Hi, I think our hair is similar. I have been using similar products, but what I would suggest is using the Denman BEFORE the KCCC.
I've had great success this week with:
heavy conditioner and only partially rinse out by kind of "throwing" some water at the crown
Sealing with a dime amount of jojoba oil while still in the shower
Brushing out with Denman
Apply KCCC OR KC Coil Jam
Scrunch out moisture with towel
Scrunch in liberal amount of gel or mousse
If I use BRHG as the gel in the last step, I mix it with a little aloe gel so I can still SOTC. I am liking Deva Arc Angel for gel, or HETT mousse for this step.
