    Section the hair at the recession on both sides to the crown and clip away.

    2

    Apply Awapuhi Wild Ginger HydroMist Blow-Out Spray to clean, dry hair at the scalp for added volume. Blow-dry the product into the hair and away from the face using a comb. Comb the hair smooth and clip to hold.

    3

    Use horizontal sections on top that are the same size as the Neuro Cell rollers.

    Place the Neuro Cell roller at the midshaft and wrap the hair around it.

    6

    Use the tail of a comb to feed the ends into the roller, then clip the roller on the side to avoid any marks on the hair.

    7

    Roll all rollers going back on a slight diagonal until the top is completed.

    On the side, roll the hair under and spray each section with Awapuhi Wild Ginger Finishing Spray. In the back, use a brick-laying pattern to avoid any partings. Continue rolling all the rollers under. As you reach the longer lengths—or if more wave is desired— switch to 2-inch rollers.

    9

    Allow all the rollers to cool completely before removing them. For maximum volume, brush the front and the top in the opposite direction that it was rolled. Brush all the hair out completely.

    Lightly back-brush the hair with a 413 Sculpting Brush to loosen the curl. Use the Teasing Brush for definition and refinement of the curls.
