Being a long grow-out transitioner I have had to try all sorts of products to get the two textures to “work together” ultimately trying to achieve some kind of harmony on the top of my head. This product review should really be titled “Renewed Love” because that is exactly what I have for the Cantu Shea Butter line of products. I used these products when I was relaxing my hair faithfully, however, I didn’t like the end result when using them on my solely relaxed hair. After using the products along with others in my regimen, my hair felt clammy. However, now that I am transitioning, and using these products together, I love the end result.
The Cantu Shea Butter Rinse Out conditioner, I use as a deep conditioner. I place the product on my hair and then cover with a plastic cap for at least 30-45 minutes. I find it best to detangle my hair while this product is on as the comb moves through with ease. After rinsing the product out my hair feels moisturized and soft. The shea butter in this product nourishes your hair by coating the hair shaft from root to tip.
The next product I use in this regimen is the Cantu Butter Leave-In Conditioner Repair Cream. This leave-in conditioner is the bomb.com! It helps with the definition of one’s curl pattern and leaves your hair soft as well. Hair is not weighed down or clammy! In addition, since using this conditioner I have also noticed a decrease in breakage, which is one of the claims the company makes about this product.
This regimen has aided in my transitioning which I find challenging at times and I recommend these products to anyone who is in this stage of their natural hair journey.
