I received this product after meeting the creators of TréLuxe at a natural hair expo. Untie the knot is a leave in conditioner that can be used as a light conditioning treatment or as a daily leave-in conditioner. I really liked the ingredients list and was excited to check out this product. You can tell that Kiprono & Cortney have really done their research and have taken note as to what ingredients perform really well with natural hair. The key to using this product line which was repeated to me several times was to use this product with water on wet or damp hair.
I used this product several times on its own, with other products in this line and with other products I use regularly. There was only one time this product disappointed me and this was when I used it on dry hair. When used along on dry hair my hair had a strange coated feeling and was not moisturized. My bad, Cortney told me to always use with water and I did not listen. The product performs fine as a light moisturizer or leave-in. It is not a styler, it is not a sealer, and it doesn’t pretend to be. This product does contain coconut oil as the second ingredient as well as other proteins, so if you are protein sensitive use your best judgement here, I had no problems with this product.
5 Things I Liked About This Product:
- Nice light smell.
- Light moisturizer does not contain shea butter. I like my leave in to be a leave in and not double as a heavy moisturizer. These work the best for me.
- The product contains proteins but is not packed down so it was gentle enough for my protein sensitive hair .
- I love that the product is in a pump bottle for easy distribution. I only use a few pumps to moisturize my whole head.
- Labels are water resistant and have not peeled or faded after sitting in my shower for over a month.
Overall this is a good product. I don’t have a problem finding good leave-in conditioners, I have several in my arsenal that work well. If you are looking for a leave-in with light protein I would suggest you check out this product. I also tried the product as a detangler which was not a pleasant experience, I would not suggest it for use a detangler.
