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.
 
Thank you, NubQue!

Wet twist vs. Dry twist
I do both. It's kind of how I got in the grove of a healthy hair regimen that works for me. I wash my hair, detangle, seal, then two strand twist it. Once the twist are taken down, I rock the twist-out for 3 or 4 days before re-twisting on dry hair. (Since my hair is already stretched from the previous wash and twist, the dry twist come out with great definition and length.) After wearing the dry twist-out for another 3-4 days, it's time to wash my hair and start the cycle all over again. 
Also, I don't do gel. Any gel. It dries my hair out and leaves product flakes on my 4C hair that look like dandruff once it dries. I prefer cremes that give light hold and a little moisture. 

P.S. Please check out my blog, www.Hollistics.com. It's all about my obsession with healthy beautiful natural hair!

I use Eco/Olive Oil gel to twist with.
For those who says that their hair gets hard/crunchy
The key is to use something before the gel either Moisturizer, conditioner or oil

When I co wash I keep most of the conditioner in and then I layer Grapeseed oil on top of the conditioner before I apply the gel. It leaves my hair defined, soft & flowy.

BTW I would not twist with gel nowadays. I prefer a heavy creamy styler.

Here is CRISCOMIX BY CALVIS that I use for my twists/coils:

2 tbsp of veggie shortening,

1 tbsp of gel

4-5 tbsp of conditioner

1-2 tsp of evoo

a good squeeze of glycerin * you can omit the glycerin in cold winter months* mix this up with a hand mixer on high to get the air in it and make it nice and FLUFFY...this stuff is GREAT for twists, twist out, its very light so wont weigh hair down and it gives amazing definition and moisture
