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 – 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.
