need help with product!

hi all -- for YEARS i was using Loreal Springing Curls. then a year ago i switched to John Frieda Frizz-Ease Curl Mousse but most of the stores are not carrying it anymore and i'm not impressed with it at all anymore. checking out the boards on here, i started to use HE Totally Twisted mousse. i noticed a TON of build up. i hate hard, crunchy so i would scrunch the mousse out after a couple hours of air drying. i was so disappointed.

back to the drawing board.

my hair is really manageable and is not that frizzy but definitely do need some styling product. i'm TOTALLY OPEN to suggestions. i see a lot of people don't even like mousse!

please help....
i wash my hair twice a week, one of those times is with Lo-Poo.

thanks everyone!

    You mentioned you Liked Loreal and they have this awesome spray gel for curls it was awesome!! and I thought that spray gel wouldnt do for my thick curls but no It did really good and it was good with frizz too Oh and Underneath that I use Lustrasilk Olive Oil Leave in Conditioner That combo is def. my HG. you should try it out and I don't think it gave me build up or flakes and they're both CG

    thanks! i did try HE SMU this morning and think i like it a bit. it seems to separate my curls a bit too much though...

    I use a gel by tresemme curl care line called bouncy curls. I like it a lot because I get good hold but it doesn't dry too hard. I do scrunch out the crunch just a little bit after it dries, but just a little.
    New to CG so still have a lot to figure out!
    3b,fine, medium to high porosity
    Products: VO5 for CO wash and rinse out. Instead of leave in CO, I use tresemme curl creme to moisterise and prevent frizz. Tresemme curl care gel, and pantene curl locking hair spray.
