My natural hair lately…
Twist out using Burnt Sugar Pomade. I forgot how good Oyin Handmade products smell!!
my natural hair lately….
It has definitely grown out, but I’m still really loving shorter hair right now. Tempted to keep it short for a while…
Did you see the new Carol’s Daughter line at Target? If you’re from a small town like me, finding these types of products on the shelves is pretty rare. I was excited (more like surprised) to see these here, so I obviously grabbed them up. (The product junkie in me is alive and thriving.)
There are two separate lines now available at Target (unless you’re one of the lucky towns that have everything within reach): The Hair Milk and Black Vanilla line. My target did not have everything available from the new line, so I’ll just comment on these three items.
How I used it: I deep conditioned my hair using the Pure Hair Oil and Hair Smoothie. Carol’s Daughter has a video on it here, but it’s pretty basic. I left it on my hair for a bit, then washed it out with the conditioner. I then left the conditioner on my hair while in the shower, then detangled, clipped hair into sections and then began washing out the product section by section.
(Disclaimer, my twist out was done using Knot on My watch from Aunt Jackie as my leave in and styled with Camille Rose Almond Jai Twisting Butter.)
Overall, I liked these products. These particular products were used mainly for my co-wash, with the exception of the pure hair oil that I used to seal the deal on my twists.
Pros? Detangling was a breeze! I was most excited about not having to use so much product to get the job done. I noticed my hair felt noticeably softer and looked shinier even after using the my usual products. If you read my earlier posts about the Camille Rose product line, I made a comment that the product, although great for definition, left my hair looking dull. I’m in day two of my twist out and my hair is super shiny and soft right now. I am going to say it was definitely from the Carol’s Daughter line.
Cons? $14 for the hair smoothie was a little high for me, especially since the packaging seems a little smaller than I’d like it to be. However, if the product works, I’ll buy it regardless of cost.
So far, I’m impressed. I’m going to continue to incorporate it in my regimen and make a final decision once I use it all.
What do YOU think?!
I know people either love or hate Carol’s Daughter, so I’d love to hear from you. What are your thoughts on the Carol’s Daughter line?
A little late…but March 19th marked my three year natural anniversary!
I loved my fro today!
Week in hair.
Month 3 of my grow out. Slowly but surely, the fro is growing! This time around (3rd time chopping it all off) I’m focusing on the health, rather than the length of my hair. My hair was thinning in areas and I just was unhappy with the way it looked overall. I’m happy to see progress.
