Wash & Go w/ Olive Oil EcoStyler gel

Yes, the curls are back! Yay for no heat damage lol
Now if you've been following my blog for awhile you know I don't do wash and gos! I get an insane amount of single strand knots when my hair dries loose.
But for some reason I've had an insane desire to do a wash and go.
So that's what I did.
Now I wanted to buy a jar of kinky curly curling custard, but I decided to just use my ecostyler instead. I'm saving my pennies y'all.
Anywho...I rinsed my hair, applied a little pumpkin conditioner and then raked the gel through my hair taking small sections at a time. I put clips on the ends of my hair to keep them weighed down. (and hopefully prevent knots)
It took me about 30 mins and I was pleased with the results...initially.

My hair is crunchy ;(
Maybe I needed to apply a leave in or oil?
I might just suck it up and buy the kinky curly :/


  1. I keep hearing about this eco-style gel and I am convinced finally I have got to try it. Because I have 10 different textures of hair my wash and gos have not been successful. maybee this is the solution to my problem.

  2. I've used both Eco Styler gel (the clear one/clear jar) and Kinky Curly Curling Custard for wash and go's. For me, both had a similar result. To reduce/eliminate the hardness (or crunch) I apply a light oil like jojoba oil when I am done. It seems to give it a softer feel once it has air-dried. I also know some people have used a light oil UNDER the gel, too.

  3. Thanks Keeta! I'm going to rinse and try that tonight.
