I SOTC with oil on my hands.

But several people on here have tried SOTC while wearing rubber gloves and say it's the best thing ever! I've yet to try it, but that's cheap and easy, so give it a shot!

I'll try it and see what happens, thank you!

I use a minute dab of conditioner or moisturizing styler in my hands - just enough that my palms aren't dry. My favorite is Shea Moisture Coconut Hibiscus Smoothie.

I want to try Jane Carter's Nourish and Shine (I think that's the name) and it's a pomade to see if it'll melt the gel cast and leave my hair looking perfect, lol.
