Product Review: Cantu Shea Butter Leave In Conditioning Repair Cream

Although my staple products are pretty set, I had to go back to a goodie but oldie product I used to use...even before I went natural...

Product Name

Cantu Shea Butter Leave In Conditioning Repair Cream Product Review (Cantu)*

Price and Size:

Product Description:

Shea Butter

My Experience:

After washing and allowing my hair to air dry until damp, I added Cantu to my hair length (along with JBCO  on the ends). Then I two strand twisted my hair to stretch for styling.

Another occasion: On dry and stretched hair, I used Cantu (and water with JBCO) to moisturize my hair for a twist out.

Twist Out With Dry, Stretched Hair Tutorial 

My Thoughts:

This product reminds me of my current moisturizer, Shea Moisture Yucca Styling Milk . Although the Yucca Milk is a bit more creamy, Cantu worked very nicely with my hair (paired with JBCO and water). Even my twist out was fluffy, just like using the Yucca Milk. Even though my twist out was not as defined as using Shea Moisture Smoothie, my hair was soft and moisturized throughout the day. 

I was pretty happy with this product and I knew from reading my hair diary about Cantu that this will be a great fall back product to keep in my hair care arsenal. I'm going to use Cantu!


Natural hair says: it is best to know your hair before purchasing products without researching it. Make sure you learn your hair, check the product label, and read on reviews to determine if the product is worth purchasing. Never purchase on a whim.

Always Desire Your Natural,

*Cantu Shea Butter Leave In Conditioning Repair Cream was purchased with my own money and this is my honest opinion.
