Rating: Not bad, Not good (6/10)

Product Name: Carol's Daughter Healthy Hair Butter
Price Range: $10.50 (4 oz)
Company: Carol's Daughter Product, LLC (
Catch Phrase: With the power of seven essential oils, this creamy hair dress conditions your hair and scalp, helping to minimize breakage. Essential oils of sweet orange, lemongrass, patchouli, ylang-ylang, lavender, cedarwood, shea butter and rosemary make this a can't-miss item for the whole family.

When I went to Sephora, a girl (with GORGEOUS hair) suggested both this and the Mimosa Hair Honey. She told me that almost everything was good in the CD line except for anything with "Amen" in the name. She said the "Amen" collection left her hair hard and dry so I bought the HHB. Now, it's great for laying down the hair, but it doesn't moisturize as well as my other moisturizers. Plus, it has beeswax in it which isn't a good thing for me since it's so hard to wash out. I'm on the fence with this product. I really like the fact that it slicks the hair down, but I don't like the fact that it doesn't moisturize. Has anybody tried it?

Ingredients: Water, Soybean Oil, Corn Oil, Beeswax, Shea Butter, Sweet Almond Oil, Cocoa Butter, Jojoba Seed Oil, Wheat Germ Oil, Sandalwood Fragrance, Essential Oils Of Sweet Orange, Lavender, Ylang-Ylang, Rosemary, Lemongrass, Patchouli, Bay and Cedarwood, Vitamin C, Xantham Gum, and Potassium Sorbate.

i'm really not interested in carol's daughter at all anymore, i saw her on the tyra show and i was like "oh, maybe i should try some of her products...or at least look into them." they're too expensive for my taste, just not worth it.

I have it and it's nothing to write home about. The smell is atrocious.

The smell is a bit strong - but I like it - a little really goes a long way - I used it for two-strand twists - after detangling and put a little on each one before twisting - it kept them nice and shiny :o)

I too tried the HHB and found nothing great about it. It did nothing to my hair and the smell, well it wasn't even worth using the rest.

If you haven't tried the hair milk, I'd recommend that.

As someone else stated, the price is a big deterent from experiementing with some of CD's products.

This product isn't that great. I bought it a few years ago when I wanted to try a lot of Carol's daughter stuff. I still have it and barely use it. I hate the smell. It doesn't smell as delicious as some of her other products. It really doesn't do a whole lot for my hair. and YES a little does go a long way. You don't need a lot.

Thank for commenting, everyone! Yes, the smell isn't pleasant at all. I will most likely try it out on a twistout in a few weeks.

I tried a couple of Carol's Daughter products for the first time this month. I got the Tui leave-in conditioner (which I love) and the Mimosa hair honey.

I bought the honey thinking that I can use it to help braid my daughter's natural hair or slick my relaxed hair into a bun. It has a strong corn oil smell and isn't rich enough to really coat your ends or tame frizzies. I prefer Oyin Burnt Sugar Pomade, but shipping to Canada has gotten too expensive for me when in comes to Oyin products.

I actually got used to the smell. I find that at first it makes my hair feel moisturized, but it really takes the MHH to make that moisture last. By itself...not so much.

Plus the ingredients are nothing to 'write home about' to quote a previous commenter. There are much better products with better ingredients as opposed to fillers for this price.
