If the crunch won't scrunch out with softer hold getls you might need more conditioner or have buildup in that area, or you might not be leaving enough water in your hair before you put the gel in.

If I squeeze out too much water and then add gel it will be super crispy in my dryer spots.

But sometimes I get frizzy hair. I don't know where I'm going with this... I was just wondering if maybe putting the gel on when it's not soaking wet but quite wet would help getting not clumpy curls??
Sorry, I butted in on this post
