So you guys, I think I've finally made my peace with EcoStyler and my wash and go's. Now that my hair has grown a little longer, and that I've realized how simple this styling option is, I'm actually loving it.
I prefer the Moroccan Argan Oil gel because it tends to be a little heavier than the Olive Oil version and weighs my curls down more. I've been rocking the above wash and go since Saturday. It's now Thursday. Each morning to refresh my curls, I just spray with my water bottle, fluff my hair to it's original style and go. Now that it's on average 75 - 80 degrees outside, I don't have to worry about leaving with wet hair.
The Ecostyler gels can be found at your local Sally's Beauty Supply, which often runs sales on this for $2.99 for the 32 oz jar. Usually, it's $4.79. The gel has almost an orange aroma to it, but I can't smell it in my hair. I have found that applying a generous amount of coconut oil under this gel doesn't make it quite as hard but it does have a max hold of 10. As you manipulate your hair from day to day, you'll find that the hair does lose some of the crunchy feeling but maintains the hold and curl pattern.
Day 6 Hair!!
