Product Review: Kinky Curly Curling Custard





As promised in my last hair post, here is my review of the product that helped enhance my natural curls.  I tried the K-K Curling Custard when I first went natural in 2007, however, I really did not know what I was doing, so I cannot make any comparisons or updates. I decided to try this product to curl the ends of my braids, because the last time I wore braids
May 2011, click HERE to see the video of me talking about these braids.
This was  a month after I chopped off my colored ends, to start a new healthy journey
the ends were quite frizzy.

My hair curls easily with water and conditioner but after it dries, it tends to get frizzy. Kinky Curly Custard tames the frizzes and elongates my curls, preventing shrinkage. How awesome is that!  A little goes  a long way. After three days, I re-wet my hair (with water and aloe vera juice) and seal with oil. This product lasts in my hair for an entire week. It also washes out easily with just conditioner. It leaves no residue , build up and flakes. It also seems to seal in moisture. The first time I applied it , it left my hair crunchy, only because, I applied too much, however, I found out that re-wetting my hair corrects that. The company advises that their pomade  be used to correct the "crunch", but using any oil can do that for you, in my opinion.

Side Note:
 I also used Knot today (mixed with Aloe Vera Juice and Coconut oil), before applying the custard. I use Aloe Vera Juice in all my products because it helps keep my hair stretched and elongated. My curls show better when products used in my hair are acidic( 4.5)

I highly recommend this if you want to see your curls elongated and defined. Please know that I embrace my natural curls and I see nothing wrong with enhancing my curls with a product that helps it look better without the frizzes, and prevent knotting as my curls are elongated.

Also, the product is not only for "Wash n Go", it can be used to enhance the curls at the endss of your braids and twists.

  1. Great post!  I used Kinky Curly when I first went ntatural and hated it. Fast forward months later into my natural hair journey and I've fallen in love with the Knot Today! The curling custard however, is something I haven't revisited since but plan to soon. Thanks for the review, your hair has grown so much!!!

  2. Hi Kiki,
    Thanks for stopping by. Yes my hair has grown so much and I love that product. It is  going to  be a staple. I love both the knot today and the curling custard. They work great together. For those that fight shrinkage all the time, that curling custard might just be the solution to that problem.

  3. I have a jar of KCCC under my sink from 2009! It was the first product I bought the day of my big chop :0 Needless to say, it didn't work as I expected. maybe I'll revisit it in the summer :) The Knot Today is something I've used and liked but I've since found something better so we'll see..

    Thanks for sharing CB :)

  4. I beginning to realize that a lot of people did not like this product when they first  tried it. I think it has to do with length. But it really works well with braids and twists. I don't do wash and go so I really cannot give a honest review about using it for that style. 
    Thanks for visiting:)

  5. I have read so much about this product but I think it's expensive for a hair gel.

  6. You know, I STILL haven't tried this.  What makes this even funnier is that I have it in my house! Please don't ask me what I'm waiting for . . . I haven't a clue!
