Would this creamgel be any good?

Yesterday I bought a creamgel (which is supposed to be something between curlcream and gel) in fact just to try it since it was that cheap.

I needed to revive my curls anyway and to battle the frizz so I used a bit on dry hair to watch the effects on dry hair. First impression was good, but that's only a first impression. It is white and looks like bodylotion

Would this creamgel be any good ingredientwise? (if not it was cheap anyway) and it is CG, right?

Aqua, Paraffinum Liquidum, Propylene Glycol, cetylalcohol, phenoxyethanol, polyacrylamide, PVP, Panthenol, VP/VA Copolymer, C13-14 Isoparaffin, Parfum, Ethylhexylglycerin, Laureth-7.

I'm not going to use it the next couple of days since we're having high dews at the moment and since it contains humectants.

For Dutch and Belgian curlies: if you would like to check out this cheap (2,75/100 ml jar and you don't use a lot) creamgel as well, it's Hema Curl Booster

The liquid paraffin could well build up if you don't shampoo.

Parafinum liquidum is mineral oil. Some people can handle that much MO, and in very small amounts it might be OK, but you may need to shampoo it out (but not necessarily with an SLS shampoo). Personally I don't like MO, but some swear by it.
3a/b, F, normal porosity

Wash with either Suave Tropical Coconut, As I Am, or CJ Daily Fix
Condition with STC or Yes to Blueberries and detangle with Denman, rinse very lightly (baptismal rinse)
Add LAL gel, either Sport or Wet Look, scrunch with flour sack towel, and plop
Diffuse 5 minutes, then air dry
it is the same thing? Dammn...

I find that cream-gels with mineral oil or soybean oil are too heavy. Something about the combination of polymers and heavy oil.
Glad to know another name for MO, I didn't notice that at all myself. Thank you guys!!
