Default Re:coil - 1st time user!

Hi All!

Beckysma was great enough to sell me some re:coil and I've been having fun experimenting with it under gel and mousse. Does anyone ever use it alone without any other product? I'm asking because I don't really feel like have a big poof of hair at work all day tomorrow

Thanks in advance!

I use it under a mousse or a gel. Only use a small amount and be sure to rub it to coat your palms really well!!

I have never used it alone - always under a gel or mixed with a gel (to help get it through my hair more evenly). I probably use a pea size in my shoulder length fine hair.

I used it yesterday - just a drop, under Angel.
Great hair day.

I also like it under Boots.

Interesting, I guess pretty much everyone uses it under something else! Today is a moderately humid day in NYC and I was worried that I would be a frizz ball by the time I walked to work. So far just the re:coil is holding up pretty well!

I have about shoulder length hair and used two big pea-sized amounts - the 1st raked through, the 2nd scrunched in.

I use it by itself all of the time! I have fine hair 2A-3A. About a dime sized amount.

ETA: I live in a very humid climate.

Thanks Wiggilyhair! Good to know :-) I'm a 2/3a too so I'm glad I'm not alone

When I used it, I used it alone. It was my HG product for a good 6-9 months but eventually stopped working. It might have been the weather. I still have some so I will revisit when it gets colder again.
