Oh, okay, so the products themselves aren't exactly what I perceived them to be then... I'm pretty new to this, in all honesty.

What replacement products would you recommend then? I think I have Kinky-Curly Knot Today under my sink actually from a while ago, would that be a good product to use? I also have coconut oil, I'll do a soak tonight~

My hair properties should be attached in my signature, by the way, if that helps at all. Thank you so much for helping me, I feel pretty lost when it comes to caring for my wavy/curly hair.

Agree with Samanthascurlz, Knot Today is a detangler not a true leave in conditioner - no oils, few cationic surfactants or fatty alcohols. You might try either of your other creamy conditioners (Shea Moisture or V05) as a leave in, see how they work out before making another purchase.

I highly recommend reading your way through all the 'curl chemist' articles here on NC, also the Natural Haven blog, these will help you understand ingredients and products.
