Alcohol-free gel for poor, fine-haired teacher?

Not sure of my hair type maybe 3A? But it's very fine, yet high density. I'm looking for a good alcohol-free styling gel but I'm a poor teacher :cry: Any recommendations for a cheapie ?

    Do you mean no alcohols period, or just free from drying alcohols (fatty alcohols are actually beneficial to hair)? If just free from drying alcohols, then... If you need hard hold, you might try Aussie Instant Freeze. I can't get multiple day hair with it, but it does great on wash day. If your hair can tolerate glycerin, LA Looks Sport Gel (LALSG) is great. I can use it Fall through Spring, and I get 2nd and 3rd day hair with it. Both are fairly cheap, drugstore gels.

    If you prefer lighter hold, Herbal Essences Totally Twisted or Tresemme Flawless Curls both work decently. Neither gave me multi-day hair, but worked well on wash day. If I recall, the Tresemme has glycerin if that's an issue.

    For reference, I have fine hair, medium density, and 2c /3a curl type.
