Default Do you wring out before conditioning/styling?

I never have, I thought it was better to apply product to soaking wet hair. I read in a magazine that hair can get too full, so you should wring out before doing so. I tried it for the past few days, and my hair is behaving so much better! It is more defined & even all around. If you don't already do this, I suggest you try it. =]

I always gently squeeze out excess water with a towel. It's very true that your hair can get too full of liquid and if it's already saturated, it won't take product as well as it would if you got some of the water out.

I always squeeze out excess water, before conditioning and using products Otherwise the conditioner would just glide off my hair and onto the shower floor, and the products (gel) wouldn't have much holding power.

I squeeze out extra water so it's not dripping down my neck and back but other than that - I do get better results when adding product to very wet hair.

Apply product to anything other than dripping-wet hair causes my weak curl pattern to break up. If you have a decent amount of curl you may have more luck with squeezed hair.

I find that putting my products in when my hair is dripping wet isn't very effective, but I'm probably letting it dry too long before applying mousse and gel - maybe 5 minutes. I've vowed to find a happy medium - it's just that it's so tempting to scrunch when it's wet, feels like seaweed.

I scrunch my hair so that it's not dripping wet - then comb and apply products. Then after that's all done, I scrunch out excess water with a t-shirt then diffuse.
Wringing can sometimes make you lose curl formation and cause breakage if you do it to harshly.
