Default KCKT not moisturizing enough!!

Fine, Low Porosity, Medium Density

So I have been using KCKT for awhile now, but it is just not moisturizing enough. My gel, LALSG, seems to be doing an okay job (I want to try a different one), but I am getting bad frizz. I use a little more than a quarter-sized amount of KCKT, but I don't think the amount of the product is an issue. I would love Leave-in recommendations (and gel)!!!!

My routine is co-wash, RO with GVPCB, KCKT, Gel, Scrunch with t-shirt, Plop, then Diffuse if I need to leave the house right away. I don't touch my hair a lot. Don't know if some thing in my routine is triggering the frizz.

Any recommendations would be wonderful.

You can try Satin Roots Leave in Conditioner from the company Curly Kinks.

Its 100% more moisturizing than KCKT to me

I answered you original post in another thread--but I second the Satin Roots LI. It's really a great product. I finally used it with something beside the CK Coil Jam. My hair looks so good with the two, I was "afraid" to waste a day. (I wet, use a rinse out and style every day. Rotate products and won't use anything more then once every five days.) I used the Satin Roots with KCCC (which I seldom use) and had a great hair day--lots of compliments.

I recommend either boosting the KCKT into a Kimmaytube like version, or going for Curl Junkie Smoothing Lotion, BASK Silk Honey Latte, Qhemet Biologics conditioners or Koils By Nature Shealoe Leave In.

Lol! It looks l have expensive tastes, but many of your drugstore brands aren't available here (UK) and if I pay to have something shipped, I don't want to pay more for shipping than the products, that's all! So I would say try the drugstore/BSS brands mentioned here first.
