    Conditioner, then light gel. I like Suave's matrix knockoff.

    but will that hold my curl?

    Yep, it holds my curls with no problem. Or you can go with the crunchy hair then scrunch the crunch out. When I do that, though, I tend to get flaky hair.

    I second the conditioner-gel mix.

    My hair always dries crunchy. Once it's dry, I just flip my head over and scrunch out all the crunch.

    It helps to use a soft old tee shirt to scrunch the crunch out -- I was getting frizz before trying this.
