Not perfect. But progress.
One variation on Rudee's method that has helped me: I apply my base (curl cream) before cupping/soaking, but then I don't apply the final product (gel for hold) until after plopping, when my hair is still wet but no longer soaking wet. I think (but am not sure) that that helps with the hold.
