Default Eco Styler Krystal

I bought a huge, incredibly cheap, tub of Eco Styler Krystal because I've heard such great things about it. Thus far, I've tried it over leave-in only and also over kccc. Both times it clumped and defined my hair well, but left it fuzzy, which is not an effect I get with my usual Aussie Instant Freeze over kccc. Are there tricks to using this gel correctly? It was cheap, so I'm not out much money if it doesn't work, but it's such a huge amount -- I'd hate to waste it.

I've heard of some people mixing a hard hold gel like BRHG, AIF, or HESMU with it. I've never tried that gel, though I've wanted to, so I'll be interested in what you find out on here!

i bought this over the weekend after i saw my boyfriends little brother had it and i tried it. i read so many good reviews here on it so i tried it only on dry, 2nd day hair but on 2nd day hair it helped my frizz and gave me lots of shine! it didnt hold my hair the way i expected it to. i have not tried it on wet hair yet though.

good luck, please let us know if you find a way that works for u!

Diane, I'm curious how you used this on dry hair? It's such a thick, gloppy gel that I can't imagine applying it to dry hair without major frizz and grossness occurring.

Otherwise, I haven't had much luck with this gel yet, unfortunately...

I just take a little, rub between my hands and scrunch it in section by section. I didnt have issues, it helped my frizz

I have a whole tub here too. I dont like it. I dont like the consistancy (way too thick), and I believe it has glycerin which gives me frizz.

HSR, could be your hair disliked the protein in the EcoStyler. KCCC and AIF have none.
