“Give your hair a quick wring to make sure it’s not sopping wet and can’t take in any product. From there, when it comes to the order of applying products, I always say creams and leave-ins should go first because they don’t have any hold properties — they’re really just there for moisturizing. I’m using Bread’s Hair-Cream, which feels like a mix between a curl cream and leave-in. How much product you’ll use will depend on the density and porosity of your hair.
“When your product is really rich, less is always more — you can always add more, but it’s a lot harder to take it away! Personally, for me, I have high-density, high-porosity, and very thick hair. So it’s like, thirsty, thirsty, thirsty and wants all of the moisture. I normally get about two dollops of hair for me, but someone who has finer texture might need less.”
