CHI Infra Gel vs. Biosilk RHG

Just picked up some CHI Infra Gel from TradeSecret. I really went intending to buy some more RHG but saw this on the shelf above the RHG.(They are made by the same company). CHI has almost the same ingredients as BRHG (the first 5 are the same, I think). CHI's are:

Water, PVP, Acrylates/Steareth-20, Copolymer, Propylene Glycol, Hydrolyzed Silk, Panthenol, Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, Fragrance, Triethanolamine, Diazolidinyl Urea, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Methylcloroisotiazolinone, Methylisothiazolinone, Ceramic (what's with that?)

Anyway, I know I said the PJ in me was dead, what with discovering RHG. But I love the scent of CHI (I used to use CHI when I straightened my hair). And, although one of the great things of BRHG is the lack of any strong scent, I couldn't resist. I thought other lovers of the CHI scent might be interested. Oh--the cost-- $13 for 8.5 ounces of the CHI. BRHG is, I think, $11 for 6 ounces, which I think makes the BRHG more expensive if I have done my math right. Not that I would ever disparage BRHG. And not that I know if the CHI will work as well either.

Ooh! Ooh! I hope you try it soon and have miraculous results. I am a BRHG fan, but I would love a cheaper alternative (even if it's just a few bucks!).

I'm bumping this thread because I just bought the CHI Infra Gel today, as I need a hard-hard hold and it was cheaper (on clearance!) than the BRHG today at Kroger. I have been wanting to try the BRHG for a very long time, but opted for the less-expensive choice. Anyone else used this CHI stuff? I'm utterly intrigued and I can't wait to use it tomorrow.
