Yes, I have dry, curly hair. This keeps my hair moist on a daily basis. Once a week, I wet my hair, put some hair butter in and a shower cap on then wrap my head in a towel for a deep conditioning session. Totally keeps me hair nourished and healthy.

Your hair is probably more curly than mine but it has worked wonders for me. It does not leave my hair greasy or too oily. If you try it, give it a week to see best results. Start will less product than you think you need (because a little goes a long way) and increase it from there. I like to use this on wet hair but if your hair is very dry then I don't think you have to use it that way.

I also have the honey balm but it seems to work best for styling, not really a treatment for dry hair. I alternate... butter as a treatment and the balm for styling on off days.

No this is not a wash out. I apply this product after I wash my hair & leave it in. Can also be applied on dry hair, makes it shiny too. If you have thin hair might be a little heavy for it. Kind of rich with oils that's what makes the hair smooth & shiny & dry free.

This product works amazing on curly hair because that is what I have and it does wonders! It de-frizzes my hair, keeps the curls nice and bouncy and will NOT stiffen your hair. I strongly reccommend.

answer 6
If your hair is thick in texture, this would be an excellent product to moisturize, de-frizz and add shine and managability to the hair. This formula is not greasy but would add a slight amount of weight to the hair, loosening your curls slightly but still making it easier to manage.

If you'd prefer a slightly more lightweight formula with similar benefits but which would set your tight curls, try her Hair Milk instead.

Yes, Yes, Yes. This can be used on "caucasian" hair. For years I've tried products advertised by and for women with straight fine hair, as if it's the only hair type out there... then I tried shampoos & styling products (again geared towards caucasians) for 'curly' hair - never finding anything that worked. I started looking into the sections of the retail stores for non-caucasian hair products and what I was reading was exactly what I'd been looking for! I tried the Ojon line and was disappointed in most of the products, or maybe they just werent for me..Then @ Sephora I saw the Carol's daughter line & I'd heard great things. I've loved every product I've tried & they all smell fabulous!!

As far as "working on Caucasian hair" to make it healthy, maybe. But all i can say is that I have Caucasian hair, and I have tried this and it was just heavy and greasy looking on my hair. It weighed my hair down and made it look like I had residue in it. So, if u do wanna use it, i would do it when u know no one will see you. I can't really comment on if it'll work either because after seeing how it made my hair look and feel, I stopped using it. I would def. say that this is something for African American hair only.

Hi, this product is wonderful. Yes, it is heavy but you do not need to add too much. If you put a little bit onto your palm, rub your hands together and add it to your hair when your hair is either wet or damp, it will dry beautifully. If the product does not work, then Carol's daughter line has many other hair products that work really well on your hair type! I hope this helped.

my hair is permed, dyed, and always very dry.
You have a lot of products to choose from. I don't want to buy every product in your line for hair care. What do I specifically need to keep my hairy hydrated and to stop breaking. My hair stylist, uses the KeraCare products, which are really good. Having heard about your product, I wanted to give it a try for the problems I mentioned. I would also like my hair to be thicker and grow.

Hey. Carol Daughter does have some good products that can stimulate hair growth. Do you have a scalp brush? This is good to stimulate the blood flow which can help hair growth. Essential oils like coconut oil, sweet basil, sweet almond oil and the list goes on are good. I heard a combo of the hair balm and lisa elixir is great. Make sure you are taking good care of your scalp by oiling it, massaging it and putting good products on there. Weekly deep treatments, protein and hot oil treatments are a must! Good luck!

Try Nioxin Conditioner for your hair...It tingle the scalp but should help...Then YOu could switch over to Carol's Daughter products...Use sparingly if your permed...
Sleep with the hair covered and deep condition weekly...

If that does NOT work..Try: Hair Fashions East...411 Park Ave, Nyc

I don't believe this product will work well for chemically treated hair. I am relaxed and found it too heavy, which will prevent the moisture your hair desparately needs from entering your hair. I think you should find a good water based moisturizer (any leave-in conditioner), apply to hair 2x daily, followed by sealing with coconut or castor oil. I normally go to the salon every week and have deep conditions, but 3 days after my visits my hair would start to dry out and I would never apply anything to my hair, because I didn't want greasy looking hair. Doing what I described above has helped me tremendously. Just a little moisture & a little oil (the oils I noted absorb quickly) & regular trims should help.

Question
Is this good for transition hair (half natural and half relaxer)
I am transitioning from relaxers to growing out my natural hair. As a result, I have two textures in my hair, straight and kinky. When I flat iron my hair I have to be aware of what products I put in afterwards. If I use products with water in them, my hair reverts a little. I used Motions Anti-Breakage Lotion and it makes my straightened hair revert. Will this and the Hair Milk do the same?

Perfect for transistion hair. My Mom just let her perm grow out and loves this product. Kept hair from drying and breaking out. Also the new hair came in hydrated and healthy and we noticed she really never needed a perm. She is 76years old and her hair texture became soft like a new born. So we cut the perm off and she wears it completely natural. It's beautiful.

I'm glad to hear you're transitioning, I am as well. Use the hair milk(green wrapping) before you blow dry then apply hair butter before straightening your hair, but not too much it weighs down relaxed hair (unless you're hair is thick of course. Hope this helps :)

I can, and often do, highly recommend Carol's Daughter Mimosa Hair Honey! It is light and fragrant. The product warms and seemingly melts in the hands if they are rubbed together before running through hair. It adds a healthy shine to your hair and will definitely moisturize your scalp and, as an added bonus, your hands. While it is very emollient, it is not greasy. I use it for days without washing my hair and it doesn't make my hair look oily or heavy.

I wouldn't consider this good product for chemically treated hair, as it is too thick and would block moisture for penetrating the hair. I can only use it on my new growth when I'm desparately in need of a relaxer. I would reccomend finding a light water based mositurizer (any leave-in conditioner) and sealing with an oil like coconut or castor 2x a day if hair is damaged & dry.
