I don't get too frizzy in general when scrunching out the crunch, but putting a little oil on my hands (jojoba or coconut or shea moisture elixir) and then scrunch it out that way. Really helped.

I used BRHG today, so I actually had a lot of crunch to scrunch! Here goes....

I have still not figured out how to use KCCC.

Then I blot my hair with a towel, scrunch in a tiny bit of gel, plop, scrunch in BRHG, let air dry or diffuse, and then SOTC.

Ok, this thread is DEFINITELY making me want to go out and get a hard hold gel... which I have yet to try. It's also making me feel better about my density... for some reason I feel like I need to have MORE hair when its wet, but obviously ya'll's ladies' hair looks gorgeous and so much fuller after SOTC. I think I've been afraid for no reason.
