Soaking Wet or Blotted?

When do you apply product? on soaking wet hair or blotted?

I'm not sure what I like....most days I blot first, but I've been experimenting this week with soaking wet. It seems like with soaking wet, I get less hold, but more of a natural feel, but my hair seems to lose it's hold by the end of the day.

I have fine, but thick 3A hair.
If I put it on soaking wet hair the products comes off in the towel when I blot. If I blot first the products are able to soak into my hair and the product seems to work better for me.
Hair almost to waist. Brown with light brown highlights. 3b spiral curls. I love curly hair.

I was putting my product on soaking wet hair but I would have to reapply it after de-plopping, so now I blot first, then apply products. It's working much better for me now!

No 'poo since March 2004
Vo5/Suave/White Rain - co wash
DevaCARE OneC, CK, Dove Curl Defining Styling Creme, Biolage Gelee,
I do both, gel on soaking wet hair, especially in summer- I have less frizz if I put gel on soaking wet hair.

If I use a cream I put that on blotted hair because it seems to work good and it dries faster that way. This is my favorite in the winter.
2b/3a, primarily use Jessicurl and DevaCurl products, Curls Hair Tea conditioner and various gels. I'm modified CG-ish since 5/04.

I do both - I apply most product to soaking wet hair, then scrunch with a microfiber towel, then scrunch in more product to the blotted hair.
