in need of product recs: natural, product free look?

Anyone know of a product that would promote natural beachy waves and curls, as opposed to producty ringlets? I've recently decided that Biolage gelee just wasn't doing it for me anymore so i switched to mousse (Paul Mitchell Sculpting Foam) which is less producty overall but not exactly what i'm looking for. How can I achieve the look of pretty, shiny, product free hair? The general image im thinking of is something along the lines of this:

Sandra Oh and Katherine Heigl from Grey's Anatomy are also a good reference of sorts. Any recs?

    Have you tried just leaving a bunch of conditioner in? I have just started the productless routine recentl and it works for me. Leaving in a bunch of conditioner gives me some hold and deffinition but doesn't leave me producty.

    Back on Cones,so now my routine is,wash with Deva No-Poo every other day or so. Occasionally use 365 sulfate free,maybe use low sulfate shampoo mixed with conditioner once every two weeks are longer. I condition with Aussie Moist or HEHH. I style with a little GF TN,and finish up with tons of GN Pure Clean Smoothing Cream. No frizz...slippy, happy hair.

    You might want to consider a lighter-hold gel like Mop Top or a mousse like Joiwhip. :drunken:

    Maybe just some leave in condish like Giovanni Direct Leave In would be nice.
    Cowash - No Poo
    Conditioner - One Condition
    Gel - Light Defining Gel

    Looking to try Devacurl Decadence line next! Can't wait to try it.

    That picture of Kate Hudson is almost definitely done with a curling iron or rollers. I find that if I use a curling iron, I really don't need products and it looks just like that. But that natural look is not achieved naturally.
    Not sure about the SJP picture. I think her and Mary Louise Parker just sold their souls or something.
