    Posted: Aug 04 2007 at 12:41am
Okay, all of you Surge 14 users might be feeling a little unsure of what to do now that the fate of the company is very uncertain.  I've been doing a little searching and researching and I may have found two substitutes for Surge.  Keep in mind that I have not used Surge or any of these replacement items.  This recommendation is based solely on ingredient lists so you will have to decide if substituting these products will suffice.
 
Surge 14 Hair Revitalizer - Ingredients:
Water, cetrimonium chloride, propylene glycol, muccopolysaccharides, hydrolyzed keratin protein, hydrolyzed vegetable protein, polyquarternium-7, biotin, fragrance, methylparaben, aloe barbadensis gel, propylparaben, citric acid, sodium PCA
 
(ingredients similar to Surge 14 highlighted in red)
 
Top Choice Substitute:
Aphogee Pro-Vitamin Leave-in Conditioner $4.00 - (ApHOGEE Pro-Vitamin Leave-In Conditioner) Ingredients:
Water, polyquaternium-11, amodimethicone, panthenol, hydrolyzed hair keratin, hydrolyzed glycosaminoglycans (hydrolyzed muccopolysaccharides), sodium-coco collagen amino acids, cocoyl sarcosine, wheat germ fatty acids, linoleic acid, linolenic acid, arachidonic acid, sorbitol, wheat germ oil, jojoba oil, tocopherol, sulfur, tallowtimonium chloride, citric acid, polysorbate 80, nonoxynol-10, aminomethyl propanol, dimethicone copoylol, acetamide MEA, PPG-2 methyl ether, fragrance, quaternium-15, methylparaben.
Pro: this product contains oils and vitamins not found in Surge 14; contains the muccopolysaccharides found in Surge; contains sulfur
Con: this product contains cones
 
Second Choice Substitute:
Fantasia IC Hair Strengthener Treatment $7.00 - (Fantasia IC HAIR STRENGTHENER Treatment - 6oz spray)  Ingredients: Water, polyquaternium-11, vitamins B1, B5, niacin, biotin, ethoxydiglycol, magnesium sulfate, propylene glycol, chitosan, hydrolyzed silk, cocodimonium hydrolyzed keratin, aloe vera gel, dimethicone, copolyol, panthenol, quaternium-15, polysorbate 20, fragrance.
Pro: this product contains vitamins not found in other 2 formulas and silk protein, contains chitosan which is an aminopolysaccharide
Con: this product does not contain muccopolysaccharides; contains chitosan which is derived from shellfish (allergy alert!); contains cones but near the end of ingredient list
 
I hope this is helpful to anyone out there looking for the Surge products.  Good luck!

Another good option is Gueye Leave in Conditioner and the Braid Spray ( they have the smae ingrediantes ). I think it might even be better only because it has less chemicals and more essential oils and vitimins ingrediantes than Surge 14. The Gueye ingrediantes are: In exact order as the bottle
Deinozed water, vegetable gycerin. Extracts of : Matricaria, sage, nettle, rosemary, aloe, tyhme, lemongrass, comfrey, yarrow, horsetail, kelp, fennel, parsley, peppermint, quaternium - 15, capsicum, tea tree oil, avacado oil, olive oil, castor oil, wheat germ oil, jojoba oil, lavender oil, tocopherol ( vitimin E ), safflower oil, retinyl palmitate ( vitamin A ), polyquaternium 10, alfalfa Extract, panthenol 9 vitiamin B-5 ), Biotin, Apple cider.

I don't use surge, but I think it is wonderful that you went out of your way to help the ladies find subs that are very similar to the orginal product.
 
Ldy, which would you say would be the most efficient?

Of the two items, I thought the Aphogee Leave-in was closest to Surge.  It also includes a small amount of sulfur which is always beneficial to hair growth.  I'm just trying the Aphogee now so I'll report my experience.

Great research and that was sooo nice, thats how i first came onto using aphogee pro-vitamin--looking to simplify the regimen, plus it has a low ph and isnt as drying

another one, is motions nourish leave-in
It smells better than aphogee, but doesnt have a low ph,its cheaper though, but its kind of like a watered down version of aphogee provitamin

I used Aphogee and Ic Leave in prior to finding surge.  They are pretty good.  I think I'm going to find the Gueye Leave-in.  Right now, I've been simply using

CARE FREE CURL - Instant Moisturizer with glycerine and protein.. lol.

ingred:  water, propylene glycol, glycerin, cetyl alcohol, stearalkonum chloride, methylparaben, propylparaben, parfum, hydrolyzed wheat/protein, dimethicone, silica
