Gel Help - Sorry, repost from general discussion board...

I am just in desperate need of advice...so I'm posting on two boards.

I'm a 3a/3b, thick hair. The Angell is not working, not overly thrilled with Aura.... Curls spiral curl cream is good, but not sure if I could find better. I do like the [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Curly-Hair-Solutions-Curl-Keeper-p-28.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=curly-hair-solutions-curl-keeper]Curl Keeper[/buylink], I just want to find a good gel to use over it. I would LOVE if I could find a cheaper drugstore brand (I've been going a bit overboard on my product "trials"). Any help you could give? I need the security of a hold since I have a great amount of hair, but no crunch! Thanks

    Have you tried BRHG (biosilk rock hard gel)? That gives a firm hold, I hear.

    I thought about that - I just didn't know if it would be crunchy. Do you know if it's sold in the stores?

    I'm not sure if it's sold in stores or not. But I know a site where you can buy it. www.cosmeticimage.com (I didn't see it in curlmart) It's pretty cheap and the shipping is free after you spend $25 if you are worried about having to spend a lot. I know it's a pain the behind. As far as crunchiness, I think it just depends how much you apply. Some people that have tried it say that it leaves your curls soft, and some say there is a little crunch until it dries.
    hth :D

    I've bought it at CVS, too! But you can get good deals on eBay!

    I've seen it at Target (11.99), Albertsons (11.99) and Longs (10.99 I think). I want to try it, but I still have some Gel + Water, and need to use it up before I try something that expensive. I've heard good things also.
