Default question about AG products, recoil imparticular

I'm interested in the AG products and see that a lot of people here use them but when I was at the store last it seems like I noticed that they had alcohol in them, if not that then something that made me put it back. Are these CG friendly? and are they good? thanks!

I think that some of them, including the recoil, are CG, but many of them are not. I don't think the recoil has alcohol. You could probably find more input about them by using the search option.

I think re:coil is CG but not sure. Some people have problems with build up or is too drying due to the mag sulfate in it.

It does a good job enhancing my waves but I know I've had some build up recently. I had started using this as well as Ecostyler so I don't know if the combo of the both was the problem...

Can't use it...dries my hair something fierce. I want to try Curl Trigger, but I'm afraid it will be too much like Re:coil and be disastrous for my hair too.

Ecostyler really builds up on my hair and feels producty. Havent found a good routine with it, but try it occasionally just for fun.

Re:coil is great as a curl enhancer...but I can't use it more than once or twice...it's very drying to my hair.
