Default I need a light-ish hold gel or jelly

Something that doesn't get too crunchy! I'm thinking:

Donna Marie miracurl
Batia and Aleeza
Jessicurl rockin ringlets

I'm a fine, but dense type 2b/3a
high porosity (from coloring)

Shampoo: Mop Top Gentle Shampoo
Co-wash: Chistophe Robin Lemon Cleansing Cream
RO: CJ strengthening, Kenra moisturizing
LI: Jessicurl Aloeba
DT: CJ rehab, Christophe Robin Prickly Pear Mask
PT: SS protein treatment, Ouidad 12 minute
Stylers: Jessicurl RR, SS Firm Hold Gel
Oils: caudalie, sweet almond

I tried a sample of the miracurl - it actually left my hair pretty crunchy, but I was able to SOTC. I also have a sample of the rockin ringlets; I don't really remember if I liked it well or not, but I don't think it was bad. I'm not really sure I would consider it a gel or jelly - the consistency is pretty runny - but it does have some curl enhancement and light hold. You might try ordering some samples of different jelly products from Kathymack - that way you can try a few before you commit to buying the full size.
2c/3a, botticelli/wavy/'swavy (huh?)
fine, dense, normal porosity/elasticity, dry climate

My favorite brands are Kinky Curly, As I am, Curly Kinks, Curl Junkie, and Darcy's Botanicals. Also love sealing with oils (loving argan oil right now) and styling with jelly products (KCCC is my current favorite). Mostly trying to keep it simple!

Matrix Biolage gellee - not much hold and 0 crunch
Finer, mixed with coarser strands, low-porosity, wavy curly whirly hair...3A, 2C hair. Medium thickness, medium elasticity.
S-shaped hair with corkscrew ends. My hair is even more confused than me ;p
My hair officially hates protein Once a month is enough!
Currently a fan of TiGi products, (rock on, TiGi Curlesque styling creme!) but that will soon change - I am a self-avowed product junkie! Yay!
BIG fan of supersoaker method - thanks Rudeechick!
