I've tried every possible way (well not every way, but close to it) and I'm bringing you a product review for it!
Cantu for Natural Hair Coconut Curling Cream will define, condition and add manageability toyour curls, leaving them soft, shiny and deeply moisturized. Made with 100% pure shea butter and formulated without chemicals or harsh ingredients, Cantu for Natural Hair restores your real, authentic beauty. Embrace your curly, kinky or wavy hair with Cantu for Natural Hair. No Mineral Oil, Sulfate, Parabens, Silicone, Phthalates, Gluen, Paraffin, Propylene Glyco, PABA or DEA.
Smooth onto damp hair section by section from the root down the hair shaft. Do not rinse out. Can be used on dry hair to enhance curls.
First of all, let me start off by saying that this Cantu Coconut Curling Cream has a strong smell to it. It doesn't stink, but if you can't handle strong smells, I wouldn't recommend this for you. Not only that, but the smell lingers in your hair as well the first day or two. The consistency is thick. I can turn the jar upside down and it doesn't move.
|Hopefully you can see how thick it is.. Especially in the last picture.|
I recently just started using this again this week because I thought "why the hell not?". I sectioned off my hair as usual, dampened my hair and added EVOO/Argan oil to each section to help retain moisture, applied this product, then applied Ishimma's Hydration Hair Butter on the ends, finishing up with EVOO/Castor oil on the ends as well. (Sounds like a lot, but I was NOT playing when I said I wanted to retain length this winter lol. Plus I figured I could use the extra protection because I knew I would be wearing my hair down and out). That next day when I took my twists out though?!!? My hair was soft, defined but still heavy :( Also, I've found that my hair isn't as defined with second day hair.
|As you can see in the pic on the left, the front and top of my hair isn't as defined as it was yesterday.|
Final Verdict: 7/10
