How it claims to work:

I was mostly excited for this gel when I saw that Eco Styles came out with new gels. This was the hot thing everyone in the natural hair beauty community was raving about, but you couldn’t find it anywhere! I could not find this at any of my local beauty supply shops, so I was desparate enough to find a supplier online. I purchased mine from I was completely happy when the shipment and the speed of the shipping. But enough about where I bought, how is the actual product! First, the smell is amazing. The texture of the gel isn’t as “heavy” as the coconut gel. If you have used their coconut gel, you will know what I mean by that. For those who don’t, the coconut eco styler gel laid my hair down so much better and longer than this gel. I felt that this did a good job at smoothing the hair for a good back bun, but the coconut really impressed me more. I think this gel is better for the things it claims to do, which are promoting strength and protection. Although that’s something I can only notice with time, I think it is gentle on the hair for someone who would need a little hold with no harsh chemicals, to help hair growth. I didn’t experience extra hold with this gel either. I actually would prefer it to have more hold for my liking, but I also believe none of the Eco Styling gels hold styles up to my standards.

Ratings and Comments:
I would totally recommend this for someone who needs a good gel and may have issues with loss of edges or any hair lost. This product could be a save alternative to give you some hold without worries of further loss of hair. But also if you want to take preventive messures, this can promote healthy hair growth. I didn’t see significant hold with this product, but I believe that all Eco Stylers have about the same about of hold.

I give this product a 4 out of 5.
