Being a newbie to the natural hair journey, I have been cautious about the products I use. I've been hearing a lot of great things about a company called Cantu. I've read numerous blogs about their products. A friend of mine tweeted earlier this week about Walgreens having a buy one get one on Cantu products. This was just the push I needed to try something new. Retailing for $5.79 per item, the price was right as well. I settled on the shampoo, conditioner, leave in repair cream and oil sheen. There are two other items that weren't in stock that I will be going back to get as well. They are the flat iron spray and grow strong cream.
Moisturizing Cream Shampoo
First off, let's talk about the smell. Oh Em Gee!! It smells so good. Good enough to eat. I love when a product smells good. That same smell was still present once I was done with my hair. The shampoo was great. I didn't have to use a lot to get a good lather. I washed my hair twice. I them coated my hair handsomely with the moisturizing conditioner. I loved how thick it was and how slippery it felt. I put a cap on my head and let the conditioner sit for 20 minutes. This was longer than is recommended but I was on the phone.
Moisturizing Rinse Out Conditioner
The best part of this experience has to be the Leave In Conditioning Repair Cream. This cream smells awesome as well. I knew from reading other reviews that less is more with this product. I applied it from root to tip. It felt so good on my hair. I combed my hair out with a wide tooth comb. After blow drying and flat ironing my hair, I sprayed my hair with the Oil Sheen. I was finally done. I loved the way my hair felt and smelled. I think I've found my go to products. For the price (especially with this sale) I am definitely winning in this aspect.
Leave-In Conditioning Repair Cream
Cantu has a new fan in me. The products are great. The price is affordable. It's easily accessible since its available at Walgreen's, CVS and online. Cantu is a great product for any new and existing naturalistas out there. I, for one, am so glad I took a chance and tried something new. Going natural has scared since before I started. This makes things easier. Products that make my hair easier to manage. I am about 18 weeks post relaxer. I'm still just doing my hair myself for now. I am a believer in Cantu. Two days later, I'm still a happy customer
