I'm trying to figure out what I'm doing wrong. I read over the super-soaker thread and noted that everyone applied all their products to soaking wet hair...including gel.

I can't follow all the super-soaker methods yet as my hair is too short to plop.

But, what I have been doing is applying my leave-in or curling creams to soaking wet hair...then, I use a t-shirt to scrunch out the excess water. Then, I apply gel. My result has always been kind of stringy curls...and stringy hair.

Now, maybe that is just how my hair is going to be...but, I was wondering if I should also apply the gel to soaking wet hair...then scrunch dry. Until it's long enought to plop. (which will be awhile)

So...guess my question is...do you apply the gel as well when your hair is soaking wet? Then scrunch out the water with a towel?

So far just experimenting with anything and everything!!!!
