This gel does not leave my hair crunchy, which I love. It also smells great.
I find that my hair does move with this gel, but it springs back into shape very quickly. Its rain season in the PacNW for me, so my hood is always up when I'm outside. When I get inside, everything has flattened a bit, but a quick shake or a tousle with my fingers and everything comes back. On days I don't the gel I'm stuck with flat hair all day, so I'd say this is a good balance between hold and movement.
