I cut my hair last week, but I would use the carrot cream at night after showering while my hair as damp, with a comb. In the morning, I would wet a wash cloth with warm water, press it on my hair, then rub in the smoothie cream. Wait about 5-10 minutes, then comb it. Would be moisturized and curly all day. Did that process 3 times a week, sometimes 4.
