I just dredged up this old thread after doing a search to see if anyone else has tried the combination of LOOB and Eco Styler Krystal (Is this the only product on these forums without an acronym???)
I bought the Eco Styler last month and had tried it a couple of times with poor results. I think it was probably over FSG, but I can't remember for sure. I just know it left my hair undefined and fluffy. So I shelved it.
Then the other day I bought some LOOB to try. My plan was to use it by itself the first time, but after I got it in my hair, I could sense it was going to need something more. LOOB has a sticky, goopy, glue-y consistency similar to the Eco Styler, so maybe that is why I thought of combining them... anyway, I grabbed the tub and scrunched some in over the LOOB.
The whole time it was drying I was thinking it was going to be a disaster... but it wasn't! To my surprise, I SOTC and it turned out amazing. I even got my best ever second day hair with it! I used the same combo again last night, slept on it crunchy, and had really good morning hair that just needed a shake to fluff.
My routine was:
Giovanni Direct leave in
Wrap hair in a loose towel while getting dried off.
Rake through LOOB, then scrunch all over (I like the scrunch-n-pump technique). Let that set up 1-2 minutes.
Scrunch in EcoStyler
Scrunch out water with a microfiber towel
Clip and air dry
SOTC when dry
So try LOOB with Eco Styler if you haven't already!
Curlykey - What was the result of your Eco spray gel experiment? I have been wanting to make a spray gel, but not sure which of my gels to try with it.
Axed the perpetual ponytail and went curly on 1/6/2011.
Hair Properties: 3a/b, fine-medium texture, thick density, normal porosity.
Still experimenting with products and routine.
So far, I like: FSG, GTTTT, V05 Conditioners, protein treatments, this towel.
