Generic Paul Mitchell Straightening Gel .....Again

This Generic Paul Mitchell Straightening Gel I found at Sally's has turned out to be a little treasure...who knew.

I used it for good ol' regular double strand twist. Not flat-twists, just regular twists hanging down and it turned out very nicely. It keeps my hair soft, defined, and of course the biggest part for me is, Less Shrinkage. This is a big deal for me because my hair is short right now and I want to use products that will combat shrinkage.

That is one of the main reasons that I've abandoned Kinky Curly Custard for a little while now. As much as I love its natural ingredients, the gel still makes my hair shrink. I really do love the product and will return to it once my hair gets to the length where shrinkage doesn't matter.

I am conteplating unraveling my twists and seeing what it looks like but I'm trying to think of a product that'll keep it nice once its un-twisted. I could use more of the gel but I don't want product overload. I'm thinking of glycerin and water. We shall see.
