Meet Kim

Kim wanted to disrupt the narrative which portrayed thick curly hair as 'frizzy' 'difficult' and 'unmanageable'. So she created SKIMDO - an amazing curl cream that gives long-lasting hold and touchability, and which looks so chic on your shelf!

Best wash n' go of my life today! Skimdo is literal hair crack

Skimdo cream is the holy grail of hair products for me. Since I started using it compliments on my curls have become a daily occurrence. The process takes about an hour but once a week after a wash I set my hair with this product. It involves raking the cream through damp hair misting sections with water and hand curling the ringlets. The curls always look natural and stay in place for up to a week.

Smells amazing, light formula, decadent, and no flaking!

SKIMDO FAQ'S

How Do I Use SKIMDO Original Cream?

SKIMDO Original Cream was designed to work best with finger twisting method seen in our tutorial video here. Work the product into wet hair after shampooing and conditioningIt can also prep the hair for flat-braiding and two-strand twisting, as well as blow-drying. It is excellent on hair pieces, and wigs made from real hair or false hair. It is wonderful used as a 'dry-conditioner' neat, between washes as a deodorising refresher. Men love to use it in their beards.

How Much SKIMDO Original Cream should I use?

This depends on how thick or/and long your hair is. The gel-cream is very concentrated, so start with 2 or 3 pumps and work through from the ends upwards to the root. Repeat until every strand of hair is coated. If you have thin or fine hair, start with 1 or 2 pumps and see how you go. Although the product is not greasy, it is medium weight and has a natural hold so baby steps are better. You will know if you have used too much product, as the hair will feel hard and possibly look flakey. If this happens, just spray generously with water and brush through with a tangle teaser. Then give it a quick wipe downwards from the root, with an old t-shirt NOT a towel.

How often should I use SKIMDO Original Cream?

SKIMDO Original Cream was designed to give freedom from daily hair-styling by holding curls in flexible suspension for up to a week.. It was designed to be used once a week, however this can depend on your lifestyle. It was designed to withstand sweat and light rain, however your personal preference or curl texture may mean that you use it every 4 days or so. 

Is SKIMDO Original Cream only for Afro hair?

SKIMDO Original Cream is all inclusive, not exclusive. It is for every type of curly hair you can imagine. Although it was created by Kim, who is of Black and White heritage, it fits all.
