    Woman, just buy yourself some KBB already. You know you're gonna do it anyway. The way you keep asking about it, you're not gonna rest till you do, so why delay the inevitable? Now you can stop denying the PJ and blame it on me egging you on. ;)

    I don't know about recoil, and I don't think it does it to that extent, but I find that my curls do perk up when I add some milk or nectar to dry hair.

    Kindawavy, I agree. My wet hair is straight. When I spray on the Braggs ACV or add the KBB hair milk rinse out, I see spirals. I just think my hair likes it--it's moisturizing. If I didn't use a curl enhancer, I wouldn't get nearly as much curl.

    so you think you get a lot of your curl from the enhancer that you use not kbb?

    I've used at least one KBB product per day since the first week of August. I sometimes use as many as three or four. My hair is really healthy and moisturized--therefore it curls better. I think my soap bars and curl enhancer make my hair curly on a day to day basis, not the KBB per say.

    ITA, km. Last winter I was using only KBB hair milk as rinse out and leave in - NO gel or curl cream or anything else. My hair was curling like crazy. I would rub in hair milk on my dry ends on 2nd & 3rd day hair and it would almost immediately start to spiral again. I think you need to take care of hair from the inside out; not the outside in. If you don't keep curly hair well moisturized, I think you can try all the creams & gels around and it won't make your hair much curlier.

    BTW, ReCoil made my hair like straw.

    When I have the right level of moisture in my hair, I get much better curl. Funny that this got brought up because Saturday I used the KBB Nectar as a leave-in and [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/AG-Recoil-p-24.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=ag-hair-cosmetics-recoil-curl-activator]re:coil[/buylink] as an activator. I had a lot of bouncy curls that lasted great even for 2nd day hair -- a lot curlier than normal. So, to answer your question, I think the KBB products give you the moisture needed for great, healthy curl formation, but no, I don't consider them "activating". I think the activators just give you a little more curl and a little more oomph than normal for some of us that need or want the extra boost. I also have to add that I'm much happier with my hair now when using the KBB Nectar even when I don't use an activator.

And I have KBB to try on the way, but the descriptions of KBB products seem more like products to take care of the health of your hair, not really a focus on styling (although lots of people use things not meant for styling to do just that).

    I can't really compare to Re-coil as I havent used it but I can say that KBB makes my daughters hair curlier :toothy10:
    I think Kbb has improved the and moisture of her hair so its curlier

    Before when I was using other conditioners and leave-ins her hair would be like straw and really knotty the day after it was co-washed so I would have to co-wash at least every other day

    Since using KBB Ive been able to go longer in between washes as her hair is really soft and this week Ive actually gone 7 days! I used [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Jessicurl-Hair-Cleansing-Cream-p-103.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=jessicurl-hair-cleansing-cream]JC HCC[/buylink] to poo followed by KBB hair milk as a rinse out and both milk and nectar as a leave in (thought I'd use both as an experiment)

    I don't use gels, curl creams or any other products and her hair is really curly soft and healthy so I'm happy

    Hope KBB works for your hair, please let us know the results :love3:

    You said it perfectly. That's exactly how I feel.
