I have the same problem! I feel that my curls look best if I scrunch in product, but the product doesn't get to my roots/all over my hair if I scrunch it in, so EVERY TIME my hair is dry 50% of it doesn't have product in pretty much, partly because it's so hard to get product all over my hair since it's thick as well.
2c/3a some 3b/Thick/Fine texture?/High Porosity
