Does anybody use KCKT + KCCC combo?

I switched to KCKT as my leave in since it's just about the only thing I can find around here without humectants. It's been doing very well for my hair when it dries, and I am quite pleased. I use KCCC on top of it, and my hair's texture by feel immediately changes into something weird. I can't really explain it... but it's like it has 20x more hold with KCKT than any other leave in I've used with it. It's not a bad thing, it just shocked me when it happened, and then kept happening.

Has anybody else experienced this?

RO/LI: Sevi Pumpkin Seed DC / CJ Argan & Olive Oil, KCKT, YTBbs
DT: Coconut Oil + scalp massage
OIL/STYLER: SM Elixir / KCCC
COLOR: henna, amla & indigo
You know I have them both and I haven't tried them together very many times. I think i wasn't impressed before but I think I will try again. Sorry I couldn't really help.


Low-poo: Yes to Cucumbers, Renpure Coconut Cream
Condish: GVP CB, V05 Vanilla Mint Tea
Leave in: Giovanni Direct Leave In
PT: Hair not responding well to protein anymore
Styler: Sweet Curls Crazy Crunchy FSG, Naturelle gel cocktailed with Paul Mitchell Tea Tree gel

Go Red Wings!


When I tried them together, I got less curl than when using kccc with other leave in conditioners. How were you applying the kckt? On dripping hair, or damp hair? Just curious.
2c/3a, dense, fairly coarse, normal porosity and elasticity, bsl curly, WL wet
Low poo: Giovanni 50 50
Co-wash: down under naturals, tresume naturals
RO: AOHR
LI: Giovanni Direct, Desert Essence curl cream
Stylers: kccc, HE smu, brhg
Oils: coconut, argan or evoo
I absolutely LOVE the results I get with them together, but my hair just immediately changes into this weird feeling thing when I add the KCCC. I put my products in when my hair is wet. I squeeze the excess water out so it's not totally soaking and dripping everywhere.

2C/3A, fine, higher porosity.
I actually have a pic of me using both. I liked my hair. But I like other conditioners better. I do love me some kccc though!

I've used them both, but separately. I haven't thought of using them together, but that's mostly because I prefer the results of KCKT on my dry, second-day hair, rather than on my freshly-washed, wet hair.

I'll probably try the combo of the two of them together at some point, but right now I'm really liking the mix of KCCC and the As I Am leave-in, they seem to complement each other nicely.

Well anyhow, they are doing wonders for my hair right now. Anything with glycerin is a disaster at the moment, although my hair loves it in the summertime.

I did, and while I did not continue to do so (but then again, I was using KCCC incorrectly for my hair anyway), I never noticed that my hair felt weird.

Once KCCC is in stock again on iHerb, I will use it together with KCKT as a LI now that I seem to have figured out what application method seems to do the trick for my hair.

How weird is that?! Maybe it's just one of those products hair can get 'used to'? Who knows!

Before CG my hair would "get used" to product, but that would be after 2 big bottle purchases worth. I'm not used to products not working after 5 days. That's funny that happened to you too Allie. I wonder what's in it that causes that. I was thinking it might be the coconut oil for me, but I'm not sure.

I definitely agree, I am beginning to rotate products as well.
