Less expensive alternative to CJ Curl Rehab?

I am nearing the end of my tub of CJ Curl Rehab. I use it about twice a week right now. Usually every 5-7 days I use it following a PT mixed with equal parts coconut oil, and once a week I do a DT in the shower with it (without the CO). I usually use quite a bit, like nearly a palmful. My best hair days are these days (although have only had literally one great hair day with CG). If I have to fork over $20+ for a new tub, I will, but I am hoping that possibly there might be a less expensive similar product that someone has found?

    What is GVP CB? I would look it up, but this site is running super slow on my computer today.

    Yes, I am just looking for a good DT. That being said, my hair does seem to really like this stuff.
