Good Drugstore CG Friendly Products?

I've been looking for a thread of this but I can't seem to find one! So please add anything you think should be here!

DevaCurl is fantastic but not exactly in my price range, my huge 'babysitting after school' income is not forgiving to my hair needs...

So here is my list:

Conditioners:
Garnier Fructise Triple Nutrition Conditioner (good for LO)
Suave Naturals (good for Co-Wash, are all the scents CG friendly though?)

Gels:
LA Looks Sport Gel (good, but don't forget to scrunch out the crunch)
Drugstore brand Aloe Vera Gel


Please add everything you can think of! Thanks a million :-)
Someone help me make my hair look like Merida from Brave that's all I want.
Co-wash conditioners

The last time I read the ingredients lists (which was probably in the last month or two), provided that the lists were up to date, all of the Naturals line of Suave's conditioners were CG.

You might also want to check out the VO5 conditioners. I particularly like the Kiwi-Lime.

Conditioners to use as conditioners

The Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition conditioner is quite good IMO. However, you want to also consider their Body Boost, which is especially nice if you find detangling difficult. Also, Sally's GNC Conditioning Balm is very well thought off, as is the Walgreen's version (of Matrix Biolage Conditioning Balm).

Gels

In addition to the LA Looks Sports Gel (which is higher in protein than some), you might want to consider the spray gel put out by Garnier Fructis, or Herbal Essences Totally Twisted Gel.

One of my favorite cheap gels, and it is dirt cheap, is homemade flaxseed gel. You can find recipes and variations for it in the Recipes section of these boards. I like to use 2 tablespoons of flaxseeds, 2 cups of water, and a scant pinch of epsom salts; then after cooking I add a glob of Fruit of the Earth flaxseed gel, 2 or 3 drops each of essential oils of lavender and rosemary, and 3 drops of grapefruit seed extract (not an essential oil) used as a preservative.
Peace,
Morgan

Baby Fine 3B, low porosity, normal density and elasticity
CGing since July 2008
Homemade flaxseed gel- AMAZING! Add some agave or honey for hold. Or just use the gel on top. So cheap (I bought my flaxseed in the bulk section at a discount grocery store called Winco).

ETA: I use this in 2 ounce portions and keep in the fridge in between uses. I freeze the reamining portions. I accidentally left it out once and it smelled bad after 3 days.

Ecostyler is available in the drugstore but cheaper at Sally's.

Do you have access to Sally's Beauty Supply? Or you can order online.
So many great products there. Some are very cheap. My daughter is using a protein conditioner that's 10$ for a gallon and her hair looks great. She doesn't color or anything so her hair is in great condition.
