carolsdaughtermarula

Transform your hair with Carol’s Daughter’s new Marula Curl Therapy Collection. This collection focuses on renewing your dry, unmanageable curls to transforming and training your curls to spiral into long-lasting perfection, Carol’s Daughter has used the super-softening, rich Marula oil. Marula Oil is a rare ingredient, harvested in South Africa, bringing moisture and nourishment to curls for 12,000 years.

The Marula Curl Therapy Collection is formulated to deeply rejuvenate each curl so they are trained to always be what you want them to be: soft, shiny and beautifully free.

A must have for the dry winter weather. I have naturally curly hair that is also very fine so products that can tame the curls usually weigh my hair down leaving it looking limp or greasy. That is until Marula Oil Softening Serum. The oil is so lightweight just a few drops and it hydrates my curls and leaves them frizz free without weighing them down.

My curls have been so great since using this product I started to think it was my hair. Then I forget to finish with a bit of the oil one day. And let me tell you it wasn’t my hair that’s awesome, without the oil by midday I looked like Animal from the Muppets. Oh and it also has the most soft and wonderful rose smell that makes my hair smell gorgeous. If you have curly hair prone to winter frizz be sure to check this one out.

Marula Oil Softening Serum ($18.00): With the star ingredient of Marula Oil, curls will transform into glossy, spiral curls making it easy to soothe and shine on instant.

Marula-Diffusing-Styling-Lotion

 

I love this so much I want to sleep with it under my pillow. Anyone with curly hair knows the fight to make naturally curly hair look good for more the 30 minutes. The new Marula Diffusing & Styling Lotion is just what the doctor ordered.

The lotion is light and smells like heaven. A small dollop and I just scrunch it into my curls after showering. This works for heat or air drying and leaves my curls silky smooth and with bounce. If you hit your local store and they are sold it it’s because I am stocking up so I never run out.

Marula Diffusing & Styling Lotion ($20.00): Conditioning Marula Oil and moisture-enhancing Almond Oil leave hair hydrated, healthy, and super shiny.

Now my hair usually has some clumps of curls and the rest goes straight or just wonky. This is my hair after I used a dollop of Marula Styling and let it air dry. Not fancy tricks no multi step process. Once its completely dry I warm a drop of the Marula oil in my hands and gently scrunch up into my curls. And my curls are left soft and bouncy and they last and last and last. The best part I can put my hair up in a bun then take it down and the curls are still great!

After trying these two fantastic products I will definitely be checking out these other items:

Marula-Hair-Mask

Marula Softening Hair Mask ($24.00): Rejuvenate your hair with this Marula Oil based mask, this rehydrates every strand and gives the extra moisture you need.

Marula-Gentle-Cream-Cleanser

Marula Gentle Cream Cleanser ($18.00): Manage your curls by pampering them with this rich, gentle cream cleanser.

We want to open this giveaway up to you guys. We would really love to send out a couple care packages this holiday season to women who could really use some encouragement. Do you know someone who has been down on their luck lately? Do you know someone who doesn’t get much for Christmas – but always provides for everyone around her? Do you know a woman who could use a little something special for Christmas? I think each of us know that one special person in our life who could just use something really wonderful….and that’s who we’re looking for.

  • YOUR CURRENT EMAIL ADDRESS

We will pick 2 women, an older woman and a younger woman (because of the product types). 

We will send a boxed gift to your woman, and include your letter/comment that won them the gift.

What do you think of Kendall as their brand ambassador? Check out the video below to see Kendall trying on her mom’s makeup as a little girl, pretty darn cute. Her family name may proceed her but she is a beautiful young girl who appears to be working hard to make a name for herself in the modeling world.

Estée Lauder  announced that it has signed Kendall Jenner, fashion’s new breakout star and social media sensation. Kendall will appear in digital, TV and print advertising campaigns and play an active role in creating social media content that will live on Estée Lauder’s channels well as her own.

“Bridging the worlds of high fashion, entertainment and social media, Kendall is a modern beauty who represents a whole new generation of women who live, breathe and share beauty, fashion and life 24/7, on their own terms, in a visually compelling way,” said Jane Hertzmark Hudis, Global Brand President, Estée Lauder. “She is the ultimate instagirl, and we are excited to leverage her image, voice, energy and extraordinary social media power to introduce Estée Lauder to millions of young women around the world.

“It honestly feels like a dream to represent such an iconic beauty brand — it is an incredible honor and quite humbling,” said Kendall Jenner. “I found out when I was backstage at Paris fashion week, and all this time I’ve had to keep the news top secret. I am so excited to share it now and be part of Estée Lauder.”

Kendall has an astounding social media following of over 30 million fans across Instagram, Twitter and Facebook, placing her as the number one model on social media1 with a fast-growing global audience. In the last year, Kendall has also experienced a meteoric rise in the beauty and fashion arena, marked by the Estée Lauder signing as well as a 13-page fashion feature in the December issue of American Vogue shot by Patrick Demarchelier.
