Ok, here goes. I am not a huge gel person, though I must say, sometimes it comes in handy. I usually DIM – read “Do-It-Myself” by making my own preferred Flaxseed gel.
So, in a crunch when time eludes me, I keep a tub of Eco Styler Gel with Olive Oil nearby.
Benefits Of Using A Hair Gel
I do a gel occasionally and the main reasons that come to mind are:
- to set a hairstyle
- to define the natural hair texture (curls, waves, anything)
- to relax frizzy hair
Method Of Application:
I usually apply it to wet hair right after I co-wash. I ensure that my hair is wet and not dripping and then apply the gel using the shingling method. I find it better this way as your hair is not dry as you apply the gel. If it gets dry, I simply use a spray bottle filled with water and re-wet the area that I need to finish.
- No flaking
- Not too crunchy once dry. I find that all I need to do is simply finger/touch my curls and then they soften-up.
- It holds my curls well
- Safe for all types of hair
- Alcohol-free, so it does not dry out your hair
Here is a list of ingredients:
Water, Carbomer, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, PVP, Glycerin Triethanolamine, Sodium Hydroxymethylglycinate, Polysorbate 20, Tetrasodium EDTA, Fragrance and 100% pure olive oil.
My Final Thoughts
A big YES!
I will always have a tub on hand, or should I say – at my fingertips??!!
