I voted the first option. Anything that consistently gives me good hair days and provides 2nd day or more hair is an HG for me. But also what I consider a good hair day is when a product gives me good curl-enhancement, good curl formation, nice clumping with no stringiness, and a natural hold/feel without any stickiness or producty feel.
My HG's are:
Set It Free
Awe Inspiralling spray
Angell (but only with Boots or Recoil underneath)
Those were all styling products, but my HG conditioners are:
Devacurl One Condition
Jessicurl Too Shea
Oh and I almost forgot....HONEY!!
