Conditioner -Carol's Daughter -Black Vanilla Leave-In Conditioner

on 11/10/2017 2:03:00 PM


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

Styling Products -Carol's Daughter -Mimosa Hair Honey


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.

Hair Treatments -Carol's Daughter -Hair Milk Original Leave-in Moisturizer

on 9/25/2017 6:25:00 AM


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.

Shampoo -Carol's Daughter -Sacred Tiare Anti-Breakage and Anti-Frizz Sulfate-Free Shampoo - 12 oz

on 8/28/2017 5:09:00 PM



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.


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...

Styling Products -Carol's Daughter -Black Vanilla hair sheen

on 8/23/2017 1:00:00 PM


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.
