1)BRUSH DRY HAIR:
Use natural oils for best results.Oils will penetrate deep into the hair rather then freshly washed and conditioned hair.Brush hair naturally to distribute its natural oils and drape a towel over your shoulders to catch drips
2)GO SECTION BY SECTION:
Work the oil into your hair section by section at a time.Starting from the end and using your fingertips apply oil few drops at a time.
3)LOCK IN MOISTURE SIT BACK AND RELAX:
Lock in moisture by wrapping a towel around your head and leaving the oil for 20 to 25 minutes.For best results leave it overnight
4)DRY SHAMPOO THEN RINSE:
Apply natural shampoo to your hair if possible.Work it into your hair for 5 to 10 minutes and then rinse off.Rinse with warm water
5)REBALANCE HAIR MOISTURE:
Hair is already moist so a light conditioner is all you need.
