I really wanted to love this product because it isn't super expensive and I can buy it locally unfortunately I can only say it was okay. My hair is 3b/3c and responds well to hair milks and thick creams (not too thick). This product left my hair dull and very hard and it didnt detangle well at all. I guess this is just one of those products that everyone but me has good luck with grrr....
I really wanted to try this when I saw all the raving about this product. But I learned that not everything that other people love will work for me. I used this twice. With another product and by itself. The first time I tried it I used it with my Shea Moisture Moisturizer (which I love!) and it made my hair look like the life was sucked out of my hair. The color of my NATURAL COLERED hair looked dull and like the color of my hair was stripped. But it was my naturally colored hair which makes no sense. So I was thinking that those two products just can't work together. So I used it again by itself with water and the SAME THING HAPPENED! My hair was dull. It didn't feel moisturized. And my hair just didn't look at all what I wanted it to look like. I won't be using this again...
I bought this Leave-in along with 2 other brands to test on my hair. "Eden Bodyworks Coconut Shea" and "Karen's Body Beautiful Sweet Ambrosia". This one was just 'alright' for my hair which is mostly 3C and low porosity. It gave my hair slip, but it felt like gliding my hands on plastic because there was no softness. Based on all the good reviews I figure it's just not suited to my hair so I gave it away to a recently natural friend in the hopes that she'd have better luck. I'll be sticking with the Eden Bodyworks.
This is one of the best leave in conditioners I've used. I've only used it 3 times and it is becoming a staple. It's an effective detangler, and softens my hair like no other. I tried a new product that made my hair rough and hard. I threw this leave in on and it softened my hair and made my curls pop. A little of this goes a long way with my thick hair, because if I use too much product (as a styler) it can get crunchy but just scrunching a little coconut oil in after solves the problem. The only con is this product doesn't play/mix well with stylers from other brands. I'm not a gel fan but I find it plays better with milks & lighter moisturizers and not creams & butters.
I have bought this product 2x and I love it. Here are my thoughts: PROS - Detangles hair easily - Lots of slip (if hair is wet) - Simple smell - Ingredients I ACTUALLY understand - Moisturizing - Great use for LOC method CONS - Pricing is too high (based on where) for the amount - Finish it rather quickly HOW I USE IT In the Shower: - WASH my hair with a SULFATE FREE shampoo - Shea Moisture Tahitian Noni & Mono Shampoo - CONDITION my hair - EO Essentials Rosemary and Mint Conditioner Out of the shower (have hair soaking, dripping wet for best results - hint: the wetter, the better!): - APPLY - Kinky Curly Knot Today Leave-In Conditioner (for moisture) - STYLE (wether that's finger coiling, flexi rods, twist-out, etc. I finger coil) - Ecoco Eco Styler Gel Olive Oil - SCRUNCH OUTCOME Beautiful, bouncy, moisturized, and soft 3b curls with little to no frizz and hold. OR If I'm not in the mood to really have my curls defined I would do the same shower step and then: - APPLY - Kinky Curly Knot Today - APPLY - Dr. Bronner's Magic All-One Organic Virgin Coconut Oil I would also do the same thing if I want to finger detangle before a shower, I would just - obviously - skip the shower step, apply, 1/3 of a spray bottle with the leave-in and then distribute and then use the coconut oil.
Heard this product was like AMAZING. don't see what everyone is raving about. It's ok I prefer the giovanni leave it. Didn't feel as soft and nice.
Was afraid to try this product. Thought it would be too heavy for my fine hair. Decided to try it when I read it was glycerine free. I love it. I use it as a leave in from my ends up to mid way. Does a great job detangling. Greatly appreciate the directions provided for both thick course curls and loose wavy curls! Works well with styling products Jane Carter Solution Curl Defining Cream and Jessicurl Sprialicious.
A lot of curlies seem to really enjoy using KCKT, but I just couldn't roll with this conditioner. I LOVED the smell, and that it could be used as a styling product, but that was where the love for this product ended. I have fine, 3b/3c hair that is on the looser side. I figured after seeing so many glowing reviews that I would love it too and that it would replace my Shea Moisture Restorative Conditioner. NOPE. This styler is very greasy. It feels greasy on my hands and goes on my hair greasy too. It also did not play well with my favorite stylers, and that was the deal breaker for me. I will not give up stylers that have worked for 6+ months for a leave-in. If I found the perfect amount of product to use, I would be able to use this as a leave in and styler, but finding that perfect balance every time is challenging, and I would rather not have to go through that every time I wash and style my hair. If I got it right, I would have an amazing hair day. If I didn't....things weren't so good. These things quickly ended my relationship with Kinky Curly Knot Today. I gave my almost full bottle to my cousin who has thicker hair and a different texture.
Type 4 A&B with some C hair, fine and low density. Yeah....I figured having fine hair that isn't a nightmare to deal with would benefit from a product like this. It didn't do much for my hair. First of all, it doesnt play well with other brands. I do not do wash and goes, and I don't like gels at all, I like my hair soft and touchable, I don't care for hold, so there was no way in hell I was going to use this in conjunction with the KCCC, which is recommended. I know this leave-in is not the most moisturizing(even though it does provide enough softness to detangle), but even sealing it with an oil is completely moot, because a few hours later, my hair is dry. And if I add any kind of moisturizing butter, the product forms these nasty little white globs all over my hair; not cute. I don't want to sound ignorant but this particular hair product may not do so much for majority of ladies with type 4 hair, aka, very tight, coily,kinky,ziggly hair. So wouldn't recommend this for them. For looser hair types, yes. I guess I know some people I can give this to for free :/
this product is finnally the best hair product ive ever tried. i have 3b medium length hair , and i have usually frizzy hair after my wash n go but dont really mind the frizz , ive heard curly girls crave over this product so i went to target and just had to buy it . in the shower I applied quite an ample amount and was able to rake through my hair very easily , my curls sprung up . i left the product in and just cotton dried my hair a little out of the shower and then ran some coconut oil through my hair and let it dry. throughout the day my hair was super moisturized and zero to no friz . my hair was perfect and soft to the touch!! love!!
I love this product! I mix in a spray bottle with some water and use to finger detangle my 3c hair. I follow it the the sheamoisture hair milk and air dry, then VOILA! My hair feels super soft and I can go up to 3 days before having to reapply any more product. I also use it to detangle my daughter's hair! Great product for detangling, but need to add a moisturizer afterwards.
This is the best detangler ever! It works like magic. I will never use other brand unless I have to. I live in Peru and for me is very hard to get this type of products, but defenitly I'll manage to get this beauty.
This product wasn't the best leave in conditioner I've ever tried. It left my hair partially moisturised but i wasn't completely satisfied because of the hefty price tag. I want to give this product another chance but it is quite expensive. This leave in conditioner isn't all that!
I have used this product since I was natural (2011) at first I didn't know how to use it and there was a lot of residue in my hair, now I use it right out of the shower, hair soaking wet and just spread randomly through out my hair. This is a great detangle product.
This is by far the best product to add shine and moisture without extra shrinkage, but it does little to control frizz in super humid places. I add a little aloe vera to it, and this is definitely the product I keep going back to...but there's also something that keeps me looking for something better.
I absolutely love this light, moisturizing leave in. It detangles like a dream. I get better results when I apply the leave in while still in the shower. When I get out, I apply the kinky curly curling custard. Definitely a holy grail combo!!
One of my HOLY GRAIL products! After applying it I can detangle my hair in SECONDS! It's also very moisturizing and makes my hair soft and shiny. It's on the expensive side but it's worth it!
This was a nice product but the only thing is I found out SheaMoisture has one. It is basically the same thing. It didn't have the same moisture as SheaMoisture has.
Great product! Leaves my hair smooth and silky without weighing it down. Do not need to use a lot.
Love this product! However, I don't use this as a leave-in. I use it to pre-detangle my hair before I wash/co-wash. I've tried it as a leave-in and it wasn't bad, just not my favorite. It works amazingly to detangle though. I spritz my hair with water, apply the product, and begin to detangle in sections with a large paddle brush. Works every time! Definitely repurchasing.
I love this stuff! I have 3b hair that's color treated and really damaged from straightening my hair so much. I've recently decided to stop flat ironing my hair and go curly. I forgot how many tangles I get and how dry my hair is! This product is great! It detangled my hair in seconds after swimming in the ocean all day with my hair in a french braid! My hair feels so soft now. This also smells delicious!
I have very long 3b hair type. I love with this product! It has replaced all my other products and is now the only thing I need to put in my hair after I shower. It doesn't provide enough slip to detangle my hair without a little effort, but it does smooth the cuticle and relieve frizz. It leaves my curls well-defined, shiny and super soft and touchable all day. A little goes a long way, but it doesn't weigh my hair down if I use extra. It is definitely worth the price and I will be buying this for life as long as the formula doesn't change.
I purchased the basic three items from KinkyCurly (shampoo, conditioner, custard). I just wanted to see how the whole line would work since I've heard so many positive things about it. The conditioner didn't do that well with my hair. It instantly matted my hair together and and when I used it as a leave in, There were white flakes EVERYWHERE! But I will say that it has a pleasant smell (for those with severe pollen/fragrance allergies like myself) and it does not make my scalp itch like crazy. Not all products are for everyone, and this is just not for me. I gave all of the products to a friend who enjoys the line.
The best conditioner I have tried EVER! Some say it's expensive (11-12 bucks? c'mon lol) but for an all natural product you can't beat it. It melts right in and I can finger detangle immediately with no trouble. I won't go back to non-natural products. I like to know what is in them and know they won't build up and dry my hair. No beeswax or silicone for me thanks.
This product does pretty much what it says, but the price will keep from buying it again. I found that Miss Jessie's Leave-In Condish works far better on my hair. I would say it is just OK for its price.
Love the way my hair feels when using this product. Leaves hair soft and moisturized without weighing it down.
A lot of people complain about it not moisturizing their hair or leaving their hair frizz ect. This product is NOT a moisturizer or for styling by itself! It's specifically for detangling and being a leave-in. I have very (4b-4c) kinky hair and this product works perfect for me. I usually mix it with water, aloe vera juice, and oil and this product is able to last me almost a year. After detangling with this product, I usually apply my moisturizer (Shea moisture) and a very light gel for styling.
I love this leave in conditioner. It's one of the best I have used to date. When I first went natural I brought this because I wanted to know what all the hype was about. It didn't take me long to see why so many people love this conditioner. It softens, detangles, and smells good. Simply put....it does exatly what it says it does. What more could you ask for. It's a staple for sure. I recommend every natural try it at least once.
Excellent product for my very thick course 3a/b medium length color treated hair. Used it along with Curl Keeper. it kept my curls looking like 1st day curls all week which is great since I only wash my hair once a week. I purchased it at Whole Foods.
This is a magical elixir sent to us from the heavens. My hair is 3B, course, low-porosity, and it's been compared to anything from "horse's tail" to "burlap bag". I hated, hated my hair for many more years than I'll admit to, and I never dreamed my hair could look good to me. Right away this conditioner made my hair feel like an unfamiliar substance I'd never felt before. It's incredibly softening, yet it's weightless. My hair gets knots and tangles that I used to have to cut out, but this stuff slides through my hair like nothing else (and there's nothing I haven't tried, from jars of mayonnaise to pounds of Wella Kolestral). I still cannot believe how pliable and silky this makes my hair feel! I use this as a co-wash and a rinse, mostly, but during very hot weather it's amazing as a leave-in. My only complaint is the tiny bottle this comes in. Between my daughter and me, it doesn't last long at all. I need this by the gallon!
I'm always trying new products to find which ones my hair likes the best. My hair LOVES this leave in. Great for wash and go hair. Doesn't feel greasy or turn hard during the day. Best used on wet hair. I follow up with Set It Off Curl Boosting Gel. The only thing it tends to leave a build up in a few days. Too much gel and it will feel hard. Takes practice and patience - as with going natural; but the rewards are beautiful.
By far the best conditioner I have ever used on my natural hair. I will make sure to never run out of this product again.
When first applying this product, I didn't like it at all. It made my hair feel dry and it felt like it just sat on top of my hair. But as combed through, worked it in, and rewet my hair a little, it started to feel okay. Then I used the As I am Curling Jelly (which i love) and the Design essentials daily moisturizing lotion and it still looked the same as when I used the As I am Leave in Conditioner. But when it dried, I fell in love. My curls were well defined and soft, and were a little crunchy but not too crunchy. I love this leave in! The price is just ridiculous for 8 ounces.
Being a product junkie, I had to try this based on all the positive reviews. I purchased this about 3 months ago at target. I thought it was very overpriced considering the size. I went through it in about a 2 months (I only wash my hair once a week) and applied it only to completely wet hair. I love the smell and texture. It has good slip and never had a problem with residue. It did detangle my hair just fine and left my curls soft, but gave me little definition without applying gel. Overall it is a good product, but I don't think it is any better than a lot of cheaper leave-ins out there. I personally think Giovanni is better and it is half the price. Good leave in, but overly hyped.
This product is AWESOME to detangle with!!! However, afterwards, there is SERIOUS white residue in my hair even after it dries. Once dried, when I touch my hair, it's like dandruff falling all over my clothing.
ITS LEGIT!!! I have thin combo hair 2c-3a and add BE Mine conditioner to it and you have the super duo of detangling!!!!!!! Does not mess with your curls at all. I have usde detanglers that straightened my beautiful curls - not this one ladies oh no!!! Give it a try by itself or add it to your detangling arsinal because it does play with others very well.
Pros: This product is AMAZING for untangling my natural 4c thick long hair IF you add water to your hair first. It is moisturizing on my hair ONLY if i add water first, then add the product, then an oil after it. I like that you can use it on air dry strecthced hair, since it isn't water base it is less likely to revert. Cons: For my hair, using this product alone moisturizes my hair for a few hours, then it is back dry again. This product is not good for detangling dry hair(at least for me it wasn't). The price keeps going up every year and same amount of product(which isnt' much if you have as much hair as mine and it's 4c). Honestly I dont plan on buying this product often until the price is lowered or it's on sale.
I've been using this product for about 3 months now and I like it! It's light and when used by itself it does not weigh my hair down. It leaves my hair temporarily moisturized and my curls are always super defined. However there are some things that I do not like about it. The number one thing is the smell. I'm a huge stickler when it comes to smells. I either love it or hate it. With this... I hate it. It has a pineapple fruity kind of smell. It's really strong to me. Too strong to me. I makes me sort of queezy just smelling it while I am applying it to my hair. Thankfully, it does not linger. The second problem that I have with this product is that the moisture does not last very long on my hair. Even if I use the LCO method, which I always do, it still never lasts more than several hours. Even then I have to use another product over it to make it last that long and since my hair is easily weighed down, and gets build up easily, all together, that is just too much product on my hair. Overall, I really like this product but, I do not think I will continue to use it. The search begins for something new.
I bought this recently because of all the hype about it. The bottle threw me off at first because it seemed to not have much in it. I have a lot of hair, so I thought this would only last me about a few days. However, I decided to buy it anyways. Oh my goodness, after using this my hair curled up more and was so soft. I only have to put a little drop on a section of hair when I split it into two sections. I have only had this for a month and it looked like a barely have used any.I have been doing the LOC method recently with this and my hair looks so much better now.
Tried this product last year...and didn't like it. A year later my hair loves it! Sometimes products aren't for you at first but as your hair changes you grow to love it. I believe that's what happened in my case. 5 stars!
I have mixed hair textures a range of 3b to 4b all over my head. When I first staring using this product it worked wonders, my hair was soft and every curl was defined through the gel of my was and go. After about 2-3 weeks the product stopped working on hair. So in the regard of it worked great but for how long I don't know.
What can I say that hasn't already been said about this leave in!! It has amazing slip, detangling was a joke. I put some coconut oil on top of this and my hair stays moisturized all days. Will definitely repurchase. So mad at myself that I tried this super late.
This is a good product to have...this along with the kinky curly custard makes for a good hair day.
Finally got round to trying the KCKT.... The results were amazing!! I am a skeptic when it comes to hair products because I have tried many but nine seemed to really work for me. This leave in works... My hair is soft and my fingers glide through effortlessly and my hair hair stayed soft for three days, which has never happened before. I love it a d I love my hair.
This product dried out my 4c hair. It left my hair feeling like hay. It didn't make my detangling process easy either. Waste of money.
Hair stat : 3c/4a, medium porosity, fine strands, high density Lightweight, light and pleasant smell, and I like the consistency. Love the way my hair is when I apply the product. My problems with it : It doesn't detangle well. My hair doesn't stay moisturized long enough contrary to my HG (Shea Moisture Restorative Conditioner). It is not water-based. I only use it if I want to refresh my curls and kinks after a couple of days of styling. My hair doesn't shrink with it (due to the fact that it is not water-based)
Since going curly girl, this is the only leave in I use in my hair! It has great slip and leaves my hair really soft. A little goes a long way though so the money is spent is well worth it!
I love this product! It is moisturizing without being heavy or greasy. Plus, it is light weight, so those who have fine hair don't have to worry about their strands being weighed down. I only use about a dime size amount; that's all I need (and I'm pretty heavy handed!). As for its detangling abilities, I'm not so sure. I have never tried to detangle my hair with it. Only con is the bottle is a tad too small and the price is a tad to large, but hey, if it works, it works!
Great leave in. The best detangler. Great moisturizer and refresher for second and third day hair. Pricey but worth it seeing as it can be used under many different styling products and a necessity if used under the Curling Custard. A tad pricey but multi functioning
After debating between this and another leave in conditioner, I decided to go with this. Boy was that the wrong decision. I dislike this product sooo much. When I applied this to my hair it felt super dry. After reading the reviews I was sure I had made the right decision. NOT THE CASE AT ALL!!
Not quite the miracle I was expecting, but it sure helps detangle! I found that I have to spray her hair real well, put that on, leave it set for a bit...spray with more water, then it's easier to comb. Still a major pain in the butt, but with knot today there are less tears. Especially when used in conjunction with the kinky curly shampoo! I will keep buying until I find some miracle!!
