Questions & Answers for Carol's Daughter Hair Balm

Question
Is this product only for use on African American hair?
I am Caucasian with wavy, dry, chemically treated hair, and this product sounds fantastic. I'm hesitant to purchase though, because I'm afraid that it could be too heavy for my hair. Any thoughts from other users?

I have very soft, straight hair, and I use this product ALL THE TIME!! I use it for the shine factor. A little dab will do you, don't go over board or you'll look like a greasy hot mess. I'm white and LOVE LOVE LOVE all carol's daughters products. They smell great, work wonders on my hair. I was told at my local sephora that this was an "ethnic" line and not to purchase. I'm so glad I didn't listen. I love the hair and body products. I love that this all started in a woman's kitchen. That she uses honest good products. I can not express how life changing these product are. Give it a try, if you don't love it sephora will take it back

I would only use it if your wavy hair has coarse texture from the dryness, or just in general. And you would only use a little less than a pea-sized amount because a little goes a long way.

I am African American, and I let a Caucasian student where I work use some of this balm. She has gorgeous, wild curly red hair. (Think "Orphan Annie") We used just a little bit in her hair, and it went from very dry to very alive! You should try it. (Use a little on your hair when it is wet. Blow it out, or let it dry naturally.) Use a light hand; gradually add more until you get the texture you want. (I don't work for Carol's Daughter. I just like - no I LOVE - some of their products.)

This pleasantly-scented hair balm liquefies in your hands and absorbs quickly. It is very light and non-greasy and does not weigh my hair down. Hair Balm makes my hair soft, shiny and it still has movement and body. I'd recommend it for all hair types. Just use it sparingly since a little goes a long way. If you're able to visit Sephora, you can sample the product in the store to see if it is right for you.

The balm can be used by any hair type, but keep in mind that it contains several essential oils. So I would recommend that you start with a small pea sized drop at a time and layer the product in your hair very lightly. Emulsify the product in your hands and distribute on your hair starting with the ends first. Also, keep in mind that Sephora will allow you to return any product that does not meet your satisfaction.

Not heavy at all. I would suggest using a small amount at 1st maybe the size of a dime in palm of hand. Rub through hair completely from roots to the ends. It helps dry hair a lot. I have naturally curly, dry, and colored treated hair, it gives the hair a brillant shine. Good Luck!

You can use it both ways. My hair is relaxed, thick, and long (about armpit length). I've true it both ways but for me I like the results better when I use it after washing and towel drying my hair. Like others have said, if you use too much it can look greasy. I use a quarter-size amount for each side of my head.

I'm an African American, and in my opinion, if you have a coarser texture for caucasians that is very thick and lustrous, this product may work for you. If you have very fine hair, it will probably weigh your hair down, and become greasy. Either way…use sparingly! A little goes a long way. But hey, its worth a try…it smells great and gives your hair an undeniable shine. Try it once…if it doesn't work..you can always return it and get your money back! Good luck!

It depends on what type of hair you have. I have a friend that Ethiopian, so her texture is softer, which means she doesn't have to do a lot to manipulate her hair for a style. Myself, because my hair is coarse, I use after I wash and condition, on damp hair, right before I blow dry it. Because this product is so lightweight, I also use it to maintain my style and/or as a daily moisturizer.

Congratulations on your decisions to go natural! I am in the middle of the awesome journey myself (long term transition) and I have become attached to this product. This is absolutely one of my staple items for transitioning, and even after I become fully natural. A little goes a long way. What I do is use it on damp hair (after cowash), and glide it in my hair before I blow dry. Or, I simply use it as a daily moisturizer to maintain a style. It can be used in a variant of ways, you'll just have to see which way is better for you. I have a course texture, however one of my girlfriends who is completely natural, has a softer texture, and she actually uses this product (hair balm) to set her hair for a curly style. To each her own, but I definitely think you'd want to give this product a try!

Keeping your hair and scalp moisturized is of the essence. I like Carol's Daughter Hair Balm, Healthy Hair Butter (I LOVE this stuff) and Koret Amen Oil. You can mix them together, or use them separately. My hair is natural, and tends to be dry. When I use these products regularly, my hair looks better, feels better, and isn't dry. Use them while you are growing out the chemicals, and continue to use them once you are all natural.

