It’s A Review: Cantu Shea Butter Twist & Lock Gel

So you guys know I have been loving the Cantu for Natural Hair Line. So I have another review from the line for you guys, the Twist and Lock Gel. The product claims to lock in moisture, control frizz, lightweight and non-flaking. What it claimed to do, IT DID!! I was super surprised. I love when a product does what it says it is going to do.


I absolutely love this product and really have no negatives. The price point is great, you get a 13oz jar for around $6 bucks and it is very accessible. The product was very moisturizing and definitely controlled the frizz. My hair was supper soft and fluffy after using it.

Here’s a pic of a twist and curl I did. My hair was super soft and my curls defined perfectly, Make Sure to Check out the Tutorial for this style Here! This product made for a PERFECT twist and curl.


I also used it when I did my mini braids during my protective style season and I did not have to moisturize for 2 ½ weeks.

The consistency is very light weight creamy but not sticky at all, like most gels tend to be. The product is almost Jell-O like. Now you all know the scent of the product in the Cantu Line is one of my favorites. It is consistent with the rest of the line. That coconut blend of smells is very light and not overbearing. This product contains, “No mineral oil, sulfates, parabens, silicone, phthalates, gluten, paraffin, propylene glycol, PABA or DEA”

My hair has been loving their products. Overall, I am very pleased with the definition and moisture this product gives. I will definitely be purchasing this again, but with a 13oz jar I can’t imagine needing a new bottle anytime soon. I am almost considering purging all my old styling products and going straight Cantu (as far as styling products go). We will see. I will keep you posted on that.


  • Very moisturizing

  • Very light weight
  • Does not flake
  • Leaves hair feeling light a fluffy
  • Not sticky like most gels
  • A little bit goes a long way
  • Inexpensive.

  • None 🙂 At least not for me

  1. Hi. I read your review and am saddened. I just used this yesterday, got a beautiful head full of twists but when I twisted out, my hair is almost white with flakes. Did I use too much?
