    Comments about AG Hair Cosmetics Curl Recoil Curl Activator:

    First let me start off by saying that I have never written a product review. So, that should speak for itself. I always has stick straight hair, to the point of NEVER having to even blow dry my hair and it would be straight and zero frizz, ever. Well, I had my second child and one section on the underside of my hair went curly. Fast forward 12 years and the majority of the underside of my hair is pretty curly but yet easy to straighten at the same time. The top portion at the crown is straight but the use of a diffuser will bring about a decent wave kind of blending it all together. I have tried so many products and have been an aveda user for years. I still use the dry remedy shampoo and conditioner from aveda (the new version) and some sort of curl cream when wearing my hair curly. I was using aveda's curl cream from the be curly line but it weighs my hair down a good bit. This stuff, AG recoil does not! It is amazing! The first time I used this product (today) I used maybe two pumps (12oz bottle) and in my soaking wet hair ran it though with my fingers. I then combed it all through. I use a t shirt to scrunch and remove some excess water then diffuse. This recoil cream did leave hair crunchy but once it is fully dry (only diffuse hair till it is about 85% dry) I then scrunch the crunch out and wow!!! Wow!!! Wow!!! My hair everywhere is CURLY! Like the kind of curls I have longed for. Like Anne Hathaway in Love and Other Drugs!!!! My hair is about 3" past my shoulders and if it keeps up like this, I wil grow it long and never straighten it again! The body, movement, curl pattern and softness this product brings to fine, frizzy, wavy/curly hair is AMAZING!!! Best money I have spent hands down!

      I have very thick and very wavy hair that frizzes easily. I have used this on humid days and during the dry winters and my hair looks great.

        Comments about AG Hair Cosmetics Curl Recoil Curl Activator:

        This is my go-to product for my curly hair. It's easy to use and you don't need a lot for it to be effective. I only use two pumps and that works fine for my thick, past-shoulder-length hair. I also color my hair and this is perfectly gentle for color treated hair as well. Even works well in Florida summers.

          I mix a little of this with a little of another product. It allows my hair to air dry and responds well once dry if I need to use an iron to define some of the curls.

              Comments about AG Hair Cosmetics Curl Recoil Curl Activator:

              This product is amazing. It gives you well defined curls without being crunchy and even though it's expensive, you use such a small amount that it lasts forever. I only buy it about twice a year, if that. I use the AG fast food leave in conditioner and a dime sized amount of this crunched in my hair and my curls look great. It can be a heavy product if you use too much, which I have done before, so it may require a little experimenting to figure out how much to use. I've tried so many products to control frizz and define curls, and I dont think I will ever need to use anything else!

                I read about the product online and was curious. It does work well but it is a tad heavier than I expected and the smell is strong. If you do not mind the fragrance it is a good product.
