The curling custard defines my curls, keeps the hair soft and manageable, shiny and controls frizz.

OK ladies and Gents... I am going to break it down for all ya'll on the best way to use this stuff. It took me a while, but I think I have figured out the process. (Excuse the poor spelling... no spell check on this thing!)
The thing is to pay attention to YOUR hair texture!! If when you wash your hair and it does not have that gorgeous "curl" and has more of a "wave", you need to ring out your hair after washing/ rinsing (towel drying creates frizz). Apply the Knot Today conditioner(they really do work well together), then section your hair into 4 quarters. Take about a dime sized amount of the KCCC and create two strand twists all over in all four sections. It's up to you to decide how many two strand twists. If you want a more defined and curled texture, make smaller. Less defined, make twists bigger. You can air dry or sit under a hood dryer. My tip here is not to make the dryer too hot. Less heat, less frizz! After your hair is dry, use your favorite oil sheen or light hair oil and un-twist if needed. I put a little oil on my finger tips when I un-twist. That way all of the locks get the same amount of oil without over doing it. Re-apply as needed here.
Now, If your hair is fine and you do get that "curl" when your hair is wet. Rinse, ring out, apply conditioner and section as stated before. Apply a dime size ammount and work KCCC through with a wide tooth comb. (regardless of your texture always use a wide tooth comb on wet hair! it stops breakage.) For finer hair types I reccomend air drying, but if you have to use a hair dryer, use a hand held one on a cool/warm setting with a diffuser on the end. This helps prevent frizz a lot!!
FOR ALL HAIR TYPES: Sleep with a satin/silk bonett at night to prevent unwanted kinks, dryness and damage caused by cotton pillow cases.

Vendor is goughing the public. Price is double that of all retail sites, both online and brick and mortar stores. That said, when purchasing any hair product, our expectations must be realistic. And, you must know about your hair type. If you've have hair that shrinks when it dries, short of going back to chemical products or a weave, there isn't a product available that will prevent shrinkage. Andre Walker defines this hair type as 4
Type 4 is kinky, or very tightly curled, with a clearly visible curl pattern
Circumference: Crochet needle or even smaller
The hair is very wiry, very tightly coiled and very, very fragile
Type 4 hair can range from fine/thin to wiry/coarse with lots and lots of strands densely packed together
Type 4 hair has fewer cuticle layers than any other hair type, which means that it has less natural protection from the damage you inflict by combing, brushing, curling, blow-drying and straightening it
Type 4 hair is known to shrink up to 75% of the actual hair length

KC will work on type 4 hair, but it's a process and and drying time can be lengthy, but it can last at least a week or more. The key is to work KC throughy into the hair. This is best done in sections and using your fingers. During the application process hair needs to be wet. Keep a spray bottle handy. Wash hair(using Come Clean for heavy product build up), follow with Knot Today mosisturizer, finger combing through hair to smooth out tangels,I leave about 20 minutes, then rinse. Do not dry hair, add a small amount of Knot Today. Divide hair into four sections, apply KC to a section of the hair, finger comb and smooth hair until the hair is wavy and curls start to form. the amount of curl definition will be determined by the amount of KC used. Repeat for each section.

I have the typical non-racial mixed black girl hair; Nappy and kind of rough. My co-worker exclaimed how wonderful this product this is for natural hair, and I my hair would be so curly. I went to whole foods and purchased knot today and Curling Custard together, went and applied hair products as described on the bottles. And trust me when I tell you that I looked a hot mess!

My hair was matted, still wet, and crunchy! i was so embarrassed! I had to attend a family function with a hat on. Its not for my more nappy headed sistas. I try to salvage this expensive custard by using with my curler set but it made my hair crunchy and so flaky.

I do not recommend this product unless you have hair that curls when its wet and it looks good.

My usual style is an afro and I felt the need for just a different look but not straight!! After reading many, many blogs and posts I decided to try Kinky Curly Curling Custard. I believe my hair is 4B....pretty tight, but this product really defines the "curl" pattern...day after day after day. It lasts quite a while. On other posts, many said a little goes a long way...that's the truth. My "little" was a little too much, so I even lessened the amount I used the second time. Still a good result using less product. I would recommend this product to anyone looking for a change from a regular afro look to a more "curly" look.

Not everyone is gonna love Kinky Curly Curling Custard. Not everyone is gonna be clearly aware of how best to apply Kinky Curly CC. I will say that as a gal with very dry, very curly, 3b type, highly porous biracial hair, this is one of those choose to have in my hair arsenal. (We know that weather changes will affect what products we use, and we learn what our hairs like best). I get beautiful curls, root wave/curl and lift, and volume. It gives a more relaxed curl definition (ie increased length) than some other excellent curl enhancers/stylers, like Curl Junkie's CURLS IN A BOTTLE (which I also use and love).

If you have curly to kinky hair (anywhere from 2b through 4a), I think you can find a way to make this work for you. It's essentially a curl defining viscous styling product. The consistency is..."snotty", but the scent is lovely and fresh. Some describe it as a "snickerdoodles" smell. I call it "vanilla cake batter."

It's also expensive, so if you choose to invest in it (and Whole Foods carries it and Knot Today), do it right. I strongly recommend you go to YouTube and to NaturallyCurly and CurlTalk websites and Curlmart to watch videos, read reviews, and read threads on how to properly use. It will help IMMENSELY. Buy the 8oz first, not the 16, so if you hate it or can't get up to speed on the usage learning curve, you don't feel so bad. :)

Now, what I recommend for defined, soft, shiny, less frizz-prone curls: Buy the system. The Come Clean hair cleanser/shampoo, the Knot Today detangler/leave-in, and the Curling Custard. If you choose to forego the shampoo, do not forego the Knot Today. I find that Knot Today is the base where the custard thrives.

Some use a combing/raking method for applying the CC. Some use the scrunching. Both will work.
