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

    I love using this produce to revive my curls on non-wash days. I have 3a-3b curls. I dampen my hair with a spray bottle and add a quarter size amount. Rub in my hands and scrunch.

    I searched for 25 years for a product that could hold, yet not dry it out. My curly hair specialist introduced me to AG and I'm forever grateful!!!

      • 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!

        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

            • 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.

              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 [$].
