Yeah, it totally works. I use a really tiny amount, rub it all over my hands, and don't so much scrunch it in as pat it. It takes about a minute to dry, and I scrunch out any crunchiness, but it leaves a layer extra hold.Angrylobster, I've never thought of applying gel after SOTC. I always think that it would kind of "re-wet" my hair again....interesting.
Especially good for keeping hair in tact overnight.