I have 3c hair. I typically use Aubrey Organics Rose conditioner to detangle. However, I really was using so much of it that I finally decided to buy a detangler. This product made my hair worse. It dryed it out and did nothing for detangling, it actually matted it up. I think it is the citric acid and BTMS in it. The only thing I like about it is the clever name.
I really love this leave in. It's light weight and, like all of Kinky Curly's products, doesn't contain any heavy or buildable ingredients. It's also natural and organic. My hair gets build up easily so I prefer simple products like this. Lately I have been using it more as a RO while leaving a little in my hair and I think that works better for me. When I use this as a RO along with the Come Clean I get the best curls of my life because the CC cleanses without build up and the Knot Today moisturizes without weighing my hair down. Oh, and the slip is crazy good. When I'm using it as a detangler I only need less than a pea size for my whole head. I also add a small drop of this to my gelatin protein treatment to help it slide through my hair. Works amazingly.
I love this leave-in. It's the first leave-in I ever used and the only one I love! It detangles my hair and it's light. It has a good slip to it as well! I mostly use this in a mix with aloe vera juice, avocado oil, jojoba oil, and R&B moisturizer. All this together leaves my hair so moisturized! This is definitely a staple product of mine! I would highly recommend this product!
This product is amazing!! I haven't tried anything else because it works wonders for my hair when I'm untangling it, its light and gives enough slip for my very thick coily hair.
I absolutely love this product! I've found that my hair really needs moisture during the winter, but too much will weigh down my delicate waves. With this product, I'm able to wash my hair every other day, where I had to wash it every day when I was using my old leave-in. From using this and Kinky Curly Spiral Spritz, I've found that I get bouncy waves with a few ringlets, something that I could NEVER get before! The knots that are in my hair just melt away after using this product. I HIGHLY recommend!
i love this! it moisturized my waves and curls and did not weigh it down!!! it smells amazing and reduced frizz. it made it super easy to detangle too, i will repurchase
This is my favorite leave-in. It's the only leave-in conditioner that keep my hair from getting frizzy. It also makes my hair super shiny, and I don't need to use a lot. Too bad I can't find this in Norway.
Best leave-in conditioner I have EVER tried. No frizz, just shine and curls. And just a bit is enough!
This is the best leave in conditioner ever!!!! I can use it as a leave in with nothing else, or with other products. It also works well as a rinse out conditioner too. This does not weigh down fine curls. It's super moisturizing and lightweight.
The best! So good I'm afraid to run out! Smells like marshmallows! Mixes well with other products like gel. Super slippery and adds incredible shine! Detangling is bliss with the help of this!
Love this stuff !! I use this on freshly washed hair then add some coconut oil and that's it.
I Was hoping this would give me the beyond amazing results I'd been hearing/reading about. It's alright to me, definitely could find a cheaper, better alternative for this. I have to give credit to the slip though it was great!
I had bought this product because I read an article that said it was also good for naturally curly hair of toddlers, regardless of skin color or hair type. While it does help, it's not the miracle I was hoping for.
I just don't like this leave in. My hair felt coated and it didn't play well with my oyin hair dew. It was nasty and thick like. I tried giovanni direct leave in with oyin hair dew and my hair felt amazing. I returned it again to whole foods I will never buy again. I don't know why I tried it again. I guess I wanted my hair to love it but it was not having it. My hair is fine and it doesn't tangle to much but it definitley needs a moisturizing leave in. Kckt is not the one for me. I will stick to oyin hair dew and giovanni direct leave In.
I tried this conditioner the second time and must say it's pretty decent. I bought it again bcus I didn't give it a fair try the 1st time. But oh well we all make mistakes. Will buy again
I've been natural for over 1 year now, and I'm surprised that it took me so long to pick one of these up. It's winter now, so I think this would be a better product for the summer because it's so light and refreshing, but I might use it for a little longer anyway because it's very forgiving on my thick hair and smells fantastic! It's a good detangler and a pretty solid leave-in that won't weigh you down. If you haven't tried it yet, I would pick one up soon. My hair is thick but I like to use lighter products on it so it is softer and bouncier.
All I can say is WOW. I think I've found my HG! I tried this on my hair this morning prior to using my Elucence MBC and my hair detangled like butter (if that's even a correct metaphor). It's a little light but that's PERFECT for my fine hair: My curls sucked it right up and gave my hair some nice clumping. It didn't weigh it down either when I used it as a LI. It's not for everyone, and the smell is something you might have to get used to (I personally love the smell, it's sweet but since there's mango in it, it smells a little fruity/citrusy), but other than that, it's an AMAZING product. It made my hair super soft and defined my curls very nicely after applying Kinky Curly Curling Custard to it. For all of you complaining about it's size, they sell a 12oz bottle at Target for about $12. Much better than only getting 8oz for $12. I will definitely buy again! It might become my new staple. :-)
This stuff is like the best leave-in conditioner I've ever tried. It made my hair incredibly soft and within one use my thick 3c curls sucked it all up. The only problem I have is that I wish it came in a larger bottle, then it would be my staple product.
I absolutely LOVE Kinky Curly Knot Today! It has definitely lived up to my expectations! It is lightweight for my fine but medium thick to thick curls 3b/3c curls. I have used it twice since buying it over a month ago. It is the best detangler! I don't have to use much for my hair. It makes my curls pop and moisturizes my hair! It also makes my hair soft! This has become a staple of mine!
this is a really good product it always helps me detangle my hair the price is right because it is so good. i give it a 4 because i think there is one out there that can make my 4a hair even softer. im keep looking.
I love love love this. HG leave in, neutral product, plays well with others, all seasons, delivers great moisture and the best slip in any product ive ever tried (aside from CJ products). i have consistently used this for the past 2 1/2 yrs. a little goes a long way. i have BSL hair and use no more than a quarter size for all of my hair and then follow the LOC method. i prefer to use this when my hair is twisted or braided vs a wash and go. my hair will lose moisture quicker with a WnG. this is also great when retwisting on dry hair without adding product buildup. even works well on my 6yr olds kinky curly baby hair. my hair: low-med porosity,curly kinky corkscrews, recently color treated
I just got this today, after co-washing my hair I applied this. Love the smell and how soft it makes my hair. My curls are bouncy and the frizz is gone. I also used the KCCC. I will definitely be adding this to my go to products.
One of the best leave ins out there, works well with other styling products, it leaves my curls so bouncy and soft.
I have been eyeing this product for the longest after hearing so many positive reviews about this product. I finally broke down and purchased it the smell and texture of this product is wonderful. I moistened my hair with water and then applied my comb slid through my hair like butter amazing! Hydrated my curls and gave them great definition will def be one on my go to purchases!
I finally tried this leave in after reading so many good reviews and wanting to for a long time. I really liked this product a lot. My hair doesn't normally tangle bad, but if I do have any this definitely gets rid of them. It left my hair feeling soft and I believe it eliminated some frizz. The smell is very nice. This works really well with the KKCC. It is also good for touch ups and revitalizing my curls. I will definitely be repurchasing this.
Very good product.Eventhough my hair is still short after 3 months of completely shaving it,it leaves my coilys smooth.
I used this on my transitioning hair and it was a mess. It tangled my hair and made it mat up. I returned the bottle to the store. I will not use this product again.
Did nothing for my hair. Made it feel dry and brittle. Returned it to whole foods today. Will never purchase again. Sticking to oyin products. Oyin products are the best.
I'm still not sure about this product. When I put it in my hair it feels weird. Once it's wash day I noticed the product washed out. It seems like my hair didn't absorb it and I have high porosity. Barely moisturized. Was really hoping my picky hair would love this lol. BUT it did give good slip.
A must have for my 3a wavy curly hair (think Debra Messing). Sometimes I use it in the shower AFTER I shampoo and use my regular conditioner. Why use it after my reg conditioner? Cause I have the type of hair that instantly mattes and tangles when water hits it (like if I went swimming or got caught in a downpour). I don't have the type of hair that looks sexy when wet! Also, I shampoo ever other day ... by the time I wash it, there are plenty of tangles. So after I condition, I then use Knot Today + a large tooth pick to de-tangle. Works great! When using it after my shower, I use a nickel size amount on my waist length hair -scrunching it in on the lower half, to the ends. Then I manipulate with my fingers where I want my hair to go. Next, I use Redken Fresh Curls Spring Mousse and let air dry. On day two, I just use a little of Rusk Wired Flexible Styling Creme to refresh and add body (this gives sexy body used this way). What else do I like to pair with Knot Today? Kinky Curly Curling Custard!
3c/4a this is the bessst moisturizer out there! its kind of expensive ya but it gets the job done with a small amount
4a / 4b hair. I've been natural for 5+ years. This is a great product, I think, one of the best I've used for leave-in and detangler. It absolutely detangled my hair, which is exciting. When I was finger combing the detangler into my hair, I didn't experience a lot of hair loss, which is what I get when I'm not using a detangler. Smelly sort of fruity, like coconut. I also didn't have to use too much, and it left my hair bouncy and soft. I would use again.
This the best moisturizers have ever used. I don't us it on soak and wet hair as they suggest, but I still get awesome results. Only down sides is the price, and I used this alone without any other product and I leaves a white film on my hair, even if I use very little and clarify really really well with the shampoo from the Kinky Curly line. But this enhances my other products and the only reason I stopped using it was because of the price tag, but I might just have to cough up the extra money because this works so great.
This is the one of the few hair products I have bought more than once. I like having it on hand all the time. I don't love the smell but it doesn't last. I'm always amazed at how instantly it detangles my 3B hair. I typically leave it on as my only styler and it works pretty well on all but the most humid days. My hair is soft to the touch once it dries. I recommended this to a man who told me his little girl had curly hair that got so tangled they had to cut some off, and he told me it really worked for her, too.
I tried this product because everyone's talking about how perfect it is for 3A curls. I use it as my first conditioner, not my leave in. It really helps my curls shine and gain a lot of life back, however I feel like I have to use a LOT to fully cover my hair. And for the price, that kind of worries me. That's why I gave it 4 curls instead of 5. I'd definitely recommend this to any curlies who have volume issues though!
This is the BEST leave-in conditioner for my 4b/c hair. It moisturize, conditions and softens. I had to stack up on CM bday sale15% off plus free S&H (WOW!) I do not want to run out!!
My HG (holy grail) product! I use this as my leave-in and add a gel on top.. either Curly Kinks Coil Jam, Donna Marie Gelly or whatever I am feeling that day. I mix this with water to refresh my hair, detangle and re-define my 3b curls (that get soo tangley and friggy). I usually do wash-n-gos, this product is perfect for me.
I have 4a and c hair and it leaves my hair so soft when i apply to sopping wet hair. I detangle with my tangle teezer and its aweeesome!
I bought it last summer at iherb.com because of the cheap shippings for Switzerland, i really was impressed by the weird, light texture, the kind of tropical fruits smell and the detangling ! Lastly i was out of Oyin Handmade Hair Dew, Karen's Body beautiful leave in & Camill Rose naturals milky conditioner so i decided to rediscover the bottle of KCKT i diuleted with water and i'm so surprised of how it is moisturizing and detangling, i'm a 3C-4A mix, i manage to detangle in 5min day&night my hair which is a major plus for time saving and future knots. I'm definitely going to restock it via iherb.com,it's a lifesaver :) i use pure aloe vera juice to seal KCKT and argan oil on my ends, i have less knots and more moisture than when i used to do the LOC method with oil.
This Leave-in/Detangler does just what it says! My hair loves this and it truly removes the kinks from hair while leaving my hair soft and easy to manage. I have extremely coarse hair that I have been told is a 4B type, I just know my hair is very thick and hard to manage without the right leave-in and/or detangler. KCKT is perfect for my hair and although I use other items, it is still my go-to when detangling and cowashing.
I have more 3 B hair (but çan't seem to change the profile). Pros: amazing detangler, best I tried so far and I am a product junkie, light smell, nice shine if you use it as LI, works fab with KCCC Cons: A little to gellish for my like and not sure how nurturing it is for my dry hair. Conclusion: yes I would buy it again as it's great to have on stock for those days when your hair is completly tangled up and nothing seems to help getting the knots out of your hair. But will stick to other conditioners for nurturing my hair. I would give it 4 and half stars if possible but not 5.
This is a fantastic leave-in. It is a little light, so I must use with a heavier styler or oil. If it were a little heavier it would be 5 starts.
Simply amazing. Detangling with this is like a hot knife going through butter. Incredible slip and moisture throughout the day. I also use this as a rinse out conditioner on the top part of my hair because I don't like synthetic products on my scalp. Works wonders. Every curly should give this a try.
I'm not a big "leave-in' person but I am VERY happy with this product! I like the "gel-like" consistancy and the amount of slip it gives my hair. It was easy to apply and even though the bottle says to use generously, a little goes a long way in my hair. My curls were well deifned (before applying a styler) and still felt really soft the next day. I do plan to play around with this product & try using it a couple different ways but I believe this might be a HG product for me!
I love this product. It really puts a slip on the hair and it doesn't make it hard. It makes it silky.
Love this stuff. Def a hg product for me. Great slip, smells good, and is versatile. Beware of mixing this product with other products, you will definitely be able to tell what products mix well with it and what products do not. I use this as a leave-in conditioner and seal it with organic coconut oil. And also use it as a conditioner when washing as well. Will continue to use for a long time. Hair type 3c/4a
This product is awesome at detangling. I don't even have to use a lot of it in my hair to get all of the tangles out. A little goes a long way for me. I don't know if I'll repurchase it though, because a cheap conditioner (vo5, suave) can do the same thing as this, and I'll get more of the product for a better price. But either way, still a great product!
I use this product a bit untraditionally, but it works better this way than using it for my wash & go's, twists, and as a refresher. I mix it with water in a spray bottle and use it as a refresher. It works well. As a leave - in for a wash & go, I don't really think it works too well with my hair type. After it has completely air dried, I find that my hair isn't as moisturized as I'd like it to be.
I absolutely love this leave-in conditioner. It is very lightweight and always keeps my hair soft and tangle free.
I will never be without this product. It smells wonderful, I love the gel texture, it's moisturizing, protein-free. I sometimes use this alone for sort of a wavy wash and go. This is my staple leave-in and styler/pre-styler. I always come back to this.
I like this under the Kinky Curly Curling Custard, BUT it does nothing for my hair by itself. It doesn't have enough slip to detangle my hair, and it isn't moisturizing enough. It takes forever to dry too. If you use too much to try to make it more moisturizing, you will end up with lots of white flakes.
I love this product! It smells great, and isn't too heavy for my Type 2C curls. I use the KC Come Clean shampoo, then this product every 2-3 days. I use KCC also when I want to wear my hair down. When I want less definition, I just use KCC KT and a bit of shine spray and I'm good.
Love this product. My hair doesn't tangle that much now-a-days since I have short hair. But the leave in conditioner is amazing!! Love it!!
This is the best leave in conditioner I've ever tried. I continue to use it, regardless of the other products i'm using. It has great slip and if you mix it with water when you're getting a little low, it still works great. Love this!
I got this product because of all of the high reviews but I don't like it in my hair. It doesn't detangle or moisturize at all. I gave it a two because it does work a little in my babies hair but it doesn't take much for her hair.
No more tangles! My hair doesn't break when I comb through it in the shower or after a shower. I love this as a rinse out and as a leave-in conditioner! I only need to use a nickel or quarter size amount because my hair is very health. I have fine 2b/2c hair with low porosity. I love Kinky-Curly Knot Today! It is so worth the price. I will be buying this again! I am not allergic to anything in the ingredients and I do not have to worry about them giving me cancer.
It really just melts my tangles and knots right out of my head! Works wonderful when I use it with coconut oil and twist-out/braid-outs. Will not repurchase as this product is too pricey;/
This product worked better while I was transitioning. Perhaps I need to doctor it up a bit with some oils and maybe some aloe vera juice, but it totally misses the mark as is. It adds no moisture whatsoever. I've used it to make the Kimmaytube conditioner and that was the best use I've gotten out of it. I've used it with and without the Curling Custard and it causes major shinkage...the two paired together make for really shruken hair. I love the ingredients and the price isnt horrible in comparison to some of the other natural products I've purchased. I'll keep trying to figure out how best to use this until its gone. I may end up using this strictly for the Kimmaytube recipe (shrugs shoulders and hits submit)!
You know how they say: "Do you want the bad news or good news first?" Well this review is that kind of situation. I will give the bad news first. Don't claim that this product is a leave-in when there are no fatty alcohols to give this product the agent to truly correspond with moisturizing the hair. HOWEVER, straight to the good news this is an excellent detangler- it was what I used during my shower process. It was nice knowing I didn't need to worry about a detangler for that is the most difficult in my wash process. So I will give all my curl ratings to the fact that it detangles well. It does lose a few curls because it isn't really a leave-in. In a way you are paying $12 for a detangler which I can get cheaper. I was hoping that pairing this with the KCCC it would give me ultimate results, but no. Overall, great detangler, but nothing poridust-wise for a true 'leave-in.'
I absolutely LOVE this product it smells good, its a staple for me I do not have to use it all the time but when I do my detangling I love this product it has slip and it moisturizes. Worth the price and it last for a while as long as u take good care of your your hair.
Love this conditioner, but could never use it alone (much MUCH too thin). It's the perfect base for my leave-in conditioner though (kimmaytube), and I've been using it for years with awesome results!
Not much slip but it leaves my hair moisturized. I always follow it up with kccc. My curls looooooove it.
I love this product! It's a great base, I usually apply after the shower before I gel & diffuse. I also use it to touch up my tired curls through out week, it helps moisturize them before I touch up with a light gel. I love that it doesn't produce a lot of product build up, because I only wash my hair once a week, maybe twice at the most!
This doesn't work for me at all. It makes my hair a flyaway, cottonball mess. Maybe it is too much moisture for my hair. Disappointing.
