Runny gels like Ouidad Curl Quencher?

I've been using Ouidad FOREVER and love it to pieces but it keeps getting more and more expensive. It's $26 for 8.5 ozs these days. Can anyone recommend something similar? I think the Ouidad always worked so well for me because of the runny consistency of the product meant that I could get away with using a lot of it. I'm looking for something with that runny, slippery feel, light hold, and no crunch.
Hi! I know the feeling of having to switch products because of price!


I currently use Curls Goddess Curls, and I think it is a phenomenal gel. I think it might be water-based, as it is runny and clear in texture. It's paraben, silicone and sulfate-free, and runs for only about $8 for an 8 oz bottle. You don't need much (I use maybe a dime-sized amount for each section of my hair when applying and it is just right). It is unscented, so if your leave-in is nicely scented it won't be blocked, or if you're sensitive to smells it won't bother you. And it is the *only* gel I have used that leaves my hair soft with 0 crunch whatsoever (even when I'm a little heavy-handed!).


I found it at a Sally's near me, since Wal-Mart was out. But it was cheaper at Sally's anyway!

CJ CIAB is really runny like the Ouidad (I use both) but doesnt have as much hold. Curl Keeper has the same runny consistency too.
