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:
Boots pink
Recoil
Set It Free
Awe Inspiralling spray
B&A gel
Angell (but only with Boots or Recoil underneath)

Those were all styling products, but my HG conditioners are:
Devacurl One Condition
Curls Ecstasy
Jessicurl Too Shea
Jessicurl WDT

Oh and I almost forgot....HONEY!!
