This was my first time trying any product from Carol’s Daughter. I was familiar with the brand because I see their products all the time when shopping at Target, but nothing ever really drew me in and made me want to try anything out for myself. I’m pretty good about being able to read the label on a product and can tell when the packaging is just pretty and it’s actually not going to do anything for my hair, which is how I kind of felt about Carol’s Daughter until now.
I saw one of my favorite hair gurus on Instagram using the Green Supreme collection and instantly knew I had to try it. So when I finally ran out of my Mane Choice Pink Lemonade & Coconut Shampoo (which is bomb btw) I ran to Target to purchase this trio. The Green Supreme collection includes a shampoo, conditioner, and a leave-in hair tonic. The collection is targeted towards helping weak under-nourished hair by using three key ingredients. Matcha green tea, coconut water, and moringa are blended together to ” feed hair—making it less prone to breakage, so it can keep its length.” I was instantly hooked as a customer by those words because maintaining length is super important to me. Majority of the time I wear my hair in a protective style so I’m always looking for products that can help nourish my hair in and out of braids.
First off, these products smell so good. Most natural hair products always smell too sweet like a dessert so the scent of these products is so refreshing. The best way I can explain it is that the scent is clean and fresh. This shampoo lathers super well so a little goes a long way. It does leave my hair with a squeaky clean feeling but it doesn’t feel stripped. I normally don’t like my hair to feel squeaky clean, but when taking down any protective style you want to make sure you’re cleansing your scalp of all the buildup. Overall I give it a 7.5 out of 10. I love the lather of this shampoo which in the long run will help me retain more product for a longer period of time. For that reason, I would recommend this shampoo. Otherwise, it doesn’t really do anything spectacular.
This conditioner is the G.O.A.T! I first used this conditioner on my hair after taking down a sew-in that I’d had in for a month. My hair was very tangled after taking the braids down and I didn’t have the time to pre-poo. This conditioner literally melted my tangles. I think I have type 4 hair and normally it takes me at least an hour to detangle my hair. This conditioner cut that time down to thirty minutes. Amazing right? I remember just standing in the shower repeatedly combing through my hair trying to make sure I wasn’t imagining that it wasn’t tangled anymore, it was that good. I give this conditioner a 10 out of 10. Just to test out its amazingness, I had my mom try it and it did the same thing on her hair. So I would definitely recommend this conditioner. I plan to get another bottle soon because I know it won’t last me long. Fingers crossed that they’ll offer it in a bigger bottle in the near future.
The Leave-In Tonic:
This tonic is basically a leave-in conditioner in spray form. I’ve used it a few times but I don’t really like it, at least not for my hair type. It makes my hair feel sticky when it’s first applied but that sticky feeling goes away once it’s dried so I guess it’s fine. Although I don’t think it’s really nourishing my hair like it claims to do. My hair just drinks it up so I find myself having to spray it a thousand times to feel like I’m actually getting the purpose of the product. Overall, I give it a 4 out of 10. I honestly could have left this spray at the store but don’t let my opinion discourage you from trying it. Everyone’s hair is different and what didn’t work for me might work for you.
