KCCC is different from a gel. It's a slimier, thinner, jelly like consistency. Sort of strange looking but it goes on smooth and my hair loves it. I'll have to test out jsuzkelley's technique because so far I do something different, sort of like what you want to try hambo. After putting my leave in and sealer, I scrunch squeeze out excess moisture with an MF towel until I get my hair at least halfway towards damp/dry. Then I apply my KCCC by smoothing it on and scrunching it up and letting air dry. But jsuzkelley's way sounds like it might be great too! A little bit goes a long way with KCCC though. I don't use too much because it's a heavier product even though you wouldn't know it from the consistency. That's better though. Just a little gets the job done in terms of definition and coverage.

P.S. jsuzkelley, talk to me about Uncle Funky's Curly Magic! It's like KCCC? I didn't know there was anything like KCCC. I must try it now. Is it just as good or even better?
