Have you tried using aloe vera gel? I provides a soft hold & has no protein. Just a suggestion. Good luck!

I've been having very good luck with Naturelle, the Hypoallergenic gel from Sally's. It's protein free and reasonable price and no smell and gives me great results.

I think Aquage is not CG. There is a cone way at the bottom of the list.
I also use AG Re:Coil. That is more pastey. The hold with that I'm saying is a little stronger, less crunchy, more clumpy.
I apply that with sopping wet hair for the best results to get it dispersed. The liquid effects goes in easy, dries on the crunchy side and scrunches out to a great natural looking curl that is in tact but not weighted or gunked up at all.

I've got some Kinky Curly too. There is nothing like it that I can describe. I tend to avoid it bc it takes so long to dry. I will add it to the gel at times. It gives your hair good shine.

Have to say that I am LOVING the Sally generic conditioner - GVP Conditioning Balm. AWESOME, pleasant smell, great slip, and the best part is that its CHEAP!

Response: The bottle says medium to firm hold. I guess I would call it medium hold. I can also tell you it's a liquidy gel, if that helps.

The gel name is listed above. From Sally's I paid 5.59 with my Sally's discount card, 8 oz.

Just wanted to say that Naturelle Gel is my winter HG. (I just came to this conclusion yesterday). The NY dews are so low and it worked for me.

My summer HG gel is KCCC with KKKT under it.

My Flax seed gel works all year around with excellent results and I add agave in the summer, cut that in winter.

Hope this helps. This info has come from 2 1/2 years of experimentation.

I couldn't find the Naturelle gel at my local Sally's, but I picked up the Biotera gel and I think I'm going to love it in the winter, but the hold just isn't enough for right now.

I'm having some success right now w/ a mixture of CK and the HESMU. I'm still looking for my summer HG gel (dews now reaching 70+). I want to try both the Joico Joigel (w/ Keratin) that rcc has raved about, as well as BRHG (apparently the silk amino acids is fairly tolerable), but I'm having trouble find both locally. I'll probably have to break down and order from amazon.

I just picked up a tube of Aussie Instant Freeze and I'm cautiously optimistic! It seems to have a medium-firm hold; the best hold so far from a protein free gel! The only protein-free gels I've tried are HETT, HESMU and Got2B Spiked Up and hated all of them.
