Kinky Curly line on sale at Target

Like Tree2Likes

I went to Target, but they didn't have the price cuts. However, the Target I go to only carries KCCC and KCKT. The one I went to today, though, has the shampoo and spritz. Usually I have to go to the mall to get the shampoo, and I hadnt tried the spritz yet. I bought it (heeheehee) and love it! Gets rid if frizz and might be a new HG!!!

So if it weren't for this post, I wouldn't have gotten the spritz. So thank you!

I'm in Illinois too -- I went over to 'my' store in Glendale Heights, just to check. My store has never had Kinky-Curly on the shelves before, but I went to the Target website and according to the site, it was in stock there. I was so excited!

When I got there, there were no Kinky-Curly products anywhere (although the website still shows it as in stock). I couldn't see a place anywhere on the shelves where it might have been, so I think they must not actually carry it.

Where in the store are you guys finding it? The way my store is laid out, there's cosmetics, and then an aisle with 'organic/natural' products (that's where they have Boots, Burts Bees, Desert Essence, SheaMoisture, Giovanni). Then there's an aisle or two of skin care, then regular hair products (shampoo, conditioner, styler). The last hair care aisle has a little section for ethnic hair care as well. I checked all those areas with no luck.

My store doesn't carry Curls or Miss Jessie's products either. I just don't get why the site says it's in stock at my store, when it clearly isn't carried there. Argh!

The suburban stores here don't stock it since those stores are too white. Out of the two that do stock it, one is in the city itself in a racially diverse area. The other is in a black majority neighborhood.

Its not a good idea to buy products from these types of places you are better off ordering them direct im a licensed cosmetologist and we were always told to never buy product from stores like target walmart ect because they have the ability to water down the product i just read two reviews where ppl said they used these products from target and they did not work if they work for you great but if not thats probably why and that maybe why they are so cheap i just thought i would share that information with you
Thanks allaboutcurls, I must say though my first purchase was online and the knot today I bought at Target was no different and works the same.
The products I list in my sig are among ones I use with some regularity (I do use some products more often than others). I like having a variety of products I can use because my hair seems to like it when I switch things up and don't use ONLY one product to cleanse, or cowash, or DT, etc.

As with most products, I like alternating DTs, too. For manufacturer's DTs, I like CJ Curl Rehab a lot, but I also used CJ Argan and OO. For homemade DTs, I usually mix 1 tbsp each of honey, EVOO, and a CG conditioner (Most often DC OneC, but plenty of times I've also used CJ Argan and OO in this mix). To my homemade DTs, I also sometimes mix in silk amino acids or honeyquat.

Whether I'm using a manufacturer's or a homemade DT, one thing that I feel has been making a big difference is using a heat therapy wrap for about 20 minutes or so.

I think my hair does better when I switch up products as well. The only problem for me is trying to decide which products my hair would really like.

I got the SAA (silk amino acids) and honeyquat online from LotionCrafter.com. You can get a heat wrap online, too, or at Sally's (where I got mine). It's just a cap with pockets all over where you insert these gel packets that come with it. You put the whole thing in the microwave (follow the instructions that come with it), and then you put it on your hair (to which you've already applied a DT and covered with one of those shower cap things). The gel packets hold heat, so you can leave the cap on for 20 or more.

I looked in my Target today (a very suburban location) and they had literally JUST begun putting Kinky Curly on the shelf when I was there, in the teeny tiny ethnic hair section, they were resetting the whole section and were also adding the Curls for Target line. KCCC (8oz.) was only $4.24, that was the regular price. Everything else Kinky Curly was $11.99, I scanned them all to make sure the shelf tags were right.

The Curls stuff ranged from $5.48 to $10.99, there were 5 or 6 things to choose from. I got the Lavish Curls Moisturizer, it was $5.48.

I just looked at Target online, and the price for KCCC 8 oz. is $15.29! I am not really sure why they have clearance pricing on this in the store, but it is a new product for this location and $4.24 appears to be the regular price, no orange stickers or anything like that.

Confused by this whole thing, but thinking I better go back and stockpile!!!
