Faves from Carol's Daughter

I began using Carol's Daughter products about 5-6months ago, and am in love! My curiosity first peaked when Carol's Daughter product suggestions and reviews kept popping up in my favorite magazine (Allure, Cosmopolitan, Glamour). Celebrities such as Cassie, Kim Kardashian & Jayda Pinkett-Smith are all avid Carol's Daughter users... And I figured, if it is good enough for them, it is good enough for me!

Among all the CD products I have tried, these three are my favorite:
1. Macadamia Heat Setting Foam $18
2. Macadamia Finishing Shine Mist $18
3. Monoi Repairing Hair Mask $29

All these hair products smell delicious, especially the Macadamia line. The Macadamia Heat Setting Foam is a great heat protectant and texturizer. It really makes my hair appear/feel thicker! The finishing shine mist can also be used as a heat protectant, and adds a nice glossy sheen to hair to look healthy. I caution you, a little goes a long way! The best way to apply the shine mist is to spritz on hands and rubs throughout hair, or you can end up looking oily.

The Monoi Repairing Hair Mask is amazing. I first bought this after reading an interview with Kim Kardashian; she swore by this hair mask and it does not disappoint! I use it once, every other week, and leave it in my damp hair for up to 20min at a time. The directions suggest 5-7min, but I believe the mask really penetrates and helps heal hair the longer you let it "marinate."

How cute is my new cherry blossom straightener! Although this straightener is by Le Angelique, not Carol's Daughter, I had to include it in this post! Before I bought this, I had used a straightener by HerStyler for about 5 years... Until it finally broke. I've seen LA straighteners in the mall and online, but they usually retail for $100+. This is exact model is sold for $129.99 at I bought mine at TJ Maxx for $29.99! Holla fo' one-hunnid dolla!
