Hello, I have a question for anyone with experience with devacurl angel. I used to use re:coil and would get the best 2nd and 3rd day hair. but i've started to use devacurl angel, and by day 2 my hair seems to frizz and flop. does anyone have any suggestions on how to make angel have more hold on the second day, as re:coil did? would combining the two work?

thanks, i'm new to this so i hope i posted in the right place! :sunny:

i have type 3a hair that i do not want to have to wash every day!

    If i were you i would try layering recoil, then angel on top of that for hold or vice versa. I love recoil, it really perks up my hair. I layer recoil under all of my gels if I feel like i need a little bit of a pick me up for my curls. I have also had really good luck with layering it on top of my gels. I normally get a crunch, but it scrunches out.
    Just curious, but why did you switch to angel?

    thanks for the reply! i'm going to try layering them. I've heard that non lathering shampoo is a lot healthier for your skin, so i got a trial of deva curl's nopoo and one condition and fell in love! I liked the angel included in the kit, specifically because it didnt give me a crunch like the recoil does. (although i think that is because i use too much recoil)

    When i use recoil, I use about a pea sized amount for each side of my hair, which gives me minimmal crunch if any. I don't know if you are trying the CG method, but the polyquats in recoil may give you build up if you are just using the Nopoo to clarify. I haven't had this problem, but I know some do.
