I don't apply my stuff to soaking wet hair. When I get out of the shower, even before detangling, I gently squeeze the length of my hair with a microfiber towel. Then I put it over my scalp hair and sort of gently pat the towel along my scalp. Then I apply leave-in (I detangle after that), then the stylers.
If I apply to soaking wet hair it take way too long to dry and doesn't make that much difference to my curls.
