To me, Cantu Argan Oil Leave-in Conditioning Repair Cream is heavily scented. I actually love the smell. If you were to rub it lightly on your skin, it would probably take a while for your skin to absorb it. But, if you apply it to your skin and rub it with a little pressure, your body heat would help the skin absorb the cream faster, just like you do with your concealer under your eyes (if you use your finger). Are we still talking about a hair product here? Yes, we are. I try to explain it to you this way because my hair reacted the same way my skin reacted to the product. When I apply the product to my hair after washing it, it sits on top of my strands. But when I use a steamer, or a plastic cap and a warm towel after applying the product, it melts into each hair strand faster. At first I was a little upset because I thought it was another Cantu product that takes forever to start working. Then I really took my time and read the directions. The product works better when the hair is still wet and when you leave it on the hair overnight.
How I use it:
I do not towel dry my hair when I use this product. After I wash my hair, I get rid of the excess water by shaking my head. Then I apply the Cantu Argan Oil Leave-In Conditioning Repair Cream to my hair, put a plastic cap on, and go back to finish my shower. The heat in the bathroom makes if possible for the product to get under the cuticle layers of the hair. After I am done with my shower, I either wrap my hair with a warm towel from the dryer for about 15 minutes, or use a different steaming method until the product melts completely. It may sound like a long process, but the result is WONDERFUL!

The bottom line:
If you use this product as directed, you shouldn't have any problem with it. When used as a leave-in conditioner, the product should be left on the hair overnight for maximum absorption. I use heat because I have a problem with leaving products on my hair overnight. The product does a great job when it comes to moisturizing the hair, adding shine, taming frizz, and providing elasticity. Because of my protein damage, my hair lost most of its elasticity for a while. Now thanks to this product, my hair is bouncing back! You can feel my excitement, right? This product was formulated to work for coarse or dry hair. So, if you suffer from any kind of hair damage, either heat, hair color, or other issues, give this product a try. You will thank me later. Or you can just go ahead and thank me now!
