Default Gel recommendations

Ok, so as a PJ, I am continuously looking for a product that works better than any of the others I've tried. In terms of gels, I have tried HE TT, BE, SMU, Pantene curls gel, and Suave Max Hold 8. HE TT is hands down the best. I would love a gel that offers a bit more hold, but I hate globby gels (like BE and SMU). TT has a consistency that I really like--not watery, but definitely thin rather than sticky. Any gel recs with that thinner consistency?? Thanks in advance! :-)

ISO daily styling gel doesn't even feel like gel, its smooth and had good hold

Aura hypo-allergenic has a very thin consistency. I would say it has medium hold.

Aveda Flax Seed Gel is more of thinner consistency as well. I also think the moptop gel is a bit thinner.

The Mop Top does have a thinner consistency than some of the gloppier gels, but I don't think it has much hold without adding a stronger gel to it. The Fuzzy Duck gel is a little stronger. I'm loving B&A gel right now -- it has a runny consistency but has been giving me good hold and great shine.

I love Graham Webb "making waves" gel. It's just the right consistency for me. You will get a little cast (crunch) that you just very easily scrunch out. Oh, and it's clear.

It's the only gel I use now.

Thanks for all of the responses!! I am excited to try some of these out. Do any of you know where I could find the Aura hypoallergenic or the ISO gels? Thanks :-)

Don't know about ISO, but Aura is found at Sally's. Sometimes the brand says "Naturelle" instead of Aura, but don't worry it's the exact same thing.

Thanks Bailey and JuicyTube! I get tomorrow off for the Fourth, so I might just be making a trip to satisfy my PJ! :-)
