I recently purchased the exclusive line from Target by Carol’s Daughter named “Sacred Tiare”. Some of you may remember my informational blog post about the new line and its claims. As soon as the weekend rolled around, I was excited to try out my new shampoo and conditioner. Below are pictures of my process and my initial thoughts.

Step #1 – Deep Condition

I deep conditioned before I washed my hair. I know it sounds weird but I prefer using this method. I got the idea from the directions on the Aubrey Honeysuckle Rose Conditioner. It was so successful that I decided to use the same method for all my other conditioners. The product used in this process was Organic Root Stimulator (ORS) Olive Oil Replenisher.

Step #2 – Shampoo

I shampooed with the Carol’s Daughter Sacred Tiare Shampoo and all is well at this point. There’s plenty of lather with just a little bit of shampoo. A little goes a long way. My coils were defined and soft.

Step #3 – Rinse Out Conditioner

Next, I applied a liberal amount of the Carol’s Daughter Sacred Tiare Condtioner. I then lightly detangled and allowed to sit for about 3 minutes. When taking the picture I noticed how my curls looked so beautiful and defined. At this point, I’m anxious and ready to rinse to feel my hair.

Step #4 – Β Leave in Conditioner

Now that my hair is clean I used my Kinky Curly Knot Today Leave in Conditioner. It has been a staple in my hair stash for some time now. I applied this product all over my hair.

Step #5 – Oil and Twist Cream

After applying my Leave In, I then moved on to add oil and then my twisting cream. For my oil, I used Shea Moisture Raw Shea Elixir. For my twist cream, I used the As I am Doublebutter Cream. After having all the products applied, I noticed the feel of my hair changed. Normally with this combination my hair feels soft but it feels kind of hard at this point. Concerned? Yes!

Final Look – Next Day

So the next day my twist out was the worst ever. My hair was so frizzy and so hard it was scary. Absolutely no definition which is weird because I clearly had luck with these staple products in the past. The only difference was including the Carol’s Daughter Sacred Tiare product line. Hmph!

The good thing is that I noticed less breakage and hardly any detangled hair. So something about this product must be working.

Since this was my first time using, it is only fair that I use this product a little more to see what combination of products work well with Carol’s Daughter because I can’t have this frizzy hair. I mean, seriously, frizzy hair after using a product that’s supposed to “stop it instantly”? No, ma’am. I’ll keep you posted. I know I owe you all final thoughts on my makeup posts so I will crank them out in the next week.

**UPDATE** As of 4/2/14, I returned the shampoo and conditioner. My hair just didn’t like it. However, I did purchase the Carol’s Daughter Hair Milk Styling Pudding. I’ll keep you posted on my experience with pictures.

  1. So I've used the sacred tiare line for about 3 consecutive washes now…my conclusion is that it absolutely does minimize breakage and shedding tremendously but just like you said my hair felt dry and frizzy πŸ™ their leave in conditioner does no more than make your hair smell amazing..I really wanted to be more in love with this line but I can't honestly say that I am.

  2. THANK YOU! I was starting to wonder if it's just me. To be honest, I took it back a couple days ago. I just couldn't put my hair through it again. My hair needs moisture. With the return of the sacred tiare products, I purchased the hair milk styling cream. It's ok. Nothing spectacular, just ok. Like you, I so badly want to like these products but…so far not too impressed. Thanks for stopping by on my blog. πŸ™‚

  3. Oh great, so I was about to have a war with my hair. I thought it was the fact that my hair is bleached. I only tried the leave -in which smells fantastic but left my hair dry and crunchy. I was about to get a protein filler until I noticed that my hair started to get softer when I stopped using it. I will let my son use it and see if he has any luck with it.

  4. Yikes! You too?! This isn't a good look for Carol's Daughter. I hope they improve the formula, I'm not used to having hair that is extra crunchy. Thanks for stopping by. πŸ™‚

  5. I have had the exact same experience. I only got the leave in, but it made my hair dry, frizzy, and dull. I would return it, but it smells sooooo good. So, I now use it as a body spritz. Surprisingly, it moisturizes skin very well.

  6. Yes! It was hard to return because it smelled soooo good. I'm glad you were able to get good use out of it by using it as a body spritz!! Smart move.

  8. I know I know. I really wanted these products to work. You may have better luck just getting the Hair Milk products. I don't want to give up on Carol's Daughter but my 4C hair is picky. LOL!
