I've searched the forums and can't find a thread solely about this product (though I have read product reviews)...

Can anyone who uses this regularly tell me how you use it? Under your gel/styler or by itself? I was really loving TIGI Curls Rock Amplifier but the Cyclosiloxane dried the heck out of my hair so I'm back to my KCCC. I loved the way my curls popped with the Amp, does Re:Coil do this? I have read a lot of great reviews, just wanted some advice.

    It was my HG back in the day. I still have some so thnx for the reminder. I used it as my only product, in place of styler & gel & leave in. (I would have a tiny amt of RO left in.) Then scrunch & diffuse. Great results.

    I can use it on its own in ideal dews, but I have a fairly strong curl pattern. In high dews, I've used it under a gel or mousse. Recently, with super high dews and humidity, I haven't used it at all, due to the glycerin. I'll pull it out again when dews are below 60F.

    I use two pea-sized amounts on wet hair. I smooth it through, scrunch, and plop.

    After plopping for a few minutes, I scrunch in my gel/gels and diffuse dry. I haven't tried using it on its own yet, but I don't feel like it would work well since my hair frizzes out in any dew point without gel.

    I recently bit the bullet and ordered this from the US at some expense. I've only used a small amount under CJ CIAB or curl keeper, followed by living proof curl styling cream. Not sure it made any difference, I might try using more instead of adding cream and see if it works on its own as a styler.

    I just found an old bottle of this and tried it twice. I use it in place of KCCC, using it under a gel right now because of the humidity. I actually found it pumped up my curls a bit, which was a nice surprise. I am going to keep trying it to see how it goes.

    I bought this a couple weeks ago because it was on sale and I haven't used it that much due to traveling & being lazy. I used it as a leave-in/curl cream, put gel in, then plopped & diffused. I don't think it will work for me just on it's own, but I still have to experiment with it. I got some nice curls with it, interested to see it how it works on a more regular basis.

    I also used to use Curls Rock Amplifier (before starting CG) and loved how it made my curls/waves pop.

    I use under gel. If your hair is prone to dryness, the magnesium sulfate (the ingredient that is used for curl enhancement), could be problematic with regular use.

    These responses are great, thank you!! I guess I'll start by trying it alone but will likely have to use my KCCC over it. I'm hoping it does well for me, I have heard SO many good things.
