You can get some afro kinky curly from pretty much any CV. The shorter lengths (<16in) have a tighter kink/coil.

Leave about a finger's width of leave out and blend with a twist-out.

Hi miss B
Thanks for your suggestion :-) the thing is the curls are too loose for my liking and blending is a constant problem as even though the twist or curls look similar texture difference is apparent.

What if you brush the hair out?  I had some kinky curly last winter and when I did a blowout on my leave-out and brushed the weave out (separated the curls), it matched perfectly.

When my AKC arrived I wondered too b/c while it's still in the pack it doesn't look like it'll blend. Trust me the definition in the curls changes quickly, and it will only be as defined as you want it. The coils clump when I co-wash but I just separate the ones around the front and I'm good to go. Over time coils clump less and it looks even more natural.

Are you sure you aren't confusing kinky curly with afro kinky curly? AKC is much tighter texture and is perfect match for type 4 hair with the blending tips I mentioned. You won't need anything more than a twist-out. The ONLY times I had a little trouble blending is when I didn't give myself enough time to set my twist-out and my shrinkage got me, lol

The more this hair is manipulated, the less the coils are apparent.

TRUST US! lol

Hey miss b

Thank you again, you actually have great advice!
The hair I am wearing now I never have to twist or manipulate, I just moisturise, seal, tie it up at night and I am good to go in the morning after a little shake.
Every 2-3 days I comb it out from tip to wefts just to avoid matting but other than that it was good for me, just not at the price I paid.

I think when my hair grows I will revisit your advice as you seem to have good knowledge and tips which I really appreciate :-)

BTW you are correct in that kinky curly and afro kinky curly can be confused, some vendors use the terms interchangeably with hair pictures that look like jheri curl, or other tight curls, it gets confusing

Thank you too naturalchick! I didn't consider a blow out. Did you wet it again after? Did the curls come back the same?

Definitely have to agree with this. define the curls with a denman or whatever tool and let it dry but separate in the front to blend.  Don't be afraid to manipulate the hair. Twist outs and twisting the hair with your own helps too.  



Don't get caught up on vendors either.  You can get nice akc hair from a lot of places, u just have to find a vendor you trust that will listen to what u want.  And send them afro hair pics too.
