Ecoslay Orange Marmalade Flaxseed and Aloe Curl Definer Ingredients
This is a forming humectant known for it’s moisturising properties. It helps to hydrate and soften the hair. It can also provide slip, making detangling easier.

Aloe vera is known for its soothing and moisturizing properties. It can help hydrate the hair and scalp, reduce inflammation, and promote healthy hair growth.
The Ecoslay Orange Marmalade Flaxseed and Aloe Curl Definer Gel is different from regular gels, It has a creamy gel texture. I have thick type 4 hair and believed that the The Ecoslay Orange Marmalade Flaxseed and Aloe Curl Definer Gel wouldn’t have a firm hold as it does for loooser curls. But, this couldn't be farther from the truth, I have had a wash and go’s last over 5 days.
This unique texture allows for long-lasting curls without weighing down the hair.
It has incredible slip, and its texture is like a light-defining cream. This makes it easy to apply and distribute evenly throughout your hair.
The Application Process
- I apply the gel on soaking wet hair along with the Ecoslay Rice Pudding Leave-In conditioner.
- I section my hair to get the greatest definition and focus on the ends, working my way up.
- I don’t shingle each strand to save time, I use the praying hands method to help define and clump the curls.
The gel makes my hair at the back look defined and bouncy. This part of my hair has tighter curls.
Whereas, the front of my hair doesn't have as much curl definition, and it often needs more products and manipulation.
It took me 45 minutes to diffuse and dry my hair. The results were bouncy, soft, defined, and shiny curls.
The Ecoslay Orange Marmalade Flaxseed and Aloe Curl Definer Gel doesn't leave my hair feeling crunchy, but it has the right amount of hold to keep my curls for the entire week. The light scent fades after the hair dries, which is good for people with sensitive noses.
The gel balances volume and stretch, so it shrinks less and needs less stretching.
The Ecoslay Orange Marmalade Flaxseed and Aloe Curl Definer Gel has become my go-to product. The gel works well all year round due to its nourishing properties.
The gel's natural ingredients are its best feature. Yet, refrigeration can be inconvenient on wash day and in colder months.
While it may be more expensive, the quality and performance make it worth trying at least once.
Styling Tip- I find that combining it with the Ecoslay Jello Shot Okra & Aloe Vera Gel allows for an extra crunchy hold for my tighter type 4 curls, which can be difficult to define at the crown of my hair.
