Rated 5 out of 5 by DesertColors Not just great...outstanding!
This gel is wonderful. I use it on wet and/or dry hair to keep the frizz out of my 3b curls and to keep them elongated and defined. We've had unusally high dew point temperatures in the desert this summer, with typically low humidity, so my hair wants to frizz and fray at the same time. I must have moisture on my dry ends or my hair cracks. Krystal gel doesn't feel like any other gel I've experienced. It's cushioney, but not sticky, and it's unusually lightweight. I had decided I'm tired of "scrunching" for an hour in order to achieve my "Bada Bing Gel look" that stops my hair from bouncing or blowing in breezes. I started using curl creams, but I missed the easy definition the Bada Bing provided. After trials and errors I find that with Krystal gel + Eco Curl & Styling Cocktail (or at least a leave-in conditioner), I get nice definition and hold, and my curls don't feel like plastic or spring into kinks. Krystal is not the kind of gel that freezes your curls in place, but it is great for keeping them from getting too tight. (When my hair gets tight it looks like I've gotten a short haircut). I have black (color) hair and I never see any white film or flakes in my hair.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Gitana330 Its an ok gel
Is not a bad gel, But I have lots of hair, 3c curly and I find it better to control when using products that clump my curls, but this gel does not do that for me. I live in a very humid place, my hair doesn't frizz bad with this gel but my hair ends become too dry and undefined and I don't like it. I tried to use it in 3 different occasions changing methods but had same results. Maybe anyone with less amount of hair might find it worth using.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MRogers THE BEST GEL!!
I've used the olive oil, argan oil, and protein (brown gel with white lid) eco styler gels. But this Krystal Eco Styler gel is the absolute best! My hair stays moisturized, the hold is excellent and not super crunchy, and I have absolutely NO FLAKES! I'm throwing all of my other eco styler gels and other brand gels away because this one does exactly what it's supposed to do - it's the kind of gel I've been looking for. I used this gel when doing a twist out, and my twist out lasted for 4 days without me doing ANYTHING to my hair besides wearing a satin scarf on my hair at night. If you don't like the #10 hold it provides, siimply use a light oil like grapeseed oil before applying the gel. It will then give you a flexible hold.
