Carols Daughter Tui Moisturizing Leave In Conditioner


It's been forever since I've reviewed a Carol's Daughter product. I've actually tried a lot of her hair products and I had wanted to get my hands on this years ago but they were always sold out. I did use and review the Black Vanilla one. It costs around fourteen bucks which is pretty pricy.



Carol's Daughter claims:

Ok..so the scent. I'm familiar with the scent because I had the hair oil. It's a very fruity scent. Almost like juicy fruit and bubblegum scent. But not sickly. It's a nice scent.  The good thing is no matte how much you spray it never gets overpowering. 

Like I said in the other review, I believe this is more of a spray meant to refresh the hair. So say you went out and your hair smells like smoke or something. Spray this in and you have sweet smelling hair.  Only thing is the scent doesn't last all day. So you will have to respray.

It doesn't really do much in the way of detangling or moisture for me. But I have thick hair that responds to creams much better than a spray.  It may work better for fine, easily weighed down hair.

As far as curl refreshing, it doesn't do anything that good old water can do. As far as ingredients, it has some great ingredients...but also some not so great ingredients. You could probably make something cheaper without the chemicals at a much better price.

Ingredients
Water (Aqua), Glycerin, Polysorbate 80, Panthenol ( Pro-vitamin B5), Sodium Hyaluronate, Sodium PCA, Butylene Glycol, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Flower/Leaf Stem, Lonicera Caprifolium (Honeysuckle) Flower Extract, Lonicera Japonica ( Japanese Honeysuckle) Flower Extract, Salvia Officinalis (Sage) Leaf Extract, Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, Hydrolyzed Wheat Starch, Hydrolyzed Corn Starch, Potassium Sorbate, Citric Acid, Caramel, Fragrance (Parfum)

For me, I wouldn't buy again. It's too expensive for what it does (nothing!). 

Thanks for reading!
