Carol’s Daughter: My Hair’s Best Friend

I’ve been transitioning from texturized hair to natural hair for 8 months. While this is not the first time I’ve transitioned to natural hair, it is the first time I’ve really struggled with extreme dryness. My new growth initially was extremely dry and frizzy; my texturized hair was breaking and splitting more than I was comfortable with. And every product I used did not penetrate my hair well enough to deliver the moisture and nourishment my hair needed.

All that changed when I started using Carol’s Daughter Healthy Hair Butter 3 months ago. Normally I would stay clear of any product called “butter” when looking for a moisturizer for fear that it would be too heavy for my relaxed hair. But, Carol’s Daughter Healthy Hair Butter is actually a creamy hair-dress made for natural and relaxed hair that is full of nothing but healthy hair nourishment. This Healthy Hair Butter combines ingredients such as Shea Butter (a moisturizing powerhouse), Lavender and sweet orange (to rejuvenate), Cedarwood (calms itchy scalp), Lemongrass and rosemary (increase scalp circulation), and others to turn dull, dry, frizzy, and weak hair into strong, silky, vibrant, well nourished hair.

The first time I used Carol’s Daughter Healthy Hair Butter, I noticed an immediate difference. After shampooing and drying my hair, I put a nickel-sized amount of the Healthy Hair Butter into my palm, rubbed my hands together to emulsify the Hair Butter, and then smoothed it throughout my hair. I used a small amount on my scalp as well since my roots and scalp were also struggling for moisture. My hair was smoother and shinier with the first use. I also love the weight and creaminess of the Healthy Hair Butter. Carol’s Daughter Healthy Hair Butter is not heavy and absorbs well into the hair. No heavy residue, no flaking – just healthy shine.

I love using Carol’s Daughter Healthy Hair Butter. It combines healthy ingredients that deliver great results – all without the use of parabens, sulfates, or synthetic fragrances. Now I use Healthy Hair Butter twice to three times a week, depending on my hair’s level of dryness. I’ve noticed far less breakage, less frizz, and less puffiness. I now use it when my hair is wet and I want to air dry my hair. I also use it prior to blow drying and after flat ironing my hair. My hair is healthier and my itchy scalp is calmer and less flaky.

Give Carol’s Daughter a try. I’m sure she’ll become your hair’s best friend, too.

4 Steps to Keeping Your Hair Healthy

Damaged Hair CuticleDoes your hair looks like it went through a small forest fire? Follow these simple steps to retain and regain lustrous shine and body in your lifeless locks.  


Get Your Haircut

Although last on our list, receiving a good haircut or trim is especially important in maintaining the overall health of our hair.  Ideally you should be receiving a trim every 6 – 8 weeks.  A routine haircut will rid your hair of both split ends and dryness which contribute to the lackluster look of your hair.  Getting a haircut regularly will reduce dryness and frizziness and will allow your hair to radiate health

Don’t Over-Shampoo
Did you know that over shampooing your hair can strip your scalp of vital oils which it needs to stay healthy?  Simple answer; do not over-shampoo!  The solution is to shampoo your hair every other day.  This will allow the oils in your hair to penetrate the scalp and increase the health of your hair.  Of course you can rinse your hair daily but limit the shampooing.

Deep Condition

A monthly deep conditioning treatment with either your regular conditioner, deep conditioning treatment, or any oil you have at home is a great way to increase the health of your hair.  Set aside a few hours each month and lather the conditioner/oil on your hair and scalp.  Allow the conditioner/oil to sit in your hair for anywhere between 5 minutes and an hour then shampoo as normal. You will immediately notice the difference! 

Let Your Hair Rest

As we all move on to professional grade hair appliances with more power and more heat it is important for everyone to let their hair rest.  Taking a week off from the normal drying, curling, and ironing and allowing your hair to naturally dry is an important step in helping to keep your hair super shiny and healthy.
