MANE Events – Stylin’ & Profilin’ with Cantu Shea Butter for Natural Hair Coconut Curling Cream

Yea, I have been OD’n on the new product I received in my August curlBOX, Cantu Shea Butter for Natural Hair Coconut Curling Cream!  I just can’t seem to get enough of it it seems, but really, I am really trying to see what all I can do with this styler.

You see, every styler is not created equally.  What one styler can do for me (i.e. twist out, wash ‘n go, twist set, etc.) another styler may not.  That’s just how the cookie crumbles, but this styler… Well, I’ll just let you see for yourself!

I first decided to try it on my signature twist out.  I have been using Shea Moisture (and still will), but I wanted to try this Cantu Coconut Curling Cream to see what it BE like and the performance was awesome!
Day One

Day Three
With my sis, Kristen.  Do you see my reversion?
‘Fro Hawk-Ish
After day three, I just styled my hair a different way because the humidity got to it.  The product did a good job, though.  I would have liked a little more hold, and not hold in the sense of a gel-like hold, but  hold more of my definition I achieved from the twist out vs. the definition of my natural curls.  Nonetheless, I got to enjoy my hair in this ‘fro hawk-ish style for a day+:
Days Three & Four
Natural curls POPPIN’!
And the heat was no joke.  I ended up putting my hair into a bun and wearing it like that for two days.  I used the cream to moisturize my hair and it carried well into day two.
Twist Set
Finally, I got a chance to rewash my hair and I started twisting… with no real direction.  And I didn’t have my camera recording the action, either.  UGH…  But this is the end result.

My twists are veryyyyy curly!  I twisted on wet hair which probably also helped with the curly look I have.  It also has contributed to this massive amount of shrinkage, but I don’t mind… for now.  I’ll just wear them pinned for a while… progressing to it out in curls.  I’m hoping I won’t have to do my hair this week.  We shall see…

So far, the best style I’ve achieved from the Cantu is anything that is showcasing my natural curls (hence, the name CURLING CREAM… duh, pRoy).  However, due to the heat, I don’t think it’s fair to limit it to just one style.  I will revisit this when the weather changes to something a little more bearable and my hair is able to withstand!
