Angry Tigi Catwalk Curls Rock Amplifier

This made made my hair a sticky, lifeless, dry mess. I used the tiniest, tiniest amount since there were reviewers who had said it could leave hair sticky. I didn't even bother swapping it. Into the wastebasket.

The only good thing is that I am trying as much as possible to be cg and the bloody stuff has cones so I won't be tempted by it. Yuch!

AGREED. I have the old formulation of this, maybe that's why, but this stuff was horrible in my hair.( and that never happens, products never turn out bad in my normal porosity hair-generally everything works!) But this stuff just made my hair feel coated, greasy, limp, and dry...basically just an all around icky mess.
Wish I could have liked it though-I love curl creams and curl enhancers!

Funny, I love this stuff. I get slip from it like no other. I'm not bothered by the cyclomethicone. That is the only cone in my bottle. Mine doesn't say catwalk I don't think. It may be a different formulation? I donno but one pump into soaking wet hair usually gives me a pretty good hair day.

I know - a lot of people love it. Just proves the truth of the idea that all of our hair is different and reacts differently to a variety of products. I wasn't upset by the idea of the cone, by the way. I wish it had worked for me!

I love this! But have to use like half a pump and put water in my hands to kind of thin it out

I tried the old formula way pre-CG and wasn't impressed, but the new formula is HG for me. The only cones are cyclo-cones, which evaporate off of the hair during the drying process.
