In general, my clumping improves if I make sure that I leave in some conditioner after rinsing. Sometimes I just leave in extra, or after rinsing, scrunch in a tiny bit extra. I've found this better than using a leave-in.
I've found Curl Junkie Cocoa Creme Lite (CCCL) really helpful. Also try AG:recoil, although that might be a little drying.
The super soaker technique and Smaster's techniques have helped with clumping also. For sealing which I do sometimes, I use the oil that is below in my siggy. It's very lightweight. I only use it on the ends.
Please post back and let us know which ideas/techniques are most helpful. We can all use help in this area.
