This is the ONLY hair product I use, other than a mild shampoo-- it has replaced rinse-out conditioners, mousse, serums, and the thousands and thousands of other products I've tried (and hated!) for my coarse, curly, color-treated hair. I have reordered it many times and recommend it strongly for anyone with Mediterranean, Jewish, or multi-racial hair types. Over time, this product has actually improved the condition of my hair (something I thought was impossible from an externally-applied product). I simply don't struggle with the shapeless, dull frizz anymore!There is a secret to using this, because too much will make hair feel "crispy" and look stiff. You must use it on damp hair, right from the shower-- not on barely-damp or dry hair, or it will clump up! Concentrate the product on the ends of the hair and work through thoroughly with your hands or a comb, massaging the product evenly through hair. When your hair dries, simply run your fingers through it to "break up" any crispies. You will have shiny, soft, defined, fresh-smelling curls. I have gone high-end and low-end in my search for the right hair product-- and it was waiting for me for [$]!

The product works great. I use it on myself (kinky natural black-american hair) and my daughters (who have long, softer ringlett curls). It's a great conditioner and styling lotion. And mostly, it smells cocanut-ey and wonderful. But sometimes, when you start getting down to the bottom of the jar, it starts to smell really fishy and gross. I don't really know why, and it doesn't always happen. And it hasn't stopped me from buying the product. But I do sometimes have to throw out the last quarter or so of the gar because it starts to stink.

    I put a dab on my finger tip and apply to wet hair. It keeps the curls loose and soft as opposed to the hard feel and wet look when using mousse

        I was looking to condition relaxed hair, but this product did not help. This product goes on wet. Once dry, it leaves hair brittle and stiff with a residue.

        They changed the formula.
        This used to be my go to hair product.

        Now I prefer the SheaMoisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie or SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter Deep Treatment Masque.

        The Cantu has the best smell of all 3, but that's not enough for me to keep using it.

        They need to stop changing the formulas of products after they see that people like it.

        Don't "fix" it if it isn't broke.

          I use it after every wash, my hair grows and gets thicker from cantu products. It smells great and you don't have to be nervous about other people touching your hair and saying its greasy. I just want to roll around in cantu and marry it.......... -_- I really love it!

            I have two daughters, one with very curly fine hair type and the other one very nappy thick hair. Both have dry hair. I have tried almost everything there is available in the market until I came across the Cantu Shea Butter leave in conditioning repair cream. I Found the perfect cream for both my daughters. It works on different types of hair and I just love the scent it leaves behind. Their hair does not look as dry and for my daughter that has curly hair. Her hair looks amazing. Very happy with this product.

            Comments about Cantu Shea Butter Leave In Conditioning Repair Cream, 16 fl oz:

            This product smells so good, that I get comments on it all the time. However, for my hair I prefer something very rich that I can use in smaller quantities. The amount I use in my hair (about 2 teaspoons) adds a lot of moisture (as in water) to my hair, and makes it harder to air dry afterward. I like the amount of shea butter in here, but there's too much additional filler that is unnecessary. My solution is to use a tiny dab of it mixed with an equal size dab of virgin coconut oil. My hair is thick and wavy though. I wouldn't recommend this for fine hair. I'll probably keep looking to find a more ideal product for my hair, but when I do I'll miss the smell of this one!

                I have very thick & dry hair. For the past few years, I've been having problems with my hair being very dry especially after blow-drying my hair. I purchased this product a few months ago and used it only twice. I now started using this as a daily moisturizer for my hair. Every night & morning, I apply this all over my hair, including the roots & then I used Extra Virgin Coconut Oil to put over it (moisturize & seal). I've been doing this for about two days & can already tell the difference with my hair's texture. It is more soft, manageable & shiny. It doesn't make my hair very greasy surpisingly, being that I use Coconut Oil which is very thick. It dosen't leave any residue in my hair. I most definitely will be stocking up on this item. I Love it!

                  Cantu Shea Butter Leave In Conditioning Repair Cream

                   – You want your hair to feel soft and silky, look shiny and be easy to style, but the effects of weather and styling are constantly working against you, making your hair dry, brittle, dull and difficult to manage. Cantu Shea Butter Leave In Conditioning Repair Cream can help you to fight back against the forces that leave your hair looking less than its best with a nourishing blend of natural moisturizers.

                  A Rich Blend of Natural Oils and Butters



                  Cantu Shea Butter Leave In Conditioning Repair Cream is formulated to use the best of nature's hydrators to condition and repair your tresses. The formula contains a rich shea butter base that deeply penetrates dry strands to replenish moisture and nutrients. In addition, the cream provides the tresses with soybean oil, lanolin oil and corn oil for added hydration as well as soy proteins and collagen for strengthening weakened strands.

                  Protects, Hydrates and Tames



                  Due to its unique formula, Cantu Shea Butter Leave In Conditioning Repair Cream provides multiple benefits with every application. The formula helps to soften the hair, leaving it feeling silkier. By sealing the strands with moisture, the cream cuts down on the likelihood of frizz and helps to provide protection from the heat of the blow-dryer, flat iron or curling iron. With regular use, the cream helps to restore strength and flexibility to the tresses, making split ends and breakage far less likely to occur. You can apply the conditioner as an overnight treatment or comb it through wet hair before styling for beautiful results.

                  A Brand You Can Truly Trust



                  The Cantu line of hair care products is made by Advanced Beauty, Inc. Founded in 2003, the American company is dedicated to bringing spa quality beauty products to women everywhere at prices that are affordable. Their commitment to quality makes Cantu Shea Butter Leave In Conditioning Repair Cream a formula that delivers on its promises for hair that is dry, damaged and prone to frizz.
