Chellur ya’ll *waves*
I’m back with another product review, this time of the Leave In Conditioning Repair Cream from Cantu Shea Butter .
If’n you’re in a hurry check out this handy dandy review video I did all in under 1 minute:
My husband was on a mission when he first started cutting his hair off and bought a whole slew of products to try (which I don’t totally get because I already own a whole slew of products but I digress). This Leave In Conditioning Repair Cream by Cantu was the first, so his opinions will included in this review. I decided to give it a try as well since I had heard the name “Cantu” in the online natural hair community many times but had yet to try any of their products. I was expecting great things.
The product purports to help:
- stop and mend hair breakage
- repair split ends and reduce frizz
- protect hair from heat damage
- hydrate and moisturize with shea butter and natural oils
Hubby used it for a while on damp, freshly shampooed hair without any other product added. He found it left his hair soft at first but crunchy by days end with no sheen, definite frizz and white flakes. He added that his scalp itched. I decided to give it a try myself and unfortunately, had similar results, although my itching seems way more unbearable than his. I’m not sure why we were itching, but I know we both stopped using the product after a couple weeks of itchy, flaky torture.
The bad news is we were not able to use the product longer than a couple of weeks so we cannot say whether it does what it promises. The good news is, hubby moved on to using another Cantu product, their Grow Strong Strengthening Treatment with more success. I’ll do a full review of that product soon. He says he plans on using the rest of the Leave In Conditioning Cream along with another product because his discomfort was not as bad as mine, and he likes the hold of the Pantene styling creme I recently reviewed so he wants to see how the two mesh.
Have you used this product and if so, what were your results? I posted on my Facebook fan page and the majority of responders had a similar experience.
