I have thick 3A/3B dry, low porous hair and this is has been a great product. I can actually use only this on my hair, no other products. It doesn't flake, or get crunchy, it creates soft, non-frizzy curls. I never use shampoo....I "wash" 2-3 times a week with a dandruff conditioner only and then use a fairly hefty amount of the spiral spray. I only wish I could get a larger size...it is expensive and gets used up fast.
First time I tried this I had mixed feelings because I used it after the swimming pool and went a little crazy amount wise. Ended up with beautiful ringlets but heavy, flat hair at the top of my head. Less is more. I tried it as a refresher and found it to work very well (used KKCC the day before).
I really wanted to like this product, since I love their Knot Today detangler. But just does not work for my fine strand, thick 2B/2C hair. First day I used it (on clean wet hair, after detangling with Knot Today) I thought it was a great product. Gave me waves/curls, some volume and not stiff, like most gels. I really like the ingredients too. But alas, my scalp started to itch from it later in the day, which eventually subsided. The next morning, I tried to refresh the gel with a light water spritz and all I got was a sticky, dry and frizzy top layer, which got worse as the day went on. Not sure if it was due to just this product or the Knot Today combined with it. Morning of day 3, just as bad, so, I washed it out. Most gels are too heavy for my hair, usually I dilute them with at least 50% water in a spray bottle. I wash my hair every 4 days and refresh daily, with just water or very diluted leave-in conditioner and or diluted gel...... the search for the perfect curl inducing product continues...
Very nice refresher! Don't spray it directly in your hair though! Spray it in your hands then apply! Leaves curls nice and shiny! Perfect if you need light styling if you are doing a French braid, I use it on top of the KCKT,light hold, but leaves hair soft!
I have not used this product as a base styler but I do plan to at some point... It has done amazing work on my second or third day hair and it simple causes my frizz to vanish... I love this and would definitely recommend it...
Not a fan of this..I have tried it many ways to give it chances over and over but I just can't recommend it. And I'm pretty sure it leaves a residue I don't like at all.
This is my 4th summer in a row of purchasing this as a go-to refesher/second day styler. Spiral Spritz is really a gel, not a typical spritz spray. It's actually thicker than "gels" like Ouidad Heat & Humidity, or CIAB (which, to me, are actually lotions, not gels, but this is something in-between). This does not work for me as a base styler on wet hair, but it's great on damp hair that's already full of product, or on frizzy dry hair. It really helps my hair to re-gain definition after the frizz rears itself, and it dries pretty quickly. This spray can be touchy with other products (it gets "dusty" or flakey), but KCCC or another leave-in, prior to application of styling products, reduces this. I use this the same way I use gels or creams; I rub it in my hands and rake it through my hair. This cannot be sprayed directly on hair unless you want random gooey spots all over your head and leaking down your neck. If I use this by itself on wet hair it gets crunchy, but it doesn't get crunchy if my hair is damp or dry...I guess it doesn't get the chance to form a coating. This smells wonderful - a sweet lavender scent that's soothing and refreshing. If you're battling with crazy frizz the positives of this product definitely outweigh the negatives. Once you get used to how much your hair likes, and learn how this reacts in different situations, this can be the most outstanding product ever for recapturing definition and obliterating frizz.
Like all the kinky curly products I have tried so far, this has worked for me. I have very frizzy dry low-porosity hair that needs a product that is solely made to fight frizz. This does the job. What I did was after shampooing with shea moisture moisture retention shampoo I rinsed out with suave naturals coconut conditioner then sealed with jojoba oil. After I did that I squirted out about 4 pumps of this for my whole head. This does not come out as a mist or a spritz it comes out as a narrow squirt. So I squirted about 4 pumps in my hand and spread it out through my hair. Then I added a generous amount of kinky curly knot today and added almost the same amount of the curling custard but just a little less. When my hair was almost fully dry i scrunched out the crunch with jane carter nourishing hair cream and let it dry for another 10 minutes. When i was all done i had fabulous bouncy spirals with a good amount of hold and not too much frizz. I love it! This product has good ingredients and the price is justified. I will repurchase.
