curlyfries1989's Latest Product Reviews

Kinky-Curly Curling Custard

Feb 24, 2015 - This stuff is WEIRD. I used it the first time over the KCKT and had horrible results. I used a tiny amount and it felt like someone had poured cement on my head. It felt disgusting and like every drop of moisture had been sucked out of my hair. I worked up the courage to try it again (thinking I must have done something wrong the first time) and ended up with the same dry sticky frizzy greasy mess as the first time. I stupidly bought 3 jars of this stuff before trying it during a black Friday sale, so I couldn't afford to just throw it away. Today I tried it again WITHOUT the KCKT leave in and BAM~! Tight, defined, springy curls. I always thought that the KCCC would only work on top of the KCKT so that's how I used it initially, but if you look on the KCKT bottle it actually only recommends it as a leave in for "thick coarse curls," My hair is more 3a/b and not coarse at all. Don't get me wrong--KCKT is a good leave in, it just doesn't work with the custard. Both great products if used SEPARATELY (at least for me). Anyway, I'm glad I gave the custard another shot. I would probably rebuy it if it were on sale.

Cantu Shea Butter Coconut Curling Cream

Jun 14, 2012 - I bought this product because it looked like an imitation of Shea Moisture's Curl Enhancing Smoothie and I wanted to see if it worked as well. And actually, it works better than SMCES. It is lighter and creamier and delivers more consistent results. I apply it as directed, by sectioning hair and applying to each section. This stuff smells wonderful but the smell fades once your hair is dry, so its not overpowering at all. I was hesitant to buy the coconut curling cream because it contains a few ingredients that are considered undesirable in the natural hair world (petrolatum, phenoxyethanol) but you can't argue with results! Bottom line: this stuff works.

SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo

May 17, 2012 - This is by far the best shampoo I have ever used. Before this product, my expectations of shampoo in general were pretty low. I expected them to clean my hair and that was is. I never knew a shampoo could moisturize and detangle like a conditioner! Well this product DOES. It even lathers really well, even though it's organic. My favorite product by Shea Moisture.
