Beauty bargain

cantuThis week, we asked DolceDolce’s Neisa Caraway to review Cantu’s Shea Butter leave-in conditioning hair repair cream. Neisa prefers natural products to care for her curly hair, so Cantu was perfect for her. Cantu offers a large range of conditioning and styling products containing natural ingredients such as Shea butter and coconut oil. With products priced at under $10 each,  Cantu is a true beauty bargain. 

Here is Neisa’s review: 

My lovely Aunt Sonja flew in from San Diego in early August, and we spent the week catching up, reminiscing, sightseeing, and shopping. We had a ball! 

On her last day in town she offered to braid my hair, and wouldn’t take no for an answer. So after watching half a season of “Orange is the New Black” on TV my hair was in braids. I always thoroughly enjoy the freedom and ease that braids provide; it’s a true get-up-and-go hair style. No combs, brushes, trimmings, deep conditioners – nothing! All that my aunt instructed me to do was cleanse, moisturize in the morning, and wrap the braids in satin scarves at night. Sounds easy right? Well maybe it is for people who aren’t as hard-headed as me; I got caught up in the ease of it all and neglected my poor hair. 

So when I took the braids down my hair was super dry and brittle. Cantu’s Shea Butter leave-in conditioning hair repair cream showed up in my life like a little heavenly gift from my guardian angel. This curly girl-friendly conditioner is free of parabens, silicone, and mineral oil. I apply it to my semi-dry hair with a little coconut oil. This combo leaves my hair smelling like a piña colada with a healthy shine, and above all no frizz. 

What I think is best about this product is that it is lightweight. Once my hair dries it’s not limp and greasy, yet my curls are defined. It’s looking a lot better than it did when the braids first came down.

I’m impressed with this product, especially since you can pick up at Walmart for $4.99. I’m looking forward to seeing how it affects my hair in the long run.
