Default Replacement for Deva Foam

Has anyone had any luck finding a replacement product for Deva anti-friz volumizing foam?

I like the product, but it's expensive for it's size and doesn't really have much hold.

I'm trying out the Spiral Solutions gels, but more volume can be achieved by foams/mousses, can't it? Or maybe in combination with gels?

Tell me your thoughts!

I use to be addicted to this mousse/foam. I was soo bad that when I went on vacation to NY; I went to the Deva salon to buy some. I then shipped it back home, since all I had was a carry on. BUT I found a new LOVE… okra gel. I would say it would be your best replacement. If you like light, volume, and control then okra or FSG would be your choices. I found the SSCEJ to be pretty heavy, especially compared to the Deva foam. Okra gel is SUPER easy to make. I spent about $50 in all my additives, but this will last me a couple of years!!!. All I have to buy in-between is the okra.

Thanks for the advice!

I'm going to have to try making the okra gel. Several people seem to swear by it!

Quick unrelated question: I saved my signature and when I view it (like to edit it) it is still there, but it's not attached to my original post for this thread. Any clue why?
