Like most people with curly hair, I've found that--unlike what people with straight hair think--we have to work to try to get that magazine-look. How many times has someone come up to you and said, "your hair looks really good today; you should wear it like that all the time." And you're thinking, "I DO wear it like this all the time--just sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't!"
I have really fine, no body, dry hair that has various textures all over--some really curly but fuzzy, some with almost no curl. And all I want is defined, consistant curls with body, without any crunchy or sticky feeling. Re:coil is a great product to get there!
I had read a bunch of reviews and they were somewhat mixed, but I thought I'd give it a try. You need VERY little product, and you run it through your hair right after a shower when it's still sopping wet. Then I put it in one of those absorbant towels for a few minutes and then shake my head upside down and let my hair air dry. When it's dry then I mess with it a little (scrunch upside down). Voila! Perfect ringlets! Everyone's been noticing, and the best part is that I actually have been spending a lot less time on my hair (with fewer products and better results) than ever.
I hate some Amazon reviews when it's clear that the reviewer just bought the product but hasn't started to actually use it yet--so I waited for 2 weeks before posting this. It is worth the money.
One caveat--I don't think this prodcut gives much if any hold, so if you need that (my hair's fine enough that it just sets--also it's really dry where I live) you might need to follow this with something light. On a few days I've put a tiny amount of John Masters Shine On on the ends of my hair for extra definition.
