Hey Wavy! Thank you so much for the compliments! You can follow your routine, and then scrunch it in again. I don't think it would have any effect on thr final result to use it twice. I double dip with my gel sometimes, using it first and with the 2nd application. BTW, you and your hair are gorgeous!

I do this sometimes if I see a frizz patch forming or an area with less shrinkage or sometimes all over and it does work! I should do this more often! I have been using my Komaza coconut pudding for this since it is not sticky and gets everything to clump and shrink nicely.

Ooh, I'll have to try this! It hadn't occurred to me to use the Komaza pudding...

Really, no frizz? So DEL when you do it do you apply gel to sopping wet hair and then again as others are saying?

I tend to stay away from application unless my hair is soaking wet in fear of frizz as well. Going to have to try this tomorrow, methinks.

Also smasters - I agree - gorgeous eyes!

Also, how much gel are you longer haired gals scrunching in at the 50% dry point?

I usually dry to about 75% also so when I add gel at the 1/2 way point I'm diffusing 5mins or so.

Depending on what products I'm using will dictate whether they go on sopping wet hair. Because of Opera's thread (another thread I meant to post on sorry Opera) FSG has finally worked for me this Winter because I don't apply it sopping wet.

KCCC, DMMG, DEVA, CIAB works best for me on very wet hair. Most of the creams I use will go on lightly blotted hair. I've been meaning to try CIAB on blotted hair because that's how WHC uses it and I'm curious how this will work for me...

I use some FOTE or Deva Angel about a qtr. size scrunched in or I'll mix BRHG with FOTE if I'm needing extra hold. Straight BRHG was too thick & didn't work as well.

I tried this today and love that I have no frizz, but hair feels a little producty. I did an Amla and coconut milk treatment, cowashed with Tigi MM (for the slip to remove amla), used Biolage CB as rinse out and a dab for leave in, then FSG. At about 50% diffused, I scrunched in a nickle size dab of KCCC. Holy moley...curly!!! I think the combo of the many rich products today caused the "producty" issue. I'm anxious to try this with other products, especially Komaza CP.
smasters, you have lovely hair and ITA, beautiful eyes...you look awesome!

I did this yesterday and today with excellent results both days.

Used VO5 as a leave-in and then raked-in Biotera gel. Dried hair (without diffuser) to about 50% dry and then scrunched-in Eco-Styler Krystal and let it air dry the rest of the way. I have soft, bouncy curls with virtually no frizz.

Thanks Del2C for linking this thread. I hadn't read it before.

I've been doing this as well. In particular with Spiral Solutions. I do everything normal and then I diffuse about 5 mintes..it's enough to get most of the squish out but not so as it's crunchy at all yet and I scrunch in another bit of her Firm Hold Gel. Since the FHG isn't producty at all and not sticky this works really well and "sets" the hair so nicely. LOVE this technique!!!

I tried it once a long time ago with BRHG but didn't work..too sticky and made my hair producty and gross. I think because the FHG is so no producty this works great for me!

I'm glad someone tried this on air dried hair. I never diffuse...

I'm going to try this tomorrow since it will probably be a snow day and if it doesn't work, oh well .

I tried it this evening. I think I dried it too much in back before adding the KCCC. It worked GREAT on the sides and in front, though. Next time, I won't wait so long...

Well don't let it explode just yet ...I just came in to say you and your hair are gawjus, just gawjus! If I had your lashes, I wouldn't have to pay for mine

Idk if this would work on my hair or not...I did try this for a while in December...in the beginning it worked really well...then it seemed like it stopped working. Idk if *I'm* slow or my hair is, but this tends to happen a lot

Did it work for you? I'm intrigued by the process. I don't diffuse either, but I'm thinking I need to replace my lost diffuser soon. My hair is on a unhappy kick. I need something to help it be happy. The frizz is starting to get to me.
