I have to start with very wet hair to establish some clumping and keep frizz and springiness at bay. But I have to then scrunch water and weight out of those clumps to keep the curls from stretching. (And have to add a little gel back in to my then damp hair before plopping.)

So I guess I sort of do BOTH things.
As I was reading these posts I was thinking hmm maybe I should stop at the first dollop of LOOB and do the rest when it's less wet. Now you've clinched it! I'll try this tonight/tomorrow! I've searched high & low on these boards for things that cause shrinkage but the threads are usually wanting less shrinkage. (I may have even started a thread asking but I'm not sure)
