    for wash n go's...a heavy gel or styling product does the trick. I typically use Fantasia IC Gel or [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Kinky-Curly-Curling-Custard-p-778.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=kinkycurly-curling-custard]Kinky-Curly Curling Custard[/buylink]. With everything else...I end up with really really big hair. These products cut the volume in half!

    twistouts are another option. after having my hair twisted for about a week, nothing swells my twistout. The wave pattern is almost permanent until I wash it. fresh twistouts don't usually last very long for me though.

    I've recently been leaving in a lot of my elucence in my hair when I wash and then putting my product in. I'm seeing that the added weight of the conditioner left in is making my hair hang down a lot more AND increasing definition.
