I have recently discovered True Polaris Truly Curly Styling girl (thank you Curlsnswirls). It is sold on etsy and it is an FSG gel. I ordered it just like her foolproof formula, but I had her leave out the protein, and I LOVE it!!!

Two questions for those who have the Truly Curly gel: which scent did you choose, and does TruePolaris ever have sales?

Just curious, y'know

Anyway I gave up on my own failed experiments and I ordered from True Polaris after seeing it mentioned somewhere on these boards. I chose the Fairie Queen scent, and I love it. It's a full floral scent, but it dissipates within minutes, so it doesn't clash with other scented products, which is great. My hair loves protein so I didn't think to ask for anything special in terms of the formulation, BUT on a future order I would probably ask for it not to include any magnesium sulfate (I get dried out easily and I don't need the extra curl encouragement). I also wish the formula included aloe. I didn't realize they would customize your order; now that I know I will be making all kinds of wild demands! LOL

In any case, I really recommend it. The shipping speed was amazing, the scent was lovely (and I hate most scents), and the product was moisturizing and defining. I have no clue if they offer sales, but it couldn't hurt to ask, right? Or to ask for a sample?