I really like this product. I have very thick 2c hair that doesn't really curl in the winter. After applying Kinky Curly Knot Today, I split my hair into about six sections and scrunch this in. After drying, I have bouncy, shiny waves with a few ringlets, something that has never even happened in the summer! My only complaint is that I wish it had more hold. For that reason, I probably wouldn't use this in the summer, but it's quickly becoming my holy grail in the winter! It also is very light, so I'm able to achieve second day hair without it looking weighed down and greasy.
I am just starting to grow out my natural hair so I am still searching for the right products for my hair. This product is perfect for my 3b hair. It has enough slick to comb through my hair and it has just the right amount of holding agent to hold my curls. It also kept the frizzies away.
This doesn't really do much for my frizzy hair when used alone, but I've found a new use for it. I needed a leave-in product, so I grabbed this, sprayed a few pumps into my hands, and smoothed it over my wet hair. I then scrunched in a hard-hold gel (LA Looks Sport). After my hair dried and I scrunched out the crunch, my waves were smooth and shiny. It's very hard to find a shine-enhancing product that isn't heavy and doesn't contain oils or silicones, so this is a nice find.
I've seen a lot of mixed reviews on this product, but I wanted to try it anyways. I've been using this for about 2 weeks or so and I really like it. The only time that I use this is when I take my hair down in the morning and find a frizzy curl or two. I'll grab that strand, wet it with my fingers, use a half pump of this in my hands & put it on that strand. Then I'll twirl it with my finger and scrunch. The curl gets revived! This bottle will definitely last me a long time since I only use it for this reason. I'll definitely repurchase it though!
This is my go to for refreshing my 2nd day curls. I don't have shrinkage and it is not as sticky as some other products. The trick is to spray it in your hand and not directly onto your hair. Because of the consistency spraying it is weird and spraying it directly onto your hair will cause a big glob.
This is a complete waste of time. I have 3C/4A curls and this does absolutely nothing for me.
I have 2b fine, thin hair. OMG I love this product! I live in Texas, it is hot and very. very humid now. I read the reviews below and decided to give this a try. I am so glad I found naturallycurly's reviews. Thanks to all you who do reviews. It helps to see all the different hair types, textures and your results. You can't pry Kinky-Curly Spiral Spritz spray out of my hands! I love it. I got perfectly FRIZZ-FREE hair by combining all three of their products. My waves are frizz-free, soft, full, fluffy, shiny, defined, and bouncy. If they ever stop making this product I will cry. I used the Kinky-Curly Knot Today leave-in conditioner, the Kinky-Curly Spiral Spritz, and a bit of the Kinky-Curly Curling Custard. I did not get any crunch at all, but I have read if you do its easy to scrunch out. XOXO
Kinky-Curly's website suggests this product for fine wavy hair. And it recommends the Curling Custard for thicker hair. But I have found that my 2b/2c very, very, very fine hair loves both products. I love to use it to refresh my curls.
Humidity is not a problem anymore! Kinky-Curly Spiral Spritz gives me 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th day hair! I LOVE this product! I am Caucasian and I have long, super, super, super fine, low porosity (healthy) 2b/2c combination hair. I use the curly girl method. I washed with Alberto VO5 moisture milk, and conditioned with Suave Naturals. I applied a quarter sized dollop of Kinky-Curly Knot Today as a leave-in conditioner. To half of my head I then added a quarter size dollop of CURLS Curl Gel-les'c and to the other side of my hair I applied Kinky-Curly Spiral Spirtz (8 pumps) and Kinky-Curly Curling Custard (a pea size). I let my hair dry. I reapplied a tiny bit of each product to each respective side and let it dry. ( I keep a hair journal when I try out new products.) I have been trying to find something to battle the humid Texas summers. It was 102?F, 78% humidity, and the dew point was 70?F. I LOVE Kinky-Curly's products. In my opinion, it was a tie between the CURLS Curl Gel-les'c & the Kinky-Curly side. Bytheway, Both products gave me ZERO FRIZZ, defined, shiny, bouncy curls. Personally I felt that the KC side was a little softer to the touch. Maybe if you use the CURLS leave-in moisturizer the chemicals with interact better. But neither side was crunchy, wet-looking or oily! I will buy all the Kinky-Curly products and this CURLS Curl Gel-les'c product again. But my favorite is the Kinky-Curly because it smells better. I like the texture more and did feels nice on my hands when I apply it.
