Carol’s Daughter is finally starting to roll out products for the transitioning movement it announced a while back and the first release from the line is a new Transitioning 1-2-3 kit specifically designed to help women who are moving from relaxed to natural hair.
The three parts of the kit are:
- A purifying low-lather cleanser designed to remove product buildup. According to how-to tips in a review by Christina Brown of lovebrownsugar.com, this is not a moisturizing shampoo; it is specifically designed to clarify your strands and strip them of product which is why you’ll need to the other pieces of the line to fully reap the benefits for your hair.
- Step 2 is a renewing scalp spray that you place on wet hair to clarify and exfoliate your scalp. You should part your hair every 1/2 inch and spray the product about four inches from your scalp; when your whole head is saturated, massage for 1 minute then let it sit for 15 minutes before rinsing. This product is particularly useful if you have protective styles like kinky twists or braids where you can’t wash your entire head because it will at least remove product buildup at the roots.
- The final step is a restoring anti-breakage treatment which any transitioner can tell you is crucial. You should leave this product on your head for 15 minutes like a deep conditioner and then rinse.
According to independent study results on the website, 93% of women who tried the new kit said they experienced less shedding and had a healthier scalp and softer Strands. Beyond Christina Brown’s written review, Mae from Naturalchica.com also did a video review you can check out below.
