Product Review - CARA B Naturally
I haven't been able to find an affordable product line that I could use for my daughter's hair. Usually I would use whatever products I have for on my daughter's hair; however, I would love for her to see that there are natural products, apparel and accessories that are made for children, just like her. At least for the products, I have to look no further!
On their website, it is noted that they "are chemical-free, certified natural and committed to promoting the belief that our Children Are Always Beautiful, Naturally."
I had the opportunity to review CARA B Naturally's product line, with the exclusion of the Baby Bar Soap Bundle.
On my daughter's hair, we used the Shampoo/Body Wash, Moisturizing Hair Mist and Leave-in Conditioner/Daily Moisturizer. I loved the results, as did my daughter. She said that the products smelled 'natural' and she took pride in using them.

What's your first impression of CARA B Naturally Kinky?
First, the packaging was cute. Secondly, my daughter's hair looked amazing! She liked it, I liked it and those that are on my Kinky Kinetik Facebook page liked it. I had done her hair on a Wednesday, after school. She then went to visit family from Thursday until Sunday and I had forgotten to pack the CARA B Naturally products for her to use daily. However, she did have her bonnet. When I went to pick her up on Sunday, I was shocked that her hair was still intact, for the most part, and did not appear dry. In looking at her hair, you could tell that it was soft, moisturized and still manageable. When I took her twists out, her hair was bouncy and just too cute! I am definitely going to use CARA B Naturally products again!
Check out the pictures of her hair...
Ready to be shampooed (I let her do this herself and check to make sure all tresses are fully covered.) Of note, the shampoo is not too thick, not too watery.
Next up, TWISTING! After I shampooed her hair, I misted on the Moisturizing Hair Mist and sealed the moisture in with the Leave-in Conditioner/Daily Moisturizer. Here are the results...
For the weekend, she went to visit with family. She did not have any products with her (bad mommy forgot them); however, she did have her bonnet. Here's how her hair looked when I picked her up...
I decided to take down her twists and see how her twist out would look. Drum roll please...
Well, it looks like there's a pretty little princess that absolutely LOVES her hair.
I didn't shampoo and condition her hair just yet though, I retwisted it all over again. Below is a picture of her twist out, before the retwist. I used the hair mist on it again and then applied the leave-in to seal in the moisture. The leave-in is pictured below. The results... the same as above!
SB - the lotion smells the same as the other products and is about the consistency as the moisturizer.
Please feel free to check out my other product reviews and/or come visit me on Facebook, Kinky Kinetik. Also, stay tuned as we will be partnering for a giveaway later this month to celebrate the launch of CARA B Naturally at CVS!
