cone free gel thats available at drugstore or bss

The title pretty much says it all.

I'm a new curly. I did a big chop on August 1rst and have been rockin my new curly do ever since. I have been using Sauve for cowashes, Elucence for conditioning and [buylink=]KCCC[/buylink] as my daily gel/curl definer.

I recently tried IC Fantasia and loved how defined it left my curls but I have only been using it for going out since I try to stay away from cones. So any recommendations for a cone free gel (CG friendly) that is readily available at the bss or drugstore would be greatly appreciated.

    Try Naturelle Aura Hypo-Allergenic Styling Gel. You can find it at Sally's. It's a great curl definer, but its crunchy. You'll have to use it in combination with oil or a moisturizer and find the right amount needed for your hair. It contains no protein or silicone and does not cause flakes either.

    most gels are cone free. FYI the cone in ic fantasia is water soluable (not a problem on the CG routine).

    But I do second the above rec for Aura/Naturelle hypo gel from sally's.

    I'm more of a soft/light hold kind of girl. I like my curlies to rock :headbang: freely. If your willing to travel beyond the drug store/beauty supply, my current faves are:

    MOP foam forming gel(light hold)-Ulta
    JM Sweet Orange & Silk Protein-Whole Foods
    Qhemet Honeybush Hair Tea Soft Hold Gel-Order on-line

    I have tried the Aubrey Organics Mandarin Majic and initially liked it but have since decided that it gives me more hold than I need with some added crunch. Maybe less is more w/ this particular gel. Anyway, if this is something your looking for in a hair gel it can be purchased at the Vitamin Shoppe.
    3c-4a; Protein Sensitive(forms of wheat, keratin, soy and anything "hydrolyzed"). My hair hates coconut oil and jojoba oil(sometimes). PW: crazycurls
