The last thing I just noticed last week- I've been experimenting with applying product to less than soaking wet hair and the results have been fantastic.
Thinner clumps is very different from "soft waves" or unclumpy though. I achieve thinner clumps the same way you do (raking in, applying to nonsoaking hair, protein also tends to break up my clumps a little more). Thinner clumps mean more volume for me but it also means my hair is more... see-through? I actually prefer bigger clumps if it weren't for the loss of volume.
fine - low porosity - medium density - normal elasticity. Very high dews. Soft water.
