Default Fragrance-free Medium-hold Gels

Ladies (and guys - if there are any here...) I need your help.

I'm looking for fragrance-free medium-hold gels, for chest-length 3A/3B color-treated hair, that have a good day-long hold but won't leave hair crunchy like asian noodles. Any suggestions?

Aura hypoallergenic gel. You can but it for about 5 bucks a bottle at Sally's beauty supply. Naturelle is the name brand

Magick Botanicals and Fruit Of The Earth's Aloe Vera Gel are two that you can try that are 100 percent fragrance free and that won't leave your hair stiff or sticky.

I will recommend both Magick Botanicals and Aura Hypoallergenic. For me, Magick has somewhat less hold and a more natural feel. For more hold, I would go with Aura, which has good hold but is still not too cruncy.

I did use the Aura gel before. Wasn't too impressed with the hold factor though. My hair is chest-length and often looses it's curl on the ends and the roots and gets frizzy there instead.
