Carol's Daughter Hair Milk (The Original), Product Review, Yirssi Guest Blogger

 I gotta tell you... this will *ALWAYS* be one of my staple products. For me, this product is ahhh-mazing. This is the one and only product I ever use for wash and goes. The product in itself is white, and when I put it on my hair it does make my hair look white at first, but the hair absorbs it quickly, leaving no visible residue behind.

It defines my curls to perfection, gives them shine, and makes them pop without making them hard or crunchy. I used it almost daily when I was in that awkward TWA stage in which I could do nothing to my hair, since it made my curls pop more than usual during that boring stage.
However, it does have certain characteristics which may be cons to people. The first one is that even though it leaves no visible residue, there's a certain greasiness to it that you can feel. It's not as bad as other products I've tried, like the Healthy Hair Butter, and for me it's not really bothersome, but I know some people may not like it.
The second con, and the one that took me a while to get over, is the smell. One of the ingredients in it is Lemon Grass, and I swear, for a while ALL I could smell was lemon grass. It was pretty annoying. Thankfully, after a while of using it I got used to the smell, and now I hardly notice it.
There's a lot of ingredients, but they are pretty healthy for your hair. Some of them are: Water, Soybean Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Cocoa Seed Butter, Shea Butter, Cetearyl Alcohol, Polysorbate 60, Beeswax, Apricot Kernel Oil, Jojoba Seed Oil, Wheat Germ Oil, and Lemongrass Oil (among other things).
And once again, as I always say, you have to learn your hair. It works for me, but depending on your hair it may only work partially for you, or not at all. My hair is high porosity, and therefore extremely dry. It also has different textures all over (from 3B to 4a). But even if your hair is different from mine, you never know, it may still work for you!
Have you ever used this product? If so, what did you think of it?
