I finally decided to take the plunge and purchase one of the natural girl’s favourites, Kinky Curly Knot Today.  I’ve heard a lot about this product and this line.  I currently use their Come Clean cleanser, which works great as it cleanses without drying my hair out.  A lot of  people use this product as a deep conditioner and a moisturizing detangler.

Here’s what the product says:

“… This creamy herbal conditioner is enriched with botanical extracts and is designed to smooth the cuticle and to remove knots, snarls and tangles from thick curly hair.”

This is a cruelty-free, organic, nourishing concoction in a bottle!!!  I love this product.  I think it runs neck and neck with my all time favourite, Oyin’s Honey Hemp Conditioner.  The ingredients list reads like a who’s who of wholesome, natural hair products:

  • Organic mango fruit extract – naturally occurring,used for conditioning properties
  • Organic slippery elm – slippery!! great detangling agent
  • Organic marshmallow root – conditioner and detangler
  • Organic lemongrass – adds shine to hair and anti-microbial
  • cetyl alcohol – it’s an alcohol, but it’s among other things, an emollient, which softens and smoothes hair and skin
  • Behentrimonium methosulphate – very mild compound which has superior detangling properties
  • citric acid – natural preservative
  • phenoxyethanol – organic antibacterial
  • natural fragrance

This product is worth the $$$$, it made detangling with a wide-tooth comb a breeze and added moisture to my hair.  My hair was super smooth afterwards.  Another good thing about this product, it’s also a leave-in conditioner.  So after washing with the Come Clean and detangling with the Knot Today, I rinsed and added a little bit of the Knot Today again.  This product helped keep my coils defined.

The only downside, is the price.  At about $12 for an 8 oz. bottle, it’s pricey, but for me it’s worth it.

This will be in rotation, but I think I’ll use it every 2 weeks and use my Aubrey Organics in between for moisture.

Overall Grade: A!

Knot Today is sold at Body Beautiful on D’Avenue in Trinidad & at Ricky’s in New York and Whole Foods.
