I'm wondering if you need more moisture. I did not find the KCKT to be moisturizing enough for my hair as a LI, and I can't imagine it would be any better as a RO or cowash. I also found the shampoo extremely stripping. But I do love the KCCC. I would suggest trying a more moisturizing conditioner to see if that helps, toss the KC shampoo (if you want a good low poo I love the SM shampoo), and maybe do a weekly DT.

fine, dense, normal porosity/elasticity, dry climate
My favorite brands are Kinky Curly, As I am, Curly Kinks, Curl Junkie, and Darcy's Botanicals. Also love sealing with oils (loving argan oil right now) and styling with jelly products (KCCC is my current favorite). Mostly trying to keep it simple!
