Kinky-Curly Curling Custard

May 27, 2013 - 4c 4c 4c 4c 4c 4c 4c 4c curlies now hear this - 4c curlies now hear this! Don't listen to them, 4c Chicas CAN use KCCC! PROS: Doesn't leave my hair parched. Adds shine. Holds style for 2-3 days. All natural. Cruelty free. CONS: Maximum shrinkage. Leaves hair gummy/tacky in humid weather. Forms little "balls" in hair after 3 days. That said, I have tightly coiled, porous, fine strands, with medium density and no definable curl pattern. And I love KCCC/KCKT for my TWA. I have a technique which works for me, and hopefully it will work for you too. Here's my regimen. It gives me at least 3-DAY hair before I have to redo it. 1. Purchase a back comber / teaser type comb (e.g. Tool Structure Tortoise Backcomber) 2. Watch SimplYounique's YouTube video for a tutorial using the back comber, titled "Miss Jessie's curly pudding application (Requested) Natural Hair SimplYounique" dated Apr 17, 2010. 3. Acknowledge that your hair will not form curly ringlets , but "clumped ringlets" with this technique. I apply KCKT leave-in to freshly washed damp hair, detangle the hair, section into workable parts and apply hair clips. I go back and apply KCCC to each section and re-clip the section to keep it from tangling. 4. I dip my backcomber in a basin of warm water for extra moisture during the styling process. 5. I use the rat-tail end of the backcomber to separate the hair into thin partings (no shingling - it doesn't work for me) and then gently comb product through to the ends till hair is smooth and detangled, and then let my smoothed detangled coils slowly drop through the teeth of the comb. You will see tight ringlets form. Don't touch. 6. Once my entire head is done, I whip my hair back and forth to loosen it up prior to diffusing. 7. Leaning forward, I diffuse the crown of my hair upside down to set it (more volume - no flat top), and then air dry my hair, or finish with diffuser or bonnet dryer. Make sure your hair is dry! Do not touch your hair until it's dry!! Do not lie down to sleep with damp hair!!! If you do it right, this may become part of your regimen! Be Blessed!
