I experimented with Kinky-Curly Curling Custard (KCCC) for 3-months prior to making this video. The tips I share consistently provide excellent results for me, and I hope they can be helpful to some of you as well!

KCCC is now my HG gel for Wash n gos! Products used: Shea Moisture Curl & Shine shampoo (name might be off–coral colored bottle); Tressemme Naturals (KCKT is an alternative); KCCC (obviously!); and Avocado oil.

What tips do you have for KCCC success?

    I am so late in checking these comments, but thanks to all of you for your comments and experiences! Hair is a strange and beautiful thing and responds so differently for everyone.

    Lol, @Big Sister…I have not been in the forums for a while because I check CN on my phone via Google Reader.

    The Kinky Curly product line is awesome! It does exactly what it says. The Come Clean shampoo lathers up well and smells great. My hair was clean and not stripped. The Knot Today conditioner is a great leave in conditioner! My hair is very thick. It detangled my hair with no problems. The Curling Custard is worth every penny! It goes a long way too. My hair is curly, soft, and has a nice sheen. I usually have to two-strand twist my hair for the wave pattern to keep, but with the custard I just section of my hair a pull the custard down to my ends. It waves and curls up instantly! If the weather is too cool to air dry, I use a soft bonnet dryer to dry my hair. The hair spritz has a nice hold; my hair is still soft afterward. I would recommend this product line to anyone who has natural kinky curly hair!

    Yay! I changed my don'ts to dos and had success!!!

    Thank you thank you thank you.
    I read your tips last night and used them this morning.
    I think the one that made it work for me was the sectioning of your hair.
    I have tried to get it right several times before this, but never sectioned my hair.
    This time I've had total success.

    What is it about the word 'moist' that turns ladies off? I have heard that a few times from different women…strange

    Time…I bought KCCC when I first started transitioning and had awful results. Now I am two years in and tried during the snow storm here in ATL….perfect results. I did some finger coils. They lasted for almost 2 weeks.

    I don't care for it, maybe it's the feel (stickiness) and smell. And regardless of the amount it still looks weird. I might revisit one more time based on this though. I guess i like to torture myself. BTW there is a YT video with the maker, Shelly(?) demonstrating the application.

    In the past, I used it on DRY 2nd or 3rd day hair and it gave me a natural, curly look since it tend to look jheri curlish on me. I will try some of her advice on wet hair to see if it will give me a more natural (not greasy) look. Great advice all around!

    Well I've tried the KCCC before and really didn't like it for my hair, and that's after trying it for like 4 times. I guess you have to get the science of it down to a tee, either that or its mainly for 4a and 3 hair types. But the KCCC detangler conditioner is really nice, but I wouldn't leave it in my hair, I didn't care to much for the crunchy feeling.

    On a side note "Haircrush" aka Manechic has just posted a Twistout Tutorial and her hair is amazing. I want to be her length eventually, but don't if I could handle all of it. Here is the link on youtube where I saw this.

    I am a big fan of KCCC. The thing is that it wasn't until I followed the directions on the Kinky Curly website that I got the desired results. I'm out of the custard for now, but when the weather warms up I will repurchase 🙂

    Thank you for sharing your product tips. This is what gets me: why do we have to end up with all these different products from different lines? why aren't the lines consistent with their products across the board? I really don't want to keep buying different products in search of the "holy grail". One reason I think the beauty salon culture, especially for relaxed hair, lasted so long is because you didn't have to think about "products" all the time. I mean for years I used Creme of Nature Shampoo. And now? it's depressing to have all these choices and spend all this money. So now, my new motto: if it works I'm goin to use it until I use it up. Being a product junkie is no longer for me.

    Okay, I've been doing some of the don'ts, thanks for doing this video, I've been struggling with KCCC because I love it, but have been doing some counterproductive things….thank you!

    I've been natural for 6 years, bought and used nearly every product there is, dyed it and even texturized it (never again). The main DON'T I learned: don't look at someone's hair and say "that's how I want my hair to look like" (I don't care if you think you are the same 3,4,5 type hair)…and then think whatever they are using will work on yours. The main DO I learned: embrace your very own unique hair texture(s), curl pattern(s), not-so curl pattern(s), etc. (I discovered at least 3 textures on my head alone).

    KCC IS a good product, one of the best on the market for natural hair that I've seen. But with everything, there just is no guarantee you will get the results you want. This is especially if you are trying to change or alter what God blessed you with (and if that's the case then maybe natural is not the way to go).

    as an avid wash and goer and KCCC user, i approve this message, only contending the part about using no glycerin or cones. my fave combo is KCCC with HETT. but, to each her own i guess.

    I have 4b hair and I always rack the product through with a comb. It says on the bottle to do that. So I dont agree. If I just use my fingers I wont see my curl pattern well. My hair is really really thick.It amazes most black ppl, they wanna know why lol. I need to seal in the mouister properly. When I do I see all these beautiful coils. And everyone has a curl pattern. Unless there hair is a bit heat damaged or still transitioning. This product is for everyone. I never bought it to get curls. I needed a sealer. This stuff just happened to work great. Hair Type four ladies dont expect to use this and get type 3 hair. Thats silly. No one does that. Different techniques work for different ppl. I don't believe in does and donts. our hair is just too unique for that.

    Don't buy it – you'll find that by not buying it you will be very
    successful : )

    Things I agree with her are: Don't use KCCC if you don't have a curl or wave pattern to begin with. If your transitioning and some of your hair IS curly and the rest is not, the straight hair will still be straight. The clap method (which I call it) or prayer method works for me as well to achieve the best definition. I used KCCC and Knot today a few days ago with the Flawless curls shampoo and conditioner by Tressemme. The shampoo HAS some sulfate and the conditioner HAS some cones. I didn't experience a problem with the application of KCCC. To refresh the curls and get second and third day wash and go…mist your hair while you take a shower. Use a shea butter( I used Karens Body) to moisturize your hair.
