    Comments about AG Hair Curl Re:Coil Curl Activator:

    The product certainly holds curls. It does exactly what it says - recoils. It keeps the curls tight. The only thing that I wasn't crazy about is that it has a "wet" look. If that's your thing, you'll love this product.

    Comments about AG Hair Curl Re:Coil Curl Activator:

    My hair dresser recommended this product and I absolutely love it! I have thick curly hair that is hard to contain. Often times with other products my hair will become frizzy after a few hours but AG will hold the curls for 2 two days and remain soft. It's not heavy and smells like vanilla. I'm not one to spend a lot of money on hair products so I wish it was a bit cheaper but I feel this brand is worth it.

      Comments about AG Hair Curl Re:Coil Curl Activator:

      I was recommended this product because the manager says THIS is the product to use, I also bought the matching spray for next day curls. However the product is very sticky and crunchy and my curls did fall half way through the day. The spray did the same thing the next morning and it left my hair feeling stiff and have a sticky residue on my hands if I tried to run my hands through it. Still on the look out for something.

      Comments about AG Hair Curl Re:Coil Curl Activator:

      This stuff would be good for curly girls on high humidity days. It does do well at controlling the frizz, but is a little sticky and something in it made my eyes react with a burning sensation. I prefer just using their leave in conditioner, Fast Food, but will save this for special occasions/high humidity stretches.

        this is one of the best curling products I've ever used. I have tried so many products and this one has won.

            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?

            • Brand Expert

              A:

              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.

              A:

              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.

            What is the fragrance of this product?

            • Brand Expert

              A:

              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.

            I'm looking for a product that tames my frizz when I air dry. I have naturally straight hair with some loose waves that looks terribly frizzy when I air dry. Is this product good for that and are there any better products that you recommend? Thank you.

              Recoil works for all types of curls, from soft waves to corkscrew curls! It enhances and defines your natural curl/wave pattern and provides medium hold. Another product that works well for airdrying is Fast Food Leave On Conditioner. It is moisturizing, lightweight and tames frizz.

            Will this product make my fine, straight hair curly?

            1 answer

            • Brand Expert

              A:

              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.
