suggestions for a gel I can buy at Trade Secret

In order to differentiate from all the other gel recommendation threads, I'd like to limit my request to something I can buy at Trade Secret.

I just got my hair cut to just above collar length. The style is a change for me; the layers are longer, and it needs to be swept back away from my face, in order to avoid the little Dutchboy look (no offense, of course, to any Dutch gentlemen on the board ). My hair is also a little less curly now, but more wavy. I use Joiwhip for the overall texture, and I'd like to find a gel just to hold the sides back. If it can hold and give back some curl, that would be a bonus. Thanks!
Abba Weightless Gel is probably my favorite gel to be found at TS. It is definitely curl-enhancing and has good hold. It's actually one of my HG gels.

Ahh, I read the part where you wanted some of your curl back and have hold, so that's why I thought it would be a good product from TS. It is curl-enhancing, which can sometimes also include volume. But if you're not using a diffuser then you probably won't notice much difference for volume. You can always return it if you don't like it. They're pretty good about that. And if you purchase from there on tuesdays before 11am, then you get 20% off your products.

Thanks! Yes, Tuesday mornings at TS, I know all about that! And hey, tomorrow is Tuesday! I didn't associate "volume" with "curl". I tend to think "fluff", instead. I can do volume of it's the result of defined curls, so I'll check it out tomorrow.
I like Graham Webb Making Waves gel. I get it at Trade Secret.
Couple of inches past shoulder length 3A. Shampoo every 3rd or 4th day w/ baby shampoo; Tigi Fashionista conditioner; back to Condition 3-in-1 mousse . Alternate days water rinse, conditioner and mousse.
Another rec for Abba Weightless. It does enhance volume for me, but in a good, defined-curls sort of way. Not at all in a fluffy/poofy way.
