Natural Hair Disasters! – Eco Styler gel Mishap


Dear KCCM,

I have a natural hair disaster from my past that I want to share with you.

I tried to use Eco Styler with Olive Oil gel to define my curls in a shingling-type style, like I saw in a Youtube tutorial from CoilsKinksCurls. I was hoping for a beautiful twistout look. 

The gel really defined the curl of my right side. My left side? Not so much. 

I’m so glad I did it on a Sunday, when I had time to fix it. Heaven forbid I left my house with that style and scared my neighbors and co-workers!
