I decided to revamp this post because it was time. This old-faithful is getting new life as many newly naturals are trying it out and loving it. The Eco Style Professional Olive Styling Gel can be found everywhere and while some veteran naturals have moved onto new products, this still stays in my bathroom for good reason.
When I first heard about it, 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.
- No flaking, no tack and anti-itch
- Contains 100% pure olive oil
- Safe for all hair types
Eco Style Professional Styling Gel with Olive Oil
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:
Carbomer / white, fluffy powders but are frequently used as gels
Trimethanolamine / alkaline substance used as surfactant and pH adjusting
Olea Europea (Olive) Fruit Oil
Hydrogenated Wheat Protein / basically a strengthening hydrator
* Poor rating. Will not be buying again ever!!

Eco Style Olive Oil Styling Gel ****
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.
If you want to use it daily then I would suggest the ECO STYLE Professional Styling Gel Black Castor & Flaxseed Oil which does not have the protein within the first 5 ingredients.
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 when I started the Curly Girl Method and it is truly a staple product for me back then and now. I use it even more when I travel to humid climates too.
Take care Naturals,
