This is another product that took sanctuary at my house after my girl T Payne gave it the boot. She had picked up BBCR at Target looking for a good Wash-n-Go gel that she could find on the ground that was widely available. We were both eager to try Kimble Hair Care System products because it is the product line of famed Kim Kimble and were proud that it was going to be carried in Target stores across the US, Black Girls Rock! Anyway T Payne used the gel a few times and her results were less than stellar so she gave it to me to try.
The product is basically a glycerin hair gel that claims to moisturize, soften and define curls. First, I tried it as a wash-n-go styler applied to damp hair alone. In a few hours my hair dried frizzy and undefined, fail. Next I tried on top of KBB Sweet Ambrosia to see if I could get better results. My hair still did not look more defined so I applied KMF Upper Management Gel on top and got good results. However I get good results with KBB and KMF without BBCR so that was also a no go. Lastly I tried it on a chunky twist-out. I applied the product to damp hair and twisted my hair into about 12 twists and let dry. When I untwisted my hair was no more defined then when I just a leave-in condish, and it just turned big a frizzy. No bueno. Bottom line the BBCR just isn’t the one for me and really didn’t see a use for it.
My daughter tried it mixed with Eco Styler gel and it did help remove some of the crunch she gets from Eco Gel alone. However she can also get those same results by using an off the shelf curl activator at a much cheaper price.
While I really wanted to like this product and I gave it several chances to impress me it simply failed to do so. I would not recommend the purchase of this product and would not purchase it in the future.
