2b/2c Help please!

Hi all! I am a new CG...2b/2c waves with some tighter "s" underneath, multi layered hair, that has been keritan thermal straightened multiple times, now very damaged I am about to return to work after having my baby and I just cant afford to get my hair straightened again, Decided its too damaged and I will just face the music and learn to deal with the waves/curls!!

I need some help with the styling part, I love devacurl products, the no poo or just onecondition wash works well, my hair is VERY VERY dry and damaged. When I cowash, i scrunch dry with microfiber towel, spray an aussie leave in conditioner with heat protect, scrunch with angel or other gel (no alcohol or silicones) and clip my roots for volume and diffuse in a variety of positions.....

my issue is i have to leave the gel cast on for a significant amount of time, 2-3 hours before i can scrunch out the crunch and have touchable soft waves and I just cannot stand the look of my hair before I scrunch out the gel crunch...it looks stringy and sparse! I have tried mousse (g2b kinky and some garnier fructis gel cream-both of which leave my hair a sticky mess ugh! I was thinking of using less gel mixed with a bit of conditioner?? hoping this would give me hold without too much crunch? anyone try this or have any other suggestions? I just wanna be able to scrunch, diffuse and be done in less than 30 mins, at this rate I will be getting to work with crunch and be able to scrunch just before lunch no thx!!
Hello from a fellow wavy I used to have the exact same problem. No matter what styling product I used I could never SOTC properly & I hate that "wet look" on myself.

With the KCCC I can do all the things you are wishing for! Squish it in, scrunch w/ microf. towel, diffuse for about 15 mins., fluff - DONE! Good luck and let me know if you try it!

kccc extends drying time a lot for many people. Kathy mack should have samples of this and I think she ships to Canada.
Are you doing protein treatments for your damaged hair?
Does washing at night work for you? You could diffuse part way to set the gel and then sleep in a pineapple. This works for some, and not others.

I'm going to second that KCCC suggestion, I absolutely love that gel! Yeah it extends drying time, but if you diffuse for a bit and then SOTC the rest of the drying time isn't too long :3
