im not saying this is an accurate comparison because this has only been the first time trying it with out glycerine and there may be other contributing factors i havent thought of:
my hair stayed fresh looking longer without glycerine.
it seemed to stay moisturized longer and didnt need to dampen it as often or use as much product.
hair also felt cleaner longer and i didnt have to wash or rinse it as often.
without glycerine my hair seemed to loc faster which means the style didnt last as long
take down was hassle and took twice as long or longer since i didnt retwist
very little debris and buildup during take down, hair didnt look or feel dirty
detangling after the take down was easier since there wasnt a lot of sticky debris left in my hair
at this point im so over twists and wont be doing them again until ive fully forgotten this latest take down nightmare
