Ecostyler + Renpure (red)= good combo.

I found (finally) some ecostyler yesterday, and happened to have a bottle of the red Renpure (my hair is so thirsty, or whatever it is).

Mixed them 50:50 with a little extra water to help with the schmearing, and it turns into a-guess what-creamy, thick, paste.

Emulsified it in my hands and scrunched through with copious amounts of water, pixiecurled, and voila!

Full, bouncy, soft ringlet-y hair. And as I'm a 2b with a rather 'weak' curl pattern (yep, I said it!) that needs lots of encouragement, this is a big deal. It even held together my always-frayed ends (I'm in dire need of a trim). It lasted through a long day of cleaning house and moving furniture in and out of the misty-rainy-windy weather.

I need to monkey with the proportions a little, a little extra hold and a little less 'soft' would be even better, but in case someone is on the hunt for a 'curl creme', this might be something to try.

It looks like one big booger ball in your hand. But rub it together, and it melts into a nice creamy consistency. One day does not a HG make, so will need to test run a few more times, but hey, we'll see.

    Sounds great. What's Renpure though?

    I leave some conditioner on my hair and apply the EcoStyler now that my hair is short. But I like a much, much softer hold when my curls start coming in. Is Renpure expensive and where can I get it?

    Thanks!!

    I got mine at walgreens; $6.99 for a-ummmm....8 ounce(?) bottle?

    So not suave-cheap, but not uber$$$ either.


    This is a high-protein combo...for those that are sensitive to such things...

    CVS has Renpure too. I think the bottle is a little bigger, I'd guess 13oz. It goes on a BOGO every few months. It was just on sale last week or the week before, sot it won't be on sale again for a while.
