Default Do I dare say it...??? re:kkkt & kkcc

YES I am still here, still alive still curly ha ha Believe it or not I've been experimenting w/ diff. products this whol time, never finding what products work "just right"!

By just right, I mean something that enhances my curls, doesn't make it crunchy OR noodley, etc. I'll use something and think it's good, then next day blah. and so on & so on...

I finally broke down and bought the famous kinky kurly duo at Whole Foods after reading all of the MUCH conflicting reviews!

I LOVE IT...my hair came out PERFECT today using about a quarter size of KT in soaking wet hair, raking & squishing, then another pea size amount. Then, same technique w/ the KKCC and scrunched w/ my microfiber towel, IMMEDIATELY diffused & wah lah

And I am literally PRAYING that I will get consistent results...that is the biggest negative I have heard about this duo! I made a point to remember exactly the amounts I put in, what I did, etc!!! Here's hoping!!!

Any other wavyish curlies love this duo?

I've been using it for about four years, and it's still my go to combo. Love the stuff.

I am teetering. On falling of the cg wagon but know I prefer curly girl what is the combo you are talking about and where can I get it? I love fsg but around noon it turns into a frizzy mess? And that is using fsg with a lil Epson salt, aloe vera gel and agave nectar so I am open to any suggestions
Thanks all

I get consistently similar results from KCCC on my 3c-4a hair. Its always what I come to when I need a predictable result.
I do not always use the KT. Right now I'm using Elucence MB Conditioner because I have 2 liters of them, and it's working out fine.
My issue is that because my hair is so thick, the lower half roots never dry, so I end up with a relaxed wave instead of a tight curl in that section. I might revisit diffusing to avoid that.

4Melanie! HI! The product is called Kinky Kurly - the leave in condish is "Knot Today" & the gel is "Curling Custard". I'm also going to buy the shampoo "Come Clean" if this continues to give me such great results! You can get it here on curlmart, Whole Foods & I've also heard people talking about it being at Target!! I haven't checked there yet. Let me know if you try it!!!

JoliePoetique! That's so funny that it relaxes yours cuz it makes mine curlier (and that's what I want)! For me, the diffuser is a MUST! I am unable to air dry cuz I don't get enough curl. What do you think my hair type is? When it's wet it doesn't even look curly and I can't sleep on it & get 2nd day "dry" hair. Yet with the right product & A DIFFUSER I get these results (siggy).

Juvjoy, it's so annoying! I think it's also the weight of my hair.

It's hard to tell because I'm on my phone but I would guess 2c-3a?

I've seen ladies and gents of all hair types love this product but we each may have to do different things to get the results we want. Scrunching works for looser curl patterns, but I wind up with a halo of frizz so I prefer to smooth. I think I will always have this in my arsenal because of the quality of ingredients, nice smell, and consistent results.

Oh I meant to say that I LOVE the Come Clean. I have tried a million shampoos from a couple dollars to embarrassingly nearly 40. (shame face). And I like no other shampoo better than the come clean. It's my HG.

First of all, I loooooooooooooooooooooooove your hair!!!!!! Soooo cute!! I've been using the KCKT since December (it's actually the one product I've been using consistently since going mod-CG) and I love it. I wanted to use the KCCC for a while but the price and mixed reviews were holding me back. Last week though, I ordered some from Kathy Mack and I used it once but liked it a lot. I look forward to trying it some more.

Oh sweet! I can't wait to see what you think on a more regular basis! Those are the same exact reasons I had never tried it - the cost & the reviews And thx for the compliment btw. My avatar & siggy were from about a year ago. I've had my hair cut SUPER short since then but it looks almost that length again
