For me, I found that the SMU spray gel was not good, it left my hair a dry crunchy mess...which is why if I wanted to get 2nd day hair (or try anyway), I mixed some of the SMU regular gel in a bottle of water and sprayed that liberally all over my hair, then scrunched it and diffused dry. The spray gel just seemed to have more drying ingredients for me. But what works for one person doesn't work for another!

As for LOOB, I am not sure they sell that in Canada, you may have to order it online. Sorry
