My Natural Hair Journey With Cantu

I started my natural hair journey about 2 years primarily with SheaMoisture and African Pride hair products. And I have not really looked at trying any other brands until recently. Lately, my hair has been breaking thanks to some silly protective hairstyles I have been doing. I knew it was time to test out other natural hair products to help grow my hair. In my pursuit of the  right hair products to save my hair, I met Cantu.

Cantu is a 100% pure shea butter and coconut oil infused range that includes a complete regimen of Cleanse, Condition, Curl and Control products.  Cantu natural hair products provide moisture, nourishment and protection to meet the daily demands of natural hair.

I tried Cantu Shea Butter for Natural Hair Deep Treatment Masque, Leave-In Conditioner Repair Cream and Tea Tree & Jojoba Hair and Scalp Oil.

Fashion and Style Police Reviews LOEWE & Nina Ricci Perfumes

As a perfume lover, I am forever trying new fragrances. I recently got the golden opportunist to try Aura by LOEWE and Ricci Ricci by Nina Ricci. And both perfumes are now by summer favourites.

 

Aura by LOEWE 50ml £59

I have never heard or tried anything from the LOEWE brand so I was happy to try this perfume. This Eau de Parfum was launched in 2003. It is a lovely fragrance, with notes of rose otto, sandalwood, and a hint of Loewe’s signature leather. It is a floral, woody fragrance that you either like or you don’t. I love it! The powdery fragrance does it for me.
