I think you'd like what I call the "jelly" products--gelatinous consistency without the chemicals. Both KCCC and UFD Curly Magic would be included. Others are DM Curling Gelly, BS Magic Curls Puree or Gelee, CK Coil Jam, SS Curl Enhancing Jelly, As I Am Curling Jelly, ITDF Organicals Curl Defining Gel or Touchably Soft Gel and Camille Rose Curl Maker.

My hair hates polyquats, especially 4 and 10, which are found in a lot of gels.
