Tamara, creator of Natural Hair Rules, a curly hair blog, had the opportunity to sit down for an interview with Lisa Price of Carol's Daughter during a Curl Clinic in Houston.

Carol

Oprah has called Lisa Price, founder of Carol’s Daughter, as “a work-at-home mom.” She began her business by experimenting with fragrances and body products. Today, she is the creator and spokeswoman for a multimillion-dollar brand. Dillard’s, of Houston's Willowbrook Mall, hosted for a “Curl Clinic” event that was a must to attend. On Saturday, December 4, Natural Hair Rules got an exclusive interview with Carol’s Daughter. The event included complimentary curl analysis, live demonstrations, curl styling tips, and product giveaways.

Lisa’s Kitchen live demonstration included homemade recipes for Curl Tea and Scalp Exfoliation Treatment. The first was a demo of Dillard’s Special Curl Tea kit. This kit included a special blend of herbs and essential oils. It was as if Price had invited you into her home kitchen. She described the recipe and also gave instructions. She jokingly said, “do as I say, not as I do” as she referred everyone to the recipe card in our kits. This seasoned veteran had no need to measure, for she has perfected the recipe over time. The Curl Tea is used to conditioning both the hair and scalp. The scalp exfoliation treatment is a homemade treat for your scalp that is good enough to eat, literally. “From your kitchen” ingredients include brown sugar, coconut milk and grated coconut. These items and others were mixed in a bowl. One would section hair into 6 or 8 section and apply directly to scalp. You can mist hair lightly to assist with parting hair. Massaging exfoliate onto scalp with pads of finger. After about 15 minutes rinse hair and shampoo as normal.

Khoret Amen Hair Oil and Khoret Amen Hair Smoothie

Next on the program was a formal introduction of "Carol’s Daughter Curl Infusion.” Lisa spoke so fondly of this process in our exclusive interview. Oil Infusion is a conditioning treatment that combines Khoret Amen Hair Oil and Khoret Amen Hair Smoothie. You apply the combination of two products like a hair mask in sections from root to tip on your entire head. You then let it sit for 15-30 min depending on the desired intensity of your conditioning session. Then rinse with warm water. Lisa goes on to inform the audience that Khoret Amen Hair Oil was her first hair product. She referred to the hair oil as a product for serious hair care because of its nurturing properties.

Lisa said that after using oil infusions regularly along with the Hair Milk product line, she guarantees her natural hair will curl properly. “Curly with little or no frizz at all,” she added. Lisa has learned to overcome challenges in perfecting her natural hair regimen. “I learned how to deal with curly hair and gain control over it”. She knows what her hair will look like everyday, usually with no out of control surprises.

Curl Clinic

Lastly, Lisa shared information about her favorite product line of Carol’s Daughter: Hair Milk. Mentioned earlier, this product line is part of her daily hair regimen to maintain curls. These products include curl boosting ingredients and help tame frizz. The Hair Milk Original is a sixteen-year-old formula and the brand recently added Hair Milk Shampoo, Hair Milk Conditioner and Hair Milk Lite.

The Curl Clinic was a unique opportunity to enter the kitchen of Lisa Price and leave with a couple of her homemade recipes for hair and scalp treatments. Participants not only got to meet the woman behind the brand, but we also experienced the products in new ways while getting tips for hair and body products.
