Default need another type of gel besides deva

I like the deva angell gel but I think it's drying my hair out badly. What else is like it but won't dry hair out? I've tried Ouidad but that one seems to make my hair flat and greasy looking. I have very fine, thin hair.

I have not personally had that problem with Deva gels. However, I do the baptismal rinse, so I leave a lot of conditioner in my hair.

With extremely fine hair, I find that aloe vera gel gives me some hold. I like mixing it with a few drops of jojoba oil, which seems to make a difference in the amount of hold I get.

Some people complain that AVG acts like a protein on their hair, but with fine hair, that is not an issue for me. My hair needs protein.

Other gels which I particularly like are KCCC and Kiss My Face Upper Management.

Sorry just realized u said fine thin hair in this case i would recommend elasta qp aloe vera gel or flax seed gel, if u have the time and patience flax seed gel is the cheapest route

My favorite is KCCC. I really did like the newer Deva Ultra defining gel, but it made my scalp itch something fierce....

That's what I use! And my scalp itches too! That's crazy how the results are similar.
