Has anyone tried RUSK radical creme?

I am cleaning out the graveyard and tossing (or getting ready to swap) a lot of stuff - mostly things with SLS/ALS and 'cones, since I've gone CG in the last month.

I came across an old (unopened, I think) tube of RUSK radical creme - I remember mixing this with the RUSK wired specifically to get a good clumping effect. Although, I don't really remember why I quit using it. :?: Anyhow, all the ingredients look CG-safe (unlike 95% of the other products in the graveyard) so I'm thinking of trying it again. Has anyone tried it with any luck?

    I haven't tried it yet, but, just to confirm, are these the right ingredients?

    water (aqua), vp/va copolymer, glycerin, cetyl alchohol, stearalkonium chloride, peg-12 distearate, stearyl alcohol, glyceryl stearate, glycol stearate, hydrolyzed wheat protein, peg-12 dimethicone, dicetyldimonium chloride, cetrimonium chloride, cetrimonium bromide, propylene glycol, peg-100 stearate, tetrasodium edta, dmdm hydantoin, methylparaben, propylparaben, fragrance (parfum) butylphenyl methylpropional, amyl cinnamal.

    If so, the glycerin and wheat proteni should be curl/clumping encouraging so I think it's certainly worth a try!

    Close...instead of the peg-12 dimethicone, it has dimethicone copolyol (in the same place), and it doesn't list the last two ingredients that you have listed. The tube is probably 5 years old, I think.

    I'm definitely going to give it a try...I just bought a new CO, though (NG asian pear & red tea) and I want to try it first to see what it does. I hate changing two things at once... :wink:
