Questions & Answers for Carol's Daughter Tui Moisturizing Hair Smoothie

Question
Which one should I use? Black Vanilla or Tui Hair Smoothie for thinning, wavy hair?
My hair's been falling out lately, so I would love to get more of it's strength back. However, it's not super dry. Which one would be best and not make my hair oily, but strengthen it?

Also, which one smells better!

I suggest you try the Loc Butter. May seem strange, but it is not only for "locking" the hair. It has great ingredients, it strengthens my hair. Temper the amount used until you find the right fit for your style. Good luck.

I think the Tui Hair smoothie works for hair that's damaged, and it smells really good. I personally think it's one of the better smelling products I've used so far. (I've used the hair milk shampoo and conditioner, the hair balm, and the black vanilla leave in conditioner). I also like the way the tui leave in conditioner smells too. I'm curious about the oil, but they are a little hard to find. Hope this helps.

Thinning hair doesn't go away because you apply conditioner. All that does is make the thin hair feel smoother! You have to drill down on what could be causing the thinning and work your strategy from that. If your hair is over processed, minimize the chemicals/heat you are using. If it's a medication or your diet, work with your physician and nutritionist to fix that. All the while, complement those steps with the Tui. It's rich, intense and uses some of the best oils/fats available to man. That being said, the Smoothie cannot work miracles. It will simply make whatever damage there is feel nicer for the moment. Remove the source of that thinning and use the Tui Smoothie as part of the therapy and voila - your hair will be normal to your touch again. I am dealing with the same issue currently. I know what the source was and removed it (a new stylist over processed with relaxer and color). I used the Tui Smoothie but it wasn't until I stopped all the harsh treatment did my hair respond to what the Tui offers. The ingredients in the Tui are plant fats/oils, herbs and fruit. They don't rebuild the hair shaft with proteins and structure. Tui does what is advertises - it smooths. So, be patient with yourself to figure out why it's thinning. I wish you good success. Our hair is our glory.

I have tried both and I prefer Tui for strengthening and over all manageablility. I also like the smell. The Black Vanilla smells nice and works but not as well as the Tui in my opinion. And use the Tui hair smoothie along with the shampoo and rub a lil bit of hair elixir (a few drops) throughout your hair before blowing it dry! Good Luck!

I'm not sure because our hair textures are diff, but I will say this, go into a sephora store and try it. They give samples. But once you find the one that works for you, you'll be in love. Test some on the back of your hand after you've washed them to see the way it feels and sinks into your skin.

Hair milk line is AWESOME for natural curls! I am multi-racial and I have not ever seen a better line for my hair. I even use the hair milk products when I straighten/flat-iron my hair. You may need oil if you go a few days in between shampoos, like I do. I apply the oil after I have rinsed the conditioner and prior to combing. After I have finished combing, I use the hair milk curl definer, then comb through again. This has a great smell, but it will follow you all day. For dry summer days, the Tui Leave In Conditoner spray is fabulous! I love the smell and it makes me feel like I've just left the salon each time I use it! Good Luck with your beautiful hair!

Buy the shampoo so you can use it every couple weeks. but I don't use shampoo in general. I "wash" my hair each morning by rinsing it with hot water and then conditioning and rinsing. I find this has helped me gorw my hair more with less breakadge in the past 6 months than I've been able to for 2 years of trying. I'm african american too, and I had my hair completely natural for two years to strengthen it from bad relaxers and hair care habits, and then 6 months ago I got a VERY MILD texturizer so I can almost "wash and go" with my curly hair. And even with the texturizer my hair has still grown very, very well with her products and this method.

I use the Curly Hair Milk and her Tui leave in spray conditioner for days it's too cold to have my hair soaking wet when i leave the house. I dampen my hair with the spray and some water then run the hair milk with a few drops of the Anti Breakadge hair oil thru my hair and go.

For most days I "wash" my hair in the shower and use the hair oil with the Conditioner. Mix the hair oil and the Tui Conditioner in your hands run it thru your hair and put on a shower cap. Depending on how dry your hair is figure out how much to use. I saturate mine, because dry hair breaks and I never wanna give mine the chance. Then rinse it out, but not very well. I leave in a good bit and redistribute it in my hair. You'll figure it out over a couple of days/tries how much to leave in so your hair is soft and not frizzy, but also not crunchy. And you can decide on these mornings whether or not to put hair milk in by how dry it was they day before or how much conditioner you've left in etc..

Good Luck!!!

Take liberties to mix and match....I use Khoret Amen Shampoo, another conditioner (because it is rich in oils that my hair love), Tui Hair Smoothie or Loc Butter(no I'm not locking my hair...yet!) for daily conditioning. If you are applying the Smoothie daily you don't need a "leave-in". Good luck.

Depends. I have natural wavy hair, almost curly, but fine. I put some of this in yesterday and have not rinsed it yet. When my hair dried it did feel a bit crunchy but that goes away quickly if you run your hands through it. I would use this as a leave in on a regular basis, but if you're just trying to give your hair some extra conditioning and plan to use a pony tail or hat, you won't look like you have conditioner in your hair.

