I feel like I'm in 5th grade again, with no idea what to do with my hair when I just put it up every day and let it frizz.
That's funny because I say the exact same thing. When you start CG you definitely feel like you are styling your hair at a 5th grade level. And, unlike the actual 5th grade, you are the only one styling at a 5th grade level.

I more-than-suspect that those of us who feel like "imposters" would also get very little curl with raking vs. scrunching? ALSO, does ice queen method really work on the rest of you guys? It's all in the scrunching, I'm telling you!
I absolutely vote scrunching and not raking. I do my own version of the icequeen method. Love the icequeen!
I think scrunching and the icequeen method would have a high success rate for wavies with a weak curl pattern.
