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.

    I've been using this product for 3 years and it WAS the best but something has changed the product is not the same I don't know what went wrong... I am so DISAPPOINTED it now leaves my hair dry and hard I don't know what the hell happened but I don't like it any more. It used to be cream in colour and now it is white and not as creamy as it used to be. Cantu makers I don't know what the [*] you did with this batch but you better get back to the original formula.

      I found this product browsing on the drugstore.com site. I was curious even though I bought a "similar" product a few weeks earlier. I paid $17.99 for the other item at a salon and it is sitting on the shelf collecting dust. This product is light enough for everyday use and it smoothes my hair down nicely. I love the way it smells. Much better than the fake "rose" smell of the other product. I could have bought 3 of this item for what I paid for the other product and this one works much better. I also bought the super shine hair silk and I love it too.

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

        I have been using this product for the past year. Unfortunately, the last batch I ordered was completely different than the previous versions. The consistancy was totally different this time. Before this product left my hair soft and moisturized. Now it leaves my hair harder and dryer. I don't know if Cantu sent out a faulty batch but I am really dissapointed with this product. I won't buy online again.

        This does not seem to be the same product that I ordered several months ago. I was pleased with that product so I ordered again. I was sorely disappointed. It even looks different. The new product is white in color whereas the other product was a yellowish in color

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

          I normally shampoo, condition and then add styling products. Now this is the only styling product I use after shampooing and conditioning. It gives my curls definition, shine, and absolutely no frizz whatsoever. It also makes detangling a snap. Anyone with very curly and long hair knows about the knots and the "dreads" that occur daily with curly hair. This product is really wonderful, I love it, and would recommend it highly.

            I use this product and the repair cream as well as the shea butter super shine and feel that alternating between the three is working to improve my hair. My hair had become very damaged and now it looks shinier, healthier and much improved texture. I am drinking a shake that iimproves hair health along with the hair vitamins and feel that all combined and taking better care of my hair-- is working.
            The products are impressive thus far and I have nothing negative to report.

            I could feel the difference once I put the Cantu Grow Strong Strengthening Treatment on my hair. It immediately makes it so much easier to comb through my hair which tangles easily. It doesn't smell that great, but if you use it sparingly you will be fine. It is a smoky oily smell.

              Its a nice inexpensive hair moisturizer. I like the fact that ingredients are simple yet effective. My hair is really curly 3c/4a. You don't have to use it everyday. Its keeps it moist for at least 2 or 3 days.

                  I use this product every day and so far I have been satisfied with the result. Before using this product my hair was dull, dry and I had a lot of breakage but since I started using this product my hair looks shinier, feels softer and I have had less breakage. I would recommend this product for anyone who has had problems with their hair.
