Your experience: I have used the Eco Custard Cream for my flat twist outs and had excellent results. I used the product along with jojoba oil, coconut oil and argon oil, which left my hair smelling wonderfully and feeling soft. In fact, my hair was probably too soft because I couldn't keep my hands out of it! The product has minimal hold but I was not looking for a product with a strong hold. The only downside to the product is that my second day hair felt quite dry. However, with this knowledge, I made sure to moisturize my hair well before bed the next two nights (with a combination of the product and water). Magically, my hair came back to life :). I have added this product to my staples.
Would you recommend to a curlfriend: Yes! I would definitely recommend this product to a curlfriend. I received great results and the product is reasonably priced. I was able to find an 8oz size Eco custard cream and an 8oz Eco Gel for $3.99 total at my local beauty supply store.
How many curls overall (on a scale of 1 to 5, with 5 being the kitties titties!): 4. I would give the product a 4 instead of a 5 due to the ingredients.
