I was browsing the curly hair forum on reddit and came across the squish to condish thread. I never really bought into the hype but decided to read this article since so many curlies had great success with it. Since reading the attached article, my mind has been opened.

I always have to use gel for my hair to turn out decent and non tangly, even when I'm going to put it up. This came about because I only use flaxseed gel at the moment but I haven't had the time to make it. This is my second time using this method and my hair has never been so shiny with less effort. I recommend every curly try this out. It's a game changer.

There's been 2 threads on this previously, that might come in handy, one from 2014, and one from 2016.

Personally the method is not for me. It seems counterproductive and a darn waste of product, to me. :) But it might work perfectly for other people. A YMMV thing. Not knocking the method.

I've been doing this for about 10 years since I read the curly girl book. The last thing I do in the shower is scrunch conditioner into soaking wet hair and not rinse it out. Then I scrunch with a t-shirt when I get out so it's not dripping. Then I either do nothing else, for big fluffy hair, or a bit of gel, for defined ringlets. 👍

It also sounds a wee bit like http://forums.longhaircommunity.com/showthread.php?t=67634, which is probably a variation on squish to condish in the first place!

I actually like combining both. The squish to condish helps me clump my curls better while smoothing gives me less frizz.

I say this every time but I absolutely adore your hair. So if I'm (somewhat) following your routine, I must be doing something right!
