Deal or No Deal

SUBJECT: Hi

I thought I would drop you line and tell you what my experience was with your products.  Absolutely love the moisture.  Saturday I wore my hair out and just looked stunning.  My hair is very thick so I think I had to use a little more product to get the effect I wanted.  On Sunday I spritzed my hair and added more Curling Custard.  I put my hair up in a afro puff it was just too cute.  The amazing thing that your products do for my hair is maintain the moisture and when you touch your hair it doesn't feel gooey!!!  My son (who is 15) was oohing and ahhhing over my hair.

This is defintely a keeper and I have already ordered the Spiral Spritz and the Knot Today conditioner which is another wonderful product and the ingredients and smell.

Peace and blessings,
Toni

SUBJECT: My hair thanks you!

I wanted to tell you how much I love your products. I was skeptical at first because nothing has really worked for me. My hair is kinky, curly, bushy, dry, thirsty, frizzy... all of that. I keep wanting to grow it and get to a point where I cut it all off about every 2 years out of frustration. I was considering cutting it off again and ordered your products and now suddenly I am getting comments on my hair, but more importantly I actually like my hair! I have been wearing it natural for about 6 years and this is the first time I really like it. Thank you so much, I hope to always be able to get your products!

Hey Shelley,

I just tried the "Knot Today" and I love it! It's awesome, as is the "Curling Custard"!

SUBJECT: Transitioning Hair

I am transitioning and was having a problem where the two textures met. Last night, I applied the Knot Today conditioner/detangler and my hair went from hard to comb to easy to comb. Then, I applied the Curling Custard. My natural waves and shine came through. I was amazed that my hair did not shrink, it was shiny and moisturized all day. I couldn't keep my hands out of my hair!!!! I love your product line, and I will spread the good word.

Thanks,

Shelia Edwards
SUBJECT: Thank You

I was hesitant about ordering- just worried about everything stated regarding the performance of your products being a scam. I am so pleased and excited to finally find something that adds the moisture my hair needs without all the other horrible side effects- sticky, hard or unpleasant smelling hair. I am sure I will be a regular customer.

Many thanks for your products. They are fabulous!!!

SUBJECT: Curling Custard

One quick question...I would like a little more volume. Any hints? I currently put the product on leaning forward, scrunch and then diffuse.

I LOVE your products! I've never had spirals like it do now!

A great product line....I can't say enough positive things about it!

SUBJECT: A MILLION THANK YOUS!

I am in love with the Curling Custard and the results I get by using it. My hair is shiny and you can actually see the length of my natural hair. It does not have anywhere near as much shrinkage as it does as when I use other products. Thank you for making this wonderful product! You have a customer for life!

SUBJECT: Knot Today Review

Hi there,
I received the products last night and immediately jumped into the shower! I rinsed my hair and applied the Knot Today. The scent is INCREDIBLE!!!! And it detangles wonderfully. My only complaint is that I wish it were thicker. I applied them to my hair and WOW! My curls looked the best they have ever looked & and I have been natural for 3 YEARS!!

This morning, because I wished the leave in were thicker, I applied some of my trusty MOP leave in on top of the Knot Today. Not a good move, my curls were ok, but not as nice as they were the previous night. Plus I had a lot of dripping! And I had no dripping at all last night. I can definitely tell that the Knot Today is meant to be used with your other products they really work great together. So, although I would prefer the Knot Today to be thicker, I would still continue to purchase it simply because it seems to improve the performance of the other products.

But don't worry! I will be purchasing more this week! Thanks again for making such a wonderful product!

Sincerely,

Adria - Decatur, GA
SUBJECT: Thank You

Thank you so much for the tips. I can't believe it! I have curls that I didn't think existed! This is

my second day and my hair still has lots of moisture. I love it! My hair has been thirsty for moisture for a while now, and I finally have it, and don't need to reapply the product several times. I can't wait to get the spritz. That will really help hold my curls. Your products were a success!

I also like the pomade. It's not greasy, absorbs quickly, and keeps the fly always in their place. I started to use that instead of the gel I use all the time. I'm trying not to put gel in my hair at all, and start sticking with one product.

