    Posted: Feb 24 2012 at 7:01am

Hi ladies, I seem to find post on BHM and You Tube to add curls, but nothing about boiling to loosen a curl. I think I read about this option some years ago and I want to try it on a KC unit that I have.  I want to loosen the curls.

Any idea on how I could do this by boiling in water and for how long?   I don’t want it completely straight, but I do want to loosen the curls.

I wouldn't suggest doing this. I did it once years ago, and the curl no longer looked right. If you have an older unit maybe...but it could shed something awful as well.
If kinky curly was too much for you, sell it and get a deep curly. I love both.Tongue

I'd suggest selling it as well, lots love the KC texture. Smile

ETA to say that I remembered reading in the weaves section of someone who used a curl remover to straighten out her KC to KS.  Here's the original thread, and here's the link to the product on Sally's:

rit dye remover will loosen the curls.
I used it once on a kinky curly, mainly to lighten the color, but it also loosened the texture, which was an added bonus for me because it was too short (14inches)
You only need to dip it in the water quickly, since the water is really hot.
The only/main draw back to using the rit dye remover, is that it smells really bad. And you have to wash the hair really good to get the smell out.
I used it once, washed the hair for a long time, and the next time I wore it, when it rained, i started smelling it again.

I went to Sally's and purchased Curl Remover. It worked.  I only left it on for 5 to 7 mins. i wanted loose curls. Longer would have gotten in straight and shorter would've left it more curly. It is right where I need it to be. Thanks.

I'm gonna try this now. I just got a kinky curly, but it was tighter than pictured, so I'm going to loosen the curls on one of them.
although there's so much hair, I'd have to put that stuff on in sections. otherwise one side would be striaght before I was even done.
I don't know if I could sell these

Idalis, try washing it a few times to see how the curl pattern adjusts before you use the curl remover.  It might loosen up some on its own.

It's so tight the 18 inches looks like 14.
I'll post pictures of them when I get back from class. (Instead of skipping class, I'll go for an hour & a 1/2; I'm too excited about this wig; I won't be missing anything important, just speeches/public speaking)

Thanks for the tip on the curl remover...I have a unit that is too curly for me so I will try this to loosen the curl.
