Non-flaking Gels?

My EcoStyler Argan Oil gel is not mixing well with my leave-in conditioner. I end up with flakes or white balls in my hair. Does anyone know of a fairly cheap gel I can use to lay down my hair that gets along with just about any conditioner? Under $5 would be perfect.

    I find that Biolage Gelée works really well and there is definitely no flaking. Plus the bottle lasts forever! :) I mix it with Aubrey Organics Mandarin Magic Jelly ...
