                      I have tried every curly hair product out there - this by far is the best I've ever used. I highly recommend this product especially if your curls need a little boost to make them more curly. It's easy to use and doesn't leave any white residue in your hair. I use it with a diffuser to get lots of volume and to avoid the "crispy" look. Great product!

                          I have fine, permed hair past my shoulders. I like 80s hair look (lol). I love the mousse gel, is this a firmer hold than that? Also: can I use this to define my curls and then mousse gel to amp up the volume?

                            To amp up the volume of your fine curls, we would recommend Curl Trigger Curl Defining Spray on damp hair, then use the Mousse Gel over top and diffuse for full defined 80s hair. :-) If you air dry Mousse Gel it will be a crisper firmer hold, than if you diffuse.

                            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 has medium hold, so it can certainly be used on its own without additional styling gel. Used alone, it helps to define curls and reduce frizz as well as to condition the 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
