|Eco Custard Conditioning, Shining & Styling Cream|
I received this natural hair product recently and was very eager to try it out. I’m a big fan of Eco Styler Gel and really wanted to see what this product would do. I have transitioning hair so I’m struggling with having the two textures of natural and relaxed hair while my hair grows out. I want to see how both textures will respond to the product. So, I decided to do a new transitioning hairstyle by doing a jumbo two strand twist-out.
|Eco Custard on Transitioning Hair|
This product has a custard/gel-like look but was actually very light on the hair. I applied the Eco Custard to dry hair found myself with almost wet hair after applied. I don’t think I needed this much product, it’s just really light-weight.

|My Hair after unravelling the bantu knots|
I separated my hair into about six large sections, applied the Eco Custard liberally to each section, twisted them, then bantu knotted the twists. I let my hair dry overnight then added a light oil to my hair when unravelling.
It’s never great to have people dive into my hair uninvited but I was so happy that this time my hair felt light, fluffy and soft as opposed to heavy and sticky. The product does contain hydrolyzed protein so I have to be careful that I seal in the water-based product with oil in the future to maintain some more moisture.

At the end of the day my hair held up pretty well (pictured below). Actually, i’ve never had such long-lasting build-up free results from any product I’ve ever used before since my hair doesn’t hold sets very well. The only con I can speak of is that the product wasn’t particularly moisturising and must be used with an oil right after application to seal in moisture and after unravelling your style to add shine.
All in all, this product gets a strong 4.5/5. I will definitely be purchasing it in the future.

UPDATE – ON NATURAL HAIR
On natural hair, this product works equally well. If you want a fluffy braid-out, this is the product for you. But, you won’t get days of hold and will probably have to re-twist nightly.
