I have 3C hair with some 4A on my temples. I got the sample size of this at Ulta to see how it would work. When I first used it, I put it on with the AG gel on top of it and sealed my hair with oil. The next day my hair felt dry, and I was unimpressed. I decided to take the gel back to Ulta and get a refund, but kept the AG Fast Food Conditioner. Recently, I did it again by mixing AG Fast Food with Giovanni Leave In Conditioner; then I put on some KCCC, and sealed with oil. SUPER SOFT HAIR! I am online now, and will order the AG Fast Food in a bigger size. I believe it was the AG gel that probably dried my hair out, not the conditioner. And I've used Giovanni Leave in on it's own before I even knew about Fast Food, and while good, it didn't give me the softness I got when I mixed the two together. Gel works better than styling creams to define my curls, but my hair is picky about gel; if it has too much alcohol or crap ingredients, it rebels. Found the 12oz bottle of Fast Food on Overstock.com for $14. This will be one of my staples!
I love the smell of this product ! I have repeatedly bought this leave-in conditioner. Recently I have noticed it not feeling as moisturizing - I am not sure if its my hair being more dry overall or perhaps a change in ingredients in the product. (I have not paid attention to the ingredients as much as i should. I first heard about in December of 2007, an associate in a shopping mall suggested the AG line. It is not as easy to find in stores anymore. I am very happy CurlMart sells it!
Best stuff ever! Never have I ever found a leave in conditioner so lightweight. It smooths things down, keeps my hair soft, and smells awesome.
Keeps my hair at next to no frizz. I apply it before styling with Eco styler gel when I'm going for mega hold in my curls. This conditioner smells yummy too!
Not usually one to apply a leave-in conditioner to my 2C/3A-B hair, I have to say AG's Fast Food is a real winner, making it worth the extra step (and $$) in my styling regimine. Fast Food is light enough to actually "leave in" yet packs enough of a moisture punch to knock out most of the frizz. Like all the other AG products I've tried, Fast Food smells delightful and not too strong after the hair has dried. My only complaint is the price, but then again, it seems very difficult to find any product that works as advertised AND comes with a bargain price.
Eh, I'm torn... I put this on my stretched hair before twisting it out and when I untwisted it, I felt like I had a a great semi-miracle cream. However when I used it as a leave-in after washing the slip that I thought I would get was not there... It smells great and I like it, but only on my dry (or lightly misted) hair for maintenance. So I like it, but I did want more from it when I wash.
I love this! It's no miracle, but it protects my hair from heat damage and also gives my hair a really nice curl. It made my hair smoother, and my hair wasn't greasy or crunchy at all! Didn't solve my puffiness problem, though. And I love the smell :)
Don't sleep on this one 4a's. Good detangler and it left my hair soft and my curls poppin! It does have an A-cone, but I like any way.
(4C hair) So far, one of the best leave-ins I've tried. I use it everyday on dry hair to detangle. Also use with a hair cream/butter for added softeness. The cream by itself does not detangle as well as this product. I live in the north and was looking for a non-glycerine product for winter (glycerine dries my hair badly in winter, but very moisturizing in summer due to higher humidity). I think I've found it...going to buy another bottle today!
I like this leave in especially when I straighten my hair but it is not good when I leave my hair to air dry. My hair because very frizzy and I do not get defined curls either. The second day my curls become droopy and ugly.
I love it! This is the only LI that has ever worked in my hair. It leaves my curls soo soft & moisturized. All other LI leave my hair feeling dried out..used w/ AG re:coil it's even more wonderful! TRY IT!
I have to admit that I didn't expect much with this leave-in. I expected something akin to a Garnier Fructis product with the amodimethicone and peg-40 castor oil placement in the ingreds. However, my curls were soft and bouncy with this leave-in. Also, this leave-in didn't interfere with other stylers I used so I didn't get cottage cheese clumps or flakes nor a difference in how the stylers I paired it with made my curls behave. Simply amazing!
I love this stuff! I've been using it for just under a year now. I use it with my hair very wet (just this side of sopping wet). I use about a quarter's size in amount on scrunched into upside hair and another dime sized amount scrunched into the very ends of my hair when my head is flipped back up. I follow it with AG's Recoil and use a bit of extra antifrizz serum on rainy days, I get fat bouncy smooth curls that get noticed constantly by strangers. Love it!
Love, love love this product. Every other leave in conditioner I used still left my hair dry but when I used this my hair was sooo soft. I use it with recoil and it works amazing. I definitely recommend this.
This leave-in conditioner worked really well for my very coarse and dry curls. I was skeptical at first because the conistency felt very light but it did provide the hydration that my curls. Once it dried, the curls felt very soft. I would have given it 4 curls if it didnt have amethicone.
