Default gel without PVP or acrylates?

Hi, I have been away for a while and am trying to find a gel to subsitute for a Sebastian gel that is discontinued; it had no PVP or acrylates, just a great gel with good hold and lots of shine; any suggestions?

I thought it was the PVP that provides the hold for gels. I guess there's other ingredients that provides hold too. I don't know.
Wish I could help you there. Maybe someone else can chime in.

KCCC works as well as a strong hold gel for me.

I second the vote for KCCC. I've also heard good things about the Aubrey Organics' gels.

I love what PVP does for my hair but hate it clogging my hair follicles and coating my scalp! I am curious, why do you avoid it? I am going to try the KCCC next. Right now I use Aubrey Organics Mandarin Magic; it gives me a little hold, lots of volume and bounce and will always keep a bottle of it around. I hear the B5 Design gel has more hold but I didn't notice; I will have to try it again.

You might want to check the Max Green Alchemy line. They have two gels: a light and a strong
