Cantu Shea Butter Define & Shine Custard is a must-have for curly hair. It moisturizes, defines curls, and adds a beautiful shine that lasts. The thick consistency allows for easy application, but the scent might be too strong for some. Overall, it's a reliable product for achieving gorgeous, defined curls.
After testing lots of finishing styling products ( gels, mousses, foams etc) I fell for this custard. It brings hold and definition to my curls. It feels a bit sticky at the beginning while applying it to wet curls. But you need to give it a time to set and then start blow drying with the diffuser. Then use the oil or liquid crystals to break the cust. I love the results.
(my hair is 3B-3C) I watched a YouTube video about this product and decided to try it—like many of us curly and coily folks I steered away from Cantu for a long time. But this stuff works! It does what it says: defines my curls and makes them shine. They're a little crunchy but I like it that way. Plus on the second day they are soft but still have definition. I like to put it on after using the Curl Activator (in the tall bottle). Don't use too much—it does flake if you use a ton. I have about 3 inches of hair (stretched) just on top of my head and only need about a teaspoon.
You can feel the scent, but it goes away almost immediately after putting on hair. The quality is very good. When using any product for the first time, you need to get used to it, because at first I was putting too much on my hair. So be careful with that. The size of the package is enormous, so it goes almost a year. But it really depends on your hair structure. I can't put too much product on my hair, they will feel dirty, so I use a small amount every time. Take into consideration your hair type.

I like this product. However, I have an issue with the brands itself. This specific product has nice ingredients but some of their other products say "no silicone" yet feature pvp. Or say "no mineral oil" yet feature petrolatum. If you're choosy about haircare products, read the ingredients very carefully. I like this specific product but I don't like this brand.
