Cantu Hair Products Give Away

I was under the impression that this is Catu was a new natural hair brand however after further research I found that it has been around for a few years and in is getting good reviews in the natural hair community.

My initial encounter with the brand was at The Natural Hair Week I was first very impressed by the product knowledge and the enthusiasm of the staff on the stand, one of which sold me on the Cantu Deep Treatment Mask which unfortunately was sold out L Luckily Cantu would have a stand at Afro Hair and Beauty so I would be able to purchase some there.

In the meantime I was given a load of samples of the Creamy Hair Lotion which I used to moisturize my hair and sealed with coconut oil. The following day after taking out my braids and washing my hair.

My first thoughts what that the product smelt lovely and was moisturizing without feeling heavy.

I am currently rocking Crochet braids so I can’t  really speak on how the product worked for me long term however my hair dresser did ask me what I had used on my hair and commented that it let my hair feeling very soft.

When Attending Afro Hair & Beauty I was finally able to purchase the Cantu Deep Treatment Mask.

As I was so impressed with the brand I asked the staff to recommend a hair care system that I could give away in a prize draw for my readers. So here we go.

Afro Hair & Beauty Live 2015 Review

After a crazy day at Curlvolution I made sure I was tucked up in bed so I could be up bright early and energetic for Afro Hair & Beauty Baby!
I have been going for the last two years and always had a great time so I was excited to go again.
The intention was to get there early so that we could get around most of the stands before it gets too packed but honestly that never works our for me

I also was able to check out some of the activities on the main stage.

  felt the host really worked hard to engage the crowded telling jokes and getting them involved with games for prizes

I even won a goodie bag of Palmers goodies Yay me!
No matter how hard I plan there is so much excitement going on that I lose the plot and and up running round like a headless chicken with a debit card.
I have to pat myself on the back for somewhat restraining myself. 

I had noticed last year that a lot of the products on offer has a natural slant, moving away from chemicals and typical 'bad ingredients' which have plagued products marketed towards black hair less lye and more Shea butter please.
It was great to see stylists at work especially Felicia Leatherwood
 who was on the Beautiful Texture’s stand she also had workshop at Curlvolution which I found very helpful as she explained the different hair types but more importantly how to use products I may already be familiar with. 

I loved this year's show and I would definitely go again.
I have to mention the ORS stand which looked amazing this year with a vending machine which dispensed ORS products when you instagramed a picture using the ORS hashtag there was also hair 

demos going on and a ORS pop up shop as well as a VIP area

 which gave me the very welcome opportunity to take quick break and relax with a glass of champagne and lemon sorbet. 
There was also branded mini cupcakes and cape pops but I am pleased to say I was good and resisted not that I can say the same about my companions…
It gave me the opportunity to chat with the representatives about some of the newer products
Sealicious range which was released at the day before and the Monoi oil range that I purchased at The Natural Hair Week. Unfortunately as I have my hair in crochet braids I have not yet been able to test the products.
I had been very eager to check a new company called Cantu which I was introduced to during The Natural Hair week. I was particularly interested a product called:  Deep Treatment Masque but it was sold out 
However I was able to purchase some today woop woop!
Unfortunately I had to leave early as I had planned to drive up to Melksham to visit my grand mother
But I took a load of pictures that you can check out.
