Short Series: Remnants of PJ-ism

This will be a short series on my attempt to finish a few remaining products from my 'product junkie' (PJ) days.

product junkie /ˈprädəkt ˈjəNGkē/ Noun
A person with an obsessive habit of purchasing and collecting products, particularly hair products.  

Today's remaining product: Kinky Curl Custard (KCC).

I actually like this product but do not really have a need for it in my regimen ... hence why it's got to go.  It's been sitting in my cabinet for over a year (maybe a year and a half?) and is on the verge of going bad.  That being said, it's the first on my "to finish" list.

Finishing strategy: Mix KCC with my homemade shea butter mix to create a super DUPER moisturizer and twisting/twistout custard in one!  I'm so loving the end result.

I have KCC too, for pretty much no reason lol. I'm determined to try some wash-n-going this summer to use it.

So funny that just today I was looking at my half jar of KCCC and said usually I'm good with purchases,(not a PJ person), but if I ever had one regret it was to purchase that. The KT I used as a leave in and never repurchased, the KCCC I tried all sorts of ways to incorporate in my regimen and my hair still felt like custard mixed with jello. Homemade shea mixes never worked for me as well, so I decided to use shea on my skin, face included, and that has been amazing. Your mix sounds interesting, but I will have to pass on it, lol! Mona

@Anonymous: Lol. I know what you mean about that jello feeling. :o)

Loo - I read this post about 2 weeks ago and had a eureka moment...what a great idea! That night I washed and twisted up my hair with the KCCC-Coco-Shea Mix. It didn't look too great, but boy oh boy did it do a number on my hair (in a good way). I went a whole week without having to re-moisturize my hair - and that is extremely rare for me...I struggle with dry hair and generally moisturize every other day. Not only were the twists moisturized, but after a week I unleashed the twists for the most awesomely defined & moisturized big bad twist out that held up beautifully for three more days. WIN, WIN, WIN :o) Cant wait to wash and twist again (hoping it wasn't a fluke!)
