Kinky-Curly Curling Custard
Nov 14, 2009 - Here's how I have gotten this product to work absolutely perfectly for me. Perfect curls. Every time. I am (cough) 40+ Caucasian with 3a/b curls. Very fine, but lots of hair. It dries quickly, so I have to work quickly. I use a microfiber towel to blot the water from my hair. I then use Knot Today (a little goes a LONG way here, especially when using the KCCC afterward) and run my fingers through to get the tangles out. If there are tangles left, I then run a wide tooth comb through very gently. Next, I dip just the ends of my fingers (just past the first knuckle) and then spread that amount of KCCC all over both hands to smooth it out. I then start at the front of my head and work it in from the roots to the ends. That amount gets me about halfway through, then I load up again (it's only about a dime-sized amount. Not very much) and do the back side of my hair. Then, I work in sections and scrunch each section. If I need to, I can use a diffuser to dry my hair, but my hair dries pretty fast on it's own. I usually end up scrunching it one more time when it's a little more dry to give it just a bit more body. At that point, I leave it alone for the day and I'm good to go. Once it's dry, I can use a pick and fluff it out if I want and get really soft, fluffy curls. It took a lot of trial and error to figure out the way to get it to work for me, but that seems to be the best way for me and now there's no going back to other styling products. I get consistently awesome curls, every day, without having sticky, stiff, or dirty feeling hair.
