Interesting about the shower.
I get a long sheet of hair that turns into spirals in the last few inches.
After I shower, I brush in my KCCC
, which gives me one solid straight sheet of hair. I then have to scrunch to get my regular curl pattern started, but it goes along pretty well when I do it.
When my hair is wet, it's more like this.
It will curl up as it dries, but it does it a lot more efficiently and neatly if I use gel!
