Maybe omit the LA Natural gel? On me, putting wet gel on over it would undo the hold I got from BRHG. I scrunch it out dry usually, only using the tiniest smidge of KBB hair cream or JCNS - nothing wet - if I simply can't get it to scrunch out dry. If I've used a leave-in under BRHG, I usually don't need anything, though.
