This stuff is a hit or miss, but I always miss. I combine it with eden bodyworks curl defining creme and brush it with a boar bristle brush, and I 'm left with hard hair that gets tremendous product buildup. The same for braidouts and twistouts, even when I try to scrunch it out, I'm left with product buildup in the form of flaking, LOTS of flaking. I've given up on this gel, but my moms' hair that is 4b loves it.
I really do like this gel! It's one of my staples. The smell is sort of perfume-ish and the consistency is a typical, gel-like consistency. It Is sticky and leaves back a good bit of crunch. If you do use this gel to style, I suggest doing a twist out, that way, you don't have to scrunch out the crunch. It comes right out when you unravel the twists.
I have 3b/c type hair and I love this gel! I am very heavy handed, and priced at $5 for a 32 oz is perfect. I like the smell and consistency. It does leave my hair a little crunch sometimes, but I can easily smooth it out. It leaves my curls well defined and completely frizz free. It clumps very well too. It is really important that a leave in be used underneath this, as it will leave your hair looking dry. I does flake after a few days.
I love eco styler gels in general! And this is a great one! Scrunched out well it leaves the hair shiny and bouncy!
My Holy Grail Styler!! I like the smell of this gel way better than the argan oil eco styler. This gel gives me up to 3 days of curls before I have to wash it again. No flakes and no excessive build up either. This stuff is great. I always apply the ecostyler gels with giovanni direct leave in and wet hands. It works perfectly to control frizz.

I use this gel once a week when I twist my hair after washing. It keeps my hair from shrinking too much during the week which helps prevent matting and tangles. Even if my hair gets a little 'fluffy' (not the good kind), I just spray a little water on the section and rake some of the gel on it and wapow! curls tamed. The only problem I have with it is that, when mixed with certain leave-in conditioners, it WILL clump on you and you'll have to wash your hair all over again.
I purchased the smallest container of this gel from my local beauty supply store because of all of the wonderful reviews that I heard about its ability to define various textures of curls and coils. I used some to define my hair on top of my favorite leave-in and some olive oil for a wash and go, and I'm very pleased with the shine and bounce that it gave my short 3c/4a/4b hair. My only gripe with it is the fact that my hair is kinda crunchy, but I think that this can be remedied with a little more olive oil. I'll definitely be repurchasing. UPDATE: I've perfected my wash and go using this product by not only adding a leave-in and oil underneath, but also a thick moisturizer/styler. It's been working out so well that I recently purchased the second-largest container of this gel.
I love this gel. It is sort of sticky and if you're not used to using gels, it may seem scary at first, but it dries so soft if you don't use too much. I get the best results from this when I section my hair first and apply it. The smell is so neutral I love it. It works amazing to combat frizz.
This product is my holy grail for wash and go's, it can keep my hair frizz free for about 3 days. However if you put to much it will be to crunchy and/or flake. To combat this problem I break the gel casting (what makes your hair feel crunchy) by applying a NON-sealant oil, eg. olive oil. It doesn't leave a white film when used with a creamy styler, smell greats and aids curl definition. Love this product.
This product does help keep away frizz. Because it gives so much hold i will put a quarter sized amount at the top and a dime size at the bottom since the top of my hair always poofs up. If you use too much of this product your hair will get crunch and flake.
Keeps my curls defined and frizz free for wash day and day 2. I have to reapply it after spritzing my hair with water on subsequent days. While I like soft curls, I'd give this 5 stars if the hold was kept up for more than 2 days (without having to refresh curls with water). I also noticed some flaking which may be inevitable when you use as much gel as I do. Overall, if my #1 gel wasn't available - I'd use this as a back-up.
I don't know if my hair has outgrown gel, I used to use the Arran oil one. I tried this one and I really don't like it!! It's not moisturising it kills my hair! I don't like the smell of it and like all Eco gels it is misleading. It has olive oil way down on the ingredient list! I am NEVER buying this gel AGAIN
Amazing!!! This was the first Eco Styler Gel Ive ever used... And I dont regret it!! It provides amazing hold and keeps out the frizzies, it also defines my 3b/3c hair and does not leave it with flakes and residue. Plus, its CG friendly
I've had this jug for the past year & never tried it for anything other than slicking my hair back. Over this past weekend I used my leave in(TN), put a little oil mix on that & topped it off with this gel & got BEAUTIFUL, defined, soft, moisture retained curls! 4 days later I'm still rocking my wash & go. I was stopped in the store & asked what I used & the individual thought I had done a rod set! Why did I wait so long to use my gel for something more?! SMH! All the money I could've saved myself.
This defines my curls, but makes them HARD. I gave away the giant tub I bought because it was just too hard and took to long to dry.
