She constantly protective styles her hair while I wear mine out all the time. Her leave in recipe, at best, was obvious and average, since I have know many ladies on this board to add AV juice and/or an oil to their product way before she did a video on it. We clearly have two different ways to care for our hair, and I have no use for her whatsoever, as I'm sure she has no use for me. And yet, I still don't see how it's helpful or warranted to say she is "acting bad" yet still has success. Sure, she gets an attitude, but you wanna know why? YT subscribers can be idiots; it'd be trying to anyone. I still wish her the best.

Meh, since the times article was on three ladies, I wish them all luck. I try very hard not to become jealous of anyone who is doing the durn thing...and all three of those ladies, plus a lot more on YT are doing the durn thing. KT is sharp and she appears to have a strong drive to succeed. -- and it is what it is. I don't know her personally, so I can't judge her overall personality based on YT.

I've never been an envious person so I don't understand it when people envy others .

I haven't watched many of her videos but I listened to her on a radio interview with Chicoro and she seemed really humble and down to earth.
I don't care for KT, but I wish her no harm. I think she feeds a lot of the negativity sent her way...based on her video comments (spoken and written). Some of her commentary was unnecessary and made her look petty and immature. She would get much more respect, from those of us not caught up, if she would keep it movin', and stop doing the "let me tell y'all haters the news" type intros. Perhaps she's moved on...I wouldn't know.

She's got lots of "sheeple", and that has more to do with the tendency of human beings to deify other human beings (she's a black woman, with Type 4 hair, and she's managed to grow it longer than average, and that alone makes her worship-worthy for those who haven't been able to realize their dream of having long hair), than it has to do with her being innovative. She's polished, and she's got mad video editing skills (or somebody does). But the info she's provided is not new. It's information anybody can find, if they are motivated enough to research.

Secondly, I don't have to like KT, and that doesn't mean I'm "hatin" on her success. The video she made with the drawing on hair, and how it grows was the best thing she's ever done, imo. But the rest? Nope...the presentation is top notch, which confirms that it's not always what's presented, it's how it's presented.

Believe you me, we all get "dealt with" in life, when our heads get too big, and our attitudes too stank. Kim Love is no exception. So, I'm careful about judging whether or not someone is worthy of "success".

Anyway, sounds like good news and congrats to her. I can never be envious since I don't know Kim apart from what I see on YT. Moreover, she's worked hard and she is dispelling the myth, (along with many other naturals on YT and this board) that type 4 hair can and does grow.
Her vids are very informative, although I couldn't care less for PH in products. Never was a subscriber, though. I prefer a little entertainment/personality and some of her videos come off as seminar lectures. Just me though, but her editing's impressive and I like her growth progress vids.
While I don't agree with some of her pointers, her info and techniques (especially her wash routine) is very resourceful and I've implemented bits and pieces in my own routine.

Kimmaytube is okay. She may have a condescending tone in her videos but she puts out good information (though not new information). I think her success is great and great for the natural hair community. I am anticipating her product line, as far as pricing, ingredients and quality.
I agree with others on not caring for her "youtube personality"( as someone said-- I don't know her personally) but not wishing her failure. She is a smart woman who was able to capitalize on those who rely on her for information. The fact that people acted like they were having orgasms about her giving them a "free recipe" for a souped up leave-in speaks volumes. She built up this fan base, and she will surely reap the benefits from her line. I imagine that she will be able to get to the status of Carol's Daughter ( cuz you know she is going to go commercial--I highly doubt she will go the Oyin or QB route)sooner than later. Ambition and determination will get you very far, no matter how poorly people may view your disposition.
I like KT, for more reasons than one. I like that she knows to to gain from the interest in her hair. I like that she is very informative and she gives a lot of info in one place with thought and creativity to help people understand and I love her editing skills, they will make me want to watch her vids. I don't have anything against her. I don't necessarily use her practices with my hair but I still like to watch her.

I agree with Elle, I know also just from having a few subscribers how the comments can test you sometimes... so I can only imagine from the amount of people who dislike her and like to make it known on her YT comments.

I don't understand how the way she talks in her videos is a problem? She speaks well, and talks similarly to what you would see in an infomercial. Is that wrong? I don't think so. Yea, it may come off more scripted/robotic but it sure beats a bunch of "whatever" and "umm." I try my best to not use those fillers. I subscribe to her, as well as a few others. I watch about half of what the people I subscribe to put out so everyone is rather on the same equal plain. I wish everyone success regardless of whether they are the bees knees or someone I can do without. Hating is so unbecoming.

^ Cosign. As far as her voice, I remember she stated in one particular video of hers that the reason why she over-enunciated was because she wanted the caption function to pick up her words because she has alot of foreign watchers who's English isn't too good.
I don't really watch KT now but she was the first person I came across that gave me info in helping me take better care of my hair. I don't understand why one of the complaints about her is that she isn't saying anything new though? Unless she said the info she was stating in her video's was new then I'd be giving her the side eye. But to my knowledge she hasn't so I don't see why this is a criticism with her. I don't see any of the other popular "Hair Guru's" getting that criticism thrown their way and their not saying anything groundbreaking about hair either. On the real, everything that needs to be said about our hair has been pretty much said. And I see nothing wrong with Youtube folk, whether it be KT or Nikkimae, etc. passing on this knowledge. Like Google, Youtube gets alot of hits daily around the globe. I think it's nice that not only on natural hair websites and forums, that information about natural hair is also on Youtube.
I don't post in alot of natural hair forums but I do lurk, and the Kimmaytube hate is getting tired. I know of one particular forum where sometimes their would be a thread about the latest video she posted up and folk will go up in their and throw shade for the umpteeth time til sometimes it would get locked.

Her voice is annoying. I hate the way she talks too. I don't dislike her for it tho. I don't wish her success or failure either in her business ventures. I just think the girl is crazy.
