I always see this stuff while shopping for hair stuff. Does anyone know how it works? I have naturally curly hair and I’m having a hard time finding a product that works good for me. My hair is not ever greasy but lately it’s been really dry and frizzy. I can’t find a product that defines my curls and makes them have the natural look all at the same time. If anyone has any ideas for me let me know thank you.
I love this product in terms of stretching my hair but I can't really figure out whether or not I should be using leave-in conditioner before or after application. If I use leave in before, it will be rinsed out. If I use it after, I'm worried the stretcher is preventing moisture from entering my strands. Do I need leave in at all with this product?

Great stuff right here! I got tired of my hair drying up and being at my shoulders. This product changed the game, it does exactly what it says. Recommend to other women with tight curls.

Received this in a VIP swag bag from a hair show and was pleasantly surprised at how much longer my curls were AFTER using this product WITHOUT having to use a blow dryer on my hair! Currently, am on my second bottle and WILL buy once I run out. Based on my positive experience, I recommended this to a girlfriend who is transitioning along with her daughters.

I received this in my CurlBox. This is VERY thick, thicker than I expected for a cream rinse, but it melts down on the hands and in the hair. like a thinner product. A lot of slip for a product without any dimethicone. My hair seems to dry more quickly with this, however, which can make styling a bit more difficult. My hair needed a bit more of my Eden Bodyworks Almond Marshmallow Serum. It worked better on co-wash days: my wet curl was better, and pre-plopping curl was great. MY hair felt soft and silky. Overall, it's okay. but it's an extra step I really don't need. I'm debating on whether or not to keep it or to send it to Project Beauty Share. Leaning towards the latter since I don't see myself using it very often.

Cantu Natural Curl Stretcher Cream Rinse - 10 fl oz uploaded by Alicia D.
Super easy product to incorporate on wash day. When I first received this product in my Curl Box, I was nervous that this was a texturizer of some sort. However, I quickly realized that it works by temporarily keeping strands in the elongated state you see in the shower (pre-shrinkage) and my keeping moisture out to prevent post styling shrinkage. I've seen a noticeable difference in my twistouts being longer and and lasting longer.

Seriously I had no idea what this product did. At first I thought it was a leave in so I did that and of course it flaked up Haha. So then the second time I used it, it literally made my hair feel like silk. I really love that it actually did stretch my curls, but I'm still not sure if it is a shampoo, or a deep conditioner! Whatever it is I really love it

This product helps to elongate your hair without altering your curl pattern. My hair stays elongated for a few days. This is a good product to have and use. This was my first time using a Curl Stretch cream and I was very satisfied.
