I would say just get it wet and put your products in it --you won't need as much maybe just start with a good leave-in to see if that yields the results you want. I just got mine done and I love it. I did have different expectations. I had 3b/3c curls before and now my hair is more of a 2a. Since I do still have curly (or wavy), I am still using products and treating it like curly hair (just cutting products with salt out of my routine and now just a good leave in does the trick). Karen's Body Beautiful has no salt in it (I asked them just to make sure) and neither does KCKT nor KCCC. When I just air dry my hair it's a bit fluffy. It's definetly not frizzy like it was before. I'll take fluffy any day! Especially since I can now play with my hair and it doesn't get any bigger!!! Man that's exciting!I had the CKT done on Friday. I left it in for the required three days, then washed it yesterday and let it air dry without any products, to see what would happen.
So far, I am really disappointed. There is less curl, but it is still quite fuzzy and frizzy. I guess I'll have to see what happens when I apply styling products, but I expected to be able to air-dry without products and end up with no frizz, just like people who have straight, silky hair naturally.
I'm not sure what to do- should I wash it again and apply my usual serum/gel combination when it's still wet? Right now I'm worried that I wasted my money. I have long, thick hair, and I paid $450 for this, BEFORE tip.
