As my foreign product stash begins to dwindle, I am faced with the challenge of finding products that work for my hair here in Nigeria.

In this case, I needed to find a replacement for my Eco Styler Gel and I came across Organic Root Stimulator- Lock and Twist Gel in my local grocery store. I purchased this product for N555 and used it for a Wash & Go.

Other than Giovanni Direct Leave-in Conditioner no other product apart from the gel was added. I used my fingers to rake the gel all through my hair and by the time I was done, my hair shrank to about 2 inches! (haha, the beauty of natural hair).

Anyway, I let it set overnight using the pineapple method and by morning my hair was completely dry. It felt a little stiff but well moisturised at the same time.  So for the first three days after wash day, I spritzed only water to revive my curls and coated my strands with a little oil for shine. (I did not add any more gel or hair butter because I was afraid of product buildup).

For the days after, I styled my hair in an updo and it still felt soft and had some hold but I noticed some white flakes here and there. Eventually, it spread all over my head so I decided it was time for a wash.

I haven’t used this gel since last year so when I found this recently on my cosmetic table I noticed it had formed into two blocked jellies. I don’t know why. There isn’t a best before date but I’m thinking the product may have expired.

Anywho, it was a good gel but in my opinion it is not better than the Eco Styler Gel. So my search continues.

 

The two blocked jellies.
