Ecostyler vs KCCC with pics



Alright, so i typically use KCKT, KCCC and BRHG which produce results like the 2nd bottom picture of me in the blue shirt. The top picture (in scrubs) is my first attempt using KCKT, Ecostyler Krystal and BRHG. This picture was even taken after working 12 hours on a busy psych unit. I got many compliments on my hair that day at work. My hair has also never held up so long before. I think i like the Ecostyler better!!! It gave me more defined results and did not shrink my hair as much. It is also much cheaper and dried faster than KCCC!!! I used the same routine both days besides the switch-a-roo between KCCC and Ecostyler. A big THANKS to all those curlies who reviewed Ecostyler and convinced me to go pick up a tub...... What do you guys think?

Your comparison pics are great! I think I am definitely checking out the Ecostyler Krystal when I start running low on KCCC.

Does Ecostyler have alcohol in it, or more alcohol (higher up in ingredient list) than KCCC? Wondering, because I know my hair dries faster if a product has more alcohol in it.

The eco styler that i use is the krystal one and it has no alcohol. RM i like both pics....guess on days when you want to retain some length use the eco, days you want to be curly swirly use the kccc, either way its still pretty

Thanks for posting comparison pictures. Makes me want to revisit my ecostyler again. You do have gorgeous hair either way.

No heat styling


gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous, both of them. I may have to pick up eco styler.
Thanks fellow curly girls!!! I never thought i would get such great results from a $3.00 hair product. I have tried all the cheap drug store brands and none worked well with the exception of HESMU which i use to put my hair up!! I should mention that i scrunch ecostyler into soaking wet hair in the shower....i do the same with all my other products as well as this seems to cut down on frizz. I know this is a certain procedure and has a name on this board but I cannot remember what it is called...lol....i just know it works well for me.....

dang, I've been trying to resist buying this, but I think now I have to.

Beautiful hair! I notice that the ecostyler makes you look cheerier and makes your eyes bluer, too!

I'm getting really good results with it, too. I get better hold and less frizz than with KCCC and I think it is more curl-enhancing. I also add it to sopping wet hair and I pour more water over my hair to get it to clump after I brush it through.

It seems very moisturizing. Feels plasticky going on but leaves my hair soft and shiny once it dries & I scrunch. Really a terrific product, and an amazing bargain!

FABULOUS COLOR!!! I love red curls (though I'm slightly biased... heh). Your hair is gorgeous in both photos, but does look better with the EcoStyler gel. I'm currently broke, so no danger of me going out to buy this anytime soon, but I'll have to keep this in mind for future reference. Thanks for posting, you're lovely.

Thanks for the nice comments!! Sorry I have not been on in awhile. I get so tired easily working full time and going to school full time....still loving the ecostyler gel... its works very well with BRHG but not on its own without another gel for me!!! KCCC is the same way though....

Great pictures! I'm also a biased red hair lover -- your hair reminds me of mine..... if mine were PERFECT!

I think your hair looks lovely in both, but the first pic does seem to show more shine and absolutely no frizz. Wow.

Wurly and proud!
