    This review is from: Carol’s Daughter, Lisa’s Hair Elixir, 8-Ounce (Misc.)

    Since Carol’s Daughter is a line mostly targeted towards women of color with natural hair, I decided to give it a try. I was not a fan of the scent, but I figured that like most oils, the scent would disappear after a few hours. I was so wrong. The scent was too overwhelming for me. As for the oil itself, whether I used a little or a lot, it did nothing but irritate my scalp. I tried using a small amount daily to help shield my hair from the bitter winter of the Great Lakes, but it did not help. I then tried it as a hot oil treatment and it made my dry scalp worse. All in all, my hair and scalp did not like this oil. It now sits in the bathroom cabinet until I have the guts to throw the remainder of the $19 I spent in the trash. This oil as well as other products from this line do not agree with my hair. I would recommend that you get a sample or even purchase it from the beauty chain (that has a money-back guarantee) where her products are available to try it out. That way, if you dislike it, you will not lose out on your hard-earned money.

    It leaves me speechless. I ordered this product after I read about it in Seventeen Magazine. I would wash my hair let it dry then get up extra early the next morning to flat iron it and look decent for my class in the next few hours. With this product, it has greatly helped my damaged hair to repair. As soon as I got my hair permed I left it wet and added the Elixir, as it dried over night as soon as i awoke in the morning I automatically smelled a pretty scent. I unwrapped my hair and it actually fell, almost like a dramatic movie scene. I hurried to the bathroom and noticed I didn’t even need to bother pluging the flat iron. I combed through my hair and played with it in the mirrior like a child with a new toy. It was my hair and it was BEAUTIFUL! I splashed on a few spritz of the Black Vanilla Leave in Conditioner and it looked great! As if I had an extra early salon visit that morning. On top of that, the scent it gave off throughout the day didn’t effect me at all. It seem to me to be more suttle than some Pantene products I have used.

    EVEN BETTER!
    My great grandmother who is going on 83 has the thickest hair I have ever seen. It grows and breaks off very fast but since it is grey we cannot perm her hair to help her maintain it. every now and then we greese her scalp and comb through it to take care of it. This time we greesed her scalp with the Elixir and almost instantly nothing else needed to be done. I bounced and with a little of the Hair Milk from this line, her natural hair was wavy and more defined. I lover her hair the way it is now with all of her little waves running through it. Her breakaged stopped when we added some of the Elixir to the ends(as suggested by another customer). It may seem like I added alot of the products to her hair but it a little goes a long way. A few drops of the Elixer with a nickle sized amount of the Hair Milk and I finished wth a few spritz of the Leave in conditioner. Her hair looked so good I thought about going natural! I feel as if I now have an addiction to the products! I cant think of any other products that meet the standards of these. This is truly a blessing. I can’t wait to use more.

    I bought this for my hair because of the reviews and satisfaction with other Carol’s Daughter products. I could deal with the smell and even the oiliness of the product. However the condition of my hair did not improve at all, which was my purpose for buying it. My hair dresser suggested I use regular extra virgin olive oil from the grocery store and it had a better effect than the hair elixer in just one week versus a month of use. I love Carol’s daughter skin products but I doubt that I will be using any more of the hair products. From some reviews it seems that they are only suited for people with thick/corse or natural hair, whereas my hair is neither.
