Default difference between AnGel and ArcAnGel??

What is really the differerence between these two products, and why do you prefer one over the other?

Arc Angel has much more hold than AnGel. I have both, but prefer the stronger hold of Arc Angel.

Will not repurchase AnGel since I had to add another product on top to get enough hold (No plan to repurchase ArcAngel either though. Worked fine, but was not thrilled with it).

Well, I am still experimenting. I have the Deva foam, which is not enough by itself, but then again, no mousse is, and I have done best with mousse and gel. I exchanged the ArcAngel for the mousse because my hair felt too coated with the ArcAngel. I wish the ArcAngel came in small bottles, so I could try the combo of Deva foam with a bit of ArcAngel, but my salon does not carry it. So I thought I would try the foam with a bit of the AnGel, which is does have in trial sizes. It remains to be seen whether this will work the same or better than Aussie mousse, and a bit of LSLSG, the much more economical combo.

Won't repurchase either because I've since found other products I like better, but I didn't care for AnGel at all - little to no hold. I liked ArcAngel pretty well, but I had to be sure to rotate it with other gels as it tended to build up on me. Too bad because I love it's scent
2C/3A/3B - mod. CG, med. to fine, normal to low porosity/normal elasticity

Current Main Rotation: MG217 medicated, GTTT or Aim2Health 'poos as scalp needs, YTCarrots or Elucence cond., Spiral Solutions Protein Trtmt & Deeply Decadent Cond., CJCCCC reg or lite, KCCC, AO Mandarin Magic, Giovanni LA Hold Hair Spritz + lots more, sporadically

HG Method: Super Soaker + Smasters-ing, brief upside down diffusing then clips or clamps & air dry. Blend gray w/henna glosses

I like Angell better than Arcangell when used alone. The Angell when dry leaves my hair kinda stiff, but it scrunches out beautifully! I think the cast that it forms over my hair protects the formed curl when drying by preventing it from frizzing out.

Still, I do like to have another firmer hold mousse or gel over the top. Usually it's Joico Joiwhip.
mostly 3a/some 3b/2c at the nape
med-coarse and porous
Current routine:
Cleansing: Co-wash with V05, JCCC
Leave-in: KCKT
HESMU, Joiwhip
Protein Treatment: Ion effective care treatment