Great leave-in. Perfect foundation for applying product on top. It also works watered down as a curl refreasher. Great product for the price:)
OMG. hated it. Was in a bind--my hair was. I had just finished washing out and dc after a full head henna and nothing appeared to give me any slip. I tried my curl junkie rehab, my bee mine dc, my hair was a tangled, knotted, snarly, 3c, 4a and I don't know what the hey you are 4z maybe mess! Heard good things about kknt but never used it because until that henna, I never had such a tangle. Normally, my hair can detangle with just a bit of water--add condish and combs, barrettes my hands just slide through my hair--I fact, water straightens my hair for a hot minute (it curls back as it dries) but today.. I seriously, I mean seriously considered a big chop and my hair is APL! only the edges and nape remained snarl free, it looked like after my steam and dc my hair had dreaded into huge clumps! I put that kknt on and it just soaked in, put more on..nothing, doused my head in the shower--nothing--half a bottle later (I was desperate) NOTHING. Know what finally got things moving? 1/4 inch sections and cantu butter mixed with grapeseed oil, I slowly teased my hair apart. took me over 2 hours! Now with a bit of Oyin dew and a lot of Qhemet amla and olive oil the "hot mess" is finally softening up to the lush hair that I normally have. As for the KKNT? No thank you--it failed me when I needed it to prove itself the most, maybe it works on hair that does not actually need real detangling? Oh well, back to the back of the cabinet for this stuff...not for me!
I have 3B hair and I absolutely LOVE this product. This is the best thing that's happened to my hair since I went natural. It helps maintain my curls for a week straight without washing and I only use it once a week after I wash my hair and I allow the mist from the shower to reactivate it daily.
I LOVE this stuff! It adds just the right amount of weight to my hair! It glides on and when you run you fingers through your hair, it distributes easily and makes detangling a BREEZE ||| I apply it to sopping wet hair, shake/pat away the excess water, and use a diffuser to dry my scalp ||| What I didn't like is the lack of shine imparted, so I take JUST a dollop of its partnering KCCC and gently pat/smooth that over the exposed areas. Too much KCCC and your hold will be too hard. The two products work perfectly together.
I am so disappointed. I decided to give this conditioner a chance because I ran out of my regular conditioner, Oyin's Honey Hemp Conditioner. Since Knot Today has such glowing reviews and made with natural ingrediants, I figured it would be comparable to the Honey Hemp. I was sooo wrong. When using Honey Hemp, my hair is instantly softened and detangling is a breeze. When I rinse Honey Hemp out of my hair, my hair is still soft and lightly moisturized. This Knot Today stuff did nothing. I mean NOTHING. It did not soften, nor did it detangle my hair. Maybe this works better with a different hair texture than mine (4a). Needless to say, I will not be purchasing this product again.
I have a mixture of 3B/3C curls and this just doesn't work for me. I used this as a leave-in and at first i makes my curls feel so moisturized but after my hair dries I notice my hair turns out to be poofy and frizzy. I have very COARSE hair so I'm thinking maybe this leave-in is just too lightweight for my hair? For girls like me, I recommend you don't use this product alone or try out Shea Moisture Curl Enchancing Smoothie- which, in my opinion, is better for frizz and hold.
Loves the feel of this conditioner in my hair with intial application. It is a great detangler, but I am not sure if it works for me as a moisturizer. I usually have to apply another leave in for my hair to stay moisturize.
Love this product! Its the best leave in conditioner I have ever used on my hair. My hair is so easy to comb through after using this product and it smells great too!
I'm a 2c and my hair LOVES this! I've been using it about 2 months. It literally eliminates all the knots in my hair. I used to have to re-wet and comb out knots for second and third day hair (resulting in stringy curls). I can now just lightly spritz with water and apply a dime sized amount of KCKT and finger style the few knots out. It's just moisturizing enough. My hair can't handle too much so this is perfect.
Great leave in for everyday use. Doesn't leave hair soaking wet, which I love. Smells great.
My favorite everyday product. This has great slip, smells sweetly floral, and isn't too heavy. I have fine hair so I need to be careful of my hair feeling weighed down. This never fails me. It works fabulously with whatever gel or custard I use, but I do find the best results when used with other Kinky Curly products. I also use this on my 3 year old son who has baby fine curls.
This is a HG product for my daughter and I! My teen age daughter has really thick 3a-3b hair that is fine, so it tangles like crazy. Knot today lives up to its name and no other product or conditioner has ever worked as well using so little. My daughters hair is very healthy as I was aware enough by the time I had her to never ever put any of the curly no-no ingredients in her hair and never washed her hair daily when she was little. She has learned proper care for her curls and to date her hair has never been touched by a harmful ingredient. Given that, this is the ONLY product she uses in her hair and she has shiny (yes, actually shiny) beautiful curls that do not frizz even here in Florida. I on the other hand, have mostly 3b curls (with some 3a and 3c on different parts of my head) but my hair is more of a medium texture and not even half as thick as my daughters hair (it was before I had kids, but that is another story) and it works like a charm for me as well. What I love about it most is that for me, it plays nicely with other products. During the winter I use this with the kcc and have the most beautiful results for my cork screw curls I have ever had in my life. I layer it both under kcc, and over for 2nd and 3rd day hair. Works like a charm and leaves my hair sooooooo soft. (soft like I have the healthiest hair in the world! even my husband cant keep his hands off it when I use this combo, lol) During the summer the kcc does not have enough frizz control for me, but I still use the knot today year round in the exact same way...under my gel, and over my gel for 2nd and 3rd day hair. This is a staple in my house. My daughter does go through this product faster than I do (because she has so much hair) but 3 bottles last us a couple months even still. It is not super moisturizing, so I do not use this as a conditioner in the shower. We use it as a leave-in to remove tangles with ease and create beautiful curl clumping and spirals on wet hair, and to smooth out frizz on dry hair 2nd/3rd day. (leaving our spirals intact) We have been using this for a couple years now and I will never be caught without a bottle!
It's not perfect, but nothing I've found detangles better than this product. (And the slip is out of this world!!) The downside is that it's not very moisturizing. At all. But I have low porosity (and med-coarse-ish!) hair that doesn't really lose that much moisture, so most of the time this doesn't bother me much. It's really a game with this product, which I'm not entirely sure how to win every time I use it. Some magical amount of this plus water makes my hair great. Same thing applies when I use gel with it (note that I don't use, and have never used KCCC). Unfortunately, when I get this mixture wrong, my hair turns out dry, and non-clumpy. Go figure. I have to give this product more than a 3/5 though, because I've gotten several great hair days from it.
This is the best detangler I've used. I don't care for the tropical smell, but that's just me. For me, a Di e size dollop on wet hair is the perfect amount for great slip and light moisture. Love it!
4a. I love how available Kinky Curly products are, If you have a local Target I assure you it's there. I recommend this product to anyone who loves moisturizing & good smelling products.
I swear, this stuff melts through knots like a hot knife melts butter! It's especially helpful around my nape and edges, where my coils kinda wind around each other after, well, /anything/ happens to them there. The consistency felt odd to me at first, but it still worked excellently. The smell isn't half bad either! I recommend everyone using it for their own snarled knots.
This product was great as a detangler, it's a good moisturizer, but my hair just hates it. Iv'e tried using more, using less, under KCCC, under re:coil. Iv'e used the whole bottle. Not only does it take my hair 9 hours to dry, it gives great curls for about 4 hours and then I have a limp mess.Honestly I've had better luck using bee mine daily conditioner under KCCC, it dries faster, gives better definition, and gives 3 day hair. KCKT has great ingredients, I admit I'm baffled by my hairs obvious animosity towards this leave in.
Not impressed. Just used what was left to detangle my hair before washing this week. This product is not thick enough for my hair to absorb so I did not like it as a detangler. Not enough slippage. I could not detangle my hair thorough enough, and had to detangle again in the shower with Herbal Essence's Hello Hydration. A lot of hair shed in the process. :-/ I bought this product last summer as a leave-in and it left my hair dry. Needless to say, I will not be using this product again. It does not do well as a detangler or leave-in.
This stuff is boss, I don't have to use my comb anymore, just my fingers to detangle. I can use this as my leave in for wash n go's also.
I'm kind of "meh" about Knot Today. I bought the entire KC line of products (shampoo, leave-in, KCCC) because I was told that you had to use them together for them to work. I disagree with that. I love the custard but this conditioner was just so-so. While it did leave my hair soft and was a GREAT detangler, it wasn't moisturizing enough for my hair - my curls feel a bit thirsty after putting it on, so I have to add some moisture using other products. But this conditioner doesn't really seem to like to play with other products, plus I felt like I was just weighing down my hair with a bunch of product. It left a sort of filmy feeling to my hair that I didn't like. So I don't use it too much; the only time that I did use it recently was to put some on before I undid some braids, which it was great for because it has excellent slip.
Knot Today is a great detangler for my 3b/3a, low porosity curls. It worked well on dry hair, but better on wet hair. However, it didn't do much for me as a leave-in. I was still in need of moisture after using this product. I am a big fan of the simple list of ingredients.
This stuff is amazing. It is a great detangler and as soon as I put it on my hair, I feel it working. My hair is instantly softer and smoother. It also does not get flaky when you put a gel on top of it. I'm so glad that I finally decided to buy it.
this is an okay leave in conditioner, it did define my curls and my hair was soft but it did dry out towards the end of the work day. Overall I am pleased with the results and I will use again.
This is the best leave-in/detangler that I have tried thus far. I really one have one complaint; I don't think that it is moisturizing enough and my hair needs a lot of moisture. So, I mix it with my Moisture Lock w/ Shea Butter by Inflúance to get the hydration that I need but I still love the product.
After reading some of the reviews, I decided to give the product a try. My normal wash-n-go had so much shrinkage I could not believe it. Needless to say, I tried it again...this time doing hair twist with the product on only one side of my head. When I took my twist down I had so much frizz it was ridiculous. What works for one, doesn't work for all.
This product is amazing! It's wonderful for detangling and it works wonders on my daughters 4a hair. This is a product I always always have in my house!
One of the best leave-ins I have tried!!! And ive tried a lot.... my hair really responds to the natural ingredients. I have a mix between 3b/3c/4a curls and have to fight frizz everyday! I use this to smooth out my frizz before a heavy shea butter cream and I have moisture all day!!!! <3 this!!! worth the $$
this stuff is just the right price in my opinion . it smells good and I use it as my leave in and I seal w / oyin handmade burnt sugar pomade which smells unbelievable . my hair stays soft supple and moisturized with only the use of water as a daily moisturizer . I only apply it once until the next wash day . this is an AMAZING leave in . and it keeps your hair from forming knots and tangles if kept in a stretched , tamed state .
Hair type: mixed, 3C/4A. Hands down, THE BEST. Very light, no crunch, doesn't weigh hair down, so you still have volume. LOVE THIS.
So I have actually never used this as a rinse out or a detangler in the shower but I'm sure it's fantastic because of its slip. I've always used it as a leave in, and there is where it excels for me. This product is light and smooth and glides effortlessly over your curls. I've tried it with several gels and it's always played nicely (no flakes or frizz) although it probably does pair best with the curling custard because they're formulated to go together. Like the curling custard it has a light pleasant scent that doesn't linger and it makes your hair feel very healthy and soft! Love, love, love it! (And again, a little goes a long way. I've had it three months and it's maybe 30% gone.)
The 1st time I tried this product it wowed me: it melts away tangles, it's light, it really works, a conditioner that really works! That was about 2 1/2 yrs ago when I had been transitioning for about 6 months and was just learning how to handle my hair. It smells fruity, like Let's Jam the original version from way back in the 90's to slick edges down--I don't know if they sell this exact version anymore-am I the only who thinks this? The consistency is a viscous liquid, very slippery and not thick or pasty like at all. It is pricey, but worth it because it works miraculously and the ingredients are superb. This product is available on the ground in stores like Target (which I have seen it going for $5, I got 2 or 3 bottles at that price and I know I will use them because this is a high-quality product you can use as a leave-in conditioner, regular rinse out conditioner to use in the shower, and I may try it as a deep treatment with my steamer, who knows. Happy Hair! P.S. The only true drawback with this product may be my personal issue, but I feel people experience it and don't realize it. The product doesn't work as good when you use it continuously; I usually cycle through rinse-out conditioners, leave-in conditioners every wash time so I can get that "just like the first time detangling experience" for my tightly curly, dense 4a/4b hair and to satisfy my product junkism! I have tried a few other leave-in conditioners: SheaMoisture curly (reddish packaging) hair lotion, Darcy's smoothing coco bean cream didn't have enough slip to keep my hair from tangling as I was trying to apply my final styling product gel. I love Paul Mitchell's the conditioner b/c it is available on the ground and I rotate it with KCKT and CurlJunkie Smoothing lotion(4stars) leave-in conditioner.
This was my first holy grail product. It takes the bulk out of your hair just like the curl custard. I don't have anything bad to say about it. I use it with Oyin burnt sugar pomade for my wash n go.
First my hair type: Mix of 2b (top) 3a (bottom) Bleach blond just past shoulder length fine hair very dry. Has multiple uses, Great to use in the shower as a conditioner & as a leave in outside of the shower, love the smell love the feel of my hair love that it's the most natural product I could find. Will definitely become a regular user of this product :)
Holy cow...this stuff is awesome!! I am 8 months into transitioning from relaxed to natural and this stuff saved me. When my hair first started growing in, it laughed heartily at the leave-in's that I used on my relaxed hair.My hair was unmanageable and I wasn't sure I was going to last but thank goodness I found and KCKT. It allows me to detangle my hair with ease, especially the coarsest part which is located in the crown and moisturizes so well. A little bit goes a long way so the 8 oz bottle has lasted me since November and it's only halfway done. I definitely recommend it!
Pretty freaking awesome product! This product has awesome slip and it made detangling my hair a breeze! My hair was soo soft after using this and I'd recommend it to anybody. Love love love it!
HOLY GRAIL leave in conditioner. Will always purchase. Will fix any adverse effects of failed shampoo or conditioner testing lol light fragrance, so slippery which makes detangling and styling easy. moisturizing and it just works EVERY time no matter what else i used on my hair.
My hair detangles like a dream! I honestly couldn't believe or comprehend it. Pardon my excitement but I was so used to cringing from pain every time I detangled my hair. Great detangler overall. Doesn't have the moisturizing properties of a leave-in though but who cares?
I like this as leave-in to use under curling custard. It works great just like it's supposed to, with nice slip, through I tend to use quite a bit I don't need as much as I use. I like so use it with nothing but a light (like grape seed) oil over it in the summer.
I have a mixture of 4a,4b, and 4c hair. It is low porosity and very dense. My experience with this product is great ONLY when I use it as a detangling conditioner in the shower. I hated this product initially as a leave in. I decided to give the product another try as a rinse out conditioner. I'm so glad that I did! Detangling my hair in the shower with this product is a breeze! It is not very moisturizing for my hair so I still have to follow up with a leave in or a deep container afterwards. The only reason that I gave it 4 stars is the price. For what I use it for, I can get a cheaper detangling conditioner.
Love this product. I use it after my Cowash with Aubrey Organics White Camillia. I agree with the other reviewer, the consistency of the product makes it difficult to evenly distribute on dry hair but as I like to wet my hair daily to revive my curls, this is not an issue for me. I apply it after my AOWC while still in the shower and comb through with my fingers. When I get out of the shower I "squeeze-quench" with my hands and also with my deva towel. Apply a bit of oil (Jojoba or Almond) and that's it, air dry. My curls are defined all day. Later on when my hair is almost dry I use my fingers to 'pick' it out and combat the shrinkage. I've been using this routine for a little over a week and my curls have never looked better.
KCKT or the Detanging Conditioner in the Children's line... great leave-in or rinse out products!
Great Leave In Conditioner, leaves my 4 a/b hair feeling like silk. After a cowash, this is my Go To Product. Works well.
My experience with this product was not so great. I have very coarse, curly hair and I do not like putting water in my hair until I co-wash or thoroughly wash my hair. Putting water in my hair everyday in my opinion makes my curls shrink and I am so not a fan of that. I have to put water in my hair in order to evenly distribute the product when using this product. Although my hair was very soft after using it, white flaky residue is visible throughout my hair when adding this product without water. So instead I just use this product as a rinse out conditioner when co-washing and thoroughly cleansing my hair. I executed this method today after thoroughly cleansing my hair and as a result my hair feels very soft/silky smooth.
I can not go wo this product! I've tried bc of cost & well once I've seen how this helps my hair I now HAVE to pay the price and just get it! Nothing compares.
I love this product, it has great slip and its all natural. I always apply right after washing my hair before applying any other product.
I love that! Eu adorei esse leave-in, apesar de meu cabelo ser tipo 3C, estou em fase de transição, pois fazia relaxamento no meu cabelo, entao o comprimento está 3B, mas estou com 7 cm de raiz virgem.Meu cabelo adorou esse produto, ele forma cachos naturalmente.Amei, comprei mais 2 frascos.Só o frete para o Brasil que poderia ser mais barato,pois está muito caro para nós.
I can't live without it. In conjunction with KCCC, it's phenomenal. Best detangler I've ever used and it makes my hair curl even before I apply the KCCC.
Dried my hair out, wondered why...then I looked at the ingredients and it isn't water based, that's my fault.
Before I buy any any product I read the reviews. This is how I but Different things on ppl experiences. This product was of them. I love this product. I didn't have to use alot. I have 4a thick and coarse hair. I use that with my Oyrin homemade Pudding and seal my hair with Almond oil. left my hair soft, shine, and very bounce.
J'adore ce produit découvert grâce aux bouclettes de BT TEST ! Hydratation optimale. Je l'applique en leave-in et contrairement à d'autres, peu de produit me convient bien mieux.
Boy do I love this stuff. It makes my hair soft, works wonders with the Curly Custard and smells great. I love, love, love this as a co-wash as well. Plus it is affordable and easy to find at Target or CurlMart.com.
This is a great leave-in. I have to use quite a bit to feel like I've got enough in my hair but it makes my hair feel really moisturized. Just wish you got more in the bottle for the price you pay!
