Hi tinicurlyd! Well ya know this is my favorite product and I use it alone.

I get the excess water out of my hair (I use a microfiber turban).

My hair is just below BSL so I take about 1 1/2 pumps of the product into my hands and rub them together to distribute it.

I rake the Amplifier through my hair but then I also comb it through my hair.
(I do that with all products tho).

Then I usually just let my hair air dry.

I love this product and I can get 2nd and sometimes 3rd day hair just by spritzing the next morning with water.

Good luck! Let me know how you like it!
No more PJ tendencies. Tigi Curls Rock Curl Amplifier is the best thing to make my curls rock all day! Next best are KCCC and Re:Coil +HE TT Gel.
