One day I went to my local beauty supply store and as I was browsing through the aisles my eyes glanced at a new product on the market that I have been itching to try. Yes ladies, the infamous Eco Styler Black Castor and Flaxseed Oil gel. Did I end up getting it, you ask? Of course! That is what this post is all about. A review of the Eco Styler Black Castor and Flaxseed Oil gel.
For those of you that may be unfamiliar with this product. The Eco Styler Black Castor and Flaxseed Oil gel is a holding gel fortified with vitamin E, Fiber and Omega- 3. The purpose of this gel is to nourish, repair and help the hair grow while at the same time, still being able to superiorly hold, provide shine and feel weightless to the hair.
Lets first start off by discussing the fact that a significant amount of other gels get a bad rep because of the flakes and build up they can produce when used on a consistent basis. However, this is the very first gel that does not get down with the flakes! When I use this gel, it made my edges lay down nice and slick! Most importantly, my edges stayed nice and sleek all day. I make this point because another problem that I have noticed with other gels is that it will not slick my edges down for a long period of time, unless I put a head wrap on for a while. I do not really have to do that with this gel. Another reason why I appreciate this gel is because it leaves my curls defined without leaving my hair stiff.
The packaging is absolutely amazing and convenient! It comes with an easy to use flip lid, which does make the application process easier. The scent of the product has a refreshing smell; it smells like flowers or something! The coolest thing about this product is the fact that it has little specs of glitter throughout the gel. It gives me cute unicorn vibes! At first, I was a little nervous about the glitter being visible in my hair, but no worries, it doesn’t show at all!
So the real question is: Does the gel hold up to the hype? Yes ma’am, absolutely!
All in all, I truly do love what Eco Styler has created with this gem! It seems like they took their time in making this product a successful one!
This specific Eco Styler can pretty much be found in your local beauty supply store or online!