I have dry, brittle,2a, 2b, 2c, 3a, 3b, 3c(underlayer) curls... i'm like a mixed mutt breed!! I bought this because people have said it leaves moisture in your hair. i bought KCCC before this and used it alone and it worked MAGIC.however, i purchased this and used it with KCCC and Curly hair solutions curl keeper and also AG recoil... WOW it my curls were AMAZING!! i didn't get the clumping i wanted (i think it was because i diffused it too much) but my curls were define and i had volume like no other. I had a lot of shrinkage but for once it was a good shrinkage. BOUNCY, and MOISTURIZED. i have never had such touchable soft well defined curls. that combination of those 4 products = PERFECTION! for my curls at least...
As a fine and coily 4a/4b (with low porosity) I learned slowly that I needed a water-based leave-in to style and retain moisture in my hair whether I was wearing it coily, a twisout, or flat-ironing. Super heavy leave-ins did not absorb, leave-ins with too much oil frizzed up my hair, and creamy leave-ins only worked well over water-based leave-ins (a combination I now use on my hair during all seasons except for summer). When I first tried KCKT, my coily hair shrunk up into frizz and brittleness and I couldn't understand what was happening. I later realized that KCKT has a very low ph meant to seal the cuticles of the hair and smooth it so that it is prime for styling and receiving more moisture. After learning that, I understood how to use it best for my hair and it is now a necessary staple that makes a true difference in my regimen. When I do not use it, I notice that my hair does not retain as much moisture, and my styles are less smooth and long lasting. Like a base coat applied to the nail before nail polish, KCKT preps the hair for styling by creating a smooth surface. How I use: I mix a little in a spritz bottle with water (distilled water if you live in a hard water climate) and spray on my hair after washing/conditioning. This allows me to use as little as possible, while still achieving great results. Essentially, water activates the KCKT so no need to glob too much in your hair when you can dilute it in a bottle and get the same results. I then grab large sections of my hair and twirl into mini-buns that I pin up to allow the KCKT to absorb. Since my hair is low porosity, it needs encouragement for product to absorb. I tidy up, shower whatever I need to do and by the time I take down the buns, my hair is shiny, smooth and clumped into perfection. I then smooth a heavier leave-in (i.e. Oyin Hair Dew, AOHC or whatever you like) onto each section, a little sealant on the ends (Sophia's Hair Grease, KBB Creamylicious, shea butter, whatever works for you), add a styler if I want a sleeker look (i.e. KCCC, FSG) then style my hair. Overall, I've learned that KCKT acts as a smoothing leave-in and helps attract and retain moisture, although it does not provide high amounts of moisture. Perhaps if it provided enough moisture, it wouldn't be as smoothing as it is?
I first tried this product as an ingredient in KimmyTubes Leave In.... I instantly fell in love. I am currently transitioning and I am 7+ Months post relaxer. The days I was too lazy to mix up KimmyTubes Leave-In I used KCKT and I was satisfied, then I continued to use it and I just love it. It does an AMAZING job at detangling my thick coarse and coily hair and it leaves its feeling soft and with No knots. :-) I highly Recommend
This is one of my favorite leave-ins. A true staple. Very light, yet somehow moisturizing. I was surprised by how well it worked on my type 3c hair, given the lack of oils near the top of the ingredient list. I use this with a little bit of aloe vera juice, and my curls are soft, shiny and moisturized.
I love to seal this with my avocado butter mix. Together they leave my hair cottony & soft <3 only downfall I have is I wish they sold bigger sizes in stores.
I bought this product shortly after doing the big chop over a year ago. It has a great smell. Since my hair has gotten longer I do have to use half of the bottle to get it through my extremely dense non-porous 4a hair. Which means I have to buy more often. I still use if after washing. I think it deservres 4 stars bc it is a fanatstic product :)
I bought a bottle of this when it became available at Target recently. I have fine, thin, wavy to curly hair - so I have problems with products being too heavy. This stuff is so incredibly moisturizing! A little tiny bit works to soften my dry ends and untangle my hair, without weighing it down too much. Works alone for looser waves or under styling products for more curl retention. And it leaves your hands super soft too.
I just purchased this product and so far I really like it! Smells great and not heavy and greasy. I have thick coarse hair with really tight coils and this product helps me detangle quite well.
Great base. Simple with a fresh scent. No acne causing irritants, protein, glycerin, or harmful preservatives. I love adding oil, no extra stylers needed for me! I want to experiment with adding butters/creams this winter. The 32 oz is on my birthday list!
I couldn't have got through my 15 month transition without this. I am 4 months fully natural and still using this. It is my staple and I love it. Although, I do mix it with AVJ, EVOO, and castor oil. I've tried other leave ins as a base but I always go back to my KKKT.
Behentrimonium Methosulfate is NOT a "sulfate". It is made from non-genetically modified rapeseed oil. It is a scientifically advanced ingredient, considered the mildest hair de-tangling and thickening ingredient available.
Buyer beware! This product does detangle well but...I find along with a few other users I know, that you have to use a lot of this product. Which means you end up spending a lot of money over time, not good and most importantly it contain methosulfate and that's what keeps customers consistently needing to add more. It dries out your hair over time causes damage.
My hair did not like this product at all good thing i got @ my local target for $2.99 before they found out it cost $11.99.It really didnt give me the moisture that was looking for. I'll pass on this big time.
This is pretty good for detangling but not as a stand-alone leave in. For me, this product works best when I layer another leave in and an oil on top for sealing (fyi, my hair is really dry and porous so this may be product overload for you). If you tried it and had less than stellar results, I suggest using it in combination with your favorite leave in condish or sealer before you throw it out.
This is a decent leave in conditioner. It softens the hair, but I don't have enough hair to detangle yet so I don't know if that quality is true.
This product is wonderful for detangling my hair. I need to use a LOT of conditioner, because my wet hair is all the way down to my thighs. Therefore use a cheap, big bottle of conditioner. No matter how much conditioner I use, my long hair still sports a ton of snarls. Kinky-Curly Knot Today seems to magically untangle these knots with just a little bit of the product rubbed onto the trouble spots. I always use this, and it keeps me from literally ripping my hair out! I don't give it 5 curls because 1, it is such a small bottle with such a high price, and 2, I cannot use it as any kind of moisturizing product. If used as a conditioner or a leave in it leaves hair crunchy and dry. Bottom line: AMAZING detangler. BAD conditioner/leave-in.
I decided to jump in the pool and give this product a shot after reading a lot of reviews about it on various sites. IT WORKS! While I am nearing the end of a three-year transition, my hair is 4a/3c and Knot Today makes detangling easier for me. Mind you, detangling wasn't hard for me; but, it wasn't a breeze either. Thus, I recommend this product!
I really like this leave it. The smell didn't bother me and I like the consistency of it. I REALLY like it if I use it as a conditioner. When I rinsed it out of my hair...my hair is SUPER SUPER soft and shiny. I usually just use it as a leave in. I don't have the perfect amount down just yet...and I'm still experimenting, but so far I've had good results.
Adds moisture and defines curls. My only complaint is that I wish it came in a bigger bottle :( And it kind of felt like putting water on my hair. My hair is really thick and to get the right amount of moisture, I feel like I'm going to end up using this little 8oz bottle up in a mere 2 weeks of use.
AMAZING LEAVE IN..i wish that it was a TAD BIT more moisturizing though but its still great all the same...i can literally feel it smoothing my cuticles as i place it on my hair...detangling is a breeeezze...the Kinky-Curly products have such a great pH for hair...its amazing...the smell is lovely..i also wish that there was a bigger bottle that could be purchased...i will run through a bottle in a week or so..
This is the best conditioner I have ever used. It is not too heavy or greasy, yet it really moisturizes your hair. However, if you have finer hair it probably will make it more greasy. Wavy haired friends of mine, cannot use this conditioner. It works great as a leave-in in combination with a gel/serum. I get the best results using this conditioner as a leave-in + flax seed gel (so easy to make!) or the kinky curly serum. If course it would also (and does!) work with the gel, however, I am not fond of the smell of the gel. The smell of the conditioner and serum is, on the other hand, GREAT! So fresh!
After using this product, my hair was the opposite of what was described on the label: very tangled and dry!
This stuff can be your worst nightmare if you let it. It has the consistency of liquid hand soap but without the lather. The stuff really looks white. Its good for taking out twists, knots, and softening hair. It's bad because if you use too much, you will see white residue, daily conditioning or moisturizing, and styling. At first I thought this stuff was amazing but, as I started using it more, I could tell that it wasn't what i needed. Even when I used a little I would see residue and it was even worse as a rinse out conditioner. I don't know if it's because it doesn't last long after its opened or if it is because my hair doesn't like too much marshmellows in it. Either way its pricey but it works.
Love, love, love! Always find myself crawling back to it. It does exactly what it says. Definitely my favorite leave-in!
I like this as a leave in and dry hair detangler. Although with that being said, I usually top this with something creamy or add a bit of olive oil. While it's not a "holy grail" item for me, it's definitely something I can reach for in a pinch and it doesn't hurt that it's available on the ground.
After the really exceptional reviews for this product, I was pretty disappointed. It didn't feel especially moisturizing and it didn't help with frizz control. Maybe it works better with KCCC - I just used it as a leave-in under a few gels that I had in the house already - but alone I didn't think it was anything special. For a glycerin-free leave-in, the Curl Junkie Beauticurls Leave-In works much better for me.
it was ok, wouldn't say it was spectacular. Slip was not as good as I thought. I Guess I was expecting alot more with all the hoopla about this product. I'll give it another try, but will probably keep searching the market.
I originally bought KT to add to my batch of the famous kimmaytube leave in. It worked great in that concoction and I actually never really thought to use it alone as a leave in. I tried it and it works wonderfully on my hair, leaves it very soft. I've only tried it on wet hair as I get paranoid putting new leave-in creams on dry hair.Weird, I know. Not so crazy about the smell. A little too "product-y" for me.
I have tried it a few times--in fact I used this before I went in for my Deva Cut. My hair was GINORMOUS! Not in a good way, either! Hello, Woodstock hippie! It seems to get larger and larger as the day goes on! I am going to give it another try, but even with CHS Curl Keeper (my new love!), it seems to grow and bush out like back in the old days of East Coast humidity and no curl friendly products. It wipes out all of my other products, as if they aren't even there! It certainly does detangle wonderfully and feels wonderful when your hair is wet, so I will give it a 3.
2C/3A LOW POROSITY FINE HAIR I am new to the curly girl method. Ive eliminated cones & fates form my hair care routine & it has made a world of difference!! I recently purchased this from Target the other day & i looooove this stuff!! It smells so good & works as a leave in/styler for me. Im looking forward to trying the other products in the kinky curly line.
Doesn't do a lot for my 3b/c hair. I tried it as a conditioner and as a leave-in and didn't see much of a difference. It does work well on my daughters 4a hair, Makes it like butta!!!
I was a little surprised when I used this product. I thought that my hair was going to feel soft and easy to detangle. Nope. My hair felt super dry and matted. It was a pain to detangle. I thought my hair would be feeling like this after I shampooed with the KC Come Clean. My hair felt awesome after that. I actually hesitated to put this on the rest of my sections bc it made my hair feel so bad. But it was recommended to use this in order for the custard to work. This stuff was not for me.
2c Waves with some 3a, used this product as a leave in, under gel, and my hair did not feel moisturized. My hair is also super frizzy. The product does smell good, it has a light coconut scent. I will be giving this product to my mother to try out, since i will no longer be using it.
This conditioner is nothing special. It detangles ok but leaves my hair feeling dry afterward. Definitely wont be purchasing again.
It gave me really good moisture, but it weighted down my hair really bad. I can use one or two pumps on my hair for it not to weight it down so bad. I wish they made a lite version of it. I did not have any drying problems with it.
If I could give this product the score of a negative one I would. This stuff was horrible for my hair and I will never use it again. What a waste of money. It made my hair so dry to the point I have hair breakage in the middle of my head.
This is a great detangeler. I only have 2 problems with it. 1. It is very expensive for such a small amount. It takes a lot to detangler my daughters hair which is very very long, and 2. It can only be found at Whole Foods stores. My city only has one Whole Foods store. But again, the product will detangler your hair.
I love this product for my 4a hair. I use it after I shampoo and condition my hair. I use it for two-strand twists and its awesome. Makes my hair super soft. Great product.
3C. Works great and smells nice. I would like a bigger bottle seeing that it is water based so if you have thick hair lie me you would need alot in only ONE use.
Best natural detangler I have used! I have 3b/3c hair, but I used it in my brothers beautiful 4b fro, and the mothers fine 3a hair. It works for all of these hair types and doesn't pull out any unnecessary hair. With just finger combing, annoying small snarls and knots just melt away. The only detangling conditioner I have used that is up to par is Paul Mitchell's "The Detangler.". I also use it as a leave in and it definres my curly new growth very well. The smell is lovely! Think mango. When I don't have time for a twist out or braid out, I simply put this in damp hair, and twist up my straight/relaxed pieces. Love this stuff, and I recommend it to any transitioner, natural, texlaxed/silkened person!
I liked this stuff before but now I don't. It dried my hair out so bad I got breakage in the back of my hair. Stuff sucks for me.
I LOVE this conditioner! I have tight corkscrew curls! My curls are very tiny and dense! I typically usually large amounts of conditioner on my hair as soon as i hop out the shower and then apply additional product to my hair in sections. I have used this conditioner twice on my hair and once on my grandmothers hair and it barely looks like I tapped the bottle. Looking at the conditioner in the store my immediate thoughts were "Uh huh, what is this for one time use?!" I am happy that I purchased it anyway. I applied a quarter size amount throughout my entire head and each time i applied it to sections i only used a dime size or smaller! This product smells great like pineapple, kinda. It makes my hair so soft. I think I would be comfortable doing my wash and gos with Kinky Curly Knot today alone.
The Kinky-Curly line was on of the first i tried as a natural and i still use them alomost a year later. This is my only leave in condish!! The others make my scalp itch and seem to leave my hair dull. Its a great detangler with out being too thick and weighing my hair down.
Hair type 3c/4a. This is the BEST detangler/leave-in I've ever tried. It's super-light and super-slippery and has a light coconut scent. I can imagine using this on any type of hair, only varying the amount (more for thicker/coarser hair, less for thinner, wavy or straight hair). It does well on freshly washed, soaking wet hair and makes all of my other products work better to define my curls and keep them soft. It's pricey, but I can NOT be without this product when I'm wearing my hair out (not in a protective style). Love this stuff.
4a, 3c in the front. I use it underneath the KCCC and I love it. It's thick so a little goes a LONG way, more bang for your buck. Smells better than the KCCC IMO but similar. Incredible shine and softness. You can use it underneath any other styler without having to worry about residue. I will continue to purchase this, absolutely. I also like it to moisturize throughout the day. Ingredients are pretty good as well! Really nice product!
i like this leave in b/c it defines my curls BUT when it dries its crunchy :/ when i crunch it out alot then it leaves soft hold, detangles GREAT smells great just gets hard like its a gel dont like that so much. anyone it does this too?!?
My favorite product in the world and they better NEVER get rid of it!!! Makes me hair so, so shiny and smooth and smells incredible! I use it as a light, yet moiusturizing conditioner if I want to, but usually its my every day leave in!

love this stuff as next day smoother/frizz tamer, and i use it also has a conditioner in the shower somestimes when i dont want something heavy. tried it as a leave in and wasnt crazy about the definition of my curls- but it did leave them soft! overall, love this product just not as a leave in
My second review: this product was really good at first and now I really don't like it. It dried my hair out and I no longer use it. The only good thing about this product is the detangling but other than that not my thing.
Great smell, great detangler, but not good on my kinky coils! My hair was dry after a few hours so I use it at night as a moisturizer until its gone. I give it too curls because its WAY over priced for such a small amount and did nothing for my 4a coils.
I am sooo in love with the product, not matter how many other conditioners I try I always come back to this one. Well worth the 2 bottles a month:)
I gave this product 3 stars: 1 for the heavenly scent and 2 for the amazing slip. It lost 2 stars because it did nothing for my hair other than serve as a great detangler. It left my hair dry and crunchy.
I lovvvvve the way this condition smells! I used it as a rinse out conditioner usually, but occasionally I would use it as a leave-in. It is great for a detangler and it has great natural ingredients. I would highly recommend it, but it is very expensive!
I love this product!! It detangles my type 4 hair great!!! Every kink, and curl!! I just can't use a lot of it because it's so expensive.
This product smells nice, leaves my hair moisturized, provides my curls with superb definition, has excellent slip, great detangler, eliminates all my frizz even on humid and rainy days! I cowash and use it as a leave in with Kinky Curly Custard and for my 3b, highly porous, thick mane it never leaves me with a bad hair day.
I love this stuff!! I use it only as a leave-in. However I wish it was more economical because you don't get a lot for your money. That's why I only gave it four CURLS.
Unfortunately I am not satisfied with the performance of this product. I must admit my expectations were abnormally high after watching/reading the various reviews about this product. This leave-in is well known throughout the natural hair community as a top of the line "detangler" that can accommodate thick, coarse, kinky, and unruly coils. However I was not impressed, in order to achieve a decent detangling session, I had to use the heavy-handed approach to get decent results. Kinky Curly Knot Today did knot come close to meeting my expectations or maybe I just had an irrational hope that would save the day, but either way this did not moisturize, detangle, or smooth my hair better than any ordinary drugstore conditioner.
Love it as a detangler! Dries me out as a leave in. May be a bit acidic for my style. 2 stars for only getting half the equation right...too bad...I am in love with the smell!
This is the best leave-in I have ever used. This stuff is great and somehow it helps to define my curls and leaves my hair looking so healthy. I have used this under several different products and it actually enhances them. When I use other leave in's, the results are subpar. This stuff is magic!
I love the way this stuff smells! One of the best smelling leave-in's out there. It has slip, and it's a great detangler. But I feel like I have to use a lot of it in my thick, chin-length hair in order for it to work to my satisfaction. Considering my hair is only going to get longer, I don't think the price is worth what it does. Other products can do just as well for a fraction of the price and it doesn't retain any of the moisturizing feeling when it dries. I don't think I'll repurchase.
It's ok... I like the smell, but my hair does not love this product.. This and the KCCC is not for me
I love the knot today, but you have to use a lot of it for full coverage. If you ask me there isn't enough product for me I heard they had a bigger size online but I not yet found it. I wish that Shelly Davis would give us more bang for our buck, because if you don't use it in moderation this stuff won't last but a month if that!! Love the product but the size isn't worth $11.99 at Target.
Actually, I'd probably give KCKT 4 1/2 curls if they had that as an option; the only reason it doesn't get a full 5 curls is because I don't necessarily consider it a holy grail. After trying several leave-in conditioners, this was the first one that I liked because it absorbed into my hair well and didn't leave it feeling "product-y". I like that it's a light conditioner and that it smells good without overpowering. What's also nice is that it's a "quality" hair product that I can go out and get locally. It's nice having some products that I don't have to order online. I've since found a couple of more leave-ins that I like, but I definitely plan on keeping KCKT in my rotation of leave-ins.
I had high hopes for this product, but it just didn't work out for me. It does help detangle, but it did nothing to help moisturize my hair. It kind of felt like it just sat on my hair, that's about the best way that I can put it. I gave it 2 stars because I do love the scent.
This is one of the all-around best conditioners out there, in my opinion. It helps me detangle my hair really easily, and works well as a rinse-out or a leave-in. I docked a curl because the product doesn't last long--I find that i have to use a lot of it, so I burn through a bottle quickly compared to other conditioners. At $12 a pop, when i use this as a rinse-out plus leave-in, as the directions suggest, it's not economical.
This stuff is magic!! Ive been searching for a detangler/leave in for my daughters ringlets and finally I found it!!it came in the mail today and I'm on here to order more because I will never be able to do without.
I love the way this smells and it does provide great slip and moisture for my hair. And it's nice because it is organic and doesn't cause build up in my hair.
I really like this stuff. I used it with the KC Shampoo and Curling Custard. It was great for detangling, and I even used it as a shave cream. I smelled nice, too :) The only problem was it was not too moisturizing. I would still recommend it, though, especially because it's natural!
Has always been the Best conditioner for me. I use especially now for the Kimmaytube leave in:)
This has great slip and works well as a leave-in under any gel and especially under KCCC! Not very moisturizing though.
I can't figure out why so many people like this product. For $12 you get ....nothing. It does not moisturize, by the end of the day it was like I hadn't put anything in my hair. I regular conditioner does what this product is supposed to do.
First off this stuff smells so GOOD! and has so much slip! it made my hair so smooth and felt really moisturized i love this stuff!
I really wish Curlmart sold this in a 32 oz! This was the first leave in that I used when I went natural and, while I try other products and find new favorites, this product is my "old faithful". Knot Today is one of the only products that my tight curls (3c/4a) and people I know with looser can both use. It has slip, I don't have to use a lot of product, the smell is pleasant, isn't heavy, and I recommend it. I don't think there is anything more I can say about it.
This product did nothing for my 4a hair. I was so excited to try it because I have hear so many wonderful things, however, my experience wasn't the same. I placed the product on my hair section by section and detangled with a wide tooth comb, and all it did was make my hair shrink to the high heavens! My hair texture was already soft from washing and deep conditioning, so the main function I needed it for was detangling and it did not deliver. I'm going to mix the rest of the product with water and use it as a spray-in conditioner, but after that's gone, I will not be repurchasing!
This product is like the best thing....EVER!!! (: I love it and it works amazingly in my 3b thick hair. Really moisturizing and really good as a 2nd day refresher. Love this product and would recommend it fully.
I found this to be just ok. It's not really the best detangler and it's definitely not moisturizing enough for me. I prefer creamier, thicker leave ins. I gave my bottle away because my hair needs moisture and this doesn't provide it.
I've just started to actually love my curls and to start caring for them in the best possible way I could. I found naturallycurly.com and love it. I bought Kinky-Curly Knot Today based on the raving reviews it had and I was not disappointed in the least! I have 3b hair that is fine and thin but I have always had problems combing it even with conditioner, with KCKT the comb goes through my hair with no problem and gives my curls great definition, softness, and reduces the frizz that I always have. I will definitely be purchasing this product again although the price is more than I have ever spent on a hair product but my hair is worth it!
The fact that I can run my hand through my hair from root to tip when I use this conditioner, pleases me. This is an excellent detangler. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because there's really no smell, and I like it when my hair smells good.
It's pretty good for a detangler, but I find no added benefit as a LI. So in short, it's a very expensive detangler that will get washed down your drain (I apply maybe a quarter to my whole head, mixed with cheapie condish). I wont be repurchasing, unless it's on a crazy sale.
Honestly, despite the fact that Knot Today is truly liquid slip, iDont really care for it. iOnly use it when applying KCCC since the two are designed to work together. Defintely has great detangling abilities but iHave other products that do the same.
This was a game changer for us! I used to wrestle to comb out my daughter's thick, 4b hair using a wide tooth comb and a regular leave in conditioner or baby detangling spray. Let's just say, that method was painful for both of us! When using Knot Today, I don't even need a comb to get through all the knots and tangles. It leaves her hair soft and smooth and not at all heavy. Best of all, she no longer wails like a banshee when it's time to do her hair!
This is a good detangler, but it's not really all that moisturizing and it's way too light, and my hair is mostly 3a with some 3b, so usually most curly products are not too light for me. There are better leave-ins out there, and even using my RO as a leave-in beats this. It's really not bad, it's just kind of pointless since all it does is detangle, because my RO does that too.
Awesome for my hair!!! 3/4th of my hair is 3C curls which moves into the last 1/4th which is 4a... I do experience shrinkage tho and trying to figure that part out but other than that A MIRACLE IN A JAR!
I was looking all over for a good leave in conditioner and saw raving reviews for this!! I felt confident that this would soon be my "One and Only", so I bought 2 bottles when they were on sale at Target ;) I read how to apply it and did follow directions to a T. Wow. This product dried out my hair SO BADLY - I had a frizzy mess!! I thought I did not use enough, So i tried again and this time got crunch and flakes! On top of that, it looked like my curl pattern went berzerk!! Back to square one..
I don't see what all the hype is about; this is a crappy product to me. It has so many great reviews which prompted me to go to Target and buy it. I had very short hair then and this product did nothing for it. After weeks of using this mess, I finally realized why my hair was sooooo dry and brittle, it was this product and so I threw away a half full bottle. You see, I completely shaved my head and started using this product when my hair was about 5 months old. It was alright to comb through my hair, but when it dried, my hair was hard like I had put gel with ETOH in it. It sucks; hemp conditioner works excellent as a leave in for me.
This product is great at detangling! I use this as part of my routine and I love it! It's also a benefit that it detangles and provides moisture to my hair! My hair adores it!
I have wavy hair 2b/2c that tend to curl nicely after washing them but through the day they weigh down and become less wavy. I have found a perfect combination of products that helps my hair to be curly throughout the day. I start with washing my hair daily with Kinky Curly Come Clean shampoo. It cleans hair very well, some will say it stripps your hair, but really if you have wavy hair you want your hair clean, because any buildup will case your curls/waves to straighten out. I don't find this shampoo to be drying so it works perfectly with the combination of products I put on my hair after washing them with this shampoo. After the shampoo I use Kinky Curly Knot Today conditioner. I apply it in the shower, comb my hair and rinse the conditioner out (I used to apply it after shower and leave it in but it would weight down my hair to much). The Knot Today is a great detanger and it gives great smoothness to your hair without weighing them down and causing buildup. I believe the Come Clean shampoo and Knot Today complement each other perfectly with getting my hair very clean and later detangling and smoothing out with the conditioner. I would highly recommend that you use both for best results. Then I lightly pat my hair to remove excess water (so they don't drip) and apply Moroccan oil. This thing is pricy but it is like food for your hair, makes them soft, shiny and they grow like crazy. I apply one pump onto wet/dump hair (my hair is on the shorter side) and this thing last you for ever. It will not add definition, just make your hair healthier. What is also amazing about this product is that it will NOT weigh down your hair or make it feel greasy (even thought it is an oil). After I apply Moroccan oil I apply for curl definition Kinky Curl Curling Custard. This product is great in the sense that it works a little like gel but once it dries out you can't really tell you have put something in your hair (it disappears but at the same time makes your hair curl and hold the waves/curls very nicely throughout the day). Very light weight, does not weight hair down and does not dry out hair (at least with the combination of products I am using), I would highly recommend it to those who look for great curl definer and holder. With this combination of products my hair is healthy, shiny, and curls beautifully throughout the day.
I have searched high and low for a leave in that will work for my hair. My hair is fine, but dense, and it gets really dry. I needed something that was going to absorb quickly into my fine strands, but was hearty enough to really be moisturizing. This is it! I also really like the slipperyness of it, it is easy to distribute and it keeps my curls separated. With the Curling Custard on top of it my hair is so happy! It is a little pricier than some other things but I have never found anything cheaper that comes close to this. I also like that it has natural ingredients because a lot of the chemicals in other products irritate my sensitive skin. I buy a few at a time!
BEST PRODUCT I HAVE EVER USED. I'm not exaggerating. I used KCCC before and didn't like it, but with this, my curls look great. I was worried it wouldn't be too moisturizing, but that's actually just what I need. I'm cowashing now, and this cleanses and lightly conditions my hair without buildup. For hair that gets oily from cowashing but also needs some softness and moisture, this is perfect. And the slip? Awesome. My hair feels so smooth when I apply this, and the comb goes through like butter. Unlike butter, though, and other conditioners I have used, it's not greasy at all. I found another use for this, too. This is an amazing shave gel/cream because of the slip. My legs get irritated so easily, but not when I shave with this. Makes them as soft as it makes my hair, too :) This is my HG!
I have no idea what took me so long to try this because after using it for the first time today I could kick myself for being so retarded. This is without a doubt the best leave in I have ever used. Great slip, awesome curl definition and no residue....It is worth every penny.
I only give this product 2 1/2 to 3 star my hair feels soft but I still have frizzy hair in the back of my hair even though it feels nice. Not worth $12.00 though!
I have 4a hair and this works wonders. I use it on my dry hair as well as a leave-in on freshly washed hair. It allows me to easily duet angle my hair and leaves it feeling soft!
My sister's ghetto butt used this while we were walking thru whole foods and she started taking her twist out down and got some of this product out of the sample jar. yes she took her wig off, along with the cap and started taking her twist down with the knot today. Needless to say it worked really well! She just did not want to spend the money. Cheap and ghetto!
I have been searching for a new more organic leave in conditioner and I think I feel in love with the kinky curly Knot Today. This is the best product. One my wet and wavy days I use this everyday and just go and on the days I go to the shop my beautician also enjoys not having to put me under the dryer for long. Thanks naturallycurly.com for this site. Great tips
This conditioner dried out my hair. It felt like it was just sitting on top of my hair and not penetrating it. After awhile my new growth started feeling brittle and dry. However this stuff is great at detangling.
I have used EVERY single product on this line and the only product I use now is this. I deep condition with this for the smooth touchable curl look and feel. I leave it on for an hour then wash it out and have settle curls. Then I can bantu knot them.. Perfect for any girl with thick hair like mine. GREAT at detangling. I love the slip feel that i get.
I love this product.. It works wonders.. I use it to detangle.. No other product can take its place.. I tried Soo many other products .. but this one leaves my hair soft and smooth.. I go thru a lot of it.. I will definitely use it on my clients hair...
I have combination 3b/3c hair. I have been using Kinky Curly products for over 3 years now and although I have found replacements for the curling custard and the come clean shampoo this Knot Today will forever be a staple product in my daily regime. Yes, I use this product almost everyday so I always buy two bottles at a time. I just learned that on the kinky curly website you can get a 32oz bottle so that will be my next purchase. This product is 2nd to none and I don't remember what my hair was like before it was introduced to Knot Today. Oh yea, I remember, it was dull, tangled, lifeless, non-defined dry kinks. Now it is shiny, bouncy defined soft, detangled curls. I get asked almost everyday what I am using in my hair. And at the top of my list (because I do use a lot of products) knot today is always mentioned.
I have 3a/3b hair. Kinky curls on the underneath with wavy/S shaped curl on the top.. Oh my goodness, I absolutely LOVE this stuff. I used to straighten my hair for years & recently found the Curly Girl Method. I LOVE this stuff along with Curl Keeper. Never have I seen my curls THIS difined & frizzless! I used Fructise Garnier Sleek & Shine leave in until I received this. It was a bit heavier then Kinky, but I LOVE this because it's so light. I can even detangle with it and still keep my curls. Where as when I first started doing the method, my curls were only at the ends and the rest of it was wavy or S shaped. ONLY reason I give it a 4 is because I wish it came in LITER size like the curl keeper. Please get it in the LITER size!!!
I can't use anything with KCCC besides this. I've never tried it on it's own. I don't like the synthetic smell (Iike "JAM!") But hey, KCCC ain't the same without it.
This has recently become a product staple for me. I love the greener, cleaner formulation that excludes the usual chemicals/sulfates/silicones as other products. The texture is great for my 3b/3c hair -- creamy, with slight hold (but not tacky or sticky). I usually layer it under a light gel to control frizz, but on good days -- if my hair is well-moisturized -- I can get away with using it by itself after washing. I usually detangle before using this, but as a leave-in conditioner it's fantastic (and very affordable!!).
I love this! I have 3b/c VERY fine and healthy curls that get weighed down by leave-ins so I use it as my conditioner after I cowash with Curl Junkie Daily Cleansing Conditioner. Great moisture! I will definitely re-purchase.
This worked wonders on my hair when I was transitioning from relaxed to natural hair; however, it just stopped working for me as my hair became more natural. It stopped detanging my hair and it stopped adding shine to my hair.
I bought the Knot Today leave in conditioner because I tried one of the Kinky Curly products and I loved it. This conditioner left my hair feeling so silky soft and so hydrated. My curls snaps back effortlessly and feels so wonderful. I'm now completely and forever attached to the Kinky Curly line of products. Thank you!
I have 3b hair that starts to get very nice thick tight ringlets the longer I go without washing. I bought this on a whim because I normally don't have a huge budget for hair products and find that the more expensive stuff isn't worth the extra money. I thought my hair could benefit from a leave in and the treseme silicone free conditioner is a bit too thin. My hair LOVES this stuff. After I wash with a no-poo (which I only do every 4 days) and detangle with the cheaper treseme, I rake about 2 nickel sized amounts through my hair. When my hair is wet, it is past the middle of my back and while my hair is fine, i have a lot, but don't need much of this stuff. It helps my hair clump without weighing it down and provides moisture my hair desperately needs. Plus, it smells great. Days 2-4 I squeeze water through my hair in the sink and apply a similar amount squishing it through the back of my hair where it gets the most frizzy, so I end up using it daily. I've had it for over a month now and have just gotten through about 1/2 the bottle so the price ends up being pretty reasonable.
I'm used to coating my hair in deep conditioners after I shampoo, or hell, even co wash my hair. Because its just so dry! So I thought that using a thin conditioner that contains no oils, butters, cones, or petrolatum/mineral oil was a big fat joke, especially after using a clarifying poo (come clean) I don't know how it does it, but this is one of the most moisturizing conditioners I have EVER tried. And it didn't weigh my hair down AT ALL. Even though I just slathered it on, detangled, and didn't wash it out. On top of all that, this is the longest time an 8 ounce bottle of ANYTHING has EVER lasted me. And it smells great, light, clean, and fruity. AND its available on ground and is very reasonably priced seeing as it lasts forever and I don't have to pay for shipping to boot. This is black magic I say. This here managed to adress every hair isue anybody could possibly have, I haven't got a clue how that is even possible, but it did.
Knot today gets 4 stars because like KCCC, it doesn't work for me in our humid summer, trust me I wish it would. I don't use it to detangle because I have too much hair and I like detangling it with tons of conditioner. I use it as a LI after I step out of the shower. I layer KCCC over it and comb my hair to distribute it evenly. This combo is perfect for less humid winter months. My hair is seriously perfect for 3 days. The curls are elongated, defined, and moisturized. This is a great LI and its well worth the money!
I use this conditioner with the KC Curly Pudding and I get great results. The conditioner is moisturizing and has some slip but, I'm not too impressed. I'm still in search for a great natural leave in to provide another layer of protection to my hair. 3b/3c
i like this product and it gives great moisture for my post- cowash 4a strands, but the only thing I notice is that it leaves a white film on my hair when I use it with other products. I'm probably not rubbing it in enough or am using too much, but the residue is the only reason I didn't give this 5 curls.
I LOVE THIS CONDITIONER!!! I get this from Target whenever I can :D The scent is light but I love the way it makes my hair feel. I use it right after washing my hair or whenever my hair is feeling dry. I have no regrets whatsoever about buying this product! :)
I love this product! It is easily spread throughout your hair, does what it needs to do, and smells wonderful. I have started using a bit of it with my sheamoisture conditioner during my shower, because it helps spread the thick conditioner throughout my hair. It has definately helped with my frizz. I have no idea how it will fair in my dry cold climate this winter. * I will never give a product 5 curls, unless it is a miracle in a bottle. Which I don't believe exsists! lol
I am in love with this product! This is the first leave-in I have found that leaves my hair soft, shiny, and frizz-free WITHOUT weighing it down! I've used the Curling Custard and love it as well. I can't wait to finish off the shampoo/conditioner that I have so that I can purchase and try theirs!
This is my favorite leave-in conditioner! It's creamy and hydrating, but never weighs my curls down. I have thick 3a/b hair that loves moisture, and I use Knot Today underneath my gel every day. The result is bouncy, shiny and healthy curls! I have tried many CG leave-ins, including Giovanni and Garnier but this one has by far the best results for me. I even use a very small amount mixed with water and gel to refresh my second day curls. I left 4 stars only because if you use too much you can get just a tiny bit of residue. But this is easily avoidable :) A must-have product!!
