I'm reviewing together because nothing works as well for me with [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Kinky-Curly-Curling-Custard-p-778.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=kinkycurly-curling-custard]KCCC[/buylink] as KT, although a couple of leave-ins come close.

Knot Today - a cloudy lotiony leave in, easy to apply, slippery and detangling, moisturizing yet oil-free. Very little fragrance, a big plus. For my entire head I use about 3 tsp. Doesn't reduce volume, and starts the clumping process nicely. Also works well with other gels (Alagio, AOMM, Angell). But with KT under [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Kinky-Curly-Curling-Custard-p-778.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=kinkycurly-curling-custard]KCCC[/buylink], the end result adds bounce, smoothness and silkiness to my cottony, fine, easily frizzed 4a hair that no other combo does. KT is the Curling Custard's secret sauce.

Ingredients: Mango fruit extract, slippery elm, marshmallow root, lemongrass, cetyl alcohol, behentrimonium methosulfate, citric acid, phenoxyethanol and natural fragrance.
Curling Custard - What can I say? I dropped this product a year ago now I'm in love again. But it' a threesome sort of love -- me, KT and [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Kinky-Curly-Curling-Custard-p-778.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=kinkycurly-curling-custard]KCCC[/buylink]. [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Kinky-Curly-Curling-Custard-p-778.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=kinkycurly-curling-custard]KCCC[/buylink] is still gloppy and the jar is an awkward container. It still goes on with a rubbery feeling. It's still volume reducing and sticky if you don't evenly distribute it. It doesn't play well with many leave-ins.

But as long as I'm using it over Knot Today, the resiliency and silkiness of my hair after it dries is unmatched by anything else I have used, with great definition from root to end, even after scuncing and sleeping on it. That silky moist feeling lasts to the next day too. Other curlies report success with Shea Moisture Sheabutter leave in under [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Kinky-Curly-Curling-Custard-p-778.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=kinkycurly-curling-custard]KCCC[/buylink]. I've tried using it over Roberg Craig, Beauty without Cruelty, Paul Mitchell the Conditioner, Aveda Elixir and Suave Toasted Vanilla & Sugar. Suave comes close as a leave in but I lose some of the silky feeling and bounce.

Ingredients;botanical infusion of water, horsetail, chamomile, nettle and marshmallow, organic aloe vera juice, agave nectar extract, tocopheryl acetate (vitamin e), pectic, citric acid, potassium sorbate and natural fragrance

Heaven... I'm in heaven,
And my heart beats so that I can hardly speak.
And I seem to find the happiness I seek.....

Playing with my hair is a hobby. Fluffy, fine natural 4a. Goal= Healthy, beautiful hair that retains its length.
Hear that crash? It's me falling off the CG wagon.
