Supersoaker method, with Denman, plus I gently resoak again (lightly) after applying my hair hold products...and Aussie instant Freeze gel plus double plopping (once for 5 mins when it is still sopping wet, then scrunch with a second t-shirt, then last plop, for ten mins. Air-dry and voila, massive clumps! I reseal my clump ends with more gel after SOTC so they don't break apart.

I have also found that certain things help my hair to clump better, like KY jelly (if you aren't off glycerin for the winter), loads of moisturizing, DT's with coconut oil, and Epsom Salt (I use some in my RO.) However, smaller clumps (I get those too) do happen. Sometimes, if they are particularly bad, I "whip" my curls (spin them in a curl shape quickly around a finger) with added gel - then when I scrunch, I get pretty ringlet clumps (I have predominantly S shaped clumps.) If you use that last method, you can put two clumps together and twist them into one.

Hth! You have lovely hair!
