It's a great product! I sometimes do the twirling thing too and it gives a really nice look to my hair - especially in the humid weather, when my hair tends to get very large.
HG:
Winter - Aura Naturelle Gel/virgin coconut oil
Summer - Dep Sport Gel or Biosilk Rock Hard Gelee/almond oil on ends only
GVP Conditioning Balm or Curly Hair Solutions Silk Leave in as leave-ins depending on weather. Coconut oil before/after coloring grays.
2b/c mix waves/curls - coarse, frizz prone, med. thick, porous, at-home color, protein sensitive but I still need it sometimes, glycerin-sensitive (I think) in high humidity.
