Kinky Curly Going Out of Business

Thanks, redcelticcurls. I was just searching and had a hard time finding it. The thing that I love about KCCC on KT are that they are all natural, and work well together or separately depending on your hair. Every sometimes has different results, but they're good products. I will be so angry and upset if she is driven out of business. Maybe we the consumers can write him an angry letter or something. Everyone has the right to make a living for themselves. I still believe she came out with her products first. Or if she's forced to, change the name. But she shouldn't have to. I guess I better try to find some more fast before none can be found.

I also read about a lawsuit by Hair Rules against Kinky Curly, which makles little sense. Kinky Curly was around first AFAIK. I remember being confused when Hair Rules came out with a product with a similar name.

Here's a link, but I don't have a subscription to this service.

ETA: from what I found, the Hair Rules line was founded in 2007 and Kinky Curly has been around before that. Weird. It's be soooo pissed if she was put out of business by a lawsuit from some new overpriced line that uses crap like xane cone and mineral oil.

I just called some Rickys in NY and they say they havent had any Kinky Curly for a while now but didnt confirm or deny the going out of business story.

Oh CRAP if she's being sued.....Oh man that's enough to put any small business OUT of BIZ this can't be good!!!!
I wonder if she didn't copyright her name???? I would think that would be the only way he could sue her...right? But beyond that - must find/order KCCC ASAP!!

Yeah! Let's write him a nasty letter!

BTW I was able to find some Knot Today on honeyfig.com, however, they are sold out of Kinky Curly Curling Creme.

I wouldn't buy his stuff anyway from what I read of the ingredients list, but you can bet I wouldn't buy it now even if their stuff was great. The ethics of it all ticks me off.

I do hope that Shelley had the name copyrighted. I'd hate to see her lose for being technically wrong, and he'd win by legality, but with poor ethics.

Med/Coarse, porous curly.
shelley is a business woman first and foremost, so im sooo not worried about her. she's not home mixing up stuff in the kitchen and selling it, she has a full fledged business. dickey seems like he's being a crybaby, but im not worried. this will work out, cause ill will straight up revolt if my kccc isn't made. SERIOUSLY.

My logical side says she'll be fine.

My righteous ire side wants to kick Dickey in the nads.

I'm already annoyed by his use of chemicaled models and what seem to be shillers posing on hair sites posting glowing reviews. Now this?

Any type of lawsuit is gonna cost money and laywers can be really expensive so I think she should have prepared herself better...something is defintely going on ...too many stores are out of the product for too long.

Oh say it ain't so. There is no product like KCCC. This lawsuit is very disturbing. I hope Dickey loses money. KCCC's been around for far longer and that is very easy to prove.

Maybe we need to start a fund for SAVE KCCC!!!!!!! Shelley needs to start a Blog or something to raise money to save her company!!!!! This is just terrible.....TERRIBLE!!!!!!!!!!

I'm afraid to use my KCCC now for fear of never being able to find it again. I've been milking it as it is.....

What?! NO! This can't be true!! O_O

I need my KCCC D:
3b/c coarse, porous (I think), and THICK! Mod CG since: 10/11/08
Avoiding humectants and protein!
Figures..... I used Kccc with my last wash and I got 3 days out of it. It was going to be my soap bar/styling combo once a week. Now it's back to the drawing board with what to pair with the bar. Panic is right and infuriating!

I was at Wilshire Beauty yesterday and they were out of everything except for a couple of bottles of KT and Spiral Spritz. The clerk got a bottle of Come Clean for me from the back, and said they had just had a KC event the week before. She also said they are getting ready to add the overnight treatment next month. They had a huge KC poster in their window.

I hope this just turns out to be a horrible rumor - KCCC is my HG!

Oh no, I love all her products that I tried. (knot today, come clean and of course curly custard).

The lawsuit worries me. It doesn't seem right though, as said, she's been around far longer than Hair Rules.

I'm not panicking yet, since it doesn't make sense, but this better not be true!!!

i really hope she doesn't go out of business. she doesn't deserve to. this guy who runs hair rules is a total weakling like what, he is sooo cheap. i know justice prevails, and the courts take alot into consideration, but ireally hope the court sees that she is innocent and deserves her line, with no name change.
