I'm really appreciating all of the feedback, I will be sure to try these..

The Eco Styler I tried wasn't a special kind. It was just clear and regular ( i guess) ..

Also I haven't tried any essential oils ahead of time and I shall try that....

and for no reason at all i've been overlooking the CURLS products but it looks like I should try the Goddess Gel as well
