With the introduction of Disney’s The Princess and the Frog movie, Carol’s Daughter released their A Magical Beauty Collection, a line of hair and bath products geared towards little girls. I’m thrilled to see both Carol’s Daughter and Disney partnering up. Although I don’t have a daughter, I am so excited to see a company as large as Disney introduce a character who looks like my baby. Who knows, maybe next year we’ll get a little brown boy with an afro. How sweet would that be?
We received complimentary samples of the A Magical Beauty line and we dug in as soon as they arrived. Hey, just because my little man is a boy doesn’t mean he can’t use these fabulous products! He has hair and a little tushie to wash too! The products in the Carol’s Daughter A Magical Beauty Collection are very mild. Not only have they been pediatrician tested, they don’t contain harsh detergents, or parabens. Each product has a light scent. I’m not quite sure how to describe it, like flowers. Sunflowers perhaps since sunflower oil is one of the ingredients. I would love if they introduced a sweet, creamy scent. That’s what I was expecting.
The shampoo cleans and lathers well without stripping the hair of natural oils. We normally don’t shampoo, instead we copoo (wash with conditioner) because shampoo is known to strip hair of its natural oils. People with coarser hair have a hard time retaining those oils. The fact that this shampoo doesn’t work against the hair’s natural oils is a plus. The conditioner is rich and creamy. It makes it easy to detangle Jayden’s hair while bathing. I wish there was a similar leave-in! The bubble bath is a bonus. We’ve never used bubble bath because I didn’t like most commercial brands. I’ve found some I’d like to try, but I never got around to purchasing them. The Magical Beauty bubble bath creates lots of bubbles, but they disappear pretty fast. Jayden didn’t seem to mind, but when he gets older, I’m sure he’ll have a bone to pick with disappearing bubbles.
I truly appreciate these products as a mother of color and a mother who refuses to slather her son up in harsh chemicals. It has been quite the challenge finding products for kids with natural hair in its curly, coily, kinky goodness. And only a few of those products that I do find are free of parabens. I’m a nazi when it comes to the products we use on our son. So Carol’s Daughter A Magical Beauty Collection gets an A in my book.
