Carmel Treatment versus Diva Smooth Treatment
Well, guess what the main ingredient is for this treatment? Honey. As you all know, I fell in love with honey when I did my last retightening. The honey by itself seemed moisturizing and a little weighted.
Now, that I have been introduced to the Diva Smooth hair treatment, I have also discovered that E'tae Products have been offering an "original" Carmel Treatment since 1999. So the Carmel Treatment is also honey and bananas based, and apparently, from my research, they were in existence before the Diva Smooth treatment came out.
According to some reviews, people feel the Carmel treatment works better than the Diva Smooth treatment. In addition, I have found another local hair salon that discontinued the Diva Smooth line and is only offering the Carmel treatment.
I personally have not tried the Diva Smooth treatment on a client yet. There are youtube videos on the Diva Smooth process as well as reviews of the Carmel treatment.
There have been many DIYers that feel that they would rather create their own natural batch of the Carmel or Diva Smooth Treatments. Nicole Burnett of the SensibleSpoon.com has a recipe for the Carmel treatment that you can try at http://www.sensiblespoon.com/recipe-sensible-style-hair-care-treatment/
If you are lazy, then DivaSmooth can be purchased online and the Carmel treatment can be purchased from E'tae Products online.
The products listed in the ingredient list are mostly edible. These two treatments are considered chemical free relaxing agents. They are designed to assist with keeping the natural hair from reverting at the first sign of humidity.
I have seen the Carmel conditioner listed as Caramel Treatment on people's reviews. The Etae products spell it without the extra "a."
Well, you natural hair ladies have another recipe or product to try to make your everyday job easier! Relaxed clients are also welcomed to try these natural based products as a reconstructor as needed. You will need to protect your clothes and surroundings when using these products because I have repeatedly heard that it is messy. Have fun!
