I live in kolkata, India. I use a local brand. It has a bit of alcohol I guess, but it doesn't really dry out my hair .. I used it with two drops of castor oil, just to coat the top layer of my hair and it worked well ..

If you don't get commercial aloe gel where you live, you can always buy fresh aloe vera leaves at the grocery store and blend them with whatever you want in a mixer. I have heard natural aloe doesn't leave the hair crunchy and gives good hold too.
You may also try flax seeds to make a light hair gel. Google it !!
