what to use after a big chop?
I just did the big chop!!! I've cut my hair before and i know that it grows very quickly. I've ordered the hair milk 4 piece starter kit, but I can't use it right away because i do not have any length. Are there any suggestions on what carol's daughter products to use while my hair is still very very short? what can i use to keep it moisturized and healthy and "non" nappy looking after i wash it? lol

Not what I expected
I have type 4c coily kinky hair, and it's very very dry. I was looking for a new shampoo and conditioner and also a daily moisturizer that I could apply. I had high expectations for Carol's Daughter, and I was very excited to try the hair milk set. I have heard so many great things about it. This set just did not work out for me. Not one product in this set moisturized my hair. All of them left my hair dry and it felt like straw. I would love to try another Carol's Daughter product. Maybe one that is thicker and will moisturize my hair.

This is wonderful
I really love this kit. It is a great way to try the products before you invest in the larger sizes. I like the way my curls turn out. I am currently in the transition to natural hair. I like the way this smells, and the pudding helps define the curls. Great buy!

Lived up to the hype
I have been natural since 1998 and grew locs from 2002 until 2 months ago. I've been trying to get used to having a teenie weenie super curly 'fro and trying different products to keep my hair looking good and healthy. My cousin suggested Hair Milk and I finally ordered the starter set last week. I LOOOOOOVE IT!!!!!!! My hair is super soft, super curly and stays that way all day long!!!!!

So close to being exactly what I need!
I am an African American mother with an active toddler. While I've considered discontinuing relaxer on my 4a with a patch of 3c hair, I was blessed with a son. Even though his father has extremely kinky hair, our son has a head full of 3c hair and I didn't know what to do with it and it doesn't seem like it's going to get any kinkier. I always test things out on myself before using it on him and even with relaxed hair, this product is good. My major complaint is the fragrance. It's so strong and feminine that I don't want to use it on him even though it does wonderful things for his curls. A fragrance-free version would make me go out and buy the larger sizes of the product.

Milk products for the hair
I have been using Carols daughter milk products for about three years now, they were introduced to me by my daughter Racquel who also use them . I truly love them and share them to my friends , or just people on the bus or train or even on the street who wants to know what I use in my hair. I would recommend these products to any one, especially people of color.

Good
I tried the Hair Milk Set to see how my hair would respond to the co-wash process. I loved the smell of the co-wash on my hair! Not too crazy about the lite moisturizer; hair soaked it up like water and my hair felt really dry... I had to continue to put the moisturzer in my hair....Love, Love, Love the full fat moisturizer! Felt so good with my hair and the styling product that went with it styled my hair wonderfully and held my style all night at my cousin's wedding in hot & steamy, New Orleans, Louisiana!

Hi, I just used Hair Milk Starter Kit for the first time, I did not want to wait and buy the 123 Transitional Kit for $60 ( I cut my hair two weeks ago, I stopped using perm Dec. 2012) instead I brought the Starter for $24, and I like the way my hair feel, it's soft and looks great, I was worried it would have my still permed front ends hard, but it did not. I am impressed and may invest in the 123 Kit, my hair is not coming out, but I want my scalp and hair to get back healthy after perming it since I was 15 years old, over 30 years ago. I looking forward to be a Carol's Daughter regular customer!! Thank you for great products!

Colored 3 hair gives 3.5 stars
Okay so I Used the Live chat and got some Ideas on which products to try. First let me say that Dennis yes the person name was Dennis was very polite and helpful, more so than the lady at Macy's she was Ok just not as versed as he was. So going forward I decided to try the Hair Milk collection purchased today used thee co-wash, original hair milk, and the curl pudding letting it air dry as we speak, and Im kind of feeling the lemongrass smell, and I noticed the shine even while my hair is air-drying. I might get HIT UP by Wen but I been using it on my recently color treated hair and the dye was running out, I did not see that at all with this product, Sorry Wen!! LOL:), But if when I get up in the morning and my hair isn't curly, defined, but frizzy like it was when I stepped into Macy's' but nice and bouncy curly defined UNFRIZZY, I will continue to buy this for my 3b/3c hair going into my third year of being natural.

Tried it and.....WOW!
I am "newly natural" having transitioned for a year before cutting off my permed ends this past November. I tried the hair milk starter kit first before committing to the full sized set and absolutely fell in love with the co-wash and the curl pudding! I prefer the lighter leave in moisturizer. They have all become staples in my daily hair routine. Just one more reason to LOVE Carol's Daughter!!