My second day hair miracle! I love this product. It has made second day hair possible for me. It adds definition to my curls and controls frizz, which is my toughest struggle. When I first bought this product, I quickly realized that you can't spray this product directly onto your hair. You need to spray it into your hands and scrunch through your curls. 5 curls!
This is so great!!!!! I ran out and i stated crying!! This is the best product to bring back my curls
I use this product on my 3 year old sons baby fine curls. His hair isn't too long and only requires light hold and this works very well for that. It doesn't work as well for my medium length fine curls but we use it for him every day.
Perfect for my soft, fine, wavy/curly, color-treated 2b hair. Refreshed waves and curls nicely without heavy, sticky feel of a gel, and without crunch. Hair feels light and soft. I'm enjoying all the Kinky-Curly products I've tried, they work nicely together (KCSpiral Spritz, KCKnot Today, and KCCCustard) without product build-up, and they are readily available at Target, so no shipping charges.
Hair type: mixed, 3C/4A. Kinky Curly's Curling Custard and Knot Today are fantastic, but the Spiral Spritz is terrible. Left my hair looking and feeling dry and brittle.
This product is very good as your second day refresher!! My curls lasted 4 days before they started to wear out, LOVE IT!
My fine 2b hair frizzes like crazy, even when it isn't curling up very much. This stuff is awesome for getting the frizzies out and leaving my hair smooth and soft - not stiff or producty. I'm happy it's silicone free, and for me it works lots better than the silicone serums I've tried (they leave a weird dry/oily feel to my hair).. The spray nozzle does indeed suck - it squirts out in a forceful jet. I'm going to try putting it into another spray bottle. For now though I spray it onto my hands and run my hands over frizzy spots (everywhere) on dry hair - ta da, smooth shiny hair. I haven't had any problems with flakes. Smells nice - sort of lemony.
@surething LOL! Me too. I just got this out after a year. In our defense the instructions are hard to read in the light yellow and they don't really tell you HOW to use it. Do I spray it directly on my hair or in my hands and rake through? REVIEW: I have baby fine 2/3a/b hair - it depends on how humid it is. I live in California so I usually use nothing because I prefer a natural look to a crunchy look and we normally have dry to semi-humid weather my curls love the latter and are good enough in dry. As long as I deep condition, co-wash or use sulfate free shampoo I'm good. However, this year the rainy season started early (normally rain means I put it up and the little curls stick out and I look cute) but I'm unemployed and interviewing this year. Last Thursday I would not be surprised if I don't get a call back based on my hair. It was all my types - 2a/b/c/3a/b all at once with poufy frizz on top. It looked great when I left but the day was misty. I stopped at the supermarket and got anti-humidity gel for fine hair from Pantene and blowdried it straightish and it curled up and looked decent. However, today I put the same gel in and decided to airdry and I had greasy over gelled multi-type hair. I came here to look for anti humidity stuff suggestions saw this and and I spritzed this on my mess and its 3a/b. It is a little gel crunchy but it already had gel in it. I still don't know if this will work as product but as a refresher - lets just say it's going in the brief case. I'll test tomorrow as a product since it is still supposed to be raining. I'm hoping for mist which my hair hates more. If it works I may hit Target and get the leave in as well. I gave it 4 curls because I still need to see how it holds up as a product.
It's an okay product, but doesn't give me that 2nd look that I expect. I much rather wash and go daily.
I actually had this product for a year before I figured out how to use it. Yes your hair has to be at least damp. As with all KC products that I've tried, the wetter the better. And yes it skeets out into your hand, not your head. But it is the absolute best for a de-frizz/next day solution. Brings your shine back and doesn't build up. We had one of the hottest summers on record this year and I used it day after day and it never failed to deliver.
This stuff is great as a second day styler/refresher. The consistency (light, watery gel) provides a strong enough hold when my initial gel has been scrunched out a lot by the next day; the hold looks as if it is super slicked back but it is really soft! I don't quite like the smell of the product when it's in the bottle—strong lavender, herbal scent—but once you pump it into your hand, you can't smell it. Only reason I'm giving it 4 stars is because I wish I could use it as a regular styler as well, but the hold is too light to be use on very wet hair.
