Toya's Hair Diary: Finally A Perfect Combination

I know a lot of people think that having natural hair is easy but naturalistas as you very well know, the natural hair struggle is real!  It takes a while to find the right combination of products but when you do...



I've recently combined Kinky Curly Custard with Shea Moisture's Curl Souffle' and my curls have never had more definition:



In my review of Shea Moisture's Curling Souffle', I mentioned that it was a good product to combine with your favorite gel to add shine and cut down on the dryness that can come with defining your curls with gel.  I was using it with Paul Mitchell's Sculpting Gel and since that worked so well, I wondered how it would work with Kinky Curly Custard.  I tried KCC a while back and while my curls were FIYA the first day...


It looked like this on the second day...



*Tamar Braxton voice* ShrinkageandDryness.com!  No disrespect but my hair is NOT supposed to look like that. It was dry and since it doesn't really react well with other products, my usual standby Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie couldn't do anything to help.  Now if you don't like your hair to be crunchy, I wouldn't recommend this combination on its own. You may need to add some coconut oil or olive oil to the mixture to soften it up. I don't mind crunchiness at all as that is when my curls are the most defined. However I don't want my hair to be dry and so far I haven't experienced dryness.  Another thing I am also happy about is that I no longer have to worry about squeezing white residue out of my hair with a t-shirt since I am using translucent products.

If you are looking to try this combo, I suggest applying the custard on sopping wet hair after detangling.  Then rake the souffle' in for moisture and shine.If you define your hair with gel, I definitely recommend this combination of products along with Kinky Curly's Knot Today for nice crisp curls without the residue.
