you are just too cute. i almost wish i would have hung on to my kink curly products a bit longer because that was so not the way i was applying the product. ah well at least it gives me some ideas on how to apply my other products. oh and it also makes me want to go out and buy that jane carter stuff. urgh.

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.

Umm, you mean outside of what I did in this video? Just co-washing with Suave, really. I shampoo on an as-needed basis (aka, when I get too stupid with the protein), condition heavily every day or two, and don't DT. No 'cones, very low on the protein, and pretty heavy on the oils. I've been CG-ish for over 9 months, so it's taken me a while to get here.

Yep, sorry. How many times a week do you co wash with suave and what suave do you use? What poo do you use when you do poo? Thanks.

I use the Coconut or Vanilla Floral 4-5 times a week. Don't really like water-washing, using conditioner just gets me cleaner. When I poo, it's either with Jessicurl HCC or TJ's Refresh.

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!!

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!

Ok, a few more questions if you don't mind. How much condish do you use to co wash and how much do you use to conditon/detangle? Lastly, after you rinse off the suave then you apply the kinky curly leave in, right? Thanks.

Lol, I don't mind questions. I use a little less than a palmful to co-wash, and enough of my heavier condish to be able to detangle with my fingers (a couple tsps). I apply the KCKT after I've rinsed out the heavier condish... what can I say, I loves me lots of conditioner.

Currently, I'm rotating B2B Pom, AOHR, TIGIMM, and Oyin HH.

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?

I like them both tremendously. The AOHR is heavier, but the Oyin can also be used as a leave-in, for me. I'm a fan of versatility, so I'd go with the Oyin, but I don't think you'd miss with either of them.

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. =)

It might hold up, you never know.

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.
