Kinky-Curly Curling Custard Review: Wow, it's a miracle!

Hello ladies, I’m back! This time we’re back to discussing our hair, and we’re talking about a product that I swear has a cult following; Kinky-Curly Curling Custard! This product is completely fabulous, and I use it everyday. It’s natural, it’s moisturizing, and it delivers results. Don’t take just my word for it, it’s won the Best of the Best Award on Naturally Curly.

So let’s talk about what’s in it, and what isn’t before we get on to the review. Kinky-Curly Curling Custard is protein-free, paraben-free, silicone-free, and glycerin-free. It’s also organic, so it’s a product that you can feel good about putting on your hair, or your children’s hair. I’d use it on my gorgeous curly son if he would ever let me fix his hair, alas he won’t so I’ve stopped trying. The Curling Custard is loaded with humectants, so if your hair is sensitive to humectants like aloe or agave nectar, this isn’t going to be a product for you. However, my hair loves humectants year-round, and KCCC. Yeah!

To catch you up on my hair type: I have a mix of 2b, 3a and 3b curls. If you aren’t familiar with hair typing on Naturally Curly, that basically means I have some sections of hair that are wavy and some sections that are loose curls, and a few tight curls. My hair texture is medium, so it’s pretty soft. It’s relatively porous, from years of heat styling and coloring, however since I henna’d, my porosity has changed a little.

I originally tried Kinky-Curly Curling Custard back in September of last year, and I loved it the first time I used it. However, as I’ve mentioned before, a lot of products are sent to me to review for you ladies and my Examiner page, so I tend to forget a few of my loves from time to time. So, about 2 months ago I decided to pull the Curling Custard back out and give it a go. Just like I remembered, my hair + KCCC= L♥ve! Like I’ve mentioned about a million times already, curly hair needs moisture to thrive. If your curls are dry or simply aren’t getting adequate moisture they’ll never look as great as they could. I deep condition my hair once a week at the very least. Since I’ve gone modified CG, my hair is in the best shape of my life, and I probably don’t need to deep condition as often as I do, but I want to make sure that I keep the health of my hair where it is right now.

Kinky-Curly Curling Custard probably has the strangest consistency of any product that I’ve ever encountered. It’s sort of like snot, and I know that sounds gross, but it isn’t at all. It smells edible almost, which I love. I have a huge issue with funky product smells. If a product smells bad, I won’t put it in my hair. I’ve heard the smell described as vanilla cake, but I don’t know what they scent it with. Anyway, back to the texture. It’s weird to say the least, it isn’t like a typical hair gel at all. It comes in a tub, and if you dip your finger in it, it will hardly pick any product up. This is actually a great thing, as the product is super concentrated, so a tiny amount goes a long way, regardless of your hair type.

The Curling Custard gives me super shiny, bouncy, defined curls. I know a lot of curlies use a hard-hold gel on top of it, but my curl pattern is strong enough on it’s own so I don’t need anything else. I've heard some of the ladies on Naturally Curly say it can take a long time to dry, this is compounded if you use products with it that contain ingredients that interact with the Custard. My hair is porous, so it dries pretty fast, and the Curling Custard doesn’t really affect my drying time. However, the Curling Custard doesn't always play well with others.

I can’t say enough about this product, and I’m sure if I sat here long enough I could think of a ton more to say about it. However, I think this post is long enough already. Try Kinky Curly Curling Custard, it stands up to the hype!
