Ecostyler

I just bought some today and was wondering how you all use yours. Are there things to avoid or that you get good results from using with it?

Also there were three to choose from and I wasn't sure which one was the strongest hold, firm or maximum (I think I picked max).

    I've only used the Krystal one. I use it like I would any gel, over an enhancer.

    +1

    I haven't tried it lately, since it was giving me frizzies in high dews. I may try it with some of my new products and see how it goes.

    I just starting using it like a week ago, but so far I love it. I made the switch from [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Kinky-Curly-Curling-Custard-p-778.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=kinkycurly-curling-custard]KCCC[/buylink] which just wasn't really working for me. Plus it's so much more fitting in my budget.

    Does Ecostyler Krystal have wheat protein in it? I want to try it, but my hair hates hydrolized wheat protein.
    2c/3a with 2b underlayer. Fine, porous. Loves protein. But not hydrolized wheat protein. Yuck.

    Gels: LA Looks Sport Gel
    Mousse: Tigi Catwalk Curlesque
    Curling creams/gellies: Coffee Coco Curling Cream Lite, Spiral Solutions Curl Enhancing Jelly, Curls Gel-les'c

    I've been using ecostyler krystal as a curl enhancer with BRHG over the top. I need lots of hold.
    I like it so far.

    This.

    It's not hard enough for me in high dews (more then enough in lower dews), but I use [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Curl-Junkie-Curls-in-a-Bottle-p-995.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=Curl-Junkie-Curls-in-a-Bottle]CIAB[/buylink] under it, and HESMU or BRHG over it, and it's back in my rotation again. So glad, because I missed it.

    I may have to start doing this. It isn't enough for me either in the higher dews.
