Need a super strong hold gel

I have tried LALSG, GFPC, KCCC, DCAA, but none of these give me the hold that I need. I know Biosilk rock hard gelle is supposed to have an extremely hard hold, but are there others that have more hold than LALSG?
3a/3b, Low porosity, Medium Density
Low-poo: Shea Moisture Moisture Retention
RO: Matrix Biolage Conditioning Balm
Leave-in: Kinky-Curly Knot Today
Styler: Aussie Instant Freeze or LALSG
BRHG is the hardest hold I have found. It really is rock hard. The good news is, even though it's pretty expensive, you can mix a pea sized or so amount with another gel so it lasts a fairly good amount of time.
Alternatively, layering the cheaper stuff results in a harder hold. For example, applying another coat of gel after the previous gel has started to set up a bit. I do this often. I will apply gel before my plop, then again after I take the plop out, diffuse for a bit, then use more gel.
Some say the la looks super spikes gel is a cheaper alternative to brhg! Maybe give that a try!
3 a/b Medium texture/Normal porosity/Normal elasticity
Products I'm currently using:
Lo-Poo: KC Come Clean (1 x week)
Co-wash/RO: Suave Naturals Everlasting Sunshine
Stylers: UFD CM + BRHG

Hair dislikes: lots of protein, glycerin
I think someone on the boards before had said that Beyond the Zone Spike it Up gel was a cheaper alternative found at Sally's. The ingredients are:

The BRHG ingredients are :
Water (Aqua) , PVP , Acrylates , Steareth-20 Itaconate Copolymer , Propylene Glycol , Hydrolyzed Silk , Panthenol , Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate , Triethanolamine , Diazolidinyl Urea , Methylparaben , Propylparaben , Methylchloroisothiazolinone , Methylisothiazolinone , Fragrance , Hexyl Cinnamic Aldehyde , Benzyl Benzoate , Linalool , Gamma Methyl Ionone , Citronellol , Lilial , Hydroxy Citronellol , Geraniol , Eugenol , Blue 1 (CI 42090) , Red 33 (CI 17200)

I tried to highlight all the common ingedients and there seem to be a few. Beyond the zone also seems to have less ingredients (especially the color additives) and more protein. I guess its really up to your hair . Good luck
Lo-poorganix Shea butter shampoo
Co-wash: suave coconut
Rinse out:GFTN/GVP conditioning balm
Leave in: GF daily care spray leave in
Serum-like product: still need one
Gel:LA looks sport gel/ HESMU,GFPC
Oils: olive, coconut

I think I'm normal-overly porous, medium-thick hair(although I see fine hair too), love protein

+1 for Beyond the Zone Spike It. Just got some and it seems to be working as well as BRHG. They have a Spike It Cement that may be harder hold. Not sure if the cement is cg or not.
LA Looks Power Spikes!!! Sport gel is more medium hold for me. It is glycerin free too. I use the LALPS as an alternative to BHRG but use more than pea sized amount since I have a big ol' bottle of it!
3a/b, fine texture, low porosity, normal elasticity, mod-CG 7/11/11

Poo: KC Come Clean, SM Moisture Retention
CO: CJ Curl Rehab, CJ Argan & Olive Oil, Renpure Argan Oil, YTCucumbers, Sevi Pumpkin
Style: AIF, HESMU, Biolage gelee, KCCC
LOOB for second day hair

Like BS/ACV rinses, limit protein/humectants.
I think BRHG is super hard hold as well. I like to mix a tiny bit w/ another gel before applying.
Coarse texture, normal-high porosity, normal elasticity (Komaza Care), very weak waves
