what's your favorite cream/gel combo?
I *think* I need a cream to define the curls and a gel to hold hair is fine and looses curl easily so Im trying to boost the natural curl while fighting frizz AND getting more, what's your favorite combo?

recoil and Angell or recoil and B&A or umm dude recoil and any gel.

Recoil and anything for me too. It's the only product I use every day.

LOL Yeah, recoil is the best...

Recoil under B&A is almost always a 100% guarantee for a good hair day for me. :)

I like re:coil with ArcAngell. I also use re:coil under JoiWhip Mousse, which is obviously not a gel but has great hold and also enhances my curl.

unique1193 01-08-2007 01:54 PM

ditto recoil.
haha :]
and I ususally use it with he body envy, works like a charm.

Does a tube of Recoil last a long time? I'd hate to spend that much on a product and run out of it quickly.


lushaholic 01-08-2007 02:21 PM

sherry, my tubes of Recoil always last me about 10 months, and I have longer hair.

Kaia 01-08-2007 02:24 PM

Mine lasts me about 4 months, but I use more than most people and I use it everyday.

lushaholic 01-08-2007 02:29 PM

I use about a quarter size blob or 2 nickel sized blobs each time, but I don't use it more than 3 times a week because I'm able to get at least 2nd day hair out of mine each time.

Brio 01-08-2007 05:11 PM

grrrrrrrr. I've been talking myself out of trying recoil since Christmas when I got some money for a gift. With all this talk about recoil, I can't take it anymore!

Where is the cheapest place I can get this stuff?

medusahair 01-08-2007 05:20 PM

I'm not sure if that link will work right. It's on ebay, two tubes starting bid is 19.99. They have two up like that.
I don't know if I've seen it cheaper anywhere else.

Brio 01-08-2007 05:26 PM

can't. resist. clicking. on. link. now . . . .

sherry7899 01-08-2007 05:51 PM

Thanks for your responses. I can't order anything right now, but I'll wait for the next Curlmart sale.

The ebay seller also has Deva products:


tinicurlyd 01-08-2007 05:59 PM

i second re:coil too . i also use it everyday practically and the tube last me about 4 months as well . i can get re:coil here at a beauty school salon but i tend to also get some on the swap board . boots is another 1 that i use over re:coil.

cjc 01-08-2007 06:18 PM

Do you use re:coil after leave-in cond. but under gel?

lushaholic 01-08-2007 06:52 PM

cjc, that's how I use it. Sometimes even without gel.

Brio 01-09-2007 03:15 PM

I couldn't resist. I started looking locally (within a 50 mile radius) and found a salon in the town my SIL lives in that carries this stuff. The owner has decided not to carry this line anymore and has one tube of recoil left. She will sell it to me for $12.00!!!

I should have asked her about the Fast Food, too. :twisted:
