Karen’s Body Beautiful Review:
Scent: Lavender Vanilla
Size: 8 ounces
Conditioning Shampoo w/Jojoba Oil:
I washed with the conditioning shampoo and it reminded me of the AO HSR shampoo. It’s very moisturizing and created tremendous shrinkage. I liken the shrinkage to the thickness/feel of lamb’s wool…lol. You have to be careful not to get it in your eyes because it will sting. Remember, a little bit goes a long way.
Ingredients: Purified Water, Saponified Coconut & Safflower Oils, Vegetable Glycerin, Aloe Vera, Echinacea, Nettle, Horsetail, Panthenol, Essential and/or Fragrance Oils.
Deep Conditioner w/Panthenol:
Just as much as the shampoo gave me tremendous shrinkage, the deep conditioner loosened my hair like a DREAM! Can you say so much slip that I had to be careful not to slip and fall in the shower? I was like…no Karen didn’t!!!(smile). IMO, I used quite a bit and I only purchased the 8 oz. size…ouch!
Ingredients: Purified Water, Jojoba Oil, Vegetable Glycerin, Vegetable Wax, Aloe Vera, Echinacea, Nettle, Horsetail, Panthenol, Essential and/or Fragrance Oils.
Moisturizing Hair Milk w/Panthenol:
All I can say is WOW!!! Absolutely unbelievable!!! After towel blotting my hair and applying the hair milk, I knew I’d found an awesome, awesome, product. The hair milk actually detangled my damp/dry hair, like it was a hot knife going through butter, I kid you not! AND no frizz all day, you gotta love that :-).
Ingredients: Purified Water, Jojoba and Avocado Oils, Vegetable Wax, Vitamin E, Panthenol, Arnica and Calendula Flowers, Echinacea, Nettle and Horsetail Exctracts, Vegetable Glycerin, Wheat Germ Oil, Fragrence Oil and Natural Enzymes.
After applying the hair milk, I dried my hands (per Richeau’s instructions on her YouTube video) and rubbed the hair butter in the palms of my hands until it was melted, then applied it to my hair. I styled my hair in Curly Nikki’s infamous Twist ‘N Curl and went to bed. When I got up, my hair was SO SOFT and SILKY…and it smelled wonderful! I don’t remember my hair EVER feeling like this and I couldn’t stop touching it!!!
Ingredients: Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter, Mango Butter, Jojoba Butter, Aloe Butter, Essential and/or Fragrance Oils, Grapefruit Seed Oil & Vitamin E.
Luscious Locks Moisturizing Hair Mask:
After I henna’ed and co-washed, I used the Luscious Locks Moisturizing Hair Mask as my DT! Karen did it again, my hair was very soft aftering sitting under the dryer for 30 minutes or so. Karen suggests you use this item once a month.
Ingredients: Purified water; jojoba and coconut oils; vegetable glycerin; vegetable wax; shikakai; amla; yucca; horsetail; nettle and melissa extracts; panthenol; rosemary; essential oil; vitamin E and natural enzymes.
The above Karen’s BB products are a must try. I loved them and I’m willing to make a bet you’ll love them too (especially the Hair Milk)! The only “negative” I have is that, IMO, both the conditioner and the hair milk go waaayyy too fast. But on the bright side, Karen has a “Fanatic” 16 oz. size for an additional $8. Well chicas, that’s all I have for now. Stay sweet and may God continue to bless!!!
Her hair is beautiful! Thanks for the review.
I ordered my products on Dec. 17th and they were delivered to my mailbox on Dec. 24th.
Anonymous – my hair is thick and coarse too but I have to admit I’d applied 6 henna applications before using the KBB products. And henna really does change the texture of your hair but I think Karen’s products would have worked even if I hadn’t henna’ed, prior.
ALL of the products seem like God’s gift to curls..I want I want! lol
What type of texture is your hair to begin with? My hair is very thick and coarse and wanted to see if the hair milk and butter would work on my hair.
3-4 weeks? That’s crazy long!!
I’m dying to try her products. I’ve read that it takes 3-4 weeks to ship though. I will probably order in the future.
oh ok thanx!
IMO= in my opinion. 🙂
Have you guys tried Super Silky? I’m totally in love with it, especially in this dry weather. Karen rocks.
I love Karens products, my staples are her hair milk(I have 12 bottles) hair creme, hair butter,Luscious Locks Moisturizing Hair Mask( I will say a little goes a long way with her hair milk,hair butter). I use Karens for church and other special occassion due to the price and seems like the hair milk and butter I go through toooooo fast. Karens customer service is the Best,Fast Service,Great Communication. My mom and sisters are now hooked on Karens, try it people you will love it..
