Cantu Shea Butter leave in Conditioning repair cream is a custard- like product that is supposed to stop split ends, reduce breakage, as well as moisturize and protect your hair. You are even advised to put the product on your hair 3 days prior to getting a relaxer because it is supposed to protect your hair from any damaged potentially caused by the chemical process.
After applying the cream to my hair one thing that I appreciated was that it is a light product and a little goes a long way. Once I did put it on my hair 3 days before my relaxer and I didn’t notice any breakage but I usually don't have that problem anyway so I don't think I can fully attribute that result to the shea butter. For roughly $5.00 at your local beauty supply store this isn't a bad deal since it is paraben free and the main ingredients include shea butter and soybean oil. It also promises shine but i feel that the shine does a disappearing act after a few hours.
Have you tried anything from the Cantu line? How do you repair your hair when it gets damaged? Do you simply cut it off or attempt to treat it?
Update- I started my probation Aug. 3rd and this is my final week. What I failed to mention is that during this time I also curtailed my eating habits which means I wasn't spending money on products or food...can you say stuffed wallet...lol. This process really gave me an opportunity to see where I spend most of my money so that was great. Oh any I've lost weight for sure..yay.
