Can anyone please recommend a curl gel instead of Curl Junkie's Aloe Fix?

I sort of started using the Curly Girl method about 6 months ago and bought a large tub at the time. Nearly at the end now but had to discover that I can no longer get it in the uk (not without paying postage from the USA anyway, and I draw the line at �60...)
I'm gutted, the stuff is a total lifesaver and has totally transformed my hair!
Anyone able to recommend a replacement please?

I like boots own curl creme it's a pink tub and only about £1.50 and mine lasts me about a month

You can actually use aloe Vera gel from Holland and Barrett. I use it and it does work and isn't expensive!

Another vote for the umberto Gianni pink jelly stuff, it's very good and about a fiver.

Bumble and Bumble curl cream, followed the defrizz. It's a bit pricey but lasts forever. Won't dry curly hair out smile

Thank you all! I'm probably going to end up trying them all as long as they are not too pricey... I'm a bit obsessed with finding the perfect hair produch blush
scarlet does the aloe vera gel make your hair crunchy at all (shudder)?
