I have been using the pink Eco styler for a few weeks. So far, I like it a lot for a firmer hold. I had the clear one a while back and it was like liquid plastic, but the pink has better ingredients and doesn't dry so stiff. I think I am also a bit biased because I got HUGE tub of it and haven been applying it quite liberally, mixed with oil and/or leave in. As usual, if I use gel with a shingling or finger combing technique, I get crazy shrinkage. My shrinkage was so pronounced the other day it was as if I was rocking a new style entirely.
