Apply Moroccanoil Treatment to damp hair, focusing on mid-shaft to ends, to create the perfect foundation for shiny, manageable strands. For extra texture, apply the Moroccanoil Root Boost through hair from root to tip.
Start blow drying the hair using your fingers until it’s about 70 percent dry. Finish drying the hair smooth using the Moroccanoil Boar Bristle Brush 35mm starting from front toward the back.
Section the hair into 1-inch pieces starting in the front. Using a 1-inch curling iron, curl each section, focusing on the mid-shaft (leave ends intact). Pin finished sections close to the scalp and continue through the whole head. Let hair cool in pins to set the texture.
Once hair is cooled, unpin each section and gently brush hair to expand curls using a wide-tooth comb.
To create the crown, take a small piece of hair from behind the ear and braid. Bring this braided piece from one side to the other and pin underneath the hair. If hair is too short to create full crown, create a braid on both sides and connect them on crown with a pin.
