Default Does LOOB make yor hair hard?

Lately I've given up gel because I've been trying to find a way to control my hair with drugstore products without making it hard/crispy/crunchy. So far a mixture of mousse, leave-in conditioner, and hairspray has been somewhat working. What about LOOB? Does that keep your hair soft? A lot of people have been talking about it. (I'm half white, half black with 3b/3c hair, and you can only tell it's a bit 4a if you touch it)

yes it keeps your hair soft, it has a light hold, I have only used it with a leave in under, no gel on top

LOOB isn't crunchy or hard at all.
Loreal Studio Tightly Wound spray gel is another good one for soft flezible hold. The two work well together too.
All the Studio stuff is BOGO at Walgreens so it's worth a shot. They're pretty good about taking stuff back or exchanging as well.

Most find it actually cuts the crunch from a gel. Definitely not crunchy itself[/i]

No, no hard hold at all. Actually my hair feels quite soft. I use a leave in under it. I like it but the smell is strong so I don't use it much.
