I’m sure you guys are now familiar with my recent KCKT mishap. The honeymoon is over. My hair felt gummy to the touch yesterday, and after playing in it (something I do ALL day), my fingers were covered in some weird, sticky film. Not sexy. Plus, the extreme frizz worried the hell out of me. Frizz and shrinkage are what happens when the hair is thirsty and looks to the atmosphere to quench its thirst.
Since I had just done my hair the night before, I was hesitant to do it again so soon but I didn’t have much of a choice. I used Motown Girl’s Baking Soda Clarifying Rinse (review to come!) to cleanse my strands. There was no need to detangle again, so I shampoo’ed with baking soda, and rinsed and rinsed and rinsed some more. My hair still felt slick..like I had conditioner in it. I was torn- on one hand, I knew that the KCKT was still slightly present because my hair was SUPER slippery (and felt like butter!), but I was also afraid of the mess I might have on my hands the next day if not rinsed completely. Build-up? Maybe. I don’t know, but I didn’t want to whip out the shampoo. I gave up, got out of the shower and applied a generous amount of DevaCare One C and SheaMoisture Shea Butter Leave-in to each section prior to doing a TnC. The end result is below.
Despite the raging monsoon outside, my hair held up quite well today. It was a little frizzier than usual, but the good kind. I still need to poo (haha), but I think I’ll let the henna handle it later this week. DevaCare One never fails me.
Word to the wise- If it ain’t broke…
hmmm…I wonder which product will try to steal my heart next? 😉
I am glad your hair is feeling much better:) Bad hair days aren’t fun for anyone!
I love those big round curls. very pretty.
You’re hair so so lovely. I can’t wait for my transition to be over. 🙂
you hair looks so radiant, the colour, the sheen, health and beauty of it.
I’m so in love 🙂
Hey Nikki, I had the same reaction with KCKT and KCCC. I wanted to love ’em b/c everyone spoke so highly of the combo – but I hated the way it felt (I also have hand-in-hair syndrome). Not cute at all. Plus it took WAY too long to dry.
Okay I guess reading is fundamental. I read your post again and it says you use Devacare One C. I’m assuming that is the Devacare One Conditioner. Duh! I feel silly. One question, it looks like it is advertised as a rinse out conditioner. Does using it as a leave in cause any build-up for you? And what about the cone that is listed on the bottle has that caused any problems. I’ve been trying to stay away from cones that stay in my hair such as moisturizers or leave-ins.
What a difference. Wow! I guess different strokes for different folks. It never leaves a sticky feeling on my hair although the KCCC does. What devaone product are you leaving in your hair? You make me want to try it. Bring on the giveaway for the KCKT I love the stuff.
