Natural Hair News – Mo Knows Hair Curl Collection With Sally Beauty

This post may contain affiliate links. Read full disclosure HERE.

Over the next few articles, I’m covering black-owned hair care businesses launched in the past year and started with Tracee Ellis Ross’s Pattern Beauty.

Today, I will be covering Mo Knows Hair Curl Collection. Monica Stevens or as she’s more popularly known Mo Knows Hair, has been part of the natural online community for quite some time.

She originally shared her hair care tips on her blog, Mo Knows Hair, but eventually attended cosmetology school with a scholarship.

She became a licensed cosmetologist and opened a salon in Manhattan. She also became an Aveda Ambassador.

She recently partnered with Sally Beauty to launch the Mo Knows Hair Curl Collection in September 2019.

The product claim – “Each product is formulated with botanical extracts to nourish, essential oils and butter to enhance manageability, and powerful proteins to repair and improve elasticity, ultimately restoring scalp and curls to their optimal health.”

The product packaging is mainly lilac with white overtones and gold and purple lettering. And of course, the natural hair porn is epic.

The product line contains eight products for hair:-

  • Scalp and curl clarifier
  • Shampoo (coming soon)
  • Co-wash + conditioner
  • Restoring treatment
  • Curl primer
  • Styling potion
  • Smoothing pudding and
  • Setting gel

The product names are interesting and catchy but it’s the taste of the pudding curlistas are after so let’s get to the analysis part.

Mo Knows Hair Curl Collection Line Up

Mo Knows Hair Scalp + Curl Clarifier Pre-Shampoo Treatment 

This is advertised as a pre-shampoo treatment, which would work great with a scalp massage brush. I like that it contains jojoba oil and Abyssinian oil.

Additional favourites include meadowfoam seed oil, argan oil, aloe vera leaf juice, camellia Sinensis extract and wheat protein.

Every hair type should love this pre-shampoo treatment. The pre-shampoo treatment is available in 4.22 oz with a price point of $9.99. Learn more HERE.

Mo Knows Hair Scalp Curl Hydrator Shampoo

This shampoo is still in the development stages and should be available soon.

Mo Knows Hair Curl Co-Wash + Conditioner

The curl co-wash + conditioner is a 2 in 1 that can be used as a conditioner as well as a co-wash.

It’s formulated with Abyssinian oil, castor oil, watermelon seed oil, avocado oil, apricot kernel oil and silk amino acids.

Looking at these ingredients, the product should leave your hair soft and moisturized.

This should work for all hair types but if it’s too thick, dilute with some rosewater before application.

The co-wash + conditioner is available in 10 oz. with a price point of $10.99. Learn more HERE.

Mo Knows Hair Curl Restoring Treatment

This is a deep conditioning treatment, which contains some great oils such as mongongo oil, watermelon seed oil, meadowfoam seed oil, apricot kernel oil,  and argan oil.

It also contains quinoa protein, aloe vera leaf juice and mango butter. The rest of the ingredients look great and doesn’t contain any cones so this might be a keeper.

The restoring treatment is available in 6 oz. with a price point of $11.99. Learn more HERE.

Mo Knows Hair Curl Primer

This curl primer is a lightweight leave-in conditioner followed by one of the 3 products below.

This product contains several cones so might be a deal-breaker for some curlistas.

It also contains coconut oil, grapeseed oil, aloe vera leaf juice, Abyssinian oil, castor oil, apricot kernel oil, wheat protein, argan oil and mango butter.

The curl primer is available in 6.76 oz with a price point of $10.99. I kinda feel like this product would dry out my hair.

However, I can’t be certain until I test it out. Learn more HERE.

Mo Knows Hair Curl Styling Potion

This is the final step before styling your hair and can be used for braid outs, twist outs, and wash and gos.

It can also be used as a leave-in conditioner in place of the curl primer. The curl styling potion contains cones as well.

It’s available in 6.76 oz with a price point of $10.99. Note that it contains protein too so if you’re using all the products from start to finish, keep an eye on how your hair is reacting to so much protein. Learn more HERE.

It provides medium hold and can be used over the curl setting lotion as well.

It contains shea butter, coconut oil, mango butter, olive oil, Abyssinian oil, jojoba oil, meadowfoam seed oil, apricot kernel oil, grapeseed oil and avocado oil.

It’s available in 6 oz with a price point of $11.99. I like that shea butter is the second ingredient.

This means it should work well for high porousity hair. Hopefully, it doesn’t leave any flakes once it dries. Learn more HERE.
