my hair is never crunchy!!
 
no matter how much gel or any product i use, my hair never dries crunchy. ever. i sleep on wet hair, so having it dry crunchy would help with it staying frizz free and more defined. can anyone give me tips so it'll dry crunchy?

Glue? :shock:



I really don't know, sorry. Mine gets crunchy at the slightest hint of gel.

I have the exact opposite problem.

sorry :(

Hahah... my hair never gets crunchy too. The old formula BRHG was the only thing that could make it slightly crunchy, but it got reformulated. To get good second day hair I usually spray my hair with hairspray pretty thoroughly right before I go to bed and by morning all my tossing and turning has worked it all out. I use Aussie Sprunch Spray. HTH!

hmmm...that's not a bad idea!! my mom had about 3443234 different hairsprays she doesn't use; think i'll just steal one of hers :)

do you find it drying at all, since it had alchohol denat. in it? you have fine and thin hair, as your signature says, whilst i have very thick hair.

Abba Weightless Gel dries quite crunchy. So does the new L'Oreal Studio Line Weather or Not gel. That one has a VERY high crunch factor. I got results almost identical to my beloved old formula BRHG. I found it a little drying though.

Biosilk Rock Hard Gelee, the old formula, gives me crunch but it is easily scrunched out after my hair dries because I don't like the crunch. Aussie Sprunch Spray will also give a crunch. I have just tried it once (my mom had some when I went to visit her this weekend), but the Garnier Fructis hard curl gel is supposed to give crunch, too.

Are you using a leave-in under the gel? I get no crunch when using a leave-in.

I was about to ask the same thing.

no, not for the spring/summer, as i get easily over conditioned. i try to rinse out all of my conditioner, as well. i tried lauraloo's suggestion, and had nice, solid, defined curls today, but it felt a little on the dry side.

Yes, it does tend to dry me out from time to time, depending on the weather and how much I use. I've found that smoothing over CCSS the next day helps to keep the dryness at bay. I just make sure to condition really well when I wash. That's the best thing I've come up with to get a little bit of crunch before I go to bed. HTH!

How about trying biolage gelee, it always give me lots of crunch which i of course scrunch out. Maybe its because you are sleeping on wet hair. I say this because like I mentioned i use the biolage gelee and it always gives me lots of crunch (unless I apply jessi curl cc under it) but one time I went to sleep on wet hair and woke up with soft hair and it was still a bit damp.

Maybe you should let it air dry a little before going to bed?

I find gel spray very crunchy. One I have used is L'Oreal gel spray but that was before CG so I don't know if the ingredients are safe. John Frieda also do one with a PEG -cone in. That always leaves my hair crispy like a piece of fusilli pasta! :lol: :lol:
