After cleansing, conditioning with Natural Textures® Leave-In Conditioner, and detangling hair, apply Twist & Define in small sections from root to end then twist as desired. Spray with water if hair begins to dry before finishing. For very tight twists with extreme definition, twist hair while it is soaking wet. For more fullness and elongation, twist hair while damp. Air drying is recommended. You may use a luke warm hood dryer if time or weather requires. For twist-outs, undo twists and separate, only after hair is thoroughly dry. Use Twist & Define Cream for shingling, too, by applying section-by-section and combing through clean, detangled soaking wet hair with a wide-toothed comb. Dry completely before fluffing and separating for style by hand.
