I prefer my FSG (2 tbsp FS and 1 cup water) on the thin side. It is a major curl definer but leaves a bit of crunch on my hair which I don't like. So now I use 3 tbsp FSG plus 1 tbsp jojoba oil plus 11/2 tsp glycerin on my 4a midneck length (if stretched with fingers) hair. My curls are defined, shiny and with no crunch.
