Ok, real dunce time!!

I tried this technique last night, the clumps were fab while I had my head upside down, but then when I turned my head over and put in curl creme my hair went fluffier than I've ever seen it - not a blooming clump in sight

Can someone please tell me what I'm doing wrong

All i want is nice curly hair - why does it have to be so hard, straightening was a doddle next to this
