Carol's Daughter Hair Milk Review
It is so hard for me to find a leave in conditioner that I really like. I’ve tried so many and I cannot seem to find one that is absolutely perfect. I’ve liked a lot that I have tried before, but by the time I get to the end of the bottle it doesn’t work the same and I’m back at square one. I want something that I can put on my hair after the shower that is going to keep the ends of my hair moisturized, healthy, and shiny without weighing my hair down or making it look oily. So as I continue to search, I figured I would try the Carol’s Daughter Hair Milk Original Leave-In Moisturizer. I’ve never tried anything from this brand before, but have always been curious about it. They advertise a lot for curly hair, so I figured I was taking a step in the right direction.
I bought this for around $12 at Target and it comes with 8 fl oz. The packaging is nice and simple, which I really like. There’s a huge circle on the front that says it was a best of beauty award winner by Allure in 2013. That’s great and all, but I think it’s a little outdated. There have been many more leave-in conditioners come on the market since 2013, so I’m not sure how accurate that claim can be anymore. It says this is best for curls, coils, kinks, and waves. My natural hair is a mixture between curls and waves, so it sounds like this is for me.
It claims to deeply moisturize the hair, improve softness, and prevent frizz. It is free of parabens, petroleum, mineral oil, and artificial coloring. Some of it’s key ingredients are agave nectar to provide moisture, shea butter to hydrate, and soybean oil to soften and strengthen the hair. The first thing you’ll notice in the picture below is that my hair is still frizzy, so that claim is no good. It doesn’t say anything about scent on this bottle, but that is one thing I wish they would improve on. The smell reminds me a little bit of sunscreen, it’s not very pleasant. However, the scent doesn’t linger too long and I can say that I do notice my hair more moisturized and softer to the touch when I use this product.
I apply this right after I get out of the shower, like the directions suggest. But I do have to be really careful with it because this is a product that can weigh the hair down and make it look greasy real quick. I only apply it to the ends of the hair because that’s where I need the shine. It’s very obvious that my hair is not shiny or moisturized looking. So although it might feel nice, it doesn’t look that way which is what I was hoping for.
Unfortunately, I can’t say that I’m very happy with this product and probably should’ve searched harder for the small size to try first. Since I don’t have to use very much of this, it would last a while and give me my money’s worth, which I appreciate. I’m sad this didn’t work out for me and will continue to search for the best leave-in conditioner. I’ll keep you updated as I try new products, but this isn’t one that I would recommend. Let me know in the comments if you have any suggestions, I would love some help!
I almost wore this shade last week before deciding on the burgundy and gold, so that meant I just had to wear it this week. The Sinful Colors nail polish in Soul Mate is one of my all time favorites. It is the perfect soft, dusty pink shade that matches with absolutely everything and can be worn during any time of the year. Sinful Colors has amazing quality, which I’m always raving about and I cannot wait to get my hands on the new Kandee Johnson collection. Has anyone seen that?? I need those in my life!
