I don't like Re:Coil either. It's super sticky, and it seems to dry out my hair so much all it can do is frizz.

Have you tried using a mousse? A lot of people here with "type 2" curls love to use mousse for hold and moisture because it has such a light texture.

Maybe a gel-cream like Biotera Curl Cream would feel better in your hair than more lotion-like products.
