STRAIGHT STYLE

Be sure to treat your curls with Cantu’s conditioners for the heat styled, straight look. Use Cantu before using curling irons, flat irons, and blow dryers to protect from heat damage.


Styling tips:

  • Less is more. Use a small amount of product for best results, revealing silky, smooth, straight hair
  • Use flat irons and curling irons on completely dry hair only
  • Start with a lower heat setting and work your way up if needed

Recommended products for heat straightened styles to replenish and rehydrate:

  • Cantu Daily Oil Moisturiser
  • Cantu Grow Strong Strengthening Treatment
  • Cantu Leave-In Conditioning Repair Cream

WAVY STYLE

Prevent frizz, flyaways and tangles. Try a wavy look rather than a heat style, with a touch of Cantu’s conditioner and a few sprays of Cantu’s holding mist for a textured but wavy look.


Styling tip:
For intense moisture to help frizzy hair, apply the Cantu Leave-In Conditioning Repair Cream to the ends of your hair.

Recommended products for wavy styles to maintain a frizz-free finish.

  • Cantu Sulfate-Free Cleansing Cream Shampoo
  • Cantu Sulfate-Free Hydrating Cream Conditioner
  • Cantu Coil Calm Detangler
  • Cantu Shine & Hold Mist

HOW OFTEN SHOULD I TRIM MY HAIR?

If you’re taking care of your hair and styling it in protective styles then you should be ok to trim the hair quarterly. I use the season change as a guideline for a hair overhaul. That’s usually when you consider a new hair style, new products and therefore a hair trim too.

CAN YOU MIX CANTU PRODUCTS WITH OTHER BRANDS?

I’d suggest using the whole Cantu range together as they work in synergy. Each ingredient in the range has been chosen to complement each other so following the system i.e. Cantu Sulfate-Free Cleansing Shampoo, Cantu Sulfate-Free Hydrating Conditioner and Cantu Leave-In Conditioning Repair Cream is a good regime to follow.

I’M GOING ON HOLIDAY, HOW SHOULD I LOOK AFTER MY HAIR?

I’d suggest styling hair in a protective style like braids or cornrows. This is a low manipulation style which avoids damage. It also allows you to dip into the water as you wish without worrying too much about messing the hair or shrinkage. Cantu Daily Oil Moisturiser is a great product to use, it replenishes moisture to the hair and scalp and can protect from the sun.

IF YOU COULD RECOMMEND ONLY ONE CANTU PRODUCT, WHAT WOULD IT BE?

Cantu Leave-In Conditioning Repair Cream is without doubt my hero product. It can be used daily and is easily incorporated into any hair regime. It adds moisture and moisture is the key to hair health and hair growth. It can be applied all over, with a focus on the ends as that’s the oldest part of the hair and can help prevent breakage.

I’M LOOKING TO STOP RELAXING MY HAIR AND WANT TO TRANSITION INTO NATURAL. WHERE SHALL I START?

It’s best to start with some research. Search the net, read blogs and visit an expert. You need to first decide what protective styles you will consider whilst you grow out the relaxed hair. Are you happy rocking braids or cornrows? You may even be brave enough to go in for the big chop, which is often advised for hair health. First things first, book yourself into a salon and get advice from a professional. You’ll also need to consider a completely new set of products, something that is more natural and excludes parabens and minerals.

IS IT SAFE TO COLOUR MY NATURAL HAIR?

Colour is a great way of adding a little vividness and dimension to the hair but you’re using peroxide which exposes the cuticle and can cause the hair to look dryer and become weaker. Firstly, seek the advice of a professional who will be able to advise you on what’s best for you. If you do choose to get colour make sure you continue to nourish the hair with products like Cantu Leave-In Conditioning Repair Cream and Cantu Daily Oil Moisturiser.

WOULD YOU ADVISE A NIGHT TIME ROUTINE?

It’s always good to have a regimen in the evening. How you care for your hair at night all depends on how you wear your hair. My personal night time regime is to part the hair into sections, applying Cantu Leave-In Conditioning Repair Cream. I’ll then apply a product like the Cantu Moisturising Twist and Lock Gel or Cantu Coconut Curling Cream and twist it down in section. I’ll cover my hair with a satin or silk scarf, as anything else draws out moisture. This prepares my hair so that in the morning all I need to do is undo the twists, finger comb and apply Cantu Coconut Oil Shine and Hold Mist for sheen and light hold.

HOW CAN I AVOID SHRINKAGE?

We all know the pain of getting caught in the rain and experiencing shrinkage. Unfortunately the air naturally carries humidity and in hot weather, where we sweat a lot more, you just can’t avoid it. You can limit its effects by applying Cantu Define and Shine Custard or the Cantu Coconut Curling Cream which helps to elongate curls.
