Product Review: Carol Daughter's Hair Milk Pudding

So I tried Carol's Daughter Hair Milk Pudding last week and if you were thinking of buying it... here is my unbiased and honest product review.

Here is what the Comapny says about their product:
It promises:

The perfect hold – touchable, flake-free and full of shine – to define and shape curls, coils, kinks and waves.
  • Guar Gum holds curls in place and tames frizz
  • Avocado Oil leaves hair softer and stronger than before
  • Agave Nectar keeps moisture locked in for better definition and frizz control

The perfect curl simply needs the perfect hold – long-lasting, touchable and flake-free. This creamy pudding is every curly girl’s styling must-have. It defines and shapes curls, coils, kinks and waves when they need a little extra control, and it’s thick enough to hold any style but won’t weight hair down or leave behind a sticky, flaky residue. It’s packed with natural ingredients like Agave Nectar to ensure a high-shine finish, Guar Gum to give hair that perfect control and Avocado Oil to leave it soft, healthy and beautiful. Whether you’re setting, twisting or simply defining your curl pattern, this is your hairstyle’s new best friend. Perfect your curls to shine through any style!
PLUS, No Parabens, No Petroleum, No Mineral Oil, No Artificial Colors

My thoughts:

This product was given to me as a sample from Sephora and I couldn't wait to try it. The other products from the curl milk line didn't work that well with my hair so I was a little skeptical about this product and the results I would be able achieve. I decided to do a twist out using the product and here are some pictures of my results.

The product did give me a nicely defined twist-out. My hair had a nice amount of shine but I think I can attribute that to the addition of coconut oil on each twist during twisting and during the take down of the twist.

 Pros: My hair did have a touchable hold and I did notice that my hair frizz less than usually.
Cons: My hair did seem a tad bit dryer as the day went on and my hold wasn't as strong as I would like but the definition was still there.

I was able to achieve second day hair, though the curls were quite a bit loose and my hair was really dry.
I usally use Eco Styler gel mixed with The QP Mango Butter to do my twist outs and I didn't see much difference between these  products and the curl milk pudding. One major difference was the feel of the curl was softer to the touch but it didn't last as long.

(Second Day Hair-Bigger, looser, still defined, but dry)

Would I Buy This Product?

This product is good, but I wouldn't spend the $22(8oz) retailed price for a product that gives me similar results to my combination of eco styler gel (4.99 for 32 oz) and Elasta QP Mango Butter (4.99 10oz). I will finsished the sample size and try additional styles to see if it gives amazing results, but I wasn't blown away enough by this product to spend the extra money. I suggest getting your hands on a sample size and testing it out first.
(Great definition, great fragance,  led to  a little dryness in my hair and the hold wasn't strong enough)
