You guys voted to hear more about my recent Carol’s Daughter shopping spree, and I can’t wait to tell you more about these amazing products!
As some of you might remember, I recently got my first #curlycut. After this experience, and my new healthier do, I felt the need to stock up on some good quality curly hair products.
When I was younger, Carol’s Daughter was what my mom used and was the first #curlyfriendly line I used for my natural hair. Over the years I’ve tried many different brands, and I’m excited to be getting “back to my roots” so to speak with Carol’s Daughter!
Here are the products I most recently purchased and how they fit in my hair routine! Everyone’s hair is different, this is just how they work for my specific texture, pattern and thickness.
I’d love to hear your experience with Carol’s Daughter if you have tried their products before.
Marula Oil: This oil is perfect for separating my curls. After diffusing or finger coiling and air drying I put a little bit of this oil on my finger tips and separate my curls for volume and definition. It’s very light and good for moisturizing.
Hair Milk Styling Pudding: I’ve tried so many products for my twists, Bantu knots, and flexi rods. Some products have been too gel-like and left a residue while some others were too creamy and didn’t have enough hold. This product is a good middle ground for me, however, if your Hair does need more hold I wouldn’t recommend it. Please see my blog on flexi rods for some better holding products!
Rhassoul Clay Softening Hair Mask: This was a last minute “add to basket” and boy am I glad I dropped it in there! This hair mask is so moisturizing. My hair feels so soft and has extra bounce after using it. I recommend leaving it on for a while, steaming it, whatever hair mask routine works best for you so you get the most out of every application.
Black Vanilla Edge Control Smoother: This one wasn’t anything to call home about for me. Maybe it’s because I already have an edge control I’m happy with. It smells good and has a good consistency. If you don’t have one you are loyal to already this is worth a try!
Black Vanilla Leave-In Conditioner: I’ve been using this since middle school. On beach days I spritz this in my hair and go. It’s a good leave in, its very light, I also use heavier leave-ins from other brands but it’s a good curl refresher or good for when my curls are feeling dry.
Mimosa Honey Clarifying Scalp Treatment: Yassssss!!! Bye bye winter scalp. This stuff is amazing and you don’t even have to rinse it out. If your scalp has been feeling extra dry lately I recommend this.
