HG Gel Discontinued - HELP on replacement.

HELP! I am running out of places to get my discontinued HG hair gel. L’Oreal EverStyle Strong Hold Defining Gel has been my EVERYTHING for years, and since I found out it was being discontinued, I have been stocking up on Ebay while also trying tons of new things to no avail. Does anyone have any suggestions? I am a 3b, with normal porosity, fine, medium density, shoulder length hair. My full routine is below. I have been trying new gels and they have been drying me out AND/OR not giving enough curl/body but I can’t figure out what is the trigger (maybe the Dimethicones?). Tried and failed are: LA Looks Mega Hold Gel, EcoStyler Krystal, Tresemme Tres Extra Hold Gel, Herbal Essences Totally Twisted Curl Scrunching Gel, DevaCurl Ultra Defining Gel and probably a few others that I have forgotten.

I am wondering if I should start trying mousses, but I style my hair when wet (I rinse/condition every day) and not sure how a mousse will work. Any and all suggestions are appreciated!

Thanks for any and all help!!

It makes me feel so defeated when something gets discontinued or changed. That said, maybe give a mousse like the Totally Twisted on a time when you have a little bit of time to experiment and see if it works. I don't know if you can tie your hair up if it doesn't but anything is worth a try at this point. I'm sorry, I know how frustrating it is.

hi there, I definitely feel your pain about a HG either being discontinued or switching formulas. I have more 3a hair but i use 2 gels to get the look i like. I use Ouidad heat and humidity gel after a leave in, then I mix LA Looks sport gel (i know you tried the mega hold but the sport might be different for you) with a little bit of water and scrunch that in. I wish you luck in your quest!!

Worrying doesn't take away tomorrow's troubles, it takes away today's peace

Best combo so far:
SheaMosture Curl and shine milk , Ouidad heat and humidity gel
Have you tried L'Oréal Mega gel? I like it as a hard hold gel.
