CG Friendly Pomades

So I just chopped all my hair off into a pixie cut, and my usual routine doesn't quite work with this. Gel is fine for the long bits, but I have sideburns and such that need some tending-to. Does anyone know of a fairly decent hold, CG friendly pomade?

    i used to like deva set up and above, stopped using it because yellow coloring is an ingredient and that was not good for my white hair. LOL!

    uncle funky's daughter's curly magic might work well. a little goes a looonnnggg way.

    I do like Deva products, but it's a little bit on the expensive side. I wonder if there is any way I could get a sample or something.

    And I will definitely look out for the GF one, that seems to be a good, inexpensive option.

    Thanks guys!

    I use only about a pea sized amount of pomade at a time, so the Deva pomade lasts me a long time.
    Peace,

    I found the Deva Set Up and Above on amazon for $12 when I was Christmas shopping earlier, so it should be here in a few days!

    I like Aveda's Brillant Humectant Pomade. Like most Aveda products, it is a little pricy, but one container lasts a LONG time as you only need about a pea sized amount. If you go for Aveda, be sure to get the humectant (it is in a blue container). The anti-humectant is not CG friendly.
