Hmmm...I do a modified pixie. I don't use clips or section my hair, because I don't have a ton of it...but, as the diffuser runs and my head is upside-down, I "cradle" my forming curls gently as I press them flatly towards my scalp. Kind of a plop-in-motion.
Hair Type: 2B/3A hybrid, I believe. Had it short for about 5 years, and have since let it grow. Layers have brought out the curl...and I haven't gone 'straight' since!
