I can't comment on the Curly Hair Solutions products, because I have never used them.
However, I have the Herbal Essence products in my cupboard right now. I don't think the conditioner is CG because from what I can remember from looking at it in the store it has dimethicone in it (NOT the water soluble kind).
The Totally Twisted mousse I have right now, its CG and works well. I used it over the weekend and it gave me soft hair but didn't have a lot of hold. I am used to using gel to get a strong hold and this didn't give me that kind of result. However, my hair was tamed and soft. It had some frizz, but I really enjoyed how soft it was.
The Totally Twisted gel is the exact gel I used when I went CG. It works well and smells good. I have since starting using Herbal Essence's Set Me Up Max Hold Gel because I like a little bit more hold than Totally Twisted gave me. Overall, it is a good gel, cheap and CG approved!
