I get really good curl definition by applying products to wet hair upside down and then scrunching out excess water as I go (this helps to promote clumping).
Next (and this is really key w/finer hair) w/hair still flipped over, I start diffusing upside down (High heat, Low setting). This allows curls to form more freely w/out getting crushed by gravity & the weight of hair. BTW, it also gives really great volume & lift to roots.
Once hair is about 30-40% dry, I flip upright and continue till finished. All thru the process I gently lift ends upward (sort of like pixie drying) and once cast begins to set alternate in cool setting to promote shine and calm any frizz.
Back on the CG wagon!
