Wet hair using warm water. Next, massage a quarter-size of shampoo onto the scalp and hair using the pads of fingertips (not nails!). Rinse well, then follow with a quarter-size of conditioner, allowing to penetrate hair follicles for at least two minutes. To style, rub a nickel-sized amount of the Daily Hydrator into palms and work into hair while wet or damp. Allow the hair to air dry (or use microfiber towel) before styling as usual. Follow with a nickel-size amount of Crown Control. Work into wet to damp hair. Style as usual. The dryer the hair, the stronger the hold.