I really like this deep conditioner! It's light and doesn't weigh my hair down. The scent is barely there. It combs thru and detangles my hair very well. I do use it along with Ag recoil. Together they give me soft, loose curls. As far as elongation,it doesn't shrink my hair too badly, but I have to use a third product for extra elongation.
Love it. Light yet moisturizing. Great scent. I had good volume (but not too much) and good curl definition. My hair--even the ends--felt soft at the end of the day. For me, that's the real test! I used it as a bottom layer for styling products. I think it made them work better.
I bought this about 3 months ago. I'm not sure if it was this product or the AG Recoil, but I had a white residue that would wipe off on my hands after my hair dried. I haven't used it since, I'm thinking about trying them seperately and using less. But so far I'm not impressed.
LOVE this stuff. It smells wonderful and when I use the right amount (dime size) it helps keep my hair looking piecy and frizz free. This has definitely helped transform my unruly hair into pretty waves.
I'm 3b with fine hair, so if the product's too heavy, it weighs my hair down. This product will definitely make your hair softer, but it's just not that great. It weighs my hair down a little too much, and if I use too little, it doesn't do enough. And it's not strong enough for humid days, so it's definitely a cold-weather product if anything. Plus, as a leave-in conditioner I'd rather it not have dimethicone.
I love this product used in conjunction with Rusk Wired styling cream. Alone, this doesn't cut it for my 3A hair. It is also great by itself as an end of the day pick-me-up for dull, dry hair. It adds shine and manageability. However, without the Wired, it does not tackle my frizz issues.
I love this product! After reading all the reviews I decided to try it for myself. This product leaves my hair so soft and works well as a detangler, and doesn't leave it feeling weighed down, oh and it smells GREAT! I use it as a base product to keep my curls soft...then I top it off with my other favorite products. If you have curly kids this is a fantastic product for the tangles! Just try it you'll see!!
I love this stuff! It works for everything except real dryness and overworked hair. It's great for traveling - I have a small size for that. Almost too heavy for my fine 3c hair, but usually just right.
I read so many rave reviews but it didn't do anything for me I am sad to say. I think it made my hair frizzier rather than aiding in curl definition. It did keep my hair soft however.
Very nice leave-in. Smells very sweet, and is almost enough hold for my hair by itself. This might end up as a must have for me.
This is the best leave in I've ever used. It smells great and leaves my hair feeling very soft.
Very good conditioner and detangler, but the smell was killing me. I can't stand anything that smells like orange bang! If you can take the smell, very good product.
i really like this product. just ordered some more, after not using it for a while. it is light and has a great scent. i am hoping to try the the other products that this company makes very soon.
I love this leave in conditioner! Its light weight, smells great and doesn't interfere with my other curl products. A little goes a long way and I highly recommend it. I have LONG SUPER THICK hair and this helps detangle it, and makes it soft when it air dries.
I thought it was ok. It left my hair soft and shiny. Although it did help with the frizzing, my hair was still kind of frizzy. I used this product alone on my hair, but i think that it may work best when used together with something else.
I have used this product here and there. I love the scent. I love that small amounts do a lot. It does seem to pull out the curl a wee bit, so I apply small amounts to ends only.
Now that I don't need extreme moisture and conditioning that I get with KMS hydrating conditioner, I decided to give this a try. A review above stating that this took away the need for a daily and deep conditioner led me to give this a try. I am glad I did! After I shampoo my hair, I wring the drips out and apply this to my hair. Wow! Pefect consistency, detangles and moisturizes just right- leaving my hair very soft too! No more daily and deep conditioners for me- and I color and highlight my hair every 6-8 weeks. It's true that this doesn't interfere at all with the curl activators effectiveness. It doesn't weigh your hair down at all. It feels light in the hair, which I love. That was another concern I had about using a leave in. I used to just leave a little bit of KMS in as it weighed my hair down, but this is better for me. I highly recommend it!
Not only does it moisturize and help detangle my hair, but it really does not affect the performance of my curl-enhancing products. Sometimes a leave-in conditioner can make a great curl enhancing product into a not-so-great product. Not the case with fastfood.
I think this conditioner rocks. Like most AG products, it's concentrated, but what I really like is that I don't need a daily conditioner plus a leave in plus a deep conditioner. My hair loves this stuff.
It's a good leave in, but I could take it or leave it. It has a nice smooth texture and distributes easily. Signature orange creamsicle/orange creamsavers smell. It's not better than my regular leave in, but it does the job.
It is a wonderful product.It's very light,doesn't way hair down and it smells great.It really defines the curls and gives it bounce.
I love this leave-in. I think it's one of my favorites ever. It has a nice creamy consistency and really seemed to reduce the frizz. Nice light scent too.
