Simply the best leave in conditioner for natural hair out there

I love this leave in conditioner, which has become one of the staples for my haircare.I didn’t believe the hype surrounding this Knot Today, and in fact tried everything but this product when I first went natural. Before using Knot Today, I once used Giovanni’s Leave In, per the recommendation of another natural. After a shampoo and condition, I’d use Giovanni as a Leave In conditioner for my hair to provide extra moisture. It worked okay, but it didn’t soften my hair much.I finally gave in a few months ago, when Knot Today arrived at a local store, to try it. When I first put Knot Today on my hair, I noticed an immediate difference compared to earlier washings. Instant Magic. My hair softened, felt moisturized, had great slip and was easier to detangle. The fresh smell of the product was a bonus. Depending where you get it, the price is a little hefty, but it does last a while (depending on how you use it). I usually just put this one once a week — to be economical. But, if you use it miore than once a week, I’m sure the benefits will be even greater. For me, a little bit lasts a while.I highly recommend this.INGREDIENTS: Organic Mango fruit extract, organic slippery elm, organic marshmallow root, organic lemongrass, cetyl alcohol, behentrimonium methosulfate, citric acid, phenoxyethanol and natural fragrance

Great Product! Buy it somewhere else though.

I started using this product about 3 months ago. I have added it to my wash regimen since I was lacking a basic detangler. It is thick enough to coat natural 4b/4c hair without feeling gunky and greasy. It has a lovely smell. One of the better uses I have for it is I have used it to mix in with my other products like a moisture mist I make with aloe vera juice, water, veggie glycerin, jojoba oil and essential oils like peppermint and lavendar. I also add this product into my shea butter leave-in which has coconut oil, shea butter, essential oils, and a little veggie glycerin. I have found that adding this product makes the consistency of my mixes much more palatable for my hair. And, my hair stays detangled.To test its awesomeness, I used it on my mom’s thick, relaxed hair. She said her hair has never been so silky. I don’t use heat or blow dryers on my hair so I wanted to see if that would alter the potency of this product. We did a light blow dry on my mom’s hair and used curling irons two times during the week. Her hair is still extremely silky and she is excited to buy it for herself. All you need is this and a little oil to round out your wash routine. I highly recommend it!I came back and had to give it 4 stars because I found that, after several uses, my hair wasn’t drying as soft as it should. So, I cannot use this product alone on my coarse hair.The only thing to note here is that the price is EXTREMELY high. I bought this at Target for almost $10 cheaper. I think a lot of these types of products (for curly/kinky hair) are now becoming more and more available at neighborhod retailers. I would definitely look there before buying. If you can’t find it there, break down and buy it here. It is truly a great product to add to any regimen.

great for those transitioning from relaxers to natural hair.

I purchased this product after watching a Youtuber rave about it. I find that this product helps me tremendously on shampoo day. You get an 8 oz bottle, and for my short hair (neck length bob), I only need about 1 or 2 quarter sized amounts. I work the product through my hair from the roots to the ends, being careful to avoid using too much (your hair will seem heavily coated if you use too much). Then I comb it through with a wide tooth comb. Amazing results can be seem even before I brow dry then flat iron my hair. This product seems to cut down on the time it takes to completely style my hair. This product should last me at least 6 months; however, if your hair is long and/or thick you may use much more product, so it may not last as long for you. UPDATE on July 19, 2011 FYI: Hair serums give me the same results, and are cheaper. I’m using Motions, and Paul Mitchell’s hair serums.

Loved It, But Too Expensive, So I Made My Own!!!!

This product was great!!! It made the knots, literally melt out of my hair! Problem? It’s way to expensive for the amount you have to use if you have super thick curly hair like me. I only bought this one time before I decided it was cheaper just to make it myself, and it works exactly the same!

Was a let down

I thought this stuff would be really good, and it was just not any better than any other detangler. Just for me Hair milk works better for far less money and is less iky feeling.

The truth!!!

I have yet to find a product that yields results like this!!!! This product coupled with the kinky curly custard is AMAZING! My curls are left defined, soft and COMPLETELY frizz free! I wash my hair with sulfate free shampoo and use this as a leave in conditioner, use the kinky curly custard in sections, and then diffuse my hair and get GREAT results. The first time I used this product I received so many compliments at work about my hair. It leaves it so shiny, and with great curl definition. I also am able to achieve fourth day hair with this product…LOVE IT!!!!!!

