Shea Moisture or Eden BodyWorks?

I have decided to do a comparison between the well known Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie and Eden BodyWorks Curl Defining Creme. Now both products are used to give twist outs, braids outs and some even use them to add moisture to their tresses. As expected both products pros and cons will vary from person to person.

Now lets get started!!

Curl Definition

Eden BodyWorks gives great definition. It gives my twists very tight curls while the Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie gives looser curls. Now I love them both. However, depending on the look I’m going for I’ll use them accordingly.

Shrinkage & Frizz

Eden BodyWorks eliminates shrinkage and flyaways while acting as a humidity-resistant. I am unable to say the same for the Shea Moisture as I noticed quite a bit of frizz on my   hair. With regards to the shrinkage I can’t say much as I applied it to dry hair.

Moisture Retention

Now I must admit both products made my hair very moisturized and soft to the touch. Even days after application to the hair it was left moisturized which I absolutely loved. 


For many naturals cost is very important when purchasing a product. This also goes for me. The Eden BodyWorks gives a great deal as the price is awesome and you get a lot of product as well. The Shea Moisture however, is not the same. This product is not as inexpensive and the quantity is much less. So if you are looking for something more affordable with a great amount then you should opt for the Eden BodyWorks Curl Defining Creme.

Which do you prefer?
