I apply my curl enhancer to soaking wet hair to get the best waves and clumps. If it's not really wet, it doesn't wave very well and feels weird when drying.

But experiment! What one person likes, another may not like. And I wouldn't apply straight BRHG to my hair! I always mix it with another gel.
