Default Less expensive alternative to CJ Curl Rehab?

I am nearing the end of my tub of CJ Curl Rehab. I use it about twice a week right now. Usually every 5-7 days I use it following a PT mixed with equal parts coconut oil, and once a week I do a DT in the shower with it (without the CO). I usually use quite a bit, like nearly a palmful. My best hair days are these days (although have only had literally one great hair day with CG). If I have to fork over $20+ for a new tub, I will, but I am hoping that possibly there might be a less expensive similar product that someone has found?

Are you just basically looking for a good DT? You can use GVP CB and add coconut oil and honey to it.

you can buy curl junkie products on aveyou.com. they ALWAYS have a coupon. i THINK the current ones are:

FIVE -- 15% off any size order
BEAUTY25 - $25 off orders $100 or more

shipping is a flat rate $5 for orders under $50, $1 for $50 and up.

also, curlmart carries curl junkie, they frequently have sales.

and, the curl junkie website has sales 2x/yr -- black friday and easter sunday.

What is GVP CB? I would look it up, but this site is running super slow on my computer today.

Yes, I am just looking for a good DT. That being said, my hair does seem to really like this stuff.
