Kinky Curly Custard questions
Thanks kathymack! Just a FEW more questions:
- How do you determine dew points, and do I really have to do this since I live in San Francisco? I've seen stuff on the boards about dew points and I'm totally confused. Is it the same as humidity? Not sure!
- Isn't it just enough to know that one either lives in a more humid climate or not? I've lived in very humid, somewhat moist like here in SF, and the arid southwest. It took a long time for my hair to adjust to arid climate, but the minute I moved away, it just loved returning to more moisture in the air here in SF and is a good bit curlier here than it ever was in New Mexico, esp. with the hard water there. My hair LOVES humidity and curls up the more humid it is. I don't try to stop it either - been there done that many years ago before finding good cutters for curly hair.
- Do you use a SEPARATE curl-enhancer, or do you consider the KCC to be your curl enhancer - your answer was not quite clear here. So you use jellies as your stylers, or curl enhancers? Still not sure here.
I tend not to layer products, for two reasons, expense, and laziness. I prefer to just scrunch in just one into wet hair, scrunching in further with a microfiber towel, and then let it air dry. I never heat treat, as I do color my hair.
Last but not least, the KCC would be a BIG splurge for me, as I'm either drugstore, or Sally's level for prices. I'm sure the products you use are lovely, but I have a feeling they are out of my price range. With a little more clarity, and hopefully some other people will chime in here, it will help me decide if it's really worth it for me. However, I do tend to spend far more for my hair cuts than products LOL!
@Rustina - Thanks for your input too! I never use leave-ins - they make my hair limp, and I'm kind of leery of layering products. I've tried a couple of times and my hair usually ended up gunky and dull - ugh! Then I had to wash the stuff out right away.
One other note, since my hair is very thick, even though it's only in an inverted bob, I have to apply lots of product to get it through my hair. A nickel-sized blob of anything basically takes care of one little section of my hair. For instance, I use TABLESPOONS full of conditioner, and my gel, hence the having to go on the cheap side with products. I'd go through a $20-tube of something in short order LOL!
