Kinky-Curly Knot Today

May 07, 2015 - A great light weight but effective leave in. Smooths the hair, and for me, helps to prepare it for any stylers I use. I use somewhere between a dime and a quarter sized amount for the length of my hair, around apl when wet. I use a wide tooth comb or denman to distribute, then scrunch out some water before adding stylers. My curls stay intact even after having some water scrunched out, which is what I require of a leave in, but once my hair's dry it's soft and bouncy, not weighed down. To top it all off, it smells light, fruity and refreshing, but the fragrance doesn't hang around all day irritating me. (Hair properties: medium coarse, normal porosity and elasticity, fairly high density.)

Tresemme Naturals Nourishing Moisture Conditioner

May 07, 2015 - This is a decent all-purpose workhorse of a conditioner. You can use it as a co-wash, rinse out, and leave in, but it isn't my favorite in any of these categories. Its strength lies in its versatility. I like the slip, I just add a bit more water to my hair as I'm detangling with it. The fragrance, isn't bad necessarily, but you know those fragrances that drive you nuts after a while till you're forced to take a break? Also, in my hair at least, the fragrance lasts way too long. I don't want to smell conditioner all day long. That being said, I live in Canada and cheap readily available silicone free conditioners are hard to find here, so I'll probably end up repurchasing. (I'm halfway through my second bottle. (Hair properties: medium coarse, normal porosity and elasticity, fairly high density.)

Giovanni 50/50 Balanced Shampoo

May 07, 2015 - This spreads through hair easily, rinses out easily, and leaves hair feeling clean, though a bit dry. I never shampoo without using a conditioner afterwords though, and my hair always feels great once I've finished conditioning. I co-wash most of the time, and use this about twice a month.

Le Salon Hair & Spa - Kitchener, Ontario, Canada

Jun 30, 2015 -

This was my first Deva cut, and it turned out great. I told her I didn't want to reduce the length much, but wanted some layering to enhance the curl, and that's exactly what she did. My hair's been super easy to style since the cut 2 months ago, and I've gotten a ton of positive feedback. I also thought the price was fair for our area, especially considering this is the best cut I've ever had.
