  • works best if you haven't washed it in the last 24 hours.

  • I did not wash, just used some setting lotion on the ends, rolled it up with foam rollers and I have worlds of curls....and lots of compliments.

  • I remember for my wedding I was told to NOT wash my hair that morning, but the day before - that it would hold the curl better if it had a day's worth of "dirty" in it. My hair does not hold a curl well at all, never has, but it stayed nice that day!
