Recs for natural/organic pomade-type product

I like the John Masters Hair Texturizer, but it's VERY EXPENSIVE for this full-time grad student! ($20 for 2 oz.) It smells good and it feels nice (doesn't make the hair greasy) and I like the ingredients (CG friendly). I don't want want any wax or petroleum based products....

Classic 4a/b, fine, dense, normal to dry, low porosity

    Check your local healths food store and/or Whole Foods. They have lots of petroleum and wax free hair dressings.

    That is quite expensive. Have you tried Jane Carter (available at Whole Foods), pure coconut oil, Blended Cutie Soft Curls & Swirts, Organika Whipped hair butter (my current fave) or Curls Euphoria Elixir?

    Playing with my hair is a hobby. Fluffy, fine natural 4a. Goal= Healthy, beautiful hair that retains its length.
    Hear that crash? It's me falling off the CG wagon.

    I use Shea Butter as a Pomade. Works really well. Mine is pure Shea Butter. It is kinda hard but I take some in my hand and rub it and it get really soft. Then I kinda scrunch it in. I have noticed it takes very little for me to work well otherwise it feels producty, but my hair takes very little product in general.
