This is my HG product. Before I discovered this i woild have to use about half a can of mousse to get my hair to behave, my hair it BSL I have a mixture of textures, the underneath being finer than the canopy, and it's prone to being a bit coarse and Frizzy.

I use the Amplifier alone, somethimes with a leave in.
I smooth and scrunch into it about 1 and 3/4 pumps, and then scrunch out any crunch once it's dry. Although I'm still experimenting with getting the right amount, and you will probably have to aswell. I find running it through soaking wet hair is best because it's quite sticky at first and it distributes better the wetter the hair is.

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!

Hiya godgivenperm. thanks for your routine!. well i was gonna use it today but i went straight yesterday for a party so i know i wont need to do anything to my hair today since i can get 2-3 days of being straight..the directions on the back of the bottle doesnt help much so i had to ask all u curlies how to use it. i just didnt wanna use too much and it weigh down my hair. sometimes i scrunch in products and sometimes i rake it in with also combing it in too..hopefully this can also be my HG too!

I used to use Curls Rock on a regular basis, but I haven't tried it in quite a while. I used to use this alone, just two pumps, rake through my hair upside down, and then I would diffuse dry. It really smoothed my curls, but sometimes it seemed to weigh my hair down on the second day, other times it would be fine two or three days. I may have to break it out again and try it.

I just got this too. My hair came out pretty well. I used 2 pumps and I think that was a little too much b/c my hair felt kind of producty even tho I scrunched out the crunch but that that's different... Overall pretty good!

When I use it, I use about 1 and 1/2 pumps on wet, not dripping, hair and just gently smooth and scrunch it in.
