AG RECOIL- new way for me

Ok so normally when I apply AG Recoil, I scrunch it in as soon as I get out of the shower. My hair is still pretty wet, then I plop and dry and have been generally happy with the results. BUT today, I was tired so I got out of the shower( and after my normal shampoo and condish) and I didn't apply it right away. I kind of just lounged around for about 10 minutes ( honestly I took a mini nap) then I scrunched it in. I could tell right away that my hair was ALOT drier, it was damp, not drippy wet. then I did my usual plop, then dried per normal & SOTC. Booyah! the curls I got were so amazing!!!! so happy with my hair. had to share. anyone else have similar results?
Hair: lots of fine 2c/3a
Length: Mid back
Shampoo:Shea moisture coconut hibiscus

    I've always used it while still in shower while hair is soaking, then scrunched in gel on top with good results. I haven't had any luck adding gel after my hair is drier so not sure i can do this.

    Hmm. This might be a good method to try when I'm in a hurry and use mousse, now that I think about it. I do use that on drier hair and it takes less time to diffuse. I need to try this. Thanks for the report!

    I did try this, but I'm unsure about the results. My hair just seems to be in poor condition and no matter what I do it doesn't look very well. I'll have to try this method again when my hair recovers. I think dyeing it too much has dried it out.

    I always dry my hair a bit before using Re:coil--like three floursack towels worth with Denham brushing between switching towels, so that I get most of the "wet" out. Then I use the leave-in and Re:coil. Some of my best curl days and longest-lasting (I think I once went to 5th day hair looking good) was with Re:coil. My only quibble is I find it drying....so I don't use it all the time. I save it up for, "Okay, I gotta have good curls today"days.

    I may try this. I've not had much luck with Recoil. I've used it with gel on top. It just seems that no matter how little I use, my hair feels producty. Maybe it will work better by itself.
