KCCC gives me crispy curls until I scrunch out the crunch. PP doesn't really go crispy for me at all. If I were to hazard a guess (for my hair), I would categorize it as slightly less hold than KCCC. When I use it, I get huuuuuggggeee waves and/or curls instead of the smaller s pattern waves I have normally.

This area is under construction as my hair type changed and nothing works well for me. I shampoo, I condition and pretty much have done nothing but chuck my hair in a messy bun for the past oh...year? Yeah, I'm that lazy.

No...going no-poo or CG does not work for me. It leaves me overconditioned and oily in a second no matter what I use, so that's not what's not working.
