While reading, I came across the shocking revelation that my gel could have 'cones too! no duh....
Anyway, the gel I am I using is FULL of 'cones. I need some reccomendations for a gel I could try from Walmart or Walgreens. I am going shopping later today...
2c, I think. Dyed, black. Going brown again soon.

CO: Suave Naturals, coconut this time. Scents vary.
Coditioner: Vive pro, pink.
Gel: Herbal Essence Body Envy
Diffuse occasionally.

    The Herbal Essences line of gels is CG. There's Herbal Essences Totally Twisted, Set Me Up (spray gel), and Body Envy. A lot of people like SMU or BE, and TT fans are fewer and farther between.

    I like the HESMU, it comes as a spray and also in a tube.

    I think all the L.A. Looks Gels are CG as well, I've used the Sports one (blue), Curls one (aqua) and Mega Mega Hold (yellow).
    3A/B - low-normal porosity - med to coarse texture

    Co-Wash - As I Am Coconut Cowash
    RO - GVP Cond. Balm, Tresemme Naturals, Yes to Carrots Nourishing, AO Honeysuckle Rose
    LI - Hollywood Beauty Olive Cream Headdress
    DT - Hollywood Beauty Olive Cholestrol, SM Raw Shea Butter Deep Treatment
    Stylers - BRHG (old formula is my HG, but the new one has silicones)

    Trying out - MGA Sculpting Gel, LA Sports Gel, Got2b Spiked Gel, Got2b Glued

    Love love love the LA Looks Curl gel. It's super cheap and I adore the smell of it (and it's got decent hold... about on par with HETT).
    CG/Mod CG (soap bars) since 8/12/08
    CO wash/Cond: Kathymack & Flowermoon Castille soap bars, V05 Chamomile Tea, Suave Ocean Breeze, Biolage Conditioning Balm
    Styling loves: DIFFUSING! CK, KCNT, KCCC, FOTE (on dry hair only), Re:coil, Proclaim gel
    Not sure about: Boots, Tweek, KBB Milk, DMHJ
    HATE: plopping, FOTE on wet hair, BRHG

    I got the Body envy one, because it said weightless hold, and the SMU had maximum hold...

    I agree that HESMU is really nice. I like it quite a bit. But I just realized that I need a stronger gel to pair with my curl pudding, and consequently just switched to BRHG (biosilk rock hard gellee). It dries a little crunchy, but it's easy to scrunch out the crunch once it's dry. My hair isn't the least bit sticky or hard and doesn't look dirty. Lots of curlies swear by it. I bought my bottle at ULTA for about $14. I don't know if Walgreens or Wal-Mart carries it.
    hair type: 2B/3A
    low poo: Elucence moisture; Elucence clarifying (after swimming)
    condish: CJ smoothing; CJ argan; CJ repair me; CJ curl rehab
    winter/spring styling: CJ Beauticurls leave-in + Curly Kinks coil jam + Ouidad mongongo oil; or CJ leave-in + SpiralSolutions CEJ & FHG
    summer/fall styling: CJ CCCC lite + CIAB + Curl Queen
