CurlTalk

A bit frustrated...need some recs.

So I've tried some gelees and cream-gels and I'm just not satisfied.

DB Curl Cream-Gel
BB Styling Mudd
SM Mousse

I can do more of a comparison later if anyone is interested, but for now I'll stay it's either too much crunch, scrunching doesn't really work for my tight curls and it looks like 90's gel curls, too light, or too heavy. I think I need a curl cream or leave-in that is lighter, isn't full of waxes/silicones, aloe, honey, or heavy oils. Something to just define my curls and keep them neat-ish as they dry.

Anyone know of anything like this? The product doesn't even have to be intended for this purpose.

    Kiss my face upper management (iherb.com) seems suitable, it's a light hold and it doesn't have any of the ingredients you said you didnt want :) i personally love this gel!

    Aha I finally found the ingredients. Too many proteins and argan oil really weighs my hair down...also alot of essentials I'm allergic too, but thank you for taking the time to help me.
