Cantu Shea Butter Leave in Conditioning Repair Cream
For me, there is only one hair product that I use daily (except for oils & essential oils) is a leave in conditioner or/and detangler. I have to detangle my hair every day since my new growth is really thick and tightly curled (read my transitioning posts here). Since I have to buy it so often, I am still looking for an affordable, fairly natural & great working product.
I have of course heard of the Cantu Shea Butter before, I even recommended it for my friend once because the ingredients looked great. At that time I think I just didn't buy it because there were silicones in it.
Anyway, my TIGI leave in conditioner is almost finished (review here) so I headed to the hair shop. I was about to pick up the Kera Care leave in lotion but it's a bit pricey and there is not a lot in there, so again- it would finish really quickly. I saw the Cantu Shea butter in a massive jar of 16 FL OZ/473 ml for only £3.99. For some unknown reason I only skimmed through the amazing top part of the ingredient list missing mineral oil at the faaar bottom!! Might not sound like a big deal but I really don't want to use mineral oil, especially not in my hair. However, it is in the bottom of the list and it can't be more than a really tiny bit of it, so I will still finish this product.
Other leave in conditioners/detanglers I have tried:
- Curls- Curl Souffle (love this, but it's so pricey)
- Jamaican Lime & Mango no more relaxer transitioning cream (this is great, and fairly cheap. Doesn't last for long though)
- TIGI Love Peace & The Planet- Has amazing slip, but is sticky (could be due to the fact that it was bought from TK Maxx and it is apparently old stock, click to read more)
Have you tried any of the Cantu Shea Butter products?
Do u mind using Mineral Oil?