Oh, one last question, I've heard that your products promote natural hair growth. Is that true? A lot of people have told me that, but I thought I should ask you.

SUBJECT: Your Hair Products

I must tell you that I do like what I ordered. I have been using the products faithfully and they really are doing their duty in the New York cold weather. It seems as though my hair would suck up anything that I put on it to moisturize it, a few minutes later my hair would be dry again. Such has not been the case with your products.

I can't wait for the larger sizes to come out You really do have good products and I look forward to seeing a difference in the health of my hair.

SUBJECT: Hi Shelly

My neighbor saw my hair this morning and asked me what did I do with my hair. Then, I showed my sister later today what it does to my hair and she went wild. I do not know, since she has a relaxer in her hair if she could use it too. I have used it on my little cousin, who is bi-racial and her hair also liked it. it gave her a shine and she also liked it. So I will not be the only one who will be buying your product over here.

My sister really liked the results that it had on my hair. I promised her

to give her one jar from my next order. Did you happen to find out the shipping for 4 jars? In the meantime I will be using this jar on my own hair. I read on a forum that someone used it and it made her hair grow. Do you have any more of those testimonials?

Best regards and keep up the good work!!!

Your products are a God send! I have not been able to find anything that works as well. I have strayed but always come back to it since it gives me the moisture that my hair needs without a greasy or oily feel. I KNOW that it is because of this product why my hair has grown so much in the last 9 months. Please don't ever stop selling it!

SUBJECT: Hi Shelley

Hi Shelley,

I have been using your products since you first started in 2003. Without your tips and the products I am positive I would have returned to relaxing my hair or at the very least gotten a texturizer. I was so fed up with my hair. It was dry as hay and looked like a brillo pad. After trying your products it was love at first use. your stuff is the BOMB.

I never even knew I had waves, but to find out I have curls!

It moisturizes like nothing else and your hair never gets hard or dry.

No matter how long you use it for.

Believe me I have tried everything out there. And I do mean everything.

My hair has never been this long or healthy in my life. You have taught me so much about caring for my hair. You are so knowledgeable I find it amazing that you are not even a hair stylist. I know you don't want to market Kinky-Curly products as hair growth potions but it truly moisturizes your hair without grease or oiliness, reduces breakage and just makes it feel good. My man can touch my hair and not have to worry about having shiny hands! The moisture and the breakage reduction I guess is why I believe my hair has grown or just retained the length. As you taught me the hair is always growing, you just need to retain the length!

On top of having awesome products you are one of the sweetest people I have ever met.

Peace

SUBJECT: PINK LABELS?

Hi I have been using your products for a few months now and while I do really like them and all I was wondering if there was anything you could do about the pink and white labels? They are just so.....girly!

You see I am a guy and a very heterosexual guy at that. I have to keep the jars hidden in my dresser drawer in the closet so my dates do not see it when they use my bathroom. I wouldn't want them to get the wrong idea about me. Its hard enough being a single black man out here. I love what your products do for my fro so please help me bring them "out of the closet" (no pun intended.)

SUBJECT: FEEDBACK

well, I just received my jar of Curling Custard, and couldn't wait to try it. I am 51 years old, slightly Mediterranean Caucasian with frizzy, colored, lightened, rough, kinky hair.

I have spent a fortune and a lot of time coaxing it into any kind of curl. Well, guess what finally worked? I have never had such exquisite curl definition, bounce, shine, and "lastability". I got compliments all day, and it held up nicely into the next day. And my hair smells good enough to eat!!!! I was a bit skeptical at first due to past experience. And then I was afraid it might be too heavy for my thinning hair. But you now have a customer for life.

When are you going to make shampoo and rinse out conditioner? I want it all!!!!!!!

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

SUBJECT: Kinky Curly

I tried the products.  After using the Knot Today and the Curling Custard, I noticed that my hair did maintain mositure.  After I shampoo/condition my hair, it's normally very dry after the second day.  However, my hair was still soft and felt mositurized.  My hair is very kinky.  Therefore, my hair strands coil up very tightly.  Therefore, I didn't see any looseness of the coils.  ( I know this was my first use).  Perhaps, with continued use, the curl may loosen.  Even if they don't, I do not plan to go back to a relaxer.  I really love my Natural hair.  If you have a  mailing list, keep me on your list, or email me with new products update or  information.

