GVP balm has tons of slip for me, and it's available at Sally's for under $10. It's supposed to be a dupe of the Matrix Biolage conditioning balm, but I actually like the GVP version much better. My absolute, no questions asked, HG is Curl Junkie rehab. It's a DC (although you can use it as often as you want) and unfortunately you do have to buy it online and it isn't cheap, but it is just something else! Also I noticed that if I seal my hair with even just a dab of coconut oil, tangled just don't happen.
