CG heat protection

I've just ended the CG transition period and I am really loving my hair. The problem is that I have side bangs that I blowdry and haven't been using heat protection recently because I can't find one that is CG. My bangs curly are horrible and I've got a large forehead so I need something to partially cover that. Does anyone know any CG heat protectors? Can heat protectors work if they don't have silicones? Thanks!
3B with some 3A
Co-wash: V05 Moisture Milks Strawberries and Cream
Condish: GVP Conditioning Balm
Gel: Herbal Essences Totally Twisted
Those who are curly want to be straight, and those who are straight want to be curly- um, last time I checked I was fine with my ringlets, thank you very much.:icon_smile:

    Products with glycerin can work. See this post.

    Glycerin is a humectant. Humectants can cause problems in low humidity, like cold northern winter days or high humidity, like a Florida summer. See this post on humectants.

    This has amodimethicone. A-cone is a partially water soluble cone and is a judgement call.
