I think it depends on what look you are going for. I have 2c on my canopy and sides, and 3a under all of that. If I put stuff in SOAKING wet, it weighs everything down and makes everything a LOT straighter, more wavy than curly. I also agree that applying wet means my hair doesnt absorb any product, as the water dries off, it looks like I didn't even put anything on. So, I scrunch moisture out after I shower. I add leave in first, then scrunch water out, apply curling gel/creme (SM smoothie or KCCC) and then FSG or KCSS.
