boots curl creme: How to apply?

On a trip to the UK, I bought pink "boots curl creme," much loved by some forumites here. So far, I have tried two ways to apply the cream but neither produced good results.
Because of skin irritations, I always "wash" my hair over the bathtub (head-over) with conditioner and leave in a tiny little bit of conditioner in a second round. Then I continued with...

1 - vinegar-lemon-filtered water rinse, squeeze out excess water, scrunch in boots cream, plop
Result: Most of the hair did not get any of the cream but it looked somehow greasy

2 - rake boots cream through the hair, then vinegar-lemon-filtered water rinse, squeeze out excess water, plop
Result: Curl pattern was destroyed, tons of frizz

How do you apply the curl cream? My hair is over-shoulder long and I used about the size of a hazelnut of the cream. (The vinegar/lemon rinse is essential in my routine since the water is so hard here that I have to de-stone the tea kettle twice a month, even though we use filtered water only.)

Thank you!
'taltalim' is hebrew for 'curls' *
this is why i didn't like this stuff and in the process of trying to give it away!
I bought 3 tubs when it was 3 for 2 and only used about 1/8 of one of them no matter how i styled my hair it looked wrong and greasy.

You might be using too much. I hated this stuff at first because i was using lots andd my hair felt gunky. But some people on here explained how they used it so I experimented a bit.

When I use it now, I put it on after my cleaning routine is done, and my hair is dripping all over the place. I literally just dab my finger tips in the pot and rub it with water in my hands til i have a thin white film on my hands, then smooth it over my hair before products.

Hope this helps

But then again, too few to mention...
After my hair is rinsed and is still dripping wet, I scrunch in a very small dab. Probably the size of a dime. I can't use it alone though, I need a gel over it.
Handle every stressful situation like a dog. If you can't eat it or hump it.....Piss on it and walk away.
