With more and more Black women wearing their hair natural, Cantu, a beauty line dedicated to all natural hair types, created a new, four-piece collection of hair masques for women who desire to use products with fewer harsh chemicals.

The Cantu collection is designed to have high-quality formulas that nourish and protect hair from styling damage. With no mineral oil, sulfates, parabens, silicones, phthalates, gluten, paraffin and more. What can be better? Well, sis, all of Cantu for Natural Hair products benefit from 100% pure shea butter for added moisture and nourishment for all hair types.

So, what does my hair have to say about it?

In general, I love the smell of all the masks, and I love that two of the masks incorporate the use of charcoal. The use of activated charcoal helps to reduce dandruff, redness and oily scalp, pulling out toxins and purifying hair. After using this mask once a week for two weeks, I already notice a significant difference in hair growth, softness and oil buildup. I also really enjoyed the Rhassoul Clay Masque, which left my hair super hydrated and frizz free. But, I have to say my favorite of the masks had to be the Bentonite Clay Masque because it left my curls defined, hydrated, soft and shiny as the mask said it would.
