Default 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.

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!

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.

I put my gel on soaking wet hair, scrunch, then plop in a turban.

ditto. and with the curls creams, i use them after blotting (is this the same as scrunching with a microfiber towel?) AND plopping with a tee-shirt.

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.
