My Experience:  Well, if you are like me, I had already been a fan of Cantu, especially their Leave In Conditioning Repair Cream, for years.  I was curious when I learned of their Natural Hair line being released.  The products arrived with an ample amount in each container.  I used each product over the course of nearly a month and much of my results were posted along the way through Facebook.  I was amazed at the multi-purpose uses of each product.  It served as my go-to for any hairstyle.

Fragrance:  Cantu has not changed their wonderful, coconut fragrance.  These products have the same great, delicious smell; however, it is not overpowering.  It is just enough to give a pleasant, fresh smell.

Results:  Wow!  Anyone who saw my hair throughout the period that I was trying these products always stopped and asked what I was using in my hair.  The products gave my hair a great amount of shine and defined my curls perfectly.  I came out with great twists or twist outs every time!

Moisture:  These products give such great moisture.  The Creamy Hair Lotion was my favorite of the bunch because you could use it literally on wet or dry hair and it would automatically give you moisture and shine in seconds.  They all gave a great amount of moisture; however, the Coconut Curling Cream did leave residue in my hair after my hair dried.

Price:  The price of these products are amazing.  I always value companies who make a set price for each product and stick to it.  Plus, the amount you receive in each container is fabulous for this price.  I used these products for nearly a month and barely made a dent in them.

Final Thoughts:  If you can’t tell already, I LOVE THESE PRODUCTS!  From the delicious smell to the curl definition, these have easily become my favorite natural hair products.  I was able to create twists, twist outs, puffs… You name it!  My only wish for Cantu would have been for them to make a shampoo and conditioner to go with this line.  So many of the products overlap in their uses that two could easily be swapped for a shampoo and conditioner.  Also, the Coconut Milk Shine & Hold Mist only made my hair frizzy and wild rather than refreshing the hair.  Overall, loving five out of six products in a line is pretty amazing.

Be sure to check your local Walgreens or Walmart for these amazing products!
