SheaMoisture Coconut/Hibiscus style Milk
GIovanni Direct-Leave in

^Floridacurly already mentioned KCCC, Uncle Funky's Curly Magic, Biosilk Rock Hard Gelee & Darcy's Botanicals Pumpkin condish which I was going to mention too!

Alba Botanica Leave-In
(this one does have glycerin, but it didn't give me the usual glycerin-induced frizz in very high dews. I think it's because the glycerin is after coconut oil, an anti-humectant which may be cancelling out the humectant properties of glycerin.)

Try searching for glycerin-free products on the Products tab of this site too!

Most of my favorites have already been mentioned, but I'll add FSG and okra gel, GVP liquid sculpting gel from Sally's, volumax mega gel from Sally's, CJ CIAB, and LA Looks sport gel (this one does have glycerin but doesn't affect my hair, and I'm very sensitive to it!), Dep Sport Gel, CJ Pattern Pusha, Uncle Funky's Curly Magic.

ETA: Glycerin in my wash and conditioners don't seem to affect me- just in my leave-in and stylers!

I think that's it for now...although I'm sure I'll think of something else ;). All these mentioned are some/most of my favorite products that are staples and my hair loves...I do use a few products with glycerin that work for me (in my signature) even in a dry climate. The glycerin in my favorites is listed mid to bottom in the ingredients list and I think that makes a difference. Anyway, hope this helps you and others. :)

Co washing - GVP Conditioning Balm.

Leave in - Yes to Cucumbers color care condish (old formula. The new one sucks).

Styling - Jessicurl Confident Coils, Spiral Solutions firm hold gel, Curl Junkie Curls in a Bottle and Pattern Pusha. Garnier anti humidity hairspray (I like the Sleek n Shine version best).
