After washing and gently towel drying, apply Couture Colour Pequi Oil Treatment to nourish and protect the hair against thermal styling. Next, dry the hair thoroughly, applying additional Couture Colour Pequi Oil Treatment to serve as a UV protector against the sun and drying winds. After applying a small amount of the Pequi Oil to the hair, divide hair into 4 parts: top, sides and back leaving the nape area free.

Starting at the nape area and taking small sections one at a time, comb the hair before starting. Depending on the size of the wave or curl you desire, wrap the bottom half of the section around 1-3 fingers creating a large pin-curl type curl. Using the IT &LY HAIRFASHION Digital Styling Iron, take the open flat iron and carefully place the curl inside and clamp down, holding for 10-15 seconds.

Repeat if the curl is large or hair is thick so you have covered the entire diameter of the curl. Clip the curl and proceed to the next. If necessary apply additional Couture Colour Pequi Oil Treatment.

It is light weight and will not weigh the hair down. After completing the entire head, remove the clips and allow the curls to relax and fall naturally into place. Apply additional Pequi Oil to your hands and use your fingers to brush waves into place. Spray with a light hold styling spray to maintain the look.
