I tend to handle my hair a bit to get the crunch out out but I definitely can't have too much product in my hair or it weighs it down and pulls the curl out. I need medium hold gel and usually I just have a leave in under that although occasionally I have say Loob or a Rusk BG under it and over a leave in
2c/3a?
Low porosity, medium texture.

If it smells good put it in your hair, if it tastes good spit it out!
