Carol's Daughter Almond Milk Hair Mask Review

This hair mask has a pleasant almond fragrance, and helps smooth out your flyaways and tangles—but it may weigh your hair down.

Bad hair days are the worst. Some people wear hats or scarves to cover up their less-than-luscious locks, but I usually just resort to tying my hair in a ponytail and using a bobby pin to smooth back my side bangs. Can any hair mask make your bad hair days a thing of the past? Probably not. But Carol’s Daughter Almond Milk Hair Mask is one of those products that feels like an indulgence, and self care at its finest—even though its smoothing benefits don’t last very long for me.

My Dad the Chemist’s review of Carol’s Daughter Almond Milk Hair Mask

Dear Emily, this mask is for deep conditioning hair , formula looks ok for dry , damaged, splitter hair but probably not for all hair type, for people who has thinner hair or oily hair, this mask may weigh down the hair or look too oily.


Carol’s Daughter Almond Milk Hair Mask Review

Carol’s Daughter Almond Milk Hair Mask has a pretty potent almond fragrance, so don’t buy it if you don’t like the smell of almond (the smell reminds me of almond extract mixed with soap). I think it’s a pretty solid option to use as a nice-smelling conditioner, but don’t expect it to completely smooth away your flyaways or reduce frizz (especially in the summer humidity). But it is really nice to pamper yourself with something like this every now and then. Plus, it leaves a really nice smoothing effect when you first rinse it out. Even though it made my hair less frizzy overall, it also made it feel slightly weighed down, as my dad mentioned—but I have pretty fine hair, so YMMV. If you have fine hair like me, avoid applying it anywhere near the scalp, because it can make your scalp really oily.
