KCCC seems to be inexplicably super-hydrating and drying at the same time, at least that's been my experience with it. To explain:
I, like many other curlies here, have noticed it takes a much longer time than usual for hair with KCCC to dry (and that's can even happen if you're using a conservative amount), suggesting it has a heavy conditioning effect for some of us. That's why I wonder if the KCCC along with the conditioner might be over-conditioning your hair. ... At the same time, KCCC can seem dry sometimes to the touch. Maybe you could try using way less of it, and see if that helps.
