My Assessment: I originally started using Kanechom Shea Butter around January 2012 after I saw a girls video on YouTube about her beautician using this mixed with Silicon Mix and I had to try it…. Hated it…. but it was the Silicon Mix I hated. I had continued using this, but never alone, only with some Carol’s Daughter Black Vanilla or Ojon Dry Recovery. It worked best with the CD IMO because it was a DC. I had kept using this and the longer I used it, the healthier my hair got, only pointed out to me by other people. I used it for about 6 months, which resulted in my ordering a second jar (shown above) with one jar lasting about 4-5 months (because I was mixing).
The only reason I stopped using the Kanechom was because I was into using more natural products to see how that would work. While I like the results of my Silk Dreams and Darcy’s Botanicals, none of them made my hair feel the way it did when I mixed conditioners with even just a couple tablespoons of Kanechom.
I tried using the CD BV again, alone, and it was nice… but nothing compared to using it with Kanechom. Likewise with Silk Dream Vanilla Silk; I love my Vanilla Silk, but it does not provide me with consistent slip, so when I added some Kanechom, it provided much better silk. I used it after some Shea What! and Razzberry Coconut Affair as well and it was phenomenal as a final rinse.
I definitely get better slip and moisture when using this conditioner, whether I mix it with a conditioner or as a rinse-out. It smooths my hair really well and gives it a silkier and more healthy looking appearance. I usually only use it for days when I roller set though. I am left with softer, smoother hair that only needs to be sealed and I can go 3-5 days without M&S or just sealing. Even my texlaxed hair is softer and more manageable. Why do I not use it on air dried hair? IDK, mostly has to do with it being a good moisturizer and I don’t care for “moist” wet hair when I air dry, so I prefer soft hair when roller set because I use protein (I hope that makes sense).
After analyzing the ingredients for DAYS UPON DAYS before my initial purchase, I deduced that it is an excellent moisturizer because of water, fatty alcohol conditioner, a little bit of cones and the main ingredients. There really isn’t anything holding the main star back from being a star and even with the products you find on the ground, there will because about 30 ingredients with ingredients scattered, and the stars will be at the tail end of the parade when you are about ready to leave. There are only 9 ingredients so there is a likely chance that the actual amount in the product may be more than you think.
The consistency is thick and creamy seen here and it mixes really well. The smell is nice, maybe a tad perfumy, but its still good. Like I said, Ive never really used this alone as a DC, unless as a rinse-out after a DC, as I always mix it with other conditioners, but I will say, this is a conditioner that if you had on hand, it would make any subpar conditioner exceptional. Well, maybe acceptable lol. Despite the shea butter, it is not heavy and despite the keratin, it should not leave you with overload. I used it mixed after HARD protein treatments and still never had breakage.
I also tried the goats milk, but if you have a balance regimen, don’t go that route. I had breakage city.
All in all, I would recommend.
Hope this help Tarra, and all my beautiful readers! Keep your eyes on the prize ladies :-*
