Product Review : Cantu Shea Butter Leave- In Repair Cream

Have you ever bought a cult product because everyone practically uses it and talks about it just to see the hype?

This was my issue with this Cantu Shea Butter Cream. I saw it on the counter, despite the price purchased it because it was popular. I wouldn’t say I regret it…..yet. I just feel like I’m tied down to such a big tub of leave-in.

Can I just say that I absolutely hate the smell of this product. Which is why I would be giving it out very soon.

From the ingredient list, It’s obviously a good product. A balanced leave-in that is laden with shea butter. This is probably it’s selling point. Then again, my hair absorbs any and every product so the issue of penetration is settled. It also has a thick white creamy consistency. Not too thick and not too runny but just right. I used it solely on wash days. Paired with my whipped hair butter, it does a good job of keeping my hair moisturized for about a week so I have no qualms about it but the smell. I haven’t noticed anything overly special or fantastic about it so it’s just good.


Will I be repurchasing? I’m not so sure. It’s quite pricey but considering the size, it’s actually fair.
