I've gotten good results from Kenra's Firm Hold gel - it helps keep curl formation while drying, and it is pretty soft after it is scrunched out. It isn't very crunchy, and it is very liquid-y... It is not a strong enough hold for me, but I like it in second day hair. So if you prefer curl control with light gel hold, it's a good one to try.

I just tried Aussie Instant Freeze gel today, it's pretty strong for holding curl, but once crunched out (it is really crunchy), hair still feels soft but is holding shape nicely...I have also heard good things about Aubrey Natural's Mandarin Magic (I think that's what it is called) and Biolage gellee is very, very soft. Hth!
Finer, mixed with coarser strands, low-porosity, wavy curly whirly hair...3A, 2C hair. Medium thickness, medium elasticity.
S-shaped hair with corkscrew ends. My hair is even more confused than me ;p
My hair officially hates protein Once a month is enough!
Currently a fan of TiGi products, (rock on, TiGi Curlesque styling creme!) but that will soon change - I am a self-avowed product junkie! Yay!
BIG fan of supersoaker method - thanks Rudeechick!
