How to combat stickiness from gels

I've been trying HESMU gel, and I think it has some potential to cut down on frizz for me, but it leaves my hair feeling very sticky. I use a leave in underneath it, and then apply the gel. Is there any way to reduce the sticky feeling it leaves?

    I'm using HESMU too right now. Just started using it three days ago, actually. I wasn't very impressed. It seemed to make my hair a little fly-awaey.
    But maybe you're using too much?
    I use a couple pea sized amounts (though I have short hair).
    Or it could be the leave-in?
    I know one thing for sure, there are probably better curly stylers out there.

    Try mixing it with your leave-in and then scrunching it all in together maybe. It's been mentioned in Jillipoo's blog a few times.
