May 05, 2012 - I agree with a majority of the raters stating this gel isn't the best. I have always had very thick, soft, naturally curly hair and had a permanent wave for about 3 years just to tame it. After I decided to go back to natural, I wanted to make sure I used healthy and more naturally moisturizing products. I was using EcoStyler gel, which worked, but I had to use more of it to hold my hair. So, when I ran out I found this new gel at my local beauty supply and decided to try it, because I'd always had success with their brown protein gels in the past. But just as 'Themedievalist' stated in her review, it goes on thick and sticky! I started to wash the gel out of my hair too, but just decided to add some more moisturizer to thin it out some. What I found out is that depending on the type of moisturizer you use, mixed together with both Ampro and EcoStyler gels, it creates a light (almost white) creamy film in your hair that is hard to blend in or brush out. And both gels caused flakes in my hair too. I guess because my hair is so thick, I have to use more than normal. So if you don't wash you hair every 2 or 3 days after re-applying it, it does flake and looks like you have dandruff. I bought the entire 32 oz. tub (big mistake!), so as soon as I'm done using it all, I'll probably just go back to the lighter EcoStyler until something better comes along.
