Ecoco Eco Styler Krystal Styling Gel

Feb 18, 2012 - This is my new HG. I am trying to trim my beauty budget (my other HG is Aveda's Confixor, which is $18 a bottle). You can get a giant tub of this for less than $5 from Sally's. The first time I used it, I hated it and thought it was a frizzy mess but I realized I had to use MORE of the product on very, very wet hair. I squeeze excess water out of my hair (don't towel dry) and add my leave-in, then I section it and liberally apply gel to each section. It would seem I'm applying too much product, but that's the right amount. The hair dries soft, curly, and frizz-free and holds throughout the day with no crunch. Magnificent!

Aveda Brilliant Emollient Finishing Gloss

Nov 14, 2010 - Greatest. Product. Ever. I'm not sensitive to cones, so it works for my 3B/C hair. It's light and makes the hair shiny without being greasy and it has the standard Aveda smell. It separates the curls perfectly. I use it on top of the Confixor and have the most beautiful hair all day-even in Chicago rain and wind. Worth every penny-I promise!

Kinky-Curly Curling Custard

Jul 21, 2010 - I wanted to love it-especially at $18 a jar-but I just can't, and I've tried following all of the advice on the Internet/Youtube. You have to put it on sopping wet hair, and I don't use a hair dryer, so my hair takes FOREVER to dry, and it's crunchy, flat and lifeless when it does. The worst part? It actually causes my hair to tangle something fierce. Unlike most curlies, I don't have a problem with tangling at all (and I live in the Windy City). When I wash my hair the next day after using this product, I actually have trouble combing my hair while it's wet, which is a first. It smells good and it isn't tested on animals, but you can't use it with any other leave-ins besides the Knot Today. Back to Aveda Confixor for me-I'm sorry I spent my money on this.

Sine Qua Non - Chicago, Illinois, United States

Feb 11, 2010 - Actually, Summer works at the Lincoln Park location (this add is for the Andersonville location) and I kind of don't want to tell you about her because she's already booked up beyond belief. She is AMAZING. I've never had a better stylist. I have hair that's a cross between a 3b and 3c and she gives me great cuts every time. The only thing better than the initial haircut is how gorgeous it is growing out. It is really beautiful with no mushroom head. I LOVE Summer. LOVE.
