BRITTNEY DISHES | CANTU SHEA BUTTER

Cantu Shea Butter has been a charismatic brand and staple in my natural hair journey, as it was the very first product line I used after going natural. Known for their distinctive smell and moisturizing properties, the Cantu Shea Butter product line is perfect for my coily, thick, natural-hair.

On a past trip to target I purchase a few products from the line. Having used the line in a while, I was anxious to test them on my now thicker, much longer natural hair.

The entire wash day experience was a nostalgic exercise as the scent of the products took me back to the beginning of my natural hair journey. The products collectively worked to moisturize, soften, repair and add shine to my thick coils.

HERE’S THE RUNDOWN 

SULFATE-FREE CLEANSING SHAMPOO

This shampoo did a great job of cleansing my my hair without causing it to feel dry or brittle. It removed the excess build up of products I used throughout the week and restored moisture prior to conditioning.

HYDRATING CREAM CONDITIONER 

After cleansing my hair with the sulfate-free shampoo, I applied the Cantu Hydrating Cream Conditioner directly onto my wet hair. The conditioner did an excellent job of restoring the moisture and elasticity to hair while it added shine and defined my curls. After rinsing the product out my hair was noticeably softer and shiner.

COIL CALM DETANGLER

Once the conditioning process was done, I detangled my hair using the Coil Calm Detangler. The product did a decent job of detangling my hair and helping to remove any knots caused during the washing process however, my hair did feel dry after the entire process was done.

LEAVE-IN CONDITIONING REPAIR CREAM

The Leave-in Conditioning Repair Cream is my favorite product of the entire line. It is a definite product staple as is does an excellent job of moisturizing, softening and maintaing the overall health of my hair. After applying this leave-in my hair is noticeably shiner, softer to comb through and easier to manipulate. The product works great for defining my natural curl pattern and improving the manageability of my hair. I would definitely  recommend this products for all hair types.

EXTRA HOLD EDGE STAY GEL

The Edge Stay Gel is another favorite from the Cantu line as it is one of the best edge gels I’ve ever used. It’s ability to tame and control flyaways while adding moisture and shine is impeccable. The hold was strong enough to withstand throughout the day and helped to prevent frizz.

CONDITIONING CREAMY HAIR LOTION

The Conditioning Creamy Hair Lotion has been a great overall moisturizer for my hair especially since I’m currently wearing my hair in protective styles. It does a great job of adding moisture and softness to my braids and twist, while acting as a creamy conditioner.
