I like the KBB hair butter or cream to scrunch the crunch with. Jane Carter Nourish & Shine is also a good one but I'll use it more in the winter than summer. For a pomade type product with a bit of hold I use LOOB, Garnier Fructis Brilliantine Shine Wax or Deva Set me Up. The GF Wax is a bit harder hold than the other two so it really just depends on how much hold I need at the time.

I'm really liking the combination of FOTE as a styling gel with a few drops of Carol's Daughter Tui Hair Oil to scrunch out the crunch....

Any more suggestions out there on finishing products? I'm looking for something to tame fly-aways and redefine my curls mid day if they get fluffy. I like KBB butter on my ends, but would like a lighter alternative that I could use more of to get the whole head back in shape without weighing it down.
Maybe Innersense whiped texturizer? Anyone have good luck with this?

LOL, I'm gonna try using KBB milk - somewhere between a grain of rice and a hamster pellet.

What about Kinky Curly Glass Pomade? Has anyone tried it? I am thinking ordering it with a future KCCC order.
