Have you tried using it under a gel instead of Re:coil?
I thought I'd have to change to a cream again this winter but I've been having tons of luck with a lot of CK (5 or 6 puddles), smoothing it on soaking soaking soaking wet hair upside down and then scrunching in my gel first to my crown and then more everywhere else. Then I scrunch about 30 times! Clip, squeeze out water, and either air or diffuse dry.
Try once more, you never know!
