I have really thick, wavy hair, I'm looking for a product that:
>has strong hold
>dries matte, not shiny
>won't make my hair crunchy
>somewhat moldable when dry
Preferably something common that I can buy in most stores, but if I have to buy online that's fine. Price isn't an issue.

I usually don't post here because i hate everyone and their shitty tastes and you're probably a jerkoff but try got2be glued spiking glue. Works great for me. only use a pea-sized amount though and rub it in your hands before running your fingers through your hair. Always looks natural.
You probably treat your hair like shit. Most styling products dry out your hair very badly and if you shampoo too often then it prevents any oils from sticking to your hair, so it will never really rehydrate.
Try this: Only shampoo 1-2 times per week, but use conditioner each time that you get in the shower. As a styling product and moisturizer use a small amount of a very light oil. Argan oil is the standard but it is a little more pricey and you typically have to go to a salon to find good stuff. Instead I use grapeseed oil. You can get it at the grocery store. I put a little essential oil in mine to add some fragrance. Only use enough to wet your palms and then work it into you hair and style. This will work for most hair styles, unless you are trying to add some crazy amount of volume. Then use a hair drier on low heat (otherwise your wavy hair will get super frizzy) and use a little light pomade to make it stay.
Honestly though, once your hair is healthy and hydrated it will remain pliable throughout the day and you can change the look however you want with just a little bit of water.

Already do this and I condition every shower.

I use anti-frizz serum after showering, not sure if that counts as "light oil" and I'm not sure what's in it.
I live in a really humid area so hair is always frizzy sometimes even when I do the above.
Can you recommend a good light pomade that might help?
