I’ve watched many of my fellow naturalistas on YT use Eco Styler gel to define their curls. After seeing a few of my Type 4 curlfriends use it, I was sure it would work for me.
A few of my fellow curlies compared the Eco Styler Gel to the Kinky Curly Curling Custard, stating that for a fraction of the price, you could get defined curls. I wanted to revisit my wash n go, but I didn’t have anymore Kinky Curly Curling Custard and I have a large jar of Eco Styler gel, so I thought I’d give it a try.
I’m going to be brutally honest with you, my hair looked AHotMess[dot]com! It was a #FAIL. My hair was stiff, hard, had no movement, and I just looked crazy. A few of my subscribers said I looked like Fredrick Douglas! LOL
When I used the Kinky Curly Curling Custard, my hair looked FAB-U-LOUS! I will never ever ever use the Eco Styler gel to define my curls again. For my hair, it’s best used to smooth or slick my hair down.
Be prepared to laugh really hard while you watch this video.
Does Eco Styler Gel define your curls? Have you ever been able to define your curl pattern?
