    I've used the CJ Deep Fix. It was good, but not awesome. I prefer the results I get with One n' Only Argan Hydrating Mask.

    I've also used AG Re:Coil, as well as the shampoo, conditioner, liquid gel and gel-mousse from their curl line. Re:Coil (the curl cream) and the Liquid Effects Gel are HG products for me. Shampoo and conditioner are ok (shampoo is CG-friendly, conditioner is not), and the gel-mousse didn't impress me at all (I only use it on days when I'm more concerned about my hair drying quickly than about how it looks). I've also used their Fast Food leave-in (not part of the curl collection) and absolutely love it (not CG-friendly, but still quite awesome and smells like raspberry jello).

    In case you can't see signatures (mobile app, etc) my hair is fine in texture, but thick in density, with normal porosity and elasticity. If your properties are significantly different, you won't necessarily get similar results to mine.

    Good question. I'm also wondering about the CJ Deep Fix. I was thinking about buying it because I just LOVE the smell of banana products.

    I've tried both! CJ deep fix is really nice, but I like rehab better. However, it smells soooo yummy. I need to play around with it more, and leave it in longer and see what happens, but it's good. Recoil is ehh, has too much hold for me, but that's a personal preference. I could see it being great if you scrunch a lot and diffuse, bit on me it actually pulled out the curls and just looked odd. It also dried a little crunchy, but once I scrunched out the scrunch it was super soft. It smelled very nice also. I might repurchase the deep fix, I don't think I'd repurchase recoil.

    Thank you, I'll have to try the deep fix.
