Product Review: Carol's Daughter Black Vanilla Moisture & Shine Hair Care Collection

Beauties,

I have been using the Carol's Daughter Black Vanilla Hair Care line for a few months now and it is AMAZING! I originally purchased the sulfate free shampoo and conditioner from my local Target. I loved the smell and the results so much I decided to purchase the hair smoothie and leave-in conditioner. To finalize my collection of products I purchased the hair sheen.  The only product(s) missing from my collection of Black Vanilla Hair Care products is both the Moisture and Shine Hair Oil and Edge Control. I believe that has a lot to do with them being M.I.A. at my local Target.

I know you are probably wondering, Why did you choose this hair care line? The answer to that is simple. This product line is specifically created to take care of dry, dull, and brittle hair. My hair texture is relaxed and it's also colored with permanent 

hair color 

. The hair color has grown out to thee ends of my hair, therefore my ends are drier compared to the rest of my hair. To maintain moisture, shine, and beauty. I chose to give these products a try to take care of the dryness I have been experiencing from the hair color. I want to break down each product that I have purchased and give you the deets on each one and further explain why I have all but two products from this hair care line.

My Thoughts/Experience

I know all of that is a lot to take in, but I believe it will help those who are curious about what's in these paraben free,

silicone

free, Mineral Oil free,

Sulfate

free products and exactly what they can do for you once you start to use the products. In an instant I notice the smoothness and softness of my hair after I use these products. The smell of the products is absolutely delightful and it lasts on the hair until you wash again. Depending on the day, I combine both my hydrating conditioner and my hair smoothie together for a deep treatment with a plastic cap. I sit under the hair dryer for about 15 minutes and then rinse my hair. I tend to use the hair sheen after I've styled my hair and need to add some shine and moisture. It doesn't matter how much I condition my hair, the colored ends of my hair absorb it all, therefore the hair sheen is a bonus. It adds shine and moisture to my dull ends and gives my hair extra life. I would recommend this product to any beauty or beau who may be dealing with dry, dull, and brittle hair strands. You will feel a difference within moments of use and also with continued use. 

Why do I have all of these products? Why didn't I just stick to the shampoo and conditioner? I believe it's always best to utilize an entire product line when the line offers so many products for you to benefit from. Each product is directly formulated to solve my hair problems as a result of my hair color. In order to receive optimum results it's best to utilize the entire product line. I always suggest doing this if you want to see results. If you're a product junkie like me, you're probably the owner of a a lot of different products and you are probably mix-matching your products. This can be okay to a degree, but keep in mind that it's best to use products from the same product line.
