Known for providing some of the most trustworthy curl definition and elongation for transitioners with limp and frizzy hair, Ecoco just released two updates to their famed Eco Style Gel less than a week ago. "If I have to be on an island by myself, Eco Style is coming with me--that's how tough I rock for Ecostyler," says YouTube content creator CurlDazePer product junkie protocol, we have searched near and far and cannot seem to get our hands on the already sold-out additional stylers, but there is plenty of buzz online generated by those who were lucky enough to grab a jar or two.

Here is what we know so far:

  • The jar of green gooey stuff now includes a jar that contains castor oil and flaxseed, and one with coconut oil.
  • Both are considered on 'level 10' for hold.
  • The consistencies are thicker than the original Eco Style, with different fragrance. Many bloggers claim to enjoy the flaxseed scent.
  • Your coils will be softer and free from a gel cast. Unlike the previous Eco Style gel, these will not leave you with the stiff, crunchy, noodle-like elongation that many transitioners tend to confuse with healthy curl definition.
  • The new formulations might not be ideal to cocktail with. Some YouTubers have mentioned that they noticed some residue when using the product in conjunction with an old favorite like the SheaMoisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie.
  • They can be used as edge tamers, like most Ecoco stylers.

How to get your best results

  1. On soaking wet, washed hair, section off your coils into quadrants, focusing on one at a time.
  2. Finger twirl the product into your hair from the root to tip. Diffuse your hair on low heat on the warm setting, focusing on each quadrant.
  3. Lightly mist your edges with a spray bottle of water.
  4. Comb in a gentle upward, swooping motion.
  5. Smooth back with a gel-coated palm.
