Default BRHG/Solid Water combo - finally I'm getting some gel love!

I've been so frsutrated as one gel after another stopped working well for me. For awhile B&A on towel-dry hair did, then...didn't. The new GF gels flopped as all their gels do for me. HE new gels -- nothing. Finally, I just looked around in the shower, spied my BRHG -- which holds well, but gives me skinnier curls than I like -- and combed it through very wet hair. Up in my turbie, then I scrunched in Redken Solid water (lots of glycerin, great for curl formation, not so great against humidity).

Great results! Bigger, clumpier curls, and a lot of softness. Held all day, even after walking to work in the wind. Lots of compliments and even 2nd day hair after I applied my usual GF leave-in with wet hands. I'm a happy girl.

Now, if only I could actually buy BRHG here! Nope, has to be orderd online. But after a year on an exhaustive hunt for gel I could buy locally, I guess I'm just going to suck it up & pay the shipping.
