I give up! Seriously! I am going to stop trying twistouts using glycerin this summer. Every time I do so, it goes up in poofs! (unless I use heavy gel or something...then it stays a little better but it doesn't feel as nice and is a little too "defined" for my taste.)
Other than that, my hair just wants to revert and go crazy. Oftentimes, it balls up onto itself instead of reverting into its normal shape and it causes major knots and tangles. I have broken some hairs trying to undo the crazy knots at times as well. SMH
As, you may know, I love my shrinkage and don't have any issues with my twistouts reverting when I don't use glycerin in my products. Normally, when my hair shrinks up for day 2, 3, and 4 it has a "unity" to it :) However, the newer products that I have been trying that contain glycerin has caused my fro to revert in a sporadic way! It's seriously crazy!
Certain products like Shea Moisture Curling Souffle and Curl Enhancing Smoothie, don't cause my twistouts to ball up onto themselves...it just bushes out. Where as the Eden Body Works Curl Defining Creme and Pudding Souffle products caused my fro to ball up! Even my Giovanni Smooth As Silk conditioner caused my ends to ball up when doing a twistout... but it works FANTASTIC for my true wash and gos. I had a "sort of" success with using Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie and Eco Styler Argan oil gel and tiny twists lol ... but it was not my favorite twist out "look" lol. (I'll be posting that soon.) I'm not sure how it would have held with larger twists, but I'm exhausted just by the thought of trying lol!
(BTW, I just tried the Shea Moisture Curling Souffle and Curl Enhancing Smoothie for a true wash and go and it works AWESOME for my fros' shrinkage! I'll post a video for that soon as well :)
Twist out below is from using olive oil, avocado butter, and Giovanni Smooth as Silk conditioner, and 4hrs later lol!!!
