I coat my hands with a small amount of something before I scrunch out the crunch. Just about anything works well - AVG, or the same gel I used, or a molding paste like SIF or LOOB, even a small amount of conditioner. The trick is to USE it to scrunch out the crunch. If you try to smooth it on AFTER you've done this step, it may actually cause frizz b/c the dried hair is going to stick to your hands and fluff up.
