Applying Rockin’ Ringlets: After rinsing, do not wring out your hair or put it up in a towel. Doing so can disrupt your curl pattern, and the towel trick can cause SERIOUS frizz. Instead, flip your hair upside down, pour a puddle of Rockin' Ringlets in the palm of your hand, rub hands together and gently rake your outstretched fingers through your wet hair 3-4 times. Scrunch to encourage curl.
Removing Water And Creating Curls: Cup a handful of curls in your palm and gently squeeze while lifting up towards your scalp. Repeat the scrunching all over hair. Next, scrunch your hair with a microfiber towel to remove excess water without jeopardizing your curl pattern. If necessary, apply a bit more Rockin’ Ringlets, depending on hair length and thickness.
Curly Clue: Terrycloth towels cause frizz. Microfiber soaks up water but helps curls keep their shape and remain frizz free.
Creating Confident Coils: Scrunch in 1-2 quarter sized puddles of Confident Coils Styling Solution. This will make sure that your curls stay well defined without puffing out later in the day
Curly Clue: Confident Coils is concentrated so if you find it was too heavy the first time, use less next time.

THE LAST STEP IS DRYING –with or without a hair dryer.
Hair Dryer Method - Use a diffuser to keep hair from frizzing. Diffusing generally gives curlier curls and greater volume, especially if you diffuse upside down. Gently scrunch while diffusing, and only until your hair is about 75% dry. After you’re done diffusing, DO NOT touch your curls until your hair is totally dry. Touching while it dries will cause frizz.
Air Drying - After scrunching your hair and arranging your curls the way you want them, it’s important to keep your hands OUT of your hair until it’s totally dry. This will preserve curl enhancement and keep frizz at bay.
Scrunch out the crunch - After air-drying until your hair is totally dry, gently scrunch out any crunch that you may have. Don’t do this until your hair is TOTALLY dry, or you could cause frizz. You will be left with soft, bouncy curls that hold up in humidity OR dry climates.
