Questions & Answers for Carol's Daughter Mimosa Hair Honey

Question
Hair type
I am reading the reviews about some of the products. Is this product for women that are bi-racial only? Or can this product be used on a black women's hair. Hair that is straight Black women's hair, no mixture of races. Kinky (nappy), thick or thin, short, permed, straightened with a straightening comb kind of hair.

answer 1
I am African American - not biracial - I have nappy hair, about shoulder length with a perm.... usually blow dry. This worked well because it is heavy enough to hold in my hair, smells great, and adds some shine. Better than the old thick pomades used for straightening, and better than those light things that don't hold. DO NOT USE A LOT!!! IT WILL BUILD UP AFTER A FEW DAYS.

Carol's daughter has 3 different lines. There is a line for you but the best thing is to go into the store and let the sales lady educate you. That's what I did. Do not go to the JC Penny's Sephora. They do not carry the products. U need a free standing Sephora.
If you R not near a Sephora's, go to Carol's Daughter's website to get more info

This product can be used on black women's hair. My daughter is 17 and has a perm and she uses it on her hair. It really helps to keep it looking nice between retouches which I really like because I do not like for her to get retouches in under 8 weeks. Also she has very dry hair which is not helped by the fact that we live in Las Vegas but this product is very moisturizing but light enough to use everyday.

I used the product in my daughter's hair which is very natural and it works wonderful on her hair. I will never purchase anything else! I also use it on my hair-which is permed.

This product can be used by anyone that has coarse, curly or "nappy", natural, permed or otherwise processed hair. It may be too greasy for our Caucasian sisters though. I have various textures in my locs and it works very well. It is not only for bi-racial ladies, the rest of us Black girls use it too. ;-)

Yes. I am not mixed with anything, and I use Carol's daughters products. The hair pomade, Hair Mimosa, shampoo, all of it. It all depends on how you want to wear your hair. If you want to be wild and free with a blow out/or some twistouts... these products are pretty good. Even if you rock braids or tracks, or even perms, it works too... but with the styling products.. use sparingly, cause they tend to be alittle heavy

I have 4b hair (if you're familiar with the classification system) and I use it on my ends while I'm braiding or twisting my hair. It smooths frizz very well, but I'm very careful not to use too much because it can get greasy. I don't use it as a primary moisturizer. I normally use a thick, shea butter-based cream for general moisture.

Yes, I would definatly recommend you use it when your hair is dry and use the hair milk to define your curls when it is wet so when it dries its full of moisture.

I use a bumble and bumble styling cream on my wet hair before I blowdry it and this product when my hair is wet before I straighten it. It really seems to soften the hair with the added heat.

I would stick to the hair milk. I believe it provides better results as it is a good moisturizer. Especially when applied to freshly washed and conditioned hair. I am African-American and sometimes I just wash my hair with the Black Vanilla shampoo by CD (I think that is the name) and put the hair milk on my hair like a leave in conditioner and I love it.
The hair honey can provide additional shine and reduce frizz if you want but I would suggest to keep using the hair milk in comparison to the hair honey.

I have a similar hair type (bi-racial) and use this alone when my hair is wet and let it air dry. My hair has improved to the point where I used to get relaxers (not very often, once every 3-4 months) which I no longer need since my texture has improved with use of this product for a little over a yr and I now wear it curly everyday because it's easy & looks way better than it used to . A little goes a long way, I use about a quarter size amt for my whole head (shoulder length hair). Hope this helps!

The Mimosa Hair Honey works well for this texture hair but use sparingly. It has lots of oil so you only need a small amount. Concentrate on the ends of the hair and make sure to use a water-based moisturizer beforehand (leavein conditioners work well for this).

My boyfriend has 2 daughters who are African-American. I use the Carol's Daughter line on their even though they're younger. My favorite for them is the loc butter (http://www.sephora.com/loc-butter-P136318), which hydrates, doesn't flake, and allows protective styles like plaits, braids, and twists to stay neat.

The mimosa hair honey may be a good way to go! It has tons of natural ingredients that are safe for a child's sensitive skin, and the smell is sweet and youthful. A little goes a long way, so a good buy for the price if you're styling her hair every day. Will add shine and lightweight moisture to her hair if applied to the ends, and good for taming fly-aways and cowlicks. I probably wouldn't apply the product to the scalp, or use it before applying heat as a protectant. Happy styling!

It's hard to tell without knowing what your daughter's hair texture is - black women have different textures - and also I don't know what you are talking about with just "hair honey," because the only product Carol's Daughter makes called hair honey is the Mimosa Hair Honey. Maybe you mean Hair Balm or Hair Milk? I've used all three and I have several family members that have used them on their daughter's hair. There's no one that is "best" for African American hair because we've all got different types; it just depends. Mimosa Hair Honey is best for thick and/or coarse hair because it's kind of heavy; it would be good for controlling frizz or shaping hair styles, and it has a long lasting shine. Hair Milk is a lightweight moisturizer that's good for defining curls; a lot of mixed young women use it, and my cousin uses it on her black/Hispanic daughter's hair to tame the kinks into curls. However, I know that a lot of black women use it too.

Personally I like the Hair Balm the best. I have relaxed hair, and I've found that it is heavy enough to do the moisturizing but light enough to not weigh my hair down. It also is not water based, so it'll work on presses.

You should try them out and see what works.

this works great for fine hair. mine is naturally wavy and frizzy and very fine. i perm now and color, so my hair was really damaged, but since using her products looks the best it has in years! i would use with a very light touch, and experiment...try on damp hair, then on dry. i havent tried it on damp hair yet, but i did not get a greasy look when dry. serums and whatnot always made me look greasy too, or i wound up looking like i coated dry frizzy hair with a gloss (not a pretty look) lol. you can use more than one of her products too, with out the build up. smells good too:) if you have fine hair a four ounce jar with last forever.

This product has not caused me to have any breakouts on my forehead but It just depends on your skin. If you are african american like me you pretty much have to put product in your hair. Its worth a shot. If you don't like it you can always take it back
