Product Review: Cantu Deep Treatment Masque

Note to self: when someone advises you about a cult product, take their word for it. They might just save you some money.

This was my dilemma with the Cantu Deep Treatment Masque which I got during the Beauty Africa Expo. Fortunately for me, I got sample packs at discounted prices so I wasn’t so pained about it.

So, what about it?

Award Winning formula penetrates deep into the hair shaft for an intense treatment to repair and replenish over-processed damaged hair. Made with pure shea butter and formulated without harsh ingredients.


  • Restores & strengthens dry, damaged hair
  • Great for over-processed hair
  • Increases hair elasticity for reduced breakage



Thoroughly coat damp hair section by section. Let set for 30 minutes then rinse with cool water.

For extremely dry, damaged hair cover hair with a plastic cap and apply heat or leave-in overnight then rinse thoroughly.



For the first time in a while, I followed the directions by co-washing and applying the product on damp hair. I went ahead to sit under my thermal cap for about 20 – 25 minutes. When I was ready, I rinsed out with cold water. Can I just say that it did nothing for my hair? Nothing. Nada. Zilch. No moisture, no softness or even curl definition. I wasn’t too mad because Deola of Omogemura had warned me.

On the flip side, it’s really thick and smells heavenly. It also has great slip and a little goes a long way. In fact, I wasn’t able to finish one sample pack. I just used half of it for the whole of my head. I just wished it worked. This means, the next time I use it, I would have to mix it with moisturizing agents like honey and/or oils.


No, I would not repurchase.

Price: N400/pack
