Cantu Shea Butter Leave In Conditioning Repair Cream

Feb 27, 2012 - Cantu She products contains cocamidopropyl betaine (CAPB)--an ingredient synthesized using coconut oils. In 2004, the American Contact Dermatitis Society named CAPB the "Allergen of the Year." The other ingredients found in Cantu Shampoo include: water, ammonium lauryl sulfate, ammonium laureth sulfate, lauramide dea, lauryl glucoside, sodium laureth sulfate, laureth-10, cocamide mea, glycol distearate, C14-16 alpha olefin sulfonate, acrylates copolymer, dimethicone, Peg-6 caprylic/capric glycerides, Peg-150 pentaerythrityl tetrastearate, disodium EDTA, Dmdm hydantoin and triethanolamine. Many of these are chemicals and soaps that may cause allergies or potential irritation to the scalp. Yellow 5, Yellow 6 and fragrance are also on the ingredients list. People who are allergic to these yellow dyes or who are sensitive to fragrances should exercise caution. I use only 100% naturally derived ingredients on my hair and scalp. I co-wash once a week unless I am wearing my hair out. The reason so many of these products have to be used everyday, is because the ingredients in them cause drying so you have to reapply to moisturize. They are Oxymorons if you ask me..
