I just love the concept of Carol’s Daughter. The founder, Lisa Price, truly impresses the heck out of me. She is living the dream to which so many of us aspire. Her products are innovative, attractively packaged, and they smell great.
Everyone who knows me will tell you that I am a product FANATIC. I love love love to try new products. Lotions, potions and polishes are my passion. I’ll try any new product at least once. I’m just a sucka for love! So when I saw Carol’s Daughter lovely packaging it just called my name. The first time I tried Carols’s Daughter was maybe five or six years ago. I was watching either HSN or QVC (the best cable channels on the planet by the way) and saw this pretty black lady selling her wares to the masses. She had my undivided attention and so I went ahead and ordered some hair products from the Black Vanilla line. I gave it my best shot but in the end it was obvious the products weren’t quite right for my hair. Later, I purchased another Carol’s Daughter hair product from Sephora and again had the same result. I feared maybe Carol’s Daughter just wasn’t the right product line for my hair.
What is my hair type, you ask. (I knew that question was on the tip of your tongue.) My hair is so hard to describe, it’s wavy in some areas, kinky in other areas, thin on the top, thick in “the kitchen” and fine all over. Plus, I have it lightly texturized about twice a year. Basically…my hair is all over the place. But I’m at peace with it.
It made me sad that I couldn’t join the Carol’s Daughter hair revolution. When I would see Lisa Price on HSN making her pitch, I would turn the channel with my eyes lowered in shame. (Extreme hyperbole…)
BUT…..now, thanks to a persistent young lady at Macy’s, I have found a Carol’s Daughter product that I truly LOVE! This CD Consultant introduced me to Mimosa Hair Honey. OMG, I’m hooked! The smell is awesome. Smell is a very important aspect of the product vetting process for me. I can’t stand foul-smelling products.
What I like best about this product is the shine it gives my hair. It’s not greasy. In fact it’s rather light. Plus, it adds softness. I use a nickel-sized amount and “warm up” the hair honey in my palms. Then, I apply it throughout my above-the-chin length hair concentrating on the ends. I really love it and look forward to using it daily.
Next step is trying the Hair Milk this weekend. I’m hoping it will encourage my curl pattern and not dull my hair. We’ll see. I will certainly let you know what happens!
