Get Funky With It

Watch out Carol, there's another 'daughter' taking on all-natural hair care.

Uncle Funky's Daughter is a husband and wife line based in Houston that caters to curly hair textures. Although, the brand was founded in 2003, I only heard of it a few months ago. First the name caught my attention and then the packaging bearing a woman rocking an Afro sealed the deal. I knew I had to try a product from this eye-catching line.

Since I suffer from extremely dry, flakey scalp I was excited to try the brand's moisturizer, Shining Star. Made with natural jojoba and soybean oil, this pleasantly-scented concoction quenched my hair's 'thirst' like no other product I've tried this year. It's lightweight, yet non-greasy formula coated my hair and scalp leaving it shiny without the weight where many other moisturizers fail.



While I'm still a huge fan of Carol's Daughter, I'm making room in my beauty shelf for one more child who will bring on that funk!

Have you tried Uncle Funky's Daughter products? If you would like to try the Shining Star ($16 value) moisturizer, simply leave a comment and the winner will be randomly selected and announced next week.

**The winner of the Essie polish is Ladybug! Congrats and please send me your mailing address.

I haven't heard too much about this brand, but if the moisturizer doesn't leave your hair feeling greasy I'd love to try it!
