I just realized -- this would be interesting to try on days when my usual process isn't working well. I can usually tell while scrunching, and looking in the mirror, when the clumps just aren't happening the way they should.
This is usually after I've added gel, b/c that's when I can really start to see it.... but I could try adding more water and then, I suppose, a little more gel.
Thanks for the tip!
Wurly and proud!
