They both smell like Recoil. I thought the shampoo was a bit drying and the conditioner was ok. It detangled but wasn't overly moisturizing. Neither did anything special for my hair or enhanced curl. I was glad I tried the sample packs and didn't purchase them. Not the worst products I've tried but not worth purchasing to me.

Have you tried the KCKT or Oyin Honey Hemp conditioners? They both really enhance curl for me and leave my hair soft.

Kinky Curly Knot Today Conditioner.

I can use the KCKT and Oyin both as rinse-out and leave-in conditioners.

I use both & they're without silicone, drying alcohol, mineral oil/petroleum & beeswax, & any of the inorganic preservatives (paraben & -zone) to my knowledge. I believe the products are considered organic/natural. They're very good. I love the light consistency, the scent & the moisturizing. If I didn't have so many other leave-in conditioners to use up, I'd use nothing but KCKT & OHH.
o no im sorry i didnt make that clear i was talking about the recoil shampoo and conditioner...

I am not sure of the Curl Activating products, but do remember that there are non-sulfate AG shampoo and conditioners that have come out quite recently. I believe they are marketed as colour care products (called Colour Savour).

I think since it's not CG, not many ppl have tried it. If you want a general review (non CG, tho), you might try makeupalley.com which might have a review of it.
