Why do people alway apply their leave-ins and gels while their hair is soaking wet? Is their some specific reason? 'Cause normally I try to get some of the access moisture out of my hair first (dab w/ a t-shirt). Thanks!

    I usually put water soluble leave ins on when hair is wet, and more oily ones when its dry. I personally try not to touch my hair much while its dry because it can mess up the curl and my hair is so much more manageable wet.

    I'll be honest with you.. I think it's really odd when people put it in SOAKING wet, like right when they get out of the shower. It doesn't make much of a difference. I usually scrunch it with my towel , then while my hair is still wet, put on my mousse/curlcreme.

    I guess it just works best for most people. Because I guess if you put your hair products in when your hair is still wet it locks in the moisture. Plus it's better to do that because it doesn't make your hair frizzy. I'd imagine it would mess up your hair more/make it more frizzy by putting on your products while your hair is dry. (Which is what I do, haha. I should really start putting my hair products in when my hair is wet, I did it once before and I believe my hair was much nicer than when applying products when my hair is dry)

    i do it when my hair is soaking wet because it frizzs up wicked quickly. if i wait like five minutes there is already frizz i could've avoided by putting gel in when its soaking wet
