Well, I went to Ulta!!
I got the AG Fast Food Sulfate-Free Moisturizing Shampoo and (because they were out of the FF Leave-in and Re:Coil Conditioner) had to get the AG Sleek Argan Oil Conditioner. Hopefully the argan will make my hair healthier(: I'll let you all know how they work! I plan to go back and get some AG stylers while they're on sale, too.

Here are my reviews so far...

AG Fast Food Moisture & Shine Sulfate-Free Shampoo:
This is wonderful! It's an excellent shampoo that cleanses without stripping at all. I think it might even add some moisture. Great buy!

AG Sleek Argan Conditioner:
It does exactly what it says it will do. It definitely has softened and smoothed my hair; however, I think it has straightened it a little bit. The argan oil is supposed to make hair healthy, though, and it does feel pretty healthy. Though my hair is really soft, it doesn't really hold its curl like it did before or spiral like it used to. I don't know if I should continue using it...

AG Liquid Effects:
I just bought this styling "lotion" today, but it's more of a thin gel or serum, I think. The hold is pretty good, and it isn't crunchy for me at all. It doesn't really clump, though...but I'll try it out with a better leave-in. Right now, I'm using the AG Sleek Argan Conditioner as my leave-in, but I think it's weighing me down. I hate to say it, but I might incorporate HE Hello Hydration Conditioner back into my routine. I know it's probably bad for my hair, but the clumps are amazing!

I bought the AG Curl activating shampoo and conditioner yesterday so I'll be trying today.

I saw the Liquid Effects mentioned- this is almost HG for me. I get better curl definition with smaller clumps, and this stuff plays very well with lots of other products.

Out of curiosity (no really - I'm on a no-buy aside from the Ulta liter sale), how does the Liquid Effects compare to the Re:coil Curl Activator?

TIA!

I tried out some samples I had from Koils by Nature, and I love them! I'm thinking I am going to keep using the Fast Food Shampoo but purchase the full size Koils by Nature Shealoe Conditioner and Peppermint Herbal Gel. I had planned before to share the AG stuff with my dad, but I'm thinking I will just give him the sleek conditioner for him to use exclusively because it seems like it would fit his hair type better and not weigh it down.

That shampoo, though...sooo good!
I will share it with him...........................but it might be a little hard, hahaha. Just kidding

Oh! And I've never tried the Re:Coil Curl Activator, but the Liquid Effects has a thin gel, almost serum, consistency. It is awesome for separation and gives pretty good hold without crunch, but it doesn't really do anything for enhancement for me. HTH(:

The Curl Activator and Liquid Effects do two totally different things. Curl Activator is a curl cream. I use the Liquid Effects as my gel. The curl activator is definitely HG for me (that and Curls Rock Amplifier are my HG curl creams). I don't always use together because I'm trying to kill a massive amount of stash.

I tried the shampoo and conditioner this morning and was very impressed. I used the same styling products and techniques that I did yesterday and had a lot less frizz, even in awful humidity.
