Anyone have any suggestions to tame unruly gray hairs without it feeling like you have greasy or crunchy nasty product in your hair?

I have thick, coarse, dark brown hair. It’s not curly, but frizzes easily under certain conditions. I don’t mind all my random stray gray hairs, but they are definitely wiry and lay differently than the rest of my hair. They stand out quite a bit against the dark hair, so their unruliness kind of makes my hair look a lot messier than it would otherwise. I mean, I am a catlady, but I’m not quite ready to completely look the part, haha. The grays in my bangs are probably the craziest looking.



Short of using a flat iron daily, & even that doesn’t work sometimes (plus it’s bad for hair to do daily), what products can I use? My hair gets oily easily, so mousses and stuff I’ve tried before just end up looking really gross within a few hours.


This isn’t urgent, just something I’ve been meaning to ask about.

My mom has coarse thick hair and she likes Aveda Retexturizing Gel. She also said it isn't crunchy or oily on her hair. I've never used this product but I've used many other Aveda styling products and color and they're great.
