2. Cleanse hair in lukewarm with product designed for your hair type, texture, condition and length. Use desired cleansing methodology such as shampoo, low poo, no poo, Diluted Shampoo (DS), Conditioner Only (CO), water only (WO).

If your hair is color treated be sure to utilize products or care methodologies which address the care and long term maintenance of your hair color.

3. Rinse out shampoo or similar. Apply a rinse out conditioner from the bottom of the ear lobes to the ends. Detangle with fingers or smooth toothed comb or wide tooth comb.

4. After detangling rinse with a cool/cold water rinse.

5. Towel blot to remove excess moisture.

6. Apply styling leave-in cocktail consisting of leave-in conditioner, defrisant, straightening cream, mousse or similar.

Note: If your hair is naturally wavy and you prefer to enhance those waves then select a product based on your hair type, texture, length and needs.

7. Use a comb to separate hair into 4-6 sections in a pie-slice style pattern.

8. Blow dry hair with a 100% boar bristle paddle brush and a blow dryer. To get hair completely straight apply pressure with the brush at the ends of each section.

Hold each section taut as you blow dry directly the air flow of the dryer down the section from the roots to the ends. This builds in natural shine.

Note: If you prefer to enhance natural waves you may prefer to use a long finger diffuser set on a medium speed with a cool setting.

9. When hair is 100% dry use a 1" barrel flat iron on individual 2" sections arranged in a pie-slice formation. Work around the head from side to side.

10. After hair is completely cool use fingers to arrange. If you wish to brush lightly to arrange hair use a boar bristle paddle brush.

11. Finish with a drop or two of shine serum massaged into the palms of the hands and lightly brushed up and over the top of the finished hairstyle.
