After a ridiculously long and debauched Saturday night at a local landmark bar, my hair stunk like an overflowing ashtray on Sunday morning. Not only did it smell like the Marlboro Man threw up on me, but my curls were crunchy and hard and knotty. Ick. I spent my Sunday afternoon in beauty treatment rehab, using fantastic recipes courtesy of my favorite curly hair guru, Motown Girl.
Just like your skin needs to be exfoliated, so does your scalp. I started out with an extra-sweet Scalp Scrub, before my shampoo and deep condition, then I combed through my tangles and followed that up with an apple cider vinegar rinse.
My locks felt rejuvinated, but needed some extra TLC. So I slathered on a palm-sized portion of one of my favorite Carol’s Daughter products, Lisa’s Hair Elixir. The rosemary and peppermint scent made me feel refreshed, and my curls were soft, defined, and ready to face South Beach all over again!
Also, what gives with Sephora? Their version of Jada’s Hair Recipe is different from the version on the Carol’s Daughter website. Strange. Either way, it appears that my beloved Lisa’s Hair Elixir is currently out of stock. It’s my favorite Carol’s Daughter product (that and the new Almond Cookie Body Butter, which is to die for!), and it’s well worth waiting for, I promise.
