My guess is sacrifice a virgin?

But really I think using your fingers to comb then Rinsing will help. There is also the super soaker method that is mentioned on this forum as well as the icequeen method. There should be a sticky on the general discussion board that lists different methods. HTH

A curling iron?

I've been using a Denman to really distribute product evenly and it's helped a bit.

Haha! You are probably right! I've tried some of the methods. So far brushing with a fine tooth comb in the shower helps the most. Who would have guessed? As a curly girl I was under the assumption anything other than a wide tooth comb was the devil.

Last time I sacrificed a virgin, I got nothing but frizz. May have to try that again now that the dews are higher.

I've never tried a fine-toothed comb or denman brush, but I'm considering it after reading how many curlies like it. I usually do a modified super-soaker, and then I use my fingers to form the clumps/curls the way I want them. I sort of spread my fingers wide and then stick them in my hair (so I have a "clump" between each finger), then squeeze my fingers together and twist the hair so it all curls in one direction. I don't know if that explanation made any sense, but I've found this helps with clumping and a more uniform curl pattern. If I just supersoak, I don't get as much clumping and my hair will curl/bend in different directions - I guess I'm sort of using my fingers like a comb, so the fine-tooth comb or denman would probably work for me too. Also, I do this upside down and then plop right after.

I'm going to have to try that method. Is it bad that I can't ever have second day hair because I'm too excited about trying a new method?
