Although I’ve been relaxer free for about 8 years now, I’ve still been using heat occasionally and coloring my hair. However, this summer I gave up on my trying to go blonde and decided to dye my hair back to its natural dark brown shade. Unfortunately, the intense summer heat changed my hair to a auburn shade that I don’t want. So, I’m dying my hair, yet again. I don’t want to, because my hair is getting thicker and drier by the day. Hopefully, this will be the last time I dye my hair for awhile and I can begin trying to “baby” and nurture my hair.
The first thing I plan to do is buy and try Carol’s Daughter’s Olive Oil Infusion kit. It’s a softening and detangling kit that’s great for most hair types, including my colored and heat damaged hair. The kit comes Khoret Amen Hair Oil and Hair Smoothie. Everyone knows that olive oil is an amazing product to use on dry hair, so this sounds perfect to me right now. Also, I’m loving the $25 price tag.
Aside for me being known as an artist, fashionista, and little sis to King Bee, she is also known for her head of big hair. People still might remember when she did the big chop and cut off all her hair. I loved it, but could never do it. Instead, I opted to transition in little steps by growing a nice length of new growth before I did the “Big Chop”. That whole time was probably one of the most difficult times for me and my hair.
Transitioning your hair from relaxed to natural was a BIG thing to do 7 years ago when I did it, because there wasn’t that much info and products out there to makes that big moment easier. Well, that’s all about to change for thise of you who have decided to go natural, thanks to Carol’s Daughter.
“This easy 3-step kit offers a solution to the 3 problems transitioners face: product build-up, scarred scalp & breakage at the points of demarcation. Now big choppers, long grow-outs and protective stylers can transition from relaxed to natural hair with less shedding, a healthier scalp and softer hair.” according the brand’s website.
Oh, how I wish this was available when I was transitioning, because I dealt with ALL of those issues and had the hardest time dealing with them. Luckily, I was able to tackle them, but not as easy if this kit was around back then.

I want to wear my natural curls, but my love of straightening and press curling during the winter has decided to cling to my hair for spring. However, they are not welcomed! So, I bought a couple of go-to essentials for my curly hair from Carol’s Daughter today! More after the jump!
