End of The Range Review: Carol’s Daughter Black Vanilla

I’ve recently started doing product reviews again in earnest after quite a substantial gap. The last one was last month, the one before that was December 2018. I’ll try my best to recall all the pertinent facts about the Carol’s Daughter Black Vanilla range. I’ve been trying it over the last year and a bit. I know crazy right, who can make a product last that long? Well it’s mainly the shampoo that’s stood the test of time because we’re a co-washing household and I get distracted by other products almost constantly.

I am a product junkie, I admit it. I think I’ve said it a few times on this blog, Instagram, Twitter, pretty much anywhere I get the chance to. But I have to say I was very reserved on our recent family trip to Florida.

But while I’m finding my way again, I thought I’d repost the post that keeps me going. It literally makes up about 20% of my total views at the moment!

End Of Tube Review: Cantu Care For Kids Curling Cream

Damn that tube looks like it’s seen some things. Bashed to hell, the label coming off in my hand every time I touch it. I have to admit that I’m a bit on the fence about how important curl patterns are to me and my kids. Sometimes its a thing that bothers me. Other days I’m just grateful that all of my little people stayed still long enough for me to spritz their hair. First and foremost, I’m interested in all of our hair being properly moisturised. Healthy hair will look good and that is ultimately the goal. Healthy hair.…

SNAPSHOT: What I’m Using – March 2018

Here’s a quick snapshot of what I’m currently using on my hair and skin: HAIR Leave In Water or Carol’s Daughter Black Vanilla Leave-In Conditioner Oil KTC Coconut Oil or Sunny Isle Jamaican Black Castor Oil Cream Cantu Coconut Curling Cream or Anita Grant Double Cream Moisture Balance Leave In Curl Conditioner or Revlon Realistic Black Seed Oil Strengthening Butter Cream (my hair is feeling super soft at the moment, I put it down to these creams but would say the Anita Grant is the winner although a little pricey for the size). Styler n/a Prepoo KTC Coconut Oil Shampoo…
