I’m on Shu Uemura clay definer. No shine, not sticky, easy to work in and hold is pretty decent. I have my hair short (no longer than 2 inches) and not found anything that compares

Any decent products that will give my hair that damp post-shower look/texture throughout the day? When my hair dries out it fizzes/curls up all over the place.

Cool Grease Blue applied to wet hair is awesome at maintaining a 'wet' look that you can restyle throughout the day.

Kevin Murphy Free Hold cream, non-greasy with a dry look, can be reshaped, expensive but smells amazing, probs worth checking his other products.

Awful name but this is good: Got2B Schwarzkopf Powderful Volumising Powder

Have tried quite a few and that was the best. Instructions on all of them say to put directly on to your hair but find it’s better to put some in your palm and distribute where/how you like (too paranoid of dodgy aim to put straight on from the container, miss, and have the combo of that + dark clothes look like rampant dandruff)
