Set it Free - how to use?

Do you use SIF before you put on your gel or after? Also, how much do you use?

Any other tips on how to use this stuff?

Thanks!
I use about 4 pumps, sprayed in my hands, to scrunch out the crunch after my hair is fully dry. I also use it on second day hair to tame the frizzies. For second day hair I generally use a couple pumps and smooth it over.

Ditto. Except I scrunch it in second day hair too. I love it!

I do the same. I mostly just use it on second day hair. Spray 4 sprays into my hands and scrunch in.

Devachan told me to spray it into soaking wet hair before Angell (use about 3-4 pumps on midlength and ends) and then apply gel. Scrunch with paper towels and clip. Use 1-2 light sprays (mist) over clips. Let dry and then spray a small amt. into my hands, rub them together well and scrunch out the my hair.

I have no luck with 2nd day hair with it. It leaves my hair dull and frizzy. However, after learning their technique I've finally had success. It really does add some shine and hold.

I like it best on post-plopping, damp hair. After I take my hair out of the towel I spray some on my hands then smooth them over my hair.

3B Corkscrew... I'm back on the boards now! Just got The Big Chop on Monday, pics coming soon.
This weekend Devachan styled my hair with just SIF!
I didn't think that it was going to hold. I always use
gel. He applied it to sopping wet hair and raked it in,
dried it and viola!

Wow, really? How much did he use? Do you usually need a lot of hold? I just might have to try this.

Can someone please list the ingredients of SIF here? I was at the website the other night and looked everywhere but I guess now they don't list the ingredients of the products anymore... Thanks!

Nope, no crunch at all. Lovely touchable curls! He used a bit more in the back because it tends to be a bit curly back there (maybe 5 sprays) and just raked and played with my hair. He used maybe 3-4 sprays in the front.

Note: He also left a lot of conditioner in my hair. He left about 80% and applied a bit more especially to the end. If you are going to try this, you may need to adjust depending your curl type. HTH

I can easily believe that SiF atop a lot of conditioner would work well; but who can afford it? I love SiF, I think it is one of their best products, but I definitely have to use it to augment the cheaper Angell. I just need too much product to use it as the primary holding agent.

Do you get second day hair with these products?

I have been using it this way, after reading this post & love the way my hair looks! I leave in the One C (a pretty decent amount) & just use SIF as my styler. I sometimes drop a little Confident Coils on first - but my hair does not look crunchy & so far (knock on wood) looks soft & defined.
