Default Glycering-free alternative to CK?

I'm thinking about modifying my routine to glycerine-free products for the dry winter in upstate NY. (I'd like to see if there is a change in my curls... they seem droopy and a little frizzy lately). I LOVE CK, (use it after leave-in and styler but before gel), but am searching for a glycerine-free alternative that is still just as awesome at fighting frizz. Any suggestions?

I don't know about a CK alternative other than the KY lube people mention, but I wanted to encourage you to go glycerin-free or reduced-glycerine for the drier weather, because I've for sure seen an improvement in my hair.

For that matter, watch out for other humectants too, like panthenol.

I read reviews of Jane Carter's Condition and Sculpt and thought of you. Especially when Mysteryflavored described this as an alternative to CK.

I'm looking for a glycerin-free, light hold product so I bought this last night and I'll see how it works.

Thanks for the suggestion!! If you don't mind, would you post a quick update here on how you like it after you've tried it? My curls are 2c/3a, so I definitely need something that isn't super heavy. Can't wait to hear what you think!
