this is right after a shower only about 70% dry so there is not a lot of definition to my curls yet. at 100% dry my curls are more defined and spirally. So in the shower, i only used conditioner, and left some in and detangled with my fingers only. out of the shower used my oil cream on my ends only and a leave in conditioner and aloe gel in the rest of my hair. then just let it completely air dry on it own. again this is not fully dry!
