Hair gel gives you a high-power hold that can't be beat. But, unfortunately, it often goes on tacky, dries crunchy, and leaves a white residue. What's a curly-haired girl to do? Curls Cashmere Curl Jelly ($18) is a gel that glides on like silk (probably due to the cashmere extract), making it easier to detangle strands. It weighs curls down so that you get added length and definition, but it doesn't dry crunchy. Now you can get a touchable hold sans the crackle, white flakes, and sticky fingers.
