AG Recoil

Like Tree5Likes

Does the AG Recoil have much hold? Can it be used without any gel. Also does it dry crunchy?

No crunch. I use always over a LI so it won't dry me up.

YOu won't know how it is on your hair until you try it. Lots of reviews here on CurlTalk and on CurlMart. It's a HG for many people and one of my fave curl enhancers, particularly for the summer. It really does quell my frizz on humid days and really gets my lazy curls to "coil". So, really, just send off for a sample (or whole tube) and see how it is on your hair before summer is over. Trust me, you wanna test this for hot/humid.

Below: First two pics: Re:coil without gel first time I tried it in April. April has curl-friendly weather (warm, some moisture, not summer-nuts moisture). Rest are three other uses of it with a medium hold gel from May through July. Diffused in all cases at least half-way dry. It's one of my more reliable "good hair" day products in this weather:

3b, fine textured,thin and normal to high porosity.
I don't use Re:Coil very often, but just gave it a try recently. I used MD curl cream as a LI, followed by Re:Coil and a small amount of Tigi's Head Shrink gel. It worked out great. I had lots of tight curls, volume and no frizz. The MD products were a great combination with the Re:Coil. I think they balance any dryness the Re:Coil causes.

2/c and some 3A. Modified CG.
Protein sensitive
Highly porous. Color over grey.
Best 1st day method: Super Soaker
Conditioners: Curl Junkie Beauticurls Strengthening Conditioner,
Deep condish: Curl Junkie Curl Rehab
Stylers: Experimenting with cones & sulfates while the dews are high.
Sometimes try roller sets - classic glamor but I prefer my curls.
Every day is a gift

I just ordered the AG Re:Coil and the AG Fast Food. I was planning on doing the FF, CK and then the Re:Coil and maybe add Ouidad CC on top if needed.... here goes nothing!!

I have curl keeper and Ag coil and get a ton of frizz. I think I'm ditching curl keeper but would need a LI. What LI work well with this (preferably a drugstore brand) and do I need a gel with it. I have fine 3b hair with high frizz!!!

Wouldn't hurt to try a gel...it just makes my hair so dry looking.

Has anyone combined Recoil with KCCC? I just tried Recoil yesterday over Giovanni Direct LI with decent results. I got some frizz and I obviously needed a gel over it. KCCC acts as a curl enhancer on my hair and Recoil did too. I'm just not sure if its too much.

I tried ReCoil mixed with SS FHG last night (over Giovanni Direct LI) and got awesome results. I just posted pictures of my second day hair in my flickr stream. I'm pretty happy with it. I think I'll try the ReCoil and KCCC combo tonight and see how it goes.
