Leave in type product with hold

Hi, I've been using Mixed Chicks leave in as a styler and do like it. Just looking to try others that are a cream based leave in that has hold. My hair tends to do better with these types of products as opposed to a gel. I don't like a lot of volume and am ok if my hair gets weighed down as I have a lot of it! Thank you. 3b curls I think!!

    No, the gel creams are something different. Here is an example: Peace Rose Oil Complex Nourish & Silken Styling Gel-cream

    I tried the one from the Yucca and Plantain line. The gel creams are very watery creams that provide a little hold but are overall moisturizing. The texture is that of a cream and not a gel (I think they use "gel" in the name because there is more hold than with a regular cream). I've never tried the souffle and so can't comment on that one.

    You should consider Camille Rose Whipped Aloe-Butter Gel at most Targets. That stuff is lovely.

    I've been using AG re coil and while it gives really curly curls (I'm 3B-3C) it does prevent frizz. I prefer to have a little frizz because I want the volume, so it sounds like it could be worth a try for you. It's at Amazon for $15-16 but I don't know if stores have it.

    Thanks for all the suggestions will look into them all!

    AG Recoil is available in Ulta stores. That's where I get mine. You can even use Ulta coupons for it.
