Step-by-step Praying hands method 

You've just washed your hair or you're ready for a refresh. Grab everything you need during your styling routine. 

  1. You start on wet hair. Divide the leave-in conditioner or curl activator in your hands and grab a section of hair between your hands.
  2. Start at your roots and slide your hands down to your ends. 
  3. Repeat a few times on the same section of hair. This way you ensure that the product is well distributed over the entire crop. 
  4. You should now see that any fluff disappears and your curls form beautiful clumps. 
  5. Repeat these steps on the rest of your hair. 
  6. When you have distributed the leave-in conditioner or curl activator over your entire hair, continue with the gel. 
  7. Do the same with the gel. Apply some gel on your hands and divide it between your hands. 
  8. Take another strand and start at the roots. Repeat until you've had all of your hair. 
  9. Now you are going to scrunch gently. Make sure you do this slowly so that the clumbs stay together nicely. 
  10. Let your hair dry now or use a diffuser. And finished! Beautifully defined curls without frizz!
