Great combinations with AG Re:coil?

I just got some Re:coil in the mail from another curly, and I was just wondering what product combinations/techniques work really well with this product? I know many people get great results with this product, so I thought I'd get advice before I try it out tonight. I have 2b fine hair, normal elasticity, normal porosity, no product sensitivities, in case that makes a difference.

    I've had great results with every combination I've tried so far- CJPP, Biotera gel, DC ArcAngel... I haven't found a combination I didn't like.

    When do you put it in? When your hair is soaking wet or damp?

    I always apply to nearly sopping wet hair, but I've never been able to apply product to damp hair.

    I seriously adore this stuff, never had a problem with any gel, but I like Biotera gel with it the best. HETT gel works well too.

    I love re:coil too. I do:

    Very very wet hair, distribute re:coil and comb through all upside down, scrunch and pump a little to distribute further and start to "activate"

    Scrunch in ArcAngel, squish it around awhile to distribute then squeeze out the water by scrunching, then scrunch further with a tshirt

    Then plop in that wet tshirt briefly while getting dressed

    Med-Coarse, LowPorosity, NormalElast (LCLF)

    Shoulder-Length now.

    Wash: DevaCare Low Poo
    Detangle & Rinseout: Walgreens or Sally's Conditioning Balm (always)
    Leave-in: DevaCare OneC (budget choice is GFTN)
    Style: ReCoil & DevaCare Arc Angel (budget choices are HESMU or Got2BSpikedUp)

    So I just tried it last night, used it over FSG and under BRHG and had really good results :) can't wait to try other combinations.

    So funny this was posted, I just found an amazing combo with re:coil and I am so happy! I've always loved re:coil, but I put it aside for a while to try to find other products to rotate it with. My hair has been pretty lifeless this winter no matter what I try, but I found a simple combo that actually gives me soft, bouncy, defined waves/curls! I took some blurry pics that are on my link. Good ol' re:coil, it will always be a staple product :) Combo:

    -Squeeze excess water out of hair with a few drop of coconut oil, throw hair up in a t-shirt while getting dressed.
    - About a nickel size of re:coil distributed throughout damp hair (I do spray a few time with a water bottle after taking my hair out of the t-shirt)
    -Scrunch in a tiny of amount of Spiral Solutions FHG. Once hair is styled I blot my hair with the t-shirt.
    - Diffuse for a few minutes after giving as much air drying time as possible. For me this about 2 hours later but on work days it ends up being about 35 min after styling.

    Great results with this! It seems similar to Robin-in-FL's routine.
    2's+3a/ med density/ normal-high porosity/ fine-med texture, normal elasticity (I think!):

    This is slightly off topic, but what does coconut oil do? I'm not sure if my hair could handle it, but I'm curious.
