Blow dry vigorously upside down till 90% dry. Smooth hair in sections using a large round brush to give bend to the ends. Starting with one to two-inch sections at the nape of the neck, spray section lightly with a thermal active spray, this will protect the hair as well as give it hold. Comb section smooth and run the flat-iron down the entire section once, to smooth and warm the hair to be curled. Wrap section around the flat-iron as shown starting close to the roots and slowly slide it through to the ends.
