All natural gels??

Wondering if there are any hair gels that have a medium-strong hold that are all natural? My hair responds well to gels and its the wet look that I prefer. I am 3C with some 4a in the back. I have started to use a cowashing routine but am unsure which gels would be most suitable for cowashing. Don't most gels contain ingredients that must be washed out with sulfates or claryfing shampoos? How do I incorporate gels into my natural cowashing routine? Thanks!
ever tried flax seed gel? you can make it at home, and you'll only need flax seeds and water
it can be washed out by water only - and works wonders on my 3c hair

I'm a college student -- a graduating senior. I've made flax seed gel in the microwave before. It can be done!

Kiss My Face Upper Management Gel is a nice natural gel as well. Also try Kinky Curly Curling Custard -- its super popular.

I use Max Green Alchemy Sculpting Gel. It's decent as far as natural ingredients, and gives some nice firm hold. It's HG for me when I need good hair all day. I've been using this for a couple of years, several times per week. It runs around $15 per tube. I usually get it on Amazon, but have purchased from or MGA in the past also.

FWIW, I tried KMF Upper Management and it didn't have lasting hold for me.

I like both of Aubrey Organics Mandarin magic for a lighter hold and the b5 gel for a stronger yet not crunchy hold. Kinky curly curling custard gives a stronger hold but I still prefer the other two.
