Why Doesn't My Hair Like KCCC?

Again I will say, thank you Kathy Mack for the samples! I would have wasted a ton of money without you!

Anyhoo....I tried KCCC after careful research (on here, lol) and made sure to use a leave in under it (Gio DLI). My curls were limp, very producty, and greasy looking. Why can't my hair love it like everyone else on here?

My hair doesnt like it either. It does give major clumps.... but it also gives me poofy, and eventually fuzzy definitionless hair. And I never get 2nd day hair from it....

Also hate that greasy rubbery feeling and the that it DOUBLES my drying time.

I find that either it (the KCCC) or my hair is very temperamental! Sometimes I'll use it and my hair is limp curls, not much volume--and then I have a day like today, when I have the best curls ever! I never know how much is too much or too little--my hair definitely likes a little more of it, with a little bit of leave-in. Today I added some ArcAngell gel, and it really turned out well. But like I say, I just can't depend on it every time, and that's kind of a drag.

My hair doesn't love it either, I've put it to the back of the cupboard and am going to try it in winter when the weather's a bit damper. I'm not hopeful though.

My hair doesn't love it either.
I tried it many times, all different ways, in many different combos. It's Just Not That Into Me!
It starts out okay... but then by 2-3 o'clock my hair looks like I haven't washed it in a month. Not good.

I keep meaning to put up on the Swap Board.

Today I picked up my sample and gave it another go and - literally - the left half of my head has decent shiny defined curls and the right half is a poofy mess. I'm throwing in my microfiber towel over this one and going back to the drawing board!
Currently on the shelf:
Cowash- suave coconut
condish- Biolage Conditioning Balm
Still experimenting with styling products-
BRHG, Kenra Moisturizing Condish (as a leave in), Mirra Gel and Mousse just added
Hair is getting healthier every day! Avoiding glycerin & alcohol for now.
It's actually a relief to hear that others are having problems with it too. It really doesn't seem to do anything for my hair- no clumps, no crunch, no hold and it doesn't matter if I use a little or a lot, scrunch or rake. I think I've tried all the suggested combinations and techniques. The only good thing about it is the smell!
Hair type: 2c-M-ii with extra frizz
Well, today is the first day I used it. So far my hair is wet-looking (yick) and I crave soft, beautiful curls! I will probably try again tomorrow, maybe I used too much? I do have shorter hair now. I'm glad to know it doesn't work for you guys too. Thanks.

And THANKS to KM as well for my sample!!!!!!!!
Well ladies. I may have been wrong!!! After I scrunched the crunch, I realized I probably used a huge amount because my hair is shorter than my avatar now and my crown was looking a bit too producty. So today I will try again. It gave me AMAZING root curls, awesome curl definition...after I scrunched the crunch. I will try a little less today. But it might actually work for me!!

All right. So I tried it agin. I'll preface this by saying I should probably keep experimenting. But, my hair gets curlier than normal with KCCC however when I scrunch it gets frizzy. I am not using a product when I scrunch. That is probably the problem, but I do not have time in the morning to do this nor will I bring gel to work to scrunch.

I don't think KCCC is conducive to me if I have to scrunch out the crunch with gel.

So either I suffer with frizz but great curls, or keep trying different products. Now I have to decide whether I want awesome curls that require crunch but if I am also okay with frizz. So I don't really know! Maybe I should post pictures...?
I am actually afraid to try this again, that's how bad my hair looked when I used it.

Yes, I think tomorrow I am going to actually do some leave-in (as everyone recommended) and then do it. And then plop. Do you think that will work?

Okay guys. Not that you care anymore, BUT. I did KCCC again today - less this time and waited until it was pretty much dry before I scrunched (I found I wasn't waiting long enough and getting frizz.) Anyways, pretty good curls. But I am a teacher and one of my students said "Ms.___, what's up with the wet head?" So that pretty much proved my point that KCCC is not for me on school day. Weekends, but not school days. My hair takes too long to dry and I do look like a wet head, ha. I will keep experimenting.
