Question Any 2's have experience with Eco Styler Gel?

In the 3c and above section I can read a lot about Eco Styler, but I was wondering if any 2's ever used this and which one was good/bad.

I thought it was terrible. It was very heavy and got that flash drying feeling on my hair. My hair did get very clumpy but the hold was not good!

Otoh there are several people on WHC who use and like it. I've not used it.

I have the clear (can't remember exact name), but haven't used it in awhile. Will try it again and let you know; I liked it in the past

The clear one is ecostyler krystal. I've only used the argan one though. I like it as more of a curl definer. If you dind it drying I would reccomend using fsg and then that. But then again its nothing a good leave in shouldn't fix.

I added EcoStyler Krystal to day three hair and it helped reform some of the looser spots; today I added more EcoStyler Krystal to day four hair to reclump the front sections. It's the first time I've had day four hair since going CG in January. Am going to pre-poo tonight with coconut oil and tomorrow morning will revisit the Krystal as my gel over KCCC

The morning of day one hair with EcoStyler Krystal was fabulous, but by the evening, my curls had begun to flag (from 3a to 2c) and looked more like day two hair. Day two today, I added some EcoStyler and it looks good. Will try for day three tomorrow

so how did day 3 go with the Ecostyler Krystal? still liking it?

I'm on the fence about trying it so the more comments and more details will help me decide if I should.

Day three was meh :-) I liked the EcoStyler better when I didn't use it on day one hair. Today is day four, so I am going to low poo, RO, LI, KCKT, KCCC, and a gel that is not EcoStyler, lol. The EcoStyler just didn't give me enough hold on day one to make day three look more than meh.

At first: Hello to all the Curly Girls.

I'm Dana from germany and i got Swavy-wavy (2b/2c) hair.

Like most curly girls i'm searching for the perfect styler and a few weeks agi i used to tried the olive oil eco styler. A totaly desaster for my hair.

My hair was very dry and after reading the INCI i understand why. EDTA..... Traumatic for my curls. So the search for my perfect styler goes on.

I like the Flaxseed Gel, because its natural, very very cheap, easy to make and my hair feels good.
