angel vs arc angel?

elizardelizard Posts: 284Registered Users
i'm wondering about the consistency of arc angel. i like the thin consistency of angel, but i'm trying to get away from anything with polyquats in it. i heard that biotera has a similar consistency and still has decent hold, but it has polyquats too. any thoughts?

    I think arc is slightly more liquidy and hold then angel...I really like it in lower dews, which in south FL is like 50s....lol...in summer it gives me glycerin induced frizz...been my main gel for the last few weeks...

    No I haven't tried the foam yet. I have a hunch that it would work in my hair, but polyquats have been giving my hair a weird soft coated feeling, so I'm trying to stay away from them.

    I dont find biotera to have any hold. I dont find the ultra defining gel to be anything like BHRG. It defines like nothing I have tried before but has a light/med hold. Its great for me in the winter when I dont need much hold but come summer I would consider using BRHG over it if needed.

    For me it takes a lot of arc angel and my hair feels producty from it to get hold. Check the swap boards someone had the big 33oz for 15.00 for the arc angel.
