First off, you are soo freaking cute, love you and your video! Second, what is your entire hair routine? My hair is around the same length and the same curl type. Thanks.

I've been CG-ish for over 9 months, so it's taken me a while to get here.

Thanks for taking the time to do this! I usually rake my products in but I'm gonna try scrunching them in next time. I don't know if it's all the raking or that I now have a looser curl patten (henna), but my curls have been turning out stringier lately. Anyways, off to experiment!!
Texture: Fine
Porosity: Low
Elasticity: Low
Density: Medium/High...I think


~~Lots of Little S-Curls and Corkscrews~~
You are an absolute doll! Thanks so much for taking the time to share!
Wonderful video and so helpful. I have KCCC and have success on and off with it. I don't have KT, so I use SheaM underneath it. I might try a different leave-in.
Thanks so much for being willing to do that for all of us curlies!
Growing out my curls. White hair, fine to medium texture but a lot of it. Low to medium porosity. Botticelli curls -- 2c/3a mix. My hair loves protein.

Do you mind if I ask you how much you like/love the AOHR and Oyin HH? My hair is similar to yours and I have been considering both of them. If you were going to recommend one over another, which would you recommend?

Thanks for the great video. I haven't tried those products as I am doing well with the ones I have at the moment...finally found the combo that works for me!
2c/3aMiii

Loving JC and CK products... Been loving them for 3 years...looking to branch out and try new things!!!
Great video-now you got me looking for a 3c video(or something close to it). Hope it works just as good.
You made me want to try CC and KT now. I doubt my curl pattern would hold up to it though.

And on the unoriginal, but still true side, you have gorgeous hair and it was a very informative video. =)

When I first tried it, there was only one other 3B using it. The others were 3C and up.

It has made the rounds enough now that other types like it too. I was pleasantly surpised to see 2ca nd 3as liking it too.
Kiva! Microfinance works.

Med/Coarse, porous curly.
