Favorite CG-Friendly "Messy Hair" Products?

So, I love my smooth, defined curls. But I also like to have those kinda rocker-girl messy hair days, where things are a bit chunky and roughed up. The problem is, so many of the "messy hair" products I have found are just loaded with non-CG-friendly goo.

Any recommendations? Fine, low-porosity hair over here, but recommend whatever you like in case it works for someone besides me.

    I'm FINALLY able to get second day hair since growing out my pixie. It's about midway between ears and neck now, but I'm finding if I scrunch in some leave in and let it air dry the weight pulls the curl into looser rock star waves!

    LOOB has dimethicone, though... any -cone free, totally CG-friendly ones?

    CurleeAngel, I rarely get second-day hair. Mine is chin length and fine, and it gets so greasy looking at the roots... body chemistry? I'm greasy in general. Do you scrunch the leave-in into dry hair? Do you ever have grease problems, or is that my personal battle to fight? :tongue3:

    I'm afraid I only get greasy if I use too much oil. I have only started getting second day hair in the last couple of weeks. I spray leave in into dry hair and scrunch. Not enough to wet it just to reactivate the curl.
