Hair Treatments -Carol's Daughter -Almond Milk Ultra-Nourishing Hair Mask

on 1/17/2018 5:49:00 PM

This is a great every other day hairmask. I dont wash my hair daily so i cant say how this performs but it does a great job keeping my hair detangled and soft to the touch when i use this about 3 to 4 times a week. I needed something simple and nourishing but doesnt weight down my hair and this was perfect. I like the way it smells and its not overpowering. Some might think otherwise but i love almond milk and almond cookies so this is def my cup of tea. its not something that lingers which i prefer. I also love the smell of their leave in spray in almond milk. That one is a more sweeter almond smell but this whole line is great. I got this on amazon for about 13usd.

This did not moisturize my hair at all. Fortunately I was working with a sample so I am not stuck with it.

I was sent a sample of this shampoo along with the conditioner. I think maybe from Ulta and it was not something I asked for. Anyway I decided to try it this morning and was not impressed. I did like the scent and it lathered well but my hair felt wiry afterwards, even with the conditioner. Also it did weird things to my color. It made my golden copper look silvery.

Shampoo -Carol's Daughter -Almond Milk Sulfate Free Shampoo

Horrible product that I had the misfortune to spot at CVS and pick up since it was $3.24 on clearance and I had coupons. This stuff dried my hair and made it extremely unmanageable. I only used it one time, but since then my hair has been extremely dry and develops small matted tangles. I haven't had problems like this with my hair as long as I can remember. What a mistake to buy this product. Learn from my mistake and stay the heck away from it. I've tried all sorts of things to repair the damage from this shampoo and so far nothing has worked.

I got this on a whim from CVS a few weeks ago. Not because I needed it or anything, but because it was there, it was marked down 60%, and I am an impulse shopper. But hey, I really love it, so that makes everything okay. For my mid-length 2a hair I apply about 2tbls of product into freshly shampoo'd hair, let sit for an 30-60 minutes and then rinse out in the shower. When wet my hair hair great slip and detangles easily, and once it's dry it's super soft and has lots of volume (something that can be elusive w/ deep conditioners and my fine-ish hair). Add to that the lovely almond smell and I will definitely repurchase this at full price once I use up the jar I have. Speaking of which, I'm not a huge fan of jar packaging for haircare products including this one, but it's not a deal breaker either.

This shampoo smells really good, more of an herbal vanilla rather than a food-ish type vanilla. Personally I love the scent. It's a real treat to use.

It does have a thicker consistency, but I didn't find it hard to distribute throughout my hair at all. Produces thick lather and rinses cleanly.

I understand what other reviewers have said about how this makes hair feel. It is not an intensely moisturizing shampoo, so it does leave my hair feeling a bit straw-like. I have to use a conditioner of some type afterwards, definitely. However, I have fine hair that can tend to get easily weighed down and I find that using this shampoo with a moisturizing conditioner gives me the perfect amount of volume.

I have been checking out the Curly Girl method, which says to avoid shampoo with sulfates and conditioner with silicones. I found this product at Walmart for about $10. I love the convenience of the pump dispenser, even though it took quite a few tries before I could get the pump to initially pop up for use. I would buy this again.

Love this on my fine wavy hair. The smell is amazing and it leaves my hair feeling good.

I bought a small, $3 sample sized jar from Target to try this out. So far I've been loving it. Smell is lightly citrus/orange to me, but I barely use less than a dime sized amount, I scoop out more like a pea-sized amount with the back of my fingernail, so the smell doesn't linger that long. I warm it up in the palm of my hands first before finger combing it through my hair, starting at the ends first. Overall, I'm happy with the result of smoother ends and adding some shine, which is exactly what I bought this for.

i was really surprised to see the bad reviews for this. i was on the hunt for a leave-in conditioner that has NO protein, which is very hard to find. my hair is dry, wavy, thick, and very coarse. every leave-in I've tried has made my hair more dry and crunchy and the common thread seemed to be protein in the ingredients list.
this one makes my hair super soft. the scent is kind of oat-y or wheat-y but it is a non-factor for me, inoffensive.
as for price, it's a little spendy for the drugstore but i think it's worth it. i bought the travel size for under $4 just to try it. with as little as i use, it will last forever. i think the full size is $13 or $14 at cvs.
my one word of caution is to only use a tiny bit. for my mid length lions mane i use a dime sized amount - any more than that makes my hair flat. it would probably be too much for those with fine hair, but if you have hair like mine it's definitely a game changer.

