Alternative to Biosilk rock hard gel

Hi curlies,

Biosilk rock hard gel is my HG. To bad I can't find it anywhere where I live these days. The store I used to buy it from doesn't carry it anymore. I have it on order from the states, but it may be a while.

Can anyone recommend another gel to use in the meantime? I am using some cheap Garnier crap (Garnier hard gel) and it is drying out my hair like you wouldn't believe! ugg!

Thanks in advance for our suggestions.
Someone on here - maybe SweetPickles - found a gel by Chi that she said is a good substitute for BRHG. I think that some have found Sebastian Hi-Contrast Gel to be a good hold gel, too.
CG-modified since 4/05
2b/3a and 3b on occasion!
Products: The hair aisle in my own cabinets.
Best definition winner: KCCC
Best volume winner: LOOB
Yes, that was me. The CHI Infra Gel is a decent substitute (it's made by Farouk as well, same people who make the Biosilk line). The other gel that I've found is a really close match - better IMO than the CHI - is Beyond the Zone Spike It gel from Sally's. It's their BRHG knock-off. I actually REALLY like that one, almost as much. I still prefer the BRHG, but the Spike It gives me consistent enough daily results that I can save my stockpile of BRHG for special occasions.

I know some BRHG devotees have liked Got2b Spiked Up Max-Control Styling Gel. I haven't tried it in several years, but I did find it gave results somewhat similar to BRHG. But it dried out my hair like crazy, so I don't consider it a good replacement for me.
Hair type: Completely confused: mostly 3a, some 3b parts, and even 2 in places; very fine and thin.
Products: Elucence clarifying & MBC; CK, F/X Curl Booster Fixative Gel (when I can find it)
Hi there! I found an alternative for Biosilk RHG at Sallys beuaty supply. It is by Volumax. It is about 6.00 for 13 oz. It is the Volumax MEGA 24 hour hold. It has different ingredients than BSRHG but feels exactly the same with the same consistancy too and my hair repsonds to it just like BSRHG! And with coupons it is way cheaper! Sallys has a website as well. Sign up for their copupons and they sometimes have free shipping.
Let me know if you find it works for you too!

I forgot to mention that a few of my curly friends have excellent luck with 2 other non-gel products. LOREAL out of bed texurizing paste; Garnier Fructis Style Fiber Gum Putty. I have used both with very good success. Unfortunately I have tons of hair and need to use a lot of product so I go through these two too quickly to be cost effective for me. The Garnier washes out with only water.. not drying, no crunch... however I can not get 2nd day hair with it like gels... but it is worth a try.
Good luck finding your hair HG!
I love Max Green Alchemy Sculpting Gel as an alternative to BRHG. I have repurchased many times and alternate days usually with BRHG because I don't want to be without either one.
