Beauty Review: Carol’s Daughter Rosemary Mint Herbal Shampoo

It has been a crazy week for me so I haven’t had the time to do much updating with me packing to move to Florida so I figured I’d do a quick review on a hair product that I used recently. This is Carol’s Daughter Rosemary Mint Herbal Shampoo with Sea Moss. This is the first shampoo I have used in my hair is very long time. I am a no-pooer and don’t shampoo my hair so I was a bit hesitate with what this product would do for me. But I am a natural-lite and since the products were all natural and lacking sulfates, I figured I would give it a shot.

The smell is niiiice and was very pleasing to me since I’m a big fan of Rosemary the essential oil and the spice. When we think of shampoos, we often think of getting nice lathers but this product didn’t do so and that was okay with me since lather often=sulfates. I massaged my scalp and gave my hair a good cleanse. I let it sit on my hair a bit to find that it was actually bringing out my natural curly cues.

Those little curly cues always disappear when my hair dries. After rinsed out the shampoo I was a bit saddened at how limp my hair felt. It was hard and unmanageable. Ugh, what happened?

So I don’t know about this one, ladies. This product didn’t make me want to convert to using shampoos again. So I’m sticking with the ACV rinses and conditioners. I’ve heard that ACV rinses work well for all hair types so click here to try the recipe for yourself. It does wonders!!

Oh….and Happy Black History Month. In fact here’s a fact:

In 1871, Jefferson Long of Georgia became the first Black to make an
official speech in the House of Representatives. He opposed leniency to former Confederates.

Peace and Fists up and a fabulous weekend to all!

    I so love when hair is wet that the curls shows… aww… nice isn’t it?

    I purchased the Saturday Morning Special a few weeks ago and I’m very disappointed with the package. The website boasts that the package is for dry / damaged hair and “Parched, damaged and unruly hair doesn’t stand a chance.” Rather than helping my hair, the products have been harming my hair and scalp.

    Detangling Shampoo, NOT!!!

    Leave in Conditioner….1/2 of it went down the drain when I tried to pour it into my hand because the “spray” was insufficient.

    I do like the smell of Tui Hair Oil that supposedly performs double duty as a daily shine solution and a weekly hot oil treatment. However, in my case, it resulted in dry scalp. I called customer service to inquire about the return policy and was told All Sales are Final. I would think twice before spending the $62.45 [Sale price + Tax + SHIPPING: $9.00 UPS – GROUND (DELIVERY TIME: 3-7 BUSINESS DAYS)].

    Guess it’s back to my old products with ingredients I can’t even pronounce.

    i love carols daughter. i use that shampoo when i want to wear my hair curly. u have to use the hair smoothie/conditioner afterwards. the tui hair smoothie smells really good and if u leave it on for about 5 min it makes ur hair really soft and holds the curl after it dries. to keep the curl longer, i use WET by sebastian. hope that helps!

    I can't believe CD's Rosmemary Mint shampoo accentuates curls for you. that stuff just left my ahir stripped. A little tip that I've found is that rinsing the hair with distilled water provides better results so that's what I'll do if I ever go back to CD. I like Mineral Indulgence's No Poo Conditioning Cleanser just fine though. Accentuates and moisturizes my curls and I don't even ahve to use conditioner afterwards.