This serum is more like a gel. And I think it should be used as such. Combine with a leave-in conditioner and you will have nice, bouncy curls. NO CRUNCH! I wasn't that impressed when I first got this product. But the problem was that I was using to little of it. As stated above; I think it is best with "knot today" leave-in conditioner/ jessicurls "too shea" conditioner. This really reduces frizz for me, especially if I apply it on dry hair. It gives a nice shine if you are wearing your hair up and pulled back. It can get a bit greasy on second day/ third day hair, but it DOES NOT make my hair stringy or limp in any way. Nice smell, not too strong. I have coarse hair, not fine!
I actually really liked this as a refresher for day 2+ hair. I couldn't spray directly on hair which is a minus, but was still able to apply by spraying into my hand and then into my hair; which I guess isn't too bad. And it's not to too pricey with $1.50 per ounce. I also didn't have to use a lot of the product to refresh my curls which is a plus, allowing the product to last longer.
I used this for a wash and go. Sprayed my hair with water, THEN added my shea moisture curl enhancing smoothie under this spritz (so my hair won't get dry). I thought this wouldn't do the trick because I usually see girls on youtube using something more heavy for 4b 4c hair (eco styler gel) but this worked for me. I don't see any other way I would be able to use this product other then a wash n go and to refresh because its so light BUT I am gonna try it when I decided to do a roller set (which is really why I bought it). Yeah it sprays out horrible but I think imma mix a little this and water in a spray bottle, I think that should solve that problem.
I really like this product now that I've finally figured out how to use it. I can't scrunch it into my hair like I do with KCCC; then it does pretty much nothing except add shine. I have to instead comb it through my hair with a wide tooth comb and then very gently scrunch the ends upward. I then either let my hair air dry or blow dry with the diffuser pointed downward, not upward with my hair gathered up into the bowl. Doing this leaves me with large, loose waves that are perfectly frizz free. If you are looking for a product that will add definition and bring out individual waves, this is not for you. If you are instead looking for something that will discourage frizz but not weight hair down then I highly recommend this product!
This is a MUST for my 3a curls!! This provides the absolute BEST frizz control for my curls! 1) I cleanse my hair with KC Come Clean 2) I split my hair on two sides and add a biiig glob of KCKT to each side (I have a lot of hair so it needs a looot of moisture! 3) I wet my hands and pump Kinky Curly Spiral Spritz into the palm of my hand (2 or 3 pumps) and rub palms together, then spread evenly around the crown of my head and my roots to tame the frizzies. Then I pump again a few more times and finger rake through the rest of my curls. This helps them clump together, and gives AMAZING shine! 4) I take a quarter sized amount of KCCC and rake through sections of my hair. Grab some more KCCC and repeat until all of my hair is saturated. 5) Flip my head upside down, rake fingers through hair once more and diffuse hair for 10 - 15 minutes. 6) Flip head back right-side up and let hair finish drying for another 1 - 2 hours (don't touch again until completely dry- verrry important!!) 7) At this point hair will be crunchy and hard, but once its fully dry gently squeeze hair in small bunches from root to ends and it will release the crunchy cast and help curls look soft and fabulous! OR I use KCSS as setting lotion when I want to use a roller set- Wowser! Gorgeous, shiny curls! OR I use KCSS on 2nd day hair (using step 3 above) This is my HG hair product forever!!
Well, i won't buy this product again. I saw on ebay it went for $19.99. Its defiantly not worth that much. Frizz control is nice, it does spritz up my hair, but not necessarily how i want it. The product also doesn't smell that nice. You would think that since the bottle is yellow, it would have a nice scent to it. Like Lemon or something tropical.
I have 2b hair. 2a if I brush it, or don't scrunch it. 2b on an average scrunched day. 2c if I'm having an extraordinary hair day. My hair is fine and average porosity (I think). I picked this up at Target hoping it would define my curls and hold them in without frizz. I was disappointed. I applied it to wet hair before getting out of the shower. I sprayed 5 squirts into my hands and worked it into my hair. It felt like there was no product in my hair at all, so I added 5 more squirts. Now I could tell there was product in my hair, but I had too much moisture and it was pulling down my curls. I plopped it in a turbie-twist for a couple of minutes while I dressed and after that I re-scrunched. I looked like a drowned poodle so I dried it part-way with a diffuser. This left my hair more wavy than curly and had very minimal hold. It's soft hold (not crunchy), but not enough hold for my hair. This product might work well for short hair.
