Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition Fortifying Shampoo for Type 4 Naturals | Product Review

Finding a good shampoo that won’t leave coarse, type 4, afro textured hair hard, dry and brittle can seem like an overwhelmingly daunting task.

Product Review: Carol’s Daughter Marguerite’s Magic Restorative Cream Hairdress

Carol's Daughter Marguerite's Magic Restorative Cream Hairdress

(Editor's note: Carol's Daughter products are now sold only at Target, on, in select Walgreen's Drug Stores and on the Carol's Daughter website.)

About a week ago I decided to treat myself to something really nice so I stopped by Macy’s on State Street in downtown Chicago and headed straight to the Carol’s Daughter counter (Hey, I work hard, I deserve it! LOL).

I had heard many great things about the brand which is at the forefront of the transition natural movement and uses top of the line natural products in its hair and skin care products.
