Need a straightening gel to loosen curls to waves, NO HEAT.

I have 3A-B curls and I want to use a gel that will loosen them up to very soft waves, almost straight without any heat, irons involved.

But I wouldn't want a greasy or oily gel to weigh the hair down to make it straight.

Does this miracle product exist?.

    If you have a Sally's nearby, I'd suggest Aura Hypoallergenic Gel. It seems to make curls a bit wavier without weighing them down (it's CG) for alot of curlies. Although I could never get it to work for my hair, it did make my hair wavier (even though I'm more of a wavy to begin with!).

    PhytoDefrisant is a cream that is supposed to straighten hair. It's quite pricey though.

    Prior to wearing my hair curly all the time I tried the so-called "curl activator" gels (main ingredient: propylene glycol) thinking they would make my hair curlier but it was the total opposite, although they left my hair very soft I barely had any waves in it so maybe you can give one them a try. You can find them at the ethnic hair section of any drug, supermarket or department store.

    Ecostyler (Sally Beauty Supply) made my hair heavier and a bit straighter. It's a heavy gel. Miss Jessie's [buylink=]Curly pudding[/buylink] will do it if you do the "shingling" method. Actually any styler with the shingling method will straighten the curl. Google Miss Jessies for instructions.
