Hi Curlies! So I've been using CIAB with success -- for my initial curls, but my hair gets frizzy in humidity as the day goes on. Sooooo..... I decided to try Knot Today as a leave in with KCCC on top. Worst results -- immediate result before leaving the house poor curl formation with lots of frizz. I was so hoping to love these products. I'm not willing to give up yet! Any advice on how you use these products with success would be greatly appreciated! 😃

    It might be an ingredient that doesn't agree with your hair. Glycerin does that to me.

    I get the same results you described when I use KT and CC together. So many people say the two work so well together, but not for me!
    2c, coarse, low elasticity, medium/high density; varied porosity, protein- and coconut-sensitive
    Winter: Acure Ultra-Hydrating Shampoo & Conditioner; then KCCC
    Summer: CJ Daily Fix and Smoothing Conditioner; then CJ Beauticurls (and on days when I want more polish or definition) CJ Pattern Pusha
    DT: Sally's GVPCB, mixed with sunflower and olive oils

    KT hates my hair; it's the BTMS. KCCC did nothing but pull my curl out and make my hair take forever to dry. Though I haven't tried it with shorter hair. Sometimes it's just not destiny to use a product, though KCCC in particular has a learning curve.

    3A/f/i
    Super baby fine hair, low porosity
    Shampoos: SM Fruit Fusion (mostly), Avalon lemon (to clarify). Occasional aloe vera and glycerin to wash.
    Stylers: Intelligent Nutrients Perfect Hold Hairspray
    Treatments: Catnip tea, IA girl's PT, Fermented Rice Water, Catnip Tea, Amla tea, Irish Moss, SS PT

    don't think of it as kccc hates your hair -- it's that your hair hates kccc. my hair hated the knot today immediately, and after a few times hated kccc, both were drying to my hair.

    3a, some 2c & 3b, medium texture, porosity normal, low elasticity :-(