This one is a dud. The spray nozzle gets this stuff everywhere and it shoots out with such much force! It did absolutely nothing for my hair. Not a thing. Waste of time and money.
LOVE this product--it's my most common go-to curl refresher on non-wash days. Don't spray it directly into your hair--you're better off spraying it into your palm because it shoots out more as a stream than as a mist. It has a nice lavender scent. I sometimes use a touch of it after I wash my hair to seal in moisture before adding styling products. I usually use it on other days to re-add moisture and shine--it works better for me than misting sprays (misting sprays tend to make my hair limp). The spritz is very moisturizing and slippery, which is useful on hair that's already dry. Docked a curl cuz it's kind of expensive, but I do really like the product.
This product flaked in my 4b/c hair and made it tacky and dry (yes I know strange). Yet, It worked well on my daughters 4a and my sons 2c.
This is great I use this as a styler product over the knot today it is awesome it's moisturizing and gets rid of frizz
Not really a fan of this. Its too thick to spray straight onto my hair for a refresher. I either mix it 50/50 with water in a smaller spray bottle and spray straight on my hair or spray this in my hand and rub it through the areas that need some frizz control.. This stuff smells nice! But I won't be buying this again.
I though I liked this the first day I tried it, but then ehhhh. I thought I would lov this because I LOVE Kinky-Curly Come Clean, Knot Today, and Curling Custard, and I needed a refresher, so I thought this would be great. All it did, though, was dry my hair out. I was so excited, especially because it could be used on dry hair. But no :(...this dried out my curls and gve me tons of frizz. I am giving this away. I think my hair just hates glycerin and aloe. If you want to refresh your curls, you're better off using water.
This product was GREAT for one-day-old curls! I've definitely seen the flakes though. But check it: if you don't use the whole product line (the shampoo, conditioner, custard, etc.) you're going to get the nasty flakes because any residue from different shampoo's or conditioner's doesn't mesh well with the Kinky products. The shampoo gets rid of buildup and residue from the products you used to use. So I recommend that if you are going to use these products, you have to commit to using it as a set! :)
hair type ~4a~ this stuff has the consistency and texture of a gel. it held my twist out well but boy did it leave flakes, loads of flakes and it was very drying and made my hair stiff. i used a lot of this stuff because my hair is thick, maybe i didn't use it right but i wouldn't give it a second go to make sure.
Spiral Spritz works for me on very hot, dry days when I can let my hair air dry and it won't take all day long (it still takes a couple of hours). If I use this with my diffuser, it separates and defines very well, but it gets hard. It's not a soft gel coat, but a crisp, plasticy coat. When I scrunch it, I lose all formation and separation and my hair becomes a poof of frizz. If I am able to let Spiral Solutions dry completely...and I mean completely...it works well, and I can scrunch carefully without creating a mess. I've made the mistake of thinking it was dry, and then scrunched, only to find the gel was dry, but my hair wasn't. This kills my curls and causes dry, flyaway frizz. I prefer the Curl Custard for my 3a/3b curls, because it blends in with the Knot Today Leave-In, so it stays soft. Spiral Solutions doesn't seem to blend with the leave-in, on my hair, so it makes it look flat instead of bouncy. Perhaps the horsetail creates too much silica for my picky, picky hair.
Hmmm... I really wanted to like this product but it was mediocre at best. I applied this product on damp hair after applying KCKT and defused my hair until it was 75% dry. Initially, I got big voluminous curls that were defined and soft. As the day progressed I noticed WHITE FLAKES all around the roots of my hair ewww. So sad... I will try to use it other ways to see if I can get better results but I will NOT purchase this again in the future.
I found this product to be very drying to my hair. It does not spray properly and it causes more frizz than definition. Water plus glycerin does a better job for a lot less.
