I also had the same experience with recoil...the first use my hair was AMAZING...every time after...a total diaster.... I now have found a new love...I think my first HG product...
NEVER would have thought it so...bought it on a whim...the deva volumizing foam...it give me volume on my crown and dose help with frizz....can also apply it to 2nd day dry hair to reactivate curl and volume and adds no weight....i used it in FL and just flew to NYC this week..worked wonderfuly there too....
