It's ok, does the job. No complaints. I might try the other to see which is best.
I'm also not understanding all the negative reviews on this product. Anyway, I got a *huge* tub of this at a local Korean-owned hair supply store for dirt cheap. A friend of mine raved about it so I wanted to try it for my naturally wavy/curly hair and I'm glad I did. I wear my hair up and back quite a bit, while letting my curls go free at the ends. This gel imparts a lovely sheen and softness to my hair while keeping it completely in place. Best of all, there is not a bit of dryness/brittleness or residue in sight. This gel is a great product at an even greater price.
Great for soft holds on edges, twist-outs or other styling. very inexpensive and I like the olive-oil in it.
Not understanding the negative reviews, but I think it's because when people don't realize what a product was meant for, they use it wrong, leaving a negative review on it. Educate yourself on products before you buy them, it'll save you money in the long run. Anyways, I really like this gel. It doesn't leave my hair dry, brittle, hard, or with flakes. It holds my hair well, while still being soft to the touch. It has water and glycerin in it, which is probably the reason why it leaves my hair soft and shiny. I haven't had problems with the wheat protein in it, my hair likes protein. (Again, if your hair doesn't agree with protein, this product may NOT be for you!) It's cheap, for around $4 you're getting a huge 32oz tub. Overall, if you're looking for a good gel to have just for quick slicked back hairstyles, this is the gel for you. However, this was NOT designed to help define curls, waves, etc. So if you're getting it in hopes of that, this won't be of use.
This review is actually for the gel with argan oil in it. This is hands down the BEST gel ever. It is dirt cheap at Sally's and last forever. I have naturally curly hair and like for my curls to have definition but not be crunchy. This gel does that perfectly. I pair it with a leave in conditioner and mousse. It doesn't flake, which is another plus. The best thing of all is, if you have unruly edges, it smooths them down without drying out your hair. LOVE IT!!!
This is not the gel for me. My hair is tightly curled and wavy but when I put the eco styler in it gives it this puffy dry look. I need something that will define my curls, not make them look mushy and dry. I read somewher it's better on short hair. Oh well...
This was not the best. It made me hair gets drier and drier with each use. I don't think my hair likes products with protien.
This stuff was horrible for me! My hair is natural and it left white stuff in it no matter if I used it by itself or with something else. The funny thing is I tried the EcoStyler with Morrocon Oil and that one is fine.
I love how this product moisturizes my extremely chemically damaged hair, but I got the level 7 I think and does not hold my kinky hair in place well enough.
If only there was a conditioner version of it......
It seems that everyone loves this gel; however, for me it makes my hair crispy, brittle and dry. It does have wheat protein, and my hair does not react well to products with protein.
