I used IC Fantasia to do some twists and I loved it.

I used to twist with Blended Beauty's Happy Nappy Styles but it would never last more than 3 days. Last week, I used ORS Lock & Twist gel for the first time and I love it. It lasts longer and looks better.

Question:
 
1. Are y'all twisting on wet or dry hair? 
 
2. How much gel are you using?
 
TIA!

Thanks much, Niik!!  I like twisting on stretched hair, so maybe I'll try your method.  I was worried about the gel making my hair shrink up too much.

I only twist with homemade FSG. Can't imagine anything else. Used to use ORS loc & twist gel and others. But flaxseed is a gift from the gods, I tell ya. Nothing more than that for me and I'm good to go. On day three of my twistout, and each day is better. Love this stuff.

I have told myself a million times that I'm going to make some FSG and I've YET to do it. CryCry I'm such a slacker sometimes. Ouch

In Response to Loola

I twist on damp hair...if its wet, its shrinks to much but if its dry once I wear a twist out, its not as defined.

I just put a small amount on my finger and start twisting, if the my fingers get dry before I get to the end of my twist, I dip it in the gel again. But I don't saturate it.
