Default Curl Definer Suggestions

Hello, any suggestions for curl definers other than Eco? My hair was cute but crunchy lol I will try anything . My hair isnt long so I dont have many options or at least I dont think I do lol have like 5-6 inches right now. Best I could do was a twistout 0_o. Would love to rock a wash and go

Which Eco did you use & what did you use with it? Are you looking for something that isn't a gel period or something that isn't Eco? Eco has varying holds & also it's beneficial to use a leave-in or oil underneath. The only other gel I have tried and like is called ViaNaturals. It's about the same price as EcoStyler. Looks like this:



I used the yellow color which is soft hold.

I used the Eco with Olive Oil. If I can find a gel that doesnt crunch that would work. As far as the vianaturals where is it sold? Thanks alot for the help

The best one for me hands down is still Kinky Curly Curling Custard. I've tried Eco olive, blue, argan. Which are still good with some SheaMoisture Smoothie under to get rid of the crunch. But KCCC defines better for me. You also get multiple day hair with KCCC, just by spritzing with water, no re-applying (for me anyway)...the only thing is it's about $17 a jar

The Eco w/olive oil has a hold of 10. The Eco I use is the blue kind for color-treated hair. It has a hold of 5. The hold is good without being crunchy. I find the blue Eco & the ViaNaturals at the smaller BSSs. They don't carry either at Sally.

Oh, have you ever thought of using aloe vera gel? Fruit of the Earth is pretty good. Inexpensive too.
