Have you tried conditioner-only styling?

My Hair Loves Conditioner-Only Styling

I've had good luck with with KCKT, Alba Botanica Leave-in, and right now I'm drying my hair after using SheaMoisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & style milk (I think I'm going to like it!)

The waves are looser but there's no producty feel and it's low-maintenance.

I also second home-made gels like flaxseed or okra.
2bc/ f / ii. low porosity roots + normal porosity shaft. normal elasticity.
