I really enjoy using flax seed gel. It's Naptural85's recipe of YouTube. I use it along with a leave-in conditioner (kimmaytube version) and whipped Shea butter. I do not get the crunchy feeling. When I don't feel like making FSG I use EcoStyler Gel Argan Oil. FSG only has 3wk fridge life. I don't use too much of the EcoStyler because it can flake. Both I find work great, no complaints.
