I need a strong hold gel

Heather0kayHeather0kay Posts: 667Registered Users Curl Neophyte
I am looking for an all natural (no plastics) strong hold, body building gel to use with my FSG. Most natural products I have tried are similar to FSG or they just don't hold. Any suggestions?

These all help my curl formation but have little hold:
DM A&H Curling Jelly
J Carter Condition&Sculpt
Aubrey MMagic, B5

This doesn't do a thing:
Max Green gel

    Thanks, but I found a strong hold gel from Hoity Toity. The CJ gels sound great but they have carbomber and from what I gather it is another form of plastic.

    I've used both, which is why I didn't recommend the Hoity Toity. If you want to try it, click my fotki.

    The Giovanni gel has very similar hold to BRHG, though I ultimately prefer BRHG (less product-y looking).
    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

    I like the Giovanni gel but it has plastic in it.

    HeatherOkay, I noticed you have broccoli oil in your signature, listed as something to provide shine and texture. I've never heard of that. How do you apply it? where do you get it?

    Some of the Curl Junkie products contain broccoli oil in them--the Smoothing Gellie, for instance.
