Every now and then you come across a product that makes you wonder “Where has this stuff been all my life?!” For a least a year I’d casually read about Karen’s Body Beautiful products on several blogs and seen the products at a few different beauty supply stores and Target. After contemplating, I decided to go ahead and give the products a try.
Best decision ever! Not only are the products free of parabens, silicones, and sulfates, but the ingredients are fairly simple and understandable. To me, that’s a big deal. Nothing is worse than reading the back of a bottle and you have zero ideas what all the long ingredients mean.
Below are the two Karen’s Body Beautiful products that are a MUST in my stash, how I use them and what I love about each. Enjoy!
How I Use:
Since the product is a little heavy, I use the hydrating cream to seal moisture into my hair after washing or co-washing before completing a twist-out.
The directions state the cream is best used on slightly damp or dry hair, so I soak up excess water with an old t-shirt after washing, then twist. I also use on dry hair if my ends look a little dry or hair looks dry overall.
Shea Butter, Aloe Vera Gel, Argan Oil, Allantoin, Lecithin, Potassium Sorbate, Acai Powder, Vegetable Wax, Vegetable Glycerin, Essential and/or Fragrance Oils & Vitamin E
What I love:
This cream is extremely hydrating, no pun intended to the name. Also, the smell is AMAZING! Get the pomegranate guava and you will not be disappointed.
How I use:
Use for co-washing once a week. Afterward, twist with a hydrating cream or whatever product I’m trying at the time. I actually had a chance to meet the founder and creator Karen herself, at a Target Tour in DC a few months ago, where she specifically stated it was formulated for co-washing so yeah…trust the creator!
Purified Water, Vegetable Glycerin, Vegetable Wax, Ale Vera, Echinacea, Nettle & Horsetail Extracts, Panthenol, Aritha Soapnut, Amla & Shikaiki Herbs.
What I love:
Great for detangling and nourishing at the same time. Although this is just a co-wash product my hair still feels pretty clean and VERY soft afterward.
Also, it’s super easy to use in the shower due to the construction of the bottle. Personally, I hate having to twist off a jar lid, dip my hand in the product then slather on my hair. This product is quick, easy, and to the point as far as using in the shower.
