Type 4 Naturals features Kinky Tresses

Kinky Tresses

Type 4 Naturals follows, supports and collaborates with some great brands in the natural hair and lifestyle communities. Recently, we had the opportunity to host woman in business owner of Kinky Tresses LLC, Shawna Moses. With a background in science, experimenting with her hair and frustration with trying different products, she decided to create Kinky Tresses. Her product line is specific to help Type 4 and other natural textures that battle with dry and brittle hair.

We met Shawna Moses through social media as with other brands. We were fortunate to host her pop-up shop at Ecodermis & Wolfberry – an intimate specialty retailer in Brooklyn, New York who features small businesses in the natural hair community.

Type 4 Naturals were provided the full line of Kinky Tresses hair care products in exchange for our honest opinion. On the day of the event, each of us used one or all of the Kinky Tresses products to further support the content of this product review.

Here are our thoughts of the Kinky Tresses products:

Avocado Infusion Moisturizing Shampoo

(8 oz) on site cost – $13.00
With a slight shake to mix the natural ingredients, the lightly smelled shampoo gently cleanse the scalp and hair. We recommend that you take the time to section your hair to thoroughly get the product on each part of your hair to thoroughly clean the scalp and hair.

Avocado Infusion Restorative Conditioner

(8 oz) on site cost – $15.00 Kinky Tresses
Following the instructions, both Kat and her daughter’s hair benefited from the “avocado oil, honey and silk amino acids” infused into Kinky Tresses’ restorative conditioner. Although none of us have tried the deep conditioning using this product, letting the conditioner work its magic in the recommended 5 minutes, allowed it to do it’s job. Kat was able to detangle mini natural’s kinky tresses without any issues. Type 4 hair benefits from using this conditioner, the ingredients work together to soften and moisturize dry and brittle hair.

Avocado Infusion Leave-in Hair Milk

(8 oz) on site cost – $14.00
Is it a leave-in conditioner? Is it a hair milk? It’s both. This confused us at first, but once used on wet hair, the milk provides another layer of moisture. It made Kat’s tapered hair very soft and provided a light shine. The description mentions using on dry hair, we would recommend misting sections of your hair with water first and then applying this leave-in to allow the milk to work into your hair and allow for you to style.

Coconut Mango Hair Butter

(4 oz) on site cost – $16.00
We. Love. Hair. Butter.!! And this butter is now on the list. It smells like a afternoon on a tropical island beach with a coconut water in hand. With the weather quickly transitioning to fall, this butter is a product that should be easy to grab on your product shelf. Protective styling with this butter will leave your twists and braids highly moisturized and juicy looking. Be mindful, Shea butter is used in this butter – although the name mentions coconut and mango.

Nourishing Hair Oil (4 oz)

on site cost – $7.00
The point of oil is to use as a hot oil treatment prior to your shampoo process. Some call it “pre-poo” but don’t mention anything about using heat. That is for another post. Kinky Tresses nourishing hair oil, use as a hot oil or as a sealant oil at the ends of your hair to lock in moisture to the oldest part of your hair. A little goes a long way. You don’t and shouldn’t use so much that it drips down your face, ears and neck.
