I recommend Organic Root Stimulator's Lock and Twist gel. The ingredients are minimal and moisturizing. It gives nice hold/definition without excessive crunch. Its found in the ethnic hair care. As for a Leave-in, I recommend Garnier Sleek and Shine leave-in. If you can't find that, then go for the Curl n Shine leave-in which is a tad lighter in moisture. hth

Herbal Essences Set Me Up gel is THE best gel I have ever found in a drugstore and actually works fabulously for me!! I'm in love with it.

I just bought this - any tips on how to get the best results? I have a lot of hair, but just hate crunch!!! I also have Boots to work with, wondering if that would go well under it?? Or just leaving in One C??

I bet Boots would go great underneath it! There is crunch but it is really easily scrunched out. Really! And with boots underneath your crunch would probably be minimal. I use a huge glob of it on sopping wet hair right after I've applied my cream styler. I just smooth it over the whole length of the hair, underneath and outer, and then scrunch it in a bit. Plop, diffuse, voila!

Nice, hope I like it - that would be great, a drugstore gel that works
