And I'm still of the belief that the super-clumpers almost always have 3A hair like rudeechick, and the super-stringies are usually 3B.
3A hair seems to be more consistant in its coiling, 3B has a multitude of curl types on one head so the hair just can't clump. So we need to just let it do it's thing.
Just my 2 cents.

Hm, difficult to describe.

I also have one spot were I get a weird clump - two or three curls with a larger curl diameter sort of curling into each other, resulting in a very odd curl shape. Luckily this one is mostly hidden by the hair on top.
