Default I like Joico ICEWhip. Is there something similar in a gel?

I'm getting down to the bottom of the can of mousse. Although I'm happy with the Joico, I'm still not a fan of mousse. I prefer gels or lotions, something I can transfer to a travel size bottle (I travel a lot) and have better control of the amount of product I dispense (that mousse keeps growing )

I still like Paul Mitchell Super Sculpt, but with so many choices out there I'd like to try something different.

Thanks.

Aura hypo-allergenic and Batia & Aleeza biomineral gel both have a very similar hold to joiwhip. They are liquidy and easy to distribute. Still, nothing compares to joiwhip in my book.

I just bought joiwhip yesterday and used it for the first time today! I think it gave me really good curls, but i can't be absolutely sure yet, since today is the first day I've gone curly since Wednesday. (Was in the mood where i didn't feel like dealing with my hair) Anywho, It seems to work well, but I was wondering if you pair it with anything, b/c my curls are not clumpy with this at all, kinda separate and puffy. If you can help, Thanks! ~~jax

I use the Brazil Nut Define and No Frizz cream from The Body Shop. If I'm using a gel or lotion, I just mix them together. When I use mousse, I use the cream first, then the mousse.

Now that I think of it, I don't really think it's the hold that I like about Joiwhip. I just like the way my hair feels and looks when I use it. I never thought about "hold". My hair does whatever it wants to Thanks for the suggestions, though. I'll look into them.

Jaxie, have you tried Recoil underneath Joiwhip? That works awesome (got the idea form the other Joiwhip fans on here), and I just found out for myself that Curl Junkie guava creme works fabulously underneath it!

Is joiwhip different from ICEWhip? Or is that just the local nickname? My can says ICEWhip and it has an orange dispenser.

I have the old Ice Whip, too. I think they just changed the name.

ETA: Oops .. just saw on another thread that apparently it was changed a little but not for that particular poster to notice anything different.
