Carol’s Daughter and it’s founder Lisa Price are my favorite kind of business success stories. Price began Carol’s Daughter out of her home selling her now famous body souffle’s at local flea markets and from her home. Somehow, Jada Pinkett Smith got a hold of some, loved it and mentioned it to Oprah who then introduced it to everyone. The quality of ingredients used in her products is one of the things that draws me to Carol’s Daughter products so I was really excited to try her Rosemary Mint Purifying Shampoo and Conditioner. While this duo is not 100% natural, it is very close and a great way to introduce yourself to more natural lines.
This duo was quite nice and I loved the tingling feeling the mint caused on my scalp. Since Carol’s Daughter was initially designed for women of color, I was relieved that the shampoo didn’t leave my hair stripped or dry feeling. The conditioner is a nice consistency and did a good job detangling but didn’t help much with frizziness which was disappointing. It looked fine after styling. In fact, styling was easy but I was hoping for a little more frizz control. Its not a deal breaker just a disappointment.
In the summertime, most of us have to wash our hair more often simply because it gets dirtier faster. I have an oily scalp and can go no more than three days between washings. I also switch to a clarifying shampoo to make sure I really get all of the oil, sweat and dirt out of my hair. If you use a lot of hair products on a daily basis, adding a clarifying shampoo or treatment which will really help extend your blowouts. This duo let me go that fourth day, even if it was a ponytail. Well, at least it wasn’t a greasy ponytail.
