What I did was use a small amount of the SM in small sections, about 6 twists on each side of my head, and then applied an even bigger amount of gel to each section. I didn't bother actually mixing them in a container; I just wanted to try it out first before dumping a bunch of one thing inside the other. My hair was automatically elongated and very moisturized. After that, I did smaller twists from each section, until I had about 15-20 twists on each side. I wrapped it up for bed and left the twists in for two days. When I took then out, I'd had one of the best, well-defined twists outs that I'd ever achieved so far during my entire hair journey.
Normally, my twist outs last for 3-4 days, no matter what I use to define them, but this stuff is definitely a keeper. I will be using this SM mixed with the ES for my best twist-outs ever!
Peace out, curly mamas!
