will be trying ReCoil for the first time-any tips?
I finally found ReCoil at a salon near my sister's house. I'm going to try it out tomorrow.
I've done a search, and most posts say to use it on very wet hair, emulsify with your hands, and use a small amount. Any other advice, please?
Should I use some gel over it? I"ve actually been having good luck wtih LA Looks Blue Sport Gel. I also have Jessicurl's RR and CCSS.
I usually scrunch with a microfiber towel, diffuse dry for about seven minutes and let my hair dry naturally the rest of the way. I tried plopping, but it makes my hair a big, undefined frizzball!
To use re:coil I would say the following things:
1: only use a small amount. I use about a nickel sized about for my hair that is about 4 inches below my shoulders.
2: Emulsify between your hands really well before applying (I smooth over my hair and then scrunch, I don't rake it in) (BTW, I just read your post again and saw that you already knew these two things, Sorry!)
3: As for over top, I use mousse, but you can use a gel, I find that re:coil does not have the hold I need, so I definitely need somehing over it!
I actually use a gel first, then distribute the recoil just to the bottom half of my hair (I put it in with my head upside down). If I use to near my roots, the top part of my hair gets weighed down really bad.
I have also used it mixed with gel in my hands, then distribute. This has worked as well :)
And as everyone says, just use a SMALL amount .
Thanks for the advice, I appreciate it.
I think I used too much-I ended up with too much crunch that wouldn't scrunch out easily. I may try it again tomorrow. The curl definition looked great for about an hour, then my hair had that "wet, too much product look" after that.
