Product Showcase: Cantu Shea Butter Leave-in Conditioning Repair Cream

This is a reasonably-priced item that I find at Wal-Mart, Wal-Green, CVS, or any dug store; on the "ethnic" hair aisle. I would never use it as a leave-in. When I would spray my hair with water to re-style it, the cream would coagulate in my hair,leaving me with white beads everywhere.One thing I have noticed, is that people with hair textures of 3c and below don't have the "white-bead coagulation" problem. So as a leave-in it is best for women with textures between 2b-3c.

However... I do use it as a deep conditioner. I apply it to damp hair with a processing cap. Then I leave it in overnight or sit 45 minutes under a hooded-dryer.Another reason I like it is because shea butter is at the top of the ingredients list,as it should be.
