Can you guys please explain the difference between "squish" and "scrunch"? How are you squishing in your products? When they say to squish "each curl" does that mean you rake and squish separately?

On a related note, I'm a little confused & have been meaning to ask how longer-haired people are supposed to scrunch, anyway -- do you only scrunch from the very bottom of your hair & "accordion" it up, or do you also poke your fingers through your hair farther up closer to the scalp and grab your hair & scrunch from there? I used to try the latter but it really broke up any clumps, so I'm back to just accordioning with my hands or with my towel or tee. Do you loosely cup the hair in your hands while scrunching or do you squeeze the ends together? Maybe I should have started another thread about the scrunching.
