EcoSlay is a brand that believes in using ingredients that are good for you. They believe that what you put on your body is just as important as what you put in it.

In today’s blog, we will be reviewing the Eco Slay Orange Marmalade Flaxseed and Aloe Curl Definer Gel.

If you’re looking for a product that will help you achieve frizz-free, well-defined curls, plus shine, then look no further!

This product uses all-natural ingredients like flaxseed and aloe vera to moisturize and nourish your curls, and orange marmalade to define curls product with a sweet orange scent.

I first learned about this product from @brunettewithbounce, so I had to buy it.

I’ve included the ingredients list as well as a description of the first six ingredients.

Why is Flax Seed So Great For Natural Hair?


Helps restore shine, detangle, and add moisture to your strands without leaving your hair hard.


Flax is an excellent source of protein, not only internally but externally.

Hold and definition

A great curl definer that moisturizes hair without creating stiffness or crunchiness, yet provides great hold. It is flake free.

Cost: $29

Shelf-life: 9-12 months. Needs to be stored in a dark place to preserve freshness.

Overall: This is mad good! I think it can be used for any porosity as long as you don’t have any issues with aloe. I would definitely buy again.

Where to buy: Amazon

“I truly couldn't have gotten through this without her knowledge, advice and support...after suffering from Hygral Fatigue and getting tons of advice @themestizamuse.”

“@themestizamuse: for ESSENTIAL information you will NEED TO KNOW in order to see results.”

See how easy the topics are to find on her page (a few posts screenshot)? There is no topic Verna hasn't covered.

“I was so excited to embrace my curls and take better care of them. As I started to dive in, I immediately became overwhelmed with the information.”

I read books and tried doing things because "that's what I'm supposed to do," but it didn't always work and I didn't understand why. I'm so grateful for Verna and her blog. Her info. actually helped me understand more of the science of why some methods helped and what products or ingredients to use and why. Anyone that compliments my hair and wants to start a curly journey, I tell them to start here. My hair is so much healthier and I'm so happy with it.
