CurlTalk

Finally bought & tried some KCCC - LOVE it!

Oh my gosh, I just adore this stuff! It just melts into my wet hair and after I diffused, I had ultra shiny, zero frizz, well defined curls. I was worried it would act like the SM soufle, which my hair HATED, but it was nothing like it!

    It is wonderful in terms of curl definition but I don't like the crunch. I get same curls jet no crunchy but very soft hair with Hawaiian Silky curl activator. Plus it is only around $4-$5. I guess you don't mind the crunch or do you have a trick. Mind you, I only use about 1 tbsp on my 4a (reached base of neck if stretched) hair.

    I guess this is a sign (if I would believe in such a thing). I've been thinking about getting KCCC and it seems that a lot of people like it, with various properties. Should I get it or not?

    I'm a fan of it as well :) The price scared me a little bit, but I've been working out of the same jar for 4 months now... and still have probably about half remaining... so not a bad investment! For me, a little seems to go a long way.

    I get some major crunch from it, but I style my hair at night so I prefer this - the crunch is gone in the morning after I've spent the night tossing and turning. Otherwise if I were styling it during the day, diffusing has always helped me eliminate crunch without creating frizz or ruining my curls.
  • anonymous_133347anonymous_133347 Posts: 1,426Registered Users
    Amen, Pajally! I purchased my first little tub of KCCC at the end of November or beginning of December and it's 3/4s of the way gone. If I'm styling during the day I use less KCCC and get next to no crunch. Whatever crunch is there unfurls throughout the day or with a graze of my fingers. If I'm styling at night I use extra so I'll have more of a gelcast to protect and maintain my curls' shape as I sleep. KCCC, you do it all. And you leave my hair feeling soft, lustrous, and natural. :notworthy:

    Since it is a moisturizing jelly product Jas, I would think it would also benefit porous curlies too! :smile:

    Jas a lot of us reporting our love for KCCC are also highly porous, like you. It's in our siggies. :thumright:

    I haven't liked it so far on wet hair, but I used a little today for definition when my hair was dry and I think it has potential.

    I'm on the app, so I can't see siggies!

    And Dusa, for some reason I thought you were LOW porous! Maybe because you've been bonding with Myrna?

    Or maybe it's just because I'm sick right now and have things all messed up! Lol!


    I have had no luck putting things in my hair when dry. It jus seems to break up clumps further and cause frizz. :/

    Nah Myrna and I bond because we're a couple of coarse haired foxy brunettes who happen to like aloe. ;) Sorry you're sick, Jas. :( (Hug!) Some things (if they promote clumps) work very well in dry hair for me. SMCES, CJ PP, FSG, CK etc.

    It is definitely amazing! I kept holding it off of buying it bc of its price. But when I had the extra money, I bought it and was so happy! I love it so much that I don't want to use it so I don't waste it LOL!

    KCKT + KCCC currently in my hair! I'm plopping!


    First of all, KCCC smells AMAZING! Just like a custard!

    Secondly, I see what people mean by learning curve. This stuff turned to cement in my hair. Then I tried to do a final rinse on top of the kccc... i think this was a mistake it broke up all the clumps.

    Have some reading up to do!

    I'm never without my KCCC. I can mix it with other products. The only negative for me is that it takes a long time to dry. It gives me good shine. I'm highly porous and my biggest problem is my hair tends to be messy and poufy. KCCC really helps with definition.
    2/c Coarse hair med. density.
    Highly porous. Color over grey.
    I love all the Curl Junkie products. Still experimenting with gels and curl creams. Still hoping for 2nd day hair....
