SheaMoisture Coconut/Hibiscus style Milk
GIovanni Direct-Leave in

^Floridacurly already mentioned KCCC, Uncle Funky's Curly Magic, Biosilk Rock Hard Gelee & Darcy's Botanicals Pumpkin condish which I was going to mention too!

Alba Botanica Leave-In
(this one does have glycerin, but it didn't give me the usual glycerin-induced frizz in very high dews. I think it's because the glycerin is after coconut oil, an anti-humectant which may be cancelling out the humectant properties of glycerin.)

Try searching for glycerin-free products on the Products tab of this site too!

Most of my favorites have already been mentioned, but I'll add FSG and okra gel, GVP liquid sculpting gel from Sally's, volumax mega gel from Sally's, CJ CIAB, and LA Looks sport gel (this one does have glycerin but doesn't affect my hair, and I'm very sensitive to it!), Dep Sport Gel, CJ Pattern Pusha, Uncle Funky's Curly Magic.

ETA: Glycerin in my wash and conditioners don't seem to affect me- just in my leave-in and stylers!

Most of my favorites have already been listed but here you go...

Elucence moisture balance conditioner
Darcy's botanical pumpkin seed conditioner
CJ repair me and curl rehab
Giovanni direct Leave in
Giovanni smooth as silk
Jessicurl deep treatment
Tresemme naturals nourishing moisture conditioner
Trader joes nourish spa conditioner
Trader joes tea tree tingle conditioner
GVP conditioning balm
Kenra moisturizing conditioner
Regis design olive oil conditioner

Marie Dean red clover leave in
Marie Dean curl style cream
Flaxseed gel
Okra gel
Volumax gel (my hair prefers the styling one)
BRHG
KCCC
UFDCM
Jessicurl confident coils styling solution
GVP liquid sculpting gel
LA looks power spikes gel

**products I've used but no longer in my rotation
Aussie Instant Freeze
Herbal Essence Set Me Up

I think that's it for now...although I'm sure I'll think of something else . All these mentioned are some/most of my favorite products that are staples and my hair loves...I do use a few products with glycerin that work for me (in my signature) even in a dry climate. The glycerin in my favorites is listed mid to bottom in the ingredients list and I think that makes a difference. Anyway, hope this helps you and others.

Co washing - GVP Conditioning Balm.

Leave in - Yes to Cucumbers color care condish (old formula. The new one sucks).

Styling - Jessicurl Confident Coils, Spiral Solutions firm hold gel, Curl Junkie Curls in a Bottle and Pattern Pusha. Garnier anti humidity hairspray (I like the Sleek n Shine version best).
