How do you use your Curly Custard?

eccentric_kurlzeccentric_kurlz Registered Users Posts: 4,151 Curl Connoisseur
I just got my Afroveda Curly Custard today, which surprised me considering they stated it could take up to 5 days for the order to be processed(ordered it Sunday, shipped out Wed.)

I have to say, she very generously fills these containers. I bought the 16oz, jar, and it literally is filled to the brim.

So, how have you used it? What have you used under it, and what were your results? I can't do anything since I JUST twisted my hair up last night.
A wonderful mix of coils, curls, corkscrews, and kinks.

    I LOVE afroveda's stuff! I just did the BEST braidout EVER using the curlycustard on Wednesday night. I use the totally twisted almond butter under it as a leave it, applied the curly custard, and then air dried over night. It has a soft hold, and MUCHO moisture. I want to try it as a wash and go styler, which I think it would work really well if you are not looking for a lot of "hold".

    I'll post a pic so u can see it

    I posted a review of the pur whipped jelly here (http://www.happycurls.com/v2/smf/index.php/topic,8136.new.html#new)

    This weekend I planned on doing a review of the curly custard...I wanted to try it on a wash and go first though....but so far I like it. Shoot I've liked EVERYTHING she has that I've tried.

    Here is another review I did (http://www.nappturality.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=124918&st=40)

    hope this helps

    Thanks ladies

    Lately i've been getting lots of tangles with my wash and goes...so I had been doing twist outs, which I liked but my hair poofed up really big, and in the summer time...all that hair is HOT..lol. So the other day, I decided to try a braid out. I'm glad I did because it more closely resimbles my wash and go, but with out the tangles and walking around with a wet head. I'll def be doing this again.

    ncc, what do you do with it at night and before/during/after workout? tia.


    At night I pull it back into two low ponytails, and since I'm at the gym (well i try to be anyway) by 530am...it stays the same way. The only difference is that I might add a scarf/bandana for the gym, and thats it. After my work out...I spritz it with a mix of water/oil/KBB hair milk/peppermint and rosemary EO. If I need to, I'll add a bit of totally twisted almond butter to the ends of my hair and fluff and go.

    Very pretty, N_C_C! I'm itching to really use it now, but I gotta wait til next week. Wanna make sure I use it on a clean slate and make sure I can evaluate how well it'll work on my hair. I love the light cream 'scicle smell of it.

    I can see that this product will likely work better on wet hair. It looks to coat on dry hair and doesn't absorb right away, although it does after awhile. I've used alittle bit to moisturize my twists and they feel pretty soft. And the scent is very light, but yummy on my hair.

    Real test will be in a few days. lol

    yes i think it works much better on wet hair....soaking in wet hair. I've noticed that when my hair is soaking wet and I apply this, my hair just sort of sucks it all in.

    Questions:

    1. Is "Totally Twisted" what you're talking about when you say almond butter?

    2. It's under the "styling section like the Curly Custard is...you can still use it as a leave-in?

    3. Have you tried her conditioners as a leave-in?

    1. Yes the totally twisted almond butter is what i'm talking about...its in a blue and white container!

    2. yes...i've used it as a leave in...i've also used it over shea moisture for twists and under the curly custard for a braid out. I've also gotten good results using it as a moisturizer on dry hair to refresh twists (with a little KBB hair milk ). It's a very versitle product!

    3. I havn't tried her conditioners, but I remember a poster saying they were more like hair milks in consistency and performance. I stocked up during the B2G1 free KBB sale a while back, but with my next order I plan to try the sample pack and hopefully it will be a cheaper alternative to the KBB hair milk.

    So, I clarified and dt'd overnight before applying the CC. I just used it alone to gauge what else I'd need to use with it. It doesn't really do much for definition(for me), but my hair is soft and smells good. Well, it sorta defined the sections that actually curl, but my hair IS still kinda wet. My cottony parts just look like....well, cotton. LOL! No distinguishable curls or anything, as usual.

    This would probably be decent for twists, though. Or for those days you just wanna put it in a puff or something.

    Next time, I'll use a leave in underneath to see how it works.

    Hahahaha....the prices aren't bad, so you can indulge can't ya? :)

    Day three...or is it four? Anyway, Since I have to cowash everyday in order to do wash n go's now, I've been using this overtop of hair with alittle bit Giovanni 50/50 left in, and when my hair dries, it is SO soft and curlier than I thought initially. Since it's humid and I don't use anything to combat frizz anymore, it's just a free form curly fro I guess. But today....I have second day hair. :shock: And again, feels SO good.

    This may just be a repurchase. Just maybe. :)
