I know how you feel, I was a John frieda addict til i started reading these boards and discovered that I was layering silicone on silicone.
I tried the boots curl creme myself and wasn't overwhelmed it which was disappointing as i'd been expecting a miracle reading some of the posts from here.
I'm not sure if you can use it as a finisher as well as a styler.
I've tried a couple of CG finishers but still keep getting frizz, I now trying Unberto gianni curls finisher, it has dimethicone in, but it's not the top of the list and i'm thinking if I'm now using silicone free poo, condish and styler then a small dose at the end won't take much washing out.
I'm still not convinced that totally eliminating silicone i necessary to be honest.
I also read on here that someone uses aloe vera hand gel as a styler, but I've not been able to find the post again to check
Good luck with the hunt
