I will say that I've had better "clumps" just by plopping for about 10-15 min. and then carefully diffusing. About the third time I did this, I had the most AMAZING hair (for me, at least). It was better than anything I could've asked for.

But I can't get it to be like that or anything close

So I'm pretty sad because it really got my hopes up after all summer of trying new things and not liking them one bit.

I do have two questions though:

Does diffusing your hair upside down make a difference in how your curls react?

Does air drying make your curls better, or does it make any difference?
