I tried the sectioning this morning! It worked! The underside of my hair is as curly as the top. I've never seen it like this!
My only problem now is I am too crunchy. I believe it's because I only wet my hair this morning and added more gel.
I'm going to co-poo tomorrow and try it again (still with the glob of honey!) and see what happens. I might be one of those every day co-poo curlies.