I originally intended to try this product as a second day hair refresher but ended up so impressed that it is now my primary summer styler. Immediately after conditioning (with my hair flipped over) I emulsify 3 spritzes in my hand and smooth over the length of my hair. I follow by scrunching in a generous amount (probably 9 spritzes overall). After applying, I plop for about a half hour and that's it! Sooo easy! After my hair has air dried I may gently finger fluff my roots with my hair flipped over but this product has very little hold so I refrain from messing with my curls too much. The result is soft, touchable (not crunchy) curls and a pretty, glisten-y sheen. The scent smells mainly like aloe and is very light. For second day hair, I just smooth KCSS over my hair with a little lavender hydrosol and my curls come right back to life. As with other Kinky Curly products, this one is animal friendly and full of natural ingredients. P.S. do not spray directly on hair! (pump produces stream, not mist!)
Helps smooth my hair and give it shine. I think it helps control frizz as well. It works for me until the dewpoints get really high (like up to about a dew of 65 or so). At high dews I need to use different products. It has a nice, soft lavendar fragrance. As far as application goes, I spray several pumps into my hand before I apply it to my hair. I don't think it would work very well if sprayed directly onto my hair. I like that is made with natural ingredients and animal-friendly.
Horrible... Refreshing your hair with water does a better job than this. It's smells bad and it doesn't even spray out the right way. I bought it and took it back the same day. Waste of money
Love it! I have wavy/curly hair and its a perfect refresher and de-frizzer! You do need another product to uncrunch the crunch but other than that. I'll be sticking to this product for a while!
It's ok when its cool outside. but the way it sprays out is messy and for second day dry hair it forces use to run your hands through your hair creating more frizz. it's my back-up to deva-curl set it free.
I wanted something gel-like, so i got this. its not enough for me. it didnt have a lot of hold, and i had to use a lot of it before i noticed a difference. it gives a little shine. might try it again after a different leave-in, but i probably wont be buying it again.
I have fine 4a strands and I used this on naked hair (after deep conditioning and co-washing). I normally wash-n-go every day without any stylers or leave-ins, but lately I've been wanting a more defined, but still "free" look without using a hard-hold gel- so I gave this a try. And so far so good *keeping fingers crossed*. My coil definition is even better and the hold is light enough so I still have my "free" look and I know I won't have a problem washing it out the next day.
Love this product! Revives my curls at the end of the day with just a few scrunches and has saved me from a bad hair day after diffusing gone bad! Gives me well defined, frizz free spirals. You do have to spray it into your hand and then apply because it shoots out of the bottle in a stream but that's the only downfall...I will definitely be re-purchasing this product!
I had been wanting to try this product every since I saw it advertised in a hair magazine. I went to target and purchased it, since they were the only store that had "natural hair" products. The spiral spritz did nothing for my hair. The product felt like gel and water was in my hair. I don't think I will be purchasing anymore KC products.
My search for a finishing product is finally over and this is it! I have always needed some kind of product to smooth over my hair when it is all dry to just give it a little smoothness, tame any flyaways. I've tried so so many. I used to love Secret Weapon before going CG but have never found a replacement that I really liked. I finally settled on JCNS but sometimes it left me a little greasy looking. Low and behold KCSS is the perfect product for this. I spray about 5 pumps into my hand, rub palms together and SOTC with it and then smooth some overy my canopy. Leaves me with a little shine, but not oily, and does the job. Love it! Adding it to my list of HG's!
Wow! I just bought some of this at Target today. After slightly wetting my hair, I spritzed some in my hand and applied to one side of my head. The tightness and frizziness were calmed and resulted in beautiful spirals! I can't believe it! My guess is I need something to hold the curl so it will stay nice. I have only been CG for one week after 39 years of trying to tame my hair with a curling iron, products, etc. I'm so glad to have found this site. I think I'm a combo of 3a (bottom half of back of head) and 3b (kinky wiry, dry straw) on top. I'm only giving this 4 stars for now b/c I haven't used it all over. I'll give an updated rating later. Target needs to carry the pomade--am anxious to try it. Kudos to Target for carrying products made by smaller companies.
