nice things people said about us

Jane Magazine

The original Knotty Boy Dread Shampoo Bar had an orange label, which got us featured in Jane Magazine's "Orange you glad we didn't say banana?" products review.

Salon Magazine

Starting and maintaining dreads is easy thanks to Knotty Boy Dread Wax - a beeswax/hempseed-based formula specifically designed for dreadlocking all types of hair.

The New York Times

I try never to leave the house with fewer than three products in my (thinning, graying) hair, usually including Knotty Boy Dread Wax, a mixture of beeswax and hemp oil designed to bestow short-term dreads. ("If you like it nappy, Knotty Boy will make you happy.")
