looking for a gel that's easy to distribute

I have problems getting gel distributed evenly without having some sections with too much, others with not enough, etc. I need a gel that's easy to do this with even when I am half asleep early in the morning but that still has medium to firm hold. Ideally, I would like to be able to find it at a drugstore or health food store. Thanks in advance!

    I think the Naturell Hypo-allergenic gel is very easy to distribute and you can get that at Sally's. Also the Aveda Flax seed gel but I found the alcohol started to dry my hair.

    ITA with xcptnl...and would like to add, Biotera (naturelle) Styling gel also. IMO the Biotera is a tiny bit more hold value than the Hypo gel. I use these pretty interchangeably since they are so similar. I sub out with the Hypo when I'm not in the mood for smelling the Biotera, which can at times be a bit to "scenty"...

    Biotera gel is quite thin and easy to distribute, IMO. It's supposed to be a knockoff of Biolage gelee (there was a recent thread about these two).
    You can find it at Sally's Beauty Supply. It's quite inexpensive and it comes in a firm hold.

    Any gel with a liquidy/runny consistency. Naturelle hypo-allergenic, Ouidad Climate Control, Batia & Aleeza biomineral gel are all good ones.

It's not completely a gel, but it has some gel-like qualities.

    I love the B&A Bio-Natural Gel, but it is pricey. However, the bottle is HUGE, so maybe ounce for ounce, it isn't more than drugstore brands. :wink:

    thanks for the replies! I went to Sally's today and got the Biotera gel (just because it was a bigger bottle than the Naturelle Hypo), so we'll see what happens.
