Refreshing KCCC

Like Tree2Likes
  • 2 Post By ashlyndmarie

So, I'm about halfway through my first jar of KCCC. It works pretty well on the first day I use it (like after a wash). I'm not sure if it's an HG product or not but I guess Idk how to refresh it on the second day...

I normally get in the shower and then just condition my ends and then use leave-in and some KCKT on the ends and then apply the gel. The problem is then my hair just feels heavy and my curls don't pop.

Is the Spiral Spritz supposed to be the trick for that?

I don't wet my hair down on subsequent days. I just spritz with a homemade combination that's mostly distilled water and conditioner (approx. 3:1) in a plant mister bottle in the morning *if my hair needs refreshing.* However, I do scrunch in some AVG mixed with a few drops of jojoba oil at night if my curls are losing definition; then I sleep on a silk pillowcase.

The KCSS really never seemed to do anything good for my hair, so I gave up on it after several tries at different times of year.
Peace,

You can just mist water to refresh your curls it's cheap and does the same job as spiral spritz. You mentioned your hair is heavy and curls don't pop? Try using less products. I've had success with just kckt and kccc.
okyouwin and russianprncss like this.
I will definitely try that. KCKT doesn't tend to give me the best moisture throughout the day so I tend to use that on my ends with another leave-in. My other problem is that my hair is very thick but the strands are fine to medium, so I can't quite follow directions for fine hair nor for thick curls.

I might just go pick up some Spiral Spritz when I get my new conditioner at Target to see how that works. I've heard good things about it!

I think refreshing with just water depends entirely on what you used originally, how much and pattern type.

I've been playing around with using KCCC strictly as a refresher. It works really well for me either mixed with a little conditioner and water, or just with water (the water keeps it from being too sticky) and then just smoothed and scrunched a bit. I just use a dab of KCCC. Today I'm on 4th day hair and it feels just a bit like there's too much product on, but looks great (I'm washing tonight). My main complaint about using KCCC on wet hair is that it takes so long to dry, but with the small amount I use to refresh that's not really an issue.
