I'm allergic to ecostyler; otherwise I'd be a regular user. My chemical allergies really limit my product choices, so I can't afford to be picky. Streaks are acceptable to me IFF it gives me...

I've used it for some time, but for now am using so many products it's hard to tell what does what. It's certainly not hurting my hair any! And it feels natural and chemical free when I spray it. ...

Take it from someone who just went long to short (though I didn't want to); go conservatively, esp if you'd be upset about losing curl. My hair curls more when longer. So if unsure, a trim or small...
