How to Use
Rated 4.62 out of 5 stars
How lucky am I?! @Influenster and @CarolsDaughter sent me the Goddess Strength line complimentary to review. Sundays are typically my wash day, so yesterday I got to work with all four products.
The line is scented with an earthy scent which wasn't overpowering. I appreciate that so much as many product scents overwhelm me and cause nausea. I started with the Fortifying Shampoo, which felt creamy. It immediately turned into a luscious lather. I'm not one of those that stay away from a lathering shampoo. As a child, my hair was healthy, long, and strong, and we all know products 30 years ago lathered. If it was fine for my hair then, it'll be fine for my hair now. I rinsed and my hair felt clean, but not stripped.
The Fortifying Conditioner was also super creamy. I used triple the amount of conditioner vs shampoo because I have thick and kinky hair. It's to be expected at this point that I'll go through conditioner much faster than shampoo. It went on easily and I wrapped my hair in a t-shirt to allow it to sit for 15 minutes. My hair felt soft, but it did not have juicy ringlets from the conditioner alone--I used my natural hair brush detangler while rinsing it out before my curls began to pop.
I immediately began to use the 7 Oil Blend Hair and Scalp Oil on my scalp after rinsing and wringing excess water out of my hair. I then put a bit of oil on my hands and did "prayer hands" to apply the oil to my strands. Another t-shirt was then wrapped on my hair to allow it to dry for an hour or so. Then I grabbed the Divine Strength Leave-in Cream along with the oil to twist my hair.
This morning, I went to the gym with my twists still in my hair, worked out, sat in the sauna, and showered. After getting dressed, I untwisted my hair.
My hair is shiny, moisturized, super defined, and still holds the earthy scent in a pleasant way. I am pleased with my first experience using the Goddess Strength line. I can't speak for long-term use, but my overall grade is a B+. #complimentary #goddessstrength #carolsdaughtergoddess #influenster
I used to use these products however, I do agree with another commenter that Isopropyl Alcohol and Dimethicone should not be in a conditioner. In my experience, my hair is easily de tangled and soft the day OF the wash. The next day no matter how much product I put in my hair it feels dry. Not only does the dimethicone coat your hair to prevent frizz, it won't allow any moisture in after it is applied which makes it a horrible ingredient for a conditioner, PLUS it's like the 3rd ingredient which tells you there is plenty in the conditioner. This product may work for some, but for me I had to find hair products with more natural ingredients.

This works nicely. It doesn't blow me away, but it does leave my hair feeling softer and it doesn't leave a film. However, the smell. My kids literally asked me if I started smoking after I used this. And, when I first opened it up in the shower, my initial thought was "Oh my, this smells like cigarettes!". The smell! Maybe it's a key ingredient, but if it's merely a scent that can be switched out for something more pleasant, please do!

The goddess strength shampoo and conditioner are both very nice. Not too Heavy or light. I feel like they are very nourishing.

I love the way it makes my hair feel much stronger but also soft. And it works great for length retention
Mel L from Tampa, FL
Very, very moisturizing formula that lasts long after the wash. Scent starts out strong, but fades to a nice Earthy, herbal aroma. Highly recommended purchase.

I am amazed at the difference in my hair! No more dry ends & tangles after washing!! When combing my hair out, there's absolutely NO HAIR LOSS in the comb. I am so elated to have found your productS & tell everyone I know about what I know…Thank you Carol, for having your Daughter!

Carols Daughter fanatic from Baton Rouge, La
I'm literally in love with this product now it smells so good along with working just as good. I've been a loyal customer for carols daughter for the longest started using the black vanilla then stopped once I discovered coco creme now goddess strength it has stopped the breakage of my hair 95% and leaves hair soft, I do agree with another review that it drys your hair but honestly not that but I still use the coco creme conditioner to take care of that other than that it's the best conditioner!! 10/10 LOVE IT!!

This is a great product leaves my hair feel healthy. I do not use it everyday though, probably 3 times a week because it really conditions your hair.
Debbie D29 from Houston TX
I've been using Goddess strength shampoo/conditioner for about a month now. My hair feels soft, I see less hair falling out, and it smells so good! Bonus, it's Vegan!!!
Marisol from Washington DC
I am not a conditioner girl. I deep condition and that's pretty much it. This is the first time I've bought conditioner in a while but I am soooo glad I did. This stuff feels so good on my hair. You get a lot of product for the price as well. This will be my go-to conditioner for co-washing days.
Punk17 from Milwaukee WI
I tried the black vanilla line... I didn't like it gave it away.
During the beginning of the pandemic my hair was breaking off so bad I had to try something and this miracle in the bottle was it.
OMG! This is the best conditioner I've ever used. It's detangles my hair like no other. Along with the shampoo. The whole four piece set is a blessing.
I tell all my natural hair ppl about this.
No more dry, tangled, breaking hair.

I don't know why anyone
Why are my natural sistas and brothers using this conditioner? Why oh why!? Does anyone read ingredient lists anymore? This conditioner contains isopropyl alcohol. THAT IS RUBBING ALCOHOL!!! HORRIBLE FOR AFRO HAIR! There are many other great black owned conditioners that don't contain this troublesome ingredient! TRY THOSE! DON'T USE THIS, IT WILL DRY AND BREAK YOUR HAIR!
PhillyFoxy from Philadelphia PA
This really does help with breakage. I noticed after using this once that I shed a lot less hair in the shower. The texture is thick like a hair mask, and it makes my hair feel incredibly soft. It has a sweet chamomile scent that lingersin your hair after washing, so keep that in mind when purchasing.

The smell is not the best but the product is amazing very moisturizing and hydrating. w
Would definitely recommend

I've purchased this conditioner elsewhere and it smells fantastic, but the bottle I received from Ulta smelled so bad I couldn't stand leaving it in my hair for just a few minutes. This is not the first time I've received a Carol's Daughter product with this rancid, expired smell - I don't think I will continue to purchase from the brand.

Instead of buying slip shampoo & conditioner which just doesn't work, this does! My daughter & I have dry rough uncurly hair. Hair that's thick, & hard to comb. Hair that you have to add gel, oil, leave-in conditioner & all of that just to get some curls. I think we're 4c, yeah that stuff. I left all that alone & are working towards the natural patterns that we have. This condition has her hair so manageable that I couldn't feel my fingers as it made her hair just that soft & silky. Her hair was way easier to comb & to top it off it smells good. Her grandmother said she smells good. I said it's her hair. Finally time has come where I can stop looking & buying from every hair care line that comes out. I have found my conditioner.

I've been using it for A few weeks and I don't like how my hair feels
Yetarra73 from Iowa
I just used this over the weekend on 10/24. I've been missing out on these CD products, shame on me!!
Aneri from undisclosed
I have extremely dry, fine, straight hair that tangles and breaks extremely easily. I've tried other moisturizing and/or nourishing conditioners, and they always left my hair a tangly, sticky mess that was impossible to comb through. After using this, my hair barely has any tangles and feels so soft and light! It smells great too, and I love that it's a vegan formula.
Lateshia from Chicago, Illinois
This is a big deal ladies! Supple, smells good, feels well conditioned, and has that salon finish to it. I really can't ask for more for maintenance and an on the town do. It makes for glamorous hairdos to come.
Tynitta from Drexel Hill, PA
Great conditioner, not heavy but it does an amazing job on my daughter hair. Def one we will be using for a while
khapris1 from undisclosed

Bernice C from undisclosed
