Carol’s Daughter’s products have always interested me — even before I decided to go natural. So when the Relaxed Chick wanted me to swap some products back in November.
I received the Hair Milk and Lisa’s Hair Elixir. I decided to use them while I wore my kinky twists. Let’s start with the Hair Milk. Check the ingredients:
Water, Soy Bean Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Vegetable Emulsifying Wax, Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter, Apricot Kernel Oil, Beeswax, Essential Oil Or Lemongrass, Fragrance, Jojoba Oil, Wheat Germ Oil, Vitamin C, Xanthan Gum, Sodium Bicarbonate, Phenoxyethanol, Tetradibutyl Pentaerithrityl, Hydroxyhydrocinnamate. Paraben-Free.
The Hair Milk is creamy and light — it’s nowhere near thick… but it’s moisturizing. Really moisturizing! Truth be told, I didn’t want to like it. I thought that Carol’s Daughter’s products would just be overpriced and mediocre and an absolute waste of money.
But I was wrong — especially about the Hair Milk. It smells wonderful, like lemongrass. After I took the twists out, I continued moisturizing with Hair Milk and my hair remained moist, soft and manageable. Even when my hair styles or my scalp acted up, my hair was happy.
Soy Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Corn Oil, Essential Oils Of Peppermint, Sage, And Rosemary And African Gold Fragrances. Contains No Mineral Oil.
I used the Elixir to seal my ends. I didn’t use it as a hot oil treatment as yet. First off, a little goes a long way. The oil is very runny, so it gets everywhere – on my shelf, on my sink, all over my head tie, on my pillow case (Hubby was not impressed by that). But, I guess that is one the dangers of sealing your hair with oils. Now, Lisa’s Elixir worked well as a sealer, but for $19 I would say it’s a bit too pricey to only use it like that. I would even venture to say that I could mix up this concoction for much less than 19 bucks (one litre of Mazola corn oil would probably cost me $4), but I’m not knocking it. I’ll probably use it until it’s done, but I most likely won’t purchase it.
So, where can you get Carol’s Daughter products? Of course, Carol’s Daughter website, Amazon and Sephora (Canadians, some products are not available to be sent into the country — so, you won’t have access to all CD products). Have any of you tried it out? Let me know!
