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.

You have to stop her from using the heat. It is horrible for her hair. Find styles that she loves using her curly hair. Search YouTube and be creative. Also, be careful on the type of products you use. Don't use products with alcohol. Try carol daughters line and natural products like pure shea butter.

sounds like she is suffering from heat damage. probably should lay off of the flat iron for a few months. every week she should use deep conditioners with olive oil or a type of oil base. cutting back on how often she shampoos during the week would help also. heat protection is key in the future- i use chi silk & a oil from sojurn when i flat iron. but i def take breaks from flat ironing & wear my curls.

During the summer try not to have her hair straightened as much, and if she does wait for at least 3 days before she washes and straightens it because its not healthy to use that much heat consecutively. Then use conditioners containing Keratin, and deep condition every week.

answer 5
First of all, a 10 year old should not be using a flat iron all the time because she will eventually lose her hair slowly and it will not have the natural moisture that it once had. At this point, put that flat iron down and either use, Carol's daughter healthy hair butter and apply to her hair when it is either damp or wet and let it dry naturally.....make sure you get the ends of her hair good with that because it will lock in that moisture....if that prouct is too heavy then try the Mimosa hair product which is orange and apply to her hair when damp or wet and let dry naturally....and once or twice a week apply the Hair Elixir that will open your daughter's roots up on her scalp, moisture it and eventually help with hair growth....

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.

Healty Hair Butter with its shea butter and essential oils you can't go wrong. Instant gratification after first use. Add the Tui Shampoo and Tui Condioner...for the Tripple Threat effect! Hair becomes healthy and manageble and very hydrated. Watch out if you've got some cool haircut b/c this will make the hair grow fast!

I would recommend Carol's Daughter hair balm. The main ingredient in lotion is water, so that will cause your hair to curl back up or revert. I love the hair balm. You only need a small amount, but about a quarter size... rub in your hands and on your fingers and finger it through your hair. It keeps it shiny and helps to keep down frizz. If you wrap your hair, the balm will work its way through all your hair from being wrapped and it will be gorgeous the next day

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.

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.

Use a little bit at night before bed and put a scarf or wrap on your hair. Put a little more on in the mornings before heat styling. It immediately makes your hair look fuller, very soft and healthy.

My hair is very fine and was damaged very badly when I decided to add highlights. This has definitely made a difference in repairing the damage and making my hair look and feel fuller while growing it back out. I am sure it helps repair the damage as well and prevents new damage from curling irons.

My hair is also dry as well as fine and this does not weigh it down when used everyday.
