I have found that raking is the only way I get good coverage at the crown, which reduces frizz. So I put in my LI, throw a couple of handfuls of cool water at my head to get it a little drippy, then rake in my gel or gel/styler combo, whatever I'm using, standing right side up. I use a squirt for the crown/back and a squirt for each side. Then I flip upside down and use a squirt for the underside of my hair. While I'm still hanging upside down, I run my fingers through so my hair is all pointing downward, then scrunch to get the curls going. HTH!
