Gels that are protein-free?

Does anyone know of any gels that are protein-free and relatively cheap? My hair dislikes the LALSG and EcoStyler gels, so I've been reading up on the Biotera gel. Any other suggestions?

My hair has a mix of low/med/high porosity, and it's medium textured (some are still fine, though!)

I normally like protein in gel, but I had issues with LALSG and Eco Styler also. Biotera gel is one of my favorites. I like the thinner consistency and it plays well with everything I've tried it with.

Perhaps the L'Oreal EverStyle Curl Defining Gel. I've never used it but it has a nice review on YT.

Thanks everyone! I loved the GF Pure Clean gel (it was my HG *sigh*) but at about $5.00 for 6.8 ounces, I had to stop buying it. I was going through at least one bottle every week! But if I can't find a good gel, I'll just have to reconsider the GFPC gel. It's also hard for me to find a gel that doesn't react with my leave-ins. Do the gels that you all use ever react badly with your leave-ins or stylers?

My Bioterra gel has soy protein. I had to stop using it. I'm trying out Nothing But Curl Sealer and I'm okay with the results. I don't use anything else, so if it can manage my hair all by itself it's pretty durable.
I second Aussie Instant Freeze!
