I have thick hair and it does much better when I do it all upside down. Did you rake your products through? That makes my hair stringy and not clumpy. Also, when did you flip back over? Was your hair still wet? Do you plop? Do you diffuse?
I rinse and apply product upside down, then plop. When I un-plop, I stand upright and shake my head (like I'm shaking my head to say no) while tilting my head back and to each side. If I touch it too much with my hands, it will get stringy. I also apply my product to really wet hair, which helps it reclump a little after raking the product through.
