Thanks for the video. I can see now that I may have been too heavy handed with product so today I am going to try the watered down version of the knot today.

My first attempt came out great with lots of definition however, it brought me back to the reason why I had laid off of the kccc....my hair looks like a Jerri curl and the shrinkage is real. For my next attempt I am going to so the method but do flat twists instead of leaving it in its naturally curly state.

My hair is fine and collar bone length stretched so hopefully once I gain more length it will look better.

I am going to attempt to post some pics on here later today
i water down the conditioner 4 squirts in 8 oz of water an shake. In the vid it was actually too foamy than i like and dried a bit too soft, causing more shrinkage.


Ok pinke at first I thought watering down the conditioner was optional, but what you're saying makes sense. So I will try to water mine down more. I've been using conditioner straight out of the bottle for the baking soda step because I don't like mine to be runny. (it's super messy when it's all runny and stuff)


Hi aharri. Yeah it drips, putting on a shower cap and securing the edges with an old scarf or hair wrap helps.

Thanks iheartsmimi!!

Actually with this my hair dried really soft. I should've watered it down slightly more, but i didn't see how foamy the conditioner was until i got to the front of my head, and had to slide some of the water out. Usually i do my hair in the mirror and am able to see what im doing.

I could feel some cast, and i had definition, but it dried much softer than i like on first day hair. My hair felt very spongy, almost like i had no product in it. Basically the wetter and slippery your hair feels, and the more foam you see in the conditioner step before you apply gel, the softer your hair will dry.

Thx pinkecube for posting the video for steps 4 & 5. Ur hair came out great! I see I have some work to do with these last 2 steps. The video was very helpful. I will try it again tomorrow and I will go back to the Kinky curly products cuz I think the conditioner I'm currently using isn't playing nice with either of my gels.


Your welcome, i'm glad this was helpfulSmile

Your welcome natural essence, lol.Smile

If you want a little stretch you can try the stretching options in step 6.

http://forum.blackhairmedia.com/the-max-hydration-methodfrom-my-other-post_topic368937_page48.html

If you want to wear flat twists there is nothing wrong with doing that either, just do not skip the gel step, and do not stretch the wash and go longer than 3 days.

 Also if you have any lazy days, where you wont have time to do your hair, just do step 1, and then deep condition. Keep the showercap on under your scarf, wig, beanie, whatever. This will keep you retaining moisture until you can complete the other steps. Just make sure that once it gets to 3 days, you repeat step 1 again.

Can't wait to try it! It will probably take me 3-4 months though to use up my 16 oz jar of KCCC Confused

Edit: Ahh I'm just gonna buy it. My curiosity got the best of me

Yea I did try the GTCG with the knot today. I did have better definition but please keep n mind that I'm still struggling with steps 4 & 5. My hair does air dry crunchy with the glaze but once you scrunch out the crunch then it fine. I still like the KCCC too so either one will work with the knot today. The glaze isn't as slimmy as the kinky curly which I like.