NOTE: I originally left this review for the almond leave-in, oops. It's this one - the original formula.

**ORIGINAL REVIEW:**

Not sure what I think about this shampoo yet. My hair felt extremely dry and straw-like upon rinsing. I'll update my review after a few more uses to give it a fair chance, especially since it has so many good reviews.

I bought it because it is "sulfate-free". I thought it would be gentle on colored hair. Perhaps I assumed so wrongly. The first few ingredients sound similar to SLS. I presume they are just lesser-known surfactants that you would expect to be less damaging compared to the infamous SLS, but I'm not convinced. Admittedly, I'll need to do more research on the ingredients before judging. All I know is that my hair felt extremely parched and stripped upon rinsing.

The smell seems very luxe. It has a heavy, perfume-like fragrance. I can't pinpoint exactly what it smells like. It is an intense, sensual smell, but not a particularly pleasant one in my opinion. I don't really care for it. Once rinsed, however, the smell didn't really linger.


**UPDATED REVIEW:**

Well, I've been using this shampoo for three weeks and have decided to downgrade my review from two stars to one star.

I can't get past the extremely dry feeling it has upon rinsing. It makes my normally smooth hair feel mangled and dry in the shower, like a dry, clumpy bird nest. I smother it in conditioner afterwards to little avail.

My flyaways and frizzies have worsened over the last few weeks as well.

I had mentioned in my original review that the reviews here seem favorable overall, so I thought maybe it was just me. Since then, however, I've come across many reviews on the Carol's Daughter website that seem to line up more with my not-so-impressive experience. At least I'm not alone!

I have also decided I don't like the scent. There's something in it that smells faintly, yet distinctly, like an ashtray to me. It's very odd.

I really tried giving it a chance. I hate to say it, but this is my least-favorite shampoo of all time. (And I've washed my hair with Dawn dish soap before!)

I haven't tried any other Carol's Daughter products, so maybe this one is just a dud. Some people like it, so I guess to each their own. On to the next...

I am white and have very baby fine hair that gets weighed down easily. This has been the perfect balance of moisturizing, yet not so heavy my hair looks greasy. I've even used it on my 4 yo daughters baby fine hair to enhance her curls and it works beautifully. I honestly didn't know this was even considered an ethnic product because I grabbed my first bottle at TJ Maxx. I don't think I would have tried it if I had known it was for ethnic hair simply because I assumed it would be too moisturizing and heavy for my hair, but I'm really glad I tried it because it works amazingly well for me and smells delicious.

I'm white with very fine, dry, wavy hair that I keep shoulder length. My hair NEEDS oil but gets oversaturated very easily by creamy and gel-like anti-frizz products. Prior to this I was using Biosilk Silk Therapy and thought that was the best I was going to get. Putting oil in a spray bottle = genius if you ask me.

I find that I have to go very light with this stuff to get the right results. When my hair is wet and has been treated with heat protectant, I hit the ends with one spray of Black Vanilla, scrunch it together with my fingers for a minute or so, and then blow dry. This makes my hair really silky, bouncy, and healthy looking WITHOUT any limpness or greasiness. I don't care for fragrance in products, but luckily this one fades in a matter of hours. I'm very happy and will definitely be checking out more black haircare products in the future.

My hair is completely transformed into softer, lighter, and shiny locks. I love this so much, it's lightweight yet moisturizing. I've been struggling to manage my hair forever and this seems to be the solution. I love the scent so much and it really lasts without being overwhelming or greasy. I would recommend to anyone even with fine hair. I would definitely repurchase, wishing I can find it in a bigger size though. And I love the pump, makes it so easy to use in the shower.

This is missing something... it doesn't moisturize my hair at all, actually it feels dryer when I use this and completely unmanageable. I don't mind the smell although its strong so of you don't like it its going to be too much. This is the second Carols Daughter product I've tried, the other was the black vanilla conditioner, and I don't recommend either. Both left my hair in worse shape than before.
