Questions & Answers for Carol's Daughter Black Vanilla Leave-In Conditioner

Question
Can it be used as a conditioner replacement?
The shampoo I'm currently using is very moisturizing (and solid), but it tangles up my thick, curly hair like crazy. I normally use a silicone-free liquid conditioner to add an extra moisture-punch and detangle, but could this be used as a replacement? i.e. wash my hair, rinse, get out, spray with black vanilla, comb, wa-la?

I would say no...this is nicely conditioning for every day but not deep enough to properly condition one's hair after washing it, in my opinion. I use the Black Vanilla Hair Smoothie (here on Sephora's site they sell a Black Vanilla Conditioner, but Carol's Daughter doesn't sell that in her stores) and then I use this leave-in to help with detangling and blow-drying my hair. Then I use this leave-in on a daily basis to refresh my hair and give it a little weightless moisture.

We haven't found that it can replace a conditioner, but our daughter has really tight spiral curls when dry and loose curls when wet. Her hair dries out really easy, so we use heavy duty leave-in conditioners because we want to weigh it down a bit (this Black Vanilla leave-in conditioner does NOT seem to weigh her hair down at all, by the way). We just add this on top of the hair milk as a way to add a bit of shine and hold in a bit more moisture.

YES!!! Tried it on a girlfriend with exactly the same dillema & it worked like magic. Plus, you can use it throughout the day , if you get frizzy action, w/out weighing down your hair or making it greasy. It also smells vaguely of some marvelous pastry. She now uses it everyday, just like me, and I have completely different hair. I can't say enough good things about this product & I've never answered a survey question on a website before. That's a testimonial, ladies. Tee hee! Seriously...great stuff.

For me, the spray made my hair tangle more, and that was with a conditioner. I wouldn't recommend it as a replacement for a conditioner based on my experience with it, but you might look at the other Carol's Daughter products--they are affordable and good quality.

No you can't rely on this product to be a good conditioner or a detangler. I did order the black vanilla shampoo and I like it a lot. The leave in has a nice smell and that's about it. Aussie's 3 minute miracle or Nexus Humectrus should work for you. I reccomend Ojon as well. If you have any tips for naturally tight curly hair feel free to pass them my way.

Some of their product really are just for African-American hair but this is very light and can be used by anyone. Carols Daughters body products can and should be used by everyone just not the hair products. they are too hearvy and will make your hair look unwashed and greasy even if you use tiny amounts.

This product does't even work for african american hair! It has a very nic esmell to it though. If I were you I would try Ojon. I've used the restorative hair treatment. The smell isn't bad, but it's not great either, but it works. I put it in my hair at bedtime and rinse it out in the morning. Or you can just put it in you hair an hour or 2 before you shampoo.

not a lot to go on here but it sounds like you may be overprocessing your hair. if you're not doing a deep conditioner or a reconstructing treatment (or both) when you wash your hair then you should start. also if you don't have one already, invest in a satin headwrap and/or a satin pillowcase. this will help your hair retain moisture at night when you sleep, and the wrap will help maintain your style so you're not doing daily damage with heat styling.

It's not enough for your leave in to be a detangler, your shampoo and conditioner should be too. The black vanilla shampoo and conditioner are definitely good detanglers. This leave in is supposed to be good too but since my hair is really curly I don't comb it once I'm done washing. If you use detangling products every step of the way, you end up using less product over all, so you should just try the set.

I have baby fine hair & live in Atlanta, where the weather can be crazy humid, especially in summer. I use this product year-round & daily, sometimes 2 or 3 times to kill flyaways, and its the only product I've ever found that doesn't weigh down my hair. I spray all my girlfriends' hair when they come over & it has the same remarkable effect on everyone. It also smells like a dream w/out overpowering your fragrance.

It shouldn't do anything.To me it's more like a hair refresher so it stays in your hair. Its like putting on perfume it just sort of dissolves. It is however kind of sticky when you touch your hair. Other than that you should be good in high humidity. I hope I helped you.

Try going in stores to Sephora. They always have test or product samples for you to try in store. I definitely recommend checking out all reviews AND going in store to try the product out for yourself before making a purchase ... only because some things can cost alot. However, I do believe Sephora allows you to return items that do not work out for you to! So check out their return policy before just thinking that you will waste money since some things CAN be returned although you have already used it.
