                This stuff is really awesome. I have 2A wavy hair and if I don't do anything to it at all, my hair is this half wavy/half straight frizzy mess and it poofs out. I started using this product to see if I could encourage my waves to be more defined and my gosh, this stuff is awesome! I get out of the shower, apply a leave in conditioner followed by AG recoil while my hair is still very wet, I wrap my hair up in a shirt to dry and wow! Comes out looking amazing with the waves incredibly defined! **Warning** I do not recommend putting this product on your hair if it is slightly damp or beginning to dry because your hair will get that sticky, crunchy feeling and the product does not do its job (I learned the hard way). Only put it on when your hair is close to dripping wet! A must for anyone with wavy or curly hair.

                    If you have natural curly hair....you should give this a try. I use it daily to maintain soft curls and reduce frizz. One of my favorite things about this product is my curls look and feel soft instead of the all day "wet look"
                    Ulta no longer carries (at least in my area or online) AG Details. I use the two together and they work magic!

                      I have weird hair to say the least. If I brush it while wet and let it air dry, it dries straight. If I let it sit while wet without brushing and dry it twisted in a towel, I can make it dry super curly. I wanted to take my curls to the next level with a product and came across this on a buzzfeed article. This really does activate my curls! It makes them tighter, neater, and less frizzy. I am very happy with the effect this has on my hair. I will be buying again!

                        What's the difference between this and the AG Curl Beach Bomb? I have wavy hair that has been losing it's wave over the past couple of years; which product will work better in bringing them back and holding my waves?

                          Both products are great for promoting your hair's natural curls and waves. Beach Bomb is perfect for creating unfussed, beachy waves, full of body and texture. Re:Coil curl activator will help define and cultivate curls, while fighting frizz and locking in moisture, plus it will offer a slightly firmer hold.

                          Re:Coil Curl Activator is a lightweight formulation that is designed to coax and define curls and waves without leaving hair crunchy, heavy or stiff (Curl Factor 3/5). If you would like a product that offers more hold, try AG's Liquid Effects Extra Firm Styling Lotion, specifically designed to control frizzy, thick or coarse curls for long-lasting hold and humidity resistance.

                          The fragrance is Satsumi, which is like a sweet orange. All AG Hair fragrances are mild, and they actually dissipate in the hair, so if you wear a fragrance (perfume), it does not interfere.

                          AG's Re:Coil Curl Activator is formulated with our Curl Creating Complex (C3), which will encourage any kinks you have in your straight hair, but will not thicken or create curls.

                          If you'd like to create a curly look, scrunch Re:Coil Curl Activator in clean, damp hair and air dry or use a diffuser. Once dry, use a flat iron or curly wand to create curls and finish with AG's Aerodynamics hairspray to hold your style without weighing down your fine hair.

                          I also recommend using AG's Thikk Wash and Thikk Rinse, and Root Thikkening Serum from our Volume line to create and maintain the optimal environment for healthy hair growth, and to give the appearance of thicker, fuller hair.

                          AG's Re:Coil Curl Activator is formulated with our Curl Creating Complex (C3), which will encourage any kinks you have in your straight hair, but will not thicken or create curls.

                          If you'd like to create a curly look, scrunch Re:Coil Curl Activator in clean, damp hair and air dry or use a diffuser. Once dry, use a flat iron or curly wand to create curls and finish with AG's Aerodynamics hairspray to hold your style without weighing down your fine hair.

                          I also recommend using AG's Thikk Wash and Thikk Rinse, and Root Thikkening Serum from our Volume line to create and maintain the optimal environment for healthy hair growth, and to give the appearance of thicker, fuller hair.

                        My hair is baby fine, and I have everything from crazy curly (underneath) to stick straight (the top layer) on my head. I would like a product that would coax the curl out of the straighter areas. Would this product be appropriate? If not, is there anything you might recommend?

                          Yes, Re:Coil Curl Activator is your best choice is coaxing the curls in your straight hair. Re:Coil Curl Activator is formulated with AG's Curl Creating Complex (C3) to help encourage and hydrate your curls, leaving them with a frizz-free finish. I would also recommend using the Re:Coil sulfate-free curl care shampoo and Re:Coil Curl Conditioner to help bring out those curls.
