How to Tame Wiry Gray Hair

I am a 2a, fine/med texture, med density, normal porosity and elasticity.
I'm now about 20% gray with most of it at my front hairline where it is very visible. My grays are very wiry and unmanageable. They seem to go in all different directions. How do I tame them a bit so I'm not rocking the Albert Einstein look?! I've tried gels and creams but they just make it look greasy and glued together. I use a RO and LI which my non gray hairs are happy with.
Anyone have this issue? What worked for you?
it's a trial and error thing. i have white hairs on front top left that will give me the albert einstein look if i don't take proper care of them. so, after i have whatever products i am using that day in my hair, scrunched with a curly towel, then i very carefully add either more leave in or butter, not touching the roots, just the hair. that seems to work. when my hair has dried it might sometimes need more in that spot so i usually do that with cj pp.

if you aren't sealing your hair, you might want to consider sealing in those spots.

Have you tried DIY flax seed gel? There are all sorts of recipes and directions on YouTube for making it. I have found that it's the one gel that has tamed my frizzy; wiry silvers without a sticky and hard feel or look.
