Humectant-free styling product?

I am looking for a CG friendly gel or mousse that doesn't have any humectant. Do these exist?

Closest I've found are a couple of mousse that have propylene glycol - is this a strong humectant like glycerine? Or is it a tolerable one?
3B curls
Medium texture
Normal elasticity
High porosity

    I haven't found a humectant free one yet. I found most other humectants to really not be an issue but glycerin? Oh boy...

    I haven't tried Curl Junkie Curl Queen yet, but that is Glycerin-free. It does contain propylene glycol, though, however in the past I have generally not found this to cause problems like glycerin does for me
    Products in current rotation:

    Terressentials Pure Earth Mud Wash; Elucence MBC (now really just for cowashing, leg shaving or emergencies); Curl Junkie: Repair Me, Deep Fix, Curl Rehab; AOHSR (retiring); Oyin Handmade: Honey Hemp, Hair Dew, J&B; Qhemet Biologics: BRBC (retiring- prefer Oyin HD), AOHC, OHHB; Jojoba Oil for scalp; Castor Oil or Shea butter to seal; Henna & Ayurvedic pastes when I can be bothered.

    Still searching for the perfect stylers, but loving CJ CIAB over everything so far

    Is it just me or do most glycerin free gels not have a hard hold?
