    Finally found it when I wasn't looking for it. There were 3 sizes and I went with the medium size. Hope this works for me.

    I've been eyeing this gel, but unsure. My hair likes Ecostyler for the most part. Anyone here love it? I started trying my hand at DIY flax seed gel, and my hair does not love it...

    Hated it! I used it several times with the same results a one day wash n go. Today I used it just to tame my bangs and slick my edges into a pony puff and I had minimal flaking and ok definition but I can get ZERO flaking and awesome definition using Eco Olive so if it ain't broke....

    This gel works nicely with my keratin treated hair but does nothing for my natural roots. So when it dried my hair looked crazy. I can't use it to slick my hair either! My natural hair just poofed and curled up instead of laying flat. :cry: I really can't stand my hair sometimes.

    i'm loving this gel. I haven't gotten any flakes at all using on top of different white thick creamy moisturizers. I also like that the hold is soft. I have the argan oil one for a hard hold so i didn't need something else like that

    Finally found it. Hopefully it's decent because I'm not buying any more gel until this is gone

    It's so thick and hard to apply. There's no crunch though, my hair is soft

    Ok this is interesting. It's thicker than the other eco gels but rinses out easier. That's always what I hated about eco. Hard to wash out.

    I still can't find it. I was actually willing to try this particular Eco Styler gel. Oh, well.

    Here's an INTERESTING video comparing the coconut oil one with the flaxseed black castor oil:
