KCCC quick question...

Hey ladies, Has anyone noticed a slight difference between two containers in the color of [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Kinky-Curly-Curling-Custard-p-778.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=kinkycurly-curling-custard]KCCC[/buylink]?

    Did you check the expiration dates on both jars and compare the ingredient listing?

    Unfortunately [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Kinky-Curly-Curling-Custard-p-778.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=kinkycurly-curling-custard]KCCC[/buylink] doesn't have an expiration date on the jar, as far as I know. I don't think that the ingredients in it have changed since it came out several years ago.

    It makes sense - [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Kinky-Curly-Curling-Custard-p-778.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=kinkycurly-curling-custard]KCCC[/buylink] is pretty much all natural, and most 'all-natural' products have some variation in colour and consistency depending on the exact ingredients used (eg, each agave plant they get the agave nectar from may have a slightly different colour - which is perfectly normal - and in turn that changes the colour of the end product).

    Mine has always been an opaque sort of clear, but agave based products can have a tendency to have a bit of a tannish or light brown look. Raw agavge nectar is quite dark, so if one batch of agave is treated differently, it could affect a batch of product.

    This has happened to me in the past. I had one jar that I purchased from a BSS in Oakland, and it was the normal, opaque, off white. I purchased another jar while I was in LA from Wilshire Beauty and it was more white than off white. It still performed the same and I haven't noticed any difference in colors in any other jars that I have purchased.
    I like my gels light, my oils heavy, my conditioners thick, and my curls long...