Everyone raves about this product but its doesnt work with my hair type for a stand alone (2b/2c) it doesnt really grab my curls or retain moisture although it gives great slip.It works good as the base of a conditioner mix because it melts into the hair.
i just used this product for the first time this week and i have nothing but rave reviews!!!!! i've been looking for something that will my curls soft and not look like a bee's nest! I told my sister about it too :) i'm dominican/chinese with 4a/4b type hair and this is wonderful!!! doesn't play nice with certain hair products tho... but just with the Curly Custard and this, i'm sold!
I have 4b/4c hair, and this stuff just rocks at softening up and melting the tangles outta my hair! It's last me quite a while so far. I probably use it 1-2 a week (I alternate between it and Giovanni leave-in) and I've got 4/5 left of it! I've had it for 5 months now so the price doesn't bother me at all! Totally worth every scent!
This is great as a rinse out detangler for my daughter. She's a swimmer, so she's washing her hair often and it takes some abuse. This takes all the knots out quickly and easily. Great as a leave in too. She's a 2b or c.
Great Product, Not too heavy. Works on 3c, 4a, and 4b curls. Love this stuff. It's not too too expensive either. It smells good too.
This is a really great product. I was using DevaCurl B'Leave in previously, but found that it was drying out my Type 2 Wavy hair after long-term use. I have been using this product regularly for over a month and I'm very happy with it. It has great slip, smells wonderful, and leaves my hair really manageable!
very good product to be used on wet or dry hair! Works with combination of a wide range of other products.
(Type 4a) Knot Today is definitely #1 in my HG of products. I always rebuy this product and get nervous when I'm running low. I use knot today as a conditioner, a leave-in, Sometime I even use it to style a particular section of my hair w/ water. Cute packaging, great island-y like smell. The consistency is snotty-creamy. I get great slip with this product and it never takes away definition from my hair. I would recommend it to a friend.
I really love KCKT! I have really thick hair and the ends always look dull, even just a week or so after a haircut. I put this on while still in the shower with soaking wet hair and then add whatever styling gel I'm using that day, scrunch out water and air dry. I've had it about 3 weeks and I have about 3/4 left in the bottle. My hair is so much softer and I especially notice the ends feel soft and healthy. I can't quite place the smell, but it's nice and doesn't stick around that long. It's a bit on the expensive side so I might try out some other options before buying it again, but I definitely don't regret the purchase and I will use the whole bottle!
I'd be lost without knot today! I've tried numerous leave in conditioners but this topped them all. The second you put this on your hair it is SO silky smooth, the comb just glides through. I have always had a problem with detangling and this makes it a sinch. It is SO moisturizing as well! It only takes a VERY LITTLE amount of product to get VERY GREAT results! :) It's totally worth the $12, I promise! I use this, followed up with curl keeper & kinky curly curling custard. It's an amazing trio.
I really love this product, it makes detangling my hair so easy esp bc 'm going natural from years of relaxing and this is especially helpful for the areas where the new growth is meeting the old processed hair, i've never actually used it by itself, i usually just add it to my deep conditoner (giovanni deeper moisture conditioner), regular conditioner (Curls coconut conditioner) or leave in conditioner (shea moisture curl enhancing smoothie)
A great product, I've been using it on my fine 3c curls for over a year now and I haven't found anything that can replace it in terms of a detangler and moisturizer. I put it on and detangle my hair with my fingers, then I rinse some of it out, and use the curling custard as a styling gel.
Great Detangler and gives a good amount of moisture, not as much as I would like (still great though).
This is a nice rinse-out conditioner for softening and detangleing. I use it as a leave-in when I use the Curling Custard and it helps keep my curls from getting too short and tight. It also keeps the Custard from getting too crunchy. I use this on my 3 year old daughter's hair for detangleing, and she loves it. For my hair, the KC line is fantastic in low dew point weather (in the mountains here), but it's a bit drying in my usual 50-60 degree dew points. Knot Today smells like soft-serve vanilla ice cream...yum. I think this, with the Custard, provides the best frizz control of any product combo I've ever used.
This Leave-In Detangler/Conditioner is so yummy!! Besides the delicious scent, it provides excellent slip, which enables me to keep more of my below-the-bra-strap length hair. It leaves me with moisturized, soft hair and kills frizz. I use this under Kinky Curly Curling Custard for beautiful beachy wavy/curly tresses that last all day here in hot/humid FL. I have even used a dime size amount of Knot Today by itself, and after letting my hair air dry (till about 90%), I blew dry straight. It worked fabulously!! It even added shine! I will continue to repurchase.
This is by far the best leave-in I have ever used! It melts into your instantly and detangles hair really well. Also, you don't need a lot of product on your hair for it to work. I think I can safely say this is a new HG product for me~
I am a 2b and I love this product! I finally found something that would keep a wave pattern without frizzyness or the wet look. It dries soft manageable and frizz free, exactly what I was looking for. I use it right after shower then follow up with a gel (or LaCoupe spray) to get a more hard/definite "going out" look. For everyday use this is wonderful and not greasy... Worked for me hope it works for everyone else ;-)
I love this stuff! I have a cosmetologist license and have tried a TON of products and can usually get products cheaper than the normal person. Although I have to pay more for this product, it's worth it. You use just a little and my hair has nice slip, feels nourished and removes all of the tangles. I am still growing out some of the keratin treatments I had done which had ended up damaging some of my hair but this stuff really brings my curls back to life when used with the Curling Custard. The other BIG bonus is that it is animal friendly and no cones, parabens, etc. Love love love this stuff!
i really liked this product as a leave in conditioner. it smells good does its job and i would buy it again, i really don't have anything negative to say i really liked but it wasn't some miracle worker its just a nice leave in
Knot Today is an amazing product! The ingredients are simple and natural without the harsh stuff like mineral oil, petro,silicones, sulfates etc. Knot Today is a must have for me and my son. I have 3c,4a,4b and my son has 3b 3c. dryness is eliminated once our hair is quench with water then the product goes to work to moisturize and detangle. It seems to melt the knots away very well. I cannot remember the last time I felt like giving up on being natural. It also smell clean and sweet. This Kinky-curly product<br />has helped me a lot. No tears period. Try it, it's cool!
Knot today is amazing!! I use it after I DC or co-wash with another conditioner. I also use it as a leave-in. It makes my hair so managable!! It is a great detangler and has a light feel and smell. Before Knot Today I used to cry when trying to get the knots and tangles out of my hair! NO MORE TEARS!!
I like this produce well enough. It is a great detangler but if it's mixed with the ecostyler gel it flakes a lot. I still use it but not with any other products other than coconut oil.
ok This is an amazing fantastic conditioner. I love the deva one conditioner but this is way better. It leaves your hair super soft and smooth BUT for the size its pricey. So i give it 4 curls instead of 5 for pricing.
I love this leave-in conditioner for my long 3a/3b hair. It's light, smells wonderful and I can use it by itself as a styling product when the humidity isn't too high. It's a little on the pricey side, but I only need to use two nickel-size dollops, so one bottle lasts me a long time. I'll definitely repurchase when I run out.
It left my hair dry... I heard people rave about this product and wanted to love it but I dont :( I guess I'm giving this one away
I tried this for the first time today. I am in a transition period right now. Its my first thirty days going natural. I have been using the Devacurl line and although I like the concept behind it, it does not appear to be working for me like it does for others. Some days it's great, others are not and I can NEVER get a second day out of it. I saw the rave reviews for this and I just had to try it. I wasn't going to comment until I saw what my hair looks like tomorrow but I couldn't wait! I already feel the difference. I didn't use the whole line as I have too much of the expensive Devacurl products. I co-washed & conditioned but instead of leaving the conditioner in, I washed it all out with cold water and squeezed out the excess water. Next I sectioned my hair into eighths and added a pea sized amount of kckt to each section and brushed thru with fingers. next I added a nickle sized amount of angell to the same section, racking thru with fingers and then scrunching. worked my whole head this way and let air dry. My hair feels so soft and light. I didn't even have to break the gel cast like I would have before when leaving in the one condition! The curls are defined and almost frizz free! Best of all my hair doesn't feel coated (yet). I'll see what it looks like tomorrow. The ONLY reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 curls is because it does EXACTLY what it says it will do...it elongated my curls into waves. I had started getting my curls back after 15+ years of straightening. I think I just used too much for my fine curls and next time I Will us less, but this is definitely staying part of my routine. I love it!!!!!
OMG, this is fab.... First time in my life that i dont have to use those sticky smelly mouse. this product really works for me - loved it!!!!
This product is amazing! I used it once before and it did what it said but my elongated 4a curls were kinda crunchy in combo with the custard. So i did something different this last time I used it. I used the whole line like suggested. Then I took the Knot Today conditioner and sectioned my hair into 4 inital sections and smaller to liberally apply the product. I applied the leave in to the smaller sections before finger combing the custard in. i did that through out my entie head. It took about 30 mins. But guys....OMG... my hair was so soft and bouncy, something i havent experienced. i kept my hair like for 4 days! thats a feat for me! I can barely go 2 days without washing. And my hair was sooooo moisurized that it felt like it was wet with product but had not applied any. I love the kinky curly line =)
This product paired with the curling custard is my hg!!! It give me great "slip" and I have seen a huge improvement in my curl's health & was happy not to have the distribution/amount problems that some people have!
This was awesome and smells great but only works well with the kinky curly come clean shampoo. It has to be followed with a styling product immediately or else it will sit on your hair making it look and feel silky and grand till 6 hrs later when it dries and your hair is dry as if you have done nothing to it in days! Good temporary results.
Love love love this product, leave my curls much easy to deal with during the week And much more defined! It is kindly pricey but as the saying goes u get what u paid for! Recommend this product to woman who has thick curly hair!
Great product, I've been using this for a while now. The only problem is that it is so expensive 150TT$, but it is okay for my 4b hair, I try not to use too much because of the price, which makes me wonder whether I'm fully benefiting.
Great leave-in! Liquidy texture didn't change how my curls behaved (didn't weigh down or increase my curls) and was surprisingly moisturizing for the texture..
I love this! It is so versatile... I use it to do so many things. I mix it with deep treatments and conditioners for better distribution if they have no slip, I use it alone for heavy-duty detangling in the shower if my normal condish is not enough, I use it as a leave in. It plays very well with most of my products. For some reason it does not like my LA Looks Sports Gel, so I don't use it with that, but otherwise I never have to worry about product interactions. It is easy to mix with oils too... When I am feeling lazy, or I know that I want to wear my hair up for a few days in a row, I just leave off all styling products, and mix the KCKT with some coconut oil. The price is a little much, but I spend very little on my other products, so I am willing to splurge a little on this one.
Provides fantastic slip. I used it as a leave-in with KCCC, but didn't get the results I wanted. I will definitely use it as a detangler and possible as a leave-in on very humid days, but not with the KCCC. Knot Today is a really good product!
I tried this leave in a while back, but when I saw it on Kimmaytube I used it again. I love the results!!!!! It is my favorite and the best leave in ever. My hair is super thick and this detangles and moisturizes my hair so well. I don't like the KCCC but I love this product!!!!
this is my favorite leave-in! i like to use it with the curling custard of course and also eco styler gel because it doesnt give me build up or flakes. also gives excellent slip. the only bad thing is i hate to spend more than $8 on products lol. sorry college budget, but i will continue to buy this unless i find something cheaper that works the same.
This is the ABSOLUTE best conditioner I have tried so far. It left my hair SOOO soft! and smells good. I dont mind paying 11.99 at target.. I will use this again. Its like the tangles were so easy to comb through after using this! GO kiny curlY!
I love this leave-in conditioner. It's basically the only leave-in that does everything that I want it to do: it leaves my hair soft, well defined, and tangle-free. Plus, it has a very pleasant, subtle scent. Wonderful!
OMG ! LOVEEEE THIS PRODUCT !!!! I bought this for $11.99 at Target along with the Kinky Curly Curling Custard which was $15.99 , and just tried them both this morning while getting ready right before going to work . Right now , I'm on a lunch break and I just had to write this review because my hair looks AMAZINGGGGG ! My thick , dry mixture of 3B/3C curls are perfectly defined , moisturized , and smell damn good . I didnt even mind the mild crunch I got because after I scrunched my hair gently , which only takes 2 minutes on my shoulder length hair , my hair was very soft and NO frizz even after the scrunching ! I can't tell you how many looks and compliments I got from both guys and girls as I was heading to work , even my Co-workers were in awe (but then again , people seem to adore my hair no matter what products I have used LOL ) . I'm so glad I decided to give these 2 much-hyped-about products a try , it was so worth it and yes I will be making more purchases of these both after work ! No wonder they always fly off the shelves at my local Target ! :)
This product smells great. I only use about a nickel size amount for my shoulder length fine hair. I don't think it is better than the Curl Junkie leave-in conditioner so I give it 4 curls.
LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE!!! Swear by it!! Detangles amazingly, smells great and doesn't leave a film! I always keep an extra bottle on deck! Great moisturizer too! I use it a lot for WashnGo since I am a fitness instructor. Due to all the sweating i must admit I do need oil and added moisture for my hair but I love this product! On another note, i despise KCCC...yuck!
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.
All summer I have been a PJ trying to find a cheaper alternative to KCKT + KCCC. No luck great for protein sensitive curlies too. Only thing that had gave me 3 day hair too. KCKT smells great it's light enough to be used as a LI without product build up or weighing hair down. Even my husband can tell when I use this combo!!! I have the best hair days no matter what the weather is like!
*Used as leave in conditioner...not styler....***Used this in conjunction with the come clean shampoo, Shea Moisture's Curl Enhancing Smoothie and a dollop of Frizz ease curl mouse...and LOVED it! It seems to reduce the amount of single strand knots that I usually get. My curls were soft and defined and bouncy but elongated...though SM's Curl Enhancing Smoothie is absolutely fantastic solo...this seemed to just anchor it. I plan on purchasing again
This is my ONLY go-to product. My hair is so lovely with it. It looks and feels baby soft, it's bouncy, fluffy and has absolutely NO frizz. I use a dime size amount and try to only add it on my roots and then just scrunch until I feel it's even enough. (today was 109 degrees, dewpoint was in the 70's and the humidity was in the 60's and I had an awesome hair day!) Can't ask for much more.
I couldn't be any happier with this product. Definitely a HG. The hype around the product is with good reason. My knots fall out. And my hair is thin and wispy and knots in an instant! BUY!
It definitely does help with de-tangling. I have 3c and a little 4a hair, so I get knots and tangled all the time. I give this 4/5 because my hair had a weird feel when I applied this while my hair was wet. I have no idea how to describe it. It just felt stange. Also, I think it cause my sensitive skin to break out. But my hair combs out a lot easier.
It's ok. Nothing to write home about. Good as a refresher but not at this price point. I didn't see any grand results over just spritzing my hair with water or a cheapie leave-in/detangler. Good for layering or applying before other products but not a necessary product.
There is nothing wrong w/ this product; in fact I love the smell, the natural ingredients, the fact that it's protein free and it detangles well, but it's just not moisturizing enough for me. I have thick, course, almost shoulder length 3b hair and in the 2 months I've been using this w/ curl keeper my hair is drier than normal. I keep switching back to my Ouidad LI, but since I'm having product build up, I'm trying to find an alternative to the 'cones in Ouidad. Unfortunately, KCKT is not it for me.
I really like KCKT. It does what it says it will. It's a great detangler and a very moisturizing leave-in. It, however, doesn't mix the greatest with my gel (I don't use KCCC). That is my only complaint. Great product! and it smells pretty great!
Light moisture but combined with the curling custard WOW these two are my HG for wash and go's nothing else gives me tese amazing results!
This is a great leave-in conditioner when used with the curling custard and the come clean. When I try and use other products with it, it's a no-go. But with at least the custard and the shampoo, it works wonders!! Don't knock it if you haven't tried all the products!
Tried to make it work, wanted it to work, but failed. It's a nice detangler, but no matter what I used over it, once my hair dried it was poufy, frizzy and dry, and kept getting bigger and frizzier as the day went on. This is the only leave in that gave me such disastrous results. Guess there's something in the ingredients my hair hates.
I like the thickness of the product but it didn't help and didn't hurt. I couldn't really see much of a difference.
I absolutely love this product! :) I use it as a leave in conditioner under my gels and it gives me great defined, curl formation. Because it's pricey, I don't use it all the time, but I can always tell the difference when I switch from using any old conditioner to this one. I feel like knots literally melt out of my hair when I apply this, and it give my hair that smooth, seaweed feel. It has a light, coconut scent, that is not my favorite, but not overpowering either.
Pros: smells good, has a good slip Cons: left my hair dry My hair doesn't KCKT or KCCC in terms of moisture :(
I have been using this product for over a year and will never go back to another product. My hair is luxurious and growing so fast my stylist is amazed. I admit - I'm addicted to the smell.....a light cherry scent? Hard to describe and I do NOT like fruity scents as a general rule. Maybe it's not even cherry.....just a wonderful, light scent. I also use the Come Clean shampoo exclusively and since my hair is incredibly healthy and strong over the last year, my husband has switched over and is using these products. Can't say enough about these products. I will note - if you have build up of any kind already on your hair, you might see a white film.....be sure to use the Come Clean shampoo or another clarifier if you see that white build up.....it means your hair wasn't sparkly clean to begin with. This is by far the most moisturizing conditioner I have EVER used.
This fails as a leave-in, but it's a great detangler. has lots of slip and the tangles are easy to comb out after using this. probably wont repurchase, unless my hair is super-tangled.
Love this stuff! I use it as a conditioner in the show and leave in for about 3 to 4 minutes and then rinse out. My hair is bouncy and shiny + tangle FREE!! Great stuff - love the smell and the ingredients.
