Whether you're holding onto those straight ends or already committed the big chop, you can find relief from your Afro woes with Carol's Daughter Transitioning 1-2-3 Kit ($40). The three-piece set (which includes a shampoo, scalp spritz, and conditioner) is meant to simplify the lives of recent natural hair converts. While the shampoo is packaged as low-poo, there was still an impressive amount of suds, and the conditioner made detangling a breeze. But the standout star is the Renewing Scalp Spray. Sugarcane extract, biotin, and vera fruit extract help to heal a scalp burned by straightening chemicals, creating a healthy environment for hair to grow. The spray bottle allows you to easily get the product on, and the refreshing tingling massage gives that clean, cooling feeling — it's like a sea breeze facial for your scalp. And despite an adept knowledge of the beauty industry, I still stand by the belief that, if it tingles, it's working.
