Default Re:Coil - My New HG!

I took the plunge and purchased re: coil after convincing myself that the older I get, the less curly my hair becomes. Re: Coil proved that theory wrong! I have been using it for a week now and have had the best curl formation! I have been using about a nickel sized glob of it, emulsifying it in my hands and distributing it through my hair. I then use about the same size glob of BRHG. The combo seems to be working well with one exception. I have a case of canopy frizz, which I haven't in the past. When I would frizz, it would be all over big hair and poor curl formation if that makes any sense. Any recommendations for a product to use with the combo that would kill the frizz? Thanks!

When I first tried re:coil I didn't like it. After a week of using it and getting the amount to apply figured out, I really love it. I use mine over a leave-in conditioner applied to out of the shower wet hair followed by Joiwhip mousse. I'm getting great results.

Re:coil is one of my HGs too! I use it under joiwhip and sometimes Ck. Its just gives my curls that extra boost that they need. ~~jax

I get canopy frizz from curl enhancing things during the humid season like magnesium and aloe. Salt is the one in recoil. If I use it with a strong gel and make sure I get enough on the top hair that usually does the trick.
However I see you use BRHG so maybe you might need to pair it with Curl Keeper. I cant' even get frizz if I wanted to with that stuff.
Low porosity, medium texture.

If it smells good put it in your hair, if it tastes good spit it out!

Yep, I've come to love this product, too. I love it with G&F Curl and Shine leave in, the recoil, then either gel or Joiwhip. I'm so glad I found this stuff!

That's a great combo! It works for me too. I also like combining it with B&A and today I tried it with AnGell.
The frizz is just in the canopy area? Hmmm Are you applying enough products there?
Once I forgot the canopy and it didn't look defined. How about gel in a spray bottle? LM has a recipe in her book (The Curly Girl) It's very simple.
Just a thought.

I've been mixing a quarter sized puddle of CK w/ a pea sized blob of Re:coil in my palm, then follow with a strong hold gel (BRHG is my HG for the summer).

For my hair, the trick to both CK & Re:coil is combing it through with a wide tooth comb, then scrunching it before adding my gel.
Discovered nc.com in 09/2003

2b~~fine texture~~normal porosity (except for highlights, which are high)~~normal elasticity~~medium density

Shampoo: Still use sulfates, but only on roots
Rinse out: Deva One C, JC Too Shea, Original Sprouts Deep Conditioner
Curl Enhancers: KCCC; JC Rocking Ringlets, JC Spiralicious, & Confident Coils
Styler: BRHG (over any and all curl enhancers) - this is the one product that I never change - absolute HG!!