This is my 1st review on this site. after my recent BC I purchased this product to use as a leave-in condish. I can honestly say that it did what it was supposed to. My 3b/3c/4a hair felt moist and flexable. I didn't like the fact that I had to use so much to really cover my thick hair. I also had a problem getting it to mix with my styling cream. I will continue to experiment with it because i feel it has potential to do great things for my hair.
AWESOME product! I actually came across this product after viewing Kimmaytube's leave-in-conditioner video on youtube. I picked up bottle, used it in her mixture and applied it to freshly shampooed and DC hair right before going to bed. The next morning, my hair felt soft, smooth and didn't have that filmy product build up feel to it. Since then, I've been hooked. I've also used the product alone to moisturize my hair between washes and I've added some of it to my own leave in mixture I carry in a spray bottle. Great, great product!
I LOVE this product I have 4b/c hair and it's very dense and tends to be dry and unruly:( but with kinky curly knot today my hair is soft and moisturized only downside is I use alot of it I wish it was sold in a liter that would be perfect. I f they make a liter I would give this product 5 instead of 4 curls
I really like this conditioner. It’s great for removing tangles and knots in my hair and it smells good. It does dry a little light so I usually have to follow it with shea butter to get the moisture my hair needs. I tried using it with the Curling Custard but ran into a few bumps, but alone with a little shea butter works great as a leave in. Would give the product a 5 curl rating but for the price I wish it came in a larger bottle. Just trying to be economical.
Love it! I use KT as a leave-in and it leaves my hair tangle-free and moisturized and isn't too heavy for my 3a hair
Hands down, the best hair product I have EVER used. I have fine, 3A/2B hair. The dry winter weather here in Colorado is extremely harsh on curlies. Within 2 days of use, however, my hair was MUCH softer, smoother, and had more controlled curls. I put a generous amount on my hair, while it is still sopping wet in the shower. It soaks right in and layers well under any other products. Can't wait to try more products from KC!
I have mostly 4a hair that it detangled well. Not greatly moisturizing but ok. Used it with the Kimmytube leave-in and loved how it made my hair feel and how my short 2 strands came out Very soft and the smell is nice. What I do not like about this product is that it does not mix with other products like pure aloe gel. It left those little white product balls and I had to rinse my hair out. I will only use it if I don't use something else in my hair which is not often.
THIS IS AMAZING!!! I get SO many compliments using this and even though it's pricey, I get at least 3-4 days of wear with only one application! Had to watch a couple of videos on youtube to figure out how to use it the right way, but I tell you, on my 3C hair this stuff works wonders! Try it and you won't be disappointed!!!
After deep conditioning, I use this to keep my hair nice and moisturized. My hair is easy to comb through, and it feels great
This is the first conditioner I used when starting my transition, and I love it. The organic ingredients and that it actually detangles my easily tangled hair is why I like knot-today
Knot Today was NOT for me. My hair hates this stuff. I gave it 3 trys. My hair loves the Kinky Curling Custard, but not this..sorry Knot Today
There is no better leave-in conditioner than this! It smells great (sweet), its natural, AND it works like a charm! Couldn't ask for anything better. Only a little in each section will truly detangle even the biggest knots. I will keep buying this until they stop making it. (hopefully no time soon)
I really like the way this product works with KCCC and it makes my hair beautiful. My only quam is that I have 4b hair and so I need ALOT of it and thus go through the bottle very quickly. I wish it was either cheaper or came in a liter-sized bottle for like $15
Hands down THE best leave-in conditioner period. it's creamy and non-tacky and has an amazing slip and shine for a silicone-free product. again, i only rate this 4/5 instead of 5/5 because it's very pricy for a leave-in and it does not last me for a long time.
I really enjoyed the smell and the consistency of the product, however, I did not find it moisturizing enough and it is very sticky.
Alright. First off, let me start by saying that I never in my life planned on buying and KC products (I had reasons, but I won't go into it) but I will be getting micro braids tomorrow so I figured that I should deep condition my hair before. As I looked, my eyes fell across th KC shelf at Target. Remembering all the reviews I'd seen about Come Clean and being impressed with the ingredients, I picked up a bottle of that. For good measure, I grabbed a bottle of Knot Today as well. After washing my hair with the shampoo in the shower (I'll touch on that in another review) I put a dollop in my hand (somewhere between a dime and quarter sized amount) and rubbed my palms together. Began running my hands through my hair. WHOA. I was surprised at how effortlessly it soaked into my hair, automatically softening and moisturizing my strands. I broke out my trusty wide toothed comb and got to work detangling...it was so much easier than it usually is to detangle, and it took way less product to do so! My hair's thick and on the bottle it says for coarser curls to use a generous amount...I didn't need generosity in the slightest. A moderate amount is fine. Heck, even a tiny amount makes a remarkable difference! I dc'd afterwards and added a tiny bit to my hair to help comb through again...worked like a charm. The reason I'm giving it a 4 after so many good words? Well, it could've easily been me getting my standard comb back as opposed to a horrible one I've been using for a few weeks that made detangling easier than it's been. It also could've been other factors that helped. I'll keep using it and if it keeps working its magic the way it is I'll most likely repurchase. The way it's looking as of now though, I just may have found a staple :)
I just started using this product and it's a great detangle. I used it in combination with KCCC, but I think that I'll like it better used alone. It does provide good curl definition without using KCCC! Definitely a good buy!
The best leave in I've used thus fat. Moisturizing and detangling. Along with KCCC provides great curl definition and softness for my 3b/c coarse curls.
I NEVER USED ANYTHING LIKE THIS BEFORE! It mad detangling a breeze and when I used it as a leave-in conditioner it defined my curls and coils by itself! Knot Today keeps my hair moisturized and soft to the touch!
Great detangler with excellent slip! However, I do not prefer it as a leave in. Not the most moisturizing IMO.
Based on my rating, I'm not saying its a bad product. However, I found it did not have enough slip as I would have like for detangling my hair. The ingredients are good. It does, fo me, work better as in a combination with shea butter and jojoba oil to make a semi holding gel/ lotion. Its helped hold in my twists and show curl definition. Would I repurchase? Not too sure.
I love it! This detangled my hair perfectly and made my curls nice, smooth, and defined. I did a wash-n-go with ONLY this in my hair and I had less shrinkage and less poofing than normal. First impression is a 5!
Knot for my 4b hair... it left my hair feeling dry. I have very dense tightly coiled hair that loves water. Did more damage than good. If you are a busy 4b. This product is not worth the additional time to get right. The kinky curly curling custard is a must have though.

Never have I had to use less conditioner, but this stuff amazed by boyfriend and me. Both of us, his 4a and me 3b/c had gotten too much out. We had been using herbal essence long term relationship leave in conditioner before going cg method and needed lots of the stuff. This though just a tiny bit does it. I followed with the KCCC and WOW! Shine, defined, and soft. The price is ok given how long this will last. (I had prided myself on drug store only products--Aussie moist conditioner and the HE LI with vital care mousse. I've now upgraded to Whole Foods for my hair products. ;)
This leave-in has it all!! It's organic! It's a very quick detangler! and it's a wonderful leave-in! Your hair comes out feeling silky smooth! (Plus, it smells awesome!) Who could want anything more when you've got Knot Today to work wonders in your hair!?!?
I love this as a moisturizer! I use it whenever I want my curls to be hydrated and don't want to deal with gunk or bad combinations with any other styling products so I use it all the time. Knot Today is amazing.
Where do i start? When I opened it, the sweet smell it me pretty hard. If it's not for you no worries because the smell dissipates. The texture is creamy and slick and once i put it on my head the tangles melted away. The downside..well some may call it an upside but it works too well. My curls were super defined which means I had a LOT of shrinkage. I personally like my big hair I just wish it could be big and the curls defined. This is a great product.
This product(Knot Today and KCCC) is a keeper. I have two daughters 4a-b and 3c. This product works beautifully on their hair. I get different results. The outcome is beautiful. This product is like magic. The product really smells good. I along with several people loving to touch their hair. I have tried other products including the Eco-styler. I thought I could get by cheaply with Eco-Styler. There is no comparison; I am sorry. Once I have tried KCCC it would really be hard for me to find another product that will make me say “Wow”. Eco-Styler only last day maybe two at best. KCCC last my daughters 7days and that is with being involved in sports and other outdoor activities.

For us type 4 follow instructions according to their website for best results.
this is my first time using this product and i must say that i love it!! it was easy for me to detangle which usually is a hussle for me because i would usually have the tub full with my tangles mess..but as soon as i use dis product, i didnt leave no mess behind and it was soo easy to detangle..it left my hair super soft and moisturized..i love it and would definitely buying this again...
I've tried dozens and dozens of products over the past 20 years on my natural hair (4b) and sensitive skin. Finally, I came across a natural product that has served me well for over a year. Kinky Curly wins hands down!!
Hands down, the best conditioner out there. Well worth it. I purchased my second bottle yesterday. Usually, I don't care about brands, but this is it for me. The only reason why I did not give it 5 curls is because my daughter is allergic to it :-(
Love this product. I use it under the Kinky Curling Custard. Leaves my 3a-3b curls soft, moisturised and completely tangle free!
This is definitely one of the best detanglers I've used in my life! I apply about a tablespoon in my hair and comb through before styling my hair. It leaves my hair feeling manageable and knot-free for up to three days before I shampoo again. I love the Kinky-Curly line and especially Knot Today! =)
THE best leave-in/detangler I've found. Just wish it came in a bigger size! I have really thick 3C hair and it will maybe last 2-3 weeks if I don't use it to often.
OMG, this was the best product I have purchased since doing the big chop. It makes my hair easy to style and gives me lots of definition. It last all day long. It is a must have. I buy it my the case. luv luv this product.
This product does what the description says as it detangles my tightly curled hair excellently. The only reason why I did'nt give it 5 curls is because it is not very moisturising. The directions on the bottle say you can leave it in or rinse it out, however, I find that when I leave this product in my hair it becomes dry. I found this an excellent product to use for co-washing my hair. When I use this for co-washing it leaves my hair soft, detangled and clean. It is the best thing I have found for co-washing, it easily removes all grease and product build up from my hair.
This is by far the best stuff I have ever put on my hair. The first time I used it with the Come Clean Shampoo the comb went through my hair like a knife going through soft butter. I've never had that happen before. If you want a consistent detangler/conditioner this is the way to go (but buy plenty!).
This is by far the best leave-in conditioner. It leaves my hair so soft and managable. And the best part about it that it's all natural ingredients. Wish it was available in 32oz!
I really liked this product. I did find that I could not apply it with great results on damp hair. My hair best absorbed the product when it was soaking wet. It smells delightful, and works well under most things. Most of all, I appreciate how light the product is. My hair didn't feel weighed down, which left me the flexibility in styling.
best detangler i have ever used ! it left my hair easy to comb. and it smelled pretty good .
Having curly hair isn't easy. I have gone through so many products and i can honestly say this is one of the BEST! I'd recommend it for anyone.
Now I see why this product is always sold out! If you have thick hair, this is the right leave-in conditioner for you. This product gives the weight to my hair that I need and reduces frizz! I know the next time I order, I'll buy two.
Okay, so I tried this for the first time today, due largely in part to all the rave reviews. I've heard (read) before that the scent is comparable to cherries, but I didn't care for the smell of my particular bottle--reminded me of pineapple. Not so cool... but other than that, it DOES do what it's meant to do: detangle. I would actually recommend Darcy's Botanicals Vanilla Delight Leave-In over this product because it comes in the same exact size; costs the same amount; smells better; detangles just as well; and provides more moisture. I don't think I'll be repurchasing this one, but if you're looking for slip, I think you've found it.
I love this product! It works in great extensions with the other kinky-curly products, and make it so easy to detangle. I also like to use this as a hair creme mix, where i mix it together with oils and sheabutter. It makes my hair so soft, and its good to styling. And it smells fantastic, this product have the most amazing smell on earth!
I purchased this product along with the custard and the come clean shampoo...this is the best leave-in conditioner that I've ever used. I love the pleasant smell and everything! EXCELLENT product for my 4b hair!
3a,b,c and 2c at the nape. This is the top of the line for hair conditioners. I have used this with Kinky-Curly Custard and I Love the results. Even alone Kinky-Kurly Knot Today is a wonderful product for my curls. Very moisturizing, no stiff or greasy feel and smothing results.
One of my absolute favorite products. This conditioner supplies great results on everyone I have personally known to use it. It has a nice fresh natural smell that is not overpowering. It leaves the hair feeling soft and moisturized and is great for detangling. You can rinse out completely and follow with your favorite products or lightly rinse and use as a leave-in/moisturizer. Very versatile and little goes a long way. Only drawback is that like the other Kinky Curly products is the price. But if you only get one thing, get this!
This product goes a long way and performs the way it is advertised. I only wish it was more moisturizing for my dry, fine hair. I have not found a better LI product at this time, but will always stay on the look out for my HG product! Just as a disclaimer I have to say that this is the first made for curlies hair product that I've tried, and is the only reason I am looking at other products.
Lives up to the hype. Works beautifully with the Curling Custard, and using the entire Kinky Curly system together gave me beautiful, moisturized 2nd day hair (which is rare for me). It also neutralizes the drying effect of the Come Clean shampoo.
Awful product that only give me slip when I would douse my hair in it (which most anything really would) HOWEVER, much better when you follow this videos instruction: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qXi2k4cFFhI. Just by adding a little oil and aloe vera, it makes it wonderful and my hair is still moisturized on the third day. Lasts much longer too. To Summarize: Awful = itself Wonderful = add aloe vera + oils
This. Is. Awesome! So smoothing, so moisturising, but light enough to use as a leave-in on fine hair. I think I am a customer for life! (Handily enough, the bottle neck is the same size as the CURLS products, so using one of their pump lids helps me control amounts better, and makes the bottle last much longer.)
I love this product. This is 1 of the few products that I can detangle with and not loose most of my hair in the process
I would give this a 1, but it could be user-error. I really like the Curly Custard and saw the great review for this product, so I (the products junky) trotted back to Whole Foods for Knot Today, much to my surprise my hair was extremely tangly. I lost more hair during my detangling session than I had for a long time. I am going back to my old routine.
This leave in is probably one of the best I've used so far for my 3c curls. Even if I use this as my base leave in no matter what other product I am going to use as my styler. It really is wonderful and the smell is great too!
This is a wonderful condtioner, it smells great and has lost of slip and leaves my hair very soft and easy detangled. As for defining my curls it does nothing.
Yup-I am with everyone. This is one GREAT product. I use it with the whole system and my hair is just fun. Easy to take care of and no FRIZZ.
I love this product! I BC'd about a month ago and I have very dry heat damaged hair. The Knot Today works to soften my hair as best as anything can right now. My hair is so so badly damaged that I will need to BC again once I grow out another couple of inches but at least for now the KCNT has helped tremendously in sealing in what little moisture my hair will retain. I can't wait to experience the results on healthy hair.
A great leave in conditioner ! aids in setting the curling custard ! the scent is a light powder scent !
Kinky Curly is truly a lifesaver for me. I recently did the big chop almost a month ago and my hair was so dry. I started reading on different blogs how people take care of hair especially TWA and a lot of people said Kinky Curly Today and Curly Pudding. I use them both every morning and I get great results everytime.
LOVE IT!!!! I use it while my hair is soaking wet and it leaves my hair soo soft and manageable.
My hair is short and really doesn't get tangled with the products I'm currently using it. I was using this product just before and after I got my Big Chop and went all natural, but then I switched to the products my stylist used on my hair and recommended I continue to use. I am keeping the remainder of what's in the bottle around for when my hair grows out and I may need it in addition to what I'm using now. When my hair was longer and unhealthy, it did detangle my hair and made a good attempt of retaining moisture in my super dried out hair.
Wow! I definately love this conditioner! I just received it in the mail yesterday, and I was really excited to try it. I have read all the reviews, and I was very curious. It made my hair so soft and easily detangled right on impact. I used it as a leave in and it felt so soft. I followed with the KCCC, and I didn't feel any crunch at all.I will definately purchase this again.
Not quite a "5 curl" product for me, but I still like it. I wanted to try a new leave-in for the summer, and since I love KCCC so much I thought it'd give it a try. I get a little bit of frizz when I use this, maybe because it's not quite moisturizing enough for me, but it does provide AMAZING slip.
Best detangler; excellent slip!!! I applied the Knot Today to soaking wet hair and WOW the detangling properties were amazing!!! However, after adding the Curling Custard and allowing my hair to air dry my hair started to feel a little dry as the day went on. For better results with 4a hair, it seems as though this leave-in/detangler may need to be layered over something else a tad bit heavier. My most stellar results for washNgo's thus far have been with 1) applying either Qhemet Biologics Burdock Root Butter Cream or Ouidad Moisture Lock Leave-in to soaking wet hair, 2) add Knot Today, 3) detangle and 4) sparingly add the Curling Custard. I end up with moistured, defined curls with nice hold and the ability to pull off 2nd day hair which is rare for me.
The best darn leave-in conditioner out there! My curls are frizz free, have a lot more definition, shine and just look healthier. Also it makes my hair feel heavier without weighing it down. On top of it I use it before straightening and my hair it makes them so shiny and no dry, split ends. One thing to mention you don’t need a lot of it, which makes it that much better.
My 3b hair loves this product! On the first use, my shower comb glided like silk through my hair. I follow the recommendation for tighter curls and use it to detangle in the shower, do NOT rinse, and use it as a leave-in conditioner (in one use!). I try not to towel dry too much and let kcnt do its job. My curls have never felt so soft and defined without additional product and I don’t buy separate conditioners for the shower and leave-in anymore. I use the shampoo too and love them both. Highly recommended!
I hated this product completely. Not only was it overpriced (because there's nothing special in it) and I had to go out of my way to even find it, but it also did nothing for my hair. No moisture, no coil definition, not even the detangling it claims to do so well. If I could give this a zero, I would because even the scent was unpleasantly cheap and artifical. This product was a complete waste of money--it didn't even work well as a shaving cream for my legs.
