Default Hairline is strait by the end of the day: problem with KCCC?

This is so wierd to me because I have never had a problem with this until I started CG.

My routine yesterday was:

Water wash (I had just had my deva cut the day before and she used the Deva low poo, so I was assuming lowpoo or cowash wouldn't be neccessary)

Kenra Moisturizing Conditioner rinsed out completely.

KCCC applied when my hair is wet, scrunched in to make the squishy seaweed sound, I am extra careful to get even product distribution, hairline included and use it sparingly because when I used too much my hair was shiny and soft, but the curl was weighed down to slight waves by midday.

Scrunched out a bit of water with some birdseye cotton cloth, diffused until 80% dry, clipped the roots, and then airdried.

I am really wanting to love the KCCC, but I have yet to have a great hair day with it. I have also tried it with BRHG 2:1 ratio (2 parts KCCC to 1 part BRHG) and that left my hair WAY producty.

What do you think guys?

For me with KCCC, less is definitely more. I can't use it near my roots either. My avi was taken after my first successful use of KCCC.

I use Kenra also.

I did my co-wash and rinse out. I added small blob of GLI, then two scant knuckles of KCCC topped with HESMU (I think).

I always rake then scrunch all products except gel which I only scrunch with. I take care to keep them directly off my scalp.

If you felt it to be producty, it could be that some residue was left behind by the Deva or too much KCCC. When I was using the same amount of KCCC as others before my hair was always flat and blah. Like you, I was wanting to love it but was about to swap it when I decided to try one last time with leave-in and much much less product.

I agree with whatsercurl as far as my hair goes - less is definitely more, but I also need a strong hold gel over the top of it. I use Biosilk Rock Hard Gelee, my holy grails of holy grails.

Too much of the KCCC definitely weighs me down, & w/o my BRHG, my hair will straighten out after a few hours.

So, for those of you who use KCCC under another product, do you find it really helps vs just gel alone alone? What does KCCC do for you? Give more definition whereas just gel gives only hold?

Gives me curl enchancement and fuller, lighter hair. Gel alone leaves my hair much flatter.
