Review: Cantu Shea Butter for Natural Hair Deep Treatment Masque

In my search to find a good deep conditioner available locally, I picked up Cantu Shea Butter for Natural Hair Deep Treatment Masque. Check out my first impressions post from a few weeks ago. Here's the full review.

Water (Aqua), Canola Oil, Cetearyl Alcohol/Ceteareth 20, Glycerin, Fragrance, Beeswax, Cetyl Alcohol, Butyrospermum Parkii Butter (Shea), Glycol Stearate, Polyquanterium-10, Cocos Nucifera Oil (Coconut), Persea Gratissima Oil (Avocado), Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis Oil (Sweet Almond), Simmondsia Chinensis Oil (Jojoba), Olea Europaea Fruit Oil (Olive), Mangifera Indica (Mango) Seed Butter, Melia Azadirachta Seed Oil (Neem), Daucus Carota Sativa Seed Oil (Carrot), Macadamia Ternifolia Seed Oil (Macadamia), Glycine Soja (Soybean) Oil, Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil (Argan), Aloe Vera (Aloe Barbadensis) Leaf Juice, Lonicera Japonica Flower Extract (Honeysuckle), Laminara Cloustoni Extract (Sea Kelp), Salvia Officinalis (Sage) Leaf Extract, Vitis Vinifera Seed Extract (Grape), Melia Azadirachta Seed Oil (Neem), Silk Amino Acids, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin.

This is a very thick deep conditioner and smells like pina colada! It's very smooth and applies easily. Whenever I use it, my hair is very defined. That's what I like about the product; unfortunately, that's all I liked.

The Deep Treatment doesn't penetrate my hair but leaves it feeling coated. When I rinse this out, I want to start the whole wash process again. It doesn't soften, strengthen or moisturize my hair. The thickness and weight of it define my hair, but that's all it does for me.

I think it's the beeswax that's giving me problems. It's just sitting on my hair.

The fragrance alone is so nice, I wish this product had worked for me.

Cantu Shea Butter for Natural Hair Deep Treatment Masque is available in super stores, drugstores, and beauty supply stores. This 12oz can be purchased for $7-$15 depending on where you go.

Would I repurchase? No, it didn't work for me.

Below is how I'd rate the product in the following categories:


Price: 5/5
Packaging: 5/5
Fragrance: 5/5
Performance: 2/5 (the definition is quite nice!)

  1. I agree! I love the ingredients in this product but it did nothing for my hair. I tried mixing olive, coconut, avovado oil, honey ang glycerin but i my hair still doesnt like it.

    1. Hi, thanks for commenting! I ended up giving mine away. I recently picked up the curling cream. I'm hoping I'll have better results with it. The availability, price, and fragrance of this line are so great that I hope something will work for me.

    2. The listed ingredients are excellent! And yes, it does smell like pina colada. I love it!!! It didn't give me ALL of the moisture my hair needs, but it makes it soft and smell really nice. I'm getting ready to put some on my hair now and wrap my hair in a plastic cap overnight and then wash out in the morning to give it a final test.

    3. The fragrance is amazing! Hopefully your results will be better after using it overnight. Let me know.

      Kinks ;-)
