This might sound counter-intuitive, but have you tried combing your hair after applying your products? I notice the same thing with my hair as I scrunch in multiple products--the more stuff I add, the more spider hairs I get. But I notice that if I run a comb through my hair (I use a strange looking detangling/conditioner comb), it re-clumps. I do one last scrunch before I plop and it seems to keep things together a little more. You could also try looking up the super-soaker method.
