Best Eco Styler Styling Gel?
 
A friend told me that the Eco Styler Krystal Styling gel is the absolute best styling gel EVER! Only problem is...Her hair is somewhere around 2c and mine's 3c/4a :goofy: I also hear that Eco Styler Olive Oil Styling Gel is REALLY good..:shock:..

Basically, have you guys tried any of them? If so, which one worked for you? :glasses1:

when my hair was short (right after bc), i used krystal clear. now that my hair is longer... for buns and twists i use the olive oil version. although they both give a hold rating of 10, the olive oil version has a lighter hold.

I used to use the clear one but found it too drying. I prefer the olive oil one. It's better in my opinion.

Noodle - do a search of this forum and the one with reader's product reviews. There was a spirited debate on this last year and will help. People went into every single version of EcoStyler available - pink, clear, brown, blue, yellow and olive oil. It was informative, to say the least.

I also agree that the Olive Oil (green) version is best. :happy2:

Okay, I'll be the oddball. I prefer the Klear. Love it. The only other one I've used is the Olive Oil. For whatever reason, depending on what I use underneath, the Olive Oil can be a tad drying on my hair.

I tried to do a wash and go a few days ago with the eco styler gel. I'm not sure if its called krystal, but its clear. But when I put it on my hair and used my leave in It got flakey. I didn't like it :/

Eco w/Olive Oil I find has the best hold for thicker hair , but that's just me:hello2:

rachelolivia2010 08-03-2010 08:04 PM

I have the pink and the olive oil. I don't really do wash and go's because I'm lazy. Lol. But to slick back my hair I use the olive oil one. It's better for me, IMO. The pink was kinda a last minute thing, because I didn't have my olive oil gel with me.

I use the Eco Styler for color treated hair. It is blue. The Eco Styler krystal isn't too bad, but the Olive Oil makes my hair hard as a brick for some reason. I kinda stop using them all though in favor of regular Aloe Vera Gel.

NoodleHead14 08-04-2010 01:47 PM

Thanks guys :happy4:. . . Also, I was wondering if any of the Eco Styler Gels had enough hold for a twist out/braid out.

boingboing 08-04-2010 04:54 PM

well ive been loving the olive oil one just to slick back edges and flyaways but recently i put my older version the brown eco styler and it was great through out my hair worked great

lashon20 08-04-2010 06:34 PM

I use pink, I like that the best out of the others.

straightkinky 08-04-2010 07:15 PM

Kinda long, but there is a point...
 
I've been using the pink for a while now and liked it until yesterday. I used SAMY PURE for my co-wash/leave-in for my daily W-N-G and they did not play well together. My PX didn't have anymore pink (or any other for that matter) last night when I went to restock so I thought that I was going to have to spend the whole night trying to fix my hair for work. Then I remembered the Klear that I smuggled from the states when I came to Japan. I had only used it once and I hated the "dirty dishrag" smell of it, the crunchiness and flakes, but kept it because I paid for it. Well this morning, we spoke, and I told
Ms. Krystal Klear that this was her last chance to get right and be good to my Boomshika. Believe it or not, she listened. I used it straight, unmixed on dripping wet freshly co-washed hair, no leave-in. Defused for 5 minutes and scrunched with Oils of Aloha Kukui oil and left it to blow in the wind. My Boomshika is fierce, soft and well defined!
:love7:I love me some Ecostyler! All of them work for me (eventhough I'm still working thru the dirty dishrag thing)

I purchased the Eco Style Krystal Styler 10 gel and it was a little stiff for my hair. I ended up mixing a little almond oil (or whatever oil I have on hand for my skin) and it softened it up a bit.

This was the one

After I purchased it, I didn't know there were more than that one type. I purchased it from my local Sally's and they don't carry anything else from that line - I really want to try the olive oil one.

I'm having the same issue my hair type is like 3c/4a. I got the Eco styler gel the Argen oil styling gel and it does not hold my hair up at all. I want a gel that is really strong and that slicks my hair type. Any help please!!???? In desperate need I know nothing about hair my hairs been natural since I was born. I'm confused. :-(

fefe912 05-24-2013 09:58 PM

pinkwolf 05-24-2013 11:48 PM
