My hair is in the 4s, low in porosity, high in density and coarse.

Love: QB - all of it, Bobeam - shampoo bars, Darcy's Botanicals - Pumpkin Seed Conditioner, Coconut Cupuacu Pomade, KBN - Shealoe Leave-in, Oyin - Juices & Berries, Kinky Curly - Knot Today, Ayurvedic treatments, my Denman and the cloud of kinky goodness on my head that I get to play with!
Been doing it for a year or so... Better elongation, less shrinkage. Especially with Ecostyler Olive Oil

Which gel types are yall using? Thinner gels like CJ Pattern Pusha, Curls Goddess Glaze or thicker gels like Eco or Fantasia IC gels?

I'm very curious but I think I would need some slip or I would end up with chunks of wavy hair. Is the hair totally dry or slightly damp?

...i'm supersonic

Current Rotation (always changing): Curl Junkie Curl Rehab as my Leave-In, Blended Beauty Happy Nappy Styles, Entwine Argan Oil, Bobeam Shampoo Bars, QB CTDG and QB AHTB, UFD Curly Magic, B.A.S.K Anything.

See my hair waved up at first too. I put curl activator gel on first, then used my thicker gel for hold.

After I finished my hair was really wavy but I walked into some steam and it started to separate. The next day curls all over the place.

Folks kept asking me if it was my hair and how did i get it like that.
So how much gel are you putting on your hair? Like are you putting enough for your hair to feel wet?

I love using this method :-) I usually do this after a week (or more) old twist out. I have great results using miracaurl. I get pretty good elongation, any elongationis good for me, when my hair was past my shoulders it shrunk up to my earswith a regular wash and go.
Happy, Nappy, and Kinky 24/7!!

I did this today on a section of hair that got too straight after pineappling. That was a quick and easy fix.

Do you notice more or less shrinkage with this method?
