Step 1 –  For a luxury cleanse and to get rid of dirt and daily product build-up, the hair was washed using the Moisturight Clarifying Shampoo. This was repeated and followed with the Moisturight Nourishing Shampoo and Conditioner.

Step 2  – For texture definition the Leave-In DetanglingMist was sparingly used to detangle and deposit moisture without leaving the hair with a heavy build-up. The hair was then blow-dried using a foam wrap lotion.

Step 3 – For the defined full-bodied waves through the hair, ceramic straighteners were used to create loose curls. These were then pulled through to form a wave.
