    You could make your own flax seed gel. Put what you want in it. People sure sing its praises.

    That's a tough one! Here are a few I could think of:

    Uncle funkys curly magic
    CJ CIAB
    CJ PP
    Pantene pro v curl gel(?)
    Spiral solutions firm hold gel (has silk amino acids, but nothing hydrolised)
    Giovanni LA natural gel
    2C/ Coarse/ Normal porosity/ SW Florida/ Salt & Pepper
    Cleanse: AIA cowash, TJ Tea Tree Condish
    Condish: JC Too Shea, Tresemme Botanique
    Stylers: flax/okra gel or KCCC + CJ PP or JC Spiralicious
    Experimenting with Got2B Ultra gel and loving it so far!

    Thanks! It seems that out of many of the gels I look at, if it doesn't have glycerin it has protein and vice versa.

    I will have to look into flax seed gel. I work FT and have two kids so I don't have a bunch of time, but I am all about finding my HG hair products.
