Almond Cookie Shea Soufflé

Carol's Daughter Almond Cookie Shea Souffle

I LOVE the texture. I LOVE how it is rich and light at the same time. Moisturizes like a heavy-hitting body cream, but with a light texture that glides onto the skin. I love how easy it is to rub it in and I love the dewy feel it leaves on the skin. Soufflé is gorgeous to me. Perfect all the time.


Body Cleansing Gel—I love the moisturizing lather. It’s a sulfate-free cleanser that cleanses and hydrates and doesn’t dry out the skin, but rinses clean. LOVE our Body Cleansing Gels. Perfect performance every time!

Body Butter—I love the shine it leaves behind without feeling heavy and greasy. It is a beautiful emulsion that just penetrates into the skin. In my house the one that gets used most often is Love Butter. Gordon, my husband, loves that and I love the way it smells on him. He used to use Ocean in the warmer months and Love Butter in the colder months. I have to get some more Ocean for him and refrigerate it before we sell out of our final stock.

I love this scent and I think it smells very sexy on the skin. It is not an overly foody-type vanilla. It is a sexy vanilla. I think people will just want to know what you are wearing and think that you smell delicious, but may not be sure exactly what it is. I love that it smells as if you have dusted your body in sugar, yet it doesn’t smell sweet. If you love Almond Cookie then consider this her younger sister!

I use a cocktail of Mimosa hair Honey and Hair Milk for Becca’s hair, that’s my daughter. The Mimosa is a great pomade that leaves shine without being too heavy.


Face butter

I apply Face Butter to my face every night before I go to bed, and in the colder months I will use it in the morning, as well. I love how gentle it is and that I can use it on myself, my 4-year-old and my husband can use it, too. It is very soothing. When my cheeks are stung from the heat or the cold, it is the perfect remedy.


My husband, Gordon, likes to go to Chinatown on Sundays for dim sum. One Sunday he brought home an almond cookie for me. As I tested it, I could taste the individual flavors in the cookie and I wondered what those notes would smell like together. The goal of the scent was not so much to recreate the scent of that cookie, but more the feeling I felt receiving it. That warm feeling of receiving a thoughtful gift from someone I love who loves me. The warm feeling you feel, knowing that you are loved. Hence, Almond Cookie is not overly sweet or gourmand and is more powdery, soft and warm.

  • Try using Hair Milk Lite with your wash & go’s, braid and/or twist-outs. Hair Milk Lite is a lightweight curl boosting styling cream designed to enhance curls and waves while also eliminating frizz. After washing and conditioning, apply about a quarter sized dollop to damp hair and style as usual.
  • Great enough for daily use, the Hair Milk Perfecting Shampoo is gentle and suitable for all hair types. Infused with Vitamin A, E and Pro-Vitamin B5 to help minimize tangles and balance moisture.
  • Excellent for co-washing! The Hair Milk Perfecting Conditioner is an indulgent, penetrating moisture treatment that restores while supporting healthy-looking natural curls. Enriched with essential oils, Biotin and Pro-Vitamin B5 to help replenish and and strengthen “thirsty” curls.
  • For a stronger hold, try using the Hair Milk Perfecting Conditioner as a leave-in styling cream. Use sparingly to help define coils, tendrils and ringlets.
  • The Hair Milk Original formula has only undergone a face lift. Same great product but in a fresher, newer package! To help define your curls and add moisture, apply evenly to damp hair prior to styling.

Lisa Price, founder of Carol's Daughter, offers a few tips and suggestions to make curly, coily and kinky life a bit easier:

  1. Do you use hair gel, hairspray or mousse to style your hair? Get the "gook" out by clarifying your hair with our Rosemary Mint Purifying Shampoo and Conditioner at least once per month (or as necessary).


  2. Did you know? Our Rosemary Mint Conditioner is great as a conditioning co-wash. Simply use in place of shampoo for daily cleansing.


  3. Buy Carol's Daughter products here!

  4. Instead of using hair gel (that can sometimes be drying and damaging), try 100% Aloe Vera gel instead.


  5. If you're transitioning from relaxed to natural, try wearing braids or twists if you don't want to cut your hair.


  6. Proper washing technique: Do not pile your hair on the top of your hair when shampooing. Allow your hair to hang down while focusing on your scalp. Use your fingertips (not nails) to massage your scalp.


  7. Did you know? Some conditioners can be used as a styling cream for curls. The thicker the consistency, the better. Experiment to find which ones work best for you.


  8. Adding a tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil or Unrefined Virgin Coconut Oil to a palm-full of your regular conditioner will give you increased (and amazing!) moisturizing benefits.


  9. For more control and shine, try using a dime sized amount of Hair Milk on damp hair before styling.


  10. Woke up with bad curls that can’t be revived? Use 100% Aloe Vera gel to help slick back your hair into cute, sleek, poufy ponytail puff.


  11. To help stimulate hair growth, massage your scalp using Lisa’s Hair Elixir as a pre-shampoo treatment.

Summer is just about here and even though we love our curls, some days we want to rock a straight style too. Don’t let the humidity stop you! Check out this how-to video to see how you can get beautiful, shiny and HEALTHY straight hair the right way. By the way—our model Vaughn’s hair is AWESOME! Carol's Daughter products are available here.


Carol's Daughter products are available in CurlMart!

During our video shoot, no one could get over Vaughn’s silky, yet lengthy, locks. She’s got baby fine, soft curly hair (about a 3a or 3b type) that breaks easily and needs extra-special care. Our resident stylist, Eric Bland, takes on the challenge. Check him out in this how-to video:
