Us Curlies are obsessed with getting the perfect cast for our curls. If you are new to the SOTC method don't worry, all will be revealed.
Cleanse, condition and detangle as you would normally but remember to use cooler water when you rinse (this will help to seal the cuticle). We recommend the Gojiberry Mint Reviving Hair Rinse or the Hibiscus Pink Cleansing Co-Wash followed by the Coconut Almond Smoothing Conditioner or just using the Coconut Almond as an all-in-one co-wash. The Quinoa Repair Deep Conditioner can be used as your rinse out conditioner also.
Before you get out of the shower flip your head over and squish your soaking wet curls upwards. This can be on rinsed hair or apply some Avocado Kokum Curl Defining Smoothie for extra moisture.
Keep squishing your curls upwards removing as much excess water as possible then plop your curls for about 10 minutes into your curl towel or scrunch once or twice into your curl towel.
Remove towel. With your head tilted over start applying small amounts of the Acai Berry Fix Curl Defining Gel or Papaya Slip Taming Potion to the curls, working your way down to the tip. This method will probably require a little more gel that you normally would use. Encourage curl pattern by scrunching curls upwards.
Now this is when you STOP touching your hair with your fingers. Air dry or diffuse 100%.
SOTC - Scrunch Out The Crunch
Your curls should now feel a bit crispy. This is what you want! This means that each curl is protected in it's own cocoon. If your curls are 100% dry then start massaging the scalp with your fingertips to loosen the roots then scrunch through all your curls until they are soft and super defined. Using a pea-size amount of Inca Radiance Smoothing Elixir during this last step will give a beautifully glossy shine.