You saved me!
Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!! I am a proud mother of two girls. I relax my very thick, coarse hair regularly at a salon and want my girls, 8 & 2, to remain natural. My oldest has very thick hair like me, but my baby girl's hair is very soft and curly. I have been told about CD products and decided it was time to try it. I purchased the Hair Milk starter kit with the Hair Pudding and fell In Love!! The girls hair is so soft and manageable that I no longer dread "hair day". My oldest is very tender-headed and hated getting her hair combed. Now she loves telling it doesn't hurt anymore and loves her two-strand twist. The baby can wear her mini, curly afro or rock cute two strand twist with ease. I am so thankful for Lisa and her products. You have gained new customers for life.

NO MORE FRIZZ!
I have done the big chop many times but always reverted back to the relaxer. It was because I couldn't find any products that wouldn't leave my hair dry and brittle. A friend of mine encouraged me to try Hair Milk products. Right after using the co-wash and moisturizer one time my hair looked and felt so soft. My curls were manageable and NO FRIZZ!!! And the pudding (an added bonus)....I can't say enough about it...I am in LOVE with it! Because of these products I will no longer ever consider a relaxer again. I am a fan and a natural hair diva for life!!!!

Disappointed in the new Hair Milk products
I absolutely loved the original Hair Milk products for curly hair (the shampoo and conditioner), and my hairstylist even commented on how healthy my hair was (I get it colored approx every 6 weeks to cover grey, so it tends to get dry from that and straightening it occasionally). I was disappointed when I went to reorder and they had changed the product to a co-cleanse and leave in conditioner. I was afraid that it would be too heavy for my fine, but thick and curly hair. I was right. My hair felt greasy and looked greasy. It never looks greasy with any other products or styling aids I have used. I don't think I'll even be able to give it a second try because it felt so heavy and weighed down the first attempt. I followed the directions exactly but I don't think this is a good product for fine curly hair. Now I have to find another "perfect" product...just when I'd thought my search was over! Please bring back the original shampoo and conditioner!!!

Great introduction
I am a firm advocate for selling sample sizes. I am happy that I was able to try the co-wash, both the regular and lite leave-ins, and the pudding for under $25. It lasted three co-washes and styles. I think that is a good size sample and allowed me to use the products for different styles since I use different amounts of product to achieve different effects. I can say that I did not experience the feeling of product build-up. My hair did not feel greasy, and it did feel soft and well nourished. There is always room for improvement and I think the line would benefit if the co-wash left my hair with better slip. Overall I would recommend the product line highly.

Not Sure if it's my hair color/ product and appllication?
I tried this product last night. I found my hair dry and somewhat frizz still. I'm not sure if it's b/c of the blonde color in my hair or was it something I didn't do. I've been natural since 2008. The hardest thing I fine is finding the right product for your own hair. When I was short it was fine but I'm trying to let it grow and it's difficult to find what fit.. I have hair that when it's wet it coil up, screw curl. So I apply product to already patterns. My problem is when it dries it shrinks. This product may help if I knew some else that I could add to take away the frizz in blonde color treated hair.

Dry, Tangled hair
I was excited when ordering this set because I was finally going to do my big chop and begin my natural journey. I am mixed (Puerto Rican and African American) with 3b hair. I assumed this product would give me soft, full, bouncy curls and was very upset when it did not. My hair felt dry, sticky, and tangled after applying the leave in. I continued on with the hair pudding because I thought it would bring my hair back to life. Unfotunately that left my hair feeling extremely stiff. Although I will not purchase this particular product from Carol's Daughter anymore, I will definately be purchasing from the company again because there are many products I do love. I was just very disappointed because I had high hopes for the curl milk. :(

First Try and Love it!!!!
I'm in the process of transitioning from relaxed to natural. My hair is naturally but is easily tangled and frizzy. I figured I try this set and I love it. I styled my hair in twists to make it waves and my waves are shiny, tangled free and great. I used the Tui leave-in conditioner to help detangle my hair. So far I'm loving all the products I've tried from Carol's Daughter.

Very Happy
I have been using these products for a week now and I am in love. The co-wash and conditioner left my hair feeling soft and highly moisturized. I used the pudding for my twist out and they came out nice. One of my best twist outs ever. Will be buying again :)

It was okay
The cowash and conditioner are okay and I will use them again. The pudding left white flakes behind. My sister and I tried it on damp hair as the instructions stated. We also tried it on dry hair. White flakes appeared both times. I have type 4 hair so I really need moisture. But others may not have that same issue.

Amazing
I recently moved from Southern California to Chicago and was having the hardest time taming my curls. My hair is dry to begin and the weather in Chicago made it even worse. This kit has done wonders for my hair. It's back to being frizz free and shiny. Plus, my curls are perfectly defined. I highly recommend this kit.

Very disappointed!
Was very excited to try the hair milk collection, but was extremely disappointed with the results! My hair was so greasy, even though I only put in a small amount. Had to rewash my hair to remove the product! Will be returning same!