I would say that this would work as a leave it, but be careful as to the amount that you use. This product is really rich, so a little goes a long way, and it is easy to end up overapplying (especially if you were trying to use this as a leave in on dry hair)

Try her new Hair Milk for curly hair. I am convinced it will work and do what it promises. i have used all the products you mention and love them equally, so have distributed them amongst friends and family who love those products. But, you said your hair is natural AND curly. Lisa (Carol's Daughter) has addressed that specific "beauty blessing." Soak your head of curls in every one of her new hair milk for curly hair products - from the shampoo to conditioner - and watch them heal your hair. Ms. Price knows her business - the health and beauty of hair! You will be pleased. If you aren't ready to make the switch, I would go with the Tui. It's the ultimate "rescue remedy" for dry hair.

If you like pungent smells, Khoret Amen is the best! My hair looked so good after using it, but I did not care for the way it smelled. Tui would be my next pick. I use it and get baby soft hair. Black Vanilla smells yummy, but Tui worked so much better.

Did you leave it in the shower? Even covered, the heat and moisture will quickly break down the ingredients. Remember they are organic matter. By that I mean, the oils, etc are from once living matter that of course, will decay. That's what your problem reads like - decay (mold, fungus, bacteria) causing decomposition. This is what I do with my Carol's Daughter shampoos and conditioner after each use - I wipe off all water and simply store the bottles in my dark linen closet. Ever since I started that, no more black/greenish growth. There are no preservatives in CD products, so, you have to make sure you prevent your heavy, oil based products from going rancid. Store in a cool, dry place.

Ive never had that happen to mine. My only suggestion is that something got into your conditioner. Maybe some cleaner or some type of shampoo that caused a chemical reaction with your conditioner. Next time you buy some, make sure that you close the lid tight and maybe keep the product out of the shower to prevent a chemical reaction with something.

Carol's Daughter for Caucasian hair?

Absolutely. The ingredients in Carol's Daughter's products are not geared towards ethnicity, they are formulated according to hair type. i.e. dry, oliy, coarse, fine, permed, relaxed, etc. CD ingredients are the same plant based derivatives you find in Aveda products and other high end hair care formulations that target Caucasian consumers. The market (all ethnicities) is demanding manufacturers move from the heavy, synthetic chemicals to more eco-friendly, natural products. Just make certain you purchase the formulation suited to your hair type. It sounds like you do deal with dryness, so Carol's Daughter more oil/fat based shampoos and conditioners will be ideal for you. And, if you catch Lisa Price (Carol's Daughter) on HSN or QVC, you will hear the testimonials of Caucasian women who successfully use the line. I think you will love the Tui Shampoo and Tui leave-in spray conditioner. Wonderful and smell great! Have fun experimenting. If it doesn't work, return the products for a full-refund. Sephora is wonderful at minimizing any discomfort you may feel during a merchandise return transaction!

Wow. You buried the lead. The source of your problem was in the last sentence. Your hair is too fragile to wash AND blow dry 3 - 5x per week! You are stripping oils and life from your hair already with the relaxer AND altering the structure of the hair strand itself. In that weakened state, you are putting direct and very dry heat on it. This after you strip any remaining oils when you wash it that frequently. I work out EVERYDAY, sometimes up to two hours and do not wash my hair everyday. If I did, I would have no hair. Continue your good habits - trims, a relaxer (at an interval of every 8 weeks or more, not less); see your stylist on a regular basis (every week if you can afford it) but do NOT wash more than once a week. And forget the blow dry! Once a month - maybe. Talk to your stylist about other ways to achieve a style you can rock, look cute and trendy in and still process so infrequently that you're giving the hair time to grow in healthy, strong and resilient. It's lost its resilience. LOSE THE BLOW DRYING! Have I said that enough? 3-5x a week? NOOOOOO! Fine hair that is relaxed, then washed and blow dried almost every day is going to stay fine (that means weak in your situation). It will grow if you leave it alone as much as possible. I know it will be painful to alter your routine but you can't do the same thing over and over and expect DIFFERENT results. Didn't Mark Twain call that Insanity? I have been where you are. No More direct heat, Ok?

Should only wash the hair, once a week. Use Lisa's Hair Elixir (a few drops), massage a few drops through out the hair just before blow drying and every other night. That should help with the breakage. I has definitely made a difference in my hair!

I feel your pain. My hair is a mess now after I received a salon hair service at the Sephora competitor - Ulta. My hair used to be thick, lush and a nuisance to brush through because it required so much work! Now, my hair is now falling out after the "Master Colorist" applied a glaze 3x w/in a 2 week period and a relaxer on the same day as the third application of color. My hair finally expired - literally. Lately, I remove clumps hair from my brush and feel bald patches. Even Carol's Daughter Tui Smoothie couldn't help this time. Now, I am moving into Aveda's Damage Remedy Intensive Restructuring Treatment and Damage Remedy Restructuring Conditioner. These will work for you.
