sorry what do you mean smooth and scrunch? i've always either raked followed by super soaker, or just scrunched products into very wet hair. i would say the raking followed by super soaker works best for me as the product distributes evenly and then the curls are reformed by the super soaking. however, i'm curious about smoothing and scrunching. what do you mean by that?
