This is a nice serum that I like to use before styling my hair. For me, I spray it all over my hair, careful not to use too much or else my hair would weigh down. Afterwards, i massage it into my hair and let it absorb a few minutes before I style my hair. Sometimes I curl my hair afterwards so it helps that it protects my hair from the heat. Other times, I use it as a hair serum and just braid my hair. I noticed that this helps my hair gets soft crinkles/waves. It’s great when you’re in a hurry.
