EcoStyler No Longer my Unicorn Gel
 
Help! Lol

When i first went natural, EcoStyler Argan was my HG gel. It made my hair nice and springy, even made it shiny, gave nice hold. But now that my hair is longer it seems like the EcoStyler doesn't work as well. I guess I'm looking for something with more hold.

I've tried the KCCC but i think I'm allergic to marshmallow root bc it makes my scalp itch. I'd try it again but it is also expensive. Any other alternatives would be appreciated. :)

If you liked KCCC, I think you might like Kiss My Face Upper Management. I use both, at different times, and find them very similar, although their ingredients are different; and it does not have any marshmallow. (VitaCost carries it for $5.99 per bottle here.)

I totally feel your pain- KCCC is my HG product and I can't seem to find a half decent dupe anywhere (I'm in Canada so options are limited... it's also 46 dollars a tub here... yikes!).

I've tried Kiss My Face as a cheaper alternative but I found it made my hair really dry and dull (I'm a low 2, high 3 texture if that helps). I also had to use a lot of it to get any result and had a lot of frizz when blow drying or sleeping on it. Some people love it though and for under ten dollars why not try it?

I've had better results with the Giovanni brand clear gel, I found I could use less and get better hold but it still wasn't as great as the KCCC.

Good Luck!

If you're not opposed to DIY, flax seed gel has been wonderful for me!

Other gels I've tried with as much or more hold than argan ecostyler include Aussie Instant Freeze and Aubrey Organics B-5 Design gel. I've didn't like the former, rather liked the latter. My favorite gel so far (as I prefer gellies) is CJ Pattern Pusha. I've really got to pick up Kiss My Face Upper Management though. I've been hearing about that for a while.

+1 for Aussie Instant Freeze, and also Herbal Essence Totally Twisted (though it has a PEG cone). I've had a tub of Eco Styler Crystal for ages, and my hair sorta-kinda likes it, but it's not my favorite.
