Default How to apply LI and curl creams

So there are tons of videos and techniques on how to apply hair gel but what about LI and curl creams.

For gel I usually separate my hair into 3 or 4 sections starting from the bottom to the top and scrunch the product in. I find that I cannot just flip my hair over and scrunch the product in because the product does not get evenly distributed through my hair.

Today I experimented with CJ hibiscus banana honey butta for the first time. I wanted to see if I could get away with just using this as a LI and styler. I have no real experience with anything other than gel.

This product was thicker and I wasnt sure how to apply it. I just quickly smoothed it over my crown and underneath and smoothed with fingers. I did add the slightes bit of KCCC because its raining. My hair turned out surprisingly well. I was nervous because I love gel but Im trying to find other things that are softer. You could tell it wasnt evenly distributed because it was frizzy in places.
