~MY THOUGHTS ON ECO STYLER GEL..BLUE & PINK~....



Hey there Fellow Fabulous Naturals!

I hope each of you had a wonderful and productive weekend!:)0.  Today I bring you my final thoughts on the Eco Styler gel blue & Eco styler gel pink.  I must say I have always been a huge fan of their gels, they have always treated me kindly.  The ones I'm speaking about are the one with olive oil, and currently, the more recent ones blue & pink.  So lets get started:

ECO STYLER BLUE:

They say:

*Adds volume and sheen to chemically treated hair.
* Ideal for sculptured or relaxed hair styles.
*Contains sunscreen for color treated hair.
* No flakes, No tack.
* Alcohol free.

Ingredients: ( first 5)

Water, Carbomer, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, PVP, Glycerin, Triethanolamine.

I say:

I do like this gel, just not enough hold for my hair.  This little number is a blue colored gel ( go figure, lol). It states its geared toward color treated hair. A level 5 on their holding scale 1 (one) being soft hold, 10 being maxium hold.  It test as pH OF 7. The scent...I don't know I can't put my finger on the smell. I wouldn't say it's a jump out of my seat wonderful scent, but it's tolarable. I could not get second day hair from this gel. which is a deal breaker in most cases for me.  Because the ingredients are not that great I would much rather use a gel if the ingredients are not great less often, oppose to using a gel with not that great ingredients more often.  But, I will say the price....super! at a 8 oz for $1.49.   Will I buy this product again , I would not simply because it didn't have the hold my hair needs.  But, its really not a bad gel at all.

ECO STYLER FIRM HOLD GEL PINK:

They say:

Eco styler firm hold gel identified by the pink color has the added benefit of anti- itch additives to minimize scalp irration.  Ideal for waves and other stlyes that are worn to be untouched.  This product contains glycerin to moisturize ensuring that the product will not cause flaking or leave hair hard or brittle.

Ingredients:

Water, Carbomer, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, PVP, Glycerin, Tea Tree (Melaleuca Alternifolia) Oil, Chamomile (Anthemis Nobilis) Extract, Calendula Officinalis Extract, Echinacea Angustifolia, Centella Asiatica, Triethanolamine, Sodium Hydroxymethylglycinate, Polysorbate 20, Tetrasodium EDTA, Fragrance, D&C Red No. 33.

I say:

I looooove this gel!.  This gel is ..guess...pink. (lol).  I will say that the ingredients are a bit better than those in the eco styler blue.  This is the next best thing to my upper face management gel.  It has a firm hold of 7 on their holding scale 1(one) being the softess hold and 10 being maxium hold.  This little number plays great with other products, clumps my curls and makes them fat like no bodies business.  I can get 2-3 day curls with this gel.  Gives my hair shine. My hair is never hard to the touch ( a trick for that in the event, it happens with any gel, I just lossen my culrs, run my hands over my curls and it softens right up). It test as a pH of 7.  I always use a leave -in ( after my experimenting with not using leave-ins to see their necessity, I concur they are necessary and definitly add to the added moisture in the hair) as with any gel I use.  I feel it is necessary for the added moisture especially with using gels.  I also, make a custard with this gel by simply adding some herb infused olive oil and a bit of Aloe Vera juice.  I love the results from adding those two ingredients.  The scent  I will say I'm not that fond of, but it doesn't linger and is tolerable.  Even better is the price...Again, $ 1.49 for a 8oz size...you can't beat that.  Will I purchase this again....Most definitly , and even in the largest size. This is a great gel, and works great in my hair. Again, I do recommend using a leave in under this gel or any gel.  The ingredients are not the best, but can be worked with.  This gel gives great definition!

So there you have it my final thought on the Eco Styler gels both blue & pink.  Thanks for stopping by ladies.
Remember to stay.....Naturally Fabulous!:))

Great Reviews!!
Can you use the gels to twists?
By the way, I love your idea of mixing with herb infused olive oil and aloe vera juice.
