What is your porosity?
Do you live in a humid or dry climate?
Also, sometimes it can be a technique thing (referring to your failed twist outs). I have tweaked certain things about my twists over time so that I can get the best definition possible...unless I want a fuller set, in which case I do some things slightly differently.
I have seen that shea moisture products can be hit or miss for some people.
