I know it can get tiresome for some people to read the same questions over and over again, but I for one am always interested in new application ideas...ESPECIALLY for KCCC. One thing that I do when I'm stumped with application of a very popular product is to search and then read the threads with the most replies.
Personally, I always want more volume, and it seems to me that diffusing and more root handling creates more volume, so my suggestion would be to do just the opposite, and more scrunching creates tighter curls, so you can tone down the scrunching too, to get looser curls. KCCC, I believe, is actually designed to elongate your curls.
Some of the CJ products have also been known to elongate - Aloe Fix elongates for some curlies.
You could also try a search on some other keywords, such as ELONGATE, ELONGATION, LESS VOLUME. I won't read those threads . I like tight curls with oodles of volume. Oh, one more thing, I think elongation and less volume is more desirable with 3C's and above, so you could peruse those sub-forums as well.
Good luck with your search.
Thank you - very helpful!!
