i've done the no 'poo thing before, but am going back to it now. i'm not a mousse person--it doesn't work for my hair. what's the best gel? i also just graduated from college so i'm on a limited budget.

    I like Suave gels and Herbal Essence gels are good too. I would suggest checking the product review board, for the latest and greatest. Good luck!!

    Many people like the LA Looks gels also.

    HE gels are good, and they are CG.

    cheapo option: La Bella Ice Hold Gel. It's about 3 bucks for a big ol' bottle, has good hold but not too much (don't be fooled by the "maximum hold" thing on the front, it doesn't really have a crunchy hold. ) I've been using it and I like it for my thick 3a hair.

    less cheapo option: FX curl booster gel. A little over 5 bucks for a smallish bottle. Good stuff, more hold than the la bella.

    I also like the HE Body Envy gel.

    I'm relatively certain that all of these are CG friendly.
