Cantu Review

                                     


I'm going to be reviewing the Cantu Shea Butter Leave In Conditioning Repair Cream, *whew* long name! I bought this from Walgreen's about two months ago when I started my natural journey. I'd read that it didn't mix well with EVOO, but I bought it anyway because I'm hard headed. When it came time to use it, I sealed my hair with my EVOO and then applied this over it and unfortunately it turned my hair white and no matter how much I rubbed it in, it still looked the same. So, as I stated in my first Natural Hair Log, it was a no no and had to go. Fast forward to a couple of days ago, I was reading Queen Of The 4s blog and she mentioned that she added oil to hers before she applied it to her hair and had no problems. Hmm, so I skeptically tried it and OMG the Cantu melted into my hair like it was nothing! I was baffled, I honestly tried it thinking there was no way it could work. Pie in my face. Then the bad part came. . .Sigh, I wish there didn't have to be one. My hair felt so hard and so dry after a couple of hours! It was ridiculous. I know I have trouble with dryness, but my hair had never been this hard before, no bueno. So I sprayed my hair with water and added my Holy Grail Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie and softer hair!! After two tries, I think I'm just going to throw this away or give it to one of my friends because it doesn't agree with my hair at all!! 

Do you, or have you, used this? What do you think of it? Let me know in the comments.

So I have the same Cantu Shea Butter Leave In Conditioner and I don't seal my ends, I don't believe I know exactly what that is (if you mind explaining) but I use it and it doesn't leave my hair white but it does dry my hair out. Not to the point that it's hard but I do see my hair is dry, but then I also mixed my oil in it an it works just fine, but the dryness is still there. Uhhh! so my grade for it is a D, lol.

I hate that stuff.I used it early on in my journey and the same white stuff with rock hard hair. Not good!

Some ppl like it, but I'm not one of them.
