  3. Divide your hair into 4 sections — 2 at the base of your head and 2 on top.
  4. Shake the bottle and apply 1 pump of the smoothing solution to each section of your hair. Do not go all the way to the scalp. Only apply the solution 3/4 of the way up the hair. Comb the solution through.

  5. Blow-dry your hair with a round brush, pointing the blow-dryer down at all times and holding it 2 inches from the hair to minimize steam. Use lots of tension to get the hair straight and smooth.
