Apply mixed product to the first section, followed by combing the section using "medium tension" until hair is straight. Move to the next section and follow the previous application until the entire head is complete.

3. When Application is complete, "loosely" place any or enclosed plastic bag over the clients head to process for 30 to 55 minutes. If using an enclosed bag, be sure to cut one seam so that the bag may be placed over head loosely.

4. After desired processing time is complete thoroughly rinse hair with warm water, followed by a moisturizing shampoo/conditioner.

5. Blow-dry hair, flatironing is optional.
