This sounds like a reaction between the two products. I had the regular eco styler do the same with a different leave in. Try switching one of the two out.
You might also want to make sure you have all product buildup (due to the reaction) out of your hair first.
Sorry to keep coming back, but I had a phone call to take care of.
As far as product suggestions go... It was trial and error for me. I went through so many gels that made my hair feel horrible, and used a few different mediocre leave in's. Products truly work different on everyone. I am currently having success with As I Am Curling Jelly and LI.
