Ouidad PlayCurl Volumizing styling Spray Dupe?

Libby_Libby_ Posts: 19Registered Users Curl Novice
does anyone know of a good dupe for the Ouidad playcurl volumizing styling spray? I love what it does for my curls but I realized its not CG friendly as it contains water soluble silicones. no other spray has worked for my hair like this one but id rather not use silicones, even water soluble ones.

(occasionally get tired of how much time is takes and wear my hair up a lot which causes me to lose definition)

    I'm sorry no one's been able to help you with this — hopefully someone will weigh in soon.

    Actually, water-soluble silicones *are* CG friendly, so you can feel free to continue using the product.

    As for similar products, you could maybe try the Aveda Volumizing Tonic. Andalou also makes something that I think is called Styling Spray, which is basically a protein-rich spray. I think that maybe your hair enjoys the protein in the PlayCurl product. You could also experiment with using protein-rich conditioners to see if that also gives you good results.
