Step 1: First apply the Leave in Conditioner to cleanly washed hair (mixed chick’s is a very recommended brand)

Step 2: Then apply Cantu Coconut curly cream, afterwards apply a small amount of Eco styler gel to the edges and the beginning of where you will start your french braid.

Step 3: Then after finishing your french braid, you then will use the Cantu Coconut curly cream and Shea moisture gel souffle around the whole head to start twisting up your hair to create the defined curls.

Step 4: Let the hair dry over night,  apply a silk scarf to keep everything intact while you sleep.

Step 5: Next after hair has dried apply some jojoba oil to the twisted plaits before you undo.

Step 6: After you have applied oil begin to separate the plaits, after all plaits are removed, you then can use an Afro pic to fluff up and separate the curls.

Step 7: You then can use a rat tail comb to smooth out the edges, along with a toothbrush to get the side of your hair and the back.

Step 8: You then will want to use a hair tie to wrap around the hair to close it into a high puff on your head.  Use a few bobby pins to secure the back and front so the hair will not unravel.
