HOW-TO STEPS

  • 1

    Shampoo hair using John Paul Mitchell Systems Tea Tree Special Shampoo and rinse, then follow it up with John Paul Mitchell Systems Tea Tree Lavender Mint Moisturizing Shampoo.

  • 2

    Section off hair at the base and pin up the top section using a large clip. Run John Paul Mitchell Systems Tea Tree Lavender Mint Moisturizing Conditioner through the hair in small to medium sections and comb through with a large detangling comb and your fingers. 

  • 3

    Once detangled, section off the hair into quadrants and three-strand braid each section.

     

    Pro Tip: “If the amount of hair that your working with overwhelms you, take back the control,” says LaDonna. Sectioning the hair into organic quadrants, which are the opposite of hard, clean lines, allows you to easily manage the hair.

  • 4

    Place a shower cap over the braids and let sit under a steamer for 15 to 30 minutes. Then rinse out the conditioner with the braids still intact and dry using a microfiber towel.

  • 5

    Undo the braids and apply John Paul Mitchell Systems Tea Tree Lavender Mint Conditioning Leave-In Spray. Section off the hair and rake through John Paul Mitchell Systems Tea Tree Lavender Mint Moisturizing Defining Gel using your fingers.

  • 6

    Take a small section of hair and insert a small tapered barber comb (or your a finger) at the base. Starting close to the scalp, twirl the comb down the section continuously until you reach the end. Continue this step until the entire head is curled. If you need additional slip, use John Paul Mitchell Systems Tea Tree Lavender Mint Moisture Milk.

     

    Pro Tip: You may have to pull the comb through the hair, but if you find yourself tugging too hard you’ve either taken too large of a section or the hair needs to be detangled further.

  • 7

    Let the curls air dry. For styling, you can leave the hair as is or separate the coils using John Paul Mitchell Systems Tea Tree Lavender Mint Nourishing Oil.
