I don't know if it's any "one" ingredient or just a result of the ingredients in the formula when they're all blended, but it definitely can take a ridiculous amount of time to dry. I tried it without the leave-in, and it did dry faster, but it was so crunchy it cracked, and when I scrunched I got frizz. Plus, the middle parts of my clumps still weren't dry.

The ingredients say there is "marshmallow" in it. I don't know if marshmallow extract is as gooey as the sugar marshmallows we put in hot chocolate, but maybe it's the culprit. I have a bottle of agave nectar I use for sweetening tea, and it's super thick, too, like honey. Aloe sap can be pretty thick, too.

I found a curl custard I prefer to KCCC and one of the reasons is it doesn't take as long to dry, but also it doesn't get as crunchy. The crunch is more "rubbery" (if that makes sense...). It's 4Naturals Spring Back Custard. Ingredients: Water, Sucrose, Propylene Glycol, Pectin, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol, Chlorphenesin, Citric Acid, Fragrance

KCCC was a product I could never get to work consistently. It would tease me the odd time and give me perfect hair, but I could never depend on it. Even with diffusing my hair, it took forever to dry. I gave up on it for myself.

Ironically it works gone for my daughter's wavy hair. She diffuses it until it is firm and the curls have formed. Her hair is really long. She just pineapples it and goes to bed. It always looks great, but is often still damp in the am.
Type: 3a fine & dense,with normal porosity, terrible product junkie
ROUTINE: LI, enhancer, gel, plop with Curlease towel, serum product (either CIAB or Gel-les'c), clip & diffuse.
Too many favourite products to list ... I finally have my routine that works and alot of products to choose from. My product stash is huge, but well loved !!!

My routine is after co-washing I apply my leave in and I always use kinky curly knot today when I'm using the custard since they're formulated to go together. Then I scrunch with a microfiber towel or t-shirt to get out excess moisture and encourage clumping. I actually scrunch a lot to give my hair a head start on drying. Then I divide my hair into two parts, apply a little more kinky curly knot today to the crown and top to middle segments of my hair. That is the area that is the most frizzy. Then I tip my head down so my hair fans out in the front of me, apply the custard evenly to the left and right sides of my hair and scrunch and pump upwards. My hair dries in 1- 1 1/2 hours tops. It is not the longest hair in the world but it certainly is not the shortest. Or maybe one hour drying is a lot for some people? Especially working mommies. But then every mommy is a working mommy.
