Oh the clumps! The Icequeen Method

Like Tree6Likes

Glad this is working so well for people regardless of conditioner or hair type. I don't plop with it. I am finding I love the clipping method I mentioned earlier - inserting clips like they are salad tools. I've been getting great curls at my roots with them.

It's nice to experiment without having to buy something.

I've been clipping that way too and it's finally working for me. I have struggled with clipping for 7 months and finally it works. Icequeen you know this is becoming known as the "Icequeen mothod"...

Oh I just can't wait to see how the Icequeen Method (that's what I'm calling it too) works with my shorter hair. I'm thinkin it might turn into volume city! Oh the experiments I have planned!!

I tried this today, and I got mostly-great results - but instead of increased volume (something I was a little afraid of, due to the poofy tendencies of my hair), it was almost flat, which is not something my hair ever really does. I'm still liking the results and I hope I can find a way to do this that doesn't make it huge OR flatten the roots out.

If you're detangling with the same condioner..you do the squishing, scruching in step after the detangling/combing?

I am SO excited! I used this method and look what I got! The first time I have had curls with such great S pattern. I grabbed some Suave Natural Coconut Conditioner and used that to cowash today, followed by AOHR and leave in with KCKT. I scrunched with MF towel to get out moisture then scrunched upside down with KCCC and AnGEL. I used too much because it is slightly weighed down but I could still scrunch the crunch pretty good. Needless to say I still need a good frizz fighter. Thanks for the great thread, I'm so excited!

Does anyone find that you break the clumps apart if you rake in your product after using this method as opposed to scrunching it in? TIA

For me personally, raking would have left a poofy, frizzy mess! It's always different for other people though. I have to say after this method I am having the BEST hair day of my life!

However, today I used KCKT and KCCC, and I always apply KCKT via raking. So far from what I can tell, it brought my hair from looking really really crazy (when I just got out of the shower) to more under control but there's still some added volume. I can't say much about clumping yet because if I get clumping, it happens during the drying process

eh, I usually rake a little and then scrunch, and I've still had some seriously fabulous clumping. Oh, and I've solved the volume issue too. This method makes my hair a little crazy, but in a great way. I'm totally loving it!

i really like this method, it gives me more root pattern and much better curl, but it doesnt clump better ( although i've never really had that much of a problem with that so much) it seems like it clumps less in the back and sometimes i end up with random peices of hair thats supposed to be on the back of my head at the front of my head.. i still love this though thanks!

Thanks everyone! I'm pretty sure that makes my clumps break up cause the first time I used the method I def had major clumps going on, but the second time, when I raked product in, i didn't get clumps like before.
