It's been a minute since my last NaturallyCurly.com review, but I'm back! I have tons of products to tell you guys about, but first up is Carol's Daughter's Rosemary Mint shampoo and conditioner set....

This minty scented, invigorating shampoo deeply cleanses and removes product build-up and daily toxins, without stripping away essential moisture.

It may be the easiest, natural cleansing experience you ever had."

This invigorating, moisturizing conditioner is just the replenishing boost your hair needs to keep it looking lovely. Made with naturally nourishing ingredients—Rosemary, Peppermint, Pro-Vitamin B5 and Jojoba Seed Oil Sage—that deeply moisturizes, so your hair will feel softer, smoother and healthier."

My Thoughts: Whenever I'm reviewing a new shampoo I always like to start on really dirty hair. The label claims that it's "the ultimate hair detox" so I wanted to give it a real test. On throughly rinsed and soaking wet hair, I applied the shampoo. The first thing I notice was the smell...very minty and very strong. Not only was the peppermint to strong for my nose, but my scalp felt a little irratated as well. However, it got my hair and scalp very clean and it made my curls soft and springy. It also had a nice mild lather to it, not too sudsy. Next I applied the conditioner generously through my hair in 2 sections. It goes on pretty smooth and gave an adequate amount of slip. Normally I like to leave the conditioner on for 5 or 10 minutes and then detangle and rinse, but just like the shampoo the mint was to much for me and I couldn't wait to rinse it out. But just like the shampo, the condtioner lived up to the label's claims. My hair was soft, defined and well purified lol!

However, I doubt if I would actually purchase this duo. Even though the final outcome was great, I need to enjoy the full expirence before I pay $12 and $16 for a product. The peppermint was too strong for my scalp, but if hair doesn't mind the mint I say go for it. Good stuff but it's not for me.

Rating: 4 out of 5

  1. I think I've tried some moisturizing Carol's Daughter products and wouldn't exactly give it a 4. I think you are on to something with the Ori though. I will have to give that a shot, but overall on Carol's Daughter, a no-go for me.
