I won this  Speedy Recovery Banana Deep Conditioning Masque through a giveaway not to long and just tried it Monday. I have 4c hair and my hair always needs moisture. I've tried different deep conditioning products with zero to minimum success, with some of them not smelling so good. I applied this to my hair after washing it and let it sit for about 30 minutes.( I currently do not own a Hair Therapy Wrap, so I just used a shower cap with a towel wrapped around tightly.) Wondering why the  30 minutes? Well, let's just say I haven't deep conditioned  my hair in a very long time! When I rinsed it out, my hair was so soft, and smooth! I could literally run my hands through my hair and when detangling the comb glided right through my hair! After my hair had dried it was still soft and didn't feel as if it needed moisture! I will be using this product in the future and start back DC'ing since I've finally found a good one!

4C Hair: Dealing With Split Ends

Split ends is a hair dilemma that almost every one has or will experience,especially ones with 4c type hair. Our hair is more prone to getting split ends due to the tangles and knots that our hair easily can get. There are numerous of ways that split ends occur if it's from combing the hair the wrong way, the use of heat, or handling the hair toughly. If you're experiencing split ends, don't just let them stay-TRIM THEM! The longer you wait to do something about them the more they will rise up your hair shaft leading your hair to even more damage. Here are some ways to keep those split ends away:

-Detangle your hair while it's damp or completely wet with conditioner.
Don't try it on dry hair, this is one of the main reasons for split ends occurring!

-Avoid using to much heat on your hair. 
The more heat you use, the more damage you're likely to encounter.

-Always make sure to keep those ends moisturized! 
You can use a oil such as Castor or EVOO or a butter such as Shea Butter.

-Give your hair a break from the daily styling.
Try doing protective styles, this gives your hair a break and keeps those ends from splitting.

-Trim your ends whenever needed.
This saves you and your hair from unnecessary damage and keep those ends healthy.

-Deep Condition your hair weekly or at least once a month. 
This will help ensure that your hair shaft stays strong!

-Sleep with a satin or silk scarf (or pillowcase) when you go to bed!
This will help a lot, the cotton in your pillowcases can dry your hair out. Scarfs and pillowcases made with satin or silk doesn't "roughen" the hair up!

-Most importantly comb your hair with care!
Rough-handling your hair will definitely cause split ends!
Hopefully this will help someone out there!

Kinky Curly Knot Today Review

"KNOT TODAY  is a creamy herbal conditioner and detangler designed to smooth the cuticle and remove knots, snarls and tangles from thick curly textured hair.

After washing hair, apply KNOT TODAY TM generously and work through troubled areas with a wide tooth comb.Can be used as a regular rinse out conditioner for wavy hair or as a leave-in for thicker curlier hair types. An excellent product to use after removing braids and extensions."(Taken from Kinky-Curly.com)

First, before I start my review I want to give a big Thanks to the wonderful BMOR3Natural for providing me with this product to review!

The Review:
Let me just say I've always had high hopes for this product with all the rave that it has been getting from other naturals.

Price: $11.99

Organic mango extract, organic slipper elm, organic marshmallow root, organic lemongrass, cetyl alcohol, behentrimonium methosulfate, citric acid, phenoxyethanol and natural fragrance.
 Immediately after I received the KCKT I applied it to my hair!(4c to be exact) I was hooked to it immediately! This was the first time that I was able to apply a product to my hair without water and easily run my fingers through my hair without any hair getting tangled and it feeling moist! Another great thing about this product is the shine that I'm able to get from it. When I used the Knot Today for my twist-out, the twists came out so soft and shiny and unraveling them was not a problem what so ever. (And has officially became my first staple product!) So actually it can be used for detangling, leave-in conditioner, and styling! Everybody was complementing me on how moist and soft my hair looked and asking me what I used. When detangling my hair the come just runs through my hair like water, and even though I have 4c hair I get little curls/spirals when I put this product in with water! I can definitely tell the difference this product has had by the less amount of hair that's been falling in my sink!


Definitely will keep using this product for my hair! And another big thank you to BMOR3Natural for helping me experience the good benefits of this product!
