As much as I wanted to love the SM Smoothie, it flaked with every gel I tried. And using it without gel was *not* an option for me.
But to answer your question, I liked the Garnier Pure Clean gel and the CURLS (for Target) Goddess Gel in the winter time, but I'm still searching for a good summer gel (I need super mega extra intense hold in the Alabama summers, but favor a medium-hard hold in the winter).

I'm currently trying out various Curl Junkie and Devacurl products.