My hair LOVES this product. It leaves my hair moisturized and feeling soft all day long. This is the best product to own for anyone sporting a TWA!
so I just started my cg routine, I tried kcnt and I must say that I'm getting great results, but you have to use the kccc after to get the most effective results, I am 3b/3c btw...
Hair Type: 4b I have tried this product alone and in conjunction with the curling custard and I must say...I did not like it. It made my hair feel rough and I could not find the "slip" everyone was talking about who praised this product. I gave it 2 curls only because it works well with the curling custard and it did help to define my curls but it was not soft at all.
I love this conditioner! I only need a small amount to detangle my curls! A must have product! Much better than the Curls products and Miss Jessie's stuff I have purchased in the past. I am a loyal fan!
Superior detangler!! Melts knots like nobody's business. A MUST USE underneath the KCCC and works synergistically with it.
Follow the instructions carefully and you, will be amazed. My hair was a hot dry mess b4 this product. Definitely works better when hair is wet of course. First time, I applied when wet after co-washing it. It detangles wonderfully! I didn't even use a comb! I used my fingers! 2nd and 3rd day. I just spritz with water, then applied it and the KinkyCurly Pudding. The puddling gave it that extra gloss and it helped elongate my tight curls. is It's gonna be a while 'til I run out because a tablespoon amount is all you need if you have short to shoulder length hair. I used to have to glop a large amount of product to get it into shape. It's been 6 days since I've used it, and I haven't even made a dent! In fact after the 4th day, I didn't put any in. I just freshen it up with a spritz bottle full of Castor Oil, Distilled Water, and a couple drops of little fragrant oil because castor oil is stinky. My hair feels a little crunchy, but compared to what my hair felt and looked like several days ago, I take crunch anyday!
This leave in conditioner is fantastic. It leaves my hair soft and manageable and it really helps to define my curls. Sometimes I use it alone but I always use it under KCCC. I almost go into a panic when whole foods is out of this product. 3c/4a
Having tried a wide assortment of leave-in conditioners, Knot Today has become my #1. And used together with KC Curling Custard, it's about as good as it gets! I'm a 3b - fine corkscrews...it is truly effective and reliable -- and smells heavenly!
I actually wake up excited to use the Kinky Curly system!! Best curls ever. Last all day, but you have to use knot today with he custard. Oh and if you have other products in your hair it won't work so was them out with kinky curly come clean!!!! Don't try to get around it follow directions.
I LOVE IT! I find that for me a little goes a long way. its very moisturizing and my hair absorbs it well when smoothed in.
in my 4a/b hair - Best detangler I've ever used... but I haven't tried them all yet - smells great and your hair really doesn't break off... too bad you have to use so much of it
life saver, it made my hair easy to comb through and helps stretch and define my coils! LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT!!!
4b-c Hair. This product didn't work for me. Wish I hadn't spent the funds! Left a white flaky substance in my hair and did not define one single curl.
Light enough to not weigh my fine 3a curls down, but good at retaining moisture. When combined with KCCC, it is my HG.
it did nothing for my hair (4a/3c) and seemed to dry it out it also has a synthetic smell to it
I like it. I honestly can't say it's BETTER than Be Curly by Aveda. I've been using that since I started going natural. It's way cheaper and since I'm in love with the Kinky Curly custard I decided to stick with the same line.
I tried this product twice. Unfortunately, my hair was more tangled and dry than before I washed it. The good thing is there are now many products available for us curly girls. So, if one product line doesn't work for you there are others that will. :) I have been using the Deva Curl line and Wen lavender oil and LOVE it. So, good luck to all of you.
I honestly believe this product caused breakage for me. It left my hair so dry, hair was just breaking while I was combing through after I washed.
It really detangles my 3c/4a/4b hair with such silkiness! The only reason I didn't give it a 5 is because you usually have to use it with the come clean shampoo in order for it to be the most beneficial in detangling, at least that's what I have to do.
This is not the kind of leave in that I usually look for as I prefer a creamy texture, but OMG CAN THIS STUFF DETANGLE! It was recommended to me and I have recommended it in turn with great results. It definitely helped me through a rough point in my transitioning when the tangles became too much to bear.
I think this is a good conditioner. It does have a smooth and silky feeling to it. I used it as a leave-in conditioner and with kinky curly curling custard. Overall it smells great, but it isn't a "holy grail" product for me..
My hair type is a 4B. I love it. Can't live w/o it. Haven't tried many other leave in's, but this was one of the first and I love it! Detangles well. I would def. recommend this leave in.
I have fine, thin hair and it does not weigh down my hair at all. At first I thought the scent was too much but I guess I am used to it, it seems fresh to me.
This stuff is great. It is well worth the price. It did not do so well as a rise out conditioner. Maybe I was not suppose to try it that way, but on my damp or towel dried hair it was great as a leave-in conditioner. Completely detangled my mop head.
I like using this product to detangle my 3B/3C hair after shampooing and rinsing the conditioner out of my hair. I use wide tooth comb with plenty of water while in the shower and the comb slips through. My 4C friend also likes this product as well. It also smells great.

I love this stuff for the same reasons that everyone else does. Hands down the best detangler for curly hair.
This stuff is awesome. I use to use BioSilk and it left my hair feeling oily. I like everything about Kinky Curly the smell, the feel and the fact that you only have to use a very small amount, so the bottle lasts forever. My hair has had a smoother feel, less fly-aways, a rich look and it never has that oily look or feel.
I love this stuff! I'm transitioning and I use this product with all my styles. It untangles my hair and leaves it soft. WIN!
This stuff smells just as great as the kinky curly custard, and detangles very nicely with not as many "ouchies", as usual. It also makes your hair really soft.
I loove the way this smells. Great as a leave-in, regular conditioner and as a styler when I don't feel like using a gel. It defines curls and leaves them soft. It would be great if KC made a curling creme with most of these ingredients, then incorporated one or two more ingredients for hold.
I was bit skeptical about this product but after purchasing it I can't complain. I have 4b hair that drinks everything up, but this leaves my hair manageable and soft even after it DRIES. It's even better with a little coconut oil.
Too much product needed to acheive the desired look; way too expensive; will not be re-purchasing this product
This is the first leave-in that's worked for me for as long as I can remember. I bought it because after reading the reviews of KCCC, it seems like it would work best when paired with this. I actually needed a leave-in anyway, either they all have cones or don't do anything at all. I haven't used it as a regular conditioner yet, but it gives so much slip! Not much is needed at all, though I had to replace my bottle after I was about 1/4 of the way through my tub of KCCC. It has a light kind of cherry-almond smell that isn't strong, just pleasant. The consistency is also great, creamy but light and easy to spread and distribute. I'll be sticking with this conditioner for as long as they keep making it!
I have fine, soft, mainly 3b (some 3a and 3c) curls. KC products don't seem to be working for my hair. The KCCC was a disaster after various applications, which is how I ended up with the KT. This product is ok-ish. I have had better luck with a number of other leave-in and rinse-out conditioners. Disappointed that have almost-full tub of KCCC and almost full bottle of KT that can't use. KC need to make testers like Curl Junkie. I love Curl Junkie!
Excellent slip and conditioner! Does not leave build up and elongates curls beautifully! I use with curl keeper and Fantasia IC gel.
i use the Knot Today..i was using the Kccc, but replaced it with Ecostyler gel..I love to co wash my hair daily with v05 condtioner..the knot today works great with the ecostyler gel, so I will be using this condtioner with that gel.
For all the ladies out there with very kinky-curly hair, this product is a must-have! When I am not in the shower with rich-creamy conditioner in my hair, I use Knot Today to detangle my hair. I spritz my hair with my water and vegetable glycerin mix and then start to apply Knot Today in my hair and detangle it. I also use Knot Today as a great leave-in before applying my Fantasia IC gel in the mornings. It prevents dryness and makes my hair VERY easy to manage, define, and style. It is reasonably priced as well. What more can I say?
I am a new use of the kc line. This detangles well, smells good, and doesn't have silicones-obvious or hidden. My hair stays very hydrated for much longer with this and kccc.
this is the BEST leave-in EVER. i bought it because of the ratings and was not disappointed. i bought 2 bottles at whole foods. worth the price!! i am a frizzy 3a and this is sooo moisturizing and not greasy at all! love it!!!
This has been the best summer leave-in conditioner for me. With this 100 degree hot dry weather it is great! Lots of moisture and works with any product that I put over it. Big Love for this one.
I have fine soft 4 a/b hair & I tried this stuff twice ; once on a small patch of hair & the 2nd time a week later on my whole head to make sure I hadn't made mistakes.It was crunchy the first time & horrible the 2nd time .It made my hair hard, wiry & brittle & made the curls shrink up to the point where it COULD NOT be detangled. I had to wash it all out & then do a hot oil treatment to get my hair to feel normal again. The shampoo is good & the curling cream is great...I got some pretty little spiral curls...,but my hair cannot take Knot Today.It seems to be very astringent or something. From now on I use the curling cream ALONE or with a different leave in.
Works great as a leave-in detangler, but paired with the KCCC, I didn't get the great results I was expecting. Hoping pairing it with a stronger style agent will give better hold. But for what it is, it worked.
I love this stuff! I have 3c hair and have been told by my hairstylist over the years that I could not wash and wear my hair! When my stylist looked and felt my hair she said "I am loving the curls!" My hair is soft, smells good, and I can say goodbye to pressing combs! Hallelujah!!!!!
An excellent detangler, but not enough moisturizing benefit when used alone. Left my hair frizzy, dry, and parched as the Sahara. When used in conjunction with KCCC, though, is an excellent foundation product. Makes the CC glide on easier and they work together well for excellent curl definition. In addition, when used with the CC the custard balances it out to provide the much needed moisturizing effect. Will only purchase again as a companion product for the KCCC, but for days when I need a leave-in only or a leave-in to pair with another styler I'll use something else.
I really love this product. I have 4a/4b hair that is coily and this product worked beautifully. For my regimen i would have my stylist double strand twist my hair. Next throughout the course of the hairstlye life (2-3 weeks) i would have the shower water beat through my hair then apply the leave in (don't rinse). By the time the 4 week rolls around i just untwist my hair and rock a mean twist out. This product kept my hair soft and moisturized.
Tangles just melt away with this product. Leaves my hair soft. I do wish it provided more moisture but otherwise I'm happy with the product.
Won 5 curls because it makes my hair soft! So soft :) and moisturized... it works for now. I have extremely thick hair and I’ve only had it for about a week and I’ve already used 2/3 of the bottle:( Truth is since I used it, it's been a lot easier to comb through with my comb in the shower when I plan to deep condition. That first use drained about half of it. However, it is true that its detangling properties could be further improved upon. I love this product and will continue to use it, buy it and leave it in :)
This is the best product I've tried thus far! About 7 months ago, I cut off my mid-back length dreadlocs & decided to go natural. Two months into it I was SO fed up with the thickness of my unruly hair, that I chemically texturized it. Now that I'm better educated in haircare, I'm revisiting the natural thing again. This product is the ONLY thing that allows me to EASILY and PAINLESSLY comb thru the few inches of new growth. Plus, it keeps it all SO soft and surprisingly moisturized for the little amount used(even the damaged overprocessed parts). I use it as a leave-in (w/a bit of Curling Custard) & as an extra detangling boost with my regular co-wash condish. I literally can't stop touching my hair & it smells amazing! I also can't believe I'm down to a 2 step hair process now!
Kinky Curly Knot Today Conditioner is the best conditioner in the world! Knot Today may be the reason I am still natural. I was having a hard time getting even a wide tooth comb through my hair. Knot Today made detangling a snap and leaves it soft and moisturized. As long as Kinky Curly maintains their integrity and does not start tampering with the ingredients, I will be a life long customer.
My favorite Leave-In conditioner! I love the scent and how moisturized my hair feels! Works great in conjuction with the Curling Custard. It's light and doesn't leave buildup. Great product!
This is my FAVORITE leave in conditioner, bar none. It leaves my hair soft with no trace of heaviness.
I really like the knot today I think that it is a staple to the KCCC.I always use this with the kccc. Sometime when using you think that your hair is hard and crunchy it's really not it just looks that way. But after 3 and 4 days of wear your hair is very soft. Even when your not using your hair will still continue to be soft. You only have to use a little in connection with the kccc because if you use to much of both, It will leave a white sticky residue. But overall it is a great product.
this product was great with the KCCC...i nver tired it alone but im sure its just as good...it detangles so good...this stuff and KCCC is a miracle i never thought this day would come...it smells good too..great stuff!!!!
I like this product but it is not enough moisturizing on its own. Combined with the KCCC, I have great results.
This product was okay. I will definitely not be purchasing this product again. It would not fully absorb into my hair. I gave it 2 curls because it did smell good and made it soft.
I love the smell of this and it does make my hair supersoft. Only draw back is finding the right amount to aply too much and it leaves my hair on the lank side - feels weird when wet but once dry it's fine
When I first put this conditoner on my wet hair, I thought it was just like any other conditoner/detangler, but after I let it sit on my hair for about 5 minutes, I noticed in the mirror that my hair looked like it absorbed everything, my hair felt softer, and my curls looked plump, well hydrated. I have used other conditoners that it looked as if it sat on top of my hair, not being absorbed. Not this. I think I need to try it again to get a better feel of the product. But I also think that as I use it more, my hair will start to not be as dry and tangled. I think I will try other leave in detanglers on this website so I can make a better comparison
Works well with Kinky curly curling custard. However, so does my other leave in conditioners.
Great product used as a leave in. The comb glides through my wet hair without effort and the end result for me is lovely defined soft curls. I do however prefer using this with Kinky Curly Custard for optimum curl performance.
I am having great success with this product, it allows me to get 3rd and 4th day hair when used along with Curling Custard.
My hair is no longer super dry after using this leave-in after washings a for touch ups every other day. My hair is instantly silkened when I apply this and after using it for a few weeks my hair texture is smoother and I actually see what I would call curls! I didn't know my hair was so pretty after being called nappy all my life.
Fantastic product. Well worth the price. Great detangler and works best with the Kinky Curling Custard.
THIS IS A KEPPER! I love this product. After the first time that I bought this product I bought it twice afterwards and I intend to keep on buying it. After I co-washed and deep condition my hair, I then use this to help put the finishing touches on my defined curl! It provides a light hold without being heavy or taking a long time to dry. I don't even have to use the the Curling Custard any more.
This is an excellent leave-in conditioner. I have 3b, 3c, 4a One side is wavy, one side, the back, and top is curly, but the middle of my head is course. I have to use the Knot Today on the course section of my hair long with the KCCC. It works wonders. The only thing is my hair takes a long time to dry. Almost all day. Is also leaves my hair nice and soft. It moisturizes my hair and dries a little crunchy, but that comes out as soon as you crunch the hair. I use it faithfully.
I don't find it to be as moisturizing to my hair as I thought it would be. Also, its detangling properties could be slightly improved upon as well!
Fabulous! Anything that can actually soften and detangle my thick coils is great. Not to mention that its a leave-in that doesnt weigh my hair down..I love not having knots!!
This is definitely a replacement for my ABBA Nourishing Leave-On Moisturizer. It is so light, easy to distribute, detangling & moisturizing! And the scent is great too.
This is the greatest detangler ever. I love, love, love it. It left me with no tangles at all. It smells great too. Much better that the Curling Custard. I reccomend it for anyone with kinks or curls.
I want to review the Kinky Curly Come Clean Shampoo but don't know how since it is not listed so I am doing it here. I haven't tried the Knot Today Conditioner but I love the shampoo.I have very dry hair and wanted a sulfate free shampoo to use every day. I don't like shampooing every few days since my hair is thin and extremely frizzy and for some reason it gets really frizzy if I just use conditioner. Anyway, this shampoo smells wonderful, a little goes a long, long way and it makes my hair unbelievably soft and moisturized. I am Caucasin but my hair is 3a and fine. This shampoo is well worth the money. When I run out of my other conditioner I might try the Kinky Curly conditioner.
I used this today and have the best hair today. Great shine and softness. Nice smell - coconut-y with a hint of citrus. This stuff detangles the mess out of your hair. Great price too. I'm in love!
I didn't have very good luck using this under anything other than the Curling Custard. That said, underneath the KCCC I get soft, defined curls that last through the next day -- in fact, this is the only thing that'll give me 2nd-day hair. While Knot Today isn't very versatile, it is fantastic at what it was made to do.
I think the purchase of this leave-in is useless without the KCCC. It's moisturizing abilities are borderline. I think it would work great for finer haired curlies that don't require as much moisture or weight as opposed to a CG with thicker hair. Way too light. I felt that it was missing the one ingredient that it is known for not having. OIL!
This product is one of the few leave-ins that makes Kinky Curly Curling Custard work like a charm for me. It also works under other gels, but the true synergy is with KCCC. It's oil-free and gives me soft, moist, clumpy curls. It's like a moisture cushion for the Curling Custard.
Excellent detangler - even better than EMBC for detangling for me. This is a thinner conditioner which takes some getting used to. It doesn't have the slippery seaweedy feel that some would expect for a nice detangler, ut don't be fooled. This stuff melts knots and tangles. Appropriately named! Makes a nice leave in too as it is a lighter formula.
In my opinion, it takes forever to dry and even afterwards, hair is still frizzy. The worst thing is, that Curling custard. A waste of time and money. It left me with white flaky stuff. Will never buy it again.
I love this product. It allows my wide tooth comb to glide right through my usually hard-to-detangle hair. It also gives me a good bit of moisture, smells great, and boosts shine.
It's a good detangler. I tried it with the Curling Custard and think the Custard is a waste of time and money but I like Knot Today. And I too would only buy it again for the smell. I have moisturizers at home that provide the samw effect and I can get them at the local hair supply store instead of paying shipping and handling.
Its a good leave in, has a very slippery consistency and provides good slip to the hair. It works very well with the Curling Custard to aid in curl definition. When I tried it alone it worked well but was comparable to other leave ins I have tried. I gave it three curls for its slip and for how well it works with the custard. Oh yeah,it smells good too..If I purchase again that will be the only reason why.
