Need some recommendations of glycerin-free stylers to add to my rotation.
I've had good results so far with Tressemme Flawless Curls gel. What works good for you with these low dews???
TIA!

Went full CG May '10.
Silicones sucked me in & I went Mod-CG in Dec '12.
Still paying for that one & trying to get my curls back!
Haven't tried it myself due to the price, but lots of curlies rave about Kinky Curly Curling Custard. No glycerin, cones, protein or polyquats.

The only complaint is that it takes forever for hair to dry with KCCC, but otherwise it has HG status around here. Definitely on my "have to try" list.

The Aussie Instant Freeze has become my new love. Honestly, the name of the product scared me away. We all have used hard hold gels that just feel like our hair is frozen- but I can put this stuff in my DRY hair and it still doesn't make it crunchy. Love, love, love.

BRHG, I think a Pantene gel (for normal-thick hair), Uncle Funky's Daughter Curly Magic, CJ Curl Queen
Coarse texture, normal-high porosity, normal elasticity (Komaza Care), very weak waves
cleanser: Redken Fresh Curls Shampoo, CJ Daily Fix

rinse out: GVP Conditioning Balm, CJ Repair Me, CJ Smoothing

jellies/creams: CR Curl Maker, KCCC, UFD Curly Magic
gels: CJ CQ, BRHG

I have only used KCCC and think I like the no or low glycerin better than the deva gel I was using. But it takes such a long time for my hair to dry when I use it that most of the time I don't. Looking at trying the Curl Queen, wonder if it doesn't take quite as long to dry as KCCC?
2c, some straight pieces on canopy, curlier underneath. Fine, thin, unsure on porosity - sent in my sample and waiting to hear back. Products - have a bunch I am trying out, CJ, Deva, SM Yucca, TJ.
+1 for Uncle Funky' s Daughter Curly Magic, but it's quite expensive with shipping. I also like Aubrey Organics Mandarin Magic gel (light hold) and Curls Goddess Curls (from Target). love the UFDCM, but the Curls gel and AOMM are much more affordable.

KCCC, UFDCM, FSG, BB's Mudd, SSCEJ, BRHG, and Curl Queen. I keep trying to narrow down my stash to what I really like but it's hard . I try new combos and think "wow, this is it!"...and then I try something else or read a about a new combo and well...it turns out great too! I really do need to narrow my stash to a handful of Stylers...soon.

I also really like MarieDean's curl styling cream (under a gel/jelly). Still need to experiment with other styling creams though (CCCCL, Deva..).
