Just curious....I wanted to do something different and use a new gel that didn't work in the past....I figure since my hair is much longer, I would give it a break from ecostyler olive oil gel and try labella clear gel and lo and behold,...this gel is really good...It left my hair soft and defined my curls more then, what do you all think?????

    I like La Bella.. but I liked Ecostyler okay too.. neither dried my hair out because I used coconut oil as a buffer.

    Eventhough I like both, I have to go with Labella. It gives me shine like crazy and great curls! Ecostyler is great but for some reason it dries my hair out and sometimes flakes on me. I've tried the clear and olive.:sad:

    I use long aid for moisture then add eco over the top to seal for Wash n Go styles or Gel n Go dry styling.
    Tried La bella dried my hair out too.

    I thought that Ecostyler gel dried my hair out too but I found a trick to using the Curl Activator and Ecostyler gel combo. Use the Ecostyler Olive Oil gel first and then use the Curl Activator. My hair has a very soft feel, really moisturized, not sticky and uber shiney. I have never tried the Labella but I will find it and try it. :laughing9: I must!

    No me gusta Eco Styler :(

    I stick with natural gels like Aloe. I will say that I tried La Bella before and it worked well. It was crunchy though which i didn't like but that was before I was hip to using oils under/with the gel.
