What gets rid of the crunchiness left by gel or mousse once it dries?
Scrunch out the crunch! :) Here's an example, oh and if you're not into big hair with some frizz you can skip the rough shaking part at the beginning. Flipping your hair over while gently lifting the roots works great as well.
you can try mixing it with shea butter and olive oil or coconut oil
use a bit of oil all over or add it to the hair before the gel/mousse
