I scrunched a lot more than usual because the KKCC seems to relax my curl at the top. Then I took those metal clips and put it around my canopy. It just seems that no matter how much I gel up there, there's fuzz. So, the clips seemed to help a lot.

The great part is that I still have nice second day hair. The gel does it for me.
Medussa-

Your gel mixture is fabulous! I tried it this morning after conditioner washing, rinsing half of the conditioner out and applying a little Jessicurl Aloeba (quarter size amount). I mixed half Angell and half 94% Aloe Jelly I had lying around - about 3 TBSP altogether. Finished with a few drops of jojoba oil. My hair is dry now and is full and soft with big curls I'll post pictures in the summer with different product combinations. Until then, I'll keep experimenting.

Thanks for the great tip! I hope that it works for other curlies too.
You're welcome. I'm glad it worked for you.
