White chick with scottish/irish fro from hell. I have fought my hair all my life and finally found the help I needed when I moved away from the "white section" and moved to the "black section" of hair care products. I just need more moisture than my pale faced peers, it's that simple. Curly/wavy hair is difficult to tame when you have as much volume as I do. Cantu products weigh my curls down just enough to where they're moisturized but not greasy. I love it!

I use this Strengthening Treatment right after I step out of the shower when I shampoo. I finger comb it lightly through my hair and then let it air dry. Voila! Beautiful hair. It's not crunchy or crispy or anything nasty like that. Just soft and healthy. It only takes a small dab to do my whole head of hair.

I've read some reviews here about how it leaves a white residue and I completely disagree. I think you're just using way too much of it. I have not had any problems with strange residues gumming up my hair at all.

Also, for as big as this jar is you are getting a great deal!! I think this jar will last me a year or more and I use it every other day.

I started to get very bad breakage around my edges, when I started wrapping my hair at night. After reading the reviews on this product, I decided to try it for my relaxed hair. After two weeks I saw a decrease in shedding and my edges started to slowly regain thickness and wasn't as sparse looking anymore. I use it to grease my scalp the night before my relaxer and I don't get burned at all, and I've notice that my relaxer comes out much better. I've turned both my sisters and my mom on to this product and they're all happy with the results. Even my stylist has started using it as a base before a relaxer. It is a little heavy, so you want to use it sparingly.

Comments about Cantu Shea Butter Grow Strong Strengthening Treatment, 6.1 oz:

I am a 18 year old black girl and I've been transitioning for about 6 months and as you can imagine, it's been tough! My edges were so damaged, thinning and pretty much gone until I got this about 3 weeks ago!! I was skeptical at first.. I just put some in my hair (mostly edges) after I wash/condition every week and also in the morning and before I go to bed. NOW, my edges are completely grown in, no bald spot! Not only that, but my hair has become so much stronger and there is hardly any breakage when I comb through it. It's literally a miracle, I've been looking around for a good product for so long and this is it, would really recommend to those with thinning/damaged edges.

      Comments about Cantu Shea Butter Grow Strong Strengthening Treatment, 6.1 oz:

      The first 2 bottles I purchased did wonders for my hair and the colour differed. The product seems to have been altered in a bad way. It is now white and reeks havov on my hair making it unmanageable and I can no longer use it before I flat press my hair and it no longer gives a sheen.

      Comments about Cantu Shea Butter Grow Strong Strengthening Treatment, 6.1 oz:

      My hair HATES this stuff! I tried it, put it away, tried it again. My hair just does not get along with this stuff. And to top it off, when I use it, the sweet smell ends up making me want to barf. I think I'm going to buy Profectiv again.
      I'm a type 4 natural.

        Comments about Cantu Shea Butter Grow Strong Strengthening Treatment, 6.1 oz:

        I have very thick curly hair that I have to condition daily in order to keep my hair strong and moisturized. This product adds a nice shine to your hair. I think the smell is nice but a little over powering once it's applied for the first couple of hours. Of course this leaves a type of film in your hair, nothing that will flake out or is overly greasy or oily. If I run my fingers through my hair I don't feel the need to wash them or dry them off. It feels more like a light moisturizer.

          Product is very smooth but only use a little at a time. To much use will cause your hair to become very greasy and dull.

            Comments about Cantu Shea Butter Grow Strong Strengthening Treatment, 6.1 oz:

            I've been purchasing this product (and loving it) for four years and I can definitely say something has changed. Even the consistency has changed. I almost thought I ordered the break cure strengthening treatment. Where the old formula left my hair soft and moisturized, the new formula leaves my hair dry and brittle. And I applied this product to my freshly washed and conditioned hair!

            What is more troubling is that even after I added another moisturizer to my hair, it was still dry; almost as if I poured super glue in my hair. Perhaps they added more silicone? Whatever the case, it's enough to warrant Cantu to rename this product. The change was so drastic I don't trust Cantu anymore, which is sad because I loved their products. Now I have to go through the trial and error process of finding replacements.
