I love Beyond the Zone Tame Your Curls Mousse. You should try it, it honestly gives me better hold than any gel I've tried. I noticed where you said you weren't sure the Biotera Gel gave you enough hold, I feel the same way, although I like it. I never thought mousse would work for me, I thought it was too light for my thick thick hair. Also, this mousse isn't crunchy or gummy in your hair. Just a thought...