I would say the hair balm would be a great product for the in between stages because it's a good moisturizer. Depending on the person, natural hair tends to be dryer than relaxed hair so it's real important to keep it moisturized or else it'll break off. Also, great moisturizers for the in between stages and after you're completely natural are extra virgin olive oil and coconut oil.

I have used Carol's Daughter hair care products with my hair natural as well as relaxed and the "in-between" stage. I recently relaxed my hair and began using the Hair Balm. It is very light and non-greasy. When my hair was natural, I used Hair Butter to achieve soft waves and curls. Hair Butter is thicker and heavier. No matter which state my hair is in, I use Black Vanilla or Tui shampoo, conditioner and leave-in conditioner. My hair is soft, shiny and most importantly, manageable. My husband enjoys the products as well on his naturally wavy, low-cut hair.

As you transition to natural this product will moisturize your hair and make it feel soft. For me when my relaxer is growing out my hair tends to get dry. This product made it both soft and manageable. If your hair is relaxed you won't need so much, very little. As it gets more natural you'll have to experiment with how much to use.

I've used both. The Moroccan oil is lighter and while my hair looked great immediately after applying it both before and after blow drying, it soaked in and disappeared as the day wore on, leaving my hair looking dry and frizzy. Very disappointing. When I use the Carol's Daughter Hair Balm in the exact same way, it lasts thruout the day with no need for re-application. When used on 2nd day dry hair, a little in the morning brushed thru thoroughly was all I needed for my hair to look and stay looking healthy and not at all frizzy all day long. Hope this helps.

This product eliminates frizz, however, you may want to switch up your shampoo/conditioner. You may want to try to cowash (washing your hair with conditioner) and try all natural remedies/techniques (such as honey and olive oil warmed and mixed together) to try to revive your curl. However, all that said…I absolutely love this product! I am in transition, and this is such a great moisturizer that is lightweight, smells great, and creates soft hair.

This is likely the answer to your question. Also... try hair milk, it's great, you will be able to gauge based on the thickness of your hair, I'd recommend hair milk for a lightweight smoothing for thinner hair, pomade for kinkier hair, or this hair balm for bushier hair. I use this on my daughter who's hair is kinky but spiral curls. IT's wonderful.

On my own hair, I use a small amount of the mimosa's hair honey. I have a lot of bulk to my hair, but not so kinky, very frizzy and a loose curl. It's wonderful.

My advice, try the smaller size of each until you know what works for you. All of the products are great.

If you want it to curl naturally try Carols Daughter hair milk or Lite Curl Booster.

this is a great product, but may be a bit heavy for curly hair. A little goes a long way with this stuff!

Question
Does it make gray course hair oily?
I have gray, natural hair that is straightened by a flat iron. My scalp is now more dry with the cooler weather change. How will this affect my hair?

I have coarse, natural hair (no gray), my scalp tends to be dry, and sometimes I would hate oiling it, because then my hair would look oily and weighed down. But with this product I don't have that issue. Ofcourse, it is oil so don't overdue it, a little goes a long way. Hope this helps!

I just started using this product, and I am still trying to figure out how to use it without making my hair greasy. I used it on dry hair, on freshly washed hair, and even tried to use it as a conditioner (put on the hair while in shower and wash it off). The hair gets absolutely greasy, as if I haven't washed for 3 days. I am puzzled by all the good reviews, honestly. Maybe it works better on thick hair. Mine is very fine. As far as I imagine gray hair, the consistency would be pretty much like mine, so... beware.

I don't have gray hair, but since I am growing out a relaxer, my scalp got excessing dry and itchy. I put a small amount of this product on my fringer tips, worked it into my scalp and those little hairs at the base of my scalp, and the itching stopped.

Make sure you wash your hands after use. This is a more dense product that the Tui or Koret Amen oils, and will leave your hands feeling a little oily after use, and remember a little goes a long way!

I don't have gray hair, but my hair is natural and very course. I think that this product works better for the HAIR, and not the SCALP.

PS. I just started using 100% pure avocado oil- it is AMAZING for the dry cold weather ( i live in utah now). Also, try mixing it with your any leave in conditioner or daily hairdress ( also try jojoba) it is a miracle worker for the hair!
