Susan, have you tried the Abba Weightless Gel yet? It doesn't weigh me down at all, yet it has exceptional hold. I've been using a bit of it (maybe pea sized blob) for my roots in the front/top of my hair lately no matter what else I use on the rest of my hair. I can only use it by itself over CK for the rest of my hair, though, or mixed in my palm with another gel. The CK (or another gel) helps the spreadability of the Abba, but it's a great holding gel that doesn't weigh my hair down at all
