This is a sticky, wet product so use sparingly. I use it on my wet hair (shoulder length, wavy). I coat index finger and the 'tall man', then finger spin my damp hair, about 1/4-1/2" 'locks' at a time, into banana curls after the shower. They dry that way. Then I use a 4" hair pick, head upside down, from scalp to ends. Fabulous product! Smells great. I hope once this delivery arrives I discover what I hope I ordered correctly.
