Cream Gel?

Does anyone know anything about Garnier Fructis brilliante shine cream gel? It looks like it might be CG..I didn't see any cones in there. I tried a little when I got out of the shower this morning (wanted to try it out before I used it on my hair for New Years Eve) and it worked pretty well. it didn't make it stiff and crunchy like gel has. My curls felt firm...if that makes any sense and pretty well defined. On the bottle it's listed as strong hold so I was a little worried about that producty look and feel, but it looks pretty good. I also bought Tresemme' touchable curls. It's a shaping milk. If these things are consitant and don't cause buildup...I may get rid of all gels forever.

    I'm pretty sure whatever gel I have used had some alcohol in them too. I condition ALOT, and I put coconut oil in my conditioner, I also got this great oil my new hairdresser sold me. I leave a little conditioner in and I put the oil on my hair before anything else anyway...so I'm not too worried about the alcohol

    I used it and got HORRIBLE frizz. It made my hair soft and shiny, but it doesn't stand up to any kind of humidity. If you live in a dry state, it might work well though.
