This is my hair (picture taken 7/24/10)...
I don't have any product in my hair besides Giovanni Direct Leave-In Conditioner. I did a really chunky two-strand twist and took them out to rock this look...that's it.
and this is my hair on Kinky Curly Curling Custard(KCCC)taken 7/23/10!
Let me first say that this is my third time using this product and I just don't think that KCCC and I can be friends. To be fair the first time I used it was when I first big chopped and honestly my hair was simply to short to reap the benefits of KCCC.
The second time i used it was maybe 6 months ago after watching several youtube videos on the correct way to apply the product. My gripe after the second use was how it made my hair feel..it had a tacky feeling to it. I couldn't get past the feeling of my hair to notice the shrinkage that was taking place.
I decided to give KCCC one more try...my hair is longer, and I've watched even more youtube videos on applying the product. While watching those videos I also saw naturals with hair much longer than mine have their hair draw up so bad. I was literally able to watch my hair shrink right in front of my eyes. Were my curls popping...YES!! The product does provide curl definition but hell you could barely see my curl because my fro had done a disappearing act on a sista and shrunk up..lol
No harm no foul..just another example of what works for one persons hair does not work for anther's. The members of Kinky and Curly in the Twin Cities Meetup group will reap the benefits of my misfortune since I will be bringing the product to our next meetup for those who want to try it.
