                I had to use another product when this was out of stock and I was not happy and neither was my thick mass of curly hair.

                Now that this is back in my daily routine my hair is happy once again.

                I have fine wavy hair. This product unfortunately did not work for me. It did not 'encourage' my curl...or wave!

                Comments about AG Hair Curl Re:Coil Curl Activator:

                I have fine wavy/curly combo hair, and I bought this to try and encourage some of the wavy bits to curl more. However, while it does curl and define well, I don't think it curls any better than AG's Beach Bomb, and I think this product weighs my fine hair down more. Beach Bomb is more texturizing. Plus, I don't like the scent of this product - it has a fake cherry smell (although the smell does go away once it's dry). Beach Bomb smells amazing.

                    I held off on reviewing this because I wanted to see if it would continue to work over time and it does. I have wavy hair that can range from limp to perfectly wavy to frizzy depending on what day it is. I use this when I want to guarantee a good hair day with awesome beachy waves/curls. It's a little pricey for my taste, but a little goes a long way. It might take you awhile to get the hang of the amount. I recommend starting with just a nickle sized dollop or two, and then increasing as needed. Also, this product gives me the best second/third day hair of any product I've used. Just spritz water on, scruch, and go!

                      I use this product at least twice a week for a wash and go look. It really tames my frizz and defines my thick, wavy hair. I also use this product on my 7 year old's tight curls daily, and gives her manageable and defined curls. This product smells really great and is not sticky like most gels or curl creams. The only complaint I have is that it doesn't come in a bigger bottle...lol.

                            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 doesn't interfere. AG Hair states that they receive many compliments on their mild fragrances, especially from people who are sensitive. We hope this info helps!

                            You should see immediate results! Please note that this is a styling product, and not a treatment product, so its effects are temporary and will last until you shampoo the product out of your hair.

                            This product is sulfate- and paraben-free and will work wonderfully to enhance your curls and waves. Recoil Curl Activator is made with AG’s unique Curl Creating Complex (C3), which contains the following key ingredients:

                            Magnesium sulfate – helps shrink the bonds in the hair, cultivating and defining each individual curl and wave. It gently supports curls without being crunchy and helps give hair a silky, soft feel with lots of movement

                            Bio-fermented tomato fruit extract – shrinks the hair cuticle and encourages curl

                            Rice Amino acids – hydrate and improve hair strength, promote curl, and help fight frizz.

                            Silk and keratin protein – adds moisture, strength, elasticity and shine

                            P-14 copolymer – gives long-lasting curl definition and flexible hold

                            NaPCA – a highly effective moisturizer

                            Herbal extracts – soothe the scalp and add shine to hair
