Anyone used this? I bought it on a whim (it's dangerous taking walks near my job, too many shops!)

Would you use this under ecostyler?

    Yep, I've tried it in the past and didn't care for it at all. I preferred KCCC over it hands down.

    i used it and it did nothing for my hair. just made my hair feel grease-y. long aid worked 100% better.

    I have this, but I only used it once and clearly remember putting eco styler of top of it and my hair came out okay. I should revisit this. :happy3:

    I tried it earlier this week..paired up with 14 n 1 it gave my hair a really soft hold. It felt like there was no product in my hair...I never thought of using it under eco style though, since it is a gel...i'll try it again this weekend...

    I have been thinking about using the 14 in 1, but have been hesitant because of the mineral oil. How do you like it? Do you have product buildup?

    On other sites it gets lots of great reviews. I'm looking for something that will keep my hair in check this summer since I want to do more wash n go's or something that can be a good mid-week mositurizer for my braid outs.

    I used the 14n1, when I was in braids. It worked really nice as a moisturizer. It does foam up and turn white though. You have to make sure you rub it in once you spray it. It was nice but I dont think Im going to repurchase it

    the curl activator gel works perfect under the eco styler gel. I think I used too much because my hair was too soft

    I see this has glycerine in it, so I don't think I'll be using this product.. my hair hatessss glycerine.

    I just recently used the HS dry gel under my regular gel. I got good results beause the dry gel does not shrink hair. Very soft hold, but if you use too much, it will be greasy/sticky. I used it on slightly damp hair.

    I actually like it better than Long Aid because Long Aid made my hair shrink into a one inch twa. lol
