If you use a gel to SOTC

If you use a gel to SCOTC, what gels do you use?
I've changed up my routine and depending on what happens, I might have dropped Ecostyler for now. The only problem is I like the extra hold. So I'd like a good gel to SCOTC for a little extra hold. I'm thinking that Eco will be a bit too strong/tacky to use on dry hair.
Hmmmm..... Using gel to SOTC seems a little counterproductive to me. Once my gel dries/sets I'd be left with more crunch to scrunch out. But then, the gels I use have pretty strong hold and leave a hard cast. I like a little curl cream or moisturizer to SOTC. My current favorite is Shea Moisture Coconut and Hibiscus Smoothie.

Well.....I used to do this long ago. It worked for me.

I've been experimenting with SM. Last time, I used the smoothie, souffle and a tad of Eco. But it was a bit too crunchy. I was able to fix it, but I decided to try things without the Eco because they just didn't seem to go together well.

Dd did a PT and DT today and had left over PT so I did one, too. I usually have kind of limpy hair until I wash it again because I think the DT is a tad rich for me. So it could just be the DT, but I tried the SM Smoothie and Souffle without the Eco and it is just not strong enough. So I either need to add something else or more Souffle. I've been going light on the Souffle since people say it can get too crunchy. Maybe I just need to try using more.
This gel: Suncoat, Natural Styling Gel, Medium Hold, 5 fl oz (150 ml) - iHerb.com

Definitely gives crunch. Also, it says it's medium hold, but it's DEFINITELY strong hold. I don't use it anymore because of that, I can't have anything stronger than medium.

It's pretty good gel actually, very good to the hair, and wow, it dried FAST... my hair never dried so fast as when I used that gel.
