Finishing product with extra hold (spray gel, hairspray, etc.)?

I've found that I have issues in extreme dews. When the dews are very low, my waves tend to "wilt" and sag. When it's humid, my hair expands and frizzes.

Is there a product I could mist on after I SOTC? Basically, I'm looking for a finisher for extra hold.

I'd like something that is a fine spray/mist because touching my hair after SOTC gives me major frizz (I know pomades are an option but this is why I'm not interested in them).

Originally, I was thinking hairspray but I know many of them contain drying alcohols and I try to avoid that on a regular basis.

So either a fine mist spray gel (I know many of them kind of squirt out in a stream) or an alcohol free spray.

Any recommendations? I tried AG Curl Trigger and I think the magnesium sulfate is too drying for me. The only other spray gel I've tried is one by Garnier and a) the waxes in it caused build up and b) it squirted in a stream. Oh! And I tried the Suave Captivating Curls one.. It was just okay.
2A/B. Mix of fine, medium, and coarse (mostly medium). Dense. Mix of normal and high porosity.

    I just started using the deva hairspray and it really makes a difference for me. I actually scrunch it in upside down when I'm just about dry. I haven't noticed drying, my hair feels fuller though (but not poofy).

    I have it, but haven't really used it, just a little experimenting. I just got a deva cut and the stylist recommended b'leave in (I'm not sure on this yet) and ultra defining gel then finish with the hairspray. The hairspray is stinky, though (be warned) but it dissipates, I'm sensitive to smells and it doesn't give me any issues.
    Eta: ulta had the hairspray with a free small spray gel last week

    I actually love the Pantene spray gel (and it's CG friendly!). I use it everyday just for that purpose and it's easy to pick up at Walmart.

    I used to love the Pantene spray gel but kept having problems finding it. Then they repackaged it, yay I used it again...and now I cannot find it again :(. I check almost every time I go into Walmart. :scratch:

    @wavyroo and curlsnswirls: Is this the spray gel that's part of the curly hair line? This one: Pantene Curly Hair Series Curl Enhancing Spray Gel - NaturallyCurly.com
