Review: This is my FAVORITE conditioner!!! I’ve been using it for about 2+ months every time I wash/co wash my hair. It gives me the most amazing slip among any other conditioners I’ve tried such as, HEHH, HETT, Suave Naturals, VO5, Bed Head MM etc. It’s a green color (hence the cucumber), I enjoy the smell, it’s fresh-like lol. It’s pretty thick in consistency and goes on very smoothly. It detangles like a dream. I’ve used it for co washes, detangling, in my spritz, and as a leave in and I couldn’t be happier. It’s defiantly my go to conditioner for anything I may need. My hair feels like butter during and after I condition with it.
Now onto the verdict:

Would I purchase it again & does it have staple potential??

Yes!! It is my #1 conditioner for the price and results. I do wish it came in a liter size, and for those of you who like to stock up, it also has an expiration date so just be cautious of that when you go to buy 10 bottles at a time lol. There is also a leave in conditioner for $12.99 in Target, the ingredients I think are identical except for maybe 1 or 2 differences, but I have yet to try it.

I give it ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ out of 5 ♥

Kinky Curly Knot Today Leave In Review

Ingredients– Mango fruit extract, slippery elm, marshmallow root, lemongrass, cetyl alcohol, behentrimibium methosulfate, citric acid, phenoxyethanol and natural fragrance

Product Description: 
KNOT TODAY TM is a creamy herbal conditioner and detangler designed to smooth the cuticle and remove knots, snarls and tangles from thick curly textured hair.
After washing hair, apply KNOT TODAY TM generously and work through troubled areas with a wide tooth comb.
Can be used as a regular rinse out conditioner for wavy hair or as a leave-in for thicker curlier hair types.
An excellent product to use after removing braids and extensions.

I applied my KCKT in the shower on freshly conditioned and mostly detangled hair. My hair was feeling a little dry because I had terrible build up from something and ended up using my Aussie Moist shampoo to get it out ☹ Anyways upon application, any tangles I had left in my hair seemed to melt away. A little goes a long way with this stuff, the consistency is thinner than what I usually like but about a quarter sized amount of this stuff was enough for my whole head. It went on so smoothly and my hair felt great! It was easy to spread through my hair and my fingers glided right thru while I finished detangling. I didn’t rinse any out because I tend to need more conditioner left in.

Now usually to prevent frizz I make sure I do a cold water rinse before getting out of the shower, but I was going to twist my hair up anyways so I wasn’t to worried about frizz. But to my surprise I had very minimal frizz when I got out the shower and I had amazing curl definition!! After a several uses and alternating between KCKT and my Giovanni Direct Leave in, I can definitely say the KCKT gave me the curl definition that almost competes with my gel, granted it gave me no hold but I wasn’t expecting that from a leave in conditioner anyways. I let my hair air dry and it’s usually around this time when my hair starts feeling dry again, but this wasn’t the case.

I also love the smell of this conditioner. I can’t put my finger on exactly what smells so good about it but I can say I prefer it over my Giovanni Direct Leave In, which seems to have an uh… interesting smell to me lol

Now onto the verdict:

Would I purchase it again & does it have staple potential??

Yes!! Defiantly in a bigger size though for some reason 8oz bottles freak me out because I tend to be heavy handed.

I give it ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ out of 5♥
