Method:

  1. Start with freshly washed and deep-conditioned hair
  2. Remove your towel or old t-shirt
  3. Put your hair into four sections if it isn’t already sectioned off
  4. Take out one of the sections in the back
  5. Spray it with water until it is sopping wet
  6. Apply conditioner
  7. Comb it through using your wide-toothed comb
  8. Secure section back up with your hair clip
  9. Repeat until the whole head has been conditioned
  10. Again undo a section in the back
  11. Spray your hair with water until it is sopping wet
  12. Use your fingers to part an even smaller section to work with and keep the rest away with a hair clip
  13. Rake the curl cream through your hair with your fingers
  14. Next, rake the gel through your hair with your fingers
  15. Allow your hair to hang freely undisturbed while you repeat the process for the rest of your head
  16. Remember to keep your hair sopping wet while you apply your styling products
  17. Do not touch your hair until it is completely dry
  18. Air-dry your hair or use a hair dryer with or without a diffuser
  19. Using a hair dryer with a diffuser attachment will create more defined curls with lots of shrinkage. Air-drying or using a dryer without a diffuser will create longer, less defined curls
  20. Do not touch your hair until it is completely dry
  21. Style your hair into place using your fingers

Night:

  1. Put on your satin-lined cap to sleep

Morning:

  1. Remove your satin-lined cap
  2. In an empty spray bottle, mix 2 parts water, 1 part conditioner, and 1 part gel
  3. Spray your hair with the mixture
  4. Shake your head from left to right and front to back
  5. Style your hair into place using your fingers

Note: Your styling products should contain either no silicones or water-soluble silicones to prevent buildup and rinse out of your hair easily.
