Good product but not for me..

By Maddi

from Sarasota

Comments about AG Hair Curl Re:Coil Curl Activator:

I give this product 3 stars because it does work, however it doesn't work for me and how I like my hair. I prefer thick, full curls and this product give me very straggly and thin curls, and it leaves my hair pretty crunchy with a lot of residue left over. I gave this to a friend who uses and moose and gel to scrunch her hair when she styles and she loves this because she loves those types of curls.. I personally just don't prefer that look on myself

      Comments about AG Hair Curl Re:Coil Curl Activator:

      I have wavy, barely curly hair that is long (mid-back length). I like to air dry my hair. This product leaves it crunchy, but when dry if I scrunch it a little the crunch goes away mostly. So, it's not entirely what I want - no one wants crunchy curls - but it is strong hold and can handle being...well...handled. It is sticky when applying to my hair. Day 2 there's tons of frizz. It's OK but not great. I'm on the lookout for a better product.

            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.

            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.

                A:

                Curl Trigger sounds like it will be a better fit for your fine hair type. This lightweight curl defining spray encourages curls and texture. Plus, it is alcohol-free, so it won’t dry out your hair. Spray into damp hair. Scrunch or diffuse for more curl definition. Can be used on dry hair as a next-day refresher.

                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.

                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.