TRANSITIONERS BEWARE
I am 11 months post relaxer and currently long term transitioning. I bout this product to help with my twistouts, braidouts etc but i was not all the way satisfied. the co wash conditioner worked amazingly when it cam to detangling but the other product just dried my hair out. the hair milk pudding made my relaxed end extremely stiff, i think this product best suits women who are 100% natural.

Not what I expected
I have been using your products since 2010 and has it has done my hair wonders during my transition journey. I got the set in late August and I have been very disappointed in the results in my natural hair. All the products seemed to dry out my hair and neither Hair Milk gave my hair any curl definition. I have found that the Mimosa Hair Honey does better for my twist outs instead and I will continue to buy that as well the Black Vanilla Leave In Conditioner and the Transitioning Kit.

Immediate Results
I just tried this product this morning and felt an immediate difference in my hair. I am multi-cultural and have extremely curly frizzy, dry hair. The hair milk is wonderful, my hair is softer and more manageable. It was easier for me to detangle and style. I was impressed with the first use. I am also happy I dont have to use a mousse that contains harsh ingredients. The hair milk pudding offers great hold and I now have soft bouncy curls. Thanks Carol's Daughters!

Worked like a charm BUT triggered a migraine
I am a white woman with curly, frizzy hair. I loved the co-wash, the hair milk, and the pudding. My hair looked so nice. Unfortunately, I'm very certain the products triggered a 2 day migraine. How I wish Carol's Daughter would offer fragrance free options. So my search continues for great curly hair products. I read about jessicurl products on another site and I ordered 3 trail size products because that company offers fragrance free options. Will it work as well as CD for me? Who knows, but I avoid anything that triggers migraines like the plague :(

The new Hair Milk Products
I am happy that CD has made a Cleansing conditioner for natural hair. I see several other natural hair products but really wanted to use one by Carol's Daughter. I purchased this kit a week ago and I'm satisfied. The cleansing conditioner has a lot of moisture and enhances the natural curl pattern in my hair. It is not too heavy so its a great product. I believe my hair type is 4a; kinky/coily/tight curls. It has an s-pattern that's very tight and springy when pulled. I like the original leave-in hair milk a little better than the lite version. My hair needs that extra moisture. The pudding is also a good product. Although its for styling, it has a decent amount of moisture for your hair. There is no flaking and I haven't experienced any build-up so that's an A ++ for me. Once my kit runs low, I am going to purchase the regular sized products. :-) Thanks for making great products Lisa ! :-)

disappointed
In my opinion, this product is overrated. I have type 4 curls and my hair does not feel moisturized and soft after using this product, it feels more like gunk in my hair. So, the second use I used less product and still had same results. I am glad I brought the trial package and not full size bottles.

The Right Stuff!!
I recently did the big chop! I was struggling with moisture and curl definition, not to mention style. So, I decided to try this set and it is wonderful. After doing two strand twists and going to sleep, I woke to find my hair with defined curls and shine. I did need to add a little oil but not much. My curls were NOT crunchy, but soft. I was actually able to style my hair. I will definitely be buying this again. I am going to begin using these products regularly because they actually work for me, plain and simple! Love it and I will never use anything else!!!!

Couldn't ask for a better product!
I just want to start of first by saying THANK YOU Carols Daughter! Your products really work! I have been natural for a few years now and I have never used a product that has left my hair so soft and moisturized. Even my husband loves playing in my curly hair! I have what we call the 'I got my momma on one side, daddy on the other' type of hair. The hair milk was like hydrating silk. Now, my hair texture has changed ( for the better!). My boss told me about it a while back, but I never really got the chance to try it. I am very picky when it comes to hair products, so when I used it, I was sold. Now, I'm a true believer in it. Garnier Frutis, Organic Naturals and every hair product that I possess will have to take a backseat! If anyone who is natural, or even attempting to, please use Carols Daughter! It is worth the money and investment! P.S. I have just purchased the Black Vanilla Shampoo and Leave in! Reviews will be in soon!

Truly disappointed
I wanted to treat my hair to a new product. After speaking with the sales consult at Macys i was convince the new hair milk was the right product. Tried it twice with same result, dry hair with no curl definition. I wasted $24.00.

Does What It Says
I purchased this starter set at Macy's Department store in my area! Due to my transitioning from processed hair to natural, I wanted to be sure these products would work for me! To my surprise, these products performed better than I expected! I watched one of Carol's Daughter's on-line videos and began my journey to curl heaven! I followed the directions precisely, proceeded to two-twist my hair, followed by a 30 minute heat cap drying and then untwisted my hair the following morning with curls galore! With little effort, I've received several compliments! By the way, you have at least two-3 applications in this starter set, but it only took one application to convince me to buy the full size set for future use! I love the fact that I obtained the results I've wanted for so long without heat and annoying rods or rollers! I'm not sure what the original scent wast, but this scent smells divine! Best of all, my hair is manageable, soft and not weighed down with a sticky residue! Thanks Carol...This Hair Milk line is awesome and so are you!

