I've been using Loreal's Everstyle Curl Activiating Mousse to grand success, but my local drugstore no longer carries it; or Loreal has discontinued it. Either way...it's time to find something new. Ideally, I'd love to find something of the HolyTrinity of products:
2)doesn't cost a gazillion dollars
3)alcohol-free (not super important, but seems to work well for me--but open to suggestions)
I seem to do better with mousse--my hair is too fine to take anything heavier.
I soooooooo dislike it when they discontinue carrying or making a product that I like! It's happened more than a few times now. I feel for you. Guess you are just going to have to keep the search up. Darn.
Thankfully there is a lot of stuff out there. I hope you find one you like as much. I am still on the lookout for a local styling product (for slip) but at the moment have settled for less-than-pleased for now.
-Fine, ii (almost iii) thickness
-salon pintura and natural sun-made highlights combo
-CG since October 2007, rare occasional low poo.

I've been looking for the loreal curl defining gel from the same line. Both it and the mousse are still listed on the loeal website. I just found the gel at Walgreens, they were all on sale but a lot of stuff was, looked more like they were paring down their hair care aisle. I also saw the mousse at my local Publix so I don't think they're discontinued. Hope I like it cause I got 6 tubes of it for $18.
