BRHG or AAC?

I am running out of the Aussie combo and I want to try something else. So here's my poll. Which do you like better? or how do they compare? Do you have any other gel suggestions (that I can find at CVS) for 2b/3a hair? :D
My hair is a mix of 2b/3a and even a bit of 3b thrown in! I would call my hair wavycelli. It curls most when I leave it alone after wet scrunching. My hair has a spring factor of about 2 or 3 inches and has a very silky, medium texture.

    I voted for BRHG. The Aussie combo doesn't have as much hold as I like.
    3a/b fine but lots of it!

    I love the Aussie Combo! It has just the right amount of hold for me and the crunch is easy to scrunch out.. I think BRHG would be too crunchy for me without adding something to it to soften it.

    I just started using the Aussie foam + leave in. It's light, holds nicely, gives me second day hair and my hair dries faster than with gels.

    I'm loving the Biosilk RHG because if I put it on over some of my daily condish, then I can rock 4th day hair, although the 4th day is usually an updo!
    I'm a 3b, with 3c underneath.

    Used to be CG, now I'm not. Using Suave Aloe & Waterlily shampoo & condish, JoiWhip, BRHG, Suave Aloe gel, Aussie Tizz No Frizz, and anything else that looks good!

    Hmmm, interesting. Maybe the stronger hold of the BRHG would be good for my hair. I'm still curious about what people have used or tried.

    Are these both clear, CG good gels (BRHG and Gel+Water)?

    And there is a lot of humidity here, so I was thinking BRHG for me, but then again I have definitely NOT mastered scrunching out any crunch.

    Okay, so I tried the BRHG. I love it!!! Granted I only used it one day but my hair looked totally different. I had less frizz (although after touching it too much and getting slightly rained on, some frizz formed) and my curls were a lot more defined. Instead of some clumped curls underneath I had more separated botticellis. It also lasted the night a lot better.

    I still like the aussie combo but it gives me a different look.

    They are all CG friendly. :D

    I voted for the Aussie Combo as that's my HG combo. I do use BRHG mixed with other things and usually get good results, though.

    I voted for the Aussie combo, though I also love BRHG...it's just that the Aussie combo is cheaper and so I use it more often.

    But, even better for me is a new combo involving both Aussie and BRHG that I have been trying recently!

    I apply one big glob of Aussie Dual Water + Gel to sopping wet hair, scrunch a bit with a microfiber towel, then plop for about 10 minutes. Then I added another smaller glop of the Aussie and diffuse for just 5 minutes. (The total amount of Aussie gel I use in this combo is about half of what I would normally use with Ava's combo). Then I add a quarter-sized glop of BRHG to damp hair, which adds definition, curl, and just a bit more hold (I need it now with the wind and snow in Michigan!). Sometimes I also add a pump of ISO bouncy creme to the BRHG, mix in my hand and then apply.

    Hope this helps!
