I guess I'm the odd woman out. I don't like rake and shake. I prefer SMOOTH and SHAKE. I have combo hair
(3c/3b S curls..my hair doesn't coil so I don't know if that's why rake and shake doesn't work for me or not)
so all raking does is leave me with a bunch of puffed out waves. I don't prefer that look.
So what I do is if I'm using a gel or cream..is do what the girl in the video did but I SMOOTH the product from roots to tips between my two hands. I don't rake. Then I hold by the ends and shake like the lady in the video. Air dry, hooded dryer, or diffuse.
I get better clumped
that way..and I'm looking less wavy.
