Anyone diffuse with KCCC? Problems!

Hi all, I'm new to CG (about 3 weeks), and JUST when I thought I had this thing down, I have terrible hair today.

I've bought a ton of new products and have had success with diffusing using a lot of different things, but today I did:

Leave-in
CK
KCCC
and diffused as usual, but got terrible, crazy frizz, like all over, no curls, just frizz- everywhere!

I've used KCCC successfully before, and always use CK with anything I use, but hate the crunch of KCCC, so I thought I would try to diffuse instead of air dry.

I am thinking this product doesn't like any activity in the hair once applied, until it's totally dry.

However, it could also be that I did a PT a couple nights ago, and I'm just seeing the poor results of that now. I don't think my hair needed it, as it certainly didn't feel any softer after I did it. I followed with a DT.

Thoughts?

Waiting patiently for my Curly Kinks order to arrive this week! I'm hoping to find more products that don't require me to SOTC. I don't like the "wet" look.

    I diffuse my hair at least for a few minutes every time I wash it, and rarely do I NOT use KCCC.

    Plenty of others diffuse with it, too, though I don't know how many also use CK with it.

    CK, however, I hate, LOL! Everybody's different.
    2C/3A/3B - modified CG - fairly fine now, normal/low porosity/normal elasticity

    Current Main Rotation: MG217 medicated or Aim2Health 'poos for scalp, Elucence cond., Spiral Solutions Protein & Deeply Decadent Cond., CJCCCC reg or lite,CJ Pattern Pusha,, Giovanni LA Hold Hair Spritz + lots more, sporadically

    HG Method: Super Soaker + Smasters-ing, brief upside down diffusing w/360o diffuser then clips/clamps & air dry. Newly gray - stopped my henna glosses!

    I also diffuse after using KCCC and have not had problems, but I think the frizz might be from using CK and KCCC, classic product frizz.

    I have diffused with KCCC but I found that it took FOREVER since KCCC takes soooo long to dry so I don't anymore. I also have Curl keeper and I like it with other FSG but I have yet to try it with KCCC. There might be somethng in the ingredients of the two together that just don't work well with your hair. Maybe try each separately with other products.

    Hmmmm, I've been using the same exact routine, leave-in, CK and then KCCC and I always diffuse with no problems.

    Not sure why you got frizz? Maybe too hot or you moved your hair around too much?

    BTW, I don't get much crunch with KCCC, but what little I do, I just scrunch out when my hair is all the way dry.

    My other favorite with CK is AG Re:coil.
    3B, with some 3C

    CK is Curl Keeper, but I ordered all the Curly Kinks stuff too from CM, but am waiting their arrival!

    Upon more research, I think the PT I did messed with my hair. Hmmm.....maybe I just need to put more moisture in there. I haven't layered the CK with the KCCC before, this was a first, so I will also try them again separately.

    Thanks for the suggestions all! :)
