Holy grail for 2c/3a hair!!!

By Megan

About Me Brand Buyer

Verified Reviewer

Pros

  • Easy To Use
  • Effective
  • Good Value
  • Lightweight
  • Smells Great

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Daily Use

    Comments about AG Hair Curl Liquid Effects Extra-Firm Styling Lotion:

    I apply this over a moisturizing leave in and scrunch with a microfiber towel. I diffuse with my head upside down for 5 mins then add AG Recoil Curl Activator and scrunch that in with my MF towel. I then diffuse until my hair is 80-90% dry. This gel is probably the biggest kept secret in the wavy whirly world to help enhance waves and stubborn curls. I swear by it! It's an excellent layering gel for enhancement and hold!

      • Frizziness/Flyaways

      Comments about AG Hair Curl Liquid Effects Extra-Firm Styling Lotion:

      I use this over my Ouidad gel. This gives it a crunchier effect which I like because my curls last for several more days. This also gives a great shine to the hair. Probably a great gel alone for hair not as curly as mine.

        Comments about AG Hair Curl Liquid Effects Extra-Firm Styling Lotion:

        I have long, curly, thick, medium coarse hair. I put some in my hair right after I towel dry it. Run my fingers or a wide tooth comb throught my hair and don't touch the rest of the day. Strong hold for curls, minimizes frizz and volume. Most effective product I have every used! Only bad thing is it seems hard to find at times.

        This one works, but is for the wet look

          Best Uses

          • Thinner Hair

          Comments about AG Hair Curl Liquid Effects Extra-Firm Styling Lotion:

          Liquid Effects definitely holds curl. I have fine, thin, blond hair that needs help to hold the curl. This works, but keeps the 'wet look'. I also tried the mousse and found that to work great mixed with the Curl Trigger. This gives great hold, controls frizz in the worst of humidity and doesn't weigh my hair down at all. Their web site now makes it easy to choose which products to try. I love AG!

          Easy to use. I worked it into my hair while it was damp and it helped turn my random waves into nice soft curls.

          Cons

          • Didn't help with frizz

          • expensive
          • Made hair stringy
          • No hold
          • Strong Odor

          Best Uses

            Comments about AG Hair Curl Liquid Effects Extra-Firm Styling Lotion:

            It didn't necessarily do anything bad to my hair, but I found it did nothing. It had no hold at all, didn't clump my curls, didn't help with frizz, and it didn't really enhance my curls. It maybe added a little bit of bounce? Made it stringy too. Honestly, it felt like I might as well have not put anything on my hair. Plus, the fragrance gave me a headache. It didn't dry out my hair, though, and it wasn't crunchy, but it definitely was not worth the [$].

                    i usually squeeze a little into my palm and add a few drops of water from the faucet. then, i scrunch it into my wet hair (usually upside down). let it air dry if you can until almost dry, then hit it with a diffuser to finish it off.

                    this is the only product i've used on my hair for over 10 years!
