    Oooh yes!! And I found this in a comment on the blog post:

    Honey has humectant molecules small enough to penetrate the hair shaft.
    So that's great! Thank you!

    Yes, good looking out! The comments on Wendy’s posts are often worth looking at as her readers ask smart questions.

    And you’re very welcome Siv.

    Did a SMT on Sunday using Kinky Curly Knot Today as my base conditioner. I'm not really using leave-ins these days, so I thought I'd try it for this purpose as I've always found it to be very moisturizing. I added a tiny amount of coconut oil as there is no oil in the ingredients, but otherwise it was the standard recipe. Anyway it worked great! Hair is soft and shiny, lots of slip. I'm loving keeping my deep conditioners on for shorter times (30-45 min.) and using heat to process these days. My hair leans towards being lower porosity, so the heat really helps me see and feel a difference after conditioning. Otherwise why bother?
