Since my 1 year nappy anniversary is just around the cornor, I've decide over thenext few weeks to share with everyone some of the products I LOVE. First up is Karen's Body Beautiful (KBB). I can not sing the praises of these products enough. If Miss Karen ever went out of business or god forbid changed her formula I would just die. KBB products are apart of my every day routine, just like brushing my teeth and washing my face, I reach for KBB products.
My first love is the Karen's Body Beautiful Hair Cream. My hair loves this stuff and drinks it up. Here is the product description: Enriched with ingredients that stimulate hair growth and strengthen your hair shaft, Karen’s Hair Cream, moisturizes and adds sheen to dull, dry hair. Excellent for natural, relaxed or pressed hair. Use twice a week on hair and scalp or more as needed. (Works best on dry hair.) A little goes a long way with this product. I tend to add a nickel size amount to my hair every other day. The ingredients are simple: Shea Butter, Rosehip Oil, Vegetable Glycerin, Essential and/or Fragrance Oils, Vitamin E & Carrot Seed Oil. The product comes in a 8 oz tub and because you use such a small amount it will last you a really long time which makes it well work the $16 price tag. As with all KBB's products you can choose from a variety of fragrances for your product.
For those of you who prefer hair butters, the Karen's Body Beautiful Hair Butter is second to none! The hair butter is a bit more heavy than the hair cream. Go lightly with this product, if you over do it,it will leave a greasy feeling on your tresses. That greasy feeling will absorb after a day or two, but i live to touch my hair and can't stand it when product residue is left on my hands. Here is the product description: Made only from rich, thick butters and luxurious oils, Karen's Hair Butter conditions, softens and adds sheen to fragile, stressed hair. Great for natural, relaxed or pressed hair. Use twice a week on hair and scalp or more as needed. I personally use this product when my hair is feeling extra parched...maybe once a week, and usually at night so my hair gets a chance to absorb the product. Again this hair butter is filled with good stuff: Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter, Mango Butter, Jojoba Butter, Aloe Butter, Essential and/or Fragrance Oils, Grapefruit Seed Oil & Vitamin E. Again, you will pay $16 for 8 ounces and can choose your own fragrance.
Last up is what Karen's Body Beautiful is widely know for, her Hair Milk. I will be honest, in general I'm not a big fan of hair milks, they just aren't heavy enough to moisturize my hair. What I can tell you is that this hair milk makes a wonderful leave in conditioner for my hair, I also use the hair milk to achieve a killer, well moisturized twist out...a dab on each section leaves hair soft and shiny. 8 ounces of this product will run you $16 and again you can choose your own fragrance and it's filled with great ingredients: Purified Water, Jojoba and Avocado Oils, Vegetable Wax, Vitamin E, Panthenol, Arnica and Calendula Flowers, Echinacea, Nettle and Horsetail Extracts, Vegetable Glycerin, Wheat Germ Oil, Fragrance Oil and Natural Enzymes. The product description is pretty open: You're only a few dabs away from lush radiant and soft hair. Karen's hair milk moisturizes the detangles, defrizzes and defines your curls. Apply a generous amount to hair when damp. Also can be used on dry hair to refresh and moisturize. Can be used several times a week or daily.
FYI...KBB sells atrial size hair sample pack of her products so you don't have to committ to a full size/full price item. I actually saved the trial size containers and fill them with KBB product when I on vacation. BTW, the trail size hair butter and hair cream will last you a long time since you onlyl need to use nickel or dime size amount of the product.