My holy grail detangler

This is my staple detangler since I discovered it in 2007. It has taken the trauma out of shampoo day for me. I have very dense, cotton-like, dry, tangly, type 4 hair and I was rather skeptical of all the rave reviews that I have been hearing about this all natural conditioner. Using a wide tooth comb and my fingers, Knot Today allows me to easily remove annoying knots and tangles without breaking off my hair, and it is probably the main reason why I have been able to keep my growing bra-strap length hair natural without relaxing it. I use it both as a detangler and as a leave-in conditioner. Very importantly, it is non-greasy and also water based so it washes out with each shampoo and therefore does not leave any product build up on my hair. It also does not irritate my sensitive scalp. I always have 3 or 4 extra bottles on hand to make sure I do not run out. One of my beef with Knot Today is that it does not provide moisture to my hair when dry, however I get around that by lightly using a little coconut oil over it and also using my own home-made water based aloe vera spritz to re-hydrate my hair as needed. Knot Today is also rather expensive since I can easily go through a 8-oz bottle in about a month, using it once per week.

best stuff ever

this is one (of only 2) conditioners that i ever use in my natural hair. i am black american, no mix of anything…just regular nappy hair! i put this stuff in and voila!—i can get a comb thru it without breaking a sweat (or my comb). amazing. i use it everyday. works best if your hair is damp, but i put it on my dry, right-outta-the-bed hair in the AM and it still does it’s magic. i’m a knot today believer.

Best a leave in

Originally this product was a fail for me because I attempted to detangle with it on semi dirty hair. But when I tried it again on clean and detangled hair, it left my hair moisturized for days! I have since come to the conclusion, that for thick 3c hair it is best as a leave in and even better mixed with other leave ins.Also since using it my breakage has all but stopped!

Good product if you can afford it and don’t have thick hair

I liked this product on my 4b hair. It enhanced the curl/wave pattern without a lot of shrinkage and had a nice smell. So, you may wonder why only 3 stars? Well, I have A LOT of hair and had to use A LOT of product. Unfortunately, my finances cannot sustain me using half a bottle of product, that costs approximately $18, in one sitting. The same goes for the Kinky Curly Curling Custard. If I wanted to spend this much money on hair care products, I would have continued RELAXING my hair!!!

Good for styling and locking in moisture–awful at all else!

OK, my title pretty much says it all! Kinky-Curly Knot Today is about the same price as all the other vegan/all-natural/cruelty-free/insert-something-else-here curly-girl products at your local shops. However, the coconut-y tropical smell is what pulled me in. That, and I told myself that I could get more use out of this instead of the Jane Carter Curl Defining Cream because I would be able to detangle.I was wrong.This is HORRIBLE for detangling extremely curly and kinky hair! The product is so gloopy that it’s great for locking in moisture or setting my styles, but it’s absolutely awful for detangling hair! Instead of separating the strands with slippery goodness, it makes them clump together. I had a lot a KNOTS at the ends of my hair after washing with a relatively good detangling cowash (As I Am Coconut Cowash). I have had to pull out and snip out a lot of knots with this.With that said, I have been using this product as a styler for after my hair is detangled. It really helps my hair twists and curls stay together and avoid frizz after I’ve put everything in place. I further amp it up by patting my twists with the Curling Gel Souffle from SheaMoisture. Surprisingly, those two products together are not sticky for me (granted, it’s snowing outside, so humidity is low). I also can get away with using just half an ounce or so of product per week. The product doesn’t flake up my hair and I’m in my second week w/o washing it out. I simply spritz and re-style (in my case, twists) every other night or so.However, I am not sure I will repurchase. If I am not careful to gently glide this product on small sections of detangled hair, I get single strand knots ALL OVER the place. It keeps the moisture on my extremely thin/fine strands, but because of its clumping nature, it is KNOT CITY if I am not careful. I would definitely test a friend’s if you have pen spring sized curls before getting this product.

Works Wonders

This worked even better than I thought. I used this with the Kinky curly curling custard and the tangle teaser. It worked really great and I will be purchasing more in the future.Tangle Teezer Original PinkCURLING CUSTARD STYLING GEL 8.0 oz By KINKY CURLY

Knot Today…No More KNOTS!

Wow, this stuff is amazing! I have never put on a detangler or conditioner that works as well as this product. To test it out, I tousled my hair around in the shower and I had plenty of knots. Knot Today, took them out so fast and the best thing is I had no pain while using my wide tooth comb. I used this as a leave in and it made my hair feel really moisturized, and my curls are well defined, soft and bouncy. It smells so nice and it’s somewhat pricey, but in my opinion, I think this product is worth the money. I will be using Knot Today daily.

Smells Great!

