Questions & Answers for Carol's Daughter Marguerite's Magic™ Restorative Cream Hairdress

Question
Is this more of a repair cream as opposed to the healthy hair butter
I want either this or the healthy hair butter to lightly use in my hair daily especially after flat ironing (i kno that with creames and butters a little goes a long way) but my hair tends to suck up moisture so i always have to moisturize it which one of the two would be best?

They both work about the same. I loved them both, because my hair was always so shiny and healthy. For some reason the healthy hair butter gave me serious dandruff, so I switched the Margurite's magic. I also have color in my hair, so it tends to get dry. I would read the ingredients and decide which one would be best for you, depending on what you want to do with it

I've used the hair butter before, and had no problems. It really depends on your preference. I need my hair to become healthy again and stop breaking off, so the cream is better in my case. If your hair is already healthy and you just want to maintain, I would actually say to use them both. Butter for about a week or two, the the cream, then back to the butter, and so on.

The Marguerite is best for my hair & it seem like we had the same issue. The Healthy Hair Butter is light which may not keep moist as the Marguerite would. I sample both products & Marguerite was my perfect match.

This is a good protecting cream prior to using hot tools. It's rich and conditioning and feels like it's adding a layer between me and my flat iron. Use sparingly, though. Too much and your hair will look greasy/feel heavy.

I think that it would weigh straight hair down, unless you're going for a relaxed look with little movement. I am white and have thick curly dry hair, and my hair soaks it in, but if I use just a little too much it even weighs my hair down. Therefore I'm thinking that straight hair would go really flat from it.
Just an opinion.

Question
Solves hair breakage on coarse hair?
I'm mixed but my hair is super thick and pretty coarse and stops just at my bra-strap. I went to a salon and got a relaxer just before the spring semester started and now my hair has been breaking off like crazy. When I comb it, when I style it, even when I lightly pull the ends or run my fingers through it.
Will this product help end the breakage? If not, are there any others you know that will? I really don't want to have to cut my hair any shorter.

Getting your hair relax can be a nightmare if your seeing alot of breakage. I go four months before aother perm and have already spoken very highly about this product. You don't want to use too much because it will leave your hair greasy. I like to use it every 3 days or when I feel like my hair is dry; or to smooth away "fly-aways"

I am not sure if the perm they used was too strong for your hair- but once you perm it- moisturizer is critical. This product keeps my hair very soft and not greasy. I would recommend it. I put it on my scalp and on my hair as well. My hair is permed and can be very dry- I havent had a big problem with that using this product.

I would try the Healthy Hair Butter and the Tui Hair Smoothie conditioner. The Magic is good for everyday brushing and pulling it back in a pony tail, but to treat for health, definitely go for the Butter, Tui line, and even the Rosemary shampoo, if your hair has build up.

My mom likes the oils, but I am not a big fan.

In my experience, Healthy Hair Butter is a cream that gives instant definition to hair, but not necessarily lasting moisture. Marguerite's Magic delivers a lot of moisture so less is more which means it'll last longer too and you get your money's worth.

answer 2
The main difference is that HHB is more for completely natural hair, meaning free of any chemicals and Margurites Magic is more for Permed hair. But both can be used for any hair type. Remember to experiment because everyones hair has its own personality and spending time to get to know your hair and what it responds to or doesnt respond to is important.

I use it like replacement for gel. I put it all around my edges- front, side, and back. When I wear it out and curly, I just brush it in and it keeps the edges smooth while my curly hair is still free flowing. I use it as a protector when I wear a pony tail as well. I figure out where I want the ponytail to be and about where the rubber band will be and I smooth the hair creme around that spot so the rubber band won't put as much stress on the hair

I use it after washing my hair. Apply when still damp, wrap hair in towel, and do my makeup. When its mostly dry I let my hair loose and it air dries into well defined lovely waves (I don't get these results with this process unless I use this). When I can't air dry, I apply, also when damp, and blow dry my hair to prevent frizz. You can also use on dry hair just make sure you don't use too much, and spread well/evenly.

One that works on any type hair is Terax. It’s Italian but Sephora carries it. They have 3 types, all leave ins that DONT weigh hair down. Life drops, nourishes; Shine, with keratin and Botanica, for dry ends. I mix a little of all three and run thru hair. Now they come in spray bottles, which makes it even easier. Not cheap, but won’t break you either. Use one or mix, up to the type of hair you have. Good conditioning, no weight.

I have thick, kinky hair and I love the black vanilla conditioner from carol's daughter. I love it because I can comb through my hair after use. It smells nice and it makes my hair soft.. I am not sure if you can use it as a leave in. If you are looking for a leave-in conditioner/treatment, I would recommend infusium 23 in the white and grey bottle. You can mix it with your conditioner if you have tangled ends. This is what helped me. I have 10 inches of thick kinky hair and so far this is what works for me.
