I have mostly always washed my hair in the sink, head upside down. But I got the curly girl book and thought I'd try again in the shower and finger comb while condish is in.
I usually wash in the sink and then comb with a wide tooth comb once I"m done and then scrunch while hair is still soaking wet with a microfiber towel.
I get out of the shower and scrunch, I could see very little curl formation. But I continued on. Put in my gel and I could see the top part of the canopy just laying flat.
I finished up because I didn't want to re-do everything in the sink but the shower does NOT work for me. I have fine, thin hair and I'm thinking the weight of the water flattens it out??? I don't know.
I thought I would get more curl formation if I didn't run a comb thru it but not so.
Anyone else have this same issue?

Natural hair color - dark brunette
Fine, thinish hair/3a, 3b
