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.

Product Review: African Pride Shea Butter Miracle Leave-in conditioner & Olive Miracle Growth Oil

African Pride Products Image

I wrote about my natural hair transition journey the other day, and I mentioned how eager I was to review some cool natural hair products. Well, say hello to African Pride Shea Butter Miracle Leave-in conditioner & Olive Miracle Growth Oil…

I have used both products on my hair and daughter’s hair for a while now, and I have super impressed with them.

Here is what African Pride has to say about the Shea Butter Miracle Moisture Intense Leave-in conditioner –

This rich cream is both a conditioner and a styling aid. Naturals are able to replenish moisture to freshly cleansed tresses or use a dollop to restyle and add shine and fight frizz. Perfect for short-haired naturals, wash-n-go looks and use with Bouncy Curls Pudding.

I use this product as instructed – a leave-in-conditioner. I apply to damp hair, and add a bit of Olive Miracle Growth Oil as often as I can, I aim to do this every other day, when I have my plaits out, and so far I am winning.

  6. It is quite affordable at £6.95 on eBay.

This African Pride Shea Butter Miracle Leave-in conditioner is the truth. I recommend it all the curly hair women, women transitioning to natural hair, women and children with short hair, and to anyone in need of a fab leave-in-conditioner. I have bought this product so many times, and I have referred it to family and friends, and the feedback has been the same – amazing. This African Pride Shea Butter Miracle Leave-in conditioner is the best leave-in conditioner out there.

Here is what African Pride has to say about Olive Miracle Growth Oil:

Our Strengthening Growth Oil can used regularly to help stop breakage, split-end and dryness. It’s also excellent for skin, body and nail health. This multi-purpose oil is perfect for dry hair, scalp and skin. It adds the perfect balance of moisture and hydration to tresses. Smooth onto your skin or directly into your hair. Can also be used as a hot oil treatment.
