Curl Factor - Curly Kinks??

Has anyone tried this new gel from Curly Kinks. It seems like it is like the Coil Jam but without the glycerin. I just broke down and ordered it…couldn't wait. I loved the Coil Jam but the glycerin doesn't always work for my hair. So curious to try this.
It was released on Black Friday that's when i ordered it but I haven't received my order yet. I'm sure reviews will start coming in in the next few days when people getting their stuff.

Thanks! Can't wait to see what people think.
I love this gel. It is a bit different than Coil Jam. I needed something without glycerine and this gel is great. I get the softest, bounciest curls with great shine and hold. It feels really natural in my hair yet I get frizz free results. This is one of the best products I have tried for my 3a/3b curls that tend to be dry and frizzy. Love this!!
I love her products! While I don't have issues with glycerin, I wanted to try this one. Even preordered it as soon as it was available. Don't like to review things until I've used them a few times. I've only used it once. I rotate products, so I'll make a point of using it again soon.

Any reviews yet on the Curl Factor? I am out of Coil Jam, and went to re-order but found it was out of stock. However, Curl Factor is in stock.


I'm afraid to risk spending money on a new formula, however, without some comparisons to Coil Jam.

I still really like Curl Factor and actually prefer it just a bit to Curl Jam. To me (everyone's hair is different) Curl Factor has a lighter hold and better shine. I get more natural looking curls. It kind of reminds of the results I get from Pattern Pusha. I use Curl Jam when I want more firm hold and Curl Factor when I want softer looking curls. I definitely get more shine from Curl Factor. Both gels seem equally moisturizing. I also find Curl Factor to be thinner and easier to use then Coil Jam which sometimes can feel sticky to me. I have thin, fine 3a/b, normal porosity hair and use Curl Rehab as a leave in. Hope this helps.
I've used it three times at this point. First two times was in really low dewpoints. Didn't like it as much as the Coil Jam. This week, I used it when the dewpoint was 40. Added Sucragel to the first product and topped it off with the Curl Factor. Hair was much better that day. I still have to experiment with it.

I would love to hear more about this product! Anyone who uses it regularly? Kathymac - are you still using it (don't see it in your nick)? Any additional reviews/thoughts on this product are very welcome! Lots of people seem to love Curl Jam, but Curl Factor has gotten few reviews and no raves, so really curious to hear more.

BTW, the Coil Jam is a go to product for me.

I've bought and used both. I prefer Coil Jam. Curl Factor just seems to be a bit stickier than I prefer and hair can look producty fast. Whereas with Coil Jam, my hair feels more natural and softer and I can get a bit carried away without unfortunate results.

What I want to know is what is up with Curly Kinks. No coil jam in CurlMart and no Facebook update since March. Is the company folding? Anyone having trouble getting their stuff? I wanted to restock.

I ordered from Curly Kinks on 16 August and my order is still listed as "awaiting fulfillment". I have emailed Curly Kinks twice to ask when my order will be shipped but have not received a reply to either query.

At this point I don't know what to do, since I don't even receive a reply.

Any ideas? Anyone having problems with their orders not being shipped?

I should add that all 3 products I ordered are listed on their website as "ships in 5-7 days". It has now been 22 days and 15 working days. I had so looked forward to trying these products...

Kathymac, anyone: do you know what is going on with Curly Kinks? I don't know what to do - if they aren't going to deliver my order I would like my money back but don't know how to go about it.
Or is it normal for deliver times to drag out like this, and to not receive a reply to queries?
