Default Need a super strong hold gel

I have tried LALSG, GFPC, KCCC, DCAA, but none of these give me the hold that I need. I know Biosilk rock hard gelle is supposed to have an extremely hard hold, but are there others that have more hold than LALSG?

BRHG is the hardest hold I have found. It really is rock hard. The good news is, even though it's pretty expensive, you can mix a pea sized or so amount with another gel so it lasts a fairly good amount of time.
Alternatively, layering the cheaper stuff results in a harder hold. For example, applying another coat of gel after the previous gel has started to set up a bit. I do this often. I will apply gel before my plop, then again after I take the plop out, diffuse for a bit, then use more gel.

I think someone on the boards before had said that Beyond the Zone Spike it Up gel was a cheaper alternative found at Sally's. The ingredients are:
WATER ,PVP ,GLYCERIN ,ACRYLATES/STEARETH-20 ITACONATE COPOLYME ,PANTHENOL ,HYDROLYZED WHEAT PROTEIN ,HYDROLYZED WHEAT STARCH ,POLYSORBATE 20 ,PROPYLENE GLYCOL ,TRIETHANOLAMINE ,DIAZOLIDINYL UREA ,METHYLPARABEN ,DISODIUM EDTA ,FRAGRANCE ,LIMONENE

The BRHG ingredients are :
Water (Aqua) , PVP , Acrylates , Steareth-20 Itaconate Copolymer , Propylene Glycol , Hydrolyzed Silk , Panthenol , Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate , Triethanolamine , Diazolidinyl Urea , Methylparaben , Propylparaben , Methylchloroisothiazolinone , Methylisothiazolinone , Fragrance , Hexyl Cinnamic Aldehyde , Benzyl Benzoate , Linalool , Gamma Methyl Ionone , Citronellol , Lilial , Hydroxy Citronellol , Geraniol , Eugenol , Blue 1 (CI 42090) , Red 33 (CI 17200)

I tried to highlight all the common ingedients and there seem to be a few. Beyond the zone also seems to have less ingredients (especially the color additives) and more protein. I guess its really up to your hair . Good luck

+1 for Beyond the Zone Spike It. Just got some and it seems to be working as well as BRHG. They have a Spike It Cement that may be harder hold. Not sure if the cement is cg or not.

LA Looks Power Spikes!!! Sport gel is more medium hold for me. It is glycerin free too. I use the LALPS as an alternative to BHRG but use more than pea sized amount since I have a big ol' bottle of it!

I think BRHG is super hard hold as well. I like to mix a tiny bit w/ another gel before applying.
