Okay, girls! Spring Break is right around the corner, which means vacations have been booked, outfits have been purchased, and hair appointments are all coordinated. Some are all about leaving the hair alone, with lace wigs, crochets, braids, and other protective styles, while some prefer to rock their natural curls, daily maintenance and all. If you’re the latter group, you already know that Cantu’s ready to tag along on your vacay with the perfect travel size hair essentials. Whether you’re bathing in the sun, splashing along with the beach waves, or taking a dip in the pool, Cantu’s got the products that’ll take your curls from 0 to 100 day after day.
Shampoo & Conditioner - If you stop by your local Target or beauty supply store, you'll find Cantu's Cleansing Shampoo and Hydrating Conditioner. After drenching your curls in sun, chlorine, and salt water, these two are sure to revive your mane. Whenever I travel, I make sure to have these on-hand, no matter what.
Leave- In Repair Cream- I know, the idea of repairing your curls during vacay sounds anything but glamorous. But Cantu makes it so easy. When you hop in the shower, apply the Leave-In Repair Cream, shape your curls, and go. It’s perfect for a wash-and-go, or rinse it out if you prefer another styling product, like the Curl Activator Gel or Coconut Curling Cream.
Curl Activator Cream- Now that I have a TWA, the Curl Activator Cream is my go-to. It literally leaves my curls poppin’ for days. Apply this product to soaking wet hair, diffuse or air dry, and I promise (really, I do), you’ll receive compliments all day long. It leaves my curls POPPIN' for days.
Coconut Curling Cream- If you’re anything like me, you love a good twist-out. Before a night on the town, I blow my hair out (this is optional; a wet twist-out is perfectly fine, too), coat my sections in the Coconut Curling Cream, and wait a few hours for my hair to dry. If you’re pressed for time, feel free to diffuse. Your hair will be left super defined and smelling like a real tropical vacation.
Edge Stay Gel- If you do decide to go with the protective style, your edges must be LAID, honey! And not just that first day lay, but all week long. This is where the Edge Stay Gel comes in. Whether I’ve got my braids or my wash-and-go, I always lay my edges down for a clean, fresh look. The Edge Stay Gel is long-lasting, flake-free (that white residue is the WORST, which is why I’m so glad I found an edge gel that works), and it’s filled with Castor Oil, so your hair stays moisturized. ISSA Win, y’all.
Spring Break Poppin' Curls!
Of course, ladies, never (ever!) forget to seal the moisture in with an oil of your choice. Keep the Cantu magic going with the Anti-Frizz oil, which helps control frizz from the annoying humidity. Again, all of these products come in travel-size, so you’ll never have to worry about DIY airplane friendly bottles. Thanks, Cantu!
*All mini's can be found at your local Target, Walgreens, or local Beauty Supply Store.
