Week 1, 2, and 3

I will normally sit under steamer for 20 minutes or wrap hair in cap then wool hat for 45 minutes. Rinse DC out using warm water. Moisturize with The Mane Choice Hair Butter, ensuring that product coats each strand. I then seal with coconut oil.

Depending on how my hair/ scalp feels
Baggie method overnight or for 45 minutes (depends).
