Yes I am one of "those" that scrunches the crunch out. Actually I agree that sometimes you do need the crunch to make your curls look more presentable. However, I like the frizzy look sometimes. Anyway, I would suggest trying the Deva gels. Whenever I got my deva cut a few months ago they used it and I hated it cause it made my hair look really perfect/ defined and I didn't like how it controlled my hair so much. So I am assuming that you would probably like it haha.
