Go from Straight to Curly with Cantu Shea Butter
Yes, my hair went from heat damaged and bone straight to a naturally curly Afro in less than a year with Cantu Shea Butter Natural Hair Curling Cream!
For every black woman, the subject of natural hair can be a difficult and complex topic at times.
As a young black female, I wondered if it was just us who engage in the nightly ritual of wrapping our hair in a bonnet when we sleep? Always explaining to my counterparts why I couldn’t just be hanging outdoors during humid weather.
It took me years to come to terms with my natural hair. My mother used to relax my hair all the time when I was younger, since my hair could become a bit unruly and a mess at times.
She finally gave me the reigns in seventh grade, and I was set free to do my own hair as I please. At first, I kept putting heat on it. Every Sunday I would sit down in my chair, with my music blasting, in front of my mirror and use my flat iron to damage my follicles even more.
I had no distinguishable curl pattern, I was plagued with split ends every few weeks, and I was a little ashamed of wearing my natural hair out because there was so much heat damage on my head.
So out of guilt, I kept straightening my hair up until my junior year of high school.
Repairing the Damage
That’s when I called it quits. Mind you, 2016 was the year for women of color to embrace their natural hair, and I wanted to be apart of the movement.
I wanted to be carefree with an Afro that the 70’s would be proud of. I wanted my hair to prosper, so I saved up all my money, placed an order on Amazon and stocked up on natural hair products.
Ladies, If you want repair years of heat damage within a matter of months! I suggest Cantu Shea Butter, or any of Cantu’s products. All of them, and I mean all of their products work to moisturize, emphasize and bring your natural hair back to life.
My hair went from bone straight to a curly Afro within a few months. I refrained from putting heat on it, co washed almost every other day. I made sure to take care of my hair by wrapping it every night, or doing twist outs that stimulate hair growth.
Cantu Shea Butter and Cantu products are extremely gentle. Their leave in conditioners and coconut curling creams in particular are not harsh at all on my hair.
Brushing it through damp hair left my curls soft and defined, even when dry. My hair began retaining moisture and showing less and less signs of heat damage that was built up over the years.
It did a complete 180, and I hadn’t even realize what type of curls I had until they started growing in and defining themselves quickly.
The above pictures are only months apart, you can see how stretched out my curls were, and how tight they became thanks to Cantu’s products.
