|Healthy Scalp Trio of Products|
Carol’s Daughter is also re-branding Lisa’s Hair Elixir with new packaging including an applicator and protective cap as well as coining it the Restoring Hair Oil. The brand believes healthy hair starts with the scalp. In addition to the Lisa’s Hair Elixir, they have added the Fortifying Scalp Spray to use in conjunction. Lastly, the Monoi line has a new product called the Monoi Oil Sacred Strengthening Serum. Lisa worded it correctly when she called this trio of products “skincare for your scalp.”
The Mirror Salon

After the introduction of the new products, Robin D. Groover, Mirror Salon collaborator, hair expert, and creator of Too Groovy Salon in Georgia, introduced us to the concept behind the salon. It was designed to be an “urban escape,” with the ultimate focus placed on healthy hair.

The name Mirror was chosen because they wanted each individual’s beauty to be reflected back at them (this is the reason why there are mirrors all over the salon; even when you get your hair washed, you see yourself). Consultations are encouraged because they are an opportunity to get a tailored regimen for your hair. The consultation will look at hair aspects such as porosity, elasticity, density and scalp condition.
My Personal Experience
During the presentation Robin mentioned that scalp massages were standard, and that’s completely true. During my service, I really liked how Alaina (my Mirror Salon stylist) finger detangled my hair and massaged my scalp as she sprayed the Scalp Fortifying Spray. She did this all prior to washing my hair. I was impressed because when I wash my own natural hair, I usually have to detangle before I get into the shower to shampoo my hair. After my shampoo and condition using the entire CD Monoi Line, Alana added the Monoi deep conditioner to my wet hair, and placed me under a hair steamer for about 30 minutes.

This was actually my first time sitting under a steamer, and my hair felt amazing after the treatment. Alana asked if she could do a natural hair style on my hair and I was like sure! I liked that she was comfortable and excited to style my thick 4C hair. She split my hair into four sections and smoothed Healthy Hair Butter onto each section (my hair was damp but not dripping wet) in a downward motion.
She then added Carol’s Daughter Heat Setting Foam, twisted my hair and added flexi rods to the ends. I sat under the dryer for another 30 mins and voila! I had very cute spiral set curls. Another plus of Mirror salon was that she talked me through each process and explained how I could do it at home.
