I think this leave-in is supposed to add moisture and close the cuticle of the hair. I break it down in my mind like this:
kckt - detangling/moisture factor
aloe vera juice - more moisture, ph balance same as hair to close cuticle
jojoba oil - is just like the natural oils in your scalp. if you are like me, the first 1/2 inch of your hair growing out of your scalp is fab - natural oils reach that part easily. jojoba oil will coat and moisturize the rest of your hair.
castor oil - heavy moisture plus sealing

After using this a couple times I am going to back off the extra stuff i used to put in and will adjust the amount I do. I don't need as much now.

Hope this helps!!!

I made this leave-in yesterday after reading all the post. I did a henna/indigo treatment Sunday and I guess I used to much amla powder as my acid because my scalp had a funky burning/itching sensation during and after the treatment.

Well since kimmay's leave-in is ph balanced I decided to give it a shot to see if it would help balance my buring scap and it did. I followed her diretions and applied it after I washed & conditioned my hair with Giovanni Smooth as Silk conditioner. After I rinsed it out I applied the homemade leave-in and did a twist-n-curl. Woke up this morning with soft and shinny hair and thank the good Lord no burning. I still have the itches, but I will take that any day over all that darn burning. Shout out to kimmay!

Plus, one batch made enough for about 4 applications & since I can use any condtioner I don't have to order anything online. I'm trying to get away from online products because shipping & handeling is ridiculous. I just happening to have the knot today leave-in since I'm a pj and wanted to try it any. Luckily, I didn't give it away because it didn't work for me alone.

I have been using Kimmaytube's leave-in mixture religiously for the past month and I am so pleased with the consistent results. I measure in tbsp & tsp since I don't have a scale and do apply Ecostyler over it if I need more hold...I'm loving it.

This style was done using the leave-in mixture and Ecostyler on a twistout.

I hope to try it when I grab some aloe vera jelly next time im in vitamin shoppe or whole foods! I have some EVCO ive been infusing for a few weeks to mix with aloe vera jelly to put on my scalp but Im glad I can use it on my whole hair! I will probably use KBB hair milk as the creamy base but im not a fan of the smell of castor oil but I might add it if the smell isnt pronounced!

Talisa..just an FYI, I tried to mix the KBB hair milk with it and it just wasn't the same as when I used the KCKT. Honestly, I LOVE KBB hair milk and it was my holy grail until I found this recipe (it's actually still my backup), but I must say, mixing these ingredients into it, didn't give me the results...KBB was better left using as is. I'd definitely try the mix out with KBB and then KCKT if you're interesting in seeing if you can tell the difference as well...can't hurt. BUT I definitely think you'll prefer it with the KCKT.

Please keep me posted on your thoughts once you try them. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

ETA: About the castor oil smell, IMO, you can't smell it once you mix everything together...it still smells like the KCKT or I guess whatever other condish you use. HTH [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Hey CurlyChef...She mentions in the comments section of her vid I think that it could last 3-4 days so you could refrigerate the leftovers if you plan to restyle your hair within that timeframe.

Hi CurlyKye! Thank you for the advice, I just now saw it and I have aready made the mix! I put the mix in my hair about 40min ago with the KBB hair milk, castor oil, lily of the desert aloe vera gel (so it wont be to runny) and the infused coconut oil. The mix actually turned out pretty well! Your 100% right about the castor oil, I was surprised that i didnt smell it and even added a tad bit more hehe. I gave away my knot today to my cousin to use on her toddler a month ago and I felt like using up my hair milk but when all my product runs out, ill hit up the knot today again in the future!

Thanks! I used it for about 5 days after. It was wrapped up and seemed fine but my hair isn't nearly as long as hers and I didn't want to waste it. Hopefully I didn't cause any problems. I haven't noticed any though.

I just brought the products online and I am waiting for their arrival. I did support Kimmaytube by going on her website www.luvnaturals.com and purchased her PH strips and they are great! I will soon buy more from her. Ladies, please support her business by going to the website. It only took 2 days for arrival and she PERSONALLY wrote a letter to me and the package that she placed it in was soooooo classy.

Once I recieve my products in the mail, I will give a review on her MIX. I can't wait!

I put the mix in my hair last night and today it feels soft (its normally soft and smooth) but not as moisturized at I thought it would be!! I used KBB hair milk btw so that might have an impact on the results. Tonight im going to add more aloe vera and coconut oil to my remainder and try again on my next batch.

Congratulations on being newly natural aj72crane!!

Ladies...

Check this out. I mixed the KT Leave-in Conditioner before I co-washed my hair. I would say it stayed in the refrigerator about 10 no more than 15 minutes.

So after I detangled I applied the KT Leave-in conditioner ~ which by then is COLD!!! Can I say my curls were popin all over the place.

So, now I have a question...do you think I can do a washNgo with just the KT leave-in?

At least for me I can tell a major difference in dryness. I was moisturizing three times a day and now I may add a little just to refreshen my curls but my hair is so soft and moisturized for 2-3 days. I can never keep a style more than day 3 anyway..

@CurlyChefRobin - when you say you were moisturizing 3x a day, what did you use and how? Did you do spritzer or actually put some kind cream based moisturizer in.

Hi Natualin - I was using a water based creme moisturizer and I would seal with EVOO. I only used the EVOO once a day though (In the evening before bed). The moisturizer had cones in it and I wanted to see how well my hair did without them so once I used up that bottle I wanted to try this. It is working very well!!!

Uh oh, I made 2 batches last week and refrigerated them. I hope they last longer than 5 days! Yikes. That's too expensive to break down so quickly!
