Current products and comparable CG friendly products

More questions here...

I'm seriously considering going CG (at least modified). I'm really digging the products I'm using now but they have cones and other icky stuff that won't work with CG. So I'm reaching out to see if anyone who has used these products and went CG has found anything comparable?

Bumble and Bumble Curl Conscious Defining Creme (for fine hair)

Paul Mitchell Extra Body Sculpting Foam

It's a 10 Leave-In with Keratin

For reference, I think I have 2b/c hair, fine, and I'm very porous. My hair loooves protein!
I rotate in some cone products and have been putting together some comparisons, but never used these products (well, I used the Sculpting Foam in HS, but that was decades ago).

What I can suggest are my favorite CG LI and mousse. I am absolutely loving As I Am Leave-In (at Sally's). It leaves my hair almost as soft and tangle-free as my cone-filled LI that I keep on hand.

As far as mousse, I love TIGI Curlesque Strong Mousse (make sure you get Strong Mousse- the Lightweight Mousse looks the same and is not CG). I find it gives me great definition and hold. I don't even need to use with gel if I layer it (apply some, scrunch/plop, apply a little more, diffuse 40%, add a little more, finish diffusing). When I use the As I Am Leave-In with this, I get defined curls that are still very soft to the touch.

KCKT as a LI - at target. It doesnt take much at all. Also love HETT mousse. And im itching to try the tigi strong hold mousse Corinna mentioned.

CG is well worth it. Takes time to get adjusted, & I still cannot co-wash exclusively so I low poo. But its so much healthier for your hair to get off the silicones & sulfates. I bet after a few months CG, youll have an itch to try your old products, do it, and hate them lol!
