There's a real fine line between too much and too little with both boots and recoil.
I like boots and recoil together but I have to be careful not to use too much or I get gunky hair. Oh and I don't use a leave in with boots. Some do but my hair cant' handle both generally unless it's bone dry cold cold dead of winter.
lushaholic needs to get in here, she's the queen of mixing boots and recoil and making her hair look fab with it.