Thanks,
Lettenia Young

Hi Shelley,

As a matter of fact, I did buy your product and I love it! It smells great too =) I bought the Kinky-Curly in the tub and it really defines my curls nicely.

Thanx

SUBJECT: THE BEST PRODUCT EVER!

Of course i am always looking for a product to work on my natural hair and everything i used was garbage....i went to your site and i read the testimonials and i made a vow that this was the last product that i will ever try. if this didnt work i would just go back to my old regime and call it a day....let me say that my mouth is on the floor right now.... because i expected this product to fail and i was ready to toss it into the trash can......again my mouth is on the floor i bought the custard and the detangler...i washed my hair and applied the product and NEVER AND I MEAN NEVER have i been able to get a comb through my hair once it began to dry....For the first time since going natural have i began to see the natural length of my hair. Also it was SHINY....and i didn't have to use this oil or that oil....BUT i was still not convinced....i knew that once my hair dried it would all be over with so i just kept staring at my hair and it was gorgeous..I then took another section of hair and decided to do a shirley temple curl with my fingers....OMG it looks like i put a weave in my hair....it is that silky and curly....i am calling all of my friends as we speak.... because i cant believe what i am seeing.....i have thrown all of my products in the trash....and i will be placing another ORDER ASAP....I AM STILL IN SHOCK......i have never been one of those people to subscribe to that good hair, bad hair nonsense.....but i am sitting here looking like i GOT INDIAN IN MY FAMILY.....lol....i am in sock.......

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU

SUBJECT: CURLING CUSTARD/KNOT TODAY

I ordered the Knot Today and Curling Custard. These are my favorite products now, I am newly natural. After application of the Knot Today and the Curling Custard my hair is soft and curly (just too cute)

A satisfied customer
Girl, you got a good thing! I've been meaning to write and tell you what I thought about the Curling Custard. Let me start off by saying I have never heard of Kinky-curly.com and really just stumbled across your site, while looking for natural hairstyles. When I found you site, I still had long relaxed hair in transition and was getting ready to do the "big chop". Well, 4th of July weekend, I just got fed up with my in-between hair and just started cutting it at random in the bathroom. I cut it down to a TWA (teeny-weeny afro). Two weeks later, I had it professionally re-cut. I think it was around that time that I ordered the Kinky-curly Curling Custard. Well, when it came in, I was so excited. Prior to using it, I was experimenting with different gels, conditioners and moisturizers. Some days I would get the look right. Other days it looked like whodunit! Well, since I started using the Curling Custard, Girl, it looks right every time!! I LOVE IT! A small amount goes a long way- don't over do it. The results in my hair have been defined curls that are not greasy (but if you use too much product they may be *sticky*) and a lasting style. I am growing my hair out so, I am not getting it trimmed up every two weeks and I can still say that my hair looks good after having cut it over a month ago. I don't have to pick it- I can finger style, it if I want. I know that if I use the Curling Custard, I am guaranteed to have a good hair day with my natural. And believe me, that's saying a lot, because I am a product junkie! I can't wait to see the results when my hair gets longer. I think if I would have had this product 5 years ago when I first tried a natural, I would have gotten through the transition phase and would have stayed away from relaxers for good. Now, I think, the second time around I will be able to stick it out.

Didn't mean for this to become a novel, but like I said, I've been meaning to write. I think you have a great line and I hope you get it in stores out here on the East Coast. Good luck with all your endeavors.

God bless,

Monique - Delaware
SUBJECT: THANKS!

Hello,

I wanted to officially thank you for your products. I love the Knot Today-Curling Custard combination. I would have never tried it had you not sent a sample of the Knot Today.

My hair is now healthy, growing and tangle-free.

I also greatly appreciate your customer service

I am a devoted customer.

Thanks!

SUBJECT: Follow Up

Hi,
I had emailed for advice several weeks ago with this product and wanted to pass along what worked for me. I have 2b/3a hair and wanted more volume and curls. You suggested not using a leave in which did help. However, lately I have been combing the product through my hair as I lean forward with a wide tooth shower comb, scrunching with a microfiber towel and diffusing dry. Combing it through has really increased the curls and volume. Alone or with a leave in. I have also been using Bumble and Bumble leave in with it and had great results. I know it’s expensive but it works wonderfully under it.

