AG RECOIL- new way for me
 
Ok so normally when I apply AG Recoil, I scrunch it in as soon as I get out of the shower. My hair is still pretty wet, then I plop and dry and have been generally happy with the results. BUT today, I was tired so I got out of the shower( and after my normal shampoo and condish) and I didn't apply it right away. I kind of just lounged around for about 10 minutes ( honestly I took a mini nap) then I scrunched it in. I could tell right away that my hair was ALOT drier, it was damp, not drippy wet. then I did my usual plop, then dried per normal & SOTC. Booyah! the curls I got were so amazing!!!! so happy with my hair. had to share. anyone else have similar results?

Wow - this is interesting! I'm going to try this method today and post back. Thanks so much for letting us know!

I've always used it while still in shower while hair is soaking, then scrunched in gel on top with good results. I haven't had any luck adding gel after my hair is drier so not sure i can do this.

Hmm. This might be a good method to try when I'm in a hurry and use mousse, now that I think about it. I do use that on drier hair and it takes less time to diffuse. I need to try this. Thanks for the report!

I did try this, but I'm unsure about the results. My hair just seems to be in poor condition and no matter what I do it doesn't look very well. I'll have to try this method again when my hair recovers. I think dyeing it too much has dried it out.

I always dry my hair a bit before using Re:coil--like three floursack towels worth with Denham brushing between switching towels, so that I get most of the "wet" out. Then I use the leave-in and Re:coil. Some of my best curl days and longest-lasting (I think I once went to 5th day hair looking good) was with Re:coil. My only quibble is I find it drying....so I don't use it all the time. I save it up for, "Okay, I gotta have good curls today"days.

I may try this. I've not had much luck with Recoil. I've used it with gel on top. It just seems that no matter how little I use, my hair feels producty. Maybe it will work better by itself.
