4C girl here! And I have to say… nothing, I repeat, NOTHING has ever made my hair feel this soft. I was skeptical at first because of all the negative things I’ve heard the natural hair community say about Cantu products, but honeslty… they’ve never let me down. The deep conditioner may not be the very best, but it’s functional. The leave-in and moisturiser though are UNMATCHED. It smells amazing, and is non-greasy, so it won’t weigh your hair down at all. I don’t think I’ll be using anything else for a while.
I have dry, coloured, naturally curly hair, and this stuff is great. It smells really nice, not overpowering, goes on really well and leaves my hair feeling very soft. My curls stay in place all day, although the following day they are a little frizzy. You do not need to use a lot, although experiment if you have really thick hair. I haven’t tried it with the rest of the range, it may work better, it may not, but it is cheaper here than anywhere else. I will get it again when I run out but that wont be for at least six months. This stuff lasts for ages!

Really worth it’s weight in gold, don’t quote me! But it smells fresh and clean and fully moisturizes your hair, not only that but it doesn’t leave your hair dry and crunchy… Don’t raise the price and expect a lot of sales!
Its taken me 29years!!! To find a hair wash that my hair really loves, ive medium thick straightish hair which is always oily at the roots and dry frizzy foaming hair at the bottom even when my hair wasnt ruined with dye it was always dry and this has made my hair so soft it looked straightened ive never had hair like this i can wear it down, i only used to wash ny haor with conditioner i cnt use shampoo at all and it still left my hair dry but not this stuff its bloomin magic potion so try it youd be daft not to
i previously bought the Cantu Natural Complete Conditioning Co-Wash, Shea Butter, but i was getting too much build up(even tho i was only using the Cantu Natural Moisturising Curl Activator Cream and nothing else) and it was leaving me having to wash my hair every other day.so i thought i’d give this, and the accompanying shampoo, a go. wow! i love it. never going back! the shampoo completely cleans my hair without drying it out, and the conditioner gives it that added shine and softness.i have 2C/3A hair.
At last. A cream that’s not greasy but keeps hair moist, curly and frizz free. This is a repeat buy for my household. We use this just before a swim and tiny bit every night after bathe time. Excellent product!!!

A GOD SEND. I absolutely DESTROYED my hair by bleaching it three times in one day. It was probably as dead as it could possibly be without falling out. I have just washed my hair with this and the difference after one use is absolutely amazing! After reading so many articles that said my damaged hair would take months or even years to be healthy again, I fully expected this to be a disappointment. I was so fully proved wrong and cannot wait to use this again and continue seeing results! My hair is already less dry and dead, and feels soft and smells amazing! Used in conjunction with a good hair mask, this can and will do wonders. Will be buying again!

It’s only taken me like 30 years to find a product like this!!! I’ve very frizzy curly hair which is long and unruley, its a nightmare when washing, however the shampoo and conditioner used together with curling cream after leaves my hair in much better condition! Would defo recommend

My hair is naturally curly and currently quite damaged. It is also not very porous so requires a lot of help to stay hydrated. I have therefore been trying to focus on better hair products suited more suited to my hair type. Since using this conditioner (along with a switch to suphafe free shampoo) for the last few months I have noticed a marked improvement in the condition of my hair.
I am in love with cantu, and this leave-in conditioner is just Amazing, makes my curls much healthier, hidrates and texturises my hair, nitrify my scalp and smells Amazing!!!! It’s totally worth it. I have loads!!!
