Knotty Boy Tightening Gel for Dreadlocks

GreatcurlsGreatcurls Posts: 1,782Registered Users
This is a potent product! Upon contact with my hair, it defines and sets my curls. I give this product 5 curls because a small amount is all you need, and the definition lasts a while.

It can cause your hair to be dry, if your hair is slightly dry to very dry, so you will need to apply a moisturizing leave-in first. And, only use a little bit of Knotty Boy Gel, such as a half to a whole thumb nail size per section, no matter how thick or prone your hair is to frizz, otherwise you will experience dry hair and flakes. For me, using a leave-in or oil afterward took a while to get the crunch out versus using it prior. If you don't want the crunch, definitely use a moisturizing leave-in or oil first.

This is the product recommended for very humid areas. I plan on purchasing a small jar of this product for the spring or whenever it becomes very humid--92% and higher.

    Type: 3a fine & dense,with normal porosity, terrible product junkie
    ROUTINE: LI, enhancer, gel, plop with Curlease towel, serum product (either CIAB or Gel-les'c), clip & diffuse.
    Too many favourite products to list ... I finally have my routine that works and alot of products to choose from. My product stash is huge, but well loved !!!

    so could this be used by people like me with looser curl? would it be a curl enhancer or will it just stick your curls together?

    Ondulee,

    This product can be used by people with a looser curl. It washes out easily as well. For me, it kept my curls clumped together instead of being a curl enhancer.

    There is a thread about it on NC.
