Kinky Curly Going Out of Business

I wouldn't be panicking except for the fact that you can not order KCCC from her site. In the past, there would be a sold out with an estimated available date. Not right now though, I got a msg. saying they don't ship out of the US?! I'm in the US! What is THAT about?

I haven't tried her products since I'm very new to the CG method, and I still haven't sorted out what products I do and don't like, so I haven't gotten around to the KC brand. But I feel terrible for how upset you guys are - clearly the stuff must be good, or this wouldn't be the news that it is.

I know that feeling of, *"Nooooo!!" when you hear news like this about your favorite product - my hair and skin are so finicky, there are very few things I can use with any degree of success. So I'll just say, I can sympathize with all of you KC fans, and I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you!

(*I accidentally scared the pants off of the poor counter-guy at Estee Lauder when he told me that Time Zone was discontinued to make room for Future Perfect the last time I went to buy a back-up jar of it in December - I believe my reaction was also, "NOOOO!!!". I do know the poor guy jumped a bit before I apologized for giving him a heart attack. I trusted his judgement, bought a jar of Time Zone instead, and am now getting down to the bottom of my last jar of Future Perfect before starting Time Zone and hoping that it works just as well or better. So, I hear ya, and good luck to you KC curlies!)

[quote=Hakim Nuraldin;883859]BTW I was able to find some Knot Today on honeyfig.com, however, they are sold out of Kinky Curly Curling Creme. /quote]

Thank you for letting me know. I just placed another order.I useall of her products. Shampoo, Styling Gel, Knot Today, Curling Custard. They are far the best!

It took me several months and tons of money before finding Kinky Curly. Not sure what I am going to do now. They are the only products that work for my hair and do not irritate my scalp.

I wish her the best. I hope she is able to emerge from this.

Thank again,

Well, I DID read somewhere on the internet that she's being sued by the other guy who makes kinky-curly products, because of the name. I don't understand that, because I thought she came out with her stuff first, and to add to that, his products didn't do a thing for my hair, except make it look and feel like I put dirt in it.
I'll try to find the link and get back to you all.

why are they suing her? She came out with Kinky-Curly years ago? anthony Dickey just started his last year????? What the hell is going on?
And this law suit is dated Nov 2008.

Never ordered from them before, so I can't say if they're good/reliable.
I found a coupon for 20% off that is still working: MERCHANT

Some other sites still have the curling custard as well (urbanbella, naimies)

Even though I was just in there and saw that they didnt have any I just called the same store and asked them if they had any Kinky curly just to see what they would say and they said no and that "the company is having a lot of problems." I asked if they would have any next week and again they said no they would get any back in because the company is having 'issues'
I was hoping to speak to the same guy that I saw talking to the girl since he seemed to have some more information about what was going on.
Now I want to slap myself for not paying more attention to what they were saying. They were talking out loud standing there in the store and I just started paying attention when I heard with my own ears the words kinky Curly and out of business. The girl he was talking to had some amazing natural hair that was up in a ponytail....she was looking for KCCC too.

I thought he was talking crap but now that I just called it seems to be some truth to it.

Oh no! I really hope all the "problems" and "issues" get worked out. I love KCCC and KCKT and would have a very serious gaping hole in my product rotation without them.

Last night, I saw 2 jars of the KCCC on eBay. Don't know if they are still available. Since I'm in the TWA stage and still in the process of rediscovering what my hair likes these days, I'm not totally upset about this, yet. I got some samples off the swapboard and it seems to work well with my hair but their are some other products I also want to try before spending the money on the KCKT and KCCC. Just hope that if I decide this is it, that it's available.

I hope these rumors aren't true. I love the KT and KCCC and was just thinking I would like to try Come Clean. I just tried the KT and KCCC on my daughter, who normally doesn't wear her hair curly. They worked beautifully on her.

I wish the owner of KC well!

Hopefully, she isn't going out of business.

My hair life is so screwed without KCCC! This whole ordeal is ridiculous, and I'm really really hoping it gets resolved and that Kinky-Curly stays in business. In the meantime, I think it would be a good idea for all of us to take some deeeeeep breaths and have a calming cup of tea.

Kristy Beauty is out of stock on KCCC and KCKT as well...but they still carry the line, and it does just say out of stock....what a shame there's any type of issue-be it legal or supply problems...
