Ask a Question
We love when our curls bounce, shine and flow freely, but they get a bad reputation when they start misbehaving, naturally becoming dry, hard and unmanageable. That's why you need to take control and train them to spiral into place with this glossy curl enhancer that rejuvenates hair's natural moisture so any style is easy to perfect. Packed with Marula - a rich oil harvested for 12,000 years in Madagascar that instantly restores and softens your curls - this Softening Serum truly lets curls flow.
Squeeze a small amount into your hands and rub together. Massage oil into hair.

Hot Oil Treatment: Before using, let the bottle sit in a cup of hot tap water for 3 minutes. Before wetting or shampooing, massage oil thoroughly through hair, concentrating on damaged areas. Rinse with warm water and then shampoo.

Deeper Conditioning: Cover head with a towel and leave on hair for 5 minutes. Rinse thoroughly with warm water and shampoo.

Comments about Carol's Daughter Marula (Curl Therapy) Softening Serum:

I use this on dry hair before I wrap my hair at night and when I unwrap in the morning my hair has sheen and smells great! I also use this as a hot oil treatment/ pre-poo treatment. I love this oil all around.

    Comments about Carol's Daughter Marula (Curl Therapy) Softening Serum:

    I like this. It smells really nice. I was actually surprised at how moisturizing it was since it feels so light in your hand. The consistency is almost like vitamin E oil and a little bit of castor oil mixed. I have very thick course hair with low porosity and I would definitely buy this again.

      Comments about Carol's Daughter Marula (Curl Therapy) Softening Serum:

      This product is primarily designed for women of color, I believe, but I found that it helped my European friend's frizzy hair amazingly, so perhaps I stand corrected! She (a blonde) was delighted. I use the product daily, only a little in my twists and it's fabulous. The packaging is new, so at first, I didn't recognize. But good things can came in new packages!

        Comments about Carol's Daughter Marula (Curl Therapy) Softening Serum:

        I've started using carol's daughter as part of my search to find the perfect curly hair product, and I will say this is working really well. I use this on damp hair or dry hair depending on wether or not I washed my hair. It helps to smooth and shine my hair. It reduces frizz and helps to define my curls a little hit more. This product does not weigh down your hair or make it feel oily.

            Comments about Carol's Daughter Marula (Curl Therapy) Softening Serum:

            I've been using Carol's Daughter's products for about a year now, about the time I started shopping at Ulta. I've tried several of their lines. This is one of my favorite products. I use it after cleansing, and I mix it in with my other styling products. I love the smell, and I love how soft and shiny it makes my hair look and feel. I have very curly hair that tends to be dry and flyaway, and I love how this product makes my hair look shiny and feel soft. I buy it every time I'm in the store.

              I liked the smell of this product, I normally use it to massage my scalp. I have not tried using it any other way, but so far I like it.

                Comments about Carol's Daughter Marula (Curl Therapy) Softening Serum:

                I was introduced to this product by a friend. I have 3B / 3C hair. I use this oil as a pre-poo before co washing, to seal in moisture on my ends at night and twice a month as part of a deep conditioning treatment. The Marula cream cleanser and mask are amazing as well.

                It is not too heavy...
                It absorbs well...
                It SMELLS wonderful...
