Kimmaytube’s Leave In Conditioner Recipe


I am the queen of concoctions, I think I have mixed everything in my kitchen for my hair except for a black pepper and jerk seasoning. One of the real reasons I do this is because honestly I cannot justify paying over $25 for a jar of ‘glory hallelujah’  when I can just make something that works just as well myself.

Kimmaytube, is well known for her wonderful slick hair tutorials and most recently the launch of her Luv Naturals Product line, but what really helped me over the years was the leave in conditioner that she created and generously shared with her YouTube viewers.

The leave in conditioner we in the blogosphere affectionately call the kimmaytube leave in is so simple to make with only four key ingredients, most of which you probably already have.

kimmaytubes leave in recipe

The recipe

1 oz of Kinky Curly Knot Today or your preferred creamy silicone free leave in conditioner

2 TBSP of Aloe Vera Juice with a pH of 4.0 or 4.5 or Aloe Vera Gel

2 TSP of castor oil

2 TSP of Jojoba oil

The only thing that cannot be substituted in this recipe is the Aloe Vera Juice (or gel) as it is one of the main sources of moisture retention that this recipe is guaranteed to give. You can however mix and match your leave in and oils to your own liking and still get a perfect combination. The thickness of the leave in conditioner that you decide to use will determine the thickness of the final product so pick wisely!

In addition to all the above ingredients it may be beneficial to buy some pH test strips so that you can test the product to make sure that it remains at the proper level after all the ingredients have been mixed.The pH level that we are aiming for is that which is closely akin to our own sebum that is naturally produced from the scalp, this is about 4.0 to about 4.5.

    I tried the Kimmaytube Leave in and I love it. It moisturized my hair like no other.

    I’ve been using this concoction over a year and I like how it makes my hair feel and stay moisturized. Prior to the discovery, I used Kinky Curly Knot Today leave-in conditioner as is. I triple the recipe and save it in the fridge. I spoon out the the amount I need on wash days instead of mixing a new batch each time. I’ve also used it for my twists and the results of my twist outs was AWESOME! I’m glad I discovered the mixture.

    I’ve been using this recipe also for the last 8 months and it has done WONDERS for my hair. It beats out Shea Moisture and a lot of other stying products that are too heavy for my hair. I was so surprised it would work due to my lo-po hair. Perfect! And I gave it to a few of my other natural-haired friends! I’m waiting on their results! I just ordered the Love Me and Leave In from her website to compare. I hear it’s even better. I’ll see!!

    whats a less expensive silcone-free condish. $20 for 8oz is a bit much for my budget. Thanks

    Would Cantu Shea Butter Leave-in be considered a silicone-free leave-in conditioner?

  6. 10

    I actually have another question. I used the Cantu leave-in as a substitute for the Kinky Curly Knot Today in addition to the following ingredients to this recipe not realizing the leave-in could be replaced by any “silicone free” conditioner prior to asking you if Cantu is considered to be a silicone free leave-in. Doing so could I have potentially cause harm to my hair? or Is it safe?

  15. 21

  17. 23

    Shutora Rogers, this is the recipe I was telling you about. I’ve had good luck with it so far. I use whatever oil I have on hand for ingredient 4, I haven’t used jojoba oil yet.

    This stuff is wonderful and easy to put together. You can get most of the ingredients at Trader Joes or any good hair beauty supply store

  20. 26

    I used this stuff and my hair felt wonderful but I am still a bit confused though.
    Should I still seal with the oil and apply cream (LOC Method) after applying the leave in, even though the leave in mixure has oil in it already?
    How often should I use this mixture per week? Is it only after the wash regimen.
    Please help.
