Looking for great drugstore products

I need some new products to try. I really need a new cheap conditioner and stylers. We are going out of state so need it to be from somewhere like Walgreens, Ulta, Walmart, or Whole Foods.

Thanks in advance,

    For cheap conditioners I like V05 Champagne Kiss, Strawberries&Cream, and Suave Coconut. A lot of people here rave about Suave Milk&Honey, but I've never tried that. I like White Rain hairspray (I use the one in the pink and gray bottle - Extra Hold I think). I use Queen Helene Cholesterol deep conditioner, and love how soft and shiny it makes my hair.

    For conditioners I love all of v05's like Tea therapy, champagne kiss, and kiwi and lime.
    For gel, I love herbal essence's gels: totally twisted, body envy, and set me up.

    I just bought some Garnier Sleek and Shine Leave-in and so far it's given me some nice curl definition and softness. I'll have to see how it lasts and feels as the day goes on but I know a lot of people on this board like it.

    They also seem to like the L'Oreal Out of Bed styling stuff but so far that's been a bit too producty feeling for me.

    Although more expensive I still like my Tigi Curls Rock Amplifier the best overall.
    No more PJ tendencies. Tigi Curls Rock Curl Amplifier is the best thing to make my curls rock all day! Next best are KCCC and Re:Coil +HE TT Gel.

    From Ulta, I really like the LaCoupe Shine and Smooth conditioner in the orange bottle. The color one (purple) is supposed to be good too, but I've never tried it.

    Anyone know where I can get some Biosilk Rock Hard Gelee? Hubby apparently has started liking it and forgot to tell me it was almost empty.

    Thanks for the replies so far, I'm making a list and going to go on a hunt this afternoon!

    Ulta carries BRHG, I'm pretty sure.

    While at Ulta, you could pick up the non-sulfate shampoo (if you use shampoo) and conditioner from the Activate line. They are both excellent products. The conditioner is about the most moisturizing condish you can get without ordering online.

    I'll echo the love for the Herbal Essences gels. Totally Twisted is good for those who like a soft hold with minimal crunch. I need more hold, and both Body Envy and Set Me Up work nicely.

    I have the entire Activate line and normally it works pretty well for me, but its starting to get colder here and my hair is absolutely freaking out.

    I'll certainly have to try all the gels.
