Description

Keep your natural waves beautiful and shiny with the Original Curling Custard Gel from Kinky Curly. This styling gel will moisturize your hair, leaving each curl perfectly defined. The all-natural botanical formula is designed to reduce bulk while adding shine and lasting hold, so you can say goodbye to frizzy, untamed curls and enjoy your strengthened and nourished curls.

Utilizing the humectant properties of the agave nectar, Curling Custard will give weight to your hair, define your curls, remove frizz, provide long-lasting hold and shine without ever being greasy, crunchy or drying.

**NOTE- This product is designed to work alone but ultimate curl definition and length can be achieved when used with KNOT TODAY as a leave-in conditioner.

How to Use:

Apply the Kinky-Curly Knot Today (for best results) on very wet hair*. Apply custard evenly in sections to very wet hair^.

Smooth the custard into each section from roots to ends. If sections start to dry out, spray water into hair and then add custard. Thicker tighter curls need more product and loose wavy curls use less.

Use more product for very controlled curls and use less product if you want more fullness and body. Allow hair to air dry, do not touch hair while it is drying or it will start to frizz. Then dry gently scrunch out the crunch.

* If it is not wet enough your hair will dry sticky.
^ If it is not applied evenly you will get frizz.

Q: I have a tapered TWA. How would I use this product to get curl definition?

submitted by HonnyBrown - 5 years ago
  • A: What works for me is applying the gel to my hair while soaking wet. Apply custard section by section as raking the custard through your hair with your fingers. Similar to how you'd do a wash and go. Hope this helps! This product works better for my curl definition, better than any other product I've used in the past.

    submitted byMegan - 5 years ago
  • A: Use the Kinky Curly Knot Today Leave in Conditioner and then apply the Curling Custard to your hair.

    submitted bySjanae90 - 5 years ago
  • A: I agree with Megan's comment. I have a TWA as well. Hair should be very wet. When you find the right ratio between water and the product, you will get GREAT curl definition. It may take a couple of times of experimenting, but when you get it down, you won't be disappointed.

Q: Does this have a strong fragrance?

submitted by Andie - 4 years ago
  • A: I don't think it's strong. It has a sweet candy, kinda like cotton candy smell.

    submitted byErica C - 3 years ago
  • A: It's a pretty faint fragrance to my nose. Nice, but definitely very light and not anything that will compete with other fragrances.

    submitted byCarolH - 3 years ago

Q: Does this product have a strong and moisturizing hold?

submitted by Liv - 5 years ago
  • A: I think so. Their are stronger holds with general styling gels but those don't curl your hair. Kinky Curly has a pretty good hold that rubs off fairly easily (it doesn't stay through the night).

    submitted byAnnette - 5 years ago
  • A: I have used Kinky Curly for the past 2 years. The Kinky Curly Custard does NOT rub off. Yes, it has a Strong and Moisturizing hold.

    submitted bySjanae90 - 5 years ago

Q: What hair oil can I use with this.

submitted by Norma - 1 year ago
  • A: For best results apply CURLING CUSTARD TM to soaking wet, freshly washed hair. For very kinky and tightly coiled hair use KNOT TODAY TM as a leave-in conditioner then apply CURLING CUSTARD TM to soaking wet hair in small sections. Smooth each section with fingers from root to tip.

Q: Does this product have Linalool or limonene in it?

Q: does this product make your hair sticky or crunchy?

submitted by cindylou - 1 year ago
  • A: This will not leave your hair sticky or crunchy. Must allow to dry thoroughly.

Q: Hi, My KC Custard arrived with the Target seal and no other label... What's going on? It looks like the product but without the label how in the world can I be sure I've received the right product? I'm afraid to use it.

submitted by Grace - 2 years ago
  • A: This sounds like your product was damaged. Return it to the store and get a credit.

Q: Are kinky-curly products safe to use on color treated hair and not strip the color?

submitted by Marsha - 2 years ago
  • A: Yes! These items are safe for color treated hair.

Q: Can this gel be used with a curling cream and a diffuser? I usually use my cream, a gel, then diffuse. Does this well work for that or is it supposed to be on its own?

submitted by Carol - 2 years ago
  • A: Yes it can be used as curling cream with a diffuser.

I love the way this gel separate my curls and it lasts a couple days. It does flake on day 3 or if I mixed with anything. But it did not flake when I put it on right after washing without a leave-in conditioner.

Works well at reducing frizz but may flake if too much is used. It smells good and has been the best gel I have found at reducing frizz even a little on my 3C hair. It pairs well with the Kinky Curly leave in moisturizer!

I love this stuff because it defines my curls and also keeps my hair moisturized throughout the week. You should only use the knot today leave in and oil of choice w this, other leave ins tend to cause flaking and build up. ( I have high porosity 4b,4a hair). Only con is it is very expensive :(

This stuff is fantastic! I have very thick, curly, moisture-needy hair. I have a graveyard full of products that don’t work to tame my mane. This product is natural, smells great, and it works! It defines my curls, eliminates the frizz, and leaves my hair shiny and soft. Be sure to apply from roots to ends when your hair is SOAKING WET and then air dry. Love it!

I love the consistency of this custard and it smells heavenly, of vanilla. It took longer to dry than other gels because it is deeply moisturizing. Gave a nice cast and great hold that lasted 5 days. Beware there is no protein in this product and it can lead to overmoisturized hair.
