On damp hair, apply Dry Shampoo Paste 05 to palms of hands


Lace the fingers into the hair and apply product from roots to ends


Starting at the front hairline, create a horizontal section using the outer corners of the left and right eyes


Use a blow dryer and paddle brush to over-direct the hair at 45 degrees from the front hairline


Continue to blow dry in horizontal sections using the same reference points to complete the entire head


Use the remaining product and glide palms of hands on the sides of the head, and any other shorter pieces you wish to lay flat


Re-apply the next day onto dry hair for a lived-in style
