Well time will tell and reviews will tell also whether she indeed is committed to quality products and improving these issues but I won't be spending extra money to test that theory out anytime soon until I see reviews! Because ain't no knot sauce gonna clear up a knot on your head god forbid if you get an infection from putting an unclean product in your head.

What excuse is there for her to have removed the FB complaint? None. She's "sincerely sorry" this time because she's watching this topic and trying to do damage control. Two people on NC had hair in their order.....of course shes going to "genuinely be sorry". The fact that she removed the comment and accused you of not telling the truth is evident she's not too "sorry". Her excuse is not even a valid one. If you have assistants handleing products with loose hair....YOU as the business owner clearly are not making sure your facility/kitchen/envionment in which you prepare/package products is clean. Period. What boss (granted she's even telling the truth about her "assistants") throws their employees under the bus to a customer? Fail number 3. You as the customer should not have even known anything about that. She should have just immediately apologized and fixed it. Her responding on here to claim you weren't telling the truth is also a fail. People lie..pics dont. You did her a service by not reporting her to the FDA or the BBB. She needs to take a bite of humble pie. Forreal. A person who doesn't see the value in putting a baseball cap on to prevent their hair from getting in some oil...is probably the same person that doesn't value sanitizing their area. You have to see through the smoke with some of these businesses...and the whole "da assistants did it!!!11" story is getting old. Cream & Coco and Soultanicals must have the same assistants...smh. I think you should report her. I'm just being real. Not because of the hair THAT is not even (imo) the heavy issue here...it's the way she tried to cover it up... because she CLEARLY had no intention of acknowledging or rectifying this issue prior to you calling her out. There is a difference between being sorry for stealing the cookie and being sorry you got caught.

I hate to see the type of customer service someone who is NOT a part of a hair care board would have received if this had happened to them.

but,

I will say, since then she has reached out to me, offered a replacememt product, and guaranteed me that she's making the necessary changes and is implementing quality control standards for her assistants throughout the product making process. But.... Loveme has made the most excellent points.

I've finished my bottle now, so I gave it a fair go. The only time I liked the results was when it was mixed with other conditioners and/or honey and olive oil. Also it is WAY too thick to be in a bottle!
Products in current rotation:

Terressentials Pure Earth Mud Wash; Elucence MBC (now really just for cowashing, leg shaving or emergencies); Curl Junkie: Repair Me, Deep Fix, Curl Rehab; AOHSR (retiring); Oyin Handmade: Honey Hemp, Hair Dew, J&B; Qhemet Biologics: BRBC (retiring- prefer Oyin HD), AOHC, OHHB; Jojoba Oil for scalp; Castor Oil or Shea butter to seal; Henna & Ayurvedic pastes when I can be bothered.

Still searching for the perfect stylers, but loving CJ CIAB over everything so far
Just ordered from soultanicals the kink drink and knot sauce. They same slow but the ingredients look great and they had a sale. Eventually I will sell my own products.
I AM STILL WAITING ON MY BLACK FRIDAY ORDER! NEVVVVER AGAIN.

Never expect to receive your items quickly from a small company during the holidays....it's just the nature of the beast. They should have put this information on the front page of their site.

Yes I saw that. But checking their FB page earlier today I saw that people who ordered even well before that were still waiting on their orders. I'll wait to see if it gets shipped before the new year.
Sadly the knot sauce and hair sorrel kink drink was a complete disappointment! They both dried out my hair! The spray top stop working after one use, burned my scalp and it felt warm like the feeling you get if you use ACV. Knot sauce gave me nooo moisture none. I will never by full sizes again I am going to sample a lot now. Basically $30 down the drain. I am so mad what a waste.
