My Experience: Not a fan of the fragrance…for some reason, it reminds me of Noxzema. The ingredient list is pretty impressive, and if used sparingly, this product will add shine and moisture to your curls. With that said, if you use too much of it, you’re left with frizzy, greasy, lifeless hair. In fact, my hair responds to CDHHB the same way it responds to Qhemet’s Heavy Cream. I think it makes a great sealant, despite the fact that the first ingredient is water (apply to hair ends after conditioning and styling). It also appears to be heavy enough to use as a pomade to slick down edges.
Bottom Line: If you’re looking for a moisturizer, and heavier products don’t bother you, definitely check this out. The price is decent, and even if you can’t use it for an all over moisturizer, it will definitely protect your ends from the elements. Would I purchase it again? Probably not, the fragrance is strong, and I already have an excellent (and cheap) pomade and sealant–Shea.
i have very fine hair so i decided to stop getting perms around four years ago. perms were just to much for my hair. it took me awhile to find a product tht would keep my hair shiny without weighing it down. my mom suggested healty hair butter. it works great on my hair. i just use a small amount and it works wonders. but i also use the shampoo and leave in conditioner. i think to get the full effect of a product you should use the whole line. my hair also naturally curls up in the summer and the butter keeps the curls looking healthy and stops breakage.
I'm in the minority also. I have 3c type curls. I like CD products. I use the Black Vanilla shampoo and deep conditioner, along with the leave in conditioner. I use the Health hair butter and the Hair Milk. I use her hair oils too. The key is “a little goes a long way”. The Hair Milk, Hair Butter, and Shea Soufflé last me for months! The smell is great, I like the smell and my husband does also. I really don’t understand the hate for CD products. If it doesn’t work for your hair, it just doesn’t work. There's no need to trash her; it sounds personal to me. I admire what she has done for herself and I believe she has good product. I use the body soufflé and it has lightened and softens my skin. I love her products. The only thing is that each time I go to purchase them they are sold out!
Well, I'm in the minority because I absolutely LOVE this product. I use it everyday and was SO thrilled that CurlyNikki gave me a full container of it the other day! My mother has fine curly hair and says that it's too heavy for her hair, but my hair drinks it up.
And as for the smell, I'm also a big fan of woodsy scents, so I love the way the product smells. My boyfriend loves to bury his nose in my hair, too, because he really loves it, and notices when I don't use it!
I recently bought this product and have tried it several times. I am not a fan of this product. I have been wanting to try the CD line for some time and the healthy hair butter was the 1st thing I tried. While it did moisturize my hair, the smell of it is HORRIBLE! I usually wash/co-wash 2 times a week and this stuff made me wash out my hair after the first day. The smell really stays with your hair. Ugh! I will be getting rid of this product soon.
I haven't bought anything from Carol's Daughter, but everyone says the same thing about it. That they are not a fan or impressed. Everyone says her products were better when it was comoing out of her home. Guess I may not be purchasing
Ever since CD went commercial, her products are garbage!!! A friend of mine swore by her products when she just had her lil shop in Brooklyn. Now, I'ont know but I am not impressed AT ALL!!! I sent Karen's Body Beautiful an email too… telling her please do not commercialize!!! I think CD is so overrated!!!
I have this, a friend purchased it for me when I first went natural last November and it's barely used. I don't like the smell & can't figure out the right amount to use so that my hair isn't a big greaseball fro.
The key with this product is to use it sparingly. This is one of those times when a little really does go a long way. I put some on my ends and in my "problem area" when I'm just washing and going and it really keeps away the frizz.
I use this one as a pre-poo. Other than that, I only apply it to dry hair at night. Gives me soft, shiny hair. It also works well for my daughter.
They have this at some TJ Maxx for like $5. I was tempted to try it but every Carol's Duaghters product I've used I hated did nothing for my hair
I agree with you, I cannot take the smell. When I used it I was walking around and getting whiffs of the herbal scent for DAYS. Too bad cause I really liked the consistency and moisture factor.
I had two bad experiences with CD. Her products do nothing for my hair. I will get a sample of this at the mall and see how it works. Her products dry out my already kinky 41/b hair type. He rprouducts work better with looser curl patterns.
All of her products expect Lisa's hair elixir and anything Tui give me a headache. I don't know how someone can layer her stuf and their hair!
The smell is very strong. I really liked this product alot. I actually bought it at TJ Maxx for $4. I would repurchase because it helped to slick back my frizz in the front when I do ponytails.
I HATE the smell of this, I don't care how well something works if I can't bear the smell there is no way I am using it…
you are soooo right about the fragrance…I kept smelling it and smelling it, trying to figure out what it smelled like, and noxema is exactly right! just purchased a 4oz size myself to try it out on my daughters 4c hair. It does a great job of moisturizing her hair type, so i might just have to put up with the smell, unless anybody has any ideas on how to mask it.
I agree about the Shea, matter of fact, everytime I see these natural products which are just a mixture of stuff I already put in my hair I wonder if it's worth it to pay for it when I can just mix together the stuff that's already in my cabinet. It also doesn't help that I am a broke student….
Noxzema? Really? Oh noooooo
Qhemet Biologics has done me good in the past. many of their prodz are still on my wish list…
I purchased this a couple of months ago and I'm not impressed. It left my hair so greasy and the smell was nauseating.
