Normally I'd tell fine haired curlies to steer clear of the smoothie since it's so rich, but you're also porous and dense. If you've got a lot of hair and it drinks product, maybe the smoothie would be better. But then if you want a tester, then the milk. I don't know if the milk has as much curl enhancing power as the smoothie though. The smoothie has serious curl enhancement. It lives up to its name. I remember when I first bought it taking this one little piece of hair that had gotten a little less curly, more wavy, and putting a drop of the smoothie (diluted with water) on it. Just smoothing it down the strands. Without any coaxing or scrunching that piece of hair turned curly right away. Very impressive.

HoC, why don't you try using your KCKT as a rinse out instead of a leave in? It can do both. If you're using the smoothie (which is really rich) as your leave in/base styler then the KCKT is overkill. But it is great at detangling and it acts as a light conditioner. Have you used it that way yet? I haven't but then I love it is a leave in.

Hair twin, you've made me decide to never try KCKT!

The Smoothie, however, I'm more excited than ever to try!!

In that case just drop that hot mess, HoC! I think your hair's had its say.

P.S. I made some FSG tonight. Can I get a pat on the head from you and Jas, my hair sirens?



Oh dear look what I did with the emoticons. Now that's amusing. Okay I'm going to bed now because I'm getting quite silly.

Hair twin, I make mine as a huge batch and put it into freezer jars. Then I just get out a new jar as I need it!

Though honestly, with the soufflé, I haven't gone back to the freezer to get more lately...
