Someone please help. Regardless of what hair gel I use ([buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Kinky-Curly-Curling-Custard-p-778.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=kinkycurly-curling-custard]KCCC[/buylink]. KP,fantasia) my hair is always crunchy and never ever soft . I condition wash every morning with either Jessie Curl shea it isn't so, or elucence, or a humectant conditioner. I look at all the pictures in the hair albums and get sooo frustrated because ya'lls hair looks really great with great curl definition and mine - well, not so pretty. Any help would be appreciated (especially from my coworkers who have to listen to me whine and complain daily)
What is now my favorite combinatin is AC Jazz Rosemary Spritz and Aura Hypoalergenic gel. This combo leaves my hair SUPER soft. This is the only gel that doesn't give me crunch. Also, garnier fructis soft curl cream, long aid curl activator gel, and Kemi Oyl Shea Butter pomade also give me soft curls. I prefer soft curls over hold and definition b/c my curls seem to define nicely though my hair is still pretty short.

vegatable glycerine, where as I use just regular glycerine. I'm truly not sure if there's a real difference between the types of glycerines, as long as you use 100%. But, I'm too lazy to go to a health food store. I have Walgreens up the street from my house and they sale 100% Glyclerine USP in a 4 oz. bottle for about $2.99. I hope this helps.
Again, you'll be amazed how moistured your hair feels after using it and it distributes through your hair very well. (Please keep in mind a little goes a long way)

Awww, thank you. Your hair is nice too. I love your puff pics and rollerset pics.
1) After shampooing, spray/saturate hair with Ouidad botanical boost before apply the "gel" product. The texture is defined when dry but it's soft, not crunchy.
2) Regardless of whether or not I do the above, after my texture is COMPLETEL dry, I rub a tiny bit of pomade (any brand you like, I currently use B&B Brilliantine) on my hands, then gather my hair into a ponytail (you can do this on more than one section if too short for one), hold it for maybe 30 seconds, and let go and fluff lightly with fingers to regain shape. This always gets rid of crunchies.
