Kinky-Curly Custard Review

kinkycurlyI know you may have heard of the remarkable Kinky-Curly Custard which is an all natural product that is similar to that of a gel. It defines the natural curls in natural hair and gives a high gloss sheen as well. I purchased this product to use while I grow my hair back out naturally. I decided that while my hair is short that I would like to wear a curly fro and sometimes braid extensions until my hair is long enough to begin wearing 2 strand twists and twist out styles. I heard about Kinky-Curly being a wonderful natural alternative than using a chemical texturizer to define the curl pattern in natural hair.

This product works wonders for my natural curls. I wash my hair with the Kinky-Curly brand shampoo(Come Clean), next I apply the leave in conditioner/detangler made by Kinky-Curly called Knot Today. I then finish my style off by adding the Kinky-Curly Custard to define my natural curls and I allow my hair to dry naturally for a totally defined curly afro. Curly Custard needs to be worked through the hair in sections. First take about a half dollar amount depending on the length of your hair and apply to a section of the hair working it through with your fingers to define your natural curls. Continue this until the Curly Custard is worked throughout all of your hair.

I love the way Curly Custard makes my hair smell. My hair is soft and moisturized while the Curly Custard is in my hair. After wearing Curly Custard for a few days it may need to be reactivated with water. The best way to do this is to spray the hair lightly with water and work the water throughout your hair to reactivate your style.

The only draw back with Curly Custard is my hair tends to become dirty and sticky after wearing it for a while so my hair must be washed at least every 3 days when wearing Curly Custard. The only other concern is applying other products to the hair while Curly Custard is in your hair will make the hair extremely dirty and will destroy the defined curly look. The only product that I’ve found to work well while Curly Custard is in the hair is Carols Daughter Hair Milk. Not that you will need any extra moisturizers, but if you feel you hair is dry Carols Daughter Hair Milk is the best moisturizer to use while Curly Custard is in the hair.

This is a great product for those of you that are wearing your hair natural if you want to define your natural curls. Kinky-Curly Custard will not work well in chemically relaxed hair because the natural curl has been completely altered.

    Hi.
    I have always loved your posts, and i’m very grateful for your advice. i’m a Nigerian student in the UK. Thank you very much for everything. Sorry to crave your indulgence, but with the threat of the damage of Sodium Laureth Sulphate, what shampoos do you recommmend for relaxes african hair? Also, if mineral oil and petroleum products are so bad, what hair moisturisers and leave-ins do you recommend for relaxed African hair? Are Dr. Miracle’s products as goood as we are made to believe? Thank you very much. God Bless you.

    There are a lot of natural shampoo’s that do not contain sulfates that you can find online. The shampoo I currently use is the Kinky-Curly Come Clean shampoo. You can go to your local Whole Foods store or go to kinky-curly.com to purchase it. I also used Organic Root Stimulator’s Carrot Oil when my hair was relaxed followed by pure olive oil for added sheen. I do not recommend Dr. Miracles hair products because they contain mineral oil. The only product by them, that seems like a good buy for OUR hair type is the leave in conditioner.

    Try Alaffia.com and Curls.biz for products that don’t contain sodium laureth sulfate or mineral oil. I use alaffia’s daily shampoo and conditioner once a week and from curls.biz, I use the curl gel-les’ and quenched curls moisturizer. My hair is natural. Alaffia has a nice moisturizer that good on relaxed hair also.

    Samara,

    What hair type are you? It looks like you and I have similar textures (4b range?), but maybe not. I just tried KCCC for the first time a couple of days ago, before I found your blog. I applied it in the same way you described, but once my hair was dry it was just an afro. I didn’t get any of the curl definition you described above. I had to re-wet my hair and shape it into finger-coils in order to get definition. I’m okay doing that, but it means that every time I wash and style my hair it is a 2-hour (minimum) time investment. I was hoping for a “wash and go” alternative. I wonder if I’m doing something wrong, or if maybe once your hair is longer you will run into the same issue.

    Help :-(

    If your hair is 4b you are not going to have “wash in go hair”. From reading your comment, I see that you haven’t truly accepted the beauty of your natural hair texture because you are trying to recreate a entirely different texture(biracial). Kinky-Curly will only define your own natural curls, so if your curls are 4b curls (tight coils) You’ll have defined coils instead of frizzy ones. Your hair must be soaking wet when you first apply the product.

    Knot Today is Recommended for 4b hair to help define the hair. Apply an ample amount of Knot Today working it from root to tip, almost saturating the hair. Next take a wide tooth comb and comb your hair. Apply the KCCC section by section working it through the hair from root to tip. For really defined coils use more product, and for less definition use less. It may take a few try’s to learn the right amount of product to use.

    If you want a curly look may I suggest that you try a twist out instead. I also suggest that you read this article: Too much emphasis on curl definition. Best of Luck!

    I have heard so many wonderful things about the Kinky Curly Products. I have been growing my hair out and have not had a relaxer in about 6 months. My ends are still straight but I would still like to try the products. How will it work with the ends still straight? Also what is 4b hair?

    • http://www.growblackhair.net Samara

      You ends will remain straight because Kinky-Curly works with the natural curl in your hair so if there is no curl pattern it will not magically curl your hair.

      4b hair type is hair that doesn’t have a definite curl pattern. The pattern is instead a zig-zag “z” pattern.

  • ITALIAN&BLKCURLS

    I KEEP HEARING ABOUT THIS PRODUCT AS WELL…I LOVE SULFATE FREE SHAMPOOS I USE ONE CALLED DEVA CURLS
    …BUT MY QUESTION IS HOW DO YOU FIGURE OUT YOUR HAIR TYPE? (EX: 3A 3C 4B ETC…)
    IS THERE LIKE A WEBSITE TO SEE ALL THE LISTED TYPES AND FIGURE YOUR HAIR CATEGORY OR SOMETHING?

  • http://www.growblackhair.net Samara

    I don’t really care for the hair typing chart because it’s confusing and makes women feel inferior to looser curl types, so I purposely do not include charts of those kinds on my site, however here a 2 good charts I found online:

    I’ve been a hairdresser for 17 years and I have naturally curly hair – the Shielo Antioxidant Leave-In Protector works for me – its amazing.

    Wash, towel dry, spray it in and go. No frizz, curls are soft & bouncy, amazing! However, I use about a bottle a week! I need it in bigger bottles!!
