Default Another LP question.

So, I have figured out that I need to use a hair dryer to get good product results, at least to partially dry my hair. The good news is great curl formation. The bad news is - a lot of crunch. I dont mind a little because it keeps the hold in my curls. At this time I am using CK, and t his morning I tried it alone, no other gel. What do you LP curlies use to soften the crunch? I am considering trying a "jelly" or SM smoothie or souffle but I dont want oils - they sit on my hair.

Have you tried any of kathymack's favs? She uses a lot of jellies; also low-po. A few are in her siggy

Are you scrunching it out after it's dry? That helps me.

I just started using homemade FSG and LOVE IT! Doesn't give me the crunchies that my other products did.

I just pull my hair back as if I were making a ponytail, and that breaks the gel cast.

I turn my head upside down when it's dry and scrunch out the crunch.