The Curling Custard was the only product able to hold up to 90 degrees and 99% humidity in Ohio. I have been really impressed this summer!

SUBJECT: Thanks a million

I just had to write to say THANK YOU! I got the Curling Custard, and I absolutely love it! I read what you said in an interview, and fully agree with how you find a product you really like, and it is either reformulated (which is NEVER for the better) or discontinued. I sure hope you continue doing what you are doing without any changes, and wish you much success!

My hair is weighed down just enough to look awesome with no straggly hairs (it's clumped nicely) and feels very moisturized. I do use a gel on top for more hold, but my hair is never known to be a one product type because it has no curls and too much poof on it's own without products.

Thank you again, and I look forward to having this as a holy grail product for my very picky and unusual hair! :)

Hey Shelley, got the package and just want to say thanks for the prompt shipping. I tried some of the custard on a couple of twists and then took them aloose. My hair did feel softer and had moisture. That is a very good thing. Can't wait to wash my hair to get the full experience. And the trial size of the leave in was in a nice size container. So I'm pleased. I will update you later on what happens after I wash my hair.

I am amazed how well your products work. At first I had the jojoba jelly, Gloss Pomade and Knot Today and was only able to get a few curls within my afro. But when I got the Curling Custard I got a head full of curls it very amazing.

Is there any way this product can be sold from a store here in Waterloo Iowa, or possibly I can sell them here?

Thanks for a great product.

SUBJECT: RECENT ORDER

Hello,

I got my products today, and the first thing I did was take the box into the bathroom, took a shower and tried the curling custard. I parted my hair in the center combed it to both sides and put this goo on my head....this is a style that is always a good test on my head, because when my hair is wet it lays flat and looks curly. With other products by the time it dries its a big round bush with a part in the center.

Well long story short, I came upstairs did some work, was typing away on the computer when my youngest daughter walks in from day-camp and goes, MOMMY!!! I MISSED YOU!" (like she didn't just see me this morning) and gives me a kiss. I say "Good to see you, careful of the hair its still wet, how was camp?" She says, "Your hair isn't wet! Camp was great, be right back" So while she was gone, I put my hand in my hair....while I am waiting for it to dry and draw up....it didn't do that. It was exactly the way I had styled it, it was still flat, the curls were still there, its moist but not dry, it moves, and what's more....it's SHINY! I have tried every product with every conceivable promise written on it- trying to get this effect, and yours is the only one that does what it says. Usually I have to keep my hair wet to get this effect and use globs of very heavy gel, and by the time the gel starts to dry, I'm on my way home from a meeting and no one knew my hair was damp. Then of course, once it starts to dry, gel or not, it gets that big round shape again. hahaha

Then came the real test, my mom walks in with my oldest daughter and my grandchild and they both asked me if I had got a relaxer, didn't believe me when I said no, and my grandson tried to play in my hair, he has never done that before. This is some great stuff, and it smells great. Expect your Cincinnati sales to go up because I am going to tell everyone I know about this stuff and they are going to buy their own supply because they are not getting a hold of mine.

Keep up the great work.

Your customer forever,

I have 4 of your products and just tried the custard and spritz which is excellent.

There is nothing on the market that comes close as far as I know. I might add that I am a licensed cosmetologist in the state of MD but moved to Oregon 20 years ago. I worked for Clairol retail div for 7 years in DC and Penn, and know something about hair care. [Not in the field anymore]

What are your plans for the future of this product line? I loved what it did to my hair would love to spread the news. this is an excellent product for mothers of mixed race kids. now they don't have to spent so much time in the salon with the kids and they do have money to spend.

my ideas; make travel and kids sizes. thanks for your ear.

Forgive and Find Peace.

SUBJECT: THANK YOU FOR GREAT PRODUCTS

I am so pleased with the products! I have noticed a difference in my hair today especially with this humid Atlanta weather. After all of the heat, humidity and sweat I can still get my fingers through it and it still maintained the curls. And there is no build up like the other frizz control products I use.

Thank you!
