LA Looks Wet Look Gel Users

I just bought this since it seems as if many on here like it. Is there a good way to use it (leave-in underneath)? I am not sure I will like this because I don't want the hard wet crunchy look, but figured for 2.59 a bottle...thanks.

    I use that gel over my leave in conditioner. I don't use a regular conditioner as my leave in unless the bottle says I can. This gel doesn't leave my hair crunchy and I use a lot of gel.

    If your hair dries crunchy, most people scrunch out the crunch (SOTC) when their hair is completely dry. Letting it get crunchy (form a cast) as it dries helps prevent frizz and maintain curl during the drying process. After SOTC you're left with soft hair that maintains the hold from the gel. If it's hard to SOTC, you used too much gel and need to cut back.

    If it's done when the hair is completely dry, SOTCing shouldn't cause frizz. It isn't a lot of touching, and it isn't fast /rough. Just a deliberate gentle scrunch to break the cast. Once you feel the cast break, you gently let the hair back down. Some choose to coat their hands with a bit of additional gel or an oil, pomade, or butter before SOTCing, but for many, maybe even most, bare hands are fine.

    Yeah, their website only lists USA retailers as far as on the ground stores go. However, I've seen their stuff on Amazon and drugstore.com.
