Kinky Curly Curling Custard Killer? Komaza Care Coconut Hair Pudding

Wow, that was a mouthful. I won’t lie, I’m feeling especially lazy today. I’m not sure what it is…but I’d like a nap. But I’m going to write about one of the alternatives to KCCC, the Komaza Care Coconut Hair Pudding. First off, I’d like to say that Komaza has pretty awesome shipping; I ordered my products on Thursday (Thanksgiving) and they arrived on Monday. Granted, I live in California, but that is still super great for Thanksgiving sale shipping. I totally couldn’t wait to try this stuff – I’ve been looking for another styler to rival KCCC, and have had no such luck so far. This stuff actually looks kind of like KCCC, but it’s not as slimy and definitely thicker. It looks like…clear glue kind of, but thankfully, it doesn’t smell like it. The pudding smells yummy, like coconuts, but not too sweet. So tropical! Here’s what I did:

Cleanse: ACV rinse

Cowash: TJ’s TTT

Leave-in: Komaza Care Coconut Curl Lotion…and here’s where we need to start. Okay, um, first of all, I am really stupid for putting this moisturizer in my wet relaxed tips. It has oil in it, which means it’s great for weighing hair down…but my tips need to curl UP. My bad. I put the lotion all over my head instead of using more conditioner as a leave in, then applied the pudding using the “finger styling” method, if you wanna call it that. I really just call it me slapping gunk on my head. But as soon as I applied the product, there were these icky white spots in my hair – very uncute. Also, I’m guessing because of the oils, my hair was not curling up on top at all, also not cute.

I sat there looking at my reflection for a few minutes, and considered jumping back in the shower and starting all over again, then was like, “You know what? Let me get out my KCCC, further test this HG status.” So, I applied KCCC over the KCCHP and *wham* *bam* *zop* all over those weirdo white spots. For those of you who have never watched old school Batman, that means they got beat up and were gone. Sweet…I didn’t put KCCC on my sides and back, but I brushed my hair and the spots went away too, I guess the brushing helping the product absorb more into my hair.

Okay, the GREAT thing about the KCCHP is that it made the KCCC dry MUCH MUCH faster. Furthermore, my roots were not weighed down as much, so my hair was fluffier much faster. Combined with KCCC, the curls were also very defined and non-frizzy. As for my hair without KCCC, the curls were definitely defined and super soft, almost like, they were less punk looking and more girly. Much less of that “gel feel.” However, I will say that I couldn’t really brush my hairline back like I usually do. Still, it was a win! The breakdown:

Ingredients: Coconut Oil, Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter, Sunflower Oil Dipalmitoylethyldimonium Chloride (A derivitive of Palm Oil) aloe vera, acrylates, alkyl acrylates, Sodium Benzoate, Potassium Sorbate, Polysorbate 20, Cinnamom Cassia. Sorbate, cinnamon cassia.

Pros: Yummy smell/curls poppin’/hair dried faster (great for winter use)/gave me soft pillow head

Cons: White spots (with the lotion)/had to combine with KCCC/can’t obtain on the ground

Conclusion: I like this stuff, but am going to continue to play with it and try it without combining with the lotion and see what happens. Combined with the HG though, I definitely liked this better than AnGell (which is great, because I’m almost out, haha). But the question is…will I ever find something to REPLACE KCCC, rather than just compliment it? I do like it though, so if you wanna pick it up, go to Afrokinks, CurlMart or Komaza’s site and “get you some!”

Stay tuned…xoxo

Update: Used the pudding without the lotion just now, and still got white spots. Guessing it’s the coconut oil in the pudding (the proof is in the pudding), so I layered it with KCCC again to alleviate the issue. There is minimal shrinkage so far and I think it would be great for elongation…these damn white spots though…

Update Update: I actually ended up being wrong about this Pudding, check out the final word in this video!

  1. Hi, I have question for you, my daughter has kinky curling hair and looking for something that will hold her curl without drying it out or making an afro, I seen at meijers o’sheas curlying pudding and wondered if you have ever heard/tried this, it cost 10.00 and has no mineral oil, thanks Jenn

  2. Why replace the product if you like it? I have used it for the past year and it is awesome. There is nothing else like it.

    1. The thing I don’t like about KCCC is the amount of time it takes to dry because you have to wait to scrunch out any crunch you have. This a) makes you not have cute hair until like, the middle of the day and b) you have to excuse yourself to go to the bathroom to scrunch your hair if you are in a social setting. It’s something I can live with, but if I found a product with all the benefits and without those faults, I’d def switch!
