Apply the conditioner from tips to roots using the praying hands method so each and every strand is penetrated. This will make your hair manageable for styling when your defining your coils.
Step 3: Apply Curl Enhancing Products

The jelly is formulated with a natural blend of Honey, Jamaican Black Castor Oil, Rosemary, Horsetail and other fine botanical ingredients.

Step 4: Scrunch and Finger Coils Your Hair
