Default What's a good *medium* hold gel?

Something stronger than Angell but with less hold than BRHG!

What would you suggest?

ArcAngell is an obvious one that a lot of people like, but what else do you guys use?

Herbal essence Totally twisted, that's in between for me, definitely more hold than Angell.
I think after that it would be B&A gel

La Bella gel (blue) and LA Looks (green) are both in between for me.

Nexxus Phyto Organics Redefining Gel. It was a hot item on here for a while and now no one really talks about it. If I were still using gel, I'd probably use that one. Similar to Angell but more hold. Smells nice too.

Sorry, but I have to ask what does BRHG stand for???

I am looking for a strong gel that gives CRUNCH - do you think the BRHG will do that? Is it CG friendly??

Thanx.

Totally Twisted is a good medium hold gel. I also like the HE Body Envy gel but if you're looking for a lighter hold then maybe stick to the Totally Twisted.

BRHG will give you a very strong hold with lots of crunch. You can purchase it at most Target stores or just about any salon.

I use it daily a pea size amount mixed with a quarter size biolage. I mix it to cut down on the crunch a bit.

I vote for Tizz No Frizz too! Very nice, soft hold. No crunch.

Beware - I hate the smell while putting it on, but you can't smell it once its on.
