AG Hair Cosmetics Details Defining Cream

Apr 11, 2014 - I bought this product after I originally went to the salon to purchase Re:Coil. I got a bit confused when I got there, not entirely sure what the difference between the activating Re:Coil cream was and the defining Details cream was. The employee kindly explained that she thought that since I already had curls, this product would be better as it would provide more hold and definition than the Re:Coil, since that was more for people with say, waves to give them curls. So I purchased this. Should have gone with my original plan, I think. This product has a few pros, such as it DID give decent hold (though I combined with a gel so it could be the gel), and the curls were actually pretty shiny. However, they did not feel soft,I had quite a few fly-aways after a couple of hours, and immediately I could feel the build up in my hair, despite using a modest amount. And that's not mentioning the TERRIBLE smell. I'm not sure what they were trying to go for, but it was the most awful product smell I've tried to date and that alone is deterring me from using it again; I'm going to exchange it at the salon and try the Re:Coil instead.

Herbal Essences Totally Twisted Curl Scrunching Gel

Apr 01, 2014 - I use this gel with the Totally Twisted mousse for my styling and it works pretty well. It can cause a bit of flaking and it's definitely not going to do anything for you on its own, but for me it works wonderfully for taming some flyaways and I use it on my baby hairs for my updos all the time! And like all Herbal Essences products it smells lovely.

Herbal Essences Totally Twisted Curl Boosting Mousse

Apr 01, 2014 - So far this is my best go-to styling product. I've been using it for about 3 or 4 years now and out of the products I use for my curls this one is the best. It's by no means perfect; I find I still have flyaways and like all mousses it doesn't make my hair FEEL the best, but it gives me the best curl definition and frizz control than any other product. I've started combining this with a bit of gel and so far it's a bit better than it is on its own. Still trying to find a product that gives me softness and curl definition together though.
