I liked the softness that I got from the combination of Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie and EcoStyler Gel (Argan). Even though the gel had max hold of 10, the SMCES helped reduce the crunchy effect. I also got great shine from the gel. The only issue I had was that I had whitish residue while twisting and the products took all night to absorb. This could be that maybe I put too much product. It could also be coming from the Giovanni Direct Leave In conditioner.
