Styling products similar to HETT (Herbal Essences Totally Twisted)?

I love how HETT works on my hair. The hold is perfect, and my curls turn out perfectly. However, I do get some product buildup from it on my fine hair, and it weighs it down.

My curly stylist told me I needed a lighter gel, and styled my hair with only Deva OneCondition and the Deva Light Hold gel. I've tried this, but I can never get my curls to turn out the same. The light hold gel doesn't have enough hold.

Are there any styling products that have similar results to HETT, without causing product buildup? I do ACV rinse about once a week to clarify, but even with this, I get buildup. My hair doesn't like LA Looks Styling Gel, it weighs it down too much.

I still sulfate shampoo once a month or so for build-up. Darn polyquats. Also, my hair sometimes needs a "clean slate," so to speak.

One of the better light gels I've used is Bioterra Styling Gel (firm hold) from Sally's.

Also, you might want to add more protein to your routine, as you mentioned you have fine hair. HETT is usually too light for me if I don't add a LI or styler with a good amount if protein.

Rtaylor - I saw your hair on another post.. love it! Makes me want to grow mine out again ). Also convinced me to give HETT another try. When you do the ACV rinse, is that just to get the build up out (or try to anyways lol)? Is that the same as doing a clarifying wash? I've been curly for a long time but new to CG .
