I second this. I used to finger-comb my conditioner (Suave) into my hair and I got really good slip - but then I ended up with some tiny curls that were really sort of wimpy. My hair is very wavy rather than curly, so thinner clumps yields very stringy looking waves!
Recently though I've started doing something different in how i apply the Suave, rather than changing the product itself - rather than finger combing it through my hair and getting it all slippery, I rub the product between my palms and then "squeeze" my clumps to get the product on. And I squeeze down the hair, starting from where it comes out of my head to the ends. I find this promotes the clumping and then I get much nicer, soft bouncy waves rather than stringy ones!
