AOMM is a clear jelly. I don't really know how else to describe its consistency. It's not as thick as a gel. It doesn't have much hold, although it has enough hold for my hair. I primarily need frizz control rather than hold for my curl pattern.
I don't know of another product like it. When I first bought AOMM, I had no idea what to do with it and it sat it my closet for awhile. I began to use it by mixing it with thicker stylers to make them easier to distribute and to soften the hold a bit - BRHG, CJ Aloe Fix, KCCC. I love using it that way, but I've also had great success with it as a light hold styling product on its own. It seems to add moisture to my hair so that my curls form better.
