I never took interest in Cantu Beauty until seeing many transitioners and long-term stretchers applaud the line. Specifically, they complimented the leave in conditioner’s ability to soften and moisturize. Therefore, I purchased it along with a few other Cantu Beauty Products — Cantu Care for Kids Conditioning Detangler and Cantu Shea Butter Moisturizing Curl Activator Cream.
The Assessment || Cantu Shea Butter Leave In Conditioning Repair Cream
In the past, I struggled to find a good leave in conditioner that worked for air drying my hair. Most leave in conditioners leave my hair feeling dry and/or require layering of multiple products for it to feel remotely hydrated. However, my search just might be over!
The Cantu Shea Butter Leave In Conditioning Repair Cream is pure excellence! It tames, softens and smooths from root (natural hair) to tip (relaxed hair).
I consider this leave in conditioner balanced as it delivers a perfect blend of protein and moisture. My compliment is major considering I have protein sensitive hair that hates what seems like all things protein.
It doesn’t, however, provide much slip for detangling so I offset that by sealing my hair with an oil or serum.
I used the leave in conditioner as per the directions and it worked great with each use:
- Moisturizer – on dry hair
- Leave In Conditioner – on damp hair
- Intensive Deep Conditioner – overnight treatment
Does it Deliver as Promised?
Yes! It hydrates the hair which lessens the opportunity for breakage. It doesn’t, however, repair split ends because split ends cannot be repaired. They can only be trimmed or cut. At any rate, I’m very happy I gave this product a try.
