How to Get More Clumping?

Oops, fingercombing is done when I have my conditioner in for a few minutes. No raking in the products I meant.

Loob ought to really help it gives great clumping. I swear part of it is the dry weather. It finally rained here so my hair is happy but I have to work harder for my hair to look decent on dry days. I guess I need to put a humidifyer in the house for those few times it gets dry here
Low porosity, medium texture.

If it smells good put it in your hair, if it tastes good spit it out!
I'll let you know how the LOOB works for me!

It's rainy here, so I don't think the dry weather is making me frizz! LOL
3B with some 3a. Fell off but am now back on the CG bandwagon and looking for my HG products.
How do you get the knots out if you don't comb or rake? I have very thick 3c hair, and it takes me a good couple of minutes of combing to get knots out before applying product. My hair also has been very frizzy and stringy lately.

Recently I have been having problems clumping too. So for all you successfully clumping curlies-- do you smooth in product while upside down or right side up? I think I am going to try smoothing over scrunching, at least for the leave-in, as scrunching has been failing me of late.
I do it upside down. I get better height and more clumping to the roots upside down

Upside down for me too, always.

i've finally found my HG for clumping!!!

this is so exciting, i've been using this routine for the past week and it hasn't failed (yet), and i'm finally loving my hair!
so here's what i do, condition with B2B pomegrenate and leave most of it in, then i flip my hair upside down and smooth boots and LOOB, then also smooth some ABBA weightless , plop for 15 min and airdry,

Seriously ladies i've struggled so much for clumps since staring cg but this is definatelly working for me, just to let you know i'm a 3B that always had stringy curls and a flot top but this routing gives me volume, curls at the root and clumping, i'm loving it!
Very modified CG. Activate and B2B pomegranate Condish. Re:coil, Joiwhip, LOOB, HE set me up and orange bottle. Boots, cant' remember anymore.
In a place where dry and burned straight hair is so common my wild spanish curls are my greatest weapon!
Yay for finding routines that work!

Well I didn't get a chance to read the replies before I tried it, so I tried smoothing right-side-up rather than upside down. But it still worked great! I will never go back to scrunching-- it is smoothing all the way for me. My hair looked the best it's EVER looked! I will try it upside down next time and see if there could possibly be any room for improvement. Thanks for all the tips, curlies!
