The other day I blogged about trying kinky curly custard for the first time, liking the results but knowing that I could have done better with the product. A helpful reader, Farah, linked us to a video of her using the kccc and it greatly helped me for the second application! The key was to brush the curls with the gel in, with a denman brush (or paddle wig brush which is what I used, but I plan to get a denman) to make the curls spring to form and distribute the product throughout. What a difference it made!
So let’s have this picture step by step shall we? First up, I did a pre-poo (pre-shampoo treatment to moisturize and condition the hair to prepare for the drying nature of shampooing) with olive oil, coconut oil, and Aubrey Organics Honeysuckle Rose. I then washed my hair with Trader Joe’s Tingle Tree shampoo and conditioned with the V05 passionfruit smoothie conditioner.
Hair straight out of the shower:
Then I scrunched in Kinky Curly Knot Today in sections with the hair soaking wet.
Taking the paddle brush, I brushed that through a bit to make sure that it got to all of my curls. Now it was time for the Curling Custard! I also applied it in sections, smoothing some on in an area and then brushing it through while making sure that the hair was still super wet. There was a cup of water on the sink that I used to pour more water into my hair if I felt that it wasn’t soaking wet. By brushing, I noticed that the curls popped to become much more defined and the results were a super curly pretty head of hair:
So I am very happy with the product now that I’ve figured out how to best use it. That brush can make all of the difference if you have a distinct curl pattern and want to make the curls stand out. My cousin liked it so much that she is on her way over so that I can do her hair too! Lol, there’s a referral 😉
After the hair dried:
And what’s even better is that I got super cute SECOND day hair! My hair NEVER looks the same the 2nd day with a wash-n-go, only if I do twistouts, so I was very very pleased to wake up and take off the bonnet to find my hair looked pretty much the same 😀 Just fluffed with Shea Moisture Curls Smoothie and kept it moving right on out the door! Total win, so easy.
Thumbs up for the Kinky Curly Curling Custard, I think I’ve found a holy grail item! Hope this helps those with questions on its use 🙂
