THE REVIEW

This conditioner was gifted to me by KayJay over at Refined& Polished who has been a KBN fan since day one.  On her wedding day, KBN was the one and only brand used from start to finish. Until now, I had not tried any KBN products on my own hair. #RealTalk? I’m mad I waited this long!

The scent of this conditioner is similar to Bee Mine’s Bee-u-ti-ful deep conditioner. It’s a scent that I just can’t put my finger on to specify what it smells like in nature. For me it wasn’t completely pleasant (though, not offensive and mild), but once I put on a plastic cap and therapy wrap, the scent was gone and I was able to overnight DC without any disturbances from the scent.

The texture is fairly thick for an aloe-based product, easily squeezed from the bottle, and distributes nicely. When applied to my slightly damp, freshly shampooed hair — INSTANT SLIP! This is an excellent detanlging conditioner. Once saturated with product, my wide-tooth comb slid right through each of the 4 sections. It was a breeze! The conditioner seemed to come to a slight lather and then disappeared into my strands when applied. I apply conditioner with a very heavy hand, yet I probably will be able to get 5 more uses out of this 12oz bottle.

Rinsing was a breeze.  No residue.  I was left with clean, soft, moisturized hair, and popping curls. Another great benefit of this conditioner is the pH which is labeled right on the bottle.  No guess work.  The pH of 4.5-5.0 closes the cuticles resulting in smooth, static-free hair.

I find Koils by Nature CocoAloe Ultra-Moisturizing Deep Conditioner to be similar to Karen’s Body Beautiful Luscious Locks Moisturizing Mask based on texture, performance, and results — though do I think KBN performed slightly better, as my hair was more moisturized. Also, the fact that KBN’s product is less expensive and you receive more ounces, it is thee hands down WINNER! For my texture and length (grazing BSL), I estimate a total of 6 uses out of this bottle — that is approximately $3 per use (6) as compared to KBB’s $6.25 per use (4).

Overall, this conditioner is a winner!  I hear KBN is not stingy with the frequency of sales and is quite generous with the percentage off as well. I will be purchasing this conditioner and a few other items during the next sale. KBN –Let’s do this!

What KBN product is your fav?

This is the most intensive moisturizing skin cream available to combat the driest of dry skin!“  is what the label says — I followed up my deep conditioning session with this skin cream.  Honey! This stuff is paving its way onto my holy grail list.  More on what this is and what it did in a later post.

You mentioned that u used a plastic cap and a therapy wrap to deep condition overnight. What is a therapy cap? I will have to try this product. Thanks for the info

Its terrycloth which had heat packs (microwave) inserted. This helps the conditioner to penetrate with moist heat. I’ve added a hyperlink in the original post.

Dang it, another product to try. I really wish these products were sold somewhere in stores. I have been wanting to try KBB forever but haven’t because I hate ordering on line, it seem like it takes FOREVER for them to come!

I guess the next time I am in online shop mode, I will try both tho.

Lol, ok bad hinting job on my part. Look at the first initial of each word for the product you’re talking about. I would say the company name, but that’s going to give it away.

yah…I did that. I’m still clueless lol. The first 2 are correct, but I’m unsure of all the extra letters.
