If i were you i would try layering recoil, then angel on top of that for hold or vice versa. I love recoil, it really perks up my hair. I layer recoil under all of my gels if I feel like i need a little bit of a pick me up for my curls. I have also had really good luck with layering it on top of my gels. I normally get a crunch, but it scrunches out.
Just curious, but why did you switch to angel?
