    I am a big fan of LAsport gel. It's a hard hold gel and works as well for me as the far more expensive BRHG. I bought a huge bottle for 3 dollars or so. You just can't beat it if you want a hard hold. I also tried the new Deva one but I seem to get a build up on my hair from Deva products. The LA gel has never done that. I don't know much about lighter hold gels. I just go to mousse if I want a softer hold.
    2b/2c ( weather permitting - 3a), fine texture but lots of it, colored and highlights, BSL.
    Experimenting w CG since Oct 2012

    Current rotation:
    cowash= TN
    AG Gel Mousse, LA Gel,
    DT = Coconut oil (love)

    Softee gel. It's a light hold but gets the job done.

    I love love love the Krystal Eco Styler Gel. It defines my curls & gives my hair hold without causing it to be stiff and crunchy. It actually makes my hair soft! and it has a clean smell to it. It's amazing!

    I use Aubrey Organics Mandarin Magic gel and Aubrey Organics b5 gel all over. As I am curling jelly and Eco styler olive oil version work great on the hair line for smoothing. Kiss My Face upper Management gel is great all over and on the hairline.
