Is the kinky curly product line good for "normal" hair properties?

Like Tree1Likes

Now, I obviously don't mean normal in a derogatory way. I mean when I had my analysis done my results were all "normal." Porosity, texture and width. So, is kinky curly (like knot today and KCCC) good for these properties?

I don't see why KKKT and the gel would not be good for your hair. Trick though is to apply the KKKT (leave in) before the gel.
I've heard that before. My hair gets weighed down very easily though, so I never put two products in it at once. That's my only fear in trying the combo. I was thinking to just use the kckt as a rinse out and then the gel

You don't have to use KCKT as a leave in or even at all. I get the same results using KCCC with or without KCKT. I think it (I mean KCCC) could work just fine for you.

I've gotten my routine down to the bare essentials, finally
Wash: Suave Tropical Coconut
Leave-in: Suave Everlasting Sunshine, detangle with Denman brush
Gel: LAL Sport or Wet Look
Scrunch with flour sack towel, plop 10 minutes, air dry
Refresh with either plain water or Suave/water mix
Thanks. The only reason I would use kckt would be cuz it's good for detangling. My hair gets knots like crazy >_< and it always hurts when I detangle in the shower. I hear everyone saying kckt is great for that

My properties are not at all like yours, but I did get my hands on KCCC and KCKT recently. My hair gets weighed down very easily as well, so layering products is a big no-no for me. However, with KCCC I have been able to use a LI for the first time in my life! The LI I'm talking about is KCKT. It is not a "requirement" though, I get great results either with or without it. I love its detangling properties.

There are a lot of threads about Kinky-Curly, so I would definitely take some time to read up on those. Most people feel that there is a learning curve to it and I definitely agree with that, but I must say that I love these products and that I am very positive about them.

Thanks Laura. I'll see if I can get some samples then. The knot today I'll just get from target

It may all depend on your hair type as to whether you should use the leave in before the gel. I have 4a type hair and if I don't put the KKKT (leave in) before the KKCC ( gel ), my hair is crunchy.
I use the KCKT as the leave in and KCCC after. I revisited the KCCC again with more appreciation for this product this time around. My experience: Don't overdo the KCCC, a little bit goes a looong way.

I'm definitely in the minority on KCKT. I've tried to use it repeatedly and I don't think my hair likes it. It doesn't seem to have good slip and it weighs my hair down even as a rinse out. I can't figure out why that would be, as the ingredients aren't ones that are normally problematic for me. It's so weird since so many people love this as a detangler. I'm curious to know how it works for you, sKorpio.

I tried it this morning as a rinse out. I don't think it weighed my hair down. It did help somewhat to detangle, but I feel like I had to use a lot. Maybe cuz it doesn't distribute well? Like it has a very thin consistency. I do like the smell of it though and I don't have any adverse effects so far (this could change with time). But it's not like a miracle product for me like it seems to be for many

Perhaps in the minority, but not alone. KCKT did nothing for my hair that something else didn't do better. It happens, even with the best of products.

The KKKT should be used as a leave in not rinse out. I myself love it. But I confess that it was not always like that. Sometimes you put a product aside because you are not too impressed with it but then one day you decide to try it again, and you are surprised to see a different result. For example I was told to first use the KKKT and then the gel (KKCC) when styling my 4a hair. While the curls we're beautiful, I hated the hard/crunchy hold. So I stored the products in a drawer of junk. LOL
But then after reading so many good review maybe a year later, I decided to give it another try. Don't ask me why but the results were good. Beautify curls and no crunchiness. But hey every hair is different I guess.
I just got the KCCC and am absolutely in love with it!! I don't use the KCKT though. I used to when I had long hair and remembered loving it. It's only a leave in for the detangling aspect, a lot of people seem to use it as a leave in for like a conditioner. If used appropriately, it does it's job well.

Thanks! My problem is getting volume at the roots. I always have flat roots. It drives me insane. I've tried everything

I've only used the KCKT and i have to say it did nothing for my hair in terms of detangling, but i have found it works well as a sort of "gel" for me (i scrunch it in at the end of my routine in the areas that tend to get a little too poofy as they dry)
And your hair looks great! It's so shiny an voluminous. For volume at the roots have you tried plopping? I sometimes find plopping for about 30 mins after styling gives the roots a little boost. Hth!
