BRHG and Aussie Instant Freeze gels. BRHG can be a little harder to find but I know I've seen it at CVS and Target. AIF is available almost anywhere that sells hair products! BRHG has excellent hold and AIF is my favorite protein and glycerin free gel thus far!

Suave Naturals Tropical Coconut Conditioner for co-washing, and LA Looks Curl Look Gel(which was discontinued). Will likely switch up to the LA Looks Sports Gel which I test-drove and tube of and like.
I'm considering the Shea Moisture shampoos too for when I need to replace my shampoo that I use from time to time.
For some reason I've always been a Garnier Fructis junkie, even pre-CG, and I STILL love most of their products. I used to love Triple Nutrition but I guess my hair got tired of it. Now I'm pretty much in love with Sleek and Shine The reformulated version is wonderful, my hair is SO moisturized and sleek and it's amaaaaziiing. Just might be my HG conditioner.
As for stylers, Garnier Fructis Pure Clean gel is pretty wonderful, I love it! My hair clumps and spirals in a way nothing else can get it to.
And lately I've been using Renpure Organics (the red bottle) as a low-poo, I haven't used it enough to be able to say how great it is or not but at the moment I'm really liking it!
