Re:Coil and KCCC

I have both Re:Coil and KCCC. I generally use either one or the other for scrunching when my hair is wet. Has anyone ever used these two together? I was wondering what would happen if I used them both. Good or bad idea?

Re:coil into soaking wet hair after my leave-in, scrunch out the excess water with a towel/tshirt. Then scrunch in KCCC mixed with some LA Looks or Herbal Essence gel.

Thanks! I'm going to give the Re:Coil/KCCC combo a try. I get so-so results with the Re:Coil and slightly better with the KCCC, so I'm hoping a combo will get me all the way there with my curls.

I typically section it into 4-5 different groups, so I probably end up with a decent sized glob of each gel by the time it's all said and done. My hair soaks products up though, so you might not need as much.
