CurlTalker CSteen85 describes her method for getting clumpy curls—something many curly girls are definitely looking for:

So, I don't know if I invented a new technique or what, but I figured out a way to achieve clumps for myself—and they're good ones, too!

I did my normal routine with No Poo and One Condition, which I don't rinse out all the way, so it makes that squinchy sound when I scrunch and it's still dripping and I add AnGel.

But here's what I do. I coat my hands with the gel and then scrunch, but each palmful of hair that I cup, I squeeze and pump eight times for each section.

As long as I can hear that sound and it feels squishy when I pump my hand open and closed, I know it's working.

When I take my hand away, I'm left with a really soft-looking clump!

I did this all over my head to apply the gel and diffused and got gorgeous clumps!

I really find that the pumping helps distribute the product really, really well—especially for my super-dense hair.
