Cantu Beauty, an award-winning multicultural hair care brand, once again joins Women Empowering Nations (WEN) to host the 2023 Girls Leading Our Nation (GLOW) Global Cohort: an immersive, high impact leadership coaching experience beginning this month through July 2023 for minority women across the globe. This year’s cohort builds on the 2022 program which impacted more than 2,500 young women and culminated in a once-in-a-lifetime experience for 10 deserving winners to Accra, Ghana. The 2023 program has expanded to include a cohort of young women from seven countries — the United States, United Kingdom, South Africa, France, Germany, Ghana and Nigeria.
“In order to be truly empowered, you must first have access and Cantu Beauty is committed to supporting the next generation of female leaders by equipping them with those resources to make a difference in their personal and professional lives,” said Dametria Kinsley, Cantu Beauty’s Global Vice President of Marketing. “Through our multi-year partnership with WEN, we’re able to take our commitment to the next level at a larger scale to reach black and brown women all over the world.”
This year, WEN and Cantu Beauty have selected 50 young women ages 17-23 to participate in the GLOW Global Cohort. The virtual program will feature executives from diverse backgrounds in entrepreneurship and leadership, including Cantu’s own, Black-led team including Kinsley, who will lead workshops exploring career development, public speaking, professional branding and executive leadership. Cantu and WEN are excited to announce the 2023 cohort includes the following esteemed young women:
Cantu Beauty is dedicated to serving Black and Latina communities by inspiring the female leaders of tomorrow. Through the brand’s partnership with Gyrl Wonder, a non-profit organization giving rise to ambitious young women of color, the cohort gains access to resources, events and programming to help foster their ambitions, build self-confidence, and establish mental wellness while transitioning through their personal and professional endeavors.
Programming in 2022 will commence with the #GyrlGetHired series that will culminate in an in-person, one-day event underpinning that the key to success starts from within. The event will equip this year’s Gyrl Wonder cohort with the resources to not only look their best, but perform their best. Additionally, Gyrl Wonder and Cantu will also be coordinating a dinner to honor 2022 college graduates, host career fairs and headshot pop-ups across the country, as well as several other program under the banner of #GyrlGetHired.
Through their brand-owned initiative, Cantu Elevate, the brand elevates Black female entrepreneurs by providing education-first programming and best practices for building a successful beauty brand. In its inaugural Elevate program, Cantu partnered with 25 Black Women in Beauty, an organization that offers networking and career placement opportunities to female rising stars. The program consists of virtual workshops that discuss cornerstones of beauty marketing including social media management, public relations and executing digital campaigns to help these up-and-coming brands thrive within a competitive and ever changing beauty industry. At the conclusion of the workshops, three attendees are chosen to receive a Cantu sponsored marketing campaign.

We do not have products that change the texture of your hair. We do have an awesome curl stretcher that helps elongate your curls!
Healthy hair growth starts with well-conditioned hair, and each of our products contains shea butter to keep hair hydrated and moisturized.
At Cantu we actually promote LCO instead of LOC. Using oil after the cream helps seal the moisture into the hair shaft. If you were to put cream on after the oil, it wouldn’t get absorbed into the hair.
Our Custard is an amazing product when used correctly! When you apply this product make sure your hair is clean and apply to soaking wet hair only. It’s perfect for coils and wash and go’s.
A woman’s edges are very delicate. You want to make sure you’re not straining the hair by pulling them up in a bun or excessive braiding. We have an amazing Grow Strong Strengthening Treatment that helps promote hair growth.
We do not test our final products on animals, but we do however like to test on family and friends!
Isopropyl Alcohol (IPA) can be drying to the hair if used on its own. This is not the case with Cantu. Our Leave in Conditioning Repair Cream has always utilized a great deep conditioning ingredient, of which IPA is a component ingredient used in only tiny amounts – less the 1/25 of a teaspoon and evaporates before it reaches your hair. Please note that our award-winning formula has not changed.
Why haven’t we seen this ingredient on the back of the jars before now?
The European Union (EU) compliance requires us to list it differently than we’ve listed before! Nothing has changed. 🙂
