Default Good "no shipping" GC Stylers & Mousses?

I need something to replace my icky fantaisa Ic gel. When I moisturized and co-washed my hair was moisturized, but it looked a little frizzy so I put some fantaisa on it. Now it feels more drier and a little crunchy. I think the jojoba oil I mixed in made it less crunchy, but I hate the feeling it leaves on my hair. Any good "no shipping" replacements?
I don't like ordering products online. I have a vitamin shoppe and a whole foods next to me. I can also travel a little to go to Sally's.

I like Biotera Curl Creme from Sally's and the Styling gel from the same line. Both are pretty moisturizing, and the gel gives a flexible hold.

I also like Vigorol Curling Creme. The scent takes some getting used to(kinda strong), but it wears off alitle after awhile. It doesn't take alot when used with Elucence MBC, but I just have to be careful to not over-manipulate when applying because you know Elucence has the tendancy to sorta foam when you over do it, as does the curling creme. But when used correctly, I'm left with very nice and shiny curls.

All three are CG.

I just bought some of this and tried it yesterday!! I really like it a lot!!! I did order so qhemet Honeytea soft hold gel too though, so when that comes I will try it and compare, but until it arrives I'm definitely going to keep using the bioterra!!

I just tried long aid activator gel and it's a lot better than fantasia IC for moisture, but it doesn't give me the same shine. Also good is the aubrey organics gel if you have access to those products.

I revisited my LA gel after seeing the thread on it.. and I agree with ya.. nice moisture, but frizzies... That's a big ol' tub too, gotta figure something to do with it!

I noticed a definite reduction in the frizzies when I used a leave in underneath the long aid gel.

Aubrey Organics Mandarin Magic (use conditioner or a leave-in under it; it also stands up to a little butter on your ends. Available at the Vitamin Shoppe

Theraneem Leaf and Aloe Vera gel (by Organics South) - great gel. Only one place in my town sells it but I get off of Amazon.com

You can make Flaxseed gel - 1 cup of water to 2 tsb flaxseeds, boil for 10 minutes, strain through cheesecloth, cool and keep refrigerated. You can add aloe vera gel and a few drops of essential oil.

Paul Mitchell Express Style round trip (CVS)
