Cantu Can-Do! Check Out the New Cantu Shea Butter Lineup


We love Cantu Shea Butter Products around these parts. It’s one of the few affordable drug-store brand hair care products that don’t contain mineral oil, sulfates, parabens, silicones, propylene or parrafins. I especially like the anti-break strengthening oil, which I like to apply to the ends and about 1/3 up the shaft, where my hair is often the driest (and weakest). This greatly reduced the amount of micro breaks I see when I’m wearing my twist outs.

I really like the Coil Calm Detangler, and spray it on right after I rinse my hair and then wrap it in a towel and let it sit and set in a bit before I style. I’m bummed that my local CVS doesn’t carry it but I found it on Amazon and can get it in two days with my Prime account. The Leave In Foam Conditioner is great for the baby’s hair, because it conditions but won’t weigh the hair down. It’s not so widely distributed yet, but I did find that is is sold here.
