Haven't tried Mop Top
The Arc Angell
is supposed to have more hold. The regular did nothing for my hair, nothing. It was like water with build up. I really don't like Deva that much. Their conditioner is good, but the products just didn't do much for me.
I really like Jessicurl, a lot. I started with the sample pack and I've repurchased and want more, but like you, I'm always looking for cheaper solution.
A gel I also use is AG Liquid Effects. It has more crunch to it but it's thin and disperses easily. It's best in really wet hair.
Here is a list you might try
Hair: 3a mostly
mod CG Fall 2008
co/wash - Suave Naturals or VO5, Naked Naturals shampoo from CVS - can't find anymore, replacing with JCHCC
Condition: Aubrey Organics HR, Moisture Maniac, Love Jessicurl deep treatment and her stuff!
Leave in's: Aveda Be Curly, Jessicul RR and CC, quarter and nickel amounts, AG liquid effects, KCCC (forever to dry), leaving behind the Aquage defining gel
Want to try some of Sally's generics
