KCKT vs. Shea Moisture Raw Shea Butter Detangler? Thoughts+Video

This video is not of me, but one I found on youtube comparing and contrasting the two leave in detanglers: 23: Is there a difference? Shea Moisture vs Kinky-Curly Knot Today - YouTube

Now, the video is almost 20 minutes long, so if you dont have time to watch (which I def reccomend doing,) here is the sum up of what she said:

Both are the same price, both have the same amount of slip, KCKT smells like vanilla or something, Shea moisture smells like all of the raw shea butter line products. Both products cost the same amount of money. KCKT never goes on sale, Shea moisture always has Bogo 50% off sales. Shea moisture was heavier than KCKT, but still very similar in consistency, and shea moiture also gave her more moisture. So at the end of the say, she chose shea moisture.

What do you guys think? Have you tried both? Compare and contrast here. Do you think the shea moisture would work with the curling custard? Have you tried the combo? Talk it out here guys! I'm curious!
I use the yucca line milk from Shea moisture as well as KCKT. I agree with everything except that KCKT smells like pineapple to me. I use the SM when I feel I need a little more moisture, and the KCKT when I don't necessarily need the moisture but always use a LI to mix my oil in for sealing. I do think the KCKT has better slip for detangling.

Also, I have never found that the custard doesn't play well with whatever other products I've used. So either should work!

The makers of KCCC claim that it won't play nice with oils, butters, etc. But I've found that this is sometimes not the case. If you want to try KCCC with something other than KCKT, you can try blending a bit of each together in your hand before applying to your hair. If they turn into weird white chunks when mixed together, then you know they won't work! I use huge amounts of condish, and haven't found that KCCC has a problem with any of them, but I haven't tried this particular SM product yet. If you do try it, please let us all know if it works!
