How did everyone enjoy the extra loooong weekend?!!(for those in Naija). I for sure did and I am seriously dreading tomoz :(
I put up this pic;
and I asked followers on Instagram to choose which they prefer and of the 6 comments left, only one lady preferred Carol's Daughter hair milk...after using both of them alternatively for the past two weeks my verdict is in...
And I vote in favor of SHEA MOISTURE CURL & STYLE MILK!!!!
And here is my reason...
Consistency; Sometimes lighter products doesn't necessarily equate that the product is more moisturizing...and I find that, that's the case with the Carol's daughter product, here's a picture of the two products one after the other;
On the other hand, Shea moisture Curl & Style Milk has fewer oils; five in number and of the ingredients include, shea butter, silk protein, Coconut oil which we should all know is an excellent oil that conditions as well as strengthens the hair shaft, vitamin E and honeysuckle( a humectant)...
Could it be the difference in composition that makes the results I and the rest of the ladies that weighed in lean more to Shea Moisture? It definitely seems so and that is why I always place emphasis on reading ingredient labels.
Will I be purchasing the Carol's daughter hair milk again? I am afraid not except the formula is revised, I am beginning to feel Carol's Daughter products are one of those products that work only for natural hair, all the products I have tried by them have left me feeling bleh sadly...I might give the Monoi collection just one more shot and see.
As for Shea Moisture, I can boldly say that all their products except the Yucca & Boabab Thickening line are absolutely divine and will make your hair feel all kinds of good though they are not the most pocket friendly but their Curl enhancing smoothie which I purchased along side the milk is extra moisturizing;
and will last you a good 6 months if you use it correctly (in moderation)...The Hub will have in stock in August so be sure to stock up if you are in search of a good moisturizer.
P.S Thanks to all the ladies who have sent in transitioning tales, for those interested remember the deadline is 31st July.
Have a blessed new month ahead, as usual the AUGUST IMPORT WINDOW OPENS FROM THE 1ST TO THE 7TH...Order anything hair and beauty...last month I even got an order for candles and we have delivered :)
