I have just started using Giovanni natural mousse. It is silicone-free, so CG friendly. (It's at WalMart, and other stores I'm sure, near the natural products--Burt's Bees, Yes to Carrots, and the like--not with the regular hair products.) I have not found it to be drying so far, but then again, I've only used it three times. As a side note, I am finding it to have some curl-enhancing power, even though it is not marketed as such! Hope this gives another option! Good luck!
mostly 2c, some bits 2b or 3a
medium texture, thin/medium density, normal porosity
