Review: Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Style Milk

Promises: This moisturizing style cream detangles, conditions and controls curls while restoring body and shine

Directions: Apply as a no-rinse moisturizer and styling cream to damp, towel dried hair as needed.

Ingredients: Deionized Water, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter)*, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil*, Sugar Starch, Silk Protein, Essential Oil Blend, Melia Azadirachta (Neem) Seed Oil, Caprylyl Glycol, Sorbitol Esters, Algae Extract, Hyssopus Officinalis Extract, Salvia Officinalis, (Sage) Leaf and Equistum Arvense Extract, Daucus Carota Sativa (Carrot) Seed Oil, Lonicera Caprifolium (Honeysuckle) Flower (and) Tocopherol (Vitamin E) Hibiscus Flower Extract *Certified Organic Ingredient

Verdict: I love this product!!! I purchased the Curl & Style Milk because the Transitioning Milk that I love so much was out of stock. The consistency of this milk reminded me of a thick lotion. In comparison to the Shea Moisture Transitioning Milk, the Curl & Style Milk is thinner in consistency. The directions advise to apply the product to damp hair, however I find that using a product with a water-like consistency to my hair when damp works better. I use the Curl & Style Milk to to seal after I moisturise with S Curl... they go together like Bread & Butter!! I find that sealing with hair milks and shea butter works a lot better for my hair than sealing with oils. If you find yourself moisturising & sealing your hair frequently each day, I suggest you try a hair milk or a butter such as shea or avocado as a sealant. Along with the first hair milk I tried from Shea Moisture, I have no faults. The product lives up to its promises, it helps to define my curls/coils and reduce frizz. The scent is subtle but sweet, it smells good enough to eat. A little goes a very long way, depending on the length and density of your hair it could last the best part of a year. The ingredients are amazing and the price is reasonable. This was purchased for me from the US by my mother, she paid $11.59 from Beauty Spot. For my US followers, you can purchase this for $9.99 at Target. For my UK followers, it is not so easily available. One of the cheapest UK stockist is PAKS at £12.99. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone. For those wondering whether I prefer the Curl & Style milk to the Transitioning Milk, I would have to say, it's a draw. I love them both!!

Have you the tried the Curl & Style milk or any other Shea Moisture product?


  1. $9.99 is a good price. I am glad it works for you.

    1. I agree. Thanks, have you tried anything from Shea Moisture?

  2. I haven't tried it but I love the Curl Enhancing smoothie for my bantu knot curls. And that scent----HEAVENLY!

    1. I'm waiting to try the curl enhancing smoothie, I just need to get rid of some of my other products first. I'm glad it's working for you. :)
