Step 1: For best results, shampoo and deep condition prior to styling. This will keep your curls fluffy and not feeling weighed down.
Step 2: Set your wet hair with the ApHogee Keratin and Green Tea Reconstructurizer, Creme of Nature Perfect 7 Leave-In, and Mixed Chicks Leave-In Conditioner. Use product sparingly in order to avoid buildup.
Step 3: Section your hair into four quadrants and secure with butterfly clips.
Step 4: Starting from the nape of your neck, release a smaller section and smooth with a small tooth comb. If the ends are dry, add more water and product.
Step 5: Begin to wind the section from roots to ends similar to creating a bantu knot. To assure that the curl sets properly, make sure to wind tightly and neatly.
Step 6: Sit under the hooded dryer until completely dry.
Step 7: Once dry, gently separate your curls with your finger. The more you separate, the bigger the volume.
Step 8: For more height, pick at the roots. To avoid disturbing the definition, do not follow through to the ends.
Step 9: Scrunch in the Ouidad Mongongo Oil to instill shine.
Step 10: For polished edges, finish the look by applying the Kera Care Edge Tamer to your edges.
