This was one of my staple products to use when I first went Natural almost 4 years ago. Paired with their leave in conditioner it gave my hair a great hold for twist that would last up to 2-3 weeks at a time. Cantu has a signature smell, and it still smells awesome!

I really like the way this product smells. It has a custard consistency and it a whit color. It didn’t hold my twist out as I hoped, but maybe because my hair was wet. I use it in my children hair has a conditioner.

Cantu Shea Butter Moisturizing Twist & Lock Hair Gel best product I've used so far for frizz control and curl definition. Applied to wet hair with squish scrutch method. Gave me soft definition.

Another one of my favs for doing twists outs and other natural hairstyles. It has a nice tropical scent. It also leaves my hair feeling moisturized and my twist out last longer due to great hold but not hard.

Actually one of the one that I most use because my curls are to small and this defines them really well, also it does moisturizer a lot and you don’t have to put a lot of this product because it’s really creamy and the best thing is tha it’s really cheap to buy

I like this product and I don't at the same time. I am African American with 4b hair and when I do my normal hair wash routine, I tried this product out and it was defining my hair well. It smells like pineapples and mangoes which I loved. I waited to dry my hair and I realized my hair was getting white. I thought it was going to go away like other products I used but it didn't. It made my hair sooooooo flecky and white I had to wash my hair again which got so dry. I do like that it keeps your hair moist and curly for days and it holds your curl pattern well but it's not for me. The constancy is like a pudding feeling. It's not too thick or runny and it smells really good. I like the container and the design. I have tried other products for Cantu and I loved them but this one really doesn't work for me unfortunately.

This Gel has defined my curls in a way thatMakes me so happy because they haven’t looked this good in a while. The lock gel is not heavy meaning it doesn’t weigh my curls down, smells amazing, and leaves my curls in tact but soft. i’m not a fan of crunchy curls so finding this product him and being able to use it and for it to have my curls look naturally soft and non-frizzy and intact the way how you want your curls look is so important to me and I love this product so much and I definitely recommend to anyone with 3a hair and up. You go find Cantu products at almost any store whether it be chains like Walgreens Sally’s Walmart you can also find it in local beauty supply stores

If you have natural curl and you struggle with frizz, you're going to wanna run by the drug store or the Family Dollar to grab this product! I have never found anything that maintains my curl and controls my frizz as well as Cantu! It's affordable @ only $5 and its worth every penny! You get a sizable amount for the price you pay also. Trust me, I know how many ppl review things and swear by them but believe me when I tell you...this product is a must have!! I love it! I've tried outrageously priced hair products that don't come close to working as well as Cantu!!

Best twist and lock.gel if your trying to get dread locks. It's not greasy or heavy. It locks the hair pretty fast and holds it together. My husband also used it to get the baby hairs to start locking in his dreads. This was always my go to for his dread locks because not only did it lock it faster than other products but it wasnt messy or greasy.