I have used Kinky-Curly Come Clean, Knot Today, and Curling Custard with absolutely fabulous results. It took some time for my hair to get use to, and finding the right consistently that works well for my hair type. Trying to understand and find the perfect amount is a journey, but the moisturizing and healthy results are in return, wonderful. Unfortunately, the Spiral Spritz is far from all the wonderful things I mentioned above about the Kinky-Curly products I have tried previous to Spiral Spritz. I used it to achieve second day hair because co-washing daily can get tiring after a while. The spray DOESN'T spray, it shoots out a rapid film. (That was unexpected!) I used it to reactivated the Kinky Curly Curling Custard. At the beginning of the day, all seemed nice and dandy, but as the day progressed, it began drying, flaking, and my hair was NOT "touchably" soft. It felt like I went to the salon, blow-fries my tresses, and threw a can of hair spray on it to freeze it in its position. Needless to say, I won't be revisiting this product.
I saw this product at my local Target store (FINALLY, they're carrying the Kinky Curly line...) It's okay, I guess. It seems to have good detangling ability; however, you need too much of the product to use it as a refresher for second-day hair. I have not tried it on soaking wet hair, but it seems that the product would not provide enough weight or moisture to sufficiently tame my thick, dry,and frizzy strands. I couldn't really detect any smell from this product. I do like the way it smooths the hair. I'd just have to use too much of it in order to achieve the desired look, and this wouldn't be very economical. I suppose if you resign yourself to using another product over the spiral spritz, this product has potential. I'm on the fence about repurchasing.
Just recently swapped for this product mainly for my curly teenage daughter. This is a fantastic moisture spray. I use the product not as a curl definer or a to provide hold because it does not work for that. However as a moisturizer for refreshing curls or for braided/twisted styles it is FANTASTIC. Another winner for Kinky Curly. The key to this product line is knowing what a product was designed for and how to use it. A tip for appplication: I do not spray on my hair. I spray 15-20 pumps in my hand an apply to sections.
So far it's holding up on the frizz end of the deal but there is no hold whatsoever. Also, when I applied this to my hair while it was wet, it made my hair VERY DIFFICULT to comb through! I couldn't even use it on my whole head. Also, it sprays in a single stream so be warned.
This product doesn't go a long way and probably not the best on the market for 2nd day hair. However, it was the first I've tried and I did get excited that I could use something on my wild 2nd day hair and/or same day frizzy hair. If I used it for frizz then I would used the pomade with it after it dried. I love Kinky-Curly products, but I am looking for less products for the results I am wanting to achieve which is soft, moisturized, bouncy, and frizz free hair. Perhaps it just takes a lot of products to achieve this look. I will continue my research!
I'd say this is an above-average serum/2nd day hair product. It's not sticky and it does smooth out hair. I wouldn't say the results are show stopping (very hard to achieve on 2nd day hair!), but I'll continue to use this.
It's worth experimenting with this to see what works best for you. It's not enough hold on its own, but works great as an alternative to serums, under a gel like KCCC. I use it on soaking wet hair before I scrunch dry and apply other products. It leaves my hair shiny, soft, and well moisturised, and helps to smooth down frizzies. Not great for second-day refreshing in my experience - better for initial smoothing. A bottle lasts well!
LOVE this!I'm new to my curls, and this website helped alot so I'm returning the favor. This product is great for curl revival, I even used it on bed head and it turned out great. I spray directly on my curls and scrunch, then I scrunch some more later to soften the curls becauze they can get a little crunchy. I would buy it agin.
I like this product, except I don't like the lavender, the smell fades but I don't like the feeling on my hands or my scalp. I squirt it out into my hands, and scrunch it in. At first my hair feels thin and crispy--don't freak out! Just scrunch it, and maybe scrunch it some more later, and you will get big hair (if you like that!) My curls were not as "fat" as I like, but they were cute and I like not having silicone on my face. I am going to try the Curling Custard next time I go to Whole Foods, and if I like that, this is going to my neice. (or back to the store to get a refund :p)
Meh... This stuff is neither here nor there. Like everyone else said, it sorta skeets out of the bottle and I'm not too fond of the citrus/medicinal smell. It's like a watered down version of KCCC with some glycerin thrown in. I find that plain ole water refreshes my curls much better than this stuff. When used alone on top of a leave-in, the results are nothing to write home about as well. I will not be repurchasing. The KCKT, KCCC and water are all I need.
