I've been getting nice results from combing through my conditioner (both RO and LI - I rake and then comb) with a wide tooth comb. I get much better product distribution than from just using my fingers, and it seems to help form softer, less clumpy waviness when dry. All I do afterwards is minimal scrunching with a curl cloth to remove excess water/conditioner and it ends up drying really nicely by itself.
Also, I saw this the other day and thought of this thread:
