Carol’s Daughter Coco Creme Deep Moisture Mask Review

One of the things I’ve learned over the years as I’ve been on my healthy relaxed hair journey is that just because you have a bad experience with a couple of products from a hair brand doesn’t mean that will happen with all of the products. This was my experience with the brand Carol’s Daughter.

Earlier in my healthy relaxed hair journey, I tried a couple of Carol’s Daughter products and had some bad experiences with them and basically swore off of the brand. You can see more about those experiences in this video and this blog post if you’re interested.

It wasn’t until several years later that I decided to give any Carol’s Daughter product a look. That was because I was desperate. I had protein overload and was struggling to find a moisturizing deep conditioner or hair mask that had no protein ingredients.

One of the few brands that had protein-free hair masks was Carol’s Daughter. Since I was desperate I decided to give the Coco Creme Curl Quenching Deep Moisture Mask.

Now I know the name has curl in it and typically would turn a relaxed head away but as I mentioned before I was desperate, and this hair mask claimed to help extremely dry hair. Additionally, the Carol’s Daughter Coco Creme Deep Moisture Mask claims to help
  • Add deep moisture
  • Restore shine
  • Add touchable softness
  • Improve manageability

I was also attracted to this Carol’s Daughter hair mask because it has no silicones, no parabens, no petrolatum, and no Mineral Oil so it wouldn’t cause build-up on my hair and potentially keep my hair from receiving moisture throughout the week.

After my first couple of uses of the Carol’s Daughter Coco Creme Deep Moisture Mask I started to notice a big difference in my hair. My hair started to soften up, became more manageable, stayed moisturized longer between washes, and overall looked healthier. Now I know that some of other things and products I was using helped with that, but I believe this hair mask played a large role.

Because this is a hair mask the ingredients are richer and more concentrated so it doesn’t need to stay on your hair for too long. In fact, the directions give you a few options after applying it to wet hair
  • Leave on for 5 to 7 minutes then rinse with cool water
  • To deepen the treatment put on a shower cap and sit under a hooded driver for 10-15 minutes
  • Or you can leave it on for 30 minutes without using any heat

Personally, I feel like I get the best results when I apply it to my clean, wet hair, and leave it on for 30-40 minutes using heat. I typically use my Hot Head Deep Conditioning Cap for heat but a hooded dry also works if I don’t mind being tied down to one spot for a half hour.

You can see me applying the Carol’s Daughter Coco Creme Deep Moisture Mask in this video.

As I mentioned I really like this hair mask and it’s become a staple. It’s the one I always recommend when someone is looking for a moisturizing deep conditioner or hair mask without protein.

It retails for about $12 which isn’t bad for 12 ounces of product. Even though I can get a bit heavy-handed now when I apply it to my hair one jar still lasts me a few months.

While it’s not hard to find Carol’s Daughter Coco Creme Deep Moisture Mask isn’t as it was when I first started using it. You can find this hair mask at Target, Walmart, and on the Carol’s Daughter site.

Having such a good experience with this hair mask has made me open to trying other Carol’s Daughter hair masks and conditioners. It’s crazy that I was able to like a product from a brand that I had such negative experiences with in the past.
