Default Cheap Plastic-free Gel?

I've pretty much declared SS CEJ and FHG my HGs and have been using them exclusively. The problem is that it only takes me only a couple months or so to burn through a container of each, which could get expensive.

I'm thinking I need to mix up my routine with another, cheaper product combo possibility.

I've had decent results with FSG+any traditional gel, but I hate using lots of synthetic materials in my hair. I know it's a long shot, but anyone know of a cheap drug store gel that doesn't have plastics or heavy-duty acrylates?

Garner Fructis's new Pure Clean gel is plastic free, I'm pretty sure. It's also a nice gel that's fairly cheap and rinses out well.

Looks like you're right:

Ingredients
Aqua (Water) , Sorbitol , Glycerin , Dehydroxanthan Gum , Benzyl Alcohol , Lithium Magnesium Sodium Silicate , Fragrance , Limonene , Citronellol , Linalool , Acacia Senegal (Acacia Senegal Gum)

Sounds perfect. Thanks for the tip!

Anyone try it yet?
