Today I want to tell you guys about a new product I tried. A few weeks ago, I got an itch to try something new. I had a few products in mind and finally narrowed my list down a bit. So in my haste, I headed to Walgreens and was torn between two products.
Every since I went natural, I've heard nothing but good things about the results people experienced from using Cantu Shea Butter Leave In Conditioner. I also reached out to folks on Instagram asking why they liked it, and the #1 response was the moisture it delivered. I've been interested in trying it, but was on the fence about one or two of the ingredients, but thought this day, "whatever" and decided to give it go. However while in Walgreens, I came across the New Cantu Shea Butter for Natural Hair Creamy Hair Lotion, and noticed the few ingredients I was concerned about in the Cantu Shea Butter Leave In Conditioner, weren't in the Creamy Hair Lotion - BUT, I came to Walgreens to buy the Leave In Conditioner, so I was not completely sold on this new stuff!
One hour later, after opening both products, smelling each, examining their consistency, putting one down, picking the other one up (and repeating this process several times), I left Walgreens with 1.) The Cantu Shea Butter for Natural Hair Creamy Hair Lotion and 2.) A heavy feeling of buyers remorse (because I did NOT come to the store for this!).
So I went home, did my normal hair routine, used the Cantu Shea Butter for Natural Hair Creamy Hair Lotion and sealed with KBB's Beauty Boss 101 and below is my story:

|Creamy lotion type consistency. This is how much I used per section (a bit more if I felt the need)|
|Morning after I took the braid/twists out|
|Day 1 hair. All done!|
|Day 3 and still going strong!|
The Mane Verdict
As the years have progressed, I've come to understand my hair and know pretty much what it will and won't like. Sometimes, you think a product is going to work and the results are "aight" at best, and not worth a second investment of time and/or money.
I'm actually glad I took the chance on the Cantu Shea Creamy Hair Lotion! I have nothing but good things to say about it and here's my list:
- The moisture is off the chain
- I like how light and fluffy and full my hair looks and feels
- I like the definition - without the sacrifice of volume (best of both worlds for me!)
- I used it every 2-3 days to re-moisturize my hair. Didn't need to, but did so more so out of habit
- No build up type feeling after using it for several days
I wanna hear from you all! Have you tried the Cantu Shea Butter Creamy Hair Lotion? What about the other products from them?
