If you are looking for hold, then CJ PPgel in my opinion is a med/soft hold gel. CJ curl queen is a medium while Biosilk is definitely a hard. The new deva gel (ultra defining) is a hard hold gel I heard. Not sure if you can get samples of those. If you want to pay for the samples and shipping, I could send you some(of the Biosilk, CJ PPgel and Deva gel)to try. How are you liking the AO GPB conditioner?
