Default Re:coil, RR, Confident Coils, and Angell - suggestions for use?

Ok, so I recently bought the above products, and I am looking for suggestions on how I can combine them to make them work! I realize I may not use all at the same time, but what are some ideas for how to make the most out of my new splurges?! Oh, and I have what I think is 3a, medium thickness, just above shoulder length hair.

Thanks for any tips!

Did you mean Confident Coils?

As for suggestions of use: RR is a curl enhancer, and so it confident coils, but CC has more of a hold to it (light/med hold). Jessicurl designed these products to be used together. You can find her tips on product use at www.jessicurl.com.

Recoil, RR, CC are curl enhancers and can be used by themselves when paired with a leave-in and a gel/mousse. Use the leave-in, then the curl enhancer, and top it off with the gel/mousse. Angell would be perfect over any of them.

HTH!

I'm going with re:coil under Angell. That should give you great ringlets with good hold. Can't say that I've used them together myself but I would as I do own them both...now I have to try it

Oops, yes, I meant Confident Coils! I did the whole RR, CC, routine as shown on the jessicurl website a few days ago, and really liked the results. But, I am quickly turning into a pj, so I want to keep experimenting with other products before settling! Last night I tried Re:coil with Angell, and I got tighter ringlets (esp in the front) than with the Jessicurl products. I think I like both looks, but I still want to fool around with them all! I did notice a bit too much crunch last night though - do you think the crunch comes from too much curl enhancer or the Angell? I was able to eventually scrunch it out, but imo it was still too much. Maybe I just overused both products? Who knows, all this trial and error is enough to drive a girl crazy! Oh, I also just swapped for some KCCC - what should I pair that up with? Thanks for your responses!

If you are getting some KCCC then do KCCC/Re:coil. It gives awesome ringlets and the perfect hold...for me at least. The too much crunch could definitely be from using too much of either product as they both have hold. Try less next time or try mixing them together. I love the experimenting part though

I use KCCC with ArcAngell and I get a good, tight hold, so KCCC with regular Angell would probably be fine.

The Jessicurl products didn't work out for me. They didn't give me the spiraly kind of curls I like, plus I turned out to be Mag Sulfate sensitive, so they really dried me out. But see how they work for you, it's still a really good brand.

So should I put the re:coil in first to soaking wet hair, then the KCCC also into soaking hair? Or should I microfiber towel scrunch btwn the two? What do u do Jess? Also, what is Agave Nectra and how do u use it? I've seen it mentioned by a few peeps now!

I scrunched out a little water after my LI and then applied KCCC then Re:coil, nothing else. My hair seems to like KCCC before any stylers better. I'm a wavy and it gives me ringlets. There are pictures in my fotki under KCCC experiment if you wanna see. They are the ones from 3/30. My hair only looks frizzy because my camera hates me and will never focus on my hair. It wasn't frizzy as far as my hair goes.

Agave nectar is a sweetener like honey and can be used in the same way. Some add it to their condish, some to their leave-in or FSG. Lately I have been doing an agave rinse and I've been getting wonderful, clumpy hair.
