glad to help. I also forgot to mention that many people love biosilk rock hard gelee which makes your hair " rock hard". Usually they combine it with another gel

Actually Mcfrizzy, we don't have LA Sports gel in Canada (at least I have NEVER been able to find it in Toronto). Canadians do not have access to a lot of products that are easily found elsewhere.

You CAN find Biosilk Rock Hard Gelee at some of the bigger SDM's. One of my favourite d/s hard holding gel's is Herbal Essences Set Me Up gel. If you have access to a Sally's, you can also buy the Ecostyler gel there. I hope that helps.

thanks Nicurly, I'll check SDM for the Biosilk and next time I'm at Sally's I'll check for the Ecostyler Krystal - I hope they have it.

I love Eco styler gel, have used it for four years but none of the Sallys have it anymore. I've been searching all over. I've just heard back from Sallys and they are working with the manufactor to get them to work within the Canadian Regulations (french must be on the label) and they hope to carry it in the future. My hair is depressed, I've been out of it a month and been trying to find something to replace it...
Chatters here in BC carrys Rock Hard Gelee and most salons in the area. Sallys does have a gel with max hold but it's a thin gel and takes quite a bit.
Good luck in your search and if anyone hears about Eco styler, let me know!
