I've only used SMU twice so far, but I still prefer RHG.

I have used both, and I like both, but I like that SMU gives a bit more clumping as opposed to the stringier pieces I get with BRHG, they bot seem to have about the same amount of hold for me, and the SMU is way cheapier. So my vote is for SMU

ditto that! plus i always got this rubbery thing going with RHG that i couldn't scrunch out, and i'm big into my hair feeling touchable. so it's SMU for me, all the way!

I really wanted to love Set Me Up because it is much cheaper than BRHG, but it is not all that. But I will continue to use it until my two tubes are gone... Damn pj made me buy two tubes!

I like BRHG better... SMU was decent but I have bad luck with HE gels; they all seem to make my hair a little plastic-y feeling, and I don't get as good curl formation.
