Carols Daughter Hair Milk– 8oz/$18

Product Description: This light, fast-absorbing lotion for the hair is made with essential oil of lemongrass to stimulate natural oil production. Vitamins C and E provide an antioxidant boost while a hint of lily of the valley fragrance perfumes hair beautifully. Hair Milk is ideal for defining natural curls and giving hair loads of shine and bounce.

Benefits:

  • Lemongrass stimulates scalp circulation and adds luster to dull hair.

My Experience: Not a fan. With most CD products, I believe that a little goes a loooong way. While I can see the moisturizing potential, I had a hard time getting past the greasy and straw like feeling I was left with. The high oil content left me with piece-y, coated, frizzy curls. To be fair, my hair is not a fan of oils in excess. For those of you whose hair craves oils, this may be something to check out! I gave my bottle to a curly friend who swears by it.

Bottom Line: Not for me, but may be your holy grail!
