I had the tangly/crunchy experience at first as well. But after playing with it for a while, if I use it on almost dripping hair and be conservative about the amount I use, it works really well. I ALWAYS have to scrunch out the crunch though. It just isn't one of those products that will ever be non-crunchy for me. I diffuse to about 75% dry and then let it air dry the rest of the way for about 20 minutes, then I scrunch out the crunch and use a setting spray and it looks great! Shiny and clumpy for me!
