Lemme take you back to the end of January…
I was in the midst of a mini meltdown, feeling completely overwhelmed with mommy-ing and SO looking forward to my upcoming weekend getaway when some unexpected yet much-needed pampering came through thanks to Cantu!
What was supposed to be a quick stop at the Cantu Salon Takeover to drop off something for a friend turned into me sitting at a shampoo bowl preparing to get a wash, blow dry and style… HA!!Here’s how it went down…
As I stopped in, my friend suggested I listen to a quick spiel on Cantu before I go. Despite my rush, I thought sticking around a few minutes couldn’t hurt. And that’s when Global Sales & Marketing Director Dametria Mustin stepped in to give me an overview of the original Cantu line (including some things I had no idea existed!) as well as an intro the NEW new — a complete Men’s Collection and their Cantu Refresh Apple Cider Vinegar line!
Knowing how beneficial apple cider vinegar can be for our hair, I was intrigued that there was now a collection with ACV as the main ingredient!
What’s in the Collection?
The Cantu Refresh Root Relief with Apple Cider Vinegar + Peppermint Oil is formulated to refresh and cleanse your scalp without water which is especially useful while wearing protective styles. It’s got a convenient nozzle so you can easily apply it to your scalp and contains peppermint oil to soothe itchiness and irritation.
The Cantu Refresh Dry Co-Wash with Apple Cider Vinegar + Tea Tree Oil is an interesting cocktail — part dry shampoo, part conditioner — that cleanses and conditions in one step! It absorbs excess oils and doesn’t leave any residue on the hair… I saw this LIVE! Great if you work out a lot.
Finally, the Cantu Refresh Root Rinse with Apple Cider Vinegar + Tea Tree Oil replaces your shampoo to give your scalp a gentle detox without stripping the hair, leaving it revitalized with a healthy shine. This would be great after taking down a long-term protective style or if you just need a deeper cleanse… and it just so happened I was SO in need of one that day!
After getting the scoop on all the newness, I was coaxed into getting a quick wash and style! LOL! So off to the shampoo bowl where my stylist cleansed my hair and scalp with the Root Rinse.
It. Felt. So. GOOD!
After a quick blow out, MzStarling hooked me up with a super cute asymmetrical french braid complete with LAAAAAID edges! I couldn’t leave without snapping a pic with my friend, photog Lauren Lane and Cantu Global Stylist herself (+ #momgoals & #fitgoals) Maria Antoinette.
