehip oil

Rosehip oil is yet another lesser-known ingredient when it comes to hair care, but is rich in vitamins, nutrients and fatty acids that can provide immense nourishment to the hair strands and hair follicles for smooth and successful hair growth.

It is also known to increase and improve hair strength and can reduce hair loss and promote overall hair growth.

Argan oil

Argan oil is rich in vitamin E and contains fatty acids that can coat the hair shaft and reduce dryness and prevent hair from external damage.

It can also reduce frizz to a large extent as it relieves the hair from dehydration. It is also known to reduce and prevent hair fall and promote better hair growth.

Sweet almond oil

This ingredient can help increase hair strength and can reduce hair fall due to hair breakage. It can also reduce hair damage to a large extent as it increases hair hydration and reduces dryness.

This oil contains large amounts of vitamin E which helps prevent hair damage as it is a natural antioxidant.

SheaMoisture Daily Hydration Shampoo: A Summary

Hair cleansing ability:

My scalp and hair is prone to buildup because I am a frequent user of hair care products. So this is something I look for in a shampoo, as to how well it will cleanse my hair and scalp.

Gentleness on the hair and scalp:

I always look for shampoos that do not contain harsh chemicals like parabens and sulfates as they are quite damaging to the hair. In addition to this aspect, I check how gentle the shampoo feels on my sensitive scalp.

Effectiveness of the product:

This shampoo offers a range of benefits from hair hydration, cleansing, nourishment, and softening. I use this parameter to rate and review as to how well and to what extent this shampoo fulfills its promised benefits.


I most often choose unscented products because I dislike harsh smells. But if a product is mildly scented, I do not mind. So this parameter tests how mild or harsh the smell of this shampoo was.

Safety of use on colour-treated hair:

My hair is colour-treated and has also become quite damaged due to the frequent hair colouring treatments I get done. I look for shampoos that are specifically formulated for coloured hair or at least those which do not have harsh chemicals that can fade my hair colour easily.

Cost and pricing:

My ideal price range for a shampoo conditioner set like this one would be between $12 to $16. So here I review the cost factor and whether the product was worth the price I paid.
