There’s not doubt that natural products are in these days, and I am one of the many people experimenting with the different options out there for eliminating chemicals and harmful substances from my daily routine.
I accidentally stumbled across Kinky Curly Curling Custard on Amazon while searching for a natural shampoo and conditioner combo. Of course, the first thing I did was check the reviews. However, Amazon reviews cannot always be trusted these days since people often place false reviews on products to boost sales. I also checked some Youtube reviews. Many people claimed that it gave them waves and/or curls they never had before. I decided to definitely give it a try.
Here are the ingredients: Botanical Infusion Of Water, Horsetail, Chamomile, Nettle And Marshmallow, Organic Aloe Vera Juice, Agave Nectar Extract, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Pectin, Citric Acid, Potassium Sorbate And Natural Fragrances.
This gel should be applied to soaking wet hair, as with many products intended for curly hair.
First of all, this product is like a slime. I have a difficult time getting the right amount of the product because it slides off my fingertips when I try to dip it out. I kept scooping too much in order to keep it from sliding off, but then I found it is easier for me to scoop it with a spoon and then place it in my hand. Kind of weird, but it works.
Second, the act of working it into my hair was quite a chore. No matter how much I tried I couldn’t get it to distribute evenly, which was evident after it dried. So I tried mixing it with some leave in conditioner before I applied it. This helped to certain extent, but still not as well as I wanted.
Third, I learned quickly that I was not using enough of this product, so I increased the amount each day for about three days. I never got the even smooth curls that others seem to get. Instead, I got some wet looking curls with flyaway frizzes here and there. (I know this sounds like I still didn’t distribute the product, but I worked on it FOREVER!)
Now, I have used many products that left crunchy curls when dry. I am well aware of how scrunch the hair to get nice soft curls afterward. However, I could never get the crunchy look out of my hair with Kinky Curly Curling Custard.
After about a week of having terrible hair, I finally decided it just was not the product for me. It just looked too messy and unfixed. I have no doubt that some other people have wonderful results from this product, but my search for perfect curls continues. So sad…….
Hope this review helps you!
