Curl Jellies

Hey everyone, I'm new here and have been trying to wear my hair wavy again. Right now it's pretty straight (1c, but 2b when wet) but it used to be 2b/c, I think it's straighter now because it's twice as long (but maybe co-washing will bring back some curl). Anyway, I used to have really good luck with curling jellies but my favorite has been discontinued years ago. It's this one:

Do you know of a similar product that's CG friendly? What I loved about it was the soft, crunch-free hold. I'm currently using Kinky Curly Curling Custard and while I really like it, it tends to get a bit crunchy and I think it's better for when my curl pattern is stronger.
2a/b for now, medium, very dense, low porosity
Current routine:
Clarifying poo: SM fruit infused coconut Shampoo
Co-wash: Suave Coconut
RO: GVP balm, SM Manuka mask
DT: SM Manuka mask
LI: GVP balm, Suave coconut, KCKT
Sealer: SM Curl & Style Milk, Camille Rose curl milk, SM CES
Stylers: Devacurl Light Defining Gel, Aussie IF gel, KCCC, LALSG
2nd day hair: water+aloe+glycerin spray, SM curl&style milk

CG since 8/21/16

    I use homemade irish moss jelly. Not overly crunchy but has hold. It's basically some irish moss powder steeped in hot water for an hour then strained through cheesecloth. I'm clueless about store bought jellies, as I don't use them. I saw reviews for Darcy's Botanicals jelly on this site, mixed reviews but overall very good. I liked Spiral Solutions curl enhancing jelly but they're out of business for now. :(

    Edit: Just remembered Sevi has a curl jelly. I haven't tried it in awhile. But it's an all natural company.

    3A/f/i
    Super baby fine hair, low porosity
    Shampoos: SM Fruit Fusion (mostly), Avalon lemon (to clarify). Occasional aloe vera and glycerin to wash.
    Stylers: Intelligent Nutrients Perfect Hold Hairspray
    Treatments: Catnip tea, IA girl's PT, Fermented Rice Water, Catnip Tea, Amla tea, Irish Moss, SS PT

    Some good jellies are Camille Rose naturals curl maker, and I really like Uncle funky's daughter Curly Magic. Those two are popular jellies, and they work well.

    If you look on curlmart you'll see tons of different jellies and custards (ha ha I'm not entirely clear on the difference between a jellie and a custard!)

    Another option is homemade flax seed gel, which is really nice. All of these options are CG friendly.
    3a/3b high porosity, mainly coarse, medium density

    KCCC, curlsmith soufflé, ufdcm, mga sculpting gel 
    Scrunch with hair repear towel, then diffuse or air
