looking for cone-free substitute for my tresseme gel

Hi guys! I'm new here :)
I've been using tresseme bouncy curls defining gel, which I find works pretty well for me.
I am trying to find a silicone-free replacement for this, and was wondering if anyone else also liked this gel, and found a similar one that is cone-free.

otherwise, any other gel suggestions would be great!

thanks!

    I use Garnier Fructis Curl Shaping spray gel. I spray it into my hands and apply it that way. I never tried the Tresemme gel, but I know the Garnier gel is CG and works quite well on my hair.
    :batman: 2b/cFi, low density, normal porosity, high elasticity

    Low-poo
    : Trader Joe's Tea Tree Tingle
    Conditioner
    : Suave Naturals (whatever scent I have on hand)
    Styling
    : Paul Mitchell Round Trip, Tresemme Climate Control Finishing Spray

    I'm a hair minimalist: the less time I spend on my hair, the better.

    When I looked up the ingredients on the gel it has a Peg cone in it which should be water soluble. and now I want to try it lol
    2c/3a?
    Low porosity, medium texture.

    If it smells good put it in your hair, if it tastes good spit it out!

    But since the OP asked I like herbal essences body envy, LA looks sport gel, and IC fantasia gel. I haven't tried this one as of yet though.

    Everyone isn't into CG. NC.com is for everyone with natural curls and waves, regardless of the approach we take to haircare.

    Also there are still plenty of people marketing cone filled products specifically to curly hair. In fact, cones seem to be even more prevalent now than they did two years ago, when I started. For instance, I don't remember their being so commonly found in shampoos.
    Peace,

    Oh I just meant that the people in curlmart must have thought it was a good gel for curlies and would sell well, not necessarily that everything in curlmart is CG. I know that. :)
