Customer Reviews:

Strong Hold for Thick Hair

As someone with thick 4bc curly hair, I found that it provided the perfect hold for my curls, keeping them in place all day.

Flakes Easily

Unfortunately, I noticed that the gel tends to flake easily, leaving white residue in my hair, which was quite disappointing.

Long-Lasting Scent

The lingering fragrance of the gel is delightful and it lasts all day, keeping my hair smelling fresh and pleasant.

Neutral Curl Retention

The gel provided a thick consistency and strong hold, but unfortunately, it lacked curl retention, which was a bit of a drawback for my 4b curls.

Residue Buildup Issue

Using the gel excessively led to residue buildup in my hair, making it necessary to wash every other day to avoid the greasy feeling.

Product Summary:

The Eco Style Krystal Styling Gel, priced between $3.00-$5.00, offers a strong hold and high shine finish, ideal for creating sleek and structured hairstyles. Despite its thick consistency, which may impact curl retention and lead to flaking over time, it provides a smooth and professional look that keeps hair frizz-free.

This gel features a smooth and creamy texture that allows for easy application and quick drying, resulting in a firm yet flexible hold without sticky or crunchy residue. It’s especially effective for thick, full 4bc curly hair, helping to contain and define curls meticulously.

While the gel has a pleasant fragrance that endures, its hold may weaken throughout the day, necessitating careful management of application to avoid residue buildup. The product is challenging to wash out, often leaving residue that requires an oil treatment for softening. Users should be cautious with the quantity used to prevent excessive buildup that typical oils like castor, coconut, and olive might not cause.
