time for a new gel...again

OK, summer is coming - heat, humidity etc. I need a new gel. I have been using BRHG and HE Set Me Up, but not sure I'm thrilled with them. Any suggestions? I was thinking of trying LA Looks Mega Mega Hold, but can't find many reviews on it. My concern with that is flaking - I can use a conditioner to manage crunch. Also, I was thinking of Ouidad Climate Control.

Any suggestions? I have lots of 3B hair and need hold, but would prefer less crunch if possible.

Thanks!!

    Another gel you could try if you haven't already is Graham Webb Making Waves Curl Defining Gel. I just started using this again, and I remember why I liked it so much. Great hold, no crunch. I like BRHG but the stiffness is a little annoying some days. I can never get the HE gels to work the way others seem to.
    And you know, I'm really not totally sold on the sandwich idea. They're kind of traditional, I know I said that, don't question me about that, but they aren't really all that chic, you know? --fig jam

    Thanks - is this an online only gel?

    I buy it at Trade Secret/Beauty Express. I think it's at Ulta too.

    Try it. You will LOVE it! It has great hold, boosts the curl and the crunch factor is pretty low. Beware of the price...but a bottle does go a long way. Oh and the smell is delicious!

    OK, you convinced me, I'll try it. I guess online only though, right?

    ISO daily styling gel is a good one, somewhat similar to SMU

    Well you can see if there is Ouidad salon near you, otherwise yes you will have to order it online.
