Smile Kinky Curly line on sale at Target

Just was at my local Target to pick some Curling Custard up and the 8oz was priced at $4.98. I couldn't believe it and did a quick price check and that is what it came up for. Knot Today, Come Clean and Spiral Spritz where all $2.98. I picked up 6 Curling Cistards, 4 Knot Today's, one shampoo and one spiral spritz for $49 and change, I think they maybe clearing them out, but the price wasn't marked as clearance or even as on sale. Curly girls may want to check their local Targets!

Day 3: Curly Kinks Satin Roots, Coil Jam
Day 4: IAGirl's PT, KBB DT, FSG

Co-Kra gel is my own concoction of okra boiled in coconut milk. It is a cross between FSG and KCCC and leaves my hair very soft and shiny

Oh man that is an amazing deal!!! I was at my Target earlier this week and I didn't see any sale pricing though. Hm. I just ordered Knot Today and got it from online, but I love it so I would be willing to pick up some more for later if it's that price!

I've noticed everyone talking about these products, but I'm a little chicken on trying them out. Do they work well for fine hair? I think my porosity level is somewhere in the middle (still trying to figure this out though).

I have pretty fine hair and normal porosity, and KCKT was the first leave-in that I actually liked (most other leave-ins I'd tried before then just sat on my hair and made it feel "product-y".)

I use some infusium 23 leave-in when I need to freshin up my curls or tame them in the mornings. It seems to work fine for me, though I haven't experimented with anything else. I'm still pretty new with all of these curly products. I've always noticed that when I do see some of these brands they're normally in the ethnic aisle. I've always thought that since my hair isn't "ethnic" or very "kinky" these products would not work for me. This site has actually taught me a lot about stuff like this though. But now that the door to all of these products have been open up to me (so to speak) I have no clue really what products to try. I've also wasted money on some products that have fates and cones in them that I bought right before I started CG.

Anyways, I'm rambling. What I want to ask is, what products have you found that work for you? and how do you do your DTs? I noticed your ingredients in your siggy.

I haven't tried the KCCC yet (but if I can get it for that price at Target I will be trying it very soon!). I use KCKT as a co-wash- it has amazing slip and it's really nice and light.

All I can say is OMG. I have never gotten Kinky Curly products -- never even dared to sniff them, I should add -- because they're so darn expensive. But $5 is basically what I pay for my drugstore gels, and I've always been intrigued by KCCC. Why not now?!?! Although, it doesn't say anything about a sale on the Target website. Hmmm. That's so cool, though!! I hope the stuff works out great for you!

I just checked the website too. I have a feeling I'm going to be venturing to Target after church tomorrow. I seriously considered leaving my house to go to Target when I saw the original post, but I had just gotten back from a karate tournament two hours away- no energy to move! But I really thought about it for this!

Maybe it was your Target. I bought Knot Today today, and it was regular price at my Target.

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.

Wow. I only caught about half of what you said with all of the abbreviations. I'm still a newbie with all of this stuff. Where do you get silk amino acids and I've never heard of honeyquat. How do you do a heat wrap?

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.

:O

can you go buy some more and we'll pay you + shipping??? You could totally become a Kinky Curly dealer :P

Definitely going to Target tomorrow. I've always wanted to try the Custard but it's so expensive.

I checked the website and they are still regular price there. Maybe my Target is clearing them out?? I went to the one in Oswego, Il. I may try to go to the one in North Aurora later today. I'll post what I find when I get there. I would buy for all, but I bought all the Curling Custard they had left. Do you think it could be a pricing error?
I love KCCC, but don't use it as much as I would like due to the price, I'm set for at least the rest of the year, maybe even the next two.

This kind of makes me really excited I'm hoping it's the same at my Target and that they haven't already been cleared out.

I went to the one in Noeth Aurora and they were regular price there. Idid go back to the one in Oswego and the prices hadn't gone up. There was a lady ther and she told me she picked up five of the KCCC yesterday when she saw the deal. Idid pick up another three KT and two more of the Spritz. I wish they would have had more do the KCCC.
Sorry guys, I really thought that the deal would be everywhere. I'll check again this Wed, see if they restock. If they do and the price hasn't gone up I'll let you know. I wouldnt mind picking them up and mailing them out to whoever wants them. It's such a good deal.
