Hi there curlies!
In today’s post I’m writing about how I add the Kinky Curly Curling Custard (KCCC) to my curls. Applying the KCCC styler can be a bit difficult to apply, because you can easily use too much of it.
You’ll know you’ve used too much of it if your curls don’t seem to dry even if you’ve blow-dried them or let them air-dry as usual. With most stylers this isn’t too big a problem, but with the KCCC this can be really annoying leaving you with greasy-looking curls.
I always add my styler in two steps: First I cover the back of my curls with it, then I flip my head over and cover the front and scrunch in the styler.
The following picture shows the amount of KCCC I’m using to cover the back of my curls (I’ll later add a bit more). Please be aware that I have quite a lot of hair and rather long hair. So if you’re hair’s shorter or you know you have less hair, also use less product!
I then add the above amount to the back of my curls by just gliding along the back of my curls. At this point I don’t rake through my curls anymore, because it breaks up my clumps. If you want your curls to form smaller clumps I suggest you rake in your product at this point (to do so use your styler-covered fingers as a comb).
I then flip over and start covering the front of my curls by scrunching in some additional KCCC. This is the amount I’m using:
So you see this really isn’t a lot of additional product, but you won’t need more since you’ve already covered all your curls with enough product.
And that’s it! I continue my usual routine by plopping and then blow-drying my curls. As you can see in the first picture I also added some clips for additional volume. I then end the washing and styling routine by scrunching out the crunch (the first picture was taken before SOTC).
