What's the best twist cream??

Hello all,

I'm reposting this in this board. I posted it in the 4b forum by accident. Any who...

I was wondering what you would suggest as a really good twist cream for a twist out, or flat twist out that will leave my hair shiny, soft, moveable, and elongated. I am protein sensitive and my hair tends to dry out from products containing carbomer.

I have been eyeing the Donna Marie Dream Curling Cream, but I want to get your input on this as well as other products you've tried.

Thanks to all that responds!
IMO , coconut oil and unrefined Shea butter :-)
Im not sure if it has protein, but Qhemet Burdock Root Buttercream leaves my twists soft
Smacked with a head full of Dreamy tight Coils that refuse to have it any other way...
Finally maintaining a clean, moisturized scalp!
I'm really getting into my Nutiva Organic Coconut Oil now

For more hold I recommend cantu shea butter leave cream or karen body beautiful butter love. I like the butter love b/c it defines and smells great. Cantu gives me to much definition im not a huge fan of the jerry curl look.