I have 4B hair and my hair was a frizzy mess after a day of two-strand twists. I sprayed this stuff on my hair and rubbed it in, and viola, the curls or wave pattern came back, no frizz. It is a little drying but I still like the way it looks. I will definitely repurchase, as this is a keeper. Now I will try the Kinky Curly other products too.
This spritz doesn't spray well from the nozzle, but rather shoots out in a stream. I spray it into my hand or onto my fingers and then apply. This spritz works nicely for washNgo hair (or other styles starting from freshly cleaned hair) to tame frizz w/ light to medium hold. It didn't work well as a second day refresher for my washNgo, but okay when changing the loose style to a puff or pinning the front back. I also noticed it seemed to cause a tad bit of dryness (possibly the grapefruit extract) when used often; my simple solution: added a tsp. of jojoba oil, made a noticeable difference!
4a/b hair here... this product definitely holds the curl BUT I'd recommend having your hair spritzed with water before use - gread if you're in a hurry and want some sheen.
On the day I shampoo this product leave me with GREAT curls that are shiny and soft to the touch; however day two is as if nothing every happened and reapplying did not make things better. I even tried rinsing my hair and reapplying but still I don't get the results that I do the day of the wash.
I think this is better for my thin, fine, frizzy hair than the Custard. It really moisturizes without weighing my hair down. I use it with Jane Carter Sculpt and Condition since it doesn't give as much hold as I like, but it's a keeper more so than the Custard in the winter months. I think the Custard will be better for me in the summer to weigh down my hair when it is humid. I love Kinky Curly and Jane Carter products for my hair.
First, as others have noted, this is not really a "spritz" or a "spray." It is more like a runny gel, and comes out of the sprayer in a stream. At first I diluted this about half and half with water in another spray bottle to use as a spritz, but that did not produce any great results. Now I use it without diluting on wet hair. I spray it into my hand and apply it with my hands like a gel. I have very fine, thin, dry hair with loose waves. I currently live in Colorado, and the dry climate makes my hair extremely frizzy. My hair does much better in humid climates and I was looking for something to re-create that effect. I can't use most leave-in, shine, or styling products because they weigh down my hair too much or leave it frizzy. This product is terrific. It makes my hair shiny, wavy instead of frizzy, and my hair look very healthy and thicker. The thickness lasts until I rinse my hair again, but the shine and waves usually don't last past one night's sleep, so I also use this on dry hair, applying with my hands, and it does not weigh it down.
This product does not spray out of the bottle for me: it's too think. HOwever, I have used it straight out of the bottle as a setting lotion and it worked great for that in roller sets. I have also used it the next day to refresh my curls, but I misted my hair with water that I added lavender and tea tree essential oil, then rubbed this serum in my palms and crunched the curls. Worked well.
A great style refresher for next-day hair and it is very moisturizing. It is easy to spray too much though because the nozzle sprays a stream (if that makes sense). I usually put this in a diffrent spray bottle to use it because I like mists. For best results, I let it soak into my hair before I try to separate my coils. If you don;t like glycerin, this may not be the product for you.
I didn't quite know how to use this for a while. Then I tried this as a curl booster before I put on my styling products. There was a big difference. It seems to help for my curls and get them to "set" and clump better than without it. It gave me lots of shine too. I'll repurchase.
At first, I did not know how to use this. So I put it on a shelf for months. Pulled it back out and now use it on dry hair to do braids or twists. Works well when you apply it to particular pieces of hair versus all over.
This product works really well for me as a serum. I didn't like it any other way. I use it on days where frizz may be an issue - high dewpoint, humidity, rainy etc .. you get the idea !! After applying all of my styling products, I spray some in my hand & scrunch it in. I then diffuse. It helps prevent frizz. I didn't like it as a curl refresher or a styler on its own, but as a serum - it's a keeper.
Well, one curl deducted because it stinks. Luckily the smell doesn't last. This is not a spray, its a serum. Alone it won't revive second day hair, but it does calm the frizz down after spraying with water and scrunching, or after going to the gym.
4a - At first I was apprehensive about this product. I sprayed it on and then put it in my palm and it did not work for me. But then, I squirted a bit on my finger tips and took pieces of hair and twirled the ends that were a bit flat from being slept on and Viola!
I use this product for two strand twists sometimes. I will not be repurchasing. It does not "refresh" my KCCC style.
