Cantu Define & Shine Custard Review


2016-09-04 18.06.08

Cantu is a beauty brand I have never tried before but, have seen countless times on the shelves in black beauty shops. Fellow curly girl and inspiration Clematique did a video recently on using the products from the range, and since then they have been lodged in my mind. Before my Portugal holiday, I purchased this product from the range because I was keen for a new curl hold. My Budget buy from boots was just not doing it for my lately, I needed to spice things up. This custard is also CG friendly as it does not contain any: MINERAL OIL, SULFATES, PARABENS, SILICONES, PHTHALATES, GLUTEN, PARAFFIN or PROPYLENE.

Cantu claims this product gives:

Perfect hold for long lasting styles, Delivers brilliant shine & perfect hold,  And Helps reduce hair bulk by elongating curls

One of the first things that struck me when using this product was the how much of a soft jelly consistency it was when I scooped it from the tube. Only then to melt into an oil like cream when I rubbed it into my palms. When applying this directly to my hair it feels soft to the touch and feels as if I’m simply putting an oily water in my hair. which I like very much! the best products are those that don’t feel too heavy, feel like your using hardly anything and yet get the most effective results. Cantu pretty much does this. While I am light handed and tend to under-apply a hair product, this one does need a bit more, despite the illusion of using a lot when rubbing the coin sized amount in your palms. However, it doesn’t create that crunchie look a lot of curly girls hate to have. And produces some

This curl custard does not create that crunchie look a lot of curly girls hate to have, instead, it produces some well-defined curls. I love this texture as it feels light weight and reminds me of the Kinky Curly Curling Custard, which I haven’t used for a long time now, but remember how well I enjoyed its texture and hold! I will continue to use this as my main curl hold and hope to try my Cantu products!
