Default Getting rid of crunch!

Is there any easy way to get rid of crunchy hair? My curls are usually defined after a wash n go and usage of Eco styler, but it always leaves my hair crunchy! I really want my hair to have movement, and for it to be touchable, not hard as it usually is. Any suggestions?

Have you tried scrunching out the crunch?

No, only because my hair shrinks a lot and scrunching makes it look weird/ messes it up a little. ):

I've been using Herbal Essences Totally Twisted Curl Boosting Mousse and have no crunch at all, nice hold, about like a light hair spray and it's got nice movement. Gave up on the gels, just too much for me.

I've noticed that since I started using a leave in condish in my hair, (which I never did before I went CG) before applying my gel, even when I scrunch out the crunch, there is far less crunch to scrunch out and my hair feels a lot softer.
