it took me a while to find the right one, but i'm right in there with lovin' my herbal essences humidity defying gel. i leave in a lot of conditioner--maybe that's why i don't have a problem with crunch. other gels i've tried and liked are ouidad climate control, s-curl, ors lock and twist, got2be spiked up gel, and fantasia ic w/sparkelites.
