Every once in a while, a brand just gets you. It offers products for your face, body, and hair that make you feel seen. Such is the case with SheaMoisture, as its product count is extensive and its formulas inclusive. There are so many options—super-hydrating elixirs for dry skin, repairing offerings for damaged hair, and washes and scrubs to smooth and moisturize your body from neck to toe. Then, there are styling products and masks for your natural texture, whether that's thick and curly or fine. There truly is something for everyone and, to be frank, we wouldn't make it through New York winters without a lot of its formulas.

So we decided to do a roundup of all the must-haves. We reached out to other editors, influencers, and read through reviews for recommendations and compiled a list of the best-ever products SheaMoisture has to offer.

Below, find our picks of the best SheaMoisture products available today. Keep scrolling for all the goods.

SheaMoisture African Black Soap Bar Soap

SheaMoisture African Black Soap Bar

One of the most iconic products of the bunch, SheaMoisture's shea butter–infused African Black Soap is designed to deeply cleanse your skin of dirt or impurities while still keeping it still soothed, calm, and conditioned. All you have to do is lather up and cover your body in goodness.

SheaMoisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Style & Smooth Edge Treatment Gel

SheaMoisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen & Restore Edge Treatment

This precise styling gel works to block humidity as well as control flyaways, while also promoting natural hair growth. It's like the triple-threat of haircare, strengthening, and conditioning while preventing breakage. Use a small amount to your styled hair, smoothing any flyaways with your fingertips. Then, apply small dabs to your hairline and edges for a sleek, slicked-back look.

SheaMoisture 100% Virgin Coconut Oil Leave In Treatment

SheaMoisture 100% Virgin Coconut Oil Daily Hydration Leave-In Treatment

This delightfully scented leave-in treatment incorporates both coconut oil and milk, so the formula is brimming with vitamin E, natural triglycerides, and conditioning properties to nourish, soften, and help retain moisture in your hair. Plus, antioxidants help protect your strands against environmental stressors and other damage.

SheaMoisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie

SheaMoisture Coconut Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie

Made with natural and certified-organic ingredients, including coconut oil, silk proteins, and neem oil, SheaMoisture's cult-favorite is great for thick, curly hair in need of serious conditioning.

"I find hair products work best on wet hair, so after leaving the shower, I don't dry my hair," recommends Bermuda-born model Aliana King. "I split it into sections from bottom to top and rake my SheaMoisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie from root to tip. I've used this product for about two years now. It consistently gives me amazing results. The one product works perfectly on its own."

SheaMoisture Sacha Inchi Omega 3,6,9 Rescue & Replenishing Massage Oil

SheaMoisture Sacha Inchi Omega 3,6,9 Rescue & Replenishing Massage Oil

Indulge your skin (and your soul) with this rich massage oil chock-full of organic raw shea butter. The omegas (3, 6, and 9) help rebuild your skin's natural moisture barrier to better lock in moisture, while quinoa replenishes your collagen and elastin. After applying, your skin will feel continuously hydrated and nourished all throughout the day and night. It's incredible, and reviewers agree.

SheaMoisture Manuka Honey & Yogurt Hydrate + Repair Split End Balm

SheaMoisture Manuka Honey & Yogurt Hydrate + Repair Split End Balm

According to the brand, this balm seals and reduces the appearance of split ends by 89%—which is incredible. It uses certified-organic shea butter as well as a Manuka honey and yogurt blend to block humidity and hold your ends together (so it looks like a fresh cut, even when it's not).  

SheaMoisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen & Restore Shampoo

Shea Moisture

Rice proteins used in this formulation help add volume to your curls by thickening individual hair strands and smoothening any frizz, while certified-organic raw shea butter rich in fatty acids and vitamins delivers intense hydration to promote hair growth. Then, the all-natural cleanser (with apple cider vinegar) gently washes any dirt accumulation or product buildup with peppermint and coconut oil to protect and prevent breakage.

SheaMoisture African Black Soap Clarifying Mud Mask

SheaMoisture Clarifying Mud Mask African Black Soap

To easily draw out dirt and congestion while helping absorb excess oil and improve the appearance of your skin, try this blend of African black soap, raw shea butter, tamarind extract, and tea tree oil. The soap works to clear up breakouts, while tamarind is a natural astringent to exfoliate and brighten your skin and tea tree oil promotes healing courtesy of its natural antiseptic properties. This is the perfect mask remedy for hormonal acne.

SheaMoisture Green Coconut & Activated Charcoal In-Shower Styler

SheaMoisture Green Coconut & Activated Charcoal In-Shower Styler

We love an in-shower product—a formula meant to save us time and get us out the door faster. This one is infused with green coconut, has activated charcoal that balances any oily roots, moisturizes mid-lengths and ends, and helps your hair dry really nicely straight out of the shower.

SheaMoisture Coconut Oil Coffee Scrub

SheaMoisture Coconut Oil Coffee Scrub

To gently exfoliate your skin—whether it's dry, dull, rough, or just needs some extra TLC—this 100% virgin coconut oil scrub is amazing. It offers lightweight hydration, antioxidant- and caffeine-infused exfoliation for toning and protection, and a suppleness that's practically unprecedented.
