|First Impressions of TXTR. by Cantu Beauty|
When Cantu Beauty came out with a new haircare line at UTLA, I was so ready to try it. I have much love for Cantu Beauty because it works great with my hair type (3b) and my favorite to-go style: Wash & Go. Onward to my first impressions!
When choosing one of the two options of TXTR. line, I went with TREAT because I get a build up more with my shorter hair while doing a 90-day hair growth challenge.

Step 1: Detangling my hair and preparing it for washing
I usually like to detangling my hair before I get the shower so, it doesn’t take as much time. I alternate between using the Derman Brush and a Wide Tooth Comb with water to detangle. I sometimes use the brand, ‘Carol’s Daughter Combing Creme‘, but not for this wash day.
Step 2: Washing my hair with the ACV + Tea Tree Soothing Shampoo
|ACV + Tea Tree Shampoo|
I love ACV rinses for my hair to remove the build-up. The Tea Tree helps with keeping dandruff and itchiness out. The shampoo does have fragrance in it but, it smelled wonderful. When I first used it, I added to my damp hair a bit and make sure to rub it in. The product definitely has tea tree oil! Once I massaged it in, the soothing sensation was intense. Comparing this to the Giovanni Cosmetics Tea Tree Triple Threat shampoo (review is here on Instagram), I prefer this one.
Plus, the bottle is great to use for a rinse as well. It was easy to use in the shower to get to my roots. This product did not dry out my hair and made my hair feel a bit bouncy. The moisture could possibly be the Shea Butter, Aloe and Oak Kernel Extract.

Step 3: Condition with the Leave-In + Rinse Out Conditioner
I love the versatility of this product. For this time, I left it in as a Leave-In. I used the amount of two-quarters sizes of product, rubs between my fingers and combed it through my hair. The smell was amazing to use and not overwhelming. The conditioner, once air dried in my hair, made my hair feel super soft and not heavy on my curls. Perfect!

I let it air dry and done! I am in love the way my hair feels with these products. It feels clean, to the point of not stripping my hair of moisture. My hair smells really good and the smell isn’t overwhelming. I can’t wait to try this with other styles to see how this goes. I also purchased the Strength + Restore Mask, which I haven’t used yet since I am on my off week for deep conditioning. My review of the hair mask will be on Instagram (click here) instead.
