Drugstore Mousses/Gels?

Someone told me that Aussie and herbal essences mousses were basically the same because they are owned by the same company....
and it seems they were right. Totally Twisted has the same ingredients as the Aussie one.
When I run out of mousse I will just have to see which one is cheaper and buy that one. LOL.

any thoughts?

I loved the Aussie tizz no frizz the best, I just can't find it anywhere now.
Second I like the Body envy gel, which is becoming harder to find around here.
Thirdly the Set me up if I want a lot of hold.

Unfortunately I haven't had luck with the LaBella, especially now that local stores are finally carrying the pink one!

Right now I'm using Long Aid Activator. It's about $6 at Walgreens, but it's a huge 32-oz tub. This is really good, too, but I hate to have to stick my fingers in it and scoop it out.

My favorite is still Biotera Styling Gel from Sally's. (12 oz for $6.49 or, even better, 33.8 oz for $9.99) I like that it comes in a bottle, so it's much easier to use.

HEBE has been my HG for quite some time now but it seems like I cant find it anywhere.

So now Aussie Instant Freeze is my go to. Same ingredients same company same results.

Ive had okay luck with the HESMU gel and i didnt like the totally twisted. TT just wasnt enough hold for me or something.

Someone else mentioned it in a post and I checked it out. Pantene, Aussie, and Herbal Essence all owned by Procter & Gamble. So pretty much the same stuff in all the gels maybe a minor difference here or there.
