leaves slight crunchiness. Unfortunate! I love trigger sprays, they are so much easier on my overworked right hand! I like to use it as part of my LOC cocktail. Because it is a liquid, I spray it in damp hair after washing and minimal towel drying. Since it is protein based, I will alternate this with CHI spray. I also layer it in my fine, curly hair with Liqwid spray. I use Pure Happy Silk, then a light weight oil and finally a leave in cream.
