Eco Styler Argan Oil Gel - Experiences or thoughts?

Like Tree1Likes

I have found when I use the Argan Eco Styler with the Shea Moisture Milk that drying time is reduced by about two hours.

I never used the Argon oil but I do love the Krystal.

Dusalocks its definitely a good thing!! I have heard I post a lot too haha but I amaddicted lol. Maybe the glycerin? Anyway I ditched the ecostyler and am gonna use some sm on Wednesday cause I washed my hair today. Also I really want to try more kc products all I have is kckt. However would yhey mix well with sm stuff? Also is your low poo not drying? I don't wanna become a product junkie again!!! The eco was starting to make me kinda dry and steel wooly. I have been wanting to try cj pp but I think it would be more of a wintertime gel for me. I wanna try something lighter for summer idk I didn't put any gel in my hair at all today and I guess I kinda forgot what my hair felt/looked like without product it was quite interesting. Hmm we may be hair twins idk haha. Just to give you an idea I am a 3a mostly but I have some waves and even a few tighter spots but not many. My hair is pretty coarse, dry and kinda rough feeling naturally. I don't know much about porosity and protein sensitivity. However I believe I am medium to thick in density. Sound a bit familiar?

Sometimes I get carried away and manipulate him too much. He tells me he's fine on his own but I never listen. I wash him less now and all in all we're happy.

Wow. Yes, that sounds more like it. I've been looking for a hair twin. Even if we're fraternal twins (porosity?) I'm very pleased to meet you. The argan ecostyler didn't make my hair extra dry or steel wooly until maybe a week in I think. Maybe longer. What happened was I left it in for maybe 3 days and that did it. Then it's like my hair said, "That's it! Can't take no more of this abuse!" I tried using it since even on sopping wet hair to feed the glycerine but it just got dry both times. Too bad.

Well, so far I have yet to find any products that don't play well together but I strongly suspect it's because I'm so porous. Conditioners, jellies, gels, everything just plain gets absorbed into my hair. CJ Pattern Pusha is good and I do like it but it's not perfect. It's still slightly drying like most gels are for me in that it doesn't protect my hair the way KCCC does. But it's still better than all the other gels I've tried so far and it dries fast. Also I can apply it to wet, damp or completely dry hair to predictable results. Still searching for an HG gel I suppose, but Pattern Pusha is very good. Until then I'll play with jellies.

Same here my hair was okay with eco when ibused it for about a week (using it every other day) and it was getting to protein overload. Today I used the as iam cowash, some yes to carrots to detangle, the sm milk, sm smoothie, and sm shine and hold spray. I thought it would be too heavy but it just aucked everything up! ! Yeah Porosity is confusing for me but I do know my hair is like a sponge. Gels give me definition but they come at the cost of bwing really dry-which makes me want to wash and add moisture back in. I will try kcc then, I think gelees and custard like products definitwly give mw morw moisture without the dryness. However I feel like gels make my curls kore springy but like I said its compromise. I think you would like the sm spray it really gave me some hold today, but maybe thats just cause I haven't buaed sm products before this. I think you ahouls experiment with the lighter hold gelees from cj-maybe aloe fix or curl queen? Do you avoid glycerin? I actualky have a bottle if vegetable glycerin but I am to scared haha. Ibhear its better for summer-I wanna try spiral spritz from kc but it has glycerin. Maybe I'll experiment in summer. Definitely kee me updated and or measage me if you find something nice. I'll also be sure to let you know if I come across something that is an honorable mention or possibly hg.

If your hair is like a sponge, you're definitely porous. Sweet! I've got a hair twin. Oh, and I'm the same way. Hard hold gels give me much springier curls it's just that I can't bear the way they make my hair feel and the way they dry me out. I would like to try more things from Curl Junkie but they have protein in them I think. Well, I know at least Curl Queen does. And I do avoid glycerine mostly (it's in the SM CES but that's my one exception) because aside from leave in conditioner I don't like applying product to very wet hair. And glycerine I've heard needs wet hair otherwise it'll suck the moisture out of your own. I haven't tried spiral spritz yet because people say it's just a lighter version of KCCC. (If that's not true, somebody PM me.) And if you really prefer springier curls I'd lay off the KCCC since it gives me looser ones compared to gels. However, it makes my hair look and feel so touchably soft that I honestly don't care. So far FSG is my favorite styling product but I notice if I use it on its own as a "hold" product I need a lot. I mean a ton. So what I'm doing now is KCKT + KCCC the first day, then refresh with FSG or SM products the second and third day, up until I wash again. And I try to time my washes at night if I can. Doesn't always work out though. I'll definitely message you if I find any other great products though. And I've got a blow dryer arriving in the mail tomorrow so I'll update you on my experiments there, too. I'm finally going to try copying House of Curl's routine which I think is in her signature.

Yeah I am definitely high porosity then. Yay I finally have somebody else to compare too lol. I am LOVING the SM smoothie its amazing. I used it today all by itself on like second day hair and its lovely. Yeah I have heard CJ can have a lot of protein so it is scary. Thanks for letting me know cause I kinda wanted to try Curl Queen, but some people say it sucks and its just like putting water on your hair. Hmm how about curls in a bottle? I like springy curls but some days I like them really soft and relaxed too, so I think I will get some KCCC just so I know what its like and I am sure I will use it cause I have no other stylers right now. I love FSG but I can never get all the flax seeds out its so annoying!! I have heard Curly Kinks coil jam is a cheaper version of KCCC, and so is spiral solutions something (they have these two products that are good when used together). Anyway I guess I should stay clear ofKC Spiral Spritz then? Who is HouseofCurls? Does she have hair similiar to ours? I do like to diffuse have fun with that .
Let me know how the experiments go C:

House of Curls' hair is a lot like ours only it's fine and dense, so it looks thick stranded even though it isn't. But her curl pattern is 3A, she's porous and her hair is gorgeous. Her hair twin is Jas76. Gorgeous hair there too. I curl stalk them. I just got my blow dryer in the mail yesterday so I'm going to try out the HoC routine later today. Then Jas' although I don't have nearly as many products to follow that one. But I can sub!

Curls in a bottle has protein too but from what I understand it's like a leave in/enhancer so I'm not sure I need it since, like you, I'm loving that smoothie for those same purposes. I haven't tried coil jam. Thanks for the tip. I know the spiral solutions jelly has amino acids in it so I'm not sure I want to spend money there. But then my hair might love amino acids and I don't even know it yet! I wish there was a way I could buy trial sizes of all of these things I want to test out without spending big bucks. (Sigh!)
