i have found the secret to clumping!

I'm so glad I read this thread. I got myself a brush-- it's a Christophe Denman (looks lke the real thing, but is all one piece). I put my condish in, use a pick to get the tangles out, turn upside down & brush it smooth. It takes all the rogue individual strands & puts them back in line so I don't get any frizz. Even after rinsing a bit, raking in leave in & scrunching in gel, clumps up the wazoo. My hair gets so clumpy that I have to actually break it up some! Thanks for the tips guys!

Still upside down, I rake in GF CnS & re:coil then gather it all back into one big rope, scrunch in gel to break up the clumps & squeeze out extra water. My head doesn't go back up until I'm plopping-- by that time, I'm ready to pass out

I didn't know what else to call them. Out-of-control-curl any-which-way strands from hell is too long.

I'm probably upside down less than 5 minutes. I get some stretching in at the same time. The backs of my legs are nice & flexible now. It helps to have the products open & handy.

Good point. I'm sure that could be turned into quasi-yoga pose or something. Now to look for one of those brushes. Several days in a row of misbehaving strands and I may just be brave enough to give this a go.
