Have you tried leave-in conditioners? My hair admittedly sounds v different from yours (thick and, although straight, with so much body that it isn't poker-straight or limp), but I find them useful as a lighter alternative to styling products. They definitely don't make hair crunchy either, unless you put them in while your hair's wet.

When I curl my hair with heated rollers I use a smidge of serum on wet hair. When hair is dry I spray with V05 Thermo curl spray and comb through. Once rollers are in I spray them with a bit of silvikrin hairspray (for shiney hair, gold bottle, strength no 2. Do not get one of their strength no 4 hairsprays as I find they do make hair a bit crunchy). After 15 min I take rollers out, comb through with fingers and spray with hairspray again.

I might maybe need one quick spray of hairspray through the day but find the curls out great. Without the v05 spray my hair can go a bit fluffy. It's only £3 or so in Boots and I find it works great (I'm normally an expensive hair and beauty product whore)

I used to use Frizzease by John Frieda which was OKish. Now use Keratese Elixier which is a lot more expensive but lasts for ages. Still only on first bottle which I bought at start of year. Need only a small drop and I find it a lot lighter and greasy than Frizzease. It can also be used on dry hair and as a preshampoo treatment to get rid of product build up though I dont bother using it for this. I just use it on damp hair.
