And here I thought there was something wrong with my 3C curls! I believe my hair is medium-porosity and so I tried the EcoStyler Olive Oil because it's inexpensive and I heard such great reviews.
Well, it doesn't matter whether I use it with the SM Curl Smoothie or a liquid conditioner (like my favorites, Renpure Argan or Tresemme Naturals), this gel will pretty much turn ANYTHING into paste.
The paste is difficult to distribute, except when I use the Denman brush. If I use a small amount, it doesn't do anything; no shine, no definition, no frizz-control, no tangle-control, no poof-control, no nothing.
I tried to use more and all I was got was a head full of flakes (eek!). Second day hair was OK, but by day three, my hair is a giant, dried-out, frizzy poof!
I don't know why I wasted $4... Lesson learned.
Anyway, I'm back to my (now Holy Grail) Biotera Styling Gel. (I also love the Kinky-Curly Curling Custard, but it's too expensive for my budget). These get along well with every conditioner I've tried and my curls always look beautiful!
