Carol's Daughter Mimosa Hair Honey

Yes, another Carol's Daughter product even though I had bad results with the first. I was hoping to have better luck with some of her other products.

It claims:

This herbal infused pomade improves manageability and tames fly-aways while delivering a sweet citrus scent. The blend's lack of water makes it ideal for those combating frizzies. Alkanet, an herb native to the Mediterranean, provides this hair dress with its bright, citrus hue. Nettles help soothe scalp irritation. Sage stimulates the scalp and offers antimicrobial benefits.
The texture reminds me of grease. It melts easily in between palms. I wouldn't agree with the description. It doesn't smell citrusy. Sometimes it smells like a very pleasent flower blend, other times it's pretty similar to honey. And sometimes I smell a bubblegum scent. It doesn't last in the hair very long though.

I agree with its claim that it provides shine. If you need shine this product gives lots of it. As for managing frizz. Not really in this curly head of mine. Maybe for straight hair. I have used some to slick back hair and it felt very soft and stayed back pretty well. As for moisture this provides very little. I like it better on wet or damp hair as it felt a little greasy when I used it on my dry hair.

The ingredients are alright. This particular product is all natural unlike the other Carols Daughter product I used. The main ingredient is corn oil...and there is some Beeswax in it.


Corn Oil infused with Lavender,Sage Leaf, Red Clover, Rosemary, Rose Petal Red, Blue Malva, Nettle, Beeswax, Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter, Fragrance, Alkanet Root For Color, Annato Seed

It costs me $9.50 for four ounces but you can purchase the 8 ounce for $15.50. I do think it is a bit over priced and I also think there are cheaper alternatives. I do think this would be better for pressed hair as it is water free or for relaxed hair because of the texture and the shine it provides.

Overall, it was just OK for me.
