What's a good *medium* hold gel?

Something stronger than Angell but with less hold than BRHG!

What would you suggest?

ArcAngell is an obvious one that a lot of people like, but what else do you guys use?

    Herbal essence Totally twisted, that's in between for me, definitely more hold than Angell.
    I think after that it would be B&A gel
    2c/3a?
    Low porosity, medium texture.

    If it smells good put it in your hair, if it tastes good spit it out!

    La Bella gel (blue) and LA Looks (green) are both in between for me.

    Nexxus Phyto Organics Redefining Gel. It was a hot item on here for a while and now no one really talks about it. If I were still using gel, I'd probably use that one. Similar to Angell but more hold. Smells nice too.

    Sorry, but I have to ask what does BRHG stand for???

    I am looking for a strong gel that gives CRUNCH - do you think the BRHG will do that? Is it CG friendly??

    :) Thanx.

    Totally Twisted is a good medium hold gel. I also like the HE Body Envy gel but if you're looking for a lighter hold then maybe stick to the Totally Twisted.

    BRHG will give you a very strong hold with lots of crunch. You can purchase it at most Target stores or just about any salon.

    I use it daily a pea size amount mixed with a quarter size biolage. I mix it to cut down on the crunch a bit.

    How about Aussie Tizz No Frizz?

    3A, fine but thick, low porosity, low to medium resilience, protein sensitive but not to silk

    Favorites: Anything from Curly Kinks...their system is my new holy grail. Still liking Juice Organics Orange and TJ Refresh Conditioners as all purpose co-wash and rinse outs.

    I vote for Tizz No Frizz too! Very nice, soft hold. No crunch.

    Beware - I hate the smell while putting it on, but you can't smell it once its on.
