Default Do you SOTC naked or use a product?

Just wondering what people do. I have used a tiny bit of SS Emollience on my hand to SOTC. It was nice. Would like to see what people suggest.

Sometimes I SOTC with bare hands or, when I expect some moist still under the gel cast, a cloth diaper. But most of the time I use a tiny bit of AVG+CCCCL

I just use my hands. Mostly because I'm at work and I don't have time to use a product! Plus, there's always the fear of my hair looking greasy.

I normally use either SS Emollience, JCS N&S, or CJ CIAB. but sometimes I do it "naked", which makes it more soft and fluffy, but I like the added shine that the oils give.

Lol, I have a product stash at work! A dedicated drawer even!

I do it with bare hands but with the diffuser going. I do a final little scrunch with some product - either CJ Pattern Pusha or Kevin Murphy Motion Lotion.

I do it with bare hands, everything I've tried weighs my hair down.

I SOTC with... water....
I just wet my hands because touching my hair with dry hands makes it frizzy, and SOTCing with product sometimes weighs my hair down.

Sometimes I use a bit of conditioner as well, but most of the times just water

I scrunch out any crunch with bare nekkid hands. Later on in the day I might scrunch with a bit of water or oils or just bare hands to get more volume.

I only rarely use something if the cast is just so hard I can't break it up. Then, I have the best luck with the slightest touch of either Deva Set it Free or CHS Tweak evenly emulsified between my hands. Butters, creams, oils, etc. weigh me down too much.

Actually, I can't remember the last time I had to do that. Don't even carry either in my purse any more, so I guess I'll be up the creek if I need to, LOL!

I either use my bare hands or a few drops of argan oil.
