Hate to say it but...

Wow, I'm kind of surprised to see someone with coarse hair who can handle all of that protein. I'm glad that it works for you though.

This makes me even more tempted to try CK now!

There are exceptions, but StruttsWife posted a thread about how, in general, fine hair needs more protein than coarse hair. I think that coarse hair naturally contains more protein, and that is part of what makes the strand so thick.

Hey, whatever works for ya, works for ya!

I'm just interested in seeing a coarse haired curly who can tolerate protein, especially wheat. I'm just jellis.
Kiva! Microfinance works.

Med/Coarse, porous curly.
Does anyone know how CK works under Deva's ArcAngell?
(Or any other gels for that matter?)

mostly 3a/fine/high porosity/low density

Shea butter to scrunch out the crunch and seal

Why, oh why, can't I use CK? For those of you it works for, it seems to be the holy grail product. You all are so lucky! I don't have good luck with this stuff. And it's rarely humid where I live, so I can't even test out that particular circumstance.

Very sad.

I use a leave-in then the CK. Usually just that, sometimes a gel over that if I want a strong hold. Love the stuff!

I'm certainly glad to hear of your results!!! I ordered the starter kit yesterday afternoon and am already anxiously awaiting its delivery. Hopefully I'll be back on this thread raving about having great hair too!