Fantastic!
I have never written a review for a product but I had to tell anyone who would listen just how great these products are. I've been natural for about 14 months and it's been a challenge to find the right product for my hair type which I believe is 4a. I'm definitely a product junkie and a very critical one at that. I have never tried Carol's Daughter in part due to the strong scents many of the products have but I decided to attend a launch event at Macy's for this line to get recommendations from the consultants. I LOVE this set. The products don't really have a smell (no fruity smells to irritate sensitive people like me with allergies). The cowash cleanser is moisturizing and my hair feels very clean but not stripped. I use the lite leave in which is really nice (I tried the original initially and it was a bit too heavy for me). It gives me just the right amount of moisture and shine without being greasy. Finally, I'm so thrilled with the pudding. I've had a very hard time finding a good styling product. The pudding is amazing! I have a hard time with frizz, shrinkage, and my twist outs usually only last one day. With the pudding my twist outs are silky and soft with movement, frizz free, long lasting, moisturized and elongated. I've tried the products for a wash and go also and it was great. Nice definition, no frizz and shiny. If you haven't tried these products you really should, you will be pleased. I know I am so happy I decided to give them a try.

I HEART my Curls
Just used this product for the first time today. I wanted to try the smaller size before splurging on the full-size set. I've used other products (even from CD) and have never gotten the soft and spiral natural curl I've been looking for. I got it today! The curl looks like they were achieved with straw rollers and it doesn't have that crunchy feeling I tend to get with most curl puddings and mousse. I've NEVER been able to run my fingers through my hair when it was curly without them getting caught in a lock, but I can now! I must say I liked the feeling of my wet hair after using the co-wash more than I did after using the leave-in moisturizer. The moisturizer felt like putting lotion in my hair. But the finished product is AMAZING and I'll be purchasing the full-sized products soon!

My search is over
I have been natural for a long time and after braids, sew-ins, and quick weaves I was finally ready to let the world see my hair. Mind you I have 4b type hair with a few sections that are doing their own thing :-). I had no idea what products to try so I came on over here to Carol's Daughter. I purchased the Hair Milk Starter kit and the Rosemary Mint clarification shampoo and condition. I clarified first and then used the Hair Milk pudding. My twist out came out great!!! I gave it a few days then tried the co-wash and leave in Hair Milk moisturizer. Another great twist out! I've been getting so may compliments on my hair since I using this stuff. I'm gonna stick to Carol's Daughter and these products from now on. My hair is soft to the touch and easy to manage now. I'm hooked!!!

Outstanding product
Your product worked wonders on my hair. Thank you for coming out with such a great product!!!! I have confused hair when wet curly, straight and frizzy very confuse. I purchased the Rosemary Mint Clarifying Shampoo & Conditioner from Dillards a month prior to Essence Festival and fell in love with it, it truly made my hair and daughters very soft, clean and manageable. But wait walking through the French Quarters of New Orleans and there was your STORE I quickly went in and said I want the product for curly hair, Hair Milk and it has made a true change in my hair. Thanks you so very much!!!!

Awesome for a Jheri Curl!!!
I'm a 33yr. old female that has a Jheri Curl. Yes, in 2012 a Jheri curl is still alive. I have had one for about 1 1/2 years, my hair is shoulder length and all the products for this particular style is harsh on the hair. So I decided to try the New Hair Milk kit. I washed with the co-wash and after applied the hair milk lite leave in moisturizer. I let it air dry as I fluff with fingers. My hair is AWESOME!!!!! It's soft, bouncy, and moisturized and no frizz. The new smell is light and doesn't have that strong lemongrass fragrance. My curls are beautiful, hair looks as if it is truly natural.Some might hate the fact that I'm putting some form of chemicals in my hair but I was natural for about 8 months before the curl and couldn't maintain it properly. I loved my natural curls but my hair was SO THICK!!! So I know now that if I decided to transition again( which I think I might do(I'm about 3 mo. post) I would stick with this particular Hair Milk combo. But for now, Watch out, here comes the new and improved Jheri Curl for 2012!

Disappointed
I've been natural for 2 months (big chop) and I've been on an endless search for just the right products for my coarse,thick hair. I was hopeful with the new and improved Carol's Daughter Hair Milk starter kit, but was disappointed with the results. My hair looked and felt dry and was crunchy; I was hoping for soft, moisturized curls but came up short. Since I have quite a bit of each product left, I will use them (and hope for better results), but I do not plan purchase again.

Truly Simple, perfect curls
I purchased the Hair Milk Co-wash and Original Leave-in Moisturizer yesterday. I am truly amazed at how my curls responded...they LOVE this wonderful product line. My hair is exposed to a lot of sun but at the end of my day my curls retained the moisture and looked great!!! Thanks to CD...these items are keepers for me.