I tried this conditioner after reading the rave reviews on Amazon. However, I do not care for it, for my hair. It had a great smell, but left my hair pretty flaky. I tried using on a little, maybe a dime amount, and it still left my hair flaky. Cantu Shea butter is what I am using now.

Good….

This is a great smelling leave in conditioner. It seems to work well, but I don’t notice it to be too much better than any other moisturizing conditioner that I’ve used. I’ll probably buy it again, but I’m not obsessed…

Worked Great but not if you are allergic to Mango

We absolutely LOVE THE KC Custard. This detangler from KC is still very good but not awesome. It’s a little too thick and heavy for a detangler. JUST FYI: If you are allergic to Mango, you need to know that this product’s first ingredient is Mango fruit. Otherwise, I think it’s worth a try. And, even though it’s expensive, it’s really slippery. So you can use a quarter for a whole head of long curly hair.

Finally

Listen to all women of unruly kinky hair and I mean all women… This stuff is amazing. I finally used this to help with the kinky-ness of my natural hair and with my transition to natural. And I must say I made my own mix with about 2 tsp of castor and tea-tree oil and it was amazing and I also made a batch with the kimmaytube recipe, with only half a tbsp of aloe vera gel instead of a whole 2 tbsp. It came out wonderful and I am appreciative. I don’t do well with the knowing my texture n all but I do know my hair needs moisture and a detangler that is not going to add to dryness and rip my hair out. And so far this is it.FYI: instead of putting more money into purchasing online on amazon. Ricky’s NY online and in store has this for $12.99. Slightly less but less still. Hope that helped for all users ofKinky Curly Knot Today8 oz

Excellent conditioner that detangles well…

I did not give into the hype for quite a long time until I started looking for a leave-in that would work well withOlive Oil Eco Style Gelto my surprise this plays well. After I co-wash my hair in the morning I use a about a quarter size amount and work it through my hair. I let it set in for a bit while I put on my makeup and then layer the gel over it. No flakes and no whitening effect like some conditioners will give you when you layer gel over them. The product has a natural, earthy scent which is ok. It works and that’s what’s important.

Certainly not worth the price

I think this product has been over-hyped. I had seen it on nearly every natural hair site I checked out. When I got a chance to splurge and try it, I was sooooo disappointed. I still have almost a full bottle in the bottom of my basket of products. It’s okay as a leave-in/detangler, but it’s just not worthy of the price or hype. It left a residue in my hair and did nothing positive as far as I could see. I get better detangling results with a really good rinse-out conditioner (like Aussie Moist).

Kinky Curly Knot Today Conditioner

Love the product and how it makes my hair feel after I wash and condition it in the shower, very easy to comb through. Great detangler! I have type 2b curly hair that frizzes easily and when I use Kinky Curly Knot Today, I don’t have the static electricity or frizz I would have otherwise. I recommend this for any type of curly hair that frizzes. I also enjoy the convenience and ease of shopping through Amazon online as well as savings offered through Prime Membership and fast shipping.

Godsend for Natural Hair — Price too High on Amazon

I absolutely love this stuff for moisturizing and detangling my natural, kinky, curly hair. It took me forever to try this product because I was skeptical, but I wish I had tried it sooner! It makes my hair soft and silky, and cuts my detangling time in half. Usually my arms are tired after a detangling session, but not with this product! My wide tooth comb goes through with ease. I recommend this to anyone with kinky curly hair! BUT the price on Amazon stinks. It costs $11.99 at target; buy it there instead.

Knot for me

Perhaps the great reviews got my hopes up. I wasn’t quite sure about spending this much but the reviews were so good and my friend swore by it. Anyway, didn’t wow me. I have a lot of very thick natural African American hair. Typically I just use a whole lot of conditioner, detangling brush, and wide tooth comb to detangle my hair in the shower, which has been working great for me. I guess if it ain’t broke don’t fix it. I’ll go back to using the conditioners that I’d been using, which I can get for far less than $1.70/ounce. This was just not worth it for me.

I love it as a leave-in

I have super thick 4a/b hair. I love using this product as a leave-in after washing out the conditioner. I massage it into my hair as soon as I step out of the shower, and then I section it off. 10-30 minutes later I can comb through my hair (I wear it in twistouts) with ease. This is the best and only leave in I use. This product works on damp hair, but it works even better on wet hair- it also smells good (not very strong). Be careful not to use too much or else your hair will look white before it dries.

I gave this 4 stars, because it smelled good and feels good in my hair, but my hair is a little too thin for this conditioner! I think it only works better if you have thick hair!
