Product Review: Cantu Shea Butter Leave-in Conditioning Repair Cream

(This post contains affiliate links. See my disclosure about affiliate links here.)

Oh...my...goodness! When I first tried the Cantu Shea Butter Leave-in Conditioning Repair Cream my hair didn't like it. My hair also didn't like it the second, third, and fourth time. After a while I stopped using it. Then I pulled it back out during a relaxer stretch and used it on my dry new growth. Boy was I surprised, my new growth ate it up! Ever since I've been using this on my new growth when it feels dry and my relaxed hair has also come around to like it too. Cantu Shea Butter Leave-in Conditioning Repair Cream keeps my new growth soft and moisturized for a couple of days and also helps me detangle me new growth.
 

This moisturizer has a sweet kind of smell to it that lingers a bit as it fades. I typically have a negative reaction to strong fragrances, but this one doesn't bother me. Cantu Shea Butter Leave-in Conditioning Repair Cream is white in color and will leave a white residue or flakes if too much is used. I had that happen once and panicked because I thought I was getting grey hair. I have been able to avoid the white residue by mixing the moisturizer with a natural oil or serum. The consistency is thick so a little goes a long way. Most likely due to glycerin being the third ingredient there is a lot of slip which is why I've used it to assist with detangling my new growth.

I will most likely buy this again since my hair, especially my new growth, seems to really like it and it's pretty affordable. I also want to try the strengthening formula because it contains hydrolyzed proteins and could be used to add light protein to my regimen.

Price paid

About $6 at a big box store

  1. I only use it to deep condition my hair. That's the only way it works for me. I am glad your hair loves it now.

  3. The Shea Butter version did nothing but sit on my hair and make it heavy. My hair was not happy. I recently switched to the Argan Oil version of this Leave-in cream and my hair is happppppyyyyyy! Lighter formula, healthy shine and makes my hair flow! I'm glad I made the switch!

    1. So glad you found a conditioner that works for you! I've wanted to try the one with Argan Oil for a while, but can't find it in stores near me. Thanks for reading!
