Leave in suggestions?

Hi! It's been a while since I've been on here, but I'm hoping I can get some suggestions.

I'm a 2b/c, very fine and thin, best guess is medium to high porosity. I live in Florida, so humidity is bad, and my hair tends to frizz. I'm looking for a lighter leave in I've been using GVP matrix conditioning balm as a rinse out and leave in, but I think it's just weighing my hair down lately. I'm modified CG. Hard water prevents me from strictly co washing, but I do it sometimes. Mainly use ION swimmers shampoo to get out the hard water, and that helps with frizz.

I keep it light on styling as well...CHS Curl Keeper and a GVP gel.

Obviously, I shop at Sally's a lot :). Any suggestions from there or Target/drugstore would be best. Thanks in advance for your help!
