Thank you Lauraimes! That is what I thought I should look for but I didn't know if polyquats had any other names.
The gel I referred to is Volumax Mega Hold Gel from Sally's. It is different than the regular one that is in the product list on this site.
The ingredients are:
Water/Aqua/Eau, Polyacrylate-2 Crosspolymer, Aminomethyl Propanol, Ceteth-20, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein PG-Propyl Silanetriol, Laureth-12, Butyl Methoxydibenzoylmethane, Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, Tetrasodium EDTA, Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate, DMDM Hydantoin, Benzyl Benzoate, Limonene, Benzyl Salicylate, Fragrance/Parfum
I chose it because it had no glycerin and had some protein in it. I really like it.
Low/ Med porosity
