Replacement for My Beloved Kinky Curly Curling Custard

Hello all!

For those of you that follow, you know that I have had a love hate relationship with KCCC lately.
Somtimes KCCC can produce perfect silky spiral curls for me....other times it produces a stringy sticky mess. I recently tried Kinky Curly Curling Custard on my twist out and was quite pleased with the results.

Even before I purchased KCCC, I always got good results with Eco Styler gel with Infusium 21 leave in under it. Well the problem with this was I always ran out of Infusium SUPER fast and it was a chore to keep some in my closet. So I strayed away from this...

Well after reading naturally curly I read about Long Aid Curl Activator and how awesome it was....so I gave it a try. TOTAL bust. My hair felt SUPER greasy...and my curls did not clump at all..

Well recently I was reading on naturally curly that someone puts long aid curl activator on their hair BEFORE EcoStyler Clear. Well I have always used the brown Eco Styler....So I FIRST tried the clear Ecostyler alone....HATED IT.
Next I tried another curl activator under the brown eco gel.....It looks good. I was pleased...

Well yesterday I picked up MORE long aid curl activator and did the following:
Washed in shower with Aussie Moist
Put about .50(two quarters in palm) worth of Aussie MOist in my hair as a leave in...
Then put .75 of Long aid Curl Activator in hair
Pulled .75 of Clear Eco Styler gel thru my hair

Results...
Perfect Ringlets and awesome smelling hair!
It looks REALLY similar to when I first tried KCCC and it is MUCH cheaper. If you like KCCC and need something cheaper or you are out and can not order right away...this combo may work for you.

I will try it a few more times then include some pictures...

I've been thinking of purchasing EcoStyler for a while now, but was still on the fence. What's your hair type, cause I'm a 4a/b and I I'm not sure it will work for me. I have 10" hair stretched and I really want definition with minimal shrinkage.

I am 3c/4a. U should definanitely try it. Allot of 4a's have success with it. The key is a good leav ein under it.
I got it from Kinkerbelle...and she is a 4a. She is on fotki and her hair is gorgeous!

I started with Infusium Leave in...which was great...and now I used the Aussie Moist and Long Aid Curl activator...

Okay, I just tried it, with so-so results, but I did ring the water out of my hair first. Does your hair have to be soaking wet for the right effect?

I never wring my hair out. I always style my puff on soaking wet hair.
