Unscented hair gel

Where can I get styling gel that doesn't have perfume in it. Everything in the mainstream drugstores and supermarkets has added fragrance. The only unscented hair styling gels I can find are at Whole Foods in minuscule quantities for $45, or this on Amazon for $20. if that's really my only option I'd rather just get a buzz cut.

Were you hit with surprise customs/import fees on an Amazon.ca purchase?

I found this product at SDM, it doesn't have good reviews but hey, as for products without added perfume there's not much else.

You could try making your own flax seed gel. Supposed to be easy and gets good reviews (well, amongst curly haired folk).

Not sure what your budget is but you should look at pomades they are more expensive but much better for your hair. You can get them in unscented.

Female chiming in here: L'Oreal Studio Line Design styling gel level 3 hold is very mild to almost unscented. However the level 4 hold has an ingredient that is scented and gave my brother headaches.
For some reason the L'Oreal Canada site won't click to a product page but the picture shows up when you hold the mouse pointer over the Hair Styling/Hair Gel category.

Regular price of gel runs from over $6 to $7 and change (Shoppers, Rexall, Fortinos and other Loblaw banners). Best sale price is $4.99 at Rexall sometimes (have not seen $3.99 price in 2018 or I missed seeing that sales flyer).

Thanks but “almost unscented” or “lightly scented” won’t do. For me, products need to have no added fragrance. If “parfum” appears anywhere on the ingredient list, I won’t buy it.

The Alberto gel I bought is working okay, it’s a little watery and doesn’t last very long unless you use a lot.
