Product Review - Ecostyler Olive Oil styling gel

Product Review - Ecostyler Olive Oil styling gel

OK Naturals, I'm not gonna lie when I say I had a hard time tracking Ecostyler Olive Oil Styling Gel down in Denver.  Not the Eco Styling gel so much as the Olive Oil one.  I just assumed when I saw it was at a local Sally's online that it was the Olive oil one but it wasn't.  A little more digging on my part allowed me to find a Sally's with one that wasn't really that far away.  I was excited to say the least.
PRODUCT REVIEW - OBIA NATURAL HAIR CARE CURL MOISTURE CREAM

I have been hearing so many Naturals RAVING about this stuff that I was in need to try it myself.  I've heard some say they use it daily like I use my Kinky Curly Curly Custard so that really got me curious.  It was cheap too so that was a plus when I picked it up a few months ago.

PRODUCT REVIEW - SHEA MOISTURE RESTORATIVE CONDITIONER

I was using let's Jam gel for so long before I realized it wasn't good for my hair so when I came across this I was excited and pleased.  It's light, doesn't flake and clear.  I like that about it as well as it glides through my hair with no problem.  There is a very, very light scent that is pleasant and the jar is HUGE!  You get your money's worth that is for sure.  

The first five ingredients in Eco Styler Olive Oil styling gel:

Water
Carbomer / white, fluffy powders but are frequently used as gels
Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein
PVP
Glycerin

Gotta follow the crowd and love this stuff!  It's great on my hair and no flaking what so ever!  My curls are shiny and distinct and my hair doesn't feel weighed down at all.  It holds very similarly to KCCC, but I must add the reason it won't replace it is because of the protein.  I can't be putting this stuff in my hair everyday like KCCC.  Reading ingredients is key and seeing some Naturals complain about brittle hair made me look at the ingredients a little deeper and see that there was protein in it.  So you know what that means....I use it sparingly.  I try not to use it more than once a week so that big bottle lasts a really long time. 


This is a keeper and a good buy if you want to give it a try.  I do use it sparingly but it makes my hair lovely since I started the Curly Girl Method
and it is truly a staple product. 

Take care Naturals,
Sabrina

  1. I love this stuff, it is my go to product when all else fails. I can slick my edges back and get a nice, polished look when needed. I use this for my wash and goes as well and it never lets me down. I'm sorry you had to go so far to grab a bottle, I see them everywhere in MD!

    2. Anything with 100% of something one is very difficult to find, and second should cost more than 2.00. Pure olive oil to say the least.

    1. I agree! Can't use to often cause of the protein, but when I want that slicked back look it's the best.

    1. It really depends on you but I would put it on after the EVOO. Hope that works.

  7. If it flaked up there is a possibility too much was used. Not to say that you did use too much but consider it. It should be used sparingly along with other products. It says no alcohol and it is made with olive oil but it is still a gel which means it has "drying" properties, which is what gives it the ability to "hold". I too think it should be the last product used in a regimen.

  8. I purchased for my short natural and use it along with Miss Jessie's Curly Pudding. I don't use very much but I must say that I love it and will definately purchase more.

    1. It is great but just be careful since it has protein in it. Too much protein can make your hair brittle. I'd love to see pics of your TWA with the mixture you mentioned.

  9. Although I do use this to lay my edges sometimes I've never used it for a WnG. I plan to do it this weekend.

  10. I use it only once a week and haven't had any brittle hair but will try KCCC again to see the difference. Used it first when I had a TWA, now have shoulder length curls
